Question about AOpen F55JS (Black, Silver) 15" LCD Monitor

Do I need a driver for my speakers?

So I just re-formatted my home-made computer- in hindsight... I probably didn't prepare as much as I thought I did. In any event, I got everything up and running, my old version of windows XP pro installed back up, beginning to get all my updates (including SP2) re-installed, and although I have all the cables hooked up... my speakers on my monitor won't go anymore. Kind of a bummer. Maybe do I need a driver? If anything came WITH the monitor 4 years ago... I don't have it any more. Why won't my speakers recognize??

    Of course, I'm at a different computer this instant, but does it matter that when I plug in USB headphones, I get sound out of them? Do they use the same driver as my monitor would, or would they have their own driver?

Ok " if your sound card is built in to the board and you put in a
PCI sound card in , you have to go into Bios and reset it for pci.

When you start your computer up look on the monitor , it will tell you to hold down a certain key to to get in to Bios , then you can reset it.

also you can find out what sound card you have and down load the driver from that Company.
go to there web site.

Your speakers will only function with an audio input from the PC.
So the sound card needs its driver.
If it is an onboard[part of the mother board] sound card then it resides on the utilities disk or you can download it typically Realtek 97 seems common here.
If the card is an separate entity [in a PCI slot t]then check out where the driver is for that -on a CD somewhere in your pile I guess.

    The sound card driver activies auio
    The route the audio takes to the out put device is something else.
    So if your USB cans get the sound - the soundcard/driver is not an issue. The speakers in the monitor can be passive- that is it reys on the computer sound system for volume muting and all that.
    or they can 'active'- that is need software to pass through the monitors system.
    You can deterimie which way by checking if the monitor has sound controls- if it has then you need to a driver to fire up the moniter

What does format do?

Format wipes everything off the memory card or the internal memory, preparing it for use. It's the exact same thing as formatting a disk.

If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since then, you may be able to recover most of your pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software." Find a program for your computer and operating system. Put the memory card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

Windows cannot connect to system event manager

If this problem has not existed for very long try doing a System Restore to a time prior to it starting.

Do you have more than one user profile on your system, if so, have you tried logging in with a different profile to see if the problem exists globaly or just in your normal profile? If the problem is with your profile only then this would suggest that the profile is corrupt and you should create a new profile if you don't have another already.

Another option is to run the System File Checker utility to determine if you have any corrupted or missing critical Windows files.

Lastly try temporarily disabling your AntiVirus and Firewall software then try to access the Event Viewer management console - it is probably best to have your computer disconnected from any internet access when doing this. If this succeeds then check for any events related to the error in opening the Event Viewer - you may find it easier to clear all the current events first then recreate the error and look at the logs again to identify the most current and relevant entries.

How do I format a dvd disc

You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD

Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

I am studying in a university in which i am taking up bachelor of science in management accounting, and we have a screening test before we can step to accountancy,, will i pass the screening? please...

I currently compute a 65% probability that you will fail your upcoming screening test.

This is based on the fact that rather than preparing for this important event, you instead choose to waste your time in front of the computer surfing the web.

Good luck anyway.

Have all disks that came with machine,can't find info to reinstall windows XP Home

most machines sold recently don't have an installation disc, but rather set aside another partition to format, and repair installations. When booting on the machine, try pressing F8, or F12, F2... I'm not exactly sure which Function key it is, but one of those will pop up a boot loader menu, where you can reinstall windows from here on out.
