Go to the computer manufacturer's support website, and find the main page for your computer.
Click on the Drivers download tab.

Download, and Save, the Audio driver file.
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Go to the folder the audio driver was saved to, and Double-click on the audio file name.
(Opens file)

The Installation Wizard will come up.
Follow the easy instructions. (Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish at the bottom.
Windows knows the correct place to put the audio driver file. No need to change anything)

If you state the computer manufacturer's name, and it's Model Number, I can give you more exacting information.

I dont have any idea what it is i just know its old isnt there any universal driver ?


yes there are universal drivers if you are having problems with your sound
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

In my system the sound system is not working . the mother boar is p5gc-mx/1333 witch sound drive o loaded in the system


There could be more than a couple of reasons for this to occur:
1) Check that the external speaker mini-plug is connected to the back (of front) of your system.
2) Ensure the speakers work connecting them to another device, such as a portable CD player, or cassette player.
3) If the speakers work, then the cables are also Ok; then try the following, assuming your OS is Windows, of any flavour:
(In XP) Go to Control Panel and double click on System. Run the Device Manager utility and select your audio/multimedia card.
Right click on it and select "Uninstall".
Close all windows and restart your machine.
(Vista) Right click on Computer and select Manage. Next, select Device Manager.
Uninstall the audio card using procedure above. Restart your machine.
Windows should detect the audio card as though it's the first time it's been installed, and it will try to find the device drivers for it from a known drivers directory.
If the detection phase fails to find the drivers, then load the CD that came with your audio card and insert it on the tray, and point the utility to search on this CD.
You may need to browse up to the directory that actually contains the drivers (a folder usually named so). The way to find out when Windows has found the driver files is to notice that the Ok button is no longer grayed out.
Good luck!

No sound from speakers


Please make sure that your speakers are plugged into the right jack in the back of your desktop. Also please make sure that your sound is turned up and the playback devices are working properly.

Sound is nt coming from speakers?


Do you have two sound cards in your computer now or have you removed or disabled the old sond card?

FYI, looks like in the media player you havent selected the right sound output.

Try this,
1. In Windows Media Payer, Menu bar-> Tools -> Plug-ins -> Options.

2. Go to Device tab and click on Speakers ad the click Proprties button below.

3. Click Advanced

4. Select your new hadrware.(Creative Aspire 5.1)

5. Click Set as default.

6. Click OK, OK OK...

Then restart Windos media player and try again.

-------------
Another thought, make sure you have pluged the jacks right and you speakers are working right.

Good Luck!!!

Dynex soundcard is installed however my pc still has no sound!


Hi Sammantha78,

I had a similar problem with my computer and I went and bought new sound card and installed it and I still had no sound. I then went and bought a new set of speakers and now i got sound. I suggest you test another set of speakers on your computer to see if it’s not your Altec Lansing speakers that is not working.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong
