My deskop is a ZT (board=MS 7267 ver 5) I have got it from a relative and at the time, it already has 2 windows xp on it (2 different language) Everything was ok until I use it to download some tunes from a russian site - the day after, my Eng windows disappear... I reinstalled a Eng copy of the Windows and download all the drivers from the manufacture site - everything work except for sound ! I reinstall the sound driver provided from the manufacture and it still tell me there is no device for sound! (I did plug in a set of speaker) I try to use the driver (realtek application from the other windows and the driver) but that didn't work. What else can I try?

If sound is from build-in audio that the bios is enabled. Next, be 100% sure you do have the right driver for your audio output. Follow up by verifying that the correct audio port(s) are used. Once all done, check(test) the audio using the s/w that maybe provided. if none, goto the audio&sound devices" check properties of the control panel for audio and try there. Also, under the audio button(check all), that proper audio device is selected for output. One of these should hit on an audio fix.

Of course, I exclude any reference to the dual OS installs, they may cause an issue. I rarely deal with multiple language based OSes as you can understand, but it shouldn't be an issue as only 1 OS will be used. BUT, they may default to similar files/folder areas. If one overwrites another that may cause a glitch.

No driver found would make the onboard audio work. Since I don't want to waste my time on this I disable the onboard sound in the BIOS and slipped in a 10 buck sound card. Done.

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?
