Audio Controller driver

I have just reinstalled a copy of XP - everything is working fine except the sound.

If i play media player it errors saying the there is no audio device avaliable.

When i look in device manager the audio controller bit has a horrible yellow marker next to it. It suggested to update the driver which it searches for and is unable to find.

Any suggestions how to get this working or will i need to get a new soundcard?

You need to find out wich soundcard is inside your computer. If it is a brand pc or a laptop just repost the problem with correct model (eg: dell optiplex 800, Ibm 600, etc.).
If not you need to open the cabinet and check which serial numbers are printed on your sound card, or on your motherboard if soundcard is integrated with motherboard.

post all numbers and you should get the right driver.

Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

Try reinstalling your audio drivers, or use system restore to undo the update if yo are sure of that.
Reinstalling the proper drivers should generally fix it though.
In case you don't have them anymore, try the manufacturer's website or a driver finder program.

You have to install the audio driver. That's a common thing that if you install a fresh copy of your operating system, meaning you started from scratch. So eventually, some of your system drivers must be reinstalled.

Audio driver:
First download and install the UAA driver from the following link:
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32646.exe

After installing this, download and install the audio driver from the following link:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

This will create a swsetup folder in C drive ("C:\swsetup\sp34200")

Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click Update driver.
3. Select "Install from a list or specific location"
4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"
5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the list.
6. Click Next and then click Have Disk.
7. Click Browse C:\swsetup\sp34200 folder and select the .inf (wis30b2a) file and click open and Continue with the onscreen instructions.
