yes, you can downlaod it through the internet. i can also find the link for you, however i need some information.

Sound problem

maybe you haven't installed the device driver for the sound. if ever you know the brand name of your sound device. download the driver in but you have to sign-up for a free account to download.
in case you don't know the brand name of your sound device. check your motherboard brand and search the internet for the website of your motherboard they have support site where in you can download device drivers.

I did a format to my comp and i lost the drivers for my Inspire T 5900 do you know were to download them?

First, speakers don't have drivers (although one of the names used for a speaker is a driver.) Sound cards have drivers.

Inspire T5900 MF4045 Speakers Do Not Require Drivers/Applications to Work (Non-USB Speakers)

Creative speakers do not need to be installed at all as they can be plugged in to a device and ready to be used straight away.

Desktop speakers are designed to function with most sound cards without the use of any drivers. As such, there are no drivers necessary for the speakers to function as they were designed. The sound card or audio device which the speakers are plugged into may require drivers and/or software to work. Ensure that your speaker is connected to your sound card's audio out and that your sound card is configured properly to output sound. Please contact the sound card manufacturer for driver availability.

My computer problem is no come to sound ,,,,

Make sure your computer has a sound card.

1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.? Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one.
3. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
4. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

Make sure your computer has a sound card.

Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.

Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

No sound

Possible causes.
1. No sound ->means no Audio/Sound Drivers or incorrect drivers installed for your Audio devices ie.(no sound icon on your taskbar?)
2. No sound -> Sound card devices or speakers could be defective.

No mention of Operating Systems ie Windows versions , Linux, Dos...etc... or information of Mainboard brand, name, model -> means difficulties in helping to solve your problems!!!!!

Hope it helps.

I have windows xp bu the sound dont work. i ask a frind aand he said the motherbord dont rconize the shound driver what should i do

First, look at the very bottom of your screen on the task bar where the clock is. There will be several little icons, possibly an arrow next to them on the left. The arrow opens more icons. Look for a little silver round circle.That is the volume button.

If your computer is set to do it, a little box that says "volume" will open if you put your cursor arrow over it. Click on the circle and check to see if your sound is muted. If it is, uncheck the boxes at the bottom that say "Mute."

Shut your computer off. Unplug your speakers and restart your computer, then turn it totally off again. While the power is off, plug in the speakers, then turn back on.

If that doesn't work, go to control panel and click on sounds, speech and audio. The pic has several tabs open at once. Pointers are inserted by me. On the far right, you see the device manager menu talked about below.bb4ac10.jpgYou will see a menu pop up that has a few tabs. On the volume tab, again make sure that mute isn't selected. Also check pic below for what screen looks like in "category view."

On the top of the menu, hit audio tab and look at the sound card. It should list your sound card there. Check to see if your speakers are working and your sound is set for speakers, not head phones.

If all of that checks out, it gets harder from here. If you need help, ask someone. You have to be an administrator to do the following.

Go back to the beginning control panel screen. Choose to see classic view, and double click on the system icon. That opens a new menu. Click on device manager. It opens a new menu.

Look down the list that opens and find sounds, video and other devices. If you click the plus sign next to sounds, a drop down of what is in your 'puter opens.

If you see an exclamation point, something is messed up. A X sign means it is turned off. Look for the sound card name you saw in the beginning of the instructions. click on it, and open.

On the bottom, it says if the device is operating normally. That really just means it is there. Check the driver tab and try to update the driver. Look at the date of the driver. If it is a new driver that came with a recent update, roll the driver back. Sometimes updates are wrong.

If none of that works, you can disable or uninstall (remove) the device so that the hardware updater re-identifies it and reinstalls it properly. This carries some risks, because the sound will not work without the proper driver.

Before you uninstall, go to Microsoft's automatic update page and choose to select updates yourself rather than MS selecting for you. On the left, you will see options for software and hardware that may include new drivers.

As a last resort, choose to uninstall the sound card in the device manager. After you uninstall, shut your computer totally off. Not restart. When you turn your computer back on, the hardware updater should open and identify the sound card and choose a driver for your device automatically.

Before you do this, you should make sure that you know what driver you need, or at the very least, what kind of sound card you have.

That should be listed under start, programs, accessories, system tools, and system information. Most manufacturers will offer drivers on their websites. You can find that by searching on the web. The pic below is the "category view" for display settings in Microsoft XP. Sounds will look very similar.

Thanks for your question, leave comments if you need further clarification.
