We accidently removed/deleted the sound driver for windows xp. Wat to do???


The driver you need is specific to audio device installed on your PC. Have your Windows XP cd ready and follow these steps.
  • On the taskbar click start.
  • From the start menu select Control Panel
  • Locate the System icon and open it.
  • Click the Hardware tab
  • Click device manager button to open.
  • Locate Sound, Video and game controllers and open by clicking on plus (+) sign.
  • Locate your audio device. If you have onboard audio, i.e., built in to motherboard, it will indicate intergrated audio.
  • Double click on device to open.
  • Select Update Driver.
  • You'll be prompted to insert CD.
  • Driver will be installed from the XP cd.
You might want to go to the microsoft web site to see if updated drivers are available for your device.

Sound problem


open the CPU, look at the sound for the name and model of the card. go to their site and search for the driver. install it. alternatively, so to device manager under the system application in control panel, and see if the sound card driver is missing. refesh the device manager so that windows can detect it and see if windows have the driver preinstalled.
