This machine arrived not working at all. Soon discovered the hard disk was faulty. Bought and installed new 80gb, re-loaded Windows Xp. Run some checks and it was when I was restarting that I relised there was no sound. No sound from speakers or headphones.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have no manual for it so I was wondering if anyone knows if the sound is onboard, I dare say it is. In sound control panels it does state there is no device!!
Thanks in advance.
If you used restore disks from the manufacture it would include things like drivers. However if you used an off the shelf xp disk it wouldn't and you would have to find drivers from Microsoft or the manufacture. It sounds like you are missing the drivers, but to double check do this: right click on my computer select properties click the hardware tab and then the button at the top device manager. If you see some yellow exclamation marks or some red 'x's you are missing the drivers. And if control panel says there is no device your missing the drivers. It seems as though LG doesn't offer any support for this model on their site so you need the drivers from another source try a Google search or go to a web site called driveragent.com they have tons of drivers but it does cost money to get them from there.
I have the same problem i just formated my friends computer and i fall down in a little trouble with drivers, i found this web site after checking the internet but the drivers won't work with this LG i don't know why maybe there's a problem with the system or something like that im really stuck here anyway the's the link i hope at least he works for you http://www.notebook-driver.com/fr/lg/lg-notebook-ls40ls50-driver/

This model Sony came installed with a 80Gb hard disk and a 40 Gb Do a clean Windows install on this old hard drive - Boot up with the Windows installation CD install Windows on the hard drive Delete the existing Windows partition Create a new partition Format the new partition (full format not Quick format) Continue installing Windows.
boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer
go into bios and conferm settings
first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions
you will need to slip stream the sata motherboard drivers ( from the motherboard manufacturers website ) into the operating system disc and to do this you can use nlite
If the install cannot detect the hard disk then the hard disk is faulty and needs replacing or the disk controller is faulty.
You can check if the hard disk is faulty by :-
Go into the BIOS and check if there a hard disk diagnostic.
If not then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of the drive then it is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the laptop.
To setup XP.
You insert the Windows CD and boot up the laptop with the CD.
You have done this correctly to get the hard disk error message.
check your hard disk cable first and replace it.if this isn' stopin your problem then make a new bios flash. may be ypur bios is reporting your hdd wrong so make a new one. if even after this you can not stoping your problem bay another mb.
Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS. Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk. If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk. You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.
If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.
Dear, It is coming soon as a bootable format. then you can install just SP3, no need of SP3 for that.
you can down load SP3 from Microsoft web site free and just run it over SP2.
Hope, it will help you.
Because you have a dual boot system, you have two 'C' drives, which in fact is a good idea if you get a system failure on the drive you are using, you can select the other and still view any files on the other drive through my computer.
f using XP, right click my computer, then properties, then click advanced tab, then startup and recovery listing click settings, at the top system startup, select the default operating system, then click EDIT button, then delete the value that points to the other hard drive more than likely listed as disc1, disk 0 will be the one you have connected as master boot hard drive
