I am having difficulty obtaining drivers O 3000 N100 OS XP Base System Device PCI bus 5, device 6, function 2 Base System Device PCI bus 5, device 6, function 3 Base System Device...


Base System Device drivers are usually installed by what the manufacturer calls "Chipset" drivers. If you are running Windows XP, there is an Intel Chipset driver available at the Lenovo Support Page for your model. If you are running an Operating System other than Windows XP, I would go to the above page and compare the drivers listed there with what you are seeing in Device Manager. Install the ones that are missing. Hope this helps!

I need sound on my computer how do i install mixer devices


1. You will need to get to the "device manager" if this is Windows XP
if you have Windows 7 you will need to go to the "control panel and click "Hardware / sound the
then go to Manage Audio device" from here you should be able to see if the drivers are
there and the device is working properly.
a. the Windows help can guide you but here is the Microsoft site that has the video to
go through the steps.

*
For Windows 7 instruction
Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager.? Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Here is the Microsoft site instructions:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly

Sound problems can be caused by cables that aren't connected properly, corrupt drivers, incompatible drivers, sound settings, missing updates, and problems with your sound card.

Open the Control panel
Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Verify the installed driver settings
Open the Windows Device Manager
Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
Reboot the computer.
As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer
If you are missing the "Sound, video and game controllers" category in Device Manager, it is likely that the sound card drivers are not installed properly, sound card has been disabled, sound card is bad, or no sound card is available in the computer. First, verify no conflicts or other devices are present in the Device Manager; if these are present it is likely they are the sound card and/or devices causing the sound card not to be detected. Second, verify that the computer has a sound card and/or that the sound card is enabled on the computer.

You should first check device manager for any issues with Network drivers.

Start--> Run --> devmgmt.msc

This command will launch "Device manager" window.

If you see a Yellow exclamation mark in device manager for NIC, follow the following steps to identify the card that is installed on your computer.

  1. Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
  2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
  3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
  4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
  5. You should see a code similar to this
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
  6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:
    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC
  7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to www.pcidatabase.com . There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.
After you find out the information about the device and the manufacturer of the device, you can visit the manufacturer’s website and download the corresponding device drivers.

I had formated my e1501 lap and i installed the drivers found in dell site every thing is working fine but audio drivers dosen't function i had tried many driver found in web  nothing is correct so plz...


Hi dart_kasinat, From time to time windows needs a more direct method when installing sound device software, this sounds like one of those times.
You mentioned you installed the drivers found at Dell. Click on this Dell link & confirm this is the site you were at; http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_1501&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
(Sigmatel-driver)?
Try this. I need you to open windows device manager. Open windows control panel. Than open the System icon. In the System properties window click the hardware tab & than click the device manager button. Device manager will open. Scroll down to, Sound, video and game controller. (This may already be opened).
Look for a yellow upside-down pair shape with an explanation mark in it. Or you may find "Unknown PCI device".
Leave everything you have opened & go to your desktop. Create a folder there. To create a folder on your desktop right click once within a clear spot on the desktop. A pop-up window will open. Left click New & slide to & left click Folder. You now have a folder on your desktop. Right click once on the folder & slide to & left click Rename. Type the name "sound driver". Open the link above from dell & download the Sigmatel-driver, file name (R171789.exe) into your sound folder.
(This is the correct driver for your Dell E1501 notebook).
Open the sound driver folder. Double left click the file, R171789.exe Pay close attention to where it will want to uncompress its self. (It will create a new folder with all the needed files for your sound). Most likely it will create a folder named, (R171789). Now things get a little tricky.
Go back to the still opened device manager. Find the upside-down yellow pair with the ! point in it or the Unknown PCI device. Right click on it once. A pop-up window will open.
Left click once on “update driver”. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Left click on the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the R171789 folder in your system. Most likely it will be at, C:\ R171789. Do not open it, just high-light it by left clicking on it once. Than click OK.
Windows will search within the folder & install the correct driver software. If by some chance windows does not, repeat the above & open the R171789 folder. Find the “setup.exe” & click on it once. Than click, OK. Windows should install the driver. Close all opened windows & restart your system. Test you audio by running “Sigmatel icon within control panel”.

Good luck Sudhan!
Still have no sound? Just let me know here.

Sound problem


Hi thr,
If u r runnin Windows XP, Go to control panel. click on system->hardware->Device Manager n check to see if the sound drivers r installed properly. If the lists shows a yellow exclamation mark on PCI DEVICE, It means u need to install microsoft universal audio articeture drivers first. u can search for it on yahoo or any other searchengine to get the link. download and install microsoft uaa drivers, Uninstall the PCI device from device manager and re-install the audio drivers. I hope it works this way. Thank u

No sound in aspire 5315


- I guess you downgraded your system to windows xp, If that the case you have to check if the system has an internal modem .If so, please download the driver for that PCI modem.

- I have already checked the modem that was already install on your system(V.92 56Kbps* data/fax modem,)
- You have to download the windows xp driver for this modem. or download chipset driver for windows xp
