No sound coming on my laptop VGN-CR220E


Please first check whether the Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 is installed in the Computer and what is the version of the BIOS installed in the Computer.

To check the information about the Service Pack installed:

Click on Start, type WINVER in the Search area and then press the Enter key.

Or

Please goto Start Menu, select 'All programs', select 'Accessories' to access 'Run' option and enter 'WINVER' and check whether Windows Vista SP1 or 2 is installed in the Computer.


To check the version of the BIOS installed in the Computer:

Click on Start, type MSINFO32 in the Search area and then press the Enter key.

In the System Information window check the BIOS version.

If the installed BIOS version is not R1121Q0 or higher then install the BIOS update in the Computer from this Link.

This is a known issue with a VGN-CR series Computer when Audio may not work properly after installing Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Installing the BIOS update should resolve the issue.

If the issue still persists after installing the BIOS update then you may try installing the Audio Driver from this Link.

NOTE: Please first go for the BIOS update as it is a well known issue with a VGN-CR series Computers.




Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cant install windows xp on my presario CQ40-313TU, what should i do?


If the laptop has a Vista sticker on its base, then the BIOS is programmed to accept Vista and only Vista. The only way to install XP on that machine is if HP has a BIOS update for that model in their support files. If they do, download the BIOS file and install it. Reboot and if the machine boots up and stabilizes, shut down, insert the XP installation key and reboot.

Windows Vista


hi there
There is 2 ways to do this, firstly you can create a floppy disk with the updated bios flash file on ( not recommended to a novice ) or reinstall XP and updated the bios by downloading it from the manufacturers website and installing it that way. After that you can install Vista.

good luck

I have bought a new pc this one and has vista


the reason is the bios, when these pc's are built they are built to run Vista and the bios version is refering to vista and not XP, you will need to download and install an earlier version if this is possible, install XP then instal vista on a seperate partition if you require it.
