Dear Sirs,
Thank you for your help.
1- I checked every line of every page of BIOS setup but I could not find anything related to Onboard Soundcard. I unistalled the driver of the PCI Creative soundcard and restore system to the time point before installing the PCI Creative soundcard. My PC still showed "No Audio Device". So I returned to PCI Creative Soundcard.
2- I install the PCI Creative soundcard and do as your instructions and it works, I can record from this source.
Thanks again for your support.
Thanh Than

1a. Probably the moment that you inserted the PCI sound card the BIOS disabled automatically the onchip sound. Please go to BIOS and check if Onboard sound is enabled.
1b.If the BIOS is reporting ENABLED for Onchip Sound the most likely drivers were not unistalled properly from the first card. Please go to safe mode-->Device Manager-->Hardware Devices and Uninstall the Creative Card from there.

2. On the PCI Creative card you have not enable the microphone recording from the speaker icon or from control panel. (double click the speaker icon and then OPTIONS-->Properties-->Recording-->Microphone (Tick this)
Make sure that on Control Panel-Sounds and Multimedia the Audio Hardware is showing for the PCI Creative Card.

Regards

My dell 3100 desktops sound card is not working. it is integrated. i have ran a diagnostic and it states ther is no sound card installed, it used to work.


Hi! If diagnostic stated that there is no sound detected on it then the motherboard should be replace, because it's integrated .If the system is still in warranty call Dell. If not you can buy a PCI sound card and insert it to your motherboard pci slot. That should do the job. Hope that will help you . GOD Bless

My sund device wnt show up anywhere n my system(cmpaq evo usdt)


You should first check you have not accidentally muted it in both windows and on the speakers itself. Next go into Device Manager and check the sound driver is installed (no yellow exclamation marks can be seen).
If this has not resolved the problem then it is probably your soundcard. If you soundcard is integrated onto the motherboard then there may be further defects.
Check what internal ports you have free, there should be some long ports called PCI or PCI-e (not ports in line with the RAM). You can then buy a PCI/PCI-e sound card and it will just clip into the slots.
Hope this helps,

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO

My compaq evo d150 pc doesnt have a sound...i tried checking the devices but there were no drivers existing. I tried so many drivers but failed. i even tried putting an intex sound card but it didnt...


Sound on Compaq evo d150. The next site says:
http://www.orixrentec.com.my/hp_4.htm
Audio: "Integrated Intel Audio with Premium Internal Speaker".
So there should be a:
* speaker inside
* working on an Intel driver.

The chipset of the motherboard is Intel 845G.
The AC 97 audio driver can be installed by online detection of
your hardware using the Intel driver update utility:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/detect.htm

When using a PCI-slot for extra sound, the matching driver of the
PCI-audio-card should be installed. Of course external powered and wired speakers will be required as well.

Which graphics em i soppose to install that is competable


do u mean what graphics driver or graphics card.. most motherboards have a built in graphics chip integrated into the motherboard. Many HP and Compaq PCs do not have an AGP or PCI Express (PCI-E) slot on the motherboard and therefore it's not posible to add a graphics card

No sound card detected even though I can hear CDs from PC


first check that you are having no problems with your soundcard, go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to the soundcard.. If there is then try updating the drivers for it, or uninstalling it by right clicking it and choose uninstall then reboot the computer, the soundcard will be picked up as new hardware and should be installed again. Before you do this though you need to be sure that you have a pci soundcard actually installed and not an onboard chipset soundcard. If you have an onboard soundcard then it may not be good enough for games to be played. A lot of games require a minimum type of soundcard. Check to see what you have. Go to control panel as explained and write down the model number of your soundcard. Then check the minimum requirements for the game you are trying to play.

Soundcard


Hey there, the HP bios is pretty smart - it should automatically detect a new sound card and switch off the internal one when installed - alternatively you can go to the 'system devices' panel and disable it in the software as well.
hope this helps
cheers

New sound card for HP d530 small form factor..


You just have to look for a "low-profile" PCI card. Creative makes one, Audigy SE SB0570LPVP



Search that for a vendor, or low-profile for other manufacturers.
