Total system crash, reinstalled windows xp,but now have no sound, cant find sound driver , looked on web,everything has a FREE scan!! what can I do please help

To find the dirvers for your soundcard you need to know the model of your motherboard (unless you have a descrete soundcard ?). There are 2 ways to find this.

1. Open the case, using a torch or well lit room try to find some markings that look like a model number and write them down.

2. Download CPUID from install / open it and look under the motherboard section for your motherboard model number.

You can then find the manufacturer of the motherboard unsing google and then the sound card drivers. Do NOT use any driver scanners they are probably malware or virus carriers and will not fix your issue.

If you can't find the drivers using the model number, reply to this post and i will find them for you :)

There is no audio or whatever sound that is produced by our computer from the time it was reformatted, what should we do?

all hardware require specific drivers to work
drivers are information that tell the operating system how the hardware works

so when you formatted your computer you must have not installed the device drivers for your sound card

if you have the soundcard on the motherboard (on-board soundcard) the the drivers will be provided in the motherboard CD
if you have a separate sound card then drivers will be included in the product package

Xp pro no sound

Hi Yoni,

The most likely reson why you still don't have sound is you were not able to install the sound card driver properly. I suggest you goto CONTROL PANEL then click on ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS then uninstall all the software/drivers related to your sound card, afterwards restart the computer. Then try reinstalling the sound driver again using the correct Sound Card driver disc. It should work.

Of course downloading the latest drivers for your sound card is always a very goof advise. Check your computer manual or your computer's specifications to know what sound card you actually have in the system. Even calling for techsupport if you bought this from a manufacturer is even better. If you have the information. Goto your computer manufaturers website and get. Otherwise you can download it from the soundcard manufacturer's website directly. Make sure to download the correct driver, since it's not going to fix your problem if you get the wrong one and it may cause problems.

I also suggest that you check if your sound card is still detected by the PC and if it's showing up. You can do this by going to right-click on MY COMPUTER, select PROPERTIES then goto the HARDWARE tab then select the button for DEVICE MANGER. Check if there is any "?" question mark symbol or "!" exclamation mark symbol. Most likely that is your sound card. If there is a red "X" then the device is disabled, you can right-click on it thn select ENABLE to mak it run again. If there is not an item with any of those symbol, you can check SOUND VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLLERS category and see if your soundcard is listed there.

For most systems there is an option in the BIOS to disable the soundcard (especially if its integrated!) check the BIOS to see if the soundcard was disabled there. Check the manual of your computer or motherboard to see how you can get into it.

Finally, I also suggest running your computer's diagnostics, if it has one. This gives you a better picture if the problem is hardware (sound card itself) or software (drivers).

Hop these suggestions help!

Peace! :)

No sound on the PC

Go to the manufacturer of the pc and/or the soundcard, download the soundcard driver.
Goto the control panel - system - hardware - device
Look for any devices that have a red or yellow mark next to it. Uninstall the device and reboot. When the system detects the device, load the driver U downloaded. If U have more than one device with a red or yellow mark, download the drivers for those devices and repeat the above.
