Hello intercity

You need to download and install the drivers for your mainboards audio or other sound card.

You can find the drivers from the manufacturers website or if you know the model of the soundcard or motherboard from theyr websites directly.

SOURCE: reinstall windows xp pro

Ok firstly, you will need to get rid of Vista all together before you can Install XP, Use a partition program to do this, You can find a bunch just by typing partition software into google, Delete the main partition that windows is on, Then create a new partition, then format that partition as a Primary partition, I always use the NTFS format just for stability and it can handle larger files than a 32 Bit partition, when you have done that then you need to get a bootable windows xp and I think you have that if set up is starting but hanging. Just go through the windows setup and you will be done. BE AWARE that you will loose everything thats on the drive by doing this so backup what you want to keep before you start, Always an idea to get the XP drivers for the system as well, The Vista drivers WILL NOT work on an XP system

Hope that helps.

If you run into problems then let me know and I will help you with it

Compaq Presario 2050NX onboard pnp nic (LAN) device not found - reinstalled onboard LAN device driver, still can't see it


For Windows XP CLICK HERE
In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically
I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver.
If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.

Just bought a couple of HP 8100 Elite desktops. How can I downgrade them to Windows XP pro ?


You would have to buy yourself a copy of XP pro and do an OS reinstall. The XP pro should come with a COF key. When you do that you will need to install all the drivers for your computer. Check at the manufacturers website and download all the drivers for your PC that work with windows XP. Do this first then do the OS install.

try reinstalling Windows 7 and see if your sound works then. If it doesn't, then I would say that it just happened to be a coincidence that your sound went out when it did and that your onboard sound is burned out.

You may want to check the hard drive - sounds like it may be starting to fail. When it reaches the point of not continuing does it start to click? If you hear clicking then the drive is having issues and its time for a new one.

Installing New Graphics Card.How do you disable the onboard GC?


To disable the onboard graphics go into your CMOS settings and in there you should find something that says Graphics choices should be onboard or add on or some other form. It all depends on who made your BIOS. As far as a sound card not sure.

No audio


Hi

Quite likely, drivers for the audio controller is missing/not installed.

You did not give any info on the Operating System you installed and the sound card in question; Onboard or PCI Sound Card. I am assuming you have Windows XP or 2000 and using the builtin/onboard sound controller.

If this is correct, you will need to download and install ADI Onboard Sound Driver (Windows 2000/XP) - http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R94481.EXE

Let me know how you get on

No Sound....


The drivers on the HP site are for Windows 98, Me. Try the drivers off the ESS site. Find the appropriate Allegro driver for Windows XP (or try each of them). Good Luck.
