Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

My system doesn't detect the PNY Geforce 9400 GT (512MB) display adapter that I installed, although it is currently running the monitor. It is a PCI-E device. It doesn't show up in Hardware Manager. Also, my onboard sound is not working. I need resolution of these two hardware issues.


Answers :

I'll start with the Sound Issue, make sure the resources your sound device is using arent conflicting with any other hardware or application the system, if they are, you'll be able to see a yellow exclamation mark next to the icon. If there isnt any sign ntu still the device is not working, uninstall the devices drivers and download and install updated versions of you audio codecs.\015\012
\015\012As for your display, if you had an old one and you simply unplugged it and placed your new one in the same slot, that could be causing the detection issue, computers really arent that smart. so you'll have to make sure any previous versions of display drivers that could be preventing the new adapter to be seen must be carefully removed.
