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.

I can't install the audio driver. it shows "install Realtek HD audio driver failure".so what I can do now..plz help me...:(

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.

Monitor wont work on pc ..but monitors are good ,tried them on other pc's they work fine pc turns on fans turn on,mouse n keyboard wont work either!!!!

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.

Onboard sound card not working (ASUS A7S333). I had a pci sound card and removed it to go back to the onboard sound.

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.

How do I remove a sound card from the Emachine T2482?

hello, i think thi smodel has an onboard AC97 audio chipset. if my asumption is correct, then you can not remove (physically) the chip set.

if you are adding a new card for whatever reason, you can simply disable the onboard audio by going in to BIOS.

simply restart your PC and start hitting delete key ( assuming thats the key to get into BIOS) and once in the BIOS find area called onboard peripherals and locate onboard audio/sound and disable it.

technically you don't have to disable it to get another card working but to keep things simple i would recommend you do that.

hope this helps
kind regards

Accidentally deleted my sound card...I think it was a Realtek card. I have an emachine T5026. "System restore" didn't work and I can't locate my original CD (the computer is at least 4 yrs. old). Any...

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.

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..

Computer won't come on

Does this computer have on board video? You mention that you added a new video card. Did you remove an old video card?

Do you see anything at all on the monitor at anytime while booting?

If it has onboard video have you checked the BIOS to insure that it is enabled?
