Re: sound card
You will need the make and model of your computer. Go to the website of the company that manufactured your computer, support section, downloads. Choose your product and search for the audio driver for your system. Sownload and install. If you give me the make and model I will find the webpage where you can do this from and provide a link.

Sounds like a problem with your video adapter. Do you have an onboard video card, that is, one that is part of the motherboard?
If so, you can install a video card and the PC should recognize it on bootup. If you have a card, you can replace your existing video card with another. If the PC is running OK otherwise, that should fix it.
It is the video card!
So, when you plug the monitor in to the rear of the eMachine case, do you connect it in the aread where the keyboard mouse and USB and sound conntors are OR do you connect to the area when all the expansion slot covers are?
If you answered YES to the first part of the question, then the video signal comes from an 'integrated' video card that is part of the mainboard. This is bad. Contact eMachines in order todetermine if the system will allow a video card to be installed in an expansion slot...
If the second part of the quetion is YES, this is better. You can replace the video card andprobably be OK. Get you teenager to open up the case and pull out the video card. You need a new one but they come in multiple 'types' so you need some to have look at it and sell you another compatible one.
You will need to take the cover off the computer to do this.
If your ok with that, grab a flash light, take a look the the sound
card ,( the card with 3 smalll jacks, on back side of pc).
write down brand and model number.
then just google search for brand (ex:realtek) most brands have website where you can get download the drivers.
Here are a couple steps you can do to verify something didn't come on correctly. - Verify the monitor cable is connected tightly to the monitor and PC. - Verify the power cable is plugged in.
If both of these check out is there a little LED light on your monitor that is on? If not swap it out with another monitor and see if a different one works. If so we have a bad monitor. If both do not work you may have a video card issue. Most EMachines come with a onboard video card which is bad news. If you have a onboard video card you will have to verify the warrantly though Emachine and get it fixed. Good luck and I hope things go well.
Hi, I'm sorry mate, but you're going to have to provide a bit more information, if you want me to be able to help you. Operating System? No audio from any program? The sound card driver? How did you delete it? What sound card are you using? Do you see any 'Unknown Devices' in Device Manager? Are your speakers plugged into the Onboard sound or the sound card? Have you checked Volume Control/Mixer?
Post some details, and I'll try to advise you as best I can..
Make sure that your sound is not muted. There should be a little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. If it has a red line through it, it may be muted. Double click it to bring up the properties and unmute it.
If it is not muted, I would suggest reinstalling the sound drivers. The steps to do this will differ based on the model of your computer. For the most part though, you can find this info on e-machines support site.
If that still does not work, I would guess it would be your sound card or onboard sound depending on your machine.
SAMMY44,I have the same computer,and the same problem...we need to find the right AC-97 codecs for this type of computer...I found this out by typing the motherboard number on google..Its a real pain in the but to find the codecs for the onboard sound card...your best bet is to buy a pci slotted sound card,or other wise,,you can be like me,,and try try to know your computer on the inside.and try to find the codecs yourself that way if you ever run into this problem again,,you'll know what to do!!!
