Hello,

I have a Compaq Evo N600c, i have just upgraded to Vists (from XP Pro).

1. Vista can't detect any modem on-board (there is one, it worked fine on XP)

2. No sound drivers installed, downloaded driver sp35682.exe and installed, before finalised it comes up with error: driver installation failed: could not find the media device for this driver !!

Please help, as this computer worked fine before upgrading to Vista....

Thanks.

Go to add remove programmes, remove windows media 11 which will start a roll back to windows media 10. your sound should be back when you play Windows Media.

dude if ur machine is hunging that mean u update ur machine....
I fixed my audio problem by going into the control panel. I changed it to the classic display and then selected "Sound". After opening sound, I selected the SB Live speaker option and made it my default. Then I clicked on "properties and selected the "Levels" tab. This is where you can adjust your sound levels.
If you have updated drivers and are still runnning into trouble, go into the control panel and open sound (I use the classic arrangement). You'll see the various sound devices listed. If you're hooked up to a receiver, two aspects may be related. First, see which device is listed as default. If it's not whatever, output you're using then that could be your problem. Go to the Default button to make it one of your defaults (in mine I could have more than one, so I have the TV and Spdif as defaults).

The other issue may be the formats, so go to the format tab and see that WMA is checked in the decoding section (if your receiver handles it that is--which is another problem of course).

That's what worked for me anyway.
