Audio system of my laptop is not working. it shows error code 18 when i try to re - install it and shows error code 88780078 when I try to play any track


Hi

Let your computer install the best audio device and detect your sound device.

Right click to MY COMPUTER ICON, choose the Device Manager, then delete all the AUDIO DRIVERS AND DEVICES INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER, then restart your computer.

It will install and configure correctly your sound device and sound driver.

hey there.

That means your audio codec driver doesnot meet to the sound driver.

Your installed audio driver is not the right version of ur sound card.

You need to download correct driver by downloading it through internet
