Hello, I bought my computer approximately may 2007 and since downgrading from Windows Vista to windows XP I have no sound or any sound drivers. I looked up my computer on the U.S. website and they didn't even list my computer. I also looked on the U.K. version of the site where it did actually list my computer. I have downloaded the sound driver that it has told me to download but still no sound.
My computer is an E-machines E4216. The original operating system was Windows Vista Home Basic but it is now Windows XP I think it is Home Pack 2 although I am not 100% sure.
Please help it is driving me crazy not having any sound!

Interesting. You did install the driver after downloading didn't you? Because if not, you need to. On my computer (is at least 5 years old) it does not have sound after being on for too long. A simple reboot fixes that for me. Also, check your speakers. Test them with something else, like an MP3 player, or some other computer to ensure they're working.

Re: no sound on my computer.
The drivers are not available XP on the net, you could contact emachine live chat during the day or submit to them a request for it. Another option is to purchase a 20$ sound card and use that. That is what I would do. Good luck, Lee

you cannot downgrade operating system. thats the number 1 rule. what you can do there is try to perform a clean install of windows XP if you still want to use windows XP. Boot the computer from CDROM. by pressing F12 key from the time you power on the computer. setback is, everything you installed in vista will be erased.
do not downgrade, if you don't have WIndows XP software.
you can not dowgrade Vista to Windows XP.
copy all the data from your computer and store it on a DVD or CD.
inssert the WIndows XP, reformat and install, (just following the instruction on screen).
you can upgrade from WIndows XP to Vista, not the other way around.
Are you downgrading from 64bit Vista to 32bit Vista?
If so you will need to purchase the complete installation for 32bit Vista. You insert the disc into the computer, when it asks "press any key to boot CD" press any key, it will start the windows installation. Just continue through with everything. Be warned that this WILL erase all data off of the computer.
If you are trying to downgrade from Vista to XP you will need to find out if the manufacturer ever released drivers for XP for that model of computer. Most newer machines are not XP compatible anymore.
If you have all the Windows XP drivers for your PC, then it is not a problem to downgrade to Vista, although i will not advise downgrading, as Microsoft mentioned that they are only going to release the last Service Pack for XP, then there will be no more Service Packs for XP, and only Support for Vista.
Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.
the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).
When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
