if it is so, then you need to install the sound driver of that sound card. it happens because the driver for that sound card is not available on the OS you are using.

Sound card not working


Hi,

did you recently reinstall your OS maybe?
Or it worked and stopped working suddenly?
You can test the sound card as hardware by downloading ubuntu live cd iso, burn it on a blanc disc and boot from it, you should hear sounds at booting. If yes, then it is most probably your windows settings, missing drivers, etc..

Check for whether the Audio Driver is Working .Also check the sound and audio in the control panel (Whether it is muted or not) .Reinstall Driver If the problem persists . Reinstall OS if necessary

Microsoft Windows Sound Card Test There are also several test that can be performed from Windows. Microsoft recommends the following procedure:

"Verify that Windows can play .wav files:

  2. Double-click the Sounds icon.


  3. Under Events, click an event that has a loudspeaker icon next to it.


  4. In the Name text box, be sure that the three-letter file extension is ".wav".


  5. Under Preview, click the Play button. You should hear a sound.

If you don't hear any sounds, or if Windows is not able to play a .wav file, check to see that a sound driver is enabled:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.


  2. Double-click the System icon.


  3. Click the Device Manager tab.


  4. Click the plus sign next to Sound, Video And Game Controllers.


  5. If there is no Sound, Video And Game Controllers entry, or you have no sound card listed under this entry, contact the manufacturer of the computer or sound card and request help reinstalling the sound card drivers.

Audio driver setup for windows xp sp2


The standard audio driver for the sound card is already part of the OS. You don't have to install it. When the OS is installed the driver is installed. If you have un-installed the driver then you can reinstall it again from your windows xp cd.
For any other sound hardware like usb or bluetooh sound the driver comes with the product itself.

I have reinstall the windows xp prof to my hp laptop. wen i play music no sounds. wat should i do?


The reason you dont have any sound is that the sound card on your Laptop needs a driver to work normally again, There is usually a website where you can download the drivers from the manufacturer of your laptop for example : dell, compaq.. just reply with the model of your computer and i can help you find the necessary drivers for the sound.
Cheers !!!

Speakers not working


It may be cause of some problems, at first you should find that what's the source of this problem,so I suggest you some ways:
1. Plug in other speakers to your pc, if it works so the source of problem comes from your speakers and you should fix it, and if it doesn't work, too, it means that your PC and your Sound Card has a problem.
2. If source of problem comes from your PC, be sure that you installed your sound card driver.
3. After you installing sound driver,maybe the problem will terminate! if not, I suggest you reinstall your OS.
Note: You could find your sound card driver by a simple search through Google or Yahoo and find your driver.
Good luck

Question: Where do I locate motherboard sound drivers?
Answer: Users who have motherboards with on-board audio (often with VIA, Realtek, or C-Media chipsets) may have issues with their audio or AC'97 errors in Device Manager. Often this is caused because the operating system has been reinstalled and the motherboard chipset drivers are not installed. To resolve this issue try following the below steps.
Let Windows redetect drivers
If you have not recently reinstalled Microsoft Windows it's possible that your audio drivers are simply corrupt. Open Device Manager and remove all devices under "Sound, video and game controllers" and any "Other devices". Once removed reboot the computer and let Microsoft Windows re-detect the audio drivers.
Motherboard chipset drivers
Reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers will usually resolve this issue. If your computer came with a Motherboard CD, install the chipset drivers from the CD and the sound drivers if also available on the CD.
If you do not have a motherboard CD, obtain the motherboard chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer.
Sound card drivers
If after installing the motherboard chipset drivers you continue to have issues install the sound drivers. We suggest you download the sound drivers from the computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer.
A listing of motherboard manufacturers and their drivers can be found on our motherboard chipset drivers page.

H D Audio Driver fails to install


Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
