SOURCE: No sound from my P4VXAS motherboard

You may havee the onboard sound disabled in the BIOS. Check to see if the onboard is currently enabled, and if so, respond back.

You will need to reinstall your audio driver. However, if your audio is defected, then reinstalling will not fix the problem. But try reinstalling the drivers first.
Let me know what happens.

SOURCE: Sound Drivers

you have to download the sound drivers and install the software..can't give you the exact driver as haven't specified much about your PC.
still try to download one of the common driver like realtek- Ac97... from the following URL ..

or try to download other audio drivers and install it...your problem would be fixed.

hope to get rated as fixed...

Why my sound is not avalable playback and recording devices

If your system is not playing out audio music or even the start up tone then you need a sound driver on your system but if you have a sound driver on the system already and you did not hear any sound coming from your system probably you disable it. Goto start menu click on MYCOMPUTER and from there right click on it and click on properties from there you will click on hardware then click on device manager from the device manager you will found the sound /audio driver then by it right click on it and click enable . that will allow the system to voice out ok.

make sure startup type is set to automatic.

Restart your system.That's it

Note :  There are hardware which except wrong driver too then in the device manager, there will be a yallow exclaimation mark.

Check that one too.

After re-installing winXP, my notebook cannot find any updated audio driver from the web, and thus cannot play any music file except the system beeping sounds.

Do you have a media player application like Windows Media Player? Also, go to the manufacturer's website. Most of them will list audio drivers. If that doesn't work, look in the device manager to try to identify the audio hardware and go to their website for drivers.
