My computer is driving me nuts! Please help!
The last time I brought it home from the shop it had a new screen card. Fine. The screen wasn’t working. Now its working. But then I found that I wasn’t able to install the modem, even though I had the installation disc from the internet company. I was on the phone with tech support for over an hour in and out of control panel.
When I got off the phone I decided to just junk everything (sofware wise) and start from scratch figuring this might help solve the problem with the modem. I reformatted the drive with the windows 2000 professional disc and reinstalled windows.
I got the windows up and running, except there’s no sound.
So I start poking around in control panel and inside the physical compter to see what I might have to install to get the sound to work and this is what I found
[li]control panel / sounds and multimedia properties / sound playback / prefered device / no playback devices[/li][li]control panel / computer management/ components/multimedia/sound devises/ no sound devices. [/li][li]Label on audio port: (embossed) foxconn[/li][li]add - remove hardware wizzard / troubleshoot device/[/li]searching for plug and lay hardware to install / multimedia audio controller - the drivers forthis device are not installed (code 8)
[li]I asked windows to search every cd I ever got that looked like it had audio device drivers and it found nothing it could use.[/li][li]No, there was no disc that came with the computer containing sound device drivers.[/li][/ul]
So I basically have no idea what driver I need to install. When I go look for a driver, don’t I need to know the specifications of the hardware? How do I find out?
What do I do next?
Thanks in advance for all your help SD’ers!
