Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have no sound and a split drive

\015 THis is my problem I have no sound. I have a new computer there is a sound card installed. the drive is split one side is english xp the other is Japanese xp. the English side tells me that my sound device is set as the default. The Japanese side tells me that there is no sound device and the option to pick the default device is unavailable. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I am sure if anyone knows how to fix the english xp if it were doing this it would be the same on Japanese.\015

Answers :

It seems to me that the driver is not installed in your Japanese XP version. You should get the model number of the sound card if possible and go to the manufacturers website. Do a search for the driver, download it, and install it. This will fix your problem. To check you can right click on my computer, click properties, click system, click device manager, and you should find a questionmark in the list. If this is found, it confirms that you need to download the driver. Good Luck!
