Go to START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / RUN.

In the command window type compmgnt.msc Under

System Tools click DEVICE MANAGER.

In the Device Manager click Sound, video, and game controllers.

Expand the tree by clicking on the (+) plus sign then select the

name of your sound device. Click Driver, then click Update Driver.

If it fails to update go to Windows Update by clicking

START / ALL PROGRAMS / WINDOWS UPDATE

Let it scan your computer and you'll want hardware under

Optional Updates. Your last choice is to go to the homepage

of your sound device's manufacturer.

Have windows xp service pack 3 loaded don't have sound


Goto Start, Control Panel, add or remove programs. Uninstall the sound card drivers. Reload the Sound card drivers from your Setup CD. Every thing should work fine then. When you load SP3 some of the drivers get corrupted (lost).

Hi mate...


Hi there. It sounds like the XP you have installed doesn't have the correct/updated driver for your sound card. Try installing the most current Sound driver from the manufacturer's website. It would also be a very good idea to download XP Service Pack 3 from Microsoft, as this will have added support and drivers in the database.

Let me know if it works

Thank you

Find sound drivers for windows service pack 3 pc help me how to install


Can you find and enter the manufacturer and model of the desktop PC in question? (probably on the computer case) Also can you identify the version of Windows that you are running (3.1, 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, etc). Listing anything you already know about the sound card would also help.

Thanks
