You do need the driver - make sure it's for the right operating system. My original Acerpower was Windows XP, upgraded to Vista. Acer supplied the CD with updated drivers for Vista.

In order to get sound, you will just need to sound driver. The other drivers are for other things.

Pop open the case, and see what brand of motherboard you have. If it's MSI, you're in luck. Just do a google search for MSI live update, and it will download a utility, scan the PC, and then suggest the driver download.

If it's not an MSI board, just go to the manufacturers website, and do a search for audio drivers. It may want the model number of hte board which you can see, briefly when you switch on the PC. Its usually on the very first screen, will be white writing, on black background.

What should i do to get my sound device and controller?


Hi riteshscorpi,


Since you have a multimedia audio controller or Sound Card installed to your motherboard, reboot your PC and enter the CMOS/BIOS setup and disable the Onboard Audio.
Save your new settings.
The PC should immediately detect your Sound Card and ask for driver.
Install the Sound Card driver completely and reboot your PC.
Finally, configure the Audio properties to your desired adjustments.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.

Dell Inspiron 710m PC Notebook Problem


Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.


Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience.
Thank You.

Somehow you must have either deleted you sound drivers or disabled them. you can start by looking in you control panel-sytem-hardware-device manager on the list should be something about multimedia audio controllers if there is a yellow arrow next to that then you must have removed the drivers and thus will need to download them from the manufacturers web site.
