Install it with the help of mainboard cd that came alongwith your computer. You just place cd in your dvd/cd drive and it will autosetup. All the best.

Asus EEE netbook freezes while watching video or gaming. It freezes for about 2 minutes then recovers. Suggestions?

Netbooks have very slow processors and graphics cards compared to their laptop and desktop counterparts. You could try and see if their is an update for the video drivers but you might just be screwed. I had an acer netbook and it sometimes had problem with full screen video, it would glitch well watching it.

Hi! Mi laptop was working perfect, and suddenly the audio icon has an X on it and says NO AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE IS INSTALLED How can I recover it? Thanks

Did you download or install anything that might tamper around with the audio. If you did then uninstall it and reinstall it, that might help. Alright if that doesn't help then go into Control Panel and click on the Icon that says "Sounds and audio devices." Or something similar.

Play around with the settings and see if your situation improves.You may have to go into the "Audio tab" and set the Sound Playback and default device to what ever your sound card name is. If you dont know what your sound card name is then just play with those settings. Another thing that you could use is system restore.

System restore is in (Start, All programs,Accessories,System tools,System Restore). Restore it to the date that your audio was working fine. System restore wont delete your files or anything.

I have windows xp so things might be different on your computer.

Please rate me a thumbs up if I helped.

Computer crashed and recovered but no sound after

Computers have a mind of their own at times. Here's what happened to me a few years back: I had the same kind of problem and finally figured out that windows automatically configured my system differently because there was a problem. The way I solved it was to put the sound card into a different slot and reboot. That may or may not help you further, but to know that your PC probably automatically changed its configuration might help you to solve it.

Door glass EXPLODED -- by itself while micro NOT BEING USED since a.m.

This has happened a few times before.

I would bet it's due to too tight a fit or shirnkage on the plastic frame around the glass.

Here's a VERY interesting link to a TV news site with full video:
