hello

i recently had to do a fresh install of windows along with a reformat of course.

(probably not important but the cause of the reformat was due to a restart loop that could not be stopped through safe mode or anything else. Possibly hardware related)

i have windows xp and a dell dimension 2400

i use the dell resources CD and under audio drivers is:

"analog devices ADI 198x integrated audio rev: AO8-00"

so i extract the files, then install. Only to be stopped by an error message saying "driver not found. Please reboot and try again"

under device manager i have yellow ? next to "multimedia audio controller" and "PCI SImple communications controller"

anyone know where i can get an updated version?
thanks
makihara

oh my other small problem. My keyboard has an @ sign and a " sign. THe only problem is they are in reversal from what i punch in on the keyboard and what appears i.e. i press quotation marks but i get @ sign on the screen.

Hi

The reason for the keyboard problem is usually because XP has been configured to use the wrong input language (English [UK] rather than English [USA] or vice versa, for example).

If you open control panel & double click the Regional & Language Options icon, you should be able to change the default keyboard layout to the one you require.
