We had a power outage this a.m. while I was on PC and it shut off and restarted by itself. It did not do a "Scan Disk" as my W98Se did when this happened so I ran Scan Disk and restarted PC. There wasn't any sound. I checked Sounds, & Audio in the Control Panel and everything is greyed out and says "No Audio Device". I believe it is AC97, but it isn't listed in Device Manager. I did a system restore to yesterday and it didn't resolve the problem. I checked HP's web site for drivers and AC97, but nothing is listed. Before I call HP Support, can anyone here help me get my sound back? Sorry, but I trust you folks more than some of the techs at HP. Several bad experiences.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
