    Hi, you are not hearing sounds from your computer right? In your Device Manager, it is indicated with yellow(!) because you have to install the audio driver. Post the Manufacturer and model name of your motherboard or sound card so I can give you the driver or link.

    *Drop me a comment so I can assist you.

No sound from toshiba satellite t115_s1100, the motherboard is a toshiba satellite t110, i cannot play itunes, dvds ect. think it is a problem with sound card, can i fix manually? it is under warranty...


If its a driver issue then ofcourse you can do it yourself. Open device manager. Start-> Run type in devmgmt.msc and under sound video and game controllers see if any of the devices have a yellow exclamatory mark next to them. Also let me know whats your OS(XP, Vista, Windows 7?) so that I can get you the driver.

No sound from PC, problem with multimedia audio controller


The yellow mark indicated the multimedia audio controller driver was not installed, therefore the audio won't work/no sounds.
You need to identify the make and model of the audio card and if you haven't the audio installation CD then you can download the driver from the manufacturer's WEB site.
Since the repairer fixed your computer, he should have installed the audio driver. I suggest you get the repairer to install the audio driver as it should have been part of the repair service.
Also if you see any other yellow marks against any devices in the DEVICE MANAGER then these will also need the drivers installed.

I have afrontech jil7000sound card it couldnot be installed from the cd how to download from the site


Seems like there is no auto installation option in the cd.
If you have not tried the device manager installation way, try the following.

open control panel->system->hardware->device manager

then select the audio card name from the device list which is not installed or has an exclamatory icon next to the device not installed. double click it and a new window will open from that select
update driver-> no i don't want to go online-> i'll install driver my self->search in removable media(cdrom) then the driver will install automatically.
this way you can install.
