How to i instal sound drive for my pc?


1. Power on your computer. Ensure that there is a sound device installed on your computer. You can locate your sound device by right clicking on "My Computer." Click "Properties." Select "Device Manager." Click on "Sound." Your sound device should be listed. If there is no sound device listed, you will have to purchase and install a sound device before proceeding.

2. Insert the CD or floppy disk that contains the drivers for your sound device into your computer's CD-ROM or floppy disk drive. If you do not have the CD or floppy disk that contains the sound device drivers, there are websites such as Driver Guide and NoDevice that will allow you to download the drivers online for free.

3. Click on "Install Drivers." The sound device drivers will then be installed onto your computer. It may be necessary to restart your computer once the installation is complete.

4. Open your media player and play an audio file to ensure that your sound device drivers were installed successfully.

No sound available

You should first check if sound has been disabled, and if not, whether a sound card has been installed. On your taskbar, ---the horizontal strip conraining the start menu---,which is usually at the bottom of your screen---on the right hsand side--open thr volume control to check if it has been muted. If not go to DEVICE MANAGER on control panel to see if a sound card is among the devices installed on your computer. In Vista device manager is in Control Panel>Administrative tools>Computer Management>Device Manager. Use Help on your start menu to locate device manager. You should heard sound if sound is not muted and a working sound card is fitted

If it has built in sound you would see the familiar RCA jacks in the back of the PC, if not that NO sound - but almost all MOBO have integrated sound these days.

Next question do you have speakers (external or internal ) hooked up properly?

Likely to be a driver issue - or the sound card is faulty
