I did not think about trying to go back to XP pro.. My daughter can't afford 7 yet, so I will try that!
I'm with you I hate Vista, I never had anything but problems before I got 7!!!
Thanks, 2 heads are better than 1!!!

I just never have problem with XP sound or 7, i never used Vista because i saw what peoples talking about that 'OS' on internet, it's just too much buggy.

Try to reinstall Windows Vista and check Sound again, it might helps. If problem still appearing, just choose new OS.

Sorry I haven't brought you up to date this week yet. I tried to replace Vista OS with XP pro and got a stop error (I didn't write it down) also a message to check BIOS version.
So I reinstalled the Vista OS in order for the computer to reboot correctly, still no sound and the CD/DVD coming in and out of being recognized . I will try XP pro again to see what happens and write the stop error down.

Would it be a possibility to create another partition to try and see if the sound works on Xp that way??
This is beginning to be a pain!!! Let me think

Oh my god, too many errors Goofy Maybe you really have to update your BIOS, is that some really old computer or what ?

Naa, let's not try dual OS, have to many errors for now. Pain, yeah.. Try to catch up that message XP gives you, maybe it's related to some of hardware components.

The computer is only 4 years old (HP DV6500 series laptop).... Just crapping out I guess.
It should have let me downgrade to Xp pro but would not, It did not even get to installing anything before the stop error and check BIOS message. When I reinstalled Vista OS According to updates the BIOS was up to date (for Vista).
Thanks Nazzgull!!

Want to bring you up to date.
I went ahead and installed Vista SP 2 and so far the CD/DVD is being recognized. The sound still does not work, but the SoundBlaster X-FI pro installed and she has sound with earphones. I haven't figured out if it is set up that way or if I can get it to use the laptops speakers. She may have to use external Speakers, but it is working for now!! Hooray!

I will let you know If I am able to set it up to use the internal speakers.
Thanks for all your help
