Question about Intel Frontier Design Dakota 24-Bit PCI Soundcard Sound Card

2 Answers

Hearing sounds on my computer

I've had my Compaq desktop computer for over a year now and was recently told by a friend that my computer had a virus. He suggested that I delete my entire hard drive to get rid of it and to reinstall all my software, which he did. Now the virus is gone and the computer is working like new again. The only problem now is that after installing the itunes software, I am unable to listen to or hear any of the music. So I went back to my friend explaining my new problem and he said i need to download a sound card but i dont know which one i need. Therefore, my question now is how do i find out which one i need?

What your friend means is a sound card driver. I dont understand why he didnt do this for you. But, if you give me the make and model number of your compaq, I will send you the link so you can download it and install it.

I am not hearing any sound at all though i have increased every volume buttom

You check your system information if sound driver was installed, type dxdiag in your run command. Wait till a tool bar about your system info will appear then check your sound driver if installed. If it was not installed. you have to install a sound driver. Look at your sound card installed and download from internet any necessary sound card driver compatible to your sound card hardware and mother board. Just try this,. I have solved many computers by following this procedure.
