Question about Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Sound Card

1 Answer

No sound I have a Dell computer, about 4 years old. My husband used Norton SystemWorks to improve the speed and performance. Now we have no sound. He thinks the sound card is still fine but he disabled it or somehow turned that system off.

    You were right! There is a yellow question mark by the Multimedia Audio Controller. Now what do I do?

To check the status of the audio adapter...right-click on My Computer>Properties> Hardware >Device Manager.

In the list of hardware devices, look for Sound, Video and Game Controllers. If Windows has detected any problems with a device or driver, you should see a small yellow or red indicator next to the troublesome device.

    Right-click on the Multimedia Audio Controller and click on Update Driver...attempt to update the driver. It should be able to find the correct driver online...but if it can't, you may need to restore the driver from the original drivers disk that came with your computer. Most Dell drivers can also be downloaded from the support area of Dell's website. To make sure you get the correct drivers from Dell, you'll need to enter the "Service Tag" number from the label on your computer.
