Hav you checked all audioo controls? In windows, just asking, some people dont even try this. If so, take some earphones, plug into the front and back connections ( if applicable), while some some music file is playing.

Let me know if you get anything from one or the other, or not at all.

Also, do you have a sepearte AUDIO CARD installed or just the onboard?

Also, how did the issue come about? Suddenly without warning or while you where messing around with controls.

I have no sound. No system sounds, no CD sounds, nothing. I had to do a system restore, since then I have had no sound. Please help

Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

When you made that system restore, you took your system back to when it did not have some drivers in them.

To solve this problem simply re-install drivers using the drivers CD. You can either choose to install all drivers or just the audio drivers.

if you do not have this CD go to the emachine website and look for the drivers there. Download and install it and and whalla! you will be up and running again.

Please rate my solutions to you. thank you.

What specific error message? While on the web site did you use the auto-detect feature? Realize that if the sound driver, possibly AC97, is downloaded separately that reinstalling the original chipset drivers may be necessary. I will help if you need further assistance. Steve Medley

Install disk says 83% and three minutes be that for hours need a solution

Sounds like installation froze up on you. Reboot the system using key combination Control Alt Delete. You may have to do this twice to reboot the system. Installation should begin again. If not you will have to begin installation from beginning and try again.

-Maybe one of the cause that you can't install the sound driver is because there is a sound driver currently installed on the system that is corrupted .
-Try to uninstall first under device manager and reboot system then reinstall the sound driver.
-After this steps you still can't install the driver, check if the current sound driver that you are trying to install is compatible driver for your system.
-Check manufacturer website for system specification.
