It's a piece of circuitry that processes sound, can be a plug in board or built into mother board, go to device manager (start-settings-control panel-system-hardware-device manager) and look down the list for sound device if there is any yellow icons there's some thing wrong.probably needs drivers

I recently formatted my hard disk and installed windowsxp and the sound card doesn't work anymore, hardware multimedia audio controller has question mark. kindly assist. thanks.

No worries, this is all fixable =] First you need to identify what kind of sound card you have, if it is build into the motherboard, you need to find out what kind of motherboard you have. Once you've done this you can search for "x sound card drivers" replacing x with the sound card you have identified. There are many free websites providing drivers, but it's best to go through your computer's manufacturer. Hope this helps =] If you need help finding the drivers, let us know what your sound card is.

the drivers might have been corrupted by something or you might have got a virus run your antivrus program and test for a virus then
you might have to uninstall then reinstall either the sound drivers or the sound card make sure you have both of these devices baked up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
as for the sound
control panel sounds and audio,volume you can adjust the volume or
advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or
audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to sound,video and game cotrollers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers

Having Problems with Audigy 2 zs soundblaster. Can't get it to work right I am not getting sound from my desktop speakers. It was working fine before but I ended up having to get a whole new hard drive and...

Hi Thanks for your question.
What you need to do is (in this order)
1. Make sure it's not the speakers - try them somewhere else. 2. Open the case and check that sound card is seating in slot properly. Take it out and resit it. Maybe try different slot (you may have faulty slot on motherboard) Remember to remove any power supply to PC before doing this! 3. Go to the manufactures website and go to support section. Download latest driver and reinstall.
If all of this fail I'm afraid you need new sound card.
I hope this helps. Best of Luck

I have a Dell Dimension 4600, will a PCI Express sound card work in place of the original Sound Blaster 5.1 sound card

Well, the short answer to your question is "No, it won't work". The Dell Dimension 4600 does not have any PCI Express slots in it, therefore you can't install it, and therefore it won't work. But, if you installed a PCI sound card, it would work. The BIOS would recognize the add-on sound card, disable the onboard sound, and your sound will start going through the expansion card instead. Hope this helps.

No Sound!

I am guessing you installed the software that came with it. Check in the Device Manager and make sure that the card says working properly with no yellow exclamation marks or question marks. Check the version of driver you are running and make sure you have the latest one from the manufaturers web site.
Did you go into the sounds and audio devices in the control panel and verifiy the card is there and select the default playback devices? You may also need to open the mixer and make sure that the sound is not muted and is turned up to an audible level. As for codecs, Windows Media Player should play WAV and mp3 files without any additional codecs. You can always download codecs from Microsoft's media player page.
If you need more help or more detailed assistance let me know.
