If you are obtainig sound form your computer ignore it but if there is no sound that means the driver is no t fully functional or unistalled.Try reinstalling the driver or if you reinstalled it already it may not be the right version for you operating system.Go to the sound card manufacturer website or pc manufacturer website and obtain yourself a copy of the suitable driver.
If your device is new and it came with a CD, insert the CD into the computer and the option to install drivers/software will likely be presented to you within a few seconds. This should fix the problem.
If that doesn't apply to your situation, hit me back with any further details (the name of the device you're trying to get working would be very helpful) you can provide and I'll be able to give you step by step directions for installing the drivers manually.

Hello arthurg7a46 In the Device manager , you can go for a driver update of your sound controller where there is a question mark . Double click and select driver \ driver update and let Windows search on the Internet . Unfortunately , this doesn' t always work and you will need to identify the sound controller to ba able to download the driver manually from the manufacturer's site . Eventually , if you have difficulties in identifying the sound controller , try using a Driver Wizard such as Free Driver Max from http://download.cnet.com/DriverMax/3000-18513_4-10572602.html or purchase some other one like Driver Detective you can easily find with Google . Best regards , fanaudi .
You did not state what os system you are running so i'll assume it's Win XP. Go to > Control Panel > Administative Tools > Computer Management > now on left side of window click on Devise Manager...when the list comes up scrool down to Sound, Video and Game Controllers then click on "+" sign to expand and BINGO!...If any sound (audio) devises listed are accompanied with a yellow question mark...you have a problem. Click on the ones with the question mark and choose install driver. Windows will then search for and install your driver.
The reason for these 2 big question marks is that Windows device drivers for the sound card & modem are not installed. If you don't have the drivers for these 2 cards, let me now the make & model, & I can find them for you.
Try to find updated drivers. Or rollback the old drivers.
Also if you fix this issue and the sound still doesnt work...
try this :
Go to run type services.msc look for Windows Audio under the Services Menu. Right-click it and click 'Start' hope this fixes it! get back to me :]
the only setting in the bios that is for your Graphics card is the VGA setting which needs to be set to AGP first or AGP primary.
items that appear under "other devices" do not have the drivers correctly loaded, The system can Identify them but has no drivers for them to function correctly.
you need to download or install the drivers for these devices.
The audio device may have old drivers which are not suitable for your OS, it would be best to download updated drivers from the mobo manufacturer's website.
hope this helps
