have you got a motherboard driver disk that came with the machine?

If not, post the make and model of the laptop.

All the drivers for your notebook are here. click here

Download them to a folder on your desktop and then install them.

Good luck.

The Sound drivers may be on another partition.

Where it says Sound then description, put your mouse below and it changes to a finger click on it

Hope you are well.

I had a Fujitsu - semiens amilo 3300+ laptop brought over today. It would not boot. they had tried for around three weeks to re-install windows ( oem disk ). The laptop kept stopping the installation or the screen going blank.

I took the hard drive out ran a few diagnostics on it. fdisked it and partitioned it. "C" had quite a few bad sectors, so put the installation on "D". Used "C" just for paging file after windows marked the error blocks.

Lappy up and running fine now :-)

Any luck with the drivers leeknight67
