Question about PC Desktops
Did the sound used to work? Did you recently format the hard drive? any idea when the problem started?
there are many things that can go wrong but in the end this particular problem always is about the computer detecting the hardware (the sound card) and the installing of the drivers once the sound card is detected. You can find out a little bit of information by going to:
start menu>control panel>system(if you cant see "system" switch to classic view on the left)>hardware>device manager
I know its a lot of menus but once your there the device manager will tell everything about the innards of your pc. It will also tell you (with a big yellow question mark) what items its having a problem with.
Please go there and see if there is a question mark next to anything so we can get your sound working.
