    i cannot hear any audio from my speakers, and recieve messages saying i have no sound device installed. I accidently uninstalled sound max from my add/remove programs list. How do i get it back to cure this problem?

    I am a computer programmer from Visual Studio to MIPS processing on Playstation consoles and Direct "X" Programming on XBox console.
    I have devoloped several multi-million dollar point of sale systems and know my way WELL around a computer. I just wanted to make sure people know that I am a well educated person when it comes to computers, with over 25 years of programming experiance.

    My main soundcard is a top of the line SoundBlaserter X-Fi, Xtreme-Gamer(Fatal1ty Edition).

    One day it just freaked out and sounded like it was having some sort of error with looping distortion, then it rebooted the computer. When it booted back up, there was no sound.

    Went to audio device, no device was selectable and it would not let you choose a device.

    So I went into my bios, enabled the onboard sound card.
    It shows up in the Hardware Tab as being there and functioning properly, but you cannot choose it as an audio device.
    I also have a very good, top of the line professional fireware soundcard called a FirePod. I hooked it up, it was listed as working fine in the hardware section, but I can't choose it as the main device, again I can't choose anything. The Firepod loads in Neundo and functions perfectly within the program, but Windows will not use it.

    I am stumped. I can't figure it out.
    So if anyone can figure out how to restore the sound and fix the issue without reinstalling the O.S., that would be great. It could be something simple I am overlooking, but I can't figure it out.

If no sound card is detected then it may have been disabled in the BIOS. There is usually a message when the computer starts saying press to enter setup, press or whichever key is indicated and navigate to integrated peripherals to make sure audio is enabled.

    You would be well advised to show some appreciation of solutions offered and if they don't work in your case you should describe what happened rather than logging back in as a guest.

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.
