Motherboard supporting software--sound


I am a user of ZAI computer. I had to format the compuer due to technical reasons.
Now the windows media player is not working .The media player gives the following message-

"a sound device may not be installed or may be used by another programme or not functioning properly"

I tried the following method to update,
"control panal--add hadware wizard--search-----------inernet----"

But the response was this-

"cannot install this harddware.
The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software."

please give me necessary advice to solve the problem. I would like to have the software that supports the software of my computer .

These are the informations I found on the motherbord.

NO: 7G4043 02531 (the number found on the sticker)

CE D33006
REV:3.9 PCB made in China "
There are three types of GA-945GZM-S2 motherboard (rev-2.1, rev-6.6, rev-3.x). How do I know mine.I also would like to know about the socket number.

Thank you

Audio Breaks

Hello vatsala,

Try downloading and installing the latest sound drive available for your motherboard. Here is the link.

If that doesn’t work, try using another set of speakers to make sure it’s not your speakers that are bad and if that doesn't work, you may have a bad sound card and will need to put in new sound card.
