YOU DO know XP is dead right, no MS support now
and that the MS plug and play servers are shutting down now .
(I have inside info on that) that means what, this moment forward
devices you add or install fresh XP things will FAIL. !!!
what is XP, ? the Operating system by Microsoft?
XP is a problem but can run, off internet safely.
no PC stated at all ,just a monitor
if the sound is bad, I can see what you have there,at all
the speaker in the monitor only need the small cable to do that
a 3.5mm phone mini connectors is it.
plugged in to your ustated PC , jack marked speakes
next YOUR XP OS must have the correct sound card (chip)
driver loaded or sound will be dead, in all cases.
why not tell pc name and model first then say sounds deAD.
then show the device manager page, on sound.
XP key strokes are convoluted here.
click start, then control panel.
click device manger, (wthew) pant pant... xp sux
lucky you I have and old XP laptop (relic) that works like new.
but the c-media sound chip fails. (only eMachines his it)
when I fresh load XP this chip fails (and others)
that is the no and future of XP,
what we so is hand load it from the makers support
site, but you never once told what PC you have. why?
i can teach you how easy.
on mine i down load the intel sound chip driver
or go to emachine side do same
or if HP machine (is it) we get it from there if pc is under 10 years old. if not oops. we must go to intel.
or what your MFG codes and DEV codes is , ask me.
i can decode them all. ask
this is my xp failing on sound
the XP cant even tell it is sound just other devices,
and is in yellow, Red or unknown words
all mean the driver is missing
mine below is intel sound.
mfg 8086 = intel
dev 24d5 is intel's sound chip...
so there are 2 ways to fix a fail like below.
tell me what PC you have maker and model number full
or tell me your codes below. and ill get you your driver.
