Do you know for sure your speakers are working? Or is Windows saying there's no sound device? Does the Device Manager tree show any problems (! symbol) by sound hardware entries? Has the integrated sound been disabled in the BIOS settings?
Try downloading the sound drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website and reinstall. This often solves the problem.
If the integrated sound has failed, install a PCI sound card if there is an open slot on the board. Or you can also purchase a USB external sound card and plug it into an open USB port, and you don't even need to open the computer. Just be sure to disable the integrated sound in the motherboard BIOS setup.
Thanks for using Fixya! Hope your computer is talking again soon.
ur motherboard has a disk containing the drivers needed for components like the vga card.. sound card (if integrated onto the motherboard), local area network (LAN) etc..to work.. this disk probably came along with ur computer.. unfortunately.. when you formatted th hard drive and reinstalled windows u got rid of all these drivers and they must be re-installed in order for these components to work..
if there is no disk present you can download drivers straight from the manufacturers website by typing in th make and model name of the sound card..or of the motherboard if p.c has a soundcard integrated onto the motherboard) into the address bar (the bar at the top normally..this begins with http://) you can find these details by going to start > all progs > system tools > system information > components > sound.. this will display the name and model etc of th card.. once on the manufacturers website there is usually a link for downloads to follow..
alternatively go to start > control panel > system > hardware > open "device manager" > once open look in the list for any yellow explanation marks anywhere..right click on any item showing this and delete..then restart the pc.. once it has restarted th pc will automatically detect new hardware and look for drivers.. often the best move now would be to rollback the drivers when given the option but this wont work after a disk format because th format clears th hard drive of everything..including updates and drivers so.. if you DO have a disk supplied with your pc carrying the required drivers (most new pc's will have this supplied with several other disks required to install software or applications...... this is far the easiest method of installing drivers
can you teach me how to find my missing computer soundcard , cause i try to find it in internet but still can work it,and course you know in internet to many soundcard driver in there, the correctly i'm don't know my sound card name. thanks for you help, 845GV-M
Look in CD that came with your Computer and find I software related to you sound card or in case it is integrated in your mainboard look in your motherboard CD for the audio drivers
that's the way the software you deleted is called.
Otherwise you can go to the sound device manufacturer website
or mainboard(Motherboard) manufacturer website and look for drivers, try to find the newest version, is better.
Your sound card probably requires a different driver for Vista (it may be too new for the driver CD to include it). Google search it and check the sponsored ads. There are quite a few web sites dedicated to helping you find and download the right drivers for your system. Hope this helps!
