Sound has Stopped working!

by ourselfish / December 10, 2007 8:26 AM PST

I have a Compaq Presario sr1536nx amd3200 512mb 160gb on board sound and video. One day my sound stopped working, perhaps after I downloaded a windows patch, ie or other. I've found the correct sound driver AC97 reinstalled it and the sound has not returned to working order, my speakers work fine, I get static when i unplug and plug them in.Is there any way to fix this problem with out formating the hard drive? I'm running windows xp home

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?
