Sound drivers

the sound card can be an onboard chip, built into the motherboard or a card installed into the mother board and thus more information is needed to assist you. You can get into device manager and delete the sound card driver/ items and then restart and windows could redetect it, or you can get the proper driver package from the motherboard, computer, or sound card manufacturer to reload it. I also can remote into the computer to determine what's wrong and attempt to fix it.

Can you give more info on the computer, motherboard, sound card or manufacturer of system ?

My computer keeps saying there is something wrong with my sound card or audio device does that mean that it is something internal. I've tried the troubleshooting and even tried the control pannel settings.

if you cant hear anything coming out of your computer speakers there is something wrong here what to do
if your computer came with a disk the sound drivers could be on it
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or control
panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound video and game controllers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers
hope this helps

Dear Sir or Madam When I want to play a music on my computer , I get this error: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound...

Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:


Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)

Have no sound

It is the sound card drivers problem. Either they are not installed or wrong drivers are installed. if the sound card drivers were not installed, you can find them on the motherboard CD which u got at the time of purchase of your Computer. Insert the CD into the drive and install the proper Sound Card Drivers for your relevant Operating System.
