Question about E-Machines etower 500ix PC Desktop

1 Answer

Realtek 97ac My speaker will not play sound no more. It says that I don't have my sound device. This is the message... Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly. When I check the devices, only one of them (multimedia audio controller) says it's not working properly. It says the manufacturer is unknown, location PCI bus 0, device 31, function 5, and date unknown. When I try to reinstall driver, it says insert a disc, (I don't have the disc). I don't know what realtek is, can you help me?

Cannot get sound on any outlet port


Download and install Media Player Classic and use it.Are you using onboard audio or an add-on card? Make sure that the BIOS is set for one or the other (in other words, the internal audio disabled when using an add-on card), and installing the latest drivers for all.

I wish, I can know the operating system installed on your computer and the exact error message that you are seeing on the screen. Anyway, try this.. first download and install this.. (Microsoft uaa bus on high definition audio driver). Open the link and click "Download" button and save it. After it's installed, download anyone of these..(select your Operating System):

I can't hear any sound from my speaker. Aside from that, in my player(Windows Media Player), there's a message saying that I don't have a sound device. Please help me..thanks


It seems that your sound card driver is not installed and furthermore does your pc has inbuilt speakers or not. At the rear of the cpu you should connect your speakers green wire inside cpu's green socket. For the sake of driver you can install it from the link provided below and install it on your pc. Just click the link provided below and then click on Download link1 Happy listening.
