Question about Computers & Internet
I have a question about the sound on my computer. My sound was fine,when I turned on my computer it says that my audio
controller is missing and to reinstall with the CD. I don't have a CD for it and don't think I ever did. Is there anything I can do to bring my sound back? I have Windows XP. Thanks!
There are a number of steps to troubleshoot sound problems in XP. If XP supports your audio device by default, you should be able to install or update the driver for it.
If not, you need to identify the sound card model and type and get a driver from the manufacturer.

Tips for a great answer:
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to
click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers make sure you have selected the
(appropriate speakers) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the correct speaker settings there
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
hope this helps
if his does not fix the problem
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker
volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any
further volume control settings you will need to right click on the speaker volume icon system select adjust volume
click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers select the appropriate speakers
from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand system
speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make
sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer
if you dont have a motherboard disk
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: motherboard name audio driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
hope this helps
