Thanks for that info, have you any idea's where i can pick one up and average price?
Looking around on the net it seem's other people have had this problem but ive still found no answer.
This laptop had xp home on it originaly but the guy i brought it from said it's been like this from new, dont know why he did'nt take it back!
ive now put xp pro on but still can install the driver from HP's site.
Do you know if this model has a sound card or onboard and is there a way of accessing more of the bios settings as i cant enable/disable sound.
