Base System Device drivers are usually installed by what the manufacturer calls "Chipset" drivers. If you are running Windows XP, there is an Intel Chipset driver available at the Lenovo Support Page for your model. If you are running an Operating System other than Windows XP, I would go to the above page and compare the drivers listed there with what you are seeing in Device Manager. Install the ones that are missing. Hope this helps!
Speakers do not need any drivers!! Your sound card need drivers.
If your sound card is PCI, remove it and reinsert it to the PCI slot again and see whether your system detect the device and use the sound CD to install the drivers. (Change PCI slots if necessary and turn off the PC before changes the PCI sound card).
If your audio device is intergrated device, check the Bios to make sure the sound/audio is enable.
Note: Check the device manager first to see any audio device had been install properly.
dis is most probable dat ur system is missing specific device driver..!! wat is the pci device..??
if ur sure abt the device n make..look for the device driver in the internet, by typing "<model no> driver download"..along wid the company, there'll b a list of such site n
links if u search on a search engine like google.. download
them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz
in .exe form, just run it; if done manually
it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a
.inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor..!!
If u r runnin Windows XP, Go to control panel. click on system->hardware->Device Manager n check to see if the sound drivers r installed properly. If the lists shows a yellow exclamation mark on PCI DEVICE, It means u need to install microsoft universal audio articeture drivers first. u can search for it on yahoo or any other searchengine to get the link. download and install microsoft uaa drivers, Uninstall the PCI device from device manager and re-install the audio drivers. I hope it works this way. Thank u
It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.
Had the same problem with more than one Asus Mb's. Wasn't able to turn off the intergrated sound. So when I tried to connect a PCI sound card & installed its drivers, the software wouldn't finish. Windows kept seeing a missing driver from the intergrated sound chip. Asus RMAed the board and replaced it with another.
This may be your problem.
