You need to first find out the model of you sound card by using device manager on your OS (assuming you are using some version of windows) The name of you card will be listed under sound video and game controllers. The I suggest you visit the manufacturers website to find the most recent driver software. Right click on computer and select the properties option. You should see an option to select your computers device manager. This should fix your issue.
If so and even if so, you need to have an audio cable installed connecting the DVD drive to the Sound Card in order to get sound when playing a MUSIC CD or DVD player from that drive. So double check that inside of the PC.
Next, go into the Audio Settings in the Control Panel and make sure sound is not muted.
Update/reinstall audio drivers.
To download them go to the website of the manufacturer, and there should be a link to drivers, or a search bar. If you cant find the driver, just post here. Though then we will have to know your sound card model.
These days they make pretty good sound cards on-board. If your playing lots of games, they may requie certain sound and may not run on your computer.
It all depends on what your using your computer for. If you want the best surround sound you will need a 7.1 Channel Sound card. But if you are happy with your sound card, then why change it! If it ain't broke, why fix it? Depending on your circumstances you may only use your computer, for work, internet and some games. Your inbuilt card would be great. But if you like to have the best of everything, then you would splash out and buy a new sound card with the works and play heaps of games and watch plenty of movies!
To not complicate the matter,can you do a System restore?>>hit Start key>>Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>> then System restore.There you can go to the day that you new it was working and follow prompts from the restore point. Please Rate this!!!!
Hello vatsala, Try downloading and installing the latest sound drive available for your motherboard. Here is the link. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GVSR/ If that doesn’t work, try using another set of speakers to make sure it’s not your speakers that are bad and if that doesn't work, you may have a bad sound card and will need to put in new sound card.
