You need to install the correct drivers. You should only install ONE sound driver.. Uninstall all the drivers for the sound system and then install one at a time or install the correct one for the mainboard that is installed in your system. reply to me if you still have issues.

My desk top doesn't work and I tryed reinstalling windows xp but I lost my key. and the comp. does even make to windows. so I can't download anything

1> If you own a Dell, HP, or any of the major brand PC's, your windows key will be located on a Microsoft sticker on your computer case. Jot down the number and try reinstalling.

2> If you don't find a key number on the outside, you may be able to use the recovery feature on some brands. If you restart your PC and watch the screen, you might see something like; "press <some key> to enter recovery mode". When you reboot and see that message - press the key and follow the instructions. Read carefully.

5> If you can't find the key on the outside of the case and you don't have a recovery feature built in, then you can go here to either get a new key (if you have the full retail version CD) or contact your PC manufacturer.

2007 Beetle convertible, window doesn't drop

Possibly just a relay telling the window to lower slightly has gone bad. If it's only when the top is put up or down, you can either lower the windows yourself (most cost effective since it's not a major inconvenience), take it to a dealer if you are still under warranty, or check to see if there is a sensor or relay that has gone bad, causing this malfunction.

How to reinstall the acer edata security data management.

To reboot the system click on Start and then on the shutdown menu choose restart or shutdown.
If this error happens with a bluescreen and white writing then you will have to press the power button for about 5 seconds to force it to shutdown.
To reinstall the eData software use the Acer software CD that came with your computer to reinstall it or download it from Acer :

Select it from the Empowering Technology and Utilities section.

Good Luck

Radio and HVAC displays are dark. Minor problem, or major danger?? HELP??

It sounds like you just have a fuse blow. Read you instruction manual to find where the fuses are located and see if there is one for the HVAC and radio (there are usually fuses in a compartment under the steering wheel and under the hood). If its a fuse then you just pop out the old one and put in the new one. You can tell if the fuse is blown by seeing if the little metal strip in it is in one piece or two and if it looks black. Fuses are very inexpenisve and easy to fix. This doesnt sound like a serious problem and the car should work fine, just no lights on the HVAC and radio.
