L dont have sound

Need more Details. New windows install? Just Stopped Working, Program add or new hardware? Not knowing this I would check your mixer(double click the little speaker in the taskbar) first. Make sure it is not muted or turned down. Then go to the device manager in the control panel in the System program and make sure there are no conflicts. Or missing drivers. If drovers are missing go to you manufacturer websites and download drivers for your system.

How to install add/remove icon

Assumption you are using XP Operating System(OS).
You cannot install "add/Remove" icon to your system, because it is part of the OS.
For some reasons the add/remove programs option (appwiz.cpl) is corrupted has `gone missing` from the control panel? Your PC might be infected with Malwares or "Nasty Root-Kits".

1. Download "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version", install update and do a full scan and remove any of those "nasty files".
2. Download "SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition", install update and do a full scan and remove any of those "nasty files".
3. Do a virus scan too!

After the clean up, reboot your PC and see whether your 'Add/Remove' is there.

If you still can't see the "Add/Remove" icon,
then download the Registry file "28. Control Panel Icons are Missing" - download the registry file and add to your registry @

Hope it helps.

I have reinstall the windows xp prof to my hp laptop. wen i play music no sounds. wat should i do?

The reason you dont have any sound is that the sound card on your Laptop needs a driver to work normally again, There is usually a website where you can download the drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop for example : dell, compaq.. just reply with the model of your computer and i can help you find the necessary drivers for the sound.
Cheers !!!

I can't remove Gameztar. Even in the Add/Remove control panel.

Not always, but usually if you re-install a program that won't uninstall, then you can uninstall it. I know it sounds odd, but the reason is if your uninstall files are missing or corrupt you cannot uninstall.

Dvd disk drive not showing in my computer


The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

No sound on my computer

Go back to the Control Panel, click on Add or Remove Programs, look for 'Add/Remove Windows Components' and check if the media player is checked.

Most sound cards and on-board sound chips have their own software but the Media Player will suffice.

If it is checked, go to 'System' (in the Control Panel), then click on the Hardware tab, then Device Manager.

Go down the list to see if Sound, video and game controllers has a red 'X' showing.
If it does, then either the driver is damaged or the hardware itself has failed.
If it is only the driver, you can delete the exed item and try rebooting to see if Windows restores it.

If that doesn't work, the you may have a system board problem (expensive).

Let me know how you do-
