Re: vist Home standard

Roger, This sounds like more of a hardware issue, Check the BIOS for any changes. I would set to system defaults.
Try to boot to safe mode see if there are any driver issues.
You didn't mention how old it is. I assume the it is still under warranty. In that case I would let the factory take care of it.

I need an ati driver hd 2300 for vista

Yes there is a solution, pop the restore cd rom (the one you got when you bought the computer) into the disc drive and restore windows, that will reinstall everything, but you will loose whatever you install after you bought it and you need to save stuff in your document folder to a thumb drive first. Or you can purchase the new window 7 OS. Always make sure you have an antivirus program running. Contact me if you need further help.

What standard audio driver can be install on my pc...

There are a couple generic audio drivers. But before that why are you looking for standard audio drivers? Regardless which OS you are using (Win XP, VISTA), you will find a generic set of audio drivers included with the OS. This is for basic audio output. If you have a specific audio card installed you should be using the drivers from the manufacturer to get the best quality from the card. Although odds are you do not have an add-on audio card. Chances are you are using the audio out puts supplied on the motherboard. This is far more common now because motherboard manufactures are able to get pretty great sound from on-board mounted audio processors.

If this is the case then those are the drivers you want.
If this is a pre-built system you should go to the computer makers web site and grab the drivers there. If it's a home brew computer check out the motherboard makers web site.

If you want to download the best possible fit for the majority of on-board audio as well as add-on cards that would be Realtech. Just click the link and when the web page open click the check box. When the next window opens find your OS and click go for the drivers.

Steps for installing audio drivers that came with the OS:

  • Click "Start" and "Control Panel." Then double-click "Administrative Tools" and "Computer Management."
  • Choose "Device Manager" in the field on the left-hand side of the screen.
  • Look for "Sound, video and game controllers." Click the plus sign (+) next to that field. This will expand a list of devices under sound, video and game controllers, which will include your sound card or on-board sound device.
  • Right click on your audio driver in the list and select "Update Driver."
  • Follow the instructions and Windows will automatically search for and install any driver updates.
I hope this helps.

Have you tried the windows update,usually for vista they have a built-in WDM drivers for ATI, and right now you may want to use that for the meantime if the computer did not recognize the exact model number also when using the windows update it you can check if microsoft has a new WDM driver for your video card.

The video card is a built-in video card on the mobo, right?
