1 Answer

Sound Ok, i just reformated my computer and reinstaled windows and got all the updates. now, my volume is not working at all. in dxdiag says there are no devices. also when i open volume control a message pops up saying "there is a problem with your sound hardware. To install mixer devices, go to control pannel, click printers and other hardware devices, and then click add hardware." when i do this there are no new software devices to use. *side note. my speakers worked perfectly fine before i reformated* i think i just need to get the computer to recongize my sound card or my monitor, but im not exactly sure how, help is greatly appriciated!

You just need to reinstall the audio drivers for your soundcard.
If you provide the model number for your motherboard I can help you locate them. Installing is very easy after that, Just run a setup program.

The motherboards model number will be printed on the board in failrly large letters and numbers. You may have to move a few things out of the way to find it though.
If your not comfortable opening the side of your computer then download CPU-Z unzip it and install it. It will give you the information needed without having ot open your computer.

    Is this motherboard by chance installed in a HP Desktop case?

    If so, it should have the model number for the computer on the case somewhere.



    These boards are made my Asus, then rebadged to OEM suppliers as something else, in your case, Goldfish.



    If your drivers are correctly installed, then there should be a speaker icon on the task bar, click it and see if it's not muted.

    Chances are it has had Microsoft generic drivers installed and they are not working though.

    The correct driver should be THIS one from the HP website.



    For reference, bookmark THIS page for your drivers etc

    Is it the HP A744 series desktop, that is where HP lead me.



    There is a link at the bottom of the page also (use link 2) with a list of original drivers. HERE



    Are you still running XP, or have you moved to Vista?

No-Sound Problem?

Instructions!

Things You'll Need:

  • Driver and Application Recovery Cd's
  • Updated sound driver software

Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings

Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.

Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, un-check them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary

If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers

Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.

Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."

Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.

Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery Cd's that came with your Windows XP system.

Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

WINDOW MEDIA PLAYAR NO SOUND


***Codec issue If only some of the movies you're playing do not get sound it's likely you have a codec issue. codec downloads.
***Check volume settings Often no sound in the Microsoft Windows Media Player is corrected by adjusting the volume controls at the bottom of the window. Moving the slider from the left to the right will turn up the volume, if all the way to the left the volume is turned all the way down.

***Make sure not muted In addition to the volume slider, make sure the sound icon is not pressed in. This button is the mute button and will mute the sound.

***Sound Driver Drivers for your sound card download this http://www.devicedoctor.com/device-doctor-download.php
***Update / Reinstall the Windows Media Player
If you continue to experience issues, you may want to consider reinstalling and/or updating the Windows Media player on your computer. You can find the latest Windows Media player on your computer by clicking "here".
