Show to install sound device driver in windows xp ?

  • 1 Insert your driver disk into the CD/DVD ROM drive. The disk should automatically boot. Then follow the on-screen instructions. This usually entails clicking on "Install" or "Install Sound Driver."
  • 2 Download the sound driver specific to your card and Windows XP. Driver websites include Drivers Kit, XP-Drivers and Driver XP. Locate the make and model of your card. Click on the manufacturer and then select the "Download" link.
  • 3 Double-click on the sound driver. The application will go through a setup process. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Manual Installation
  • 1 Click on the "Start" menu. Select "Control Panel," then scroll to "Add Hardware" and click to open. Sometimes, the automatic installation does not work properly. You will then need to install the sound drivers manually.
  • 2 Read and use the "Add Hardware Wizard." Click the "Next" tab. Windows XP will scan your computer for components.
  • 3 Scroll down the list to "Audio Drivers" or "Sound Drivers." Then click "Next." Select the "Finish" tab. Another window will appear.
  • 4 Select the "No, Not This Time" option on the "Hardware Update Wizard." Click "Next." Choose the "Install from a List or Specific Location" button. Then click the "Next" tab again.
  • 5 Place the sound driver disk in the CD/DVD ROM. Point the "Search Option" to your CD/DVD ROM or download folder. Click the "Include This Location to Search" box. Type in the path to your download folder or select the "Browse" option. Search through the computer to choose your download application. Click "Next."
  • 6 Wait until the file installs. This takes approximately two to three minutes. Turn up your speakers and reboot your computer

    Hp CD\DVD rom not reading CDs, but is reading DVDs?

    cd/dvd rom is probably not working ,try using a lense cleaner disc if that doesn't work it's cheap enough to just install a new drive DVD/Rw as they are about £20.00 new.

    The dvd rom drive does not read nor write

    Sounds like it could be a faulty drive. Will it play any CD/DVD like a data or music one?

    Up-grading the operating system.

    You have to buy the upgrade then put disk in cd rom drive and restart computer. I would back everything up first though.

    Windows xp wont reload

    This happens so much with upgrades! We think we are making our pc's better, and then find it doesn't like it. I am assuming you completely uninstalled millenium, then tried to load xp? If you did not, the registry still has parts of millenium on it, and is asking for this. You need to completely uninstall millenium first. You need to obtain mill copy, and select uninstall, then when done, put in your new xp disk and try again. Lilacgerry xxx
