    I recently got rid of XP Professional and had Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600) installed by a repair guy after my system locked up. Since then I have no audio, when I go to Volume and sound options it just says "No audio device" and says everything is working properly. I know I have a card or onboard audio device as it worked perfectly before. Also nothing is missing inside the case. I do not know what is going on. Someone please help me, before I pull all my hair out.

    You got rid of XP Media Center....what did you install in it's place? And how did you install? Did you reinstall the sound card drivers?

    Sorry, I actually had xp professional. My pc had locked up, I took it to a repair guy and he installed Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600). Since he had done it for me I'm not so sure how he did it. I also do not know what the card is or what drivers I need. Not sure if it's a card or onboard, not to pc savy. However, I did open my case and found some things that might leave a clue two chips on my motherboard read - RTL8101L (GOOGLED http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=15)
    And - ATI IXP 400 (GOOGLED http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=ATI+IXP+400&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=)

    I hope that helps, again sorry. I don't know squat about computers other than how to use em

    That's strange as Media Center needs to be installed onto a media center ready computer. :confused:

    Did he give you the licensed copy of this operating system so that you could reinstall later if necessary?

    Where is your XP Pro (the better operating system) now? The install cd? Did you pay this guy to futher downgrade your computer???????? :eek:

    I was not given a copy from him, I also never got my Prof installation cd from bestbuy, the pc was their last one on display. So we weren't even aware that it was supposed to come with it. Abd sadly yes I paid him $20 to "Fix" my problems... :(

    Also when Prof locked up it was asking for an "Administrator Password". When I boot my PC I have two OS's to choose from. Media and Prof. However; when I try to boot prof my pc just keeps restarting. Dunno if that helps but who knows eh

    Sounds like he left you with a real mess. I guess $20 to break your system even further isn't that large of a loss.

    You should go to the HP website, and see if you can find drivers for your system. The XP drivers should work. I think HP has an area where it will ID your system, you may have to enter the model number or a serial number....not sure which.
