How to setup your Sound.

Install the drivers for the sound device. If the sound hardware came with an installation disc, insert the CD into the drive and follow the prompts. If the sound device does not have a disc, contact the manufacturer or download the drivers from the manufacturer's website. To check the system for sound devices, go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "Sound and Audio Devices." The primary sound device will be shown in the top of this window. Step 2 Check the "Audio Devices" properties window for muted volume or the volume bar set to minimum. Either of these will cause the sound to not work. Step 3 Check "Device Manager" for improper settings or problems with the device. Go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "System," then select the "Hardware" tab, then press the "Device Manager" button. A list of hardware will be displayed. Audio devices are under "Sound Video and Game Controllers." The device will be titled the same as it appeared in the "Sound and Audio Devices" window in the "Control Panel." By double clicking on the device, it will display the properties. There is a selection at the bottom of the first tab that will display whether the device is "Enabled" or "Disabled." Any conflicts will also be given in the form of small exclamation marks. Step 4 Check the volume knob on the physical speakers.

pci device drivers are not installed on my system i dnt know how to install. due to this my audio device is not working


Installing Sound/Audio Cards and Drivers Sound or audio cards, whether it is a stand-alone device inserted into an expansion slot or embedded sound controllers in the motherboard, require specific device drivers in order to function and produce sound. This low-level program is responsible for processing the data between the sound card hardware and the operating system.
Most sound cards are bundled with the appropriate installation CD when purchased. This disc contains a database of the manufacturer’s available sound device drivers at the time of purchase and includes the specific driver intended for the card purchased. Most discs have an autorun installation program that prompts users to start installation. Some only provide a database of drivers and let the Device Manager or Add Hardware applications in the operation system perform the task of installation.

If you dont know the type of driver that you have, please check the following link to help you:

i just install a quad core processor, and the sound card doesn't make nay sound


Is it just a replacement of a defective one? If it is, then, you still have the same operating system in it. Put your PC on, and left click, Setting, Control Panel, Systems, Hardware, and finally the Device Manager. You will now see the installed devices/hardware in
your PC. Right click over the sound, audio devices,
and view the status and property of this item. You
will be prompted on what to do next. If you don't get
results, your option is to reinstall the software driver.
If you have the CD for sound/audio software driver,
insert the disc and install the driver. If this is not
available, you can connect to the internet Just type at the search engine blank (Free download for sound/audio software driver) and click over it. Then, follow the instruction for you to get the free download.
the sound/audio software driver download
