Right click on the MY Computer listing on the start column. Now click on properties, then click on the hardware tab. Now click on the Device Manager button. In this list under Sound there my be a yellow sign w an exclamation point in it. click on this sign and read to see if the device is working. If not, then try to reinstall the driver as the message says. Reboot the machine. if the problem goes away so be it. If not, then the problem is more serious and will probably tech work. Check back with the Tech and see if all he did was reinstall the driver. If yes, then it seems that a recent program installed or something else has messed with or is still messing with the driver or it's the wrong driver period. Also the sound card section of the MB could be defective. If all else fails, all I can recommend is you try to reinstall windows or have the tech fix it again and get a serious answer to what the problem was and how he fixed it. He should have told you in the first place.

My computer have no sound


Check the volume control of your pc if the volume was set to mute. Click start, all programs, accessories,entertainment and click volume control. Check the pc speaker and master volume it must not be muted. If it muted un-check it. If its not muted then your problem is the audio driver. You have to reinstall the audio driver of *********** board. Send me the model of laptop so I could send you the appropriate sound driver. Just send it by posting fallow up comment for this problem. Thank you.

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?


My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.

My computer is an Acer 5536 and I have two problems. The first one is with my sound. It has an x on the volume icon, but when I click to change it, it says sound devince not installed. I went to the device...


you got it over night huh? i have a few solutions for you: 1. sound-try to reinstall your sound card using its driver disc. 2. other problems that you have are very seriously if you got them just like that but try this to get rid of them- use system restore and restore your computer to earliet date that you have offered. this might help you but it cause reinstalling the programs and updates that you have installed on computer since that choosen date. if that won't work i HIGLY recomend you to reinstall your windows!

Volume stuck on mute


I don't think you're stuck on mute I think you're having problems with your sound card. Go to device manager; if there is a yellow or red sign on sound then right click and try reinstall driver. Let me know if you have any questions. Pls rate this solution.
