Question about HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop

3 Answers

Audio Problems I had to completely reinstall my os and now I have no sound. My sound driver calls for the realtek ac97 audio driver. I have downloaded multiple drivers that are suppose to work but I get the same message when it is installed. After restart it say invalid date as to the driver that just was installed. This has happened to every driver I have downloaded. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Maybe a silly question, but is your time and date correct on your computer?

Dear loandtee,
u said u reinstalledyour os. but u din't tell wat's your os.
If it is xp then you have to instal audio driver of that particular motherboard.
If it is vista then no need of audio driver.
U also din't specify your motherboard make and also chipset.
For example i'm havin asus motherboard for intel945gc chipset.
So i can only tel general suggestion
If u have motherboard cd then no problem. it wil have appropriate audio driver.
If you have to download from net then u should find those two details.

AC97 AUDIO DRIVER


i dont have any sound on my computer

Somehow lost my sound card driver


The super-cheapie models use Realtek AC97 2-channel drivers, while the multi channels use Realtex HD drivers. You can go direct to Realtek's website (google "realtek drivers" and go to their website.

Control Panel / System / hit the "hardware" tab, device manager, scroll down to "sound video and game controllers" hit the plus sign to the left, and your audio devices should be listed. The one with the yellow sign of doom is the problem device, and the name of the device is the one you want from Realtek.

Rather than let Windows search for it, I'd rather take it from Realtek, and run the install. Afterwards, burn it to a CD for use when you upgrade, or reinstall your OS.

That will happen sooner or later, so best be prepared.

No audio on pc problem


Check the Sound and Audio settings to make sure that the proper output device has been selected. Go to your Control Panel then Sound and Audio Devices, then the Audio tab. In that tab make sure that Default Sound Playback is set your sound card.

REALTEK REMOVED MY WINDOWS SOUNDS!!


Solution:

best sol: go to start button ----->click RUN----->Type devmgmt.msc in Text Box -----> 

              Device Manager windows appears , click on Sound, video and game controllers(+), 
              if you see "Realtek AC97 drivers"(if they are visible...) then we can make sure that sound                     drivers are loaded in ur system, otherwise you have load it again.....


                                                          or

i) my best advice would be, dont mess up with installing, reinstalling, uninstalling sound drivers rather try   to format or reload your OS again(Windows XP) and then install drivers.

ii)  try to check volume on your speakers, volume in windows or system , volume in media players sometimes they may set to mute of no volume.......

iii) try to check all sound physcial connection that run from your computer to speakers, including power connections, cable connection ....or just remove and replace them(reseating...)

iv) try connecting a headset to your sound port, sometimes your subwoofers or speakers may fail.....



Thanking You
