Go back into your device manager. Rught click on your sound card or sound device and say uninstall. After it is uninstalled, don't close device manager. Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.

Check your audio cable, especially near jacks. Check power cable. Try to install latest audio drivers. Choose the correct audio output device in Windows.

check your speaker first..
in your control panel>sound and audio device driver.
or in the leftside of the sidebar, if you can see the speaker icon there click it, and make sure that it is not in mute.

Or maybe your Sound Device was broken.. update your sound device driver
or install your sound driver that is compatible with your motherboard..

Or if your sound device is built in, and not functioning
You need to install a sound card in your motherboard.. it works

After installing windows xp i lost the sound driver


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

H sir raheel !

First, try to un-install the driver of your sound card and install the most updated version of it. You will be able to find it in the manufacturer web page.

Second thing you should try, is to connect a different set of speakers, to eliminate the possibility that the problem is with the speakers.

Best of luck,

My speakers r totally fine bt still cann't hear any voice.must b driver problem.what shuld i do????


There are some basic thisngs you can do:
Go to Control panel
Double Click on Sounds and Audio Devices
Make sure there is no check mark in the mute section where there is a volume adjustment for your speakers.

Also ensure that your speaker volume is up to an appropriate level.

If you look for the speaker icon beside the clock and double click on the icon it should bring up a sound tool bar with many sliders. Maker sure they are all at a volume that you would be able to hear audio. Also check to ensure that there are no check marks in the mute section of each catagorie.

Having done these steps if the issue is not resolved it could be a driver or the hardware.

Volume icon


The first thing to try is go to Control panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. On the Volume tab, put a check mark on the box that says Place volume icon in the taskbar. If the check mark is already there, then its possible that your audio driver is not installed correctly. In this case, reinstall audio driver, make sure you have the right driver for your audio device. Download from manufacturers web site if necessary. Good luck.

Sound


first try using windows system restore, which makes windows appear like it did before your problem. do this sequence: start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system restore. run it and look for a calendar date before your problem. If you had system restore turned off, the solution may be long and painful and I simply do not have enough info to get you started in this case, other than to attempt a re-installation of windows XP.
