I would suggest that you uninstall the software drivers ( if they are listed in CONTROL PANEL), turn off computer, take out the sound card, and turn computer on, let it do its thing. Turn off the computer & reinstall the sound card.What should happen is that Windows will "see" and try to reinstall the software drivers.If u have the CD_sound drivers, then use cd to REinstall.If that don't work your sound card could be damaged [I hope not!]
The reason why u do it that way is that u have to let windows_registry get the 'gooks' out of her.

Microsoft windows 8 update causes all my downloaded apps to disappear as well as all my pictures, videos, and documents from my libraries


i think this is happening due to two reasons
1) Your are not using Microsoft account user and have chosen a local user.
2) possible issues with windows 8 version you have - i didn't face it for 1.5 years of Windows 8 which i had.
Solutions
1) Use Microsoft account - they can keep all your apps in onedrive - so this gets automatically downloaded everytime.

2) Try to update to Windows 8.1 version - which is way better than Windows 8.

Hope this helps.

I have windows xp professional 2002, service pack 2 and the sound and sound icon disappeared


Sounds like either the hardware has become disabled or you lost your audio driver. To check this Right click the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" A Computer Management window will come on the left hand side select device manager. This pulls up a list of every piece of hardware in your computer. If anything has a yellow " ! " next to it then the computer sees the hardware but can not run it due to an incorrect or missing driver. If there is a red " X " next to it then it has been disabled. To re-enable a component right click the icon and select enable. Finding the correct driver may be difficult, if you bought the computer from a store try going to the manufactures website. Go to Drivers/Support, usually you can type in the Model or Serial number of your computer and pull up every driver you may need.

Does anyone know how to add the pc beep slider back to the master volume properties? it's disappeared as an option.


1.Go to control panel>sound and audio devices>on the tab of device volume , click advanced. You will see sliders (master volume window), go to options>properties>tick the "PC Beep" to make it appears in volume control. Now just unmute it

2.If this doesnot work,try this
Control Panel. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Properties, then the Sounds tab.
Changing the Sound scheme to Windows Default should get it back to normal. If it’s already on Windows Default, you can try setting it to No Sounds, click Apply, then set it back to Windows Default and Apply again.
If that fails, I think you’d have to reinstall the sound drivers.

Hi mate...


Hi there. It sounds like the XP you have installed doesn't have the correct/updated driver for your sound card. Try installing the most current Sound driver from the manufacturer's website. It would also be a very good idea to download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft, as this will have added support and drivers in the database.

Let me know if it works

Thank you

Tim
