Speakers Not working


I recently had my PC upgraded and a new hard drive installed, now my speakers don't work. I have been told that I need to update the drivers for my motherboard but am struggling to find what I need. The motherboard is ECS M848A Rev:2.1, I can find information on the mother board when I put in the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers information which is SIS PCI IDE controller in google but can not find the respective downloads does anyone have any ideas that may help please.

Many thanks

    The motherboard is ECS M848A Rev:2.1 also I have been told that the speakers do not require any downloads if the drivers are there they will just work.

  • Lila B Apr 26, 2008

    That website is the closest I have got to what I need thanks for that, however when I click to download I get this error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address.

    For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

    That happens on all of them, think it's definately along the right lines though, do you know if there are any other sites?

    Thanks Again it was helpful

  • Can you find the manufacturer name for your audio? if yes then goto the manufacturer's site and see any link like support/downloads..etc. And make a downlaod for your model.
  • Other wise goto your motherboard manufacturer's site, see specification for your model and try to findout the manufacturer's names for audio embeded on your motherboard. The audio driver for your might be avail at the motherboard manufacturer's site.
If still have problem just Ask me....

IMac won't recognize my external speakers

I had the same problem..... turns out that there is a specific order that you need to plug them in. Disconnect your speakers from usb and from power. Then plug in the Power first. Then plug in the usb connection. They should show up in your sound control panel now.

Sound will not come one

Hi there;
You recently replaced your hard drive and now your sound does not work?
If you computer boots I would guess your hard drive is connected correctly.
I would check your sound component connections.
Could be inside the case at the sound card or as simple as you unplugged the transformer to the speakers. Also check your sound software to make sure it's not muted.
Hope this helps

No sound from speakers

Usually you can see the speaker icon found at your task bar right side if the sound driver was installed. If not better re-install your sound drive.

Just re installed windows xp on new hard drive, built-in speakers no longer functioning

Visit, click on drivers and downloads, and then click on the service tag option.... enter the service tag from the bottom side of the laptop... it will then display the list of drivers for that laptop.


Download and install the audio drivers and any other ones that you need.... let me know if that solves it for you. Make sure they are for your laptop model and operating system.
