No sound on AMILO laptop

....hi there, a friend 'cleaned' my laptop and thought he was being helpful by putting xp professional on it. Anyway, after months of getting a little pop up window telling me that the copy of windows was not authentic, I tried to find the original disks it came with - couldn't. So I bought a new copy of windows xp. I put it on (Fujitsu siemens AMILO-EL) and now I have no sound??

Any ideas - ??

Hi, I am a friend of Keri who is helping her. We did the Windows update, no joy. We went to the Fujitsu site, entered the model number and we were told that there were no drivers available for it.

Any others ideas?

Keriandjelly,
Sounds like you need to update your audio drivers. There are a couple of ways you can do that, one being checking the manufacturer's support site and entering your model information to download the correct driver. Another that may work is a manual Windows update (click start, then all programs, then near the top of page you'll see Microsoft update/Windows update) and make sure when prompted you select Custom install rather than Express install, this will show you additional software and hardware updates that should include your audio card, and you can select/add the update for the device in question and the update should/could restore your audio.
Good luck.

    Is Fujitsu the PC Brand? That is what I meant about the manufacturer's support site (the PC's manufacturer/Brand). What Brand is this PC, and the model number please?

Would like to know if there is a way to install GIga Pocket without wiping wIndows Professional XP3 clean just to install Windows Xp Home Media Edition


XP Home Media Edition is technically a customized version of XP Pro. If you want to install the two versions side by side, you'll need to Dual Boot the computer, which requires changing the partition. There are various utilities out there that can do this, but it may end up causing problems for the older version of Windows. Do some research on setting up dual booting and decide if you're comfortable going that route. If not, consider having a technical friend or professional doing it for you.

I have only some Questions...what is the name of AMILO desktop Pi 3630?...can i change my hardware from vista to exp proffetional sp3?


Hi! What do you mean by what is the "name" of the amilo? It is a fujitsu siemens brand or you ment something else? As for downgrade, you can downgrade vista to xp if you got pro/ultimate of vista, if it came with vista home however, then you won't manage to do that. As for your hardware, well there speaks nothing against downgrading to xp as long as you have the xp drivers for your hw. You may run into audio problems though under xp sp3 if you are using the default hw setup of amilo. Please provide a full detail of your hw if you want to know whether all your hw has drivers for xp sp3. Let me know if this answered your questions :)

I recently bought an Amilio Laptop made by fujitsu Siemens I have tried two different wireless routers and cannot get the laptop to connect with either. It does have wireless built in. What am I doing...


Hi,

It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
  • the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
  • the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
  • it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hey im Sarah, So iv got old my old laptop. Its a Compaq Armada M700, it did run on Windows 2000 but my uncle put XP Professional Build 2600 on it. it works but i cant get the latest msn internet explorer...


A clean install would probably be the best thing to do.
Over time, all computers pick up bits and pieces of programs of patchs, and programs no longer used.
So with a clean fresh install, it will not have to deal with any of the "leftovers"

This is my personal choice any time I want to get the best performance out of an older machine, format and load.
