Click on Start, settings, control panel, system icon, hardware tab and then click device mgr.

Do you have any yellow marks next to any of the sound devices? If so, right click on it or them and choose uninstall and say OK.

Close all windows and restart your computer

On startup, windows should find your sound device and install drivers for it. Check sound when back in windows.

Hope this works. Post back

Cant get into bios and g force g220 has disabled my sound


Maybe your Graphic Card has overridden your system default audio setting by changing your Graphic Card to the primary sound device. I recommend checking to see what device is setup as your default device. You can do this by right clicking on your sound device icon and choosing playback devices. If your sound device is missing, right click inside the box and choose show disabled devices and enable whatever device is listed as disabled. Keep in mind, you should make sure the device you want to use is setup as your primary device.

Tip

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.

My pc is ibm mt-m 82121yu.device manager show its audio driver is updated but sound it doesnot sound


See your sound settings in control panel, make sure that a little speaker icon is not grey, or choose sound device from list (activated one - possibly you are still using sound from motherboard, and must swith to your sound card).

Also make sure that your device has no exclamation signs in device manager, which would mean a bad or invalid driver, go to device manager and update the driver for device if device is yellow.

0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file


Hi,
Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again.


Thanks

I need instructions on how to reinstall my sound device, I have no sound comeing out of my speaker and it is hooked up and turned on


  1. Bad software settings.
  2. Corrupt or missing sound drivers.
  3. Compatibility issues with the operating system and/or other hardware.
  4. Speaker related issues.
  5. Bad or missing sound card.
Windows XP
  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
  1. Open the Windows Device Manager
  2. Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
  3. Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
  4. Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
  5. If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
  1. Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
  2. Reboot the computer.
  3. As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer.

find out "sound, video and game controller"
now click + mark on leftside of it
it will drop down the list of available sound/ video devices
if you dont see any sound device then you have to install sound drivers
if you see any sound device but with yellow with it then its installed but not working properly
in that case also you need to install drivers once again
