First I would remove the drivers again from the device manager and redetect. Then I would check that you are actually using the correct Sound driver, often a OEM will include a disk with drivers that is not relevant to the actual Hardware. You should know whether the card was installed as an upgrade, so the drivers needed may not be included. I would also try diveragent.com to autodetect the drivers.

You have to install the audio device drivers for the audio device to work. In case you don't have the installation cd here is a link for direct download from the official site. Choose your op. system (win XP, win 7 etc) and proceed to download and run the proper file.

1) Go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Audio tab
2) Check what's under "Sound playback: Default device" and "Sound recording: Default device". It these fields are grey and non-clickable, then most probably the audio card driver is missing or less probably the audio card itself is broken.
3A) If you have an original CD of your computer, motherboard, or audio card, insert the CD and install the driver from it.
3B) Or alternatively insert the CD and go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware > Device Manager, find any unidentified device in the list, or expand the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch, identify the Audio card > Right click > Update driver... > Install the software automatically > Next
3C) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.
P.S. These steps mentioned above are for Windows XP, but will be quite similar on other Windows versions, too.
if you have software motherboard ... just run it step by step install software...

I guess there is problem with drivers my be they are not properly installed.. For this Go to Control Panel ---> System ---> Hardware

In order to check that you have your Audio Driver installed for either your on board or ext card sound. Go to. Control Panel. Click on the System Icon. Then click on Hardware Tab. Then Device Manager. It'll show a list of you hardware spec. Check for Sound Devices. Then look to see if you've possibly a yellow exclamation mark. If you have when you right click with the option for properties it'll show the device isn't working. What i suggest is to. Right Click. Then Un-install. Then restart your computer. The software drivers should be with your operating system already. ( Though may be not though. Could be downloaded if not there ) When your computer restarts. It should display a bubble message saying that it has has found hardware & is installing driver software. When it has installed it should say. Your sound kit is working properly. If it doesn't do this perhaps the driver software arn't with your operating system. You'll need to find the drivers software from the Internet. You'll need the details. Thats given with device manager for the type of hardware spec your computer has. Then it just a matter of doing an Internet search for your driver software. Download this. Do a restart. Your computer shall detect this. Then it should install. Your Good To Go !
