My laptop sounds has gone


Try
1. Remove the audio driver and reinstall it. (My Computer right-click > Properties > Device Manager > Audio Devices > Reinstall Drivers)
2. Check if some other software which you are using is controlling the audio driver. (Restart in Safe mode and see if the sound is working)
3. Take expert help from a technician..You sound card might have stopped working.

I downgraded to windows XP 2002, now I can,t use


Hello there!

That could be only problem with your sound device drivers. Do your speakers work?
If they arent also working then I'm probably right, try and reinstall your sound drivers on your new machine again, if thats not working, try to download them from internet, and you should have your problem fixed.

And one more thing, if we are thinking about the same microphone (the one integrated to your laptop computer) then you should be fixing your problem with steps i told you. Good luck!

I just downloaded the audio and video drivers but the volume level is too low. the os is a windows xp and the laptop is a sager D270s.


You can double check if the audio driver is already properly installed or not, Open Device manager and look for the audio device there you should see something like Realtek or any High def audio device there if its not listed there it only means one thing that the audio driver is not yet installed properly. so you need to reinstall the driver, but if its there right click the audio device and select uninstall and once its gone restart the computer to reinstall it back and check if the sound is already working fine....

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns


Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.

Hello,

Please reboot your system then press F8 to start with a safe mode. Then uninstall the driver that causes the problem then try to check if that driver is supported with your Operating system.

Cannot make a full connection to yahoo messanger it shuts down.


Hi,

First please uninstall the yahoo and install the latest version of yahoo messenger from net. Next please follow the step by step troubleshooting if you are still facing the issue:

Instructions Step 1:Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
Step 2:Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
Step 3:Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
Step 4:Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
Step 5:Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.
Tips & Warnings Follow your computer system's instructions for checking or modifying the server's TCP ports. Ports numbered 5050, 443 or 80 must be open for the voice features to work.
Install the audio codec software that comes with Windows. PC calls and voice chat require that the software is enabled on your computer.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Microphone does not work even though it says its working properly and driver is "installed"


You need to uninstall the driver, and then reinstall the driver.
Your driver might be corrupted and Vista does not recognize it.
