Re: sound problem

My SoundMax driver does not install every other time I reboot. This is MS XP on a Lenovo Thinpad. I have had problems with the laptop but this one happens every day! Rebooting always gets it back to working; then it will dispappear again for no reason. Reboot & it won't work; reboot, then it works. I have no solution yet.

Sound is not working

The below should solve the problem
1. Downloaded the latest driver from from the Downloads and Drivers section.2. Uninstall the Driver from either the Control Panel (Sound Max) or by going to the Device Manager and rightclicking the driver and Uninstall.3. Restart the Computer.4. Install the Driver downloaded.
If the above does not work
a) Faulty hardware is not allowing driver to be installed and sound to come out.b) Corruption in Windows, that would require a new reformat of PC.

Audio system of my laptop is not working. it shows error code 18 when i try to re - install it and shows error code 88780078 when I try to play any track


Let your computer install the best audio device and detect your sound device.

Right click to MY COMPUTER ICON, choose the Device Manager, then delete all the AUDIO DRIVERS AND DEVICES INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER, then restart your computer.

It will install and configure correctly your sound device and sound driver.

,,,I just go to the control panel and try to remove all the trash and accidentally I remove the sound max.. and then that's when my computer started with no sound

no problem.
right click my computer.
properties-------->under hardware tab click device manager.
under actions click scan for hardware changes.
it's done.

if this does not help you need to install sound driver again from your driver's cd.
