Hi, i have tried without success to install a new sound card. Now my sony cdrw will not work. In hardware there's a little yellow circle with a black exclamation mark in it, and hardware wizard says the driver may be missing. I have no internet connection on this computer so how can I get a new driver into it? Thanks.
More detail on the computer and operating system would be of use. THe CD driver -' Oak Technology' is useually built in to the O/S there days, but also exists in a Win 98 boot disk for example. Failing that establish the make model of drive in question and get onto a PC with Web connection [ The one you sent this in for example] and down load driver and put onto a floppy . Then transfer to the machine in question. More over you could also try the install new hardware and select 'From list'- you may find it there.
Thanks everybody, took the cdrw apart and its now working again. It appears to be the new s/card thats messing things up. Soon as i put it in, the system goes haywire. Its a genius sound maker value 5;1 from ccl. Im running xp by the way.
Sorry, and i've been left with an error in bios. If i go into power/power up control/wake on usb for str state, item specific help is saying (in red) enter to select whether or not to wake up from suspend to ram or power up from soft off by usb device. Any ideas?
