Question about E-Machines (T3104) PC Desktop
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?
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

Things You'll Need:
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.
