Click on start> AllPrograms>Acessories > System Tools > System Information. Now System Summary is on the top if you are there scroll down to BIOS at this point you should see the type of bios that you are running (Award Bios) or simmilar, then just beyond that you should see the brand and part number of your motherboard. Write down that info, now go down the left list to Componets click on the plus sign, a list of componets will open. About the 3rd ond down is Sound Device click on that. The first thing that should appear on top of the list is the brand and partnumber for your sound. write that also. Now if you have that go to Google and enter the brand and part number of your sound device. You should be able to locate the software to re-program the sound. If there is no sound device listed Google the brand and part number of your motherboard again look for the motherboards programming in there should be programming for Sound. A good place to look for either is www.drivers.com

Sound drivers


the sound card can be an onboard chip, built into the motherboard or a card installed into the mother board and thus more information is needed to assist you. You can get into device manager and delete the sound card driver/ items and then restart and windows could redetect it, or you can get the proper driver package from the motherboard, computer, or sound card manufacturer to reload it. I also can remote into the computer to determine what's wrong and attempt to fix it.

Can you give more info on the computer, motherboard, sound card or manufacturer of system ?

Open the Control panel
Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Verify the installed driver settings
Open the Windows Device Manager
Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
Reboot the computer.
As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer
If you are missing the "Sound, video and game controllers" category in Device Manager, it is likely that the sound card drivers are not installed properly, sound card has been disabled, sound card is bad, or no sound card is available in the computer. First, verify no conflicts or other devices are present in the Device Manager; if these are present it is likely they are the sound card and/or devices causing the sound card not to be detected. Second, verify that the computer has a sound card and/or that the sound card is enabled on the computer.

Lost sound device, after deleting old files we relized we had lost our sound device


you need to go to Control Panel - system - Device Manager. There you will be able to find the drive that runs your 'sound card device'. click on that and it should indicate if this device is working properly or not and have a button to click on for fixing. If that doesnt work, try another simple route and if your computer has this setting....go to 'system restore point' and set it back a few days, or a week. check for sound, then carefully recheck the old files you want to delete. Double check the file you want to delete for it may support your sound card and may not work without certain programs. Hope this helped!!!

Sound Device not working but everything seems to be installed and working


you might want to try going into the bios of your computer (usually pressing delete when your computer first comes on) and looking in there to make sure your sound device is turned on.
