SOURCE: No audio device found

Download Driver Cleaner Pro v.15 from the link. Also, download, and save on your desktop, a clean version of your Sound Card drivers. Run DCPv1.5 and remove all of your audio drivers, plus any possible problem drivers (i.e., if you installed generic drivers to try and get your card to work). After you uninstall, reboot, install your downloaded drivers and reboot again. This should fix your problem, if not please post an update to this thread and I'll continue troubleshooting with you.

I have acer aspire 3000 notebook. i have switching off problems with that before. one of ur expert told me to open back cover and take memory sticks out and put them back. i did that but now i donot hear...

Right click "My Computer," "Properties," select the Hardware tab, Device Manager. Go to Sound, Video, and Game Controller. Find the integrated sound device, right click. Select properties. Confirm that "device is working properly." If it is, you have the correct drivers and your issue is a hardware or codec issue. If it is not working properly, go to Acer's website and download the correct sound drivers for your laptop. This should solve your problem.

I installed winxp on the ibm 664312u systems - since then i have problems with sound, network connections and video. help

Go to your Device Manager and see which specifically needs the driver.

1. Right click on "My Computer"
2. Select "Manage"
3. Click on "Device Manager"
4. On that right side you will see all the devices your computer has.
5. Click on the device category that you suspect is not working and the ones with yellow exclamations (or question mark) needs driver or correct drivers installed.

To download the drivers go to your vendors (your system model) support web site ( i.e.Dell, HP, Acer, etc ) and download the drivers unto your USB portable drive. Use a friends or other good computer to access the Internet. After that copy all drivers into your desktop ( or create a Driver folder and copy it there) . Go to that Driver folder and double click on them to execute or unzip.
Go back to your Device Manager and right click that device with yellow exclamation and update driver. You may have to point to the right location of that driver on your PC.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's

In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)
