You should be able to download a driver for free.  Go to the website for the manufacturer of your audio device.

I recently had my pc reformated and now I don't have any sound on it, When I go into control panel and click on Sound it is all greyed out.


Ok most liklely that when the operating system was reinstalled a sound driver for the on board sound card was not installed. Go to your control panel and check for yellow "?" most likely will find one next to sound device.
If so you......
1.) find out whos sound chip you have
2.) google search "your sound chip number" windows "your version of operating software"
3.) download then select reinstall driver from the yellow "?"
4.) reboot ...... should work.....:-)

No sound at all


1) Go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Audio tab 2) Check what's under "Sound playback: Default device" and "Sound recording: Default device". It these fields are grey and non-clickable, then most probably the audio card driver is missing or less probably the audio card itself is broken. 3A) If you have an original CD of your computer, motherboard, or audio card, insert the CD and install the driver from it. 3B) Or alternatively insert the CD and go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware > Device Manager, find any unidentified device in the list, or expand the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch, identify the Audio card > Right click > Update driver... > Install the software automatically > Next 3C) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers. P.S. These steps mentioned above are for Windows XP, but will be quite similar on other Windows versions, too.
If you tell me your laptop's model name, I could find its website where you can download audio drivers. For example if you have HP laptop, go to www.hp.com and enter your laptop's model number and look for driver downloads offered.

No sound or voice from the pc?


Have you installed the audio driver? If you have installed an audio driver, it most likely an incorrect one. To check if you have installed a correct audio driver. Go to the Control Panel - click on Sounds and Audio Devices - click on the Sounds tab - click on any of the Program events and click the play button. If you hear a sound from the speakers the audio driver is correctly installed. Also connect a headphone to the laptop and repeat this test.
If you don't hear any sounds and the play button is greyed out, it means the correct version of the audio driver wasn't installed.
You can check if this is true - go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager and look for any devices that have a yellow ? against the device. This indicates a device driver is required to make this device work.
You need to download the correct device driver for your model laptop, and it must be a XP or Vista version that matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop.
