Sound drivers


It sounds like it has been turned off in your windows setting. If this is the case it is an easy fix, Right click My Computer, left click properties, left click the hardware tab, left click device manager, scroll down to sound,video and game controllers and left click on + to open the drop down menu, Any devices that have a little red x on it right click on it an enable device or hardware after re-enabling everything restart your computer and this should fix it, If this does not fix the problem check that your audio device has not been switched off inadvertently in Bios. If your audio device is still active within BIOS it is most likely that the sound card has failed or needs the drivers re-installed. I hope this helps.

I have a new reformat pc all installer sofware are working properly but soundcard installer is not working on my computer. hoe can i fix tihs problem, and how to fix this easely? thank you so much god...


Well, try this.
Ensure speakers are connected to the correct port. Usually the green one on your sound card. Then --
Open Control Panel, Device Manager.
Expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers
Right Click your audio device and select Properties.
Does it say, THIS DEVICE IS WORKING PROPERLY in the Device Status box? If not,
Click the Driver Tab and select Update Driver.
If yes, Go to Device Manager, Sound
On the Playback Tab, is there an Audio Device listed and selected? Is it the correct one?
If yes, select the Sounds Tab. Select a Sound Scheme.
You should now have sound. If not, recheck your connections. If all is well, replace your sound card.

My sound is not working its been turn off and I can't fix it. The icon at the bottom of screen is showing an x on sound icon when I try to fix it it say no sound device on computer.


You need to reinstall your sound card drivers. This software driver is available in your CD installer shipped with your laptop. Try to look for it and install it and see if your laptop will have sound.

Also, before trying to reinstall your sound driver, it is also logical if you could check if it is just "disabled" in the device manager. If you can enable it, it should fix your problem the easiest way.

  1. Right click on your "My Computer" icon on your desktop and click "Properties"
  2. Click on the Hardware Tab
  3. Click the "Device Manager" button.
  4. On the "Device Manager" window, click on the plus "+" sign near "Sound, video and game controllers".
  5. Make sure that NO sound device is disabled. If there is, ENABLE it. (Click it to select then click the "enable" button above.

No audio device found on computer


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

My Gateway laptop says my sound device is working properly, but the sound only works if headphones or speakers are plugged into the jack. how do i fix this?


It sound like your headphone jack is the default sound device. Go to control panel > sounds > look at the devices listed. Click on the speakers that have a device connected to them. You may have two selections for speakers, but one may be tied to a sound device and the other to headphones. Highlight the sound device and click on make this device the default sound device and hit apply.
