No sound, will not recognize any driver.

Deleted driver & re-booted. Device is found (SoundMAX Intergrated Digital Sound) but it doesn't run. Keep getting error code 10.

Tried a few other drivers, nothing. OS is XP SP3

    that's been done before in that very manner - nothing. Bios updated & no change, different drivers tried - nothing. Seems to me it worked fine until windows sp3 installed itself. THe driver installation always shows an error

Under hardware manager untinstall the sound device and reboot. When back into windows do not allow the Found New Hardware Wizard to run. Go to HP's Website and download the appropiate sound driver for your system.

My daughter deleated stuff off my laptop now i have no sound, what can i do


Hi Mark,

first thing I would suggest would be a sytem restore, this may sory your problem and other problems caused by the deletion of files which you may not have come across yet. Goto Programs->accesories->system tools and select system restore. Follow the prompts which appear on the screen and see if that solves your problem.

If the system restore doesn't work, then goto control panel->device manager and look for any items with a yellow triangle containing an exclamation mark, these are items which are experiencing problems. Right click on the problem hardware and select update driver software. The system will now do a search for the drivers that are required. Hopefully, windows will find the drivers you require and all will be good. If windowns fails to find what is needed, then it may be necessary to go to the manufacturers website, look for any identification for the hardware in the device manager and use a search engine to look for drivers or, if your pc was purchased as a ready built machine, try the manufacturers website of the pc itself (e.g. Gateway/Dell/Emachines)

Hope that this has been of some help.

My pavilion dv7 is saying "boot device not found". It is saying there is "no hard disk". Any suggestions appreciated.


I would want you to tell me if your Laptop feels hotter than usual.

If so... this in combination with the Boot device not found message means you may have two problems.

1: The hard disc is failing

2: Your cooling fan isn't working

Either one could cause the other to fail. If the hard drive is overheating the cooling fan may not be able to keep it cool enough to function properly,


If the cooling fan isn't working properly or the cooling vents are clogged the hard drive and/or the intergrated circuitry could be overheating

If you do not sense any over heating.

You hard drive may have crashed, if you have another one you can put in the laptop to see if it is recognized.

Would help to have some sort of disc you can boot off of that would recognize a hard drive such as a Linux live CD or Hiren's boot CD or some sort of PE disc. Maybe a Windows install disc. to try and find out the cause.

Good Luck

XP laptop no longer recognizes any USB speakers, and internal speakers dont work. USB speakers do not appear in the audio controls. the only 'device' listed under Sound Playback is SoundMax Digital Audio,...


Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not.
You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem.
You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.

NEC Lavie LL550/7 Audio Driver...


The NEC LaVie series was only released in Japan. Direct driver support for this model from NEC is only in Japanese if you can read it. Your sound device for this model is 'Soundmax AD198x ac97'. You can do a search for the newest driver though, I found several links to it.

No sound/ audio


Did we try doing a system restore for the most recent available dates. Or we can a perform a last known good configuration from advanced start up menu.

Cant get any sound on my aspire5920


- Open the Control Panel
- Open Sounds and Audio Devices
- Open Hardware

Look for a device with some name and model number with 'Audio' behind it.
This will be the maker of the sound hardware.

Close the two latter functions and open System
- Open Hardware
- Open Device Manager
- Locate Sound, video and game controllers and open
- Locate the name you found previously
- Highlight and delete ( or uninstall) it

Restart your PC.

This should force Windows to recognize it again and look for and hopefully find the device drivers for it.

It is possible that as often happens, Windows just shot (corrupted) the device driver for the heck of it.

If this doesn't work, you need to run an online scan of your system or run your current AV program to see if something is tinkering with your sound facilities.
