My computer just stop to producing sound from speakers even the welcoming window xp sound,


Hi,

The audio driver might have been corrupted. You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with your motherboard.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

Hi....!!! Plz help, i have reinstalled my windows xp now it doesn't have sound my computer what should i do?


First question should be, what type of computer is it? However, there are a couple of steps you can take to fix this problem.

First, make sure you have downloaded and installed all the Microsoft Updates available for Windows XP. If your computer is connected to the internet it is quite simple. Click on Start, Click on All programs and there should be a Windows update option listed there.

Second, identify what type of sound system the computer has by going to Start, right click on My Computer, go to manage which should bring up the Computer Management window. Then click on Device manager and look for the devices with a yellow triangle. Those are the ones that need updated drivers. The windows update takes care of most of those but you may need to find specific drivers this way.

No sound after windows XP installation + realtek installation


check the series, is it really require realtek? because the driver doesn't depends on the windows XP, but the type, model and series of motherboard or chipset brand.... anyway, realtek doesnt written on the device manager, check to your control panel - sound and audio device, is all enabled?or does any volume elements are muted..

I reformat my desktop computer with windows xp svc pack 2 . the problem have no sound . the motherboard is asustek model p4pe-xte .kindly give me solution


Hi,
If you have formatted your computer then the problem might be because the drivers for sound are not yet installed.
Please install the sound drivers and that should take care of the issue.
Right click on "My computer" --> Properties --> Hardware tab --> Device Manager
Under device manager, check the sound devices.. there might be a red cross (X) or Question mark (?) or a exclamation mark (!) indicating problem with the drivers .. just right click on the device and select update drivers and that should take care of it or if you have a sound driver CD/DVD, insert the same in the optical drive and install.

Let me know if that helps.

Regards,
Srinivas

NO SOUNDS...


Here is a link to the Windows Xp audio drivers to try for your motherboard/audio:

http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/258452/powerspec-v201-realtek-audio-sound-driver-5.10.0.5288-windows-xp-free-download.html

You need to click the link on this webpage near bottom to go to download. Let me know if this does the trick. It definitely sounds like an XP issue.

Re-install window xp on laptop and the sound device is missing


You'll need to install the driver for that particular sound device - Windows doesn't have drivers for every single piece of hardware ever made. (You can probably download it from the site of the sound device manufacturer, or the site of the computer manufacturer.)

My computer is telling me i have a counterfit copy of windows XP. It is also telling me i have problems with my sound device and graphics/video card can you help me please.


If the Windows XP is from a different computer that has been registered with Mircosoft, it will read as conterfit - Windows XP is setup for one licence per computer. If that computer that XP was on is no longer, you might be able to call Microsoft and tell them that, and get them to validate that copy for you. As for your Sound and Graphics, it sounds like you don't have the correct drivers for them, each computer is different with different drivers needed for each interface. You will have to have the make and model for each device and find the drivers for them.
