I am just getting back into computing. I once built a S-100 machine with CP/M in the early '80's. Now I trying to upgrade a HP-d330 desktop and get back into computing as cheaply as I can. I have two questions:
I've installed a router and networked two Windows 7 machines, but I took some bad advice and downloaded a Vista sound driver in hopes of upgrading the sound, but instead I lost it all together. Is there some way to recover the sound. I cannot find a sound driver for Windows 7, and the Device Manager doesn't even show a sound device. Is there a way, short of re-installing the O/S to recover the sound?
Will the original disc controller on a HP d330 be compatible with a Blu-Ray/HD DVD Disc Drive? If not, what kind of controller can I install?
