Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
I have not been able to get the audio to work---it beeps at the bootup and hdd password screens, but I can't get a peep out of it in windows. What the heck is a "base system device"? whatever this is, may be my problem because I don't know what it is to install it. I tried trial and error, but the "wizard" only wants to go online, and doesn't find anything if it does (aka useless wizard).
Also, I can''t figure out what multimedia controller to install, and "help" is no help. This laptop has been pretty solid for me since fixing the power connector problem, all I need is to identify this base system device...anyone have a clue?

Base system device could be the audio on the motherboard or the audiocard itself. go to the page that has system devices and find your audio and supported devices and see if the latest driver is available. when you repaired the connector, I take it you had to pretty much remove everything to get to the board connector. could it be you didn't reconnect a connector? those thin film flat cable connectors can be a pain.
