HP Laptop - lost my sound after installing updates by [email protected]
Sometimes, after installing MS updates or other apps, I lose my sound. The only way I get it back is to use System Restore to a point where the sound worked. However, then I don't have the updates or apps. This tells me that it's a software problem with Vista - not a hardware problem. Now, I am about 11 MS updates behind - and no sound. Also, the System Restore doesn't work anymore (I no...

Not detecting a HDD by VistaCompUser
Hello, I was restarting my desktop after it got stuck in a frozen screen. Upon reboot it loaded up with a blank screen.

I decided to go for a wipe of the hard drive (had a fresh backup) and re-install. Yet I have no C: listed The HDD is fine...
