    make/model of pc?

    Open your device manager (right click "My Computer", properties, hardware, device manager) and look for any yellow question marks (?). If there are, what are they? (Should say sound and multimedia devices.) If there aren't any, check under the Sound devices section and let's see what you've got there.

If you have a pci sound card it should have the model name and number on it, if you know what kind computer you have you can download drivers off the manufacturers website or from driverguide.com if you dont have either of these but have onboard soun the motherboard might say on it what graphics are used if not the motherboard will have model number on it that will tell you everything you can just type it in a search engine and hit search again go to the manufacturer for drivers or driverguide.com to get some of these numbers you have to open up the tower so be careful or get help

Acer aspire says i have no sound device


Hi Leslie,

XP Pro doesn't have its own software for the sound card in your Acer.
This software is available from Acer's website.
Click on the following link to download the sound card software for your PC.:http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Audio/AUDIO_Realtek_5.10.0.5265_Xpx86.zip?acerid=633645769400615248&Step1=Desktop&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire%20T180&OS=X02&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=PA_6
Take note that this is a zip file which means you may need an application called winzip to open the sound card file. Winzip is available by clicking http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm if you cant access your downloaded sound card software.

Once you have installed the sound card software you will have your sound card installed and should hear sounds from a set of multimedia speakers.
Don't hesitate to message me if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Cant play sound it keeps asking for multimedia audio controller when i install audio driver it states rpc Server not found


Go to this link:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=96295&prodNameId=97121&swEnvOID=1098&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=hd-17950-2

and download the latest sound driver. It sounds like you are using the old Compaq RPC software and Compaq was bought out by HP years ago. All driver updates on HP/Compaq systems should be downloaded from HP.COM

I just formatted my computer and now i cant play a music file


You will need to reinstall the driver software for your soundcard. Go to the website for your computer manufacturer and search for your model computer and download and install the audio drivers.

Example sites:

support.dell.com
support.hp.com

Cant install correct sound drivers on compaq 6010us


Go to this page courtesy of HP:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-45392-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=94026

Click on the download only button it will download the file for you. Save it to a location that you will remember and then after the download double-click on the file to install the drivers for your sound card.

Now there is another driver to choose from so if this doesn't work please let me know and I'll walk you thru it but I'm sure this is the one I remember that will work on your model.

No sound and no device found


Go to this location for the audio driver for the acer power 1000:

External Mirror 1

It will come up and allow you to download the file. Save it to a location that you will remember. Its a zip file so you'll have to extract it first and then run the setup.exe file and it should install the sound card drivers you.
