Check that you are using the correct audio drivers for your PC. Eventually you can buy a PCI sound card, which is quite inexpensive, and install it on the motherboard. It can replace the sound card integrated with the motherboard. once the new card is installed the old card must be set on ' do not use this device (disable)' from device manager.

I need instructions on how to reinstall my sound device, I have no sound comeing out of my speaker and it is hooked up and turned on


  1. Bad software settings.
  2. Corrupt or missing sound drivers.
  3. Compatibility issues with the operating system and/or other hardware.
  4. Speaker related issues.
  5. Bad or missing sound card.
Windows XP
  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
  1. Open the Windows Device Manager
  2. Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
  3. Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
  4. Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
  5. If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
  1. Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
  2. Reboot the computer.
  3. As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer.

Playback on audio cd's sounds bad. Sounds scratchy.


I would always install the driver first , especially if they have an updated version since your last install. also might check if there is a direct connect line attches from the back of the cd rom to the soundcard or motherboard. sound newer motherboards handle sound better without these.

It's not your cd-rom but more likely your speakers. Borrow or swap your current speakers that you know work & sound good.
If they sound good on your system. You need new speakers. If the sound is still disorted. Than your sound card can be
defective or the sound out-put jack is not getting a good connection. Without the Pc model number & Mfg's make I can not go any fauther with suggestions.
