You could have changed the OS that the device was running on. Try unplugging device, then turning off computer and plugging it back in. Then restarting computer, that should work.

If you have a speaker icon at the lower right side of your screen, right click on that. Click on playback devices. A window should come up with your devices. If you have a sound card or graphics card and want to use either, make sure you're hooked up or that they are recognized. If the window is empty, right click on it and click "disabled devices", if you then see your device right click on it and enable it. You can also try, Click "start", find control panel and click on to open. Find "device manager" and right click on and open. Click continue. Click on the box with + next to "sound video or game controllers". A drop down should show your devices. Right click on each one individually, starting with one you want to use. If you see "enable" click on that. Right click on it again and click on properties. You should see a window with "this device is working properly". Right click on it one more time and click update and let it update. If you are using a sound/graphics card, that might need an update. Let me know what manufacturer and model you have and I acn help with that.

Absolutely no sound from the computer at all and yet the sound test says everything is working properely... have gone on the net to try to fix with no luck


did you check to see if the speakers are muted, Go to the little speaker icon in the tray (toward the right), left click on it and open the "mixer", you should be able to see if the sound is muted there. If it isn't muted, try plugging in some earphone and play some music or something you know works on your computer. If you hear sound from the earphones, then you know your sound fuction is ok and that the problem may be the spearkers ( if this is a laptop, you could still have a spearer problem, but more difficult to fix) hope this helps.

My acer 4310 connects fast to wi-fi pero pag internet cable na as in ung dsl hindi gumagana


Hi there,


When you plugged in the ethernet cable, does it show on your windows tray (lower right corner of the screen) that the LAN is connected? It should show you "Connected" if you hover your mouse on the LAN icon.

Try also to plug in the ethernet cable to a different port on the router, and that the port number on the router is showing a solid green led light.

If all has been observed and still you cannot connect, look if the network adapter for your lan is working. RIGHT click your My Computer or "Computer" and select Manage. The Computer Management window will open. Click on the Device Manager on the left to show the list of devices on the right. Look for Network Adapters and click the + sign. See if your LAN adapter is not showing any yellow exclamation point. Also, right click on it and select Properties. You should see the device is working properly under status.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My laptop won't come on.


go to
Start - Control Panel - Classic view - Administrative tools - Computer Management - Device Manager
and look to see if it shows up on the right, if you see "unknown devices" regarding ur webcam and it's not showing, guess what...it doesn't recogize it.
So, simply go download the driver for it (find it on google or on motherboard site), then go to device manager, and uninstall the device, or simply restart the computer, and it should auto attempt to install it. :) install the drivers properly and u will find it working.

if not solved then problem with ur camera

Cannot show self to others, screen remain black but video is on.


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

Firewire/USB 2.0 both dont work..


Plug in the device( kmake sure hard drive is connected inside) Go to computer management(right click on my computer and select manage) on the left pane select disk management on the right pane you'll see the drives(If a screen pops up saying about initialize disks, then proceed with that) in the right pane if you see any unallocated volumes(big black box, full black) with the same size of your disks then you can right click on em and create a partition! The Create partition comes up and give you options to format and everything, after that completes you'll see the drive in My computer! If you don't see the unallocated drive, then go oer the drive and account for all of em, if there an extra one without a drive letter then that could be your disk! If you have any problems or this isn't the problem, please let me know! regards, babb
