  1. I just had to restall windows XP home addition on my Presario 6265AA, My sound vanished. I read some of the past posts that involved the sound card and drivers and yada yada. But everything I have tried has failed miserabley. I even got so fed up I actually open my computer to see if the sound card was still there. It is but not doing anything.

    Does anyone know the Exact Driver name for the Sound Drivers for the 6265AA?? I cannot live without my sound

    Thanks

    If you reinstalled you would first need the chipset drivers added from here;

    Then Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

    Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop. Click on file, preferences, report and uncheck the 'include debug information in the report' box. People rarely want to see that stuff.

    Click on the + sign beside 'Computer', then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY Top of the screen and click on 'report'.

    Note: the 'Very Top' isn't one line down, it means what it says.

    Cursor over 'quick report-summary' and then click on 'plain text' and then click on 'save to file' and change the 'save in' folder to 'Desktop' and then click 'Save'.

    Clear all your open windows and on the Desktop click on that 'report.txt' icon - this will open it in a text editor (probably Notepad) and then copy and paste it to here.
