The sound drivers come with the motherboard CD.If u have formatted your pc with XP pro then make sure you also install the sound driver using the motherboard CD provided to you.Once you install them, sound drivers would be activated and an icon is seen at the right bottom of the taskbar.Hope this solved your problem.Please do rate if the problem is solved.

Hello sir, i am facing a problem regarding sound in my compaq presario v3700 laptop(running under windows xp service pack 2).. when i install sound driver, sound does not come? what shud i do?? should i...


Hi.

Yes you should install the chipset driver first. It is always the first one to install on a freshly installed Windows.

I don't know if it is where you got your drivers but compaq.com will provide everything you need by choosing your laptop model in the support page.

Hope this helps!

How to i instal sound drive for my pc?


Hello

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.

THANK YOU

SOUNDDEVICENOTFOUND


Hello

Check to see if the sound driver is still installed. Go to "Settings," "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager. Click to expand "Sound, video and game controllers." Your sound driver should be displayed. If you deleted it accidentally, it will say something like "No sound driver installed."

Check the status of your sound driver if it is still installed. Right-click on the name of your sound driver and click "Properties." It should say "The device is working properly." If it does not, or if it says it is working properly and it really does not, you will have to uninstall your existing driver and install a new one or complete a System Restore.

Complete a System Restore to restore your computer to a date before you suspect your sound driver was deleted. The best way to do this is open your general help directory (on a PC, go to your desktop and press F1) and search for "System Restore." Follow the steps when prompted and you will be shown a calendar with highlighted dates. These are dates during which a snapshot of your computer's settings was saved. Pick the date closest to the current one to ensure the least number of potentially vital files lost. If the sound still does not work, repeat the process, going back to the second closest date and continue until you have sound or you have run out of dates. If this happens, you will need to install a new sound driver.

Uninstall the existing sound driver if you still have it installed. You will be able to do this by going to "Settings," "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager." Click to expand "Sound, video and game controllers." Now right-click and select "Uninstall."

Download and install new sound driver. Choose one from the "Driver Files" website or search for one according to your operating system in a search engine. Follow the installation instructions

Can not get sound to work


Check the "Device Manager" -> Sound,video and game controllers just to see your sound device is properly installed.
To get the sound you have to install the sound drivers correctly and plug your speakers to the correct sound output. If your sound is HD, you have the install "Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio" drivers first before installing the sound drivers.

Hope it helps.

No sound , sound drivers are working


Most common reasons for this trouble are:
  • Such kind of troubles arise after some device / software is installed which tries to gain control as default sound device.
  • Also while un-installation of certain softwares, some shared files are removed. At times some important shared file can be deleted which causes troubles with working of sound drivers.
  • While installing certain games, it tries to gain control of sound or video drivers and may accidentally harm these driver softwares.
Lets see the ways to fix such troubles

Step1 : First of all check what is your default audio device setting. For this, open Control Panel > Sounds and audio devices, open Audio tab as shown in picture below.
774a71c.jpg
See that the Device selected is your sound-card or on-board audio device. It should not be blank or some modem device. Set the Default sound playback and sound recording device correctly from the drop down menu. If your device is not there in this list see the step 2.

Step2: If the step 1 is not successful, it means that your sound device driver software has become either corrupt or has been accidentally un-installed. In such case, install the sound driver from the sound-card/mother-board driver CD. You can also download the latest driver if you don’t have the driver CD. After you install the driver, restart your computer, and then check the settings as in step 1 again
