Remove it then. A new one will only cost about 10GBP. Or move it to a different slot in the tower.

My grandad has bought a computer and i tryed to show him how to play a dvd but no sound was playing. I found out there was no sound card? I dont actually know what this means but surely a computer should...


If there is no sound card. Probably it was disabled the sound and maybe there is no really sound card was installed. To make it short buy a PCI sound card, turn off your computer and install the card to PCI slot and turn on your computer and your computer will detect that there is a found new hardware. Ignore it and insert the cd installer and install the driver of your sound card. If it's ask you to restart just restart your computer to update its system. In case that there is a built in sound on your computer check your motherboard model and search for the driver from their official website and download and install, if you download the correct driver it will automatically installed your sound and your sound will be working. Have a nice day!

Sound


More than likely, your sound card is hard soldered to your motherboard.  Look on the back of the computer where you plug your speakers and microphone in.  That's your sound card.

Do you have a problem, why you need to find where it is?

I have no sound can you help on this


Hi!

You never mentioned if you are using a built in on your motherboard or a sound card hardware...

Anyways... If you are using a built in sound card, make sure it is enable on your CMOS/BIOS setup.. And you have installed the right driver for your sound card from the cd driver of your motherboard...

And if you are using a pci sound card, please check if its properly seated on the motherboard (better if you disconnect the sound card from the motherboard... clean its contact point... and insert it properly on the motherboard)...See the model of your sound card... download the latest driver from the internet and install it.
If this still did not work, better check on the device manager if the sound card is properly installed, if its not it should have a yellow question mark attached to the sound/multimedia devices..

You can also check if windows xp keeps on detecting windows compatible sound driver..how? first, shutdown your computer.. disconnect your sound card from the motherboard...turn on computer..Right click on My Computer and click properties...Select Hardware and click Device Manager...on the View menu click devices by type...double click the "sound, video and game controllers"....if you don't see from the list the model of your sound card, then try disabling or uninstalling the listed audi driver and or multimedia devices..shutdown your computer..

Now connect your sound card to your motherboard.. turn on the computer..System will detect and add new hardware for your sound card.... install the driver... restart your computer and hear if it makes a log on sounds..

Hope this instruction help you.


Much appreciated if you rate this solution.. thanks..

You need to update or reinstall the driver for the sound card.Your computer manufacturer support and drivers will have your driver for the sound card if its OEM with your computer.
