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.

Open the case and remove the video card and reseat it. If that doesn't work, you need a new video card.
The motherboard doesn't beep for standalone video cards. If the motherboard has onboard video you can try and getting into the bios by tapping F2, F10, or Delete at boot up. If the onboard VGA video works, you can select onboard video until you can replace the video card.
Hello Im guessing your using a sound card? Not onboard sound.You need to disable your motherboard sound or onboard sound in the system bios. Hit the delete key while booting up or the f 12 key. Once your at the main bios screen find the audio or system audio and disable it.Then it save and exit.Pc will reboot..once its started you should be able to install your sound card drivers.
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.
You have to refresh your system by deleting the old sound card driver in the control panel or add/remove programs . Then restart the pc to detect the old onboard sound card driver. Then install the onboard sound card driver using the supported motherboard cd driver.
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.
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..
