Having problems with sound how could i get a sound card


I am assuming that right now you do not have a sound card (ie your speakers are hooked into the onboard sound on your motherboard). If you'e never installed a sound card, it sounds daunting, but it's actually pretty simple. Here's a link to a youtube video of someone installing a sound card.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp4TDe814WU

You might be able to fix the problem by updating the drivers on your motherboard, without ever installing a new sound card. If the sound has worked in the past, and just stopped, then its more likely a driver problem than the need for a new sound card.

Instlation sound system in widozs xp


It sounds like you are getting no sound. First, do you have the sound drivers loaded for your sound card (many times sound is built into the motherboard).
Check you sound settings in the control panel. Be sure the sound is not muted.
Check the speakers--be sure they are turned on.
Be sure the speakers are plugged into the green jack.

Can not get sound to work


Check the "Device Manager" -> Sound,video and game controllers just to see your sound device is properly installed.
To get the sound you have to install the sound drivers correctly and plug your speakers to the correct sound output. If your sound is HD, you have the install "Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio" drivers first before installing the sound drivers.

Hope it helps.

Low sound


Method 1: Try another sound device loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If possible, plug a different output device into the computer. For example, if you have been using speakers, try a different pair of speakers or a set of headphones to make sure that the problem is not related to the device itself.

Determine whether you can hear sound. If you can hear sound, there is a problem with the original output device and the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, plug the original output device back into the computer and go to method 2.

Method 2: Use the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Windows XP includes a troubleshooting program which could help you resolve your sound issues. Start the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter automatically or manually and then answer each question on-screen in order to try to find a resolution.

Step 1: Start the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If you are already familiar with Windows XP Help and Support Center, click the following link to start the Sound Troubleshooter:

OR

Start Sound Troubleshooter manually by using the following steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Pick a Help Topic, click Fixing a problem.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, click Games, sound, and video problems.
  4. In the topic pane, on the right side, click Sound Troubleshooter.
Step 2: Use the Sound Troubleshooter loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');
  1. Click the option that describes the problem that is occurring, and then click Next.
  2. Repeat step 1 until your problem is resolved or until you have reached the end of the troubleshooting path.

    Note You can click Back at any time to repeat the last step, or you can click Start Over to start the Sound Troubleshooter again.
Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 3.

Method 3: Update your Media Player software loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If the sound problem that you are experiencing occurs when you use a media player such as Microsoft Windows Media Player, try updating your media player software. To obtain the latest version of the Windows Media Player, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx) Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try method 4.

Method 4: Update sound drivers loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Out-of-date sound drivers may cause sound problems. Check whether an updated sound driver is available. You can use Microsoft Update to help you determine your current sound driver and if an update is available. Then contact the sound driver hardware or the computer manufacturer to request an updated sound driver.

To find out whether applicable driver updates are available, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site: http://update.microsoft.com (http://update.microsoft.com) If the sound driver is out of date, follow these steps to find the name and provider of your sound driver:
  1. Click Start and then click Run.
  2. Type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Sound tab.
  4. Under Device, look for Name, and under Driver, look for Provider.
  5. Click Exit.
Contact the manufacturer of the sound driver to request an updated sound driver.

For information about your hardware manufacturer, visit the following Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-us)

Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may
be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem,
see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's
documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound

No sound in ultimate 1.8


I had the same issue - I had system sounds but video/movies and music apps would not play sound.

This resolved it for me. I use OSS (open sound system) This command lets you choose your default sound system, so therefore the apps within Ubuntu know what to use to play sounds. =]

goto a terimal and type

sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base

Choose your sound system - By default for Ubuntu it is ALSA
