Hi,

You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your computer. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with the motherboard of the computer.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

I need instructions on how to reinstall my sound device, I have no sound comeing out of my speaker and it is hooked up and turned on


  1. Bad software settings.
  2. Corrupt or missing sound drivers.
  3. Compatibility issues with the operating system and/or other hardware.
  4. Speaker related issues.
  5. Bad or missing sound card.
Windows XP
  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
  1. Open the Windows Device Manager
  2. Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
  3. Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
  4. Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
  5. If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
  1. Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
  2. Reboot the computer.
  3. As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer.

No sound


Try the device manager in windows to see if there are any devices that are missing drivers or are having problems (or even disabled). To get to the device manager in Windows XP, right click on the My Computer icon and choose properties on the pop-up menu.

Click on the hardware tab and click on Device Manager button. Look for any yellow exclamation points or red x's on any of the devices. Also look for unknown devices.

If there are any of the above, correct these first. If not, look for the entry for sound, video and game controllers. Click on the "+" to expand the folder. If you have the drivers for the sound device you have installed, then you can try removing each of the devices under the sound, video and game controllers section. Reboot the machine and reinstall the drivers for your hardware when the "found new hardware wizard" starts.

Pc working good, but no sound


If you're using Windows, go to device manager [right-click My Computer, click Manage, and click Device manager in the Computer Management Console Window], next access your Sound device and make sure it does not have any yellow exclamation [conflicting drivers] or question [missing drivers] marks. If it doesnt and you still dont have sound, you'll need to download and install audio codecs from your Computer, or sound device manufacturers website...good luck

Re-install window xp on laptop and the sound device is missing


You'll need to install the driver for that particular sound device - Windows doesn't have drivers for every single piece of hardware ever made. (You can probably download it from the site of the sound device manufacturer, or the site of the computer manufacturer.)

Sound


Did you have sound before?
If yes then follow this for xp:
Start/control panel/Sounds, Speech, & Audio Devices/Sound & Audio Devices. Is page greyed out? If yes then most likely its your sound card or on board sound, or your missing drivers.
If not greyed out go to "Sounds" tab, click on any "Program events" sound under Windows then click little black arrow next to browse on bottom right . Sound? If the arrow is greyed out then its the same; audio hardware device or audio driver.
If there is still no sound click on "Hardware" tab and first Sound,video and game controller then "properties". This will tell you under "Device status" if this device is working properly. Do this for each Sound, video ect.... selection in the list. I have found there are usually 6 listings. If not then you are most likely missing a sound driver.
