Multimedia audio drivers


There is NO several drivers to try, Bakari

There are ONLY two.........

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=3143

The bottom two drivers;
Sigmatel - 5.10.5082.0
And,
Conexant - 6.14.10.575

They are both for WinXP, and are both for either a 32-bit version, or 64-bit version.

XPx86XPx64

XPx86 means it's for an XP 32-bit version
XPx64 means it's for an XP 64-bit version.

The DIFFERENCE here, is whether the Audio chipset is made by Sigmatel, or Conexant.

How to know? Go to Device Manager, and look........

Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab. Left-click on Device Manager.

Click on the + next to - Sounds, video and game controllers
In the fly-out side menu; do you see Conexant, or Sigmatel?

Using Sigmatel as an example;

Third audio driver file down......Sigmatel - 5.10.5082.0
Click on the blue -> Audio to the Left.
(Or click on the Download arrow all the way to the right)

A small window will come up -
Opening Audio_Sigmatel_5.10.5082.0_XPx86XPx64_A.zip

Make SURE there is a GREEN dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; left-click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on OK.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download ALL the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
Another small window will come up.
Go to the far Left side, click on - Extract all files.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

(DO NOT change anything! Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen; and restart your computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

The taskbar is on the bottom of the desktop screen. The Time is in it, for one. So is the Volume icon. It is a Speaker symbol.

If you do not have the Volume icon in your taskbar;

Click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices.
On the next window click on - Sounds and Audio Devices.

In the Sounds, and Audio Devices Properties window, go to the middle, and to the subheading - Device volume

Click in the empty square to the left of -
Place volume icon in the taskbar
(Puts a green checkmark in the box)

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Then go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Volume controls other than icons


Download AND install the audio driver. Choose what Windows operating system you are using, first.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Audio chipset.
The operating system wasn't stated.

(Be sure to restart your computer after INSTALLING audio driver)

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/inspiron-2200

Using Windows XP for an example;

Scroll down a little, click on the blue Down Arrow to the left of -
Audio (1)

Click on - Download File - to the right.

Single-file download has a Green checkmark in it's small circle.
IF not; click in the small empty circle, to the left of -
Single-file download.

Then click on Continue in the blue oval 'button'.

A small window will come up -
Opening R99254.EXE
Click on Save File.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on it.

(If a Microsoft 'squawk box' comes up, ignore it. Click on OK.
Second one? Click on Run)

At the bottom of the 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.

IF, this doesn't cure the problem, suggest your audio chipset is bad, on motherboard.
Since it is a laptop, NO; there is no replacing a sound card.

Scroll down to the bottom - Wireless LAN

When Windows has fully loaded again, you should get a pop-up out if the system tray, "Found new hardware device"

Plus perhaps another one, "Found Atheros wireless device".
(Or to that effect)

Missing audio device


Run4bear,

I need the Operating System version you are using.

Windows what, and is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?

Going with product problem heading -
Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002 as the product, and using Windows 7, 32-bit as an example,

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1363705&rpn=PLUA0U&modelFilter=U205-S5002&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

(Downloads / Support Bulletins / Detailed Specs / etc )

To the right of the bold black subheading -> Refine Search By:

Now click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of - All Categories
Choose - Sound

There are two files listed;
A) Sound Application
B) Driver Sound

You want the sound driver. (Driver Sound)
Click on the blue title name -

Windoze lost the driver to your audio chipset.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

deathschythe.png
Fig. 1. Windows VISTA Start Menu. To put Windows VISTA to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the Lock icon then click Sleep or Hibernate.

deathschythe_1.jpg
Fig. 2. Windows 7 Start Menu.
To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.
