Question about E-Machines eMachines Refurbished EMA SYSTEM BOARD MODEL T2984 eMachines (102257) PC Desktop

Sound problem. I have a Emachine T2984 and the sound does not work. I go into the hardware and try to update the "Multimedia Audio Controller" (that currently has a caution/warning picture next to it) and when i try to "reinstall driver" or "update driver" the computer just turns off and restarts. Still no sound. How can i fix this??

Re: Sound problem.

SAMMY44,I have the same computer,and the same problem...we need to find the right AC-97 codecs for this type of computer...I found this out by typing the motherboard number on google..Its a real pain in the but to find the codecs for the onboard sound card...your best bet is to buy a pci slotted sound card,or other wise,,you can be like me,,and try try to know your computer on the inside.and try to find the codecs yourself that way if you ever run into this problem again,,you'll know what to do!!!

Re: Sound problem.

It is a common problem for many boards these days. don't use the sound on board. get a sound card and install it into one of your pci slots and use it instead. leave the faulty onboard sound alone.

windows update may be able to provide a driver under the custom scan and the hardware order to pull sound drivers from the computer's manufacturer you have to go to their website and typically select the support and drivers download section and select your computer name and model number. You should then be able to download and install the drivers. Good luck!

Sound card drivers

SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder.
