Hello.

I recently reinstalled my Windows XP OS. The computer now starts up fine, but some things are missing (ex. I have no sound)

When I try to use the "Application and Driver Recovery DVD", following the steps on this site, nothing happens. I insert the DVD, go to Start --> Run and type in "D:\SWSetup\AppInstl\Setup.exe" as the site instructs, and nothing happens.

My computer is a Compaq Presario V2000 CTO Notebook PC.

Thank you.

Why not just go to Explorer view...look at the DVD contents...and click on applicable setup.exe file?

Copy all the files from DVD to hard drive, try it from there.

Your optical drive may not be working properly.

Still nothing.

I guess I should mention that an hour glass appears by the mouse for a second, but this was happening before.

Am in agreement with Louis.

Even though your optical drive apparently functioned fine for the fresh install it does seem to be showing signs of failing.

I am able to load some songs that I saved off a a CD onto my computer, if that tells means that its still working...

Although, I guess I can't tell if the songs work since I don't have any sound....but Itunes is able to read them and get album artwork and stuff.

The music is on a CD?

Are the drivers on a DVD or CD?

Oh, the driver recovery is a DVD and the music is on a CD.

Also, earlier I was able to use the Driver Recovery DVD to get my wireless network to work.

All I really need out of this DVD are the graphics and audio drivers...but when I try to download them from the HP site, they get errors.

An error when you download them or an error when you try to install them?

What is the error?
