Right click "my computer" and select "properties" then click on "Hardware", Inside the hardware, select "Device Manager"
Inside the Device Manager, see whether there is a yellow Question mark before the start of any name, If there it will be the driver which either not there or not updated. Right click that driver and the first option will be update Driver. Select it and it will ask you to update automatically, select it and it will search on the internet for the best available driver for your hardware. If there was more yellow Question marks with the items in the Device MAnager, then repeat the same process with all. If ther was no Yellow Question mark, then select "Sound,video and game controllers" and select for the option of sound it in and right click it, and select uninstall driver. Once uninstalled then Inside the control panel, select add new hardware. and follow the steps which come in your way.

Hello

OK, it is most probably because you don't have the sound driver installed. If you supply me with the detail on your motherboard, i will gladly give you a link where you will be able to download the needed drive.

Kind regards

Unfortunately you forgot to install your sound card along with the new software. you need to find the software for it or download it from the internet after you find out what kind of sound card you have

Switched a vista hd to a xp hd and windows will not open


You can't do that, it just won't work. A hard drive with XP installed on it will be unrecognizable to a PC with vista already installed on it. You can either backup your XP drive by putting it into a compatible XP computer. Or you can buy on of these, which are handy. This let's you get the data to your new PC thru a USB connection.

My logitech quickcam 9.0.2 Will not downlood on vista computer help please


Sounds like a driver problem. Have you switched from an XP computer to a Vista computer? If so, you must go out to the Logitech web site and hit Support, then Downloads, put your QuickCam model it and select the driver for Vista. Install the driver by double-clicking on it after the download.

Hope this helps.

I have a newer computer with Windows Vista and the software won't download to my computer to upload pics. Please help. I have a Fujifilm DX-10


Try going to their website for a driver update. I know that my old Sony camcorder won't work under vista, have to use the old computer with xp. You might have to find an xp model to work with.
Maybe if you took out the chip and put it into the computer it would download the photos, never tried it but it could work.
Hope it helped a bit.

I dont like Vista so my GEEK nephew took off Vista and put XP on my Pavilion Notebook....not a good idea..Now I find I should have made recovery discs and I did not. Can Vista be downloaded or do I need...


Shea,

If you want Vista the only way you can "Download" it legally is to buy it from Microsoft direct. and download it through their download center.

But if your computer came with windows Vista on it you should be able to get the restore disc from your manufacturer for SIGNIFICANTLY less. Usually just the cost of the disc and shipping.

If you don't like Vista, why do you want to put it back on? Is Win XP causing problems?
If so if you describe them and give up what Model pavillion you have we might be able to solve those for you instead.

Hope this helps you

Need XP audio drivers for dell inspiron 1525


Hi trinadhmusun,

Click here to go to the Dell website to download your driver:

Dell Inspiron 1525

Make sure the operating system is correct (I have it set to Windows Vista 32bit as default, which your unit should be) and download the only driver for audio located on that list. It says it is a STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio, which you'll know if that is correct once you download and attempt to install it.

If you have problems installing the driver itself, let us know. Hope that helps!

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,

-Cameron
