Remove the first sound device, then restart your computer, to see if vista will see that item. you may need fresh vista drivers for this to work..

I have reinstall the windows xp prof to my hp laptop. wen i play music no sounds. wat should i do?


The reason you dont have any sound is that the sound card on your Laptop needs a driver to work normally again, There is usually a website where you can download the drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop for example : dell, compaq.. just reply with the model of your computer and i can help you find the necessary drivers for the sound.
Cheers !!!

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..

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support 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

click on the lower box to display the volume icon in the taskbar..

Note:
this is only applicable if there's a sound card present or the sound card device driver is installed in your system.

If this post does not help please include the Gateway model of your pc... it is much easier to look for a driver if you can provide me with the model...

hope this post can solve your problem... :)
