Any computer manufactured within the last 5 or so years should come with a sound card by default, but check the back of your computer, verify that you have a sound card (audio output device) installed, check for a light green audio jack. If none, you likely have no sound card installed.

Assuming you do have a sound card installed, right click on My Computer and choose Manage, select Device Manager and see if there are any items with either an X or a yellow exclamation mark. If you do have either, you may only need to install the software (free) for the audio output device. To know which software you will need, it will be best to visit the website of the manufacturer you purchased it from, enter your model information in their support page and proceed from there.

If you don't know who made your computer, then it will be a lengthier, but not impossible, process to figure out what software you need to install.

What type of computer is this?
If you are building this unit yourself, and your motherboard does not come with audio. Then you must purchase a Sound card. I think Soundblaster is a good choice...Try clicking on sys information and see if you system has Audio. if so then check and make sure you have plugged your speakers in too the right output port, look at the back of the computer its usually the green jack.

Thank you

Your sound drivers have either become corrupt or removed somehow. What you need to do is download the correct sound card driver again or use the disc it was originally installed with and re-install the sound driver.

Problems with audio after installing radeon hd 2400


Hi,

This happens because the video card has hdmi output. Since hdmi output can carry audio signals also, the audio driver gets disabled. Uninstall audio driver and video driver both, install the video driver, and then install audio driver. after installing the audio driver, in playback and recording devices choose choose the audio output device you purchased along with the computer. This should fix the issue.

Revert back for any clarifications.

Warm Regards,

No audio file will play on WMP, no dvd or audio disk will play...


Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again
