Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Make sure that you have every single update that Windows has available. There is a service pack 3 plus 63 more after that. There other drivers for the motherboard that have to be installed before the sound card can be recognized. One is called Microsoft Bus Driver for High definition audio. You can download it seperately here first and then download the Windows updates.

Once you download this, reinstall the audio drivers and it will find the hardware. I assume you have realtek?

Please let me know if you have any questions.

My speakers wont wo


Hi Jennifer,

When did sound work fine last time ??
Did you make any specific changes ??
Check if it is set to mute... if it is unmute it..

To unmute it-- you can click the little icon at the task bar at the bottom of your screen -- clear the box and see if it works..

If everything seems ok do the following :--

Go to control panel - click on sound devices option - see if all the options are greyed out -- if it is then you need to reinstall the sound drivers ..

You can let me know your computer model number and i'll paste a link for you so that you can download the driver...

Thanks..

No sound


Actually the problem is incorrect installation of Drivers.........so firstly uninstall the drivers from ur CONTROL PANEL and re-install it once again...........if the problem is same, then re-install the XP operating system sp2 with different CD serial and then drivers.....
CAUTION: see thst there is no virus exists in ur HARD DISK.......

No sound


Depending on your pc it sounds like you just had either a new version of windows put on your pc or you recently wiped it. You need new drivers downloaded for your sound card if you do not still have the drivers disk that came with your pc try to google search a download,

Sound


Did you have sound before?
If yes then follow this for xp:
Start/control panel/Sounds, Speech, & Audio Devices/Sound & Audio Devices. Is page greyed out? If yes then most likely its your sound card or on board sound, or your missing drivers.
If not greyed out go to "Sounds" tab, click on any "Program events" sound under Windows then click little black arrow next to browse on bottom right . Sound? If the arrow is greyed out then its the same; audio hardware device or audio driver.
If there is still no sound click on "Hardware" tab and first Sound,video and game controller then "properties". This will tell you under "Device status" if this device is working properly. Do this for each Sound, video ect.... selection in the list. I have found there are usually 6 listings. If not then you are most likely missing a sound driver.
