Run the installation again and see what it is called. Then go into control panel and remove that program, then the drivers will be removed

    I have already done that but cannot see the drivers there...I thought that maybe they would not show until I rebooted my pc.
    Maybe I am wrong and just cannot see them..
    Thanks anyways.

    click start > then press the right mouse button on computer or my computer then click manage. In the computer management window that opens click on device manager in the top left , if you can see a device in the top right window that has a yellow exsclamation mark on then press the right mouse button on it and click on uninstall. Make sure you tick the box in the pop up window that has do you want to delete the drivers for this device. That will remove the drivers you installed

    Done that and there are no yellow exclamation marks.

    if there are no yellow exclamation marks then you have not installed the incorrect drivers

Try to reboot you computer and after that reboot try to reinstall the software.

Lenovo 3000 J205-968654u I have lost the sound. I try to download the driver, but it tells me no audio device in control panel-sounds. I hve the microsoft UAA bus driver for high def audio. I have heard...


Control Panel - Device Manager - SOUNDS - look for HD Audio - Mine says RealTek High Definition Audio
(that is an example and yours may have an entirely different name/maker).

Write down description make and model - double click on it - drivers tab - write down version. Now
Click UPdate Drivers which may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers. Then RIGHT
CLICK on it and UNINSTALL - REBOOT - this will rebuild the driver stack.

1st go to system maker's site and look for latest driver Download - SAVE - go to right click on and RUN AS ADMIN
(This is your fallback.) REBOOT after each driver installation.

NOTE : Sound drivers often rollback so check the version after installation and the reboot to see if the
version you installed is there, if not repeat the install - reboot until it is. It can take several tries depending
on how many rollbacks it does.

Then do same for Device Maker's site.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Cant activate windows xp home edition


Try and see what the BSOD says , when it suddenly reboots. Press F8 until it gives you a menu , go to advanced options or something similar highlight don't reboot or restart automatically.

Can you start your PC in safe mode. Try a crack although I wouldn't recommend it.

Prior to re-installing your OS, backup all your documents..
Insert your recovery disk cd on the cd rom drive and reboot your pc.

As it reboots press any key to continue so it will boot from cd and delete the partition, create a partition and active it.

Then install the OS which goes to C:\ drive. After the installation is complete install all the drivers and the applications. You can go to the manufacturer's website and download others drivers as needed.

Activate Windows then go to Microsoft Update

Wrong battery detected. may need to download the system drivers, usually for bios or other utility programs. the compatibility issue with batteries, is based on the make/model being loaded into the listings from the sysadmin for your operating system.
