Re: Corrupted Audio Card
Was it corrupted by a power surge? Did you plug the speakers into the audio card jack while they were on and you heard a crackle or pop? If so, power off the machine, unplug it, touch a nearby metal object to ground yourself, open the case, disconnect any wires to the card, remove it from the motherboard and then put it back in. Reverse the steps and then power it back on. It should work.
If it still doesn't....
Go to the manufacturers website and find the support page. Download any necessary drivers for your audio card. Open them and they'll auto-install (usually). If it still doesn't work then try your card on another machine somewhere else to verify if it's fried or not.

Go to this website, scroll down and click the download button at the center. After clicking the download button scroll down again and click the sound and it will show all the available download links. Choose a download server and click it, and it will begin to download. Install the software after downloading, this will update the sound driver of your sound card. If prompted to uninstall just uninstall and restart the computer. Reinstall the driver after restarting the computer then test if there is an audio. Have a nice day.
hi murugan, i am realy happy to help you in this problem but i need some brief details of your system ( what is your os , are you using on board sound card r external sound card ) but if you can you provide to me are i will give you perfect solution or else i will give you some basic normal problem solutions base on sound device.
Step1 : First of all check what is your default audio device setting. For this, open Control Panel > Sounds and audio devices, open Audio tab
See that the Device selected is your sound-card or on-board audio device. It should not be blank or some modem device. Set the Default sound playback and sound recording device correctly from the drop down menu. If your device is not there in this list see the step 2.
Step2: If the step 1 is not successful, it means that your sound device driver software has become either corrupt or has been accidentally un-installed. In such case, install the sound driver from the sound-card/mother-board driver CD. You can also download the latest driver if you don't have the driver CD. After you install the driver, restart your computer, and then check the settings as in step 1 again.
If neither of step not work, its mean your sound card is corrupted , i can give you two option for that
option one : internal sound card , you can buy one and give to your motherboard wight color install the drive you can get back your sound as good as old price range form 6$
option two : external sound card . now usb sound card is available in market u can use them too its very easy to install and use ( but quality will be low) price range form 3$
check the device manager, right click on my computer-click properties - select the hardware tab- click on device manager-
scroll down to where your sound devices are listed:
If there is a yellow ! or ? next to them they are installed incorrectly or corrupted and will need to be reinstalled.
If they are tagged as "other devices" they will need to be uninstalled and then reinstalled.
I have been working on this for months and finally got everything including front audio panel going. First Download the latest realtek audio drivers available from intel's website or go here and download #3 http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2839&OSFullName=Windows%2A+XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go%21. Next goto control panel and add/remove programs then look for realtek audio drivers that have been previously installed. Remove program if one is found. Then go to device manager (right click my computer, go to properties, Then hardware, then device manager. Click on the"+" in front of system devices. Find "microsoft uaa bus driver for high defintion audio". Right click that and select, "disable". Then right click it again and "unintstall" the device. This will allow you to install the audio drivers on your disc, or ones you have downloaded to install without an error message. Once done install your audio drivers and restart your PC and windows should start dectecting your new hardware. An installation wizzard pops up. Install the files needed yourself from a specific location, not a disk. It will ask for location of file name "hdaudbus.sys". That file is in C:/Windows/System32 folder. If it's not there, which it should be, just find and download that one file but it should already be there. I have done all this on xp home ed, sp3. I now have sound, and my front audio panel works. Please let me know if you have any problems by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
