My laptop wont play sound


I would recommend trying to see if these drivers will correct the issue..I can't see you having a laptop, and all of a sudden, there is no sound card installed? So, I think the drivers will solve the issue. You will need to enter serial number of laptop..click on the below link..

My laptop wont play sound


there are many reason why you are having this problem, as i can see that you have code 28


Solution : Reinstall Driver, try to find your accompanied CD that goes with your pc

This code means the device was not installed completely.

To resolve this issue, follow the recommended solution. If that does not work, try removing the device from Device Manager and using the Add New Hardware wizard to redetect it. or remove the device physically and re-install it, or else You may need to obtain updated drivers if the error still occurs.
what kind of sound card?

Audio problem


You need to install the correct driver for the sound device, because with win XP it can install a generic driver but it wont be working properly so if its a built sound on your MOBO you need to install driver for it from the MOBO setup CD.
