I don't have any sound on my computer's internal speakers or my headphones after installing windows 7 pro on my averatec a2 all in one pc, can anyone help me?


You probably just need to install some fresh RealTek drivers. Normally, Windows Update should address this problem but if it doesn't then you can find the drivers you need here:

And choose the High Definition Audio drivers for 64 bits Windows 7.

Kodak webcam DVC323 not compatible with windows vista pls help..thank you


If the XP drivers don't work, then you're out of luck on this one. No one writes generic drivers for Webcams for Windows Vista.

Please rate this solution to show your appreciation!

I was told to reformat my computer. I don't know how. Can you help?


Actually, it's not recommended without know how to do it since it should be done by a professional or by an experienced engg/tech. Well, before you decide to format, you'll need a Windows cd, if you wish to install Windows xp, you'll need a Windows XP original CD or if you wish to install Windows Vista, you'll need a Windows Vista DVD, in the same way with Windows 7. Note: Formatting means wiping out everything from your computer, usually C drive so that you'll be able to install another copy of Windows, which means you'll first format the C drive and then install a new copy of Windows, without Windows being installed, you computer will never run, it's similar to a useless or dead machine. I don't mean only Windows, same conditions apply with Linux or Mac.
If you want to try yourself following the instructions, let me give you few links, but it's not a simple and short process, and I won't take the risk if you fail (this is why I'd mentioned that it's a job to be done by a pro). Here are few links from BlackViper.com regarding Installing Windows. Follow the link/s and follow the instructions, there might be several pages, so make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page/s and click "Next Page" if you are done with the first/previous page. Before you begin, please read the full tutorial/s so that you will know what exactly you're going to do with your computer. If you can still boot up your computer, make sure all the files are moved from C drive to another partition or I would recommend backing up your computer's files.

Need driver software


hi westy001, if you are using windows vista home premium or higher and recently gone through windows update, the camera may not work for it. but if you are using windows vista home basic and below, you may use any generic USB jpeg webcam driver. same with any chinese usb jpeg webcams. here is a link where you can get some of the drivers.

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/category/PC_Camera.html

http://www.10001downloads.com/s/swd-s422-drivers.html

PLS. NOTE: I have downloaded drivers from the same site in the past and using the same site techs have tried is very recommended for your computer's safety.

hope this helps, should you have other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.

best regards,

voodoo

Vx-7000 webcam will not connect on msn messenger


Hi iainrusk,
what operating system are you using (following Microsoft, this webcam will work with Windows Vista™ or Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) only)? Are you using one of them?
If yes, please disconnect the camera from your computer, open the device manager of your computer and maximize that window. Now connect the camera to the computer (preferably to one the the USB-ports of the computer, not to a USB-hub!) and watch what is going on at the device manager. Normally the cam should be installed without problems and then you can see the respective entry under "Audio, Video and Gamecontroller". If not, the entry "Unknown device" should appear within the "USB-controller" section. In case this is happening, you should disconnect the cam. install the software which came with the cam and - after you did so - reconnect the cam again. Now everything should work fine...
If not, please come back here and let us know!
Good luck and greetings from Germany,

I cannot install my stingray web cam to my computer as it is not compatable to vista can you please help


Hi there!

Can you install it at other operating systems like XP, 2000, etc.?

Please check your webcam manufacturer's website and verify if it supports Windows Vista. It might be a driver compatibility issue.

Hope this helps!

I need to reset my my computer t180 aspire please help


Hi,

If you are looking to install or up-grade the your computer to Windows Vista then the first thing you need to look at is the Hardware compatibility, I understand that you are using Acer Aspire T180 computer which must have had very high configuration, however I recommend you to please check if the system is 100% compatible with the Windows Vista software as there is no harm in just making sure of what it is rather than running into issues later so with the help of the link below you can download and run the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to know the system compatibility.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=42B5AC83-C24F-4863-A389-3FFC194924F8&displaylang=en

Then once you know that the system is compatible with the Vista, you can now start the installation wizard. However do not worry, about the installation wizard asking you where to get installed as it is quite normal, you will have to provide the system with the hard-drive information, for it to get installed. The best way is to go with the default option that you see on your screen. Here are few links below through which you can download the guide for how to Up-grade to windows vista as well as for How to install Vista step-by-step. Download the guides and use them for you assistance.

Windows Vista Up-grade/ Migration Guide

Windows Vista Business vs XP


Vista is a huge change for you then. I understand your frustration.


It really just depends on what your used to, your PC specs,etcs..

You do not need to buy a new computer just to have XP.

What you can do is erase Vista off the new sony, and install XP. I can help guild you if you like, on the phone it's almost a 1-3 hour talk. Depending on your experience etc..


It's an easy process downgrading to XP, all you need is:
1.A XP Disk.(The Windows XP Operating System Disk)

That's it, you get that and we can down grade your Sony to XP.

I recommend people get vista for a secondary PC like have a desktop that you do your work on, and if you have a laptop get vista on it as your personal computer. But on the desktop being your work keep it as is.


Let us know what you decide,

Thanks and I hope this helps,
