    I STILL need to know OS and audio Programs...

  • Michael Borelli Jul 28, 2008

    Operating system and what software takes care of all your sounds? Win XP, Mac, Vista, 2000, Linux, etc? Win audio, Legacy, Audigy, Turtle Beach Audio, ETC?

  • Michael Borelli Jul 29, 2008

    I tunes is not your audio driver. From Start,Go to , right click , select , select , and from the drop-down menu, look and see what audio driver it tells us you have...accordianman

  • Michael Borelli Jul 30, 2008

    That's what I needed, thank you. Go back into that menu and uninstall the drivers for the Legacy audio. Then, reinstall the drivers and see if that does it. Are you running Anti virus of some sort and what is it if any? You may have a bug floating around in there somewhere, and need to run spyware eradication, then virus removal tool, just to make sure there's no other problem...accordianman

  • Michael Borelli Jul 31, 2008

    Okay, when you uninstall drivers, it is not necessary to have a CD to reload those drivers. Just follow the directions and click on what you need. DANGER! Do not uninstall the actual device, just the drivers for now. Uninstalling the device(s) will require file(s) on your hard drive to be reloaded, and, barring a good source, will require the respective CD....accordianman

  • Michael Borelli Aug 01, 2008

    DO NOT uninstall the device-ONLY the drivers! Then reboot and re-install those drivers and see what we have...accordianman

Can I change or upgrade the Video Card on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E?

No Bull, no internal upgrading.

One may be led to think so, due to computer manufacturers just abusing the heck out of their 'Advertising license'.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965,

Integrated graphics, not a replaceable, therefore upgradable; graphics card.

Something that may interest you though,

My laptop wont charge i think it has a broken internal power supply

Bad cord/charger, bad battery? What give you the idea that " i think it has a broken internal power supply" Your saying your laptop will not charge the battery? Does the laptop work? If so the power supply is OK.

My Toshiba p105 s6004 has a damaged sound control switch, so I have no sound. I think I need to replace the sound card. Who sells these?

you can get a small external sound controller that plugs into a USB port .. these are usually better than what comes with the laptop ... a lot of internal sound cards use only monoral inputs .. i guess thats ok for a mike but really bad if ;you want to record an old record, tape or FM station .. the external sound cards have sterio in and out and many other features ... also some have multichannel (mixer) capabilitys .. they usually have lower noise and better sound quality ... really good ones can be expensive but i got a low cost one locally that works great ..its very small but a big improvment over what my dell had internally in my laptop ..

the sound control switch and the "sound card" are likely seperate ... so replacing the card may not fix the problem if the control is bad .. in fact several spec sheets show the sound card as "integrated" on your machine .. that probably means its built on the motherboard .. not a plugin replacable part.. ouch

here are some external sound cards to get you started .. just search for USB sound controllers on google .. there are many

really small one
