My sound isn't working on my dinosaur compaq presario. It has a built in ESS SOLO-1 PCI AudioDriver. I went to ESS's website and tried to download the driver but they dont have anything for the SOLO. I'm trying to contact Compaq (HP) also. Someone told me to hit delete at the startup, well when my computer starts up it goes straight to the windows loading blue, cloud screen. I hit the delete button and all it did was really quickly show me what kind of sound card i had before it loaded windows. It was kind of odd seeing as though that's some of the info i needed. Anyway, I want to make sure the sound is turned on. I've been trying everything but to no avail. Thanks.
