Audio system of my laptop is not working. it shows error code 18 when i try to re - install it and shows error code 88780078 when I try to play any track


Hi

Let your computer install the best audio device and detect your sound device.

Right click to MY COMPUTER ICON, choose the Device Manager, then delete all the AUDIO DRIVERS AND DEVICES INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER, then restart your computer.

It will install and configure correctly your sound device and sound driver.

I can't play music., beacause i removed my sound or audio device., how am i going to fix this!??


As you have not mentioned the Make/ Model of the motherboard/ PC, I cannot send you the direct link. But, in case you dont have the drivers - Dont worry, you can download the drivers from the internet for free. It requires a bit of googling or you can search the official support site of the motherboard /PC manufacturer. E.g. www.intel.com, www.hp.com, etc. Search for the model of the Motherboard/ PC you have, select the Operating System (OS) and download the required drivers.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Sound and audio devices


1) Go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Audio tab
2) Check what's under "Sound playback: Default device" and "Sound recording: Default device". It these fields are grey and non-clickable, then most probably the audio card driver is missing or less probably the audio card itself is broken.
3A) If you have an original CD of your computer, motherboard, or audio card, insert the CD and install the driver from it.
3B) Or alternatively insert the CD and go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware > Device Manager, find any unidentified device in the list, or expand the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch, identify the Audio card > Right click > Update driver... > Install the software automatically > Next
3C) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.
P.S. These steps mentioned above are for Windows XP, but will be quite similar on other Windows versions, too.

Audio device shows as corrupted. How can i install a new one?


Right Click on My Computer go to Properties in the Grey box select the Hardware Tab. Click on Device Manager In the Catagory Sound Video and Game Controllers expand the list. Uninstall you sound card. If the drivers are present in the Windows Library then when you reboot you computer it should reinstall your audio controller. If it does not then you will need to reinstall the audio controller from the Disks that came with youe computer. On the off chance that you do not have the disks for your PC you can try to go to the Windows Update site and ther may be a diver there for your PC's audio controll under optional downloads. You will need to pick the Custom Install button rather than the Express Install button on the page.

Below is a site for Windows Updates

No sound device


? mark means no sound driver install or errors in Device Manager. u can check ur mother board cd room or can search ur audio driver in web or below may be ur answer


Question: Where do I locate motherboard sound drivers?
Answer: Users who have motherboards with on-board audio (often with VIA, Realtek, or C-Media chipsets) may have issues with their audio or AC'97 errors in Device Manager. Often this is caused because the operating system has been reinstalled and the motherboard chipset drivers are not installed. To resolve this issue try following the below steps.
Let Windows redetect drivers
If you have not recently reinstalled Microsoft Windows it's possible that your audio drivers are simply corrupt. Open Device Manager and remove all devices under "Sound, video and game controllers" and any "Other devices". Once removed reboot the computer and let Microsoft Windows re-detect the audio drivers.
Motherboard chipset drivers
Reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers will usually resolve this issue. If your computer came with a Motherboard CD, install the chipset drivers from the CD and the sound drivers if also available on the CD.
If you do not have a motherboard CD, obtain the motherboard chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.
Sound card drivers
If after installing the motherboard chipset drivers you continue to have issues install the sound drivers. We suggest you download the sound drivers from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer.
A listing of motherboard manufacturers and their drivers can be found on our motherboard chipset drivers page.

In order to install the HD Audio driver, you have to install the Microsoft HD Driver (Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. that said, here's the XP driver for the sound:
