Speakers quit working

Under my computer properties under hardware and device manager, the C-Media AC97 Audio Device, there is a yellow circle with a black exclamation point in the middle of it. the speakers on the notebook have completely quit working and you can hear absolutely nothing out of them. i have tried to update the driver, and there is not an update availabe. i have tried to troubleshoot and the troubleshooting guide won't help. i have been told to go to advanced under the sound playback and it won't even allow me to do that. please help me. i really need speakers back! thank you

You can try right clicking in device manager (which it sounds like you're already in) and clicking uninstall. Then right click again and click scan for hardware changes and then try reinstalling the drivers again.

If that doesn't fix it try uninstalling and canceling any attempts at reinstalling the driver. Restart and then try letting windows detect the new device and reinstall drivers.

I do not get any sound from my speakers. When I go to the Sounds and Audio Devices properties there is not Playback device indicated.


Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager

Under the sound properties, is there a yellow exclamation mark next to the audio device. If so, you will probably have to reinstall drivers for that device to make it work again.. If you need help getting those, let me know.

I am not getting any sound


Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Under "sound" devices, is your audio-device correctly installed?
Under "unknown hardware", is there a "multimedia" device?

Are your computer's speakers turned on?
Have you MUTE'd your speakers?
Do your speakers work with some other computer? or with your iPod Touch?

Problem C-Media AC97 Audio device no open?

Hi zlasav, there are a few things that must be checked before checking within the system. Please check your speakers by connecting them onto another system or notebook. (Make sure they function). If you are using windows XP any version, open control panel. Once opened than open the icon, "Sound and Audio Devices". The sound & audio properties window will open. Left click the "Audio tab". Under Default device: it should show something like "AC'97". Than left click the "Voice tab". Under default device: it should show the same, AC'97. If nothing is listed than there is either a problem with your sound device driver or the AC97 may not be enabled in your bios. To check the settings in your bios. Shut down the system. Then power up the system & press the F2 key every two seconds until the bios main menu opens. Please see page 50 in your manual. Turn to page 63 & 64 make sure your, Audio device is set to [Enabled].
Open control panel & open the System icon. System properties window will open. Click once on the hardware tab, than click on the device manager button. Device Manager window will open. Scroll down to, "Sound, video and game controller". Click the "+" sign to the left of Sound, video and game controller. (If it is not all ready opened). There may be a yellow explanation point shown there. If there is, you will need to reinstall the sound driver software. Do not use the Shuttle CD to install the audio software. Left click on this link which will open Shuttle's web site to the driver download site for your MV43N motherboard. http://eu.shuttle.com/archive/en/mv43n_faq.htm#download
Now create a folder on your desktop & name it AC97. Download the driver file named, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB) & save it into the AC97 folder you created. The driver will be compressed & will need to be uncompressed into the AC97 folder. The compression software used by Shuttle is called Winzip. You can download Winzip for free at this site: http://www.download.com/WinZip/3000-2250_4-10003164.html Once Winzip is downloaded, install the program. Than uncompress the file, (Audio Driver for MV43N (2155kB), keeping it in the AC97 folder. Once that is completed it is time to reinstall the audio software from within windows device manager.
Instruction: How to install driver software from within device manager. Use the instructions above to open up device manager again.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find you’re desktop folder AC97 & open it. Left click once on the folder named, Audio so it is high-lighted. Than click OK.
Windows will find the correct driver software & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio devices within the control panel. If this does not fix your sound issue, than the onboard sound chip is defective. The only other option is to buy & add a PCI sound card in to an opened PCI slot on your motherboard.
If you have any questions or trouble just post it here.

Good luck zlasav!
Please take your time.
