Hi, once you Updated your "Laptop" to Vista; now you need to [Update] the Drivers! This is what you need to do, click on the "Start Button," now scroll to find: "Microsoft [Windows Update], click on it to open, and select to "Check for "Updates." Next, you can (Manually) go to the "Device Manager," in the Control Panel. Go back to the Start Menu and open the "Control Panel, open the [Hardware and Sound] applet. Next open the Hardware Icon to which ever Device aren't working, open the Device; select in each the "Drivers, [check the status, working...], click on the "Update Driver" button, once the Drivers have been updated, restart the Computer. Now, for [Hardware Devices] that may be a little more difficult to Update, you will need to go to the "Acer Manufacturer" "On-line" to get the Drivers; hopefully you won't have to. I'm putting this "Website" for you to go to: [http://www.bootwin.com/search/acer+aspire+5315+xp+wireless+driver], if the site do not "HyperLink" just "cut and paste" to your (Search Browser). "If your problem is fixed, let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating, thanks."

Run a Hardware Factory Reset A hardware factory reset should be used as a last resort to fix a GS4 . The process will delete all stored information on the GS4 and return the device to its factory configuration; you won't be able to back up your data if you're getting the BSOD. Prepare the phone for the hardware factory reset process by performing a battery reset and pulling out the memory card. You can remove the back panel by pulling on the indentation near the power button. You can leave the SIM card in the device. After you've closed the device, plug it into the charger to avoid losing power during the reset process. To initiate the recovery menu, boot the GS4 by holding the "Volume Up," "Home" and "Power" keys. On the "Recovery" menu, use the volume keys to select "Wipe Data/Factory Reset." Then press the "Power" key to initiate the hardware factory reset.

On the motherboard you can remove or short the battery backup of the CMOS (the chip that holds the software part, which is called the BIOS). This will reset the BIOS to factory defaults.

If you've ensured the correct services are running and the correct drivers are installed/attempted to be installed, I'd say there's a good chance you're experiencing a hardware problem. The easiest way to test that is w/ a Linux Live CD or to perform a factory OS reinstallation. If you don't want to restore the the computer, try booting a computer up w/ a Ubuntu install cd, and try running the OS live (w/out reformatting/installing the OS), and test the sound. I recommend Ubuntu because the driver support is pretty good. With that said, if it doesn't have the correct sound driver for your hardware, this solution will not help us out, so at that point, I'd recommend reinstalling Windows and see if your sound works. If it doesn't work after the OS reinstallation it's a hardware problem.

Where cain i gate audio output device installed for my laptop


First installations of Vista some times fail to detect the hardware on older systems, like my Dell Inspiron 9100 laptop. However, after running Windows Update several times automatically detects the missing drivers and installs them automatically.
Try that, if that is your case. Other than that, try uninstalling the device using Device Manager, and immediately reboot the system. Vista will detect the missing hardware and will reinstall it from its list of known drivers. As your last resort, try going to your system's manufacturer's web site and go to the Support page. Most manufacturers have a Drivers Download page.
Good luck!

AMILO Li 2727 Can't Detect New Hard Drive


My feeling is that there is a problem with the interface where the hard drive hooks up into.

Best thing to try just to verify it, reset the BIOS to factory defaults and reboot the laptop and see if it recognizes the hard drive then. If it doesn't then go back into the BIOS and just make sure in the BIOS where it detects the hard drive that its not disabled.

If you do these two things and the hard drive still isn't recognized then you know without a doubt that the motherboard is bad.
