It means you need to locate the program that runs your sound driver. If you know what type of sound card you have. Just search for it online and you will probly find a sound driver download that will work for you sound card if anything.

Sound card problem


Did you reinstall the sound card physycally on the main board or did you install new drivers?
You need to check the device manager (start-settings-control panel-system-select " hardware" tab at top, then click on device manager)
If you have your sound card listed in its category (sound, video and game controllers) or listed in the "other" category and it has a yellow ! next to it, you must right click on it and hit uninstall. one of those will cause the computer not to even look for the sound card for install because the computer thinks it's already installed , even if its wrong.
so if you see one of these, expand the + to see the device , then right click on it and select uninstall .
then procede to load the new driver. restart
Regards.

Matshitu uj-850s driver is not working on my laptop. Itis at a code 10


hi there,
do u mean drive ??? cause this CD-RW/DVD-RW COMBO Drive would not need a driver since windows would install it set of generic drivers for this drive.... but here is a little file that would help u out:-
Download this registry fix for missing/not working CD drives: http://aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip

How to Fix a Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error is due to:
  • Missing device driver
  • Malfunctioning device driver
  • Incomplete device driver files
If the device due to which the error has occurred contains the value FailReasonString in its hardware key.

then this string is displayed as an error message. Otherwise, the device displays the following error message:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Most of the time, you can resolve this error by updating the device driver for the faulty device. To update the driver, select the System option from the Control Panel. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Hardware tab, and then select the Device Manager button. Scroll through the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware device. Right-click on this device and then select the Update Driver command. Next, follow the screen instructions to update the driver of the selected device.
