Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

Raspal

No audio devices installed cant play audio files


First check if a windows machine by going to start/control panel/sound and audio devices and see if a sound card is listed. Check the setting under hardware and audio. You need two essentials to play audio files. You need a sound card and the software to play audio files. Most desktop computers come with some type of sound card but you can buy one from a local "Best Buys", "Walmart" online or computer store. They are relatively inexpensive and can be installed as a DIY in an open PCI slot inside the back of your machine or take it to a computer store. Windows Media Player comes with Windows and Apple's Quick time with Macs so that should take care of the player end of things. Hope this helps out. Give me some feedback if it does. Thanks

This should be a compatible driver for your soundcard (AC97), download and reinstall it.

If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.

Sound problem on my HP desktop


Try going into the control panel - Sounds. Find the different items that can have sounds. There you can select a sound and play it. Do you hear it? If so, it's not the computer or card setup. If you don't hear any of the sounds there, it's probably the sound card (either hardware or drivers). The CD plays through the soundcard so it's not likely the hardware.

As to the keyboard control, that's likely HP specific drivers that are missing or wrong. If you reinstalled Windows on this machine - you may not have all the original drivers that came with the machine, especially if you downloaded them from HP support. Sometimes those "special" functions are hard to find.

Hope that gives you something to work with,
