Do you already check with device manager? if you dont know where to open device manager.
click here

If you are using original license operating system(window xp, window 7)
try this link

if not...using pirate, dont use FIX wizard that..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My alternative...
when you have check device manager, you will see software or driver for each hardware.
-there are many factor that derive from that sound problem.
1st. Driver is out of date.. try update software..
- find you sound adapter in device manager,right click and chose properties.
-in driver tab, chose update.

2nd. Driver have been deleted or damaged because of virus.
-you can try update.
- but it need more time
-if you using pci sound card, find your model name .using google.
-if you dont use pci sound card, then find name and model for your motherboard.
google the driver . sometime you can find more driver, make sure you download sound driver only . but if you want backup driver, donwload all the driver.

after downloading finish, install and restart..

It is working ?
rate me..

How to Reload Sound Drivers


Instructional steps
  1. 1 Download the installation package for your sound driver from your sound card's manufacturer to a location on your hard drive, such as your desktop. Locate the installation package on your hard drive if you already have the file on your computer.
  2. Open the Windows "Start" menu and click "Run" to open the Run dialog. In Windows Vista and 7, locate the "Run" option by selecting "All Programs" in the "Start" menu and opening the "Accessories" folder.
  3. Type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotations) into the Run dialog. Press "Enter" or click "OK" to open the Device Manager. Click "View" and select "Devices by Type" to arrange the installed devices by their type. Double-click "Sound, Video and Game Controllers." Locate the name of your sound card from the list of installed sound devices and double-click it to open the properties dialog for the device.
  4. Click the "Driver" tab in the properties pane to view the device's driver options. Click "Uninstall" to remove the current driver installation. This step prevents possible conflicts when you reload sound drivers on your computer.
  5. Close the Device Manager after the process of uninstalling the sound driver is complete. Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you saved or stored the installation package for your sound card. Double-click the installation file. The installation package will automatically install the driver again. After the installation process, restart your computer if directed to do so.

No audio


heare is full solution of sound and sound card....
First, test your speakers by connecting them to another sound device like CD/DVD player or a similar device. If you can hear sounds from the speakers, they are fine. Next, connect the speakers back to the computer. Make sure that you plug them into the right colored jack at the back. The speaker pin should be plugged into the green jack at the back of the computer.

Now, if you can't see the speaker icon in the system tray, you may need to enable it from the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, double-click "Sound and Audio Devices" and check the box that says "Place volume icon in the taskbar.
Next, run the following command from the Start -> Run box and then press Enter: dxdiag
Click on the Sound tab and you can see the details of your sound card. You can also test your sound card from this tab. Note the name of the sound card driver, on paper. If you can't even see the sound driver name, the driver is not installed or not installed properly.
The easiest thing that you can do now is to do a system restore, using the System Restore utility.

Here's a link about how to use the system restore utility on Windows XP:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using...

Here's a link about how to use system restore from Windows Vista:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-v...

If System Restore didn't make the sound work, do the following:

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) In Device Manager, Click the + sign next to "Sound, video and game controllers". See that the sound driver that you noted above, is listed.

Now, double click the item in that list that has the same name as you saw in dxdiag's sound tab. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the computer manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:
You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here: http://xpdrivers.com/index.cfm
or directly from this link: http://xpdrivers.com/download/download.c...

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

It's also possible that the drivers are there but the sound card was displaced a bit from it's slot (in case you have a separate sound card on your motherboard, and not a built-in one).

If you suspect this, you should open up the computer and pull out the card. Then, re-insert it firmly into the slot or try another slot if you have another one free. Make sure to tighten the screw to fix the card to the case, and put one there, if it's missing.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.OR at last go to near computer shop.
Hope that helps,
Regards,
Pankaj

Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...


Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:
IDT HIGH DEFINISION AUDIO

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:

LEGACY SOUND DEVICE

Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)

I cant here any audio sound on my computer


There are a few simple things to check first:
• Make sure your computer has a sound card.
You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.‌ getopencontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.
NoteIf you think you have a sound card installed but you don’t see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed there. 3. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
4. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
