Question about E-Machines (T3104) PC Desktop

Audio and video drivers

Recently performed a full recovery. Device manager says that integrated audio and video drivers are not installed and asks if I want to reinstall. Computer can not find them on hard drive or OEM restore disc. Downloaded drivers from E-Machine Support and burned disc and attempted install. Computer tells me driver file already exists and do I want to overwrite with new driver files. Answering yes made no difference, answering no makes no difference. No matter what path or option I take I get this message "specified location contains no driver information". Install hardware wizard recommended various other drivers found on hard drive but none would work. E-Machine support recommended unistalling drivers that harware wizard found then attempt another full recovery. I did with same results but this time my computer tells me there is no audio or video hardware connected and therefore no drivers are needed. Should I take the computer out back and introduce it to a 12 gauge shotgun?

    after several late nights I attempted to redownload drivers. Then I used search to find them again. After that I was able to use my "file" tool off toolbar to choose Open. From there I had to choose which program to use to open because windows would not open it. Look into every subfolder for every program until I found a file called setup. This did the trick even though this method is not found in any install instruction that I know of. So for anyone having similar prob, try this. I discoverd it by either accident or God's providence.

When you are in the device manager have the computer search for new hardware and see if the devices show up. As for the drivers the ones off the manufacturer website should definitely run the hardware.

Before you search for hardware in windows get into bios and make sure the devices are enabled. If the devices are enabled and the drivers off the man. website do not work the shotgun will. Well it will make you feel better but your video and sound won't work

No Audio file; no sound


I had a problem with a sound card on a Dell machine. All test showed it was working fine but it still produced no sound. I tried reloading the driver and then tried a newer driver going to the manufacturers web site for support and it still did not work. I did make an observation that some Windows sounds (like a new email) was coming through. I use HMDI for both sound and video so I wondered if by chance the video card (Nividia) could do it all. I removed the sound card but nothing changed. I went into BIOS and found that there was a sound card integrated into the MB. I activated the integrated sound and now all works beautifully and the original sound card sits on my shelf. If you have an integrated sound card make sure it is not ON if you also are using the discrete card and also if you remove your discrete card then turn the integrated on, It worked for me.

Your Device Manager not registering the device is worrisome. Maybe remove the card reboot and then shutdown reinstall the card and reboot and see if it picks it up. Oxide or dust on the pins can be a problem. There are parts cleaner sprays that help, the fumes are strong so make sure you have good ventilation and try not to breathe any more fumes than necessary.

Sound not coming in win xp sp3 even after updating correct sound driver?


Do you still have the unknown device in device manager? If so, you need to install a different driver. If not, go into device manager, expand Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. For each device under that heading, right-click the device, then click update driver software, choose "Search Automatically..." It will then go to the windows update site and see if there is a driver there that is listed as more recent, and it will install that driver, if such a driver is found. If that doesn't work, make sur ethat y ou manually find the correct sound driver installer, and then right-click whichever device obviously represents the sound hardware driver, and click Uninstall. Reboot afterward. Then reinstall the audio driver. If that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall windows.

No sound


No-Sound Problem?

Instructions!

Things You'll Need:

  • Driver and Application Recovery Cd's
  • Updated sound driver software

Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings

Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.

Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, un-check them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary

If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers

Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.

Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."

Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.

Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery Cd's that came with your Windows XP system.

Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

My pc no sound but there an icon of audio.


Its quite possible that you have more than one audio output device. Integrated and Non-integrated. 1, make sure audio plug is plugged into the right sound device and port 2, If you updated your sound card or any recent updates from mircrosoft its possible the new drivers will make it seem to work but really they don't. go to start, right click on Computer, go to properties, and then look for the advanced tab (xp), or device manager to the left (vista+ users) go to sound,video and game controllers. right click on the sound device and go to properties, click on driver tab, then roll back drivers. if it says there are no drivers to roll back to.. try the other device if theres 2 audio devices and try to roll back that one.

Audio


If the device is not installed, try checking the device driver on device manager. Right click on my computer ---> manage --> click on device manager -->  look for sound, video and game controllers --> expand the category and you should be seeing soundmax integrated digital audio below it. If it doesn't appear, go this website to download your driver for the audio --- > http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R94481&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=122481
Inform me if this quick fix doesn't work.

No audio after reformating


Hi,
If there are no problems in device manager like a yellow question mark or exclamation mark on the devices, that means the other drivers are installed properly. Try to check if the speakers are ok as well. Try the speakers on another pc or device and check if it's working there just to eliminate the speakers as one of the problems.

Do you have an integrated audio?
