Hi Maungmaungti,

Thanks for your posting in FIXYA.

It may be some Hardware conflicts arises due to Web Cam.

Please unplug Cam from PC and reboot it.

Also check your Device Manager and use the Mobo CD from installing Sound Driver.

When I try to start my web cam I keep getting this message about web cam driver did not work restart camera or computer. I have restart my computer too many time and still does not work.


It sounds like you need to update your driver for the web cam.
Step 1: Go to device manager
Step2: Find the web cam in the device list
Step3: Open Properties
Step4: Have the device manager search for driver.

Other option:
with the web cam unplugged from computer, in device manager uninstall the web cam, restart computer, then plug web cam into computer and let OS find and install drivers.

Hi,I'm having a very big problem.In the Sound and Audio Device it is said that there's No audio Device !.Even though days before, i was having sound.In the Audio tab,in the MIDI music playback there's...


Ok, if you have the audio driver installer with you then it's fine, otherwise download it from your PC manufacturer's site for your model no. Run the installer, it will extract some files in C drive in a folder. now open device manager, right click on audio controller and select update option, then select install manually and "i will choose driver". In the next dialogue, click 'browse' and point it to the folder where driver has extracted files, inside the folder somewhere there will be a .inf file, select that and click OK.
If you are still having difficulty, then post here your model no., audio device etc. in detail, then i can guide you better.

No audio ouput device installed


First we have to determine whether or not you have the required drivers installed in order for the operating system to communicate with your sound playback device. Following is the keyin sequence for Windows XP - The key-ins will differ somewhat for other Windows operating systems:
Click on START
Right Click on MY COMPUTER
Tnen click on PROPERTIES followed by HARDWARE and then DEVICE MANAGER.
Double click on SOUND, VIDEO and GAME CONTROLLERS
Your sound playback device (such as Avance AC 97 Audio) should be listed. And there should NOT be a yellow exclamation mark in the left margin (If there is, this is an indication that the device is not working properly - see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
If a playback dvice is NOT listed se CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
Double click on your sound playback device.
In the device status box you should see the statement "This device is working properly"
If you get any other messages indicating that drivers are required or need to be updated, see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
If everything look OK, click on the "X" in the upper right corner to close device manager.
If everything was OK in device manager we will now see if the operating systen is sending sound to your playback device.
Click on START
Click on CONTROL PANEL
Select the Classic View (If not already displayed)
Click on SOUNDS AND AUDIO DEVICES
Double Click on AUDIO DEVICES
Click on the AUDIO tab.
In the Sound Playback dialog box your sound device (something like "AC 97 Audio") should be listed. If it is not, click on the pull-down menu and select it if you can..
If it is NOT listed, see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
If it is listed, perform the following tests:
Click on the SOUNDS tab
Set the Sound Scheme to WINDOWS DEFAULT
Click on APPLY and OK
In the Program Events dialog box, click on any event that has a speaker Icon to the left of it
Underneath the Program Events dialog box you will see a small box with a triangle inside
If the triangle is black that means that the operating system has recognized your sound playback device (sound card).
Click on the triangle.
You should hear the sound through your speakers (the triangle will change to a rectangle while the sound is playing)
After the sound plays the black triangle will re-appear.
If the triangle is black and changes to a rectangle when you click on it and you DO NOT hear sound through your speakers either your speakers are plugged into the wrong jack or you have a problem with your speakers. Test or replace the speakers.
If the triange is gray that means that the operating system does not recognize your sound playback device (sound card). See CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.

CORRECTIVE ACTIONS
If the playback device is built into the motherboard, the device may not be enabled in the BIOS. Check your BIOS settings. If your sound device is disabled, enable it and repeat this procedure.
If you do not have built-in sound on your motherboard you will need a sound card installed in an expansion slot on the motherboard. This card may not be present. If there is no sound card, install one and then repeat this procedure.
If you do have a playback device installed and enabled and either you have an error indication, drivers are not installed, or device manager reccommends a driver update, you will have to download drivers from either the motherboard or sound card manufacturer's web site. Also, if the drivers are installed and you no have no error messages, but you do not hear sound when you click the black triangle, you may have a hardware problem on your motherboard or sound card.. At this point, you may want to get some help from a qualified PC technician.

No dound and no soung driver found


The first issue is that you do not know what drivers to install. For this, you will have to identify the devices that are installed in your computer. To do this, follow the following steps:

  1. Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
  2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
  3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
  4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
  5. You should see a code similar to this
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
  6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:
    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC
  7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, go to www.pcidatabase.com. There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.
Once you know which device is installed in your computer. You can search for the driver and download & install the same.

Sound device


Go to your device manager list, right-click my computer icon on the desktop then go to properties. Go to hardware tab, click device manager, go and click "sound and video controllers" to see if anything is with a yellow question mark, if there is you need to uninstall the one with the question mark, if not close that window and proceed to right-clicking the volume or speaker icon on your tray (near the system clock on the task bar), right-click and select "adjust audio properties", go to audio tab and select the right audio device from the list you can also see there other playback properties you can try and troubleshoot from there...
