What make and model - what year was it new?
What is the sound card - external or on board [ already inside the pc ]
Did you plug the speakers in the right area? Be sure the speakers are powered speakers. -
if this still doesn't work - please take some pics of how the sound card shows on the back of the machine showing the colors of the connectors

Hi madhu_susant
Try to identify the missing driver(s) whith a motherboard explorer tool , like Speccy from or Sandra from
Look also in the device manager , click on " display adapters " and double - click on the shown one to update the driver .
You could also try on the motherboard manufacturer's site and look for on board hardware .
It' s not always that easy to find what you are looking for but with a little patience , your issue is always to be fixed .

My advice is to not spend one penny on this computer. Unless you have upgraded it then it has only 256 MB of Ram, a slow Sempron processor, a small 300 watt power supply, small 80 GB hard drive, and it is running Windows XP which is an out of date operating system. Spend your money on a brand new Windows 7 computer and sell this one for scrap. You can get a computer that is 10 times better than this one for around $500.

Having no sound after install window

You will need to contact the manufacturer of your sound card to check the availability of a Windows 7 Sound Driver.
It is probably too new for one to be available yet.
