I have no sound and a split drive

THis is my problem I have no sound. I have a new computer there is a sound card installed. the drive is split one side is english xp the other is Japanese xp. the English side tells me that my sound device is set as the default. The Japanese side tells me that there is no sound device and the option to pick the default device is unavailable. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I am sure if anyone knows how to fix the english xp if it were doing this it would be the same on Japanese.

It seems to me that the driver is not installed in your Japanese XP version. You should get the model number of the sound card if possible and go to the manufacturers website. Do a search for the driver, download it, and install it. This will fix your problem. To check you can right click on my computer, click properties, click system, click device manager, and you should find a questionmark in the list. If this is found, it confirms that you need to download the driver. Good Luck!

XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs


Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

A hard drive has nothing to do with a sound card EXCEPT it stores the driver which tells the sound card how to work. The issue is most likely that you don't have the driver for the sound card. If you had sound before than this is the problem. Go to computer manufacturer web site and download the driver.

if you installed a new hard drive.. did you also installed windows on that new hd? if you did.. you may need to also install the sound card drivers.

the sound from your speakers depend on the sound card on your computer, and the sound card works only if you install the drivers that are specific for that sound card/computer. if you need help finding the drivers post back you computer specs (model, brand etc) and operating system and we'll help you find the drivers that may need to be reinstalled.

My computer wont play the sound when im trying to listen to music or play a movie.i would like to know how to get the sound back on


Have u recently installed a new DVD Drive?

If so and even if so, you need to have an audio cable installed connecting the DVD drive to the Sound Card in order to get sound when playing a MUSIC CD or DVD player from that drive. So double check that inside of the PC.

Next, go into the Audio Settings in the Control Panel and make sure sound is not muted.

I was about to install a PCI sound card TM P1018 in my cpu. How will i do it?


Shut down the computer. Unplug machine Disconnect all peripherals from the computer. Remove the cover of the chassis and lay computer on its side if it is a tower. Remove the back panel, if necessary. Locate the existing sound card if there is one already installed. If it is screwed in on the side of the slot hole, unscrew it and pull the card out firmly. 8If the computer doesn't already have a sound card, find an open slot. 9Knock out or unscrew the metal plate on the card's slot holder on the back panel. Step10Insert the sound card gently but firmly into the slot. Rock it into position if necessary, but don't force it. Don't touch any connectors on the card. Step11Connect cables from the CD-ROM drive to the sound card. Step12Replace the back panel and any removed screws. Screw sound card into slot holder if it has a screw hole. Step13Reconnect monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Connect speakers to the sound card's ports. Step14Turn on the speakers and restart the computer. Step15If Windows detects the sound card upon startup, follow instructions to install the card's driver and additional software. If Windows doesn't detect sound card, manually complete the installation using the Add New Hardware control panel. Step16Play music CD to test sound card. Step17Shut down computer. Step18Replace cover of computer. Reboot computer.
