Could you please specify some things like how big is your hdd & how much memory do you have. These 2 things are very important when installing a new operating system like xp & up.
Sounds like you may need another one of the sound drivers. Do you have the Realtek97 Audio driver?
And is your standby option greyed out when you click start & turn off computer? This will be a video driver issue I'm pretty sure. When you drag a window quickly across the screen do you see it like streaks or what exactly do you mean by "slow screen"?

    Your welcome Stelleke. Have you tried "sound & audio device properties"? In case:

    start/control panel/sound,speach & audio properties/sound & audio devices. You will be in sound properties. Click on "AUDIO" tab on top. You'll see "sound playback" default device. Click on the arrow on first drop down box and select your default playback (system or your sound card). Select yours. MIDI- M.S. GS Wavetable SW Synth is usually ok unless you've added devices.

    If you go back to "sound playback"/Advanced, drop down "Speaker setup' & choose yours.

    Of coarse make sure all volume settings are correct.

    It matters if your using the system sound device or you have added your own sound card & speakers. And your video???

    Good Luck, gotta have sounds.

Emachines T3116 with no audio


It is entirely possible that the onboard audio died on the mainboard. They fail quite often. However, in order to use an aftermarket card in place of the onboard audio, you will need to go into the CMOS setup and disable the onboard audio to allow the SoundBlaster audio to do its thing.

Reinstallment of drivers after fresh system installation of XP


Hello,

You can get the drivers in the website of your computer's manufacturer. After installing the drivers, you can keep them updated to make sure that you won't get any driver issues in the future. You can use RadarSync to keep them updated without you doing anything in your end.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

Computer says Audio drivers not installed- when i purchased the computer audio and video were working


though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..
assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..n directx installed..
check if Audio device is enabled in bios..

howevr, download microsoft kb888111 update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine like google..
download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz in .exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a .inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack....

if not fixed try using a standby pci snd card (in such case it'll b a confirmed case of ur system board is likely to b defective)..
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor....

My color monitor (hp pavilion mx70) is having graphics problems


Need to download correct graphics drivers and then you will be able to change the options. If you already have up to date drivers then you need to Right Click on desktop and select properties and then click on the Settings Tab and change it from 16 color to Highest (32 bit). Oh, go to manufacturers web site to download drivers.

Input signal out of range


Did you mean "out of range". Try reloading video drivers. If that doesn't work, perhaps screen cannot use that resolution.

Microphone does not seem to be working


The microphone connector is on the rear of the monitor, and you need to connect it to your computer's microphone input jack. The cable is the same kind you would use to connect the audio output jack to the input on a set of computer speakers. Once the microphone is plugged in it works just like any standard microphone. No special drivers are needed for the monitor, but you do need to be sure that the proper drivers for your computer's sound devices have been installed.

If this solution has been what you needed, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

Unable to install my monitor;no sound, grainy graphics...


You need to install drivers for all your hardware (video card, sound card, modem, etc..) Drivers are a piece of software that tells the computer how to use hardware components, they contain all the instructions a computer needs to turn on and use the components. Do you have a driver disc that came with these parts or the computer itself? If not the only thing I can tell you is find out the make and model of the hardware components, then visit the manufactures web sites for the drivers. Without drivers you computer dosn't know how to operate hardware properbly or at all. It needs them.
