Sound / Restore Problems

by stewart_ew / February 24, 2004 12:55 AM PST

I have an HP6735 pc, windows ME, I have lost all sounds on the machine, can the sound card be "turned off" ??? I also can not run the system restore, it tells me it has been turned off and to go to the control panel into system and uncheck the box, which I do, the system needs to restart and the box gets checked automatically, something is doing it but I don't know where to start looking.

Thanks for the lesson on "short file" names.

The article [ Q261680] discusses this type error and describes the behavior to occur because there is not enough free space. In WinME, System Restore requires a minimum of 200 MB of free space after setup is complete to be enabled automatically. During setup, no warning message is displayed that tells you that there is not enough free disk space for System Restore to be enabled automatically. However, if you do not have the "September 8, 2001", it could be a contributing factor however.
