Try these possible options -
1 check to see if your cable is in the correct plug. usually the green one. stupid I know, but its an option.
2 check into your bios. the system may have disabled the onboard when you put the sound blaster card in.
3 go into your windows sound options and change the playback device to the onboard one. (the sound blaster may still be there)

The laptop does not play any sound. It tells me no audio device has been installed. It has the yellow warning mark in Device Manager. When I try to update the drivers, it runs and tells me I already have...


In the past when you did have sound, if you did, do you remember who the sound software was from? If you look in "device manager" under "sound audio and game controllers", does it show anything? If you have a speaker icon in the lower right of you screen in the taskbar, right click on the icon then on "playback devices", do you see anything? Have you upgraded your Windows recently? Please provide the model number of your laptop and I will look into it for you but, please do the best you can to answer the questions.

No sound (AsRock P4 Combo)


1.
Check the speaker connections - take the plugs out and put them back.
Make sure the speakers get power.
Test the sound with headphones.
If it is a Laptop be sure the speakers are turned on (Usually an Fn function key).

2.
Load a system restore point from a date before the sound problem started.

3.
Has the audio service been started by Windows?
Click Start > Run > type services.msc - then click OK.
In the new window - Scroll down to "Windows Audio", right-click on it and select Properties.
Another new window - set the startup type to Automatic, click Apply and then click Start.

Have a look in "Play control" and any other sound mixer you may have installed to check if the sound is muted.
Go to Control Panel >> Sounds and Audio Devices.
Check to see if your sound card is listed.
If no audio device is detected proceed to step 5.

Be sure the Volume is turned up (at least half way).
The MUTE box should not be checked (go to the advanced window and make sure that nothing is muted).
Select the proper speaker settings under speaker settings advanced tab.
Set the speaker setup settings accordingly.

Is your sound card the default playback device?
Right click the speaker icon next to the clock >> Choose "Adjust Audio Properties".
Click on the Audio tab and select the correct device.
If you make any changes - click Apply, then OK before you close the window.

If you use another type of audio program, please refer to that program's trouble shooter for diagnostics.

Creative Sound Card owners can try this:
Click Start >> Programs >> Creative >> "Sound Card", for example Audigy >> Creative Restore Defaults.


4.
Check to see if the sound card is properly installed in the Device Manager.

Right click My Computer >> Properties >> Hardware Tab >> Device Manager >> in the "View" menu - click "Show hidden devices".

If there are yellow or red "marks" next to the audio, "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" or an unknown device - install drivers (see step 6).

If Windows does not detect an ONBOARD (Integrated) sound card >> Check to see if it is ENABLED in the BIOS (Setup).
If Windows does not detect a PCI sound card (an Added sound card) >> Shut the computer down, disconnect power. Take the sound card out and put it back again - if possible, use another PCI slot.

5.
Install available Windows updates, including DirectX.
Go to Start >> All Programs >> Windows Update.

6.
Installing drivers:

6a. Install the chipset driver first >> Reboot.

6b. If a "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus" is present in Device manager >> install the driver >> Reboot.

6c. Uninstall old sound drivers:
Check in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel for an Audio device driver (i.e. AC97).
Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver (Right click on the device >> uninstall).

Install the sound driver >> Reboot.

The drivers to install can be found on a CD that came with the computer/motherboard/sound card.

Cant get sound card working in Windows XP Pro 64 bit


Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software related to your soundcard.

Go to Device Manager and remove the sound card it is the device that has an exclamation point or question mark.

Turn off your PC and remove the Card. Then turn it back on again and enter the BIOS setup and disable the built in sound card of your motherboard then press F10 and save the changes.

Restart your computer and verify that windows is not going to scan for missing devices. Check the Device Manager again and look for any devices that has an exclamation point or question mark. If there is none. Turn off your computer put the sound card back in and turn it on again. Put in the CD Driver but exit on the autorun let windows detect the card automatically and wait for it to ask for the location of the drivers. Point or browse to the driver location and let the installation finish and click on ok. Your PC may ask for another restart do that turn on your speaker and listen for the boot up sound if your hear it then your card is now working.

No audio for system, just media players????


Disable the onboard audio in the system bios and goto your local box store and buy a sound blaster pci audio card. The onboard sound or NIC is usually the first thing to fail, the only way to fix it is to disable it and replace with an audio card or replace the motherboard.

Compatibility with Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Value


Make sure that the audio is disabled on the bios settings. If it isn't turn it off and reload drivers. You may have two sound cards running on your computer causing the problem.
