I have the hobby of producing music with the computr so I just did a new partition on my HD just for music programs as the one I daily use it's full of rubbish and a bit slow to run those kind of softwares.
Unfortunately I did something wrong while I was setting windows XP to be a good "music work station" and now it doesn't recognize my soundcard (integrated). as u can guess, sounds are quite important to produce music .
as nothing is yet installed there unless windows, I was thinking to reinstalll the OS and that's all.
I think you have understood I'm not that good with computers, so I'm asking if it is possible to erase everything just on that partition (formatting is the word?) in order to install windows once again. if it is, tell me how please !
otherwise, if you know how can I make m computer recognize the soundcard that would be really easier and quicker.. I looked for the driver's cd, but I don't have one. I think all the drivers are in the windows installation disk I got with the laptop (I remember that when I first bought the laptop I just needed to install windows byits cd and everything was working)
so, how to "format" only that partition?
or how to make the computer recognize my soundcard?
thanks to everyone for your patience and your time. I'm sorry if there are some mistakes.
PS: I'm using wondows Xp service pack2 and my laptop it's an HP pavillion dv5008 ea. if this can help..
