Unfortunately SoundMAX uses their own sound driver (as most dedicated audio codecs do), so we will need to know either the make and model of your computer (e.g. HP Pavilion dc5000 or something) or the motherboard (e.g. Asus Striker II Extreme).

I need to know how to get my audio back on the computer i disabled the sound and now its saying there is no audio drivers installed. what do i do?


I ever face same problem once.
If you have motherboard CD driver, you can re-install the sound driver from the CD.
If you don't have it, you can download and install the driver. Each motherboard series have certain sound driver, so you must download sound driver compatible with your PC. You can see the name of your sound device from Device Manager or you can search from Google.
Hope this help.

No sound device


? mark means no sound driver install or errors in Device Manager. u can check ur mother board cd room or can search ur audio driver in web or below may be ur answer


Question: Where do I locate motherboard sound drivers?
Answer: Users who have motherboards with on-board audio (often with VIA, Realtek, or C-Media chipsets) may have issues with their audio or AC'97 errors in Device Manager. Often this is caused because the operating system has been reinstalled and the motherboard chipset drivers are not installed. To resolve this issue try following the below steps.
Let Windows redetect drivers
If you have not recently reinstalled Microsoft Windows it's possible that your audio drivers are simply corrupt. Open Device Manager and remove all devices under "Sound, video and game controllers" and any "Other devices". Once removed reboot the computer and let Microsoft Windows re-detect the audio drivers.
Motherboard chipset drivers
Reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers will usually resolve this issue. If your computer came with a Motherboard CD, install the chipset drivers from the CD and the sound drivers if also available on the CD.
If you do not have a motherboard CD, obtain the motherboard chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.
Sound card drivers
If after installing the motherboard chipset drivers you continue to have issues install the sound drivers. We suggest you download the sound drivers from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer.
A listing of motherboard manufacturers and their drivers can be found on our motherboard chipset drivers page.
