Question about Computers & Internet
Which operating system are you using? And is the sound on-board or do you have a sound card in it? Normally Windows will install a generic driver to make the sound work.
Click "start" and open "control panel". Then, depending on how your system is laid out, you want to open "device manager" and look for "sound, video, and game controllers". (You may havee to click on system, then hardware, then device manager to get there). Once you click on sound you will see one or two audio devices if your sound is on-board. Click one and see if it tells you the system is working properly. If it isn't it may tell you there are no drivers loaded or available. Check all the devices you have. If one has no drivers loaded, you can check update drivers. Or if they all have drivers loaded you may still check update drivers. Windows will pick the next set of drivers and load them. You can check drivers and you may see a list of several. If not, then you can either go to the manufacturer's web site for the sound that you have and download drivers. There is a good chance it is either nVidia or ATI.
If you have a sound card that is a different procedure. Write back and tell me which type sound system you have if the above doesn't work for you.
