Well my computer is just recovering from a virus that deleted almost all info on it. At first everything was big and there was sound. However now there is no sound but regular image. I have tried unplugging and plugging and even rewireing the portal. However when I try to change sound options there is nothing to click or change and it is all grey.
This may not be specific or the best grammer however i'm in a hurry and have to do this fast
Help would be appreciated the computer ahs been this way for almost 2 months now.
=) Thanks for the help if you have any
Right click on "My Computer" and go to the Properties > Hardware > Device Manager... Expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers. If you don't see a sound card listed, you will need to install a driver. If you see your sound card, right click and uninstall then click OK and reboot. If this doesn't fix it, hit me up for a live chat session and I will work with you. Good luck.

I think you need all the drivers in the computer and not just the sound driver since you wiped out everything there.
Here's what you can do:
Go to the website of your comptuer's manufacturer and auto detect the brand of your computer. If they don't have it, then just try searching for it in the computer's casing. You should find the model name somewhere. Make sure to select the support and downloads page in the website and enter the operating system that your computer is currently running. All drivers will be shown on the screen.
Download the following:
1. Video Driver 2. Chipset Driver 3. Audio Driver 4. Internet or Network Driver
You should also install an anti-virus in the computer to make sure that you won't get any virus. After installing everything and if everything's working great, then you can other programs there. You can also add a tech software which can boost your computer's performance like RadarSync which will keep all your drivers updated.

Unless you have used a recovery disc set or recovery partition on your hard drive to restore the original factory software image, you'll need to download and install the sound drivers for your computer. Most computers have integrated sound, and Windows almost always needs those drivers installed separately. You should be able to download the drivers from the computer manufacturer's website if you have a name-brand machine, or from the motherboard manufacturer's site. Once you install the proper drivers your sound should be working again.
the drivers might have been corrupted by something or you might have got a virus run your antivrus program and test for a virus then you might have to uninstall then reinstall either the sound drivers or the sound card make sure you have both of these devices baked up to a disc before uninstalling a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver as for the sound control panel sounds and audio,volume you can adjust the volume or advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to sound,video and game cotrollers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers hope this helps
From a distance, it sounds like you do not have the sound card drivers installed. Since it is a SoundBlaster card, go to creative.com and download a utility that finds, indentifies, and then installs the drivers for your sound card. That should fix the problem. If not, then you have other issues going on with motherboard drivers not being installed installed.
You haven't reinstalled the drivers for your sound device. If it's a Dell, you'll either need the Blue/Gray CD that came with the computer labeled "Device Drivers", or go to support.dell.com enter your service tag #, and select "Drivers", and download drivers for sound.
You might have to reinstall the software that came with the speakers since you had to wipe your computer clean when the virus was on there. The speakers will not work until the software is installed back on your computer.
