Click on Start --> Control Panel --> Sounds, Speeches and Audio Devices

On the computer's native volume control, make sure nothing is muted.

If you have a sound card installed, reinstall the installation CD that came with it. If you no longer have the CD, go to the manufacturer's website and get the software from their website.

In many cases, when you go to "Sounds, Speeches, and Audio Devices," you can look for a particular item that has a yellow exclamation point beside it, and tell Windows to reinstall any missing drivers.

My computer has no sound device detected

The computer could be having some problems with its driver which is responsible for making the system to communicate with its sound card. There are two ways that you can do to make it work. You can do a system restore (restoring the computer to known good date) and by downloading the updated sound driver which you can get from the website of your computer's manufacturer.

System Restore

1. Click on start or the pearl button>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore
2. A window will open up. Select the date when your computer was still working fine.
3. Follow the instructions that will appear on the screen and let it finish until it will tell you that the restoration is complete.

Note: System restore won't affect the files and documents that you have saved in your computer. But, it will remove the programs and updates which happened after the restoration date that you will be selecting. Updates and changes in the computer's programs sometimes are the reasons for some corruptions in the system.

Driver Update or Installation

Go to the website of your computer's manufacturer. Then, look for support and downloads. Select drivers or drivers and downloads. Put in the model of your computer and look for the sound driver. Install it.

If you still have some problems right after doing the above mentioned steps, then message me. Just post your message here.

Thank you for using

I have inadvertantly deleted the microsoft office word 2003 from my computer, now i can know longer get on to spread sheets, word etc....can you/I fix thisand get the program back?


You can retrieve the program by doing a system restore. System restore will restore will restore your computer to a certain time to the past of your choice. All the programs that you have uninstalled will be retrieved. Here's the procedure.

(for windows 7 and Vista)

1. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu.

2. You will immediate see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point.You have two options - recommended restore and choose a different restore point. Select the second choice.

3. Look for the date when you still had the MS office in your computer. Click next

4. Confirm the restoration and the computer will restart.

5. After the restart process, the computer will tell you whether the restoration is complete or not.

6. If it's not successful, repeat the same procedure but use a different restore point now. If the restoration is successful, then, check your MS office 2003.

(For Windows XP)

2. Once the menu opens, just select a restore point and follow the onscreen instructions. The computer will restart and MS office will come back to your computer.

I hope this helps.

Hello nativepride4, the best thing to do to recover the Computer back to an 'Earlier Date!'
Is to do a "System Restore."
"Follow these instructions carefully!"
  • Click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_50.jpg on the Desktop screen.
  • Next, click on "All Programs" scroll to find "Accessories."
  • Now, select the "System Tools."
  • "You will see, in the next window that opens!"
  • "System Restore." paul7of9_119.jpg
  • "This is very important! "
  • "Once you click on the "System Restore, shortcut!"
  • It will start to look for the "last known 'time and date,' of a change in the Computer.
  • ie; "Deleted Adobe Flash." paul7of9_52.jpg

Important!: The [System Restore] can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run; so be patient!

Warning:"Do not try to do any type of work. Do not 'touch' the [Keyboard] for any reason."

  • Let the (Restore) run it's configurations.
  • Once the "System Restore" finds the correct "Date and Time" of the event?
  • Choose the Date closest to the time of the 'occurrence'. paul7of9_120.jpg
  • Next, click on the [Next Button]. paul7of9_121.jpg
  • Now, once again, "there will be a message," telling you 'not' to do anything with the Computer.
  • "The System Restore will 'run' for a while; so once again be patient!"
  • The computer will then; "Shutdown and Restart."
  • "Lo-gin" if you have to; but!
!Attention: "Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop 'window' opens; because the {System Restore}, 'will' still be running."

Wait! "Until there is a 'message,' letting you know the {Restore} of your System was successful!"

"Please let me know if you 'need' further assistance, or the 'solution' helped? "By posting a 'Comment" or 'Rating' the solution. Thank you; your 'response' is important to me!"

I need to restore factory settings on my Compaq Mini 110 netbook, can anyone tell me how to do this?


to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

Good luck.

MX8711 notebook, no sound


Although gateway doesn't provide free phone support for Refurbished models all of the original software can be restored individually from the restore set(assuming you made it) or downloaded for free from gateways website.

If it's simply an issue with the update causing a problem, try re-installing the sigmatel audio driver from the driver and applications DVD you made, or if you didn't make one click the link below and scroll down to the sound section. You can download a fresh copy from there.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Wireless internet not working


My name is ArmyMason, might I suggest that you do a system restore to take your computer back to a date the computer was working correctly. Click on start, all programs, Accessories, system tools and click on System Restore. Tell it to restore and choose a date on the calendar. If this doesn't resolve the issue run Anti virus to see if your computer is infected. If this doesnt help please consider using our Premium service.
