Re: audio problems

There is a driver disk that accompanies your system. Install it and this should work fine. Here is how to install...if you want to not know.... Put the CD in the drive if you get an autorun screen click the appropriate icon [or just click the sound driver icon,if it is there]. If this did not work...try this; Right click the My computer - click properties - click hardware - device manager Then click the 'scan for hardware changes' icon.... if a new hardware found message is displayed, then click next and so on until you get it finished. Note; sometimes BIOS settings prevent audio devices from getting confugred automatically. so if the udio option is disabled in the BIOS setup you should enable it.

2.Try to download Driver for the audio to function properly (if it is external)
3. If you have a built-in sound controller Try to install your motherboard driver to update all its chipsets

Problem with sound after windows XP installation and realtek

Is that onboard sound device..?, it seems your sound device broken, if so you can't solve problem with installing driver, you must have PCI Sound Card to enable sound on your computer.

No sound after windows XP installation + realtek installation

check the series, is it really require realtek? because the driver doesn't depends on the windows XP, but the type, model and series of motherboard or chipset brand.... anyway, realtek doesnt written on the device manager, check to your control panel - sound and audio device, is all enabled?or does any volume elements are muted..

Audio CD sound Prob

Various conditions may cause this problem. To troubleshoot, check the following:Microsoft Volume Control or your mixer program mute options and volume sliders. 
Connect headphones to the stereo phone jack on your CD-ROM drive’s front panel; adjust the volume control settings on the drive. If there is sound from your headphones, check the CD audio cable connection from the CD-ROM drive to the audio card. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Joystick port is not working 
To troubleshoot, check the following:
The audio card joystick port conflicts with another joystick port in the system. Disable the audio card joystick port, and use the system’s joystick port. 
The joystick drivers, MSJSTICK.DRV and VJOYD.VXD, may not be installed. Uninstall the joystick, then reinstall to load the drivers. The drivers should come with the driver CD or floppy diskette with your sound card.
Computer hangs or restarts during installation
A hardware conflict may cause the computer to hang or restart during the installation procedure. Check the following to resolve the conflict:
A hardware conflict with another device in your system. 
Previously installed sound card hardware or software needs to be removed. 
The audio card is not seated in the slot properly. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices.
Resolving hardware conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more devices contend for the same resources. Conflicts between your audio card and another device may occur regarding the I/O address, IRQ line, or DMA channel:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. In the Device Manager, a plus sign(+) represents an expandable list of items. A minus sign (-) represents an expanded list. A circled exclamation mark denotes a conflict. 
Double-click Sound, video, game controllers. A list of multimedia devices appears. 
Select your audio card. 
Choose the Propertis button. 
Click the Resources tab. 
Uncheck the Use automatic settings option. 
Change "Settings based on:" if alternate settings are available. 
Determine the conflict by reviewing the "Conflicting device list".
Select the conflicting item in the "Resource Settings" list. 
Click the Change Settings button. 
Use the mouse to select a new setting. 
Select OK to close each of the properties windows, and restart your computer.
Audio card is not automatically detected
To manually configure your audio card for Windows 95/98:
Click "Start" on the taskbar, and select Settings from the Start menu. 
Select Control Panel. The Control Panel group appears. 
Double-click the Add New Hardware icon. The Add New Hardware Wizard dialog appears. 
Select Next to continue. 
Choose Yes to have Windows search for new hardware, then select Next 
Select Next to continue. 
Select Finish, and follow the prompts to complete the new hardware installation.
CD does not automatically run when you insert it in the drive
To enable the "Audio insert notification" feature:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and select Properties. The System Properties dialog appears. 
Click the Device Manager tab. A list of devices appears. 
Double-click CD-ROM, and select your CD-ROM drive. 
Choose the Properties button. The CD-ROM drive properties dialog appears. 
Choose the Settings tab. 
Click the "Auto insert notification" option to enable. 
Select OK until all Properties dialogs are closed, and restart Windows for the changes to take effect.
No sound is heard from speakers
Verify the following:
Check the Microsoft Volume Control or the Audio Mixer Program mute options and volume sliders. 
Ensure the speakers are properly connected to the audio card’s output connector. 
Check the volume control and power connection of the speakers, if they are amplified. (Refer to the speakers documentation for detailed information). 
Ensure a hardware conflict does not exist between your audio card and another device in your system. 
PCI bus mastering devices may be interfering with the operation of the audio card. Temporarily remove non-essential PCI bus mastering devices. If the device is a display card, upgrade the display card drivers, or set the card to the default Windows VGA mode.
If you are experiencing no sound only during audio CD playback, see "No sound is heard from audio (music) CDs" above.

Static sounds are heard in wave files
Check to see if the static sounds are heard in all wave files. If the difficulty occurs only with certain games, refer to the software manufacturer’s documentation. To troubleshoot static sounds heard in all wave files:
Try different resource settings for the audio card, or set the card to use low DMA. 
Move the audio card to another PCI slot. Feedback from the power supply or another device may be responsible.

I updated my computer and after restarting it i have no audio device installed

No problem - that's what you have us for :)

It's possible that if you updated to Windows Service Pack 3, you might have lost the driver. In the past 2 weeks, I've seen more problems caused by a Windows Service Pack!

Go into your Control Panel, under Add/Remove Programs and scroll all the way down to the bottom. Find the Service Pack that you just installed and remove it. Reboot.

Check for your audio device. If still not there, reinstall the Service Pack again (only if you feel it's necessary) then go the computer manufacturer's website and download the audio device driver. I'm surprised that after a reboot, you're not prompted to "install new hardware". Are you seeing anything like that when you reboot?

Go into Device Manager as well (Control Panel, System) and look under "Sound and Video" and see if you have any audio devices installed ...or if there are any exclamations or "splats" next to anything.

Send me an update when you can :)
