First we have to determine whether or not you have the required drivers installed in order for the operating system to communicate with your sound playback device. Following is the keyin sequence for Windows XP - The key-ins will differ somewhat for other Windows operating systems:
Click on START
Right Click on MY COMPUTER
Tnen click on PROPERTIES followed by HARDWARE and then DEVICE MANAGER.
Double click on SOUND, VIDEO and GAME CONTROLLERS
Your sound playback device (such as Avance AC 97 Audio) should be listed. And there should NOT be a yellow exclamation mark in the left margin (If there is, this is an indication that the device is not working properly - see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
Double click on your sound playback device.
In the device status box you should see the statement "This device is working properly"
If you get any other messages indicating that drivers are required or need to be updated, see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
If everything look OK, click on the "X" in the upper right corner to close device manager.
If everything was OK in device manager we will now see if the operating systen is sending sound to your playback device.
Click on START
Click on CONTROL PANEL
Select the Classic View (If not already displayed)
Click on SOUNDS AND AUDIO DEVICES
Double Click on AUDIO DEVICES
Click on the AUDIO tab.
In the Sound Playback dialog box your sound device (something like "AC 97 Audio") should be listed. If it is not, click on the pull-down menu and select it if you can..
If it is NOT listed, see CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.
If it is listed, perform the following tests:
Click on the SOUNDS tab
Set the Sound Scheme to WINDOWS DEFAULT
Click on APPLY and OK
In the Program Events dialog box, click on any event that has a speaker Icon to the left of it
Underneath the Program Events dialog box you will see a small box with a triangle inside
If the triangle is black that means that the operating system has recognized your sound playback device (sound card).
Click on the triangle.
You should hear the sound through your speakers (the triangle will change to a rectangle while the sound is playing)
After the sound plays the black triangle will re-appear.
If the triangle is black and changes to a rectangle when you click on it and you DO NOT hear sound through your speakers either your speakers are plugged into the wrong jack or you have a problem with your speakers. Test or replace the speakers.
If the triange is gray that means that the operating system does not recognize your sound playback device (sound card). See CORRECTIVE ACTIONS below.

CORRECTIVE ACTIONS
If the playback device is built into the motherboard, the device may not be enabled in the BIOS. Check your BIOS settings. If your sound device is disabled, enable it and repeat this procedure.
To enter BIOS setup turn on your PC and immeadiately hold down the DEL key. (On some machines it's the F!, F2 or F10 key).
Once in BIOS setup, press the Enter key to select the first display screen, ususally titled "Standard CMOS Features". Navigate through the menus until you locate the setting for your on-board sound playback device. If it is set to "Enable" or "Auto" leave it as-is. If it is set to "Disabled." change the setting to "Enabled" or "Auto".
Follow the on-screen instructins to save yur settings and exit BIOS Setup.
If you do not have built-in sound on your motherboard you will need a sound card installed in an expansion slot on the motherboard. This card may not be present. If there is no sound card, install one and then repeat this procedure.
If you do have a playback device installed and enabled and either you have an error indication, drivers are not installed, or device manager reccommends a driver update, you will have to download drivers from either the motherboard or sound card manufacturer's web site. Also, if the drivers are installed and you no have no error messages, but you do not hear sound when you click the black triangle, you may have a hardware problem on your motherboard or sound card.. At this point, you will require some help from a qualified PC technician.

Hi surrybillgoa

to the best of my knowledge, Intel 965 is not a Motherboard Model. I believe it is an Intel Chipset model which features on various Intel Motherboards. See here:

The Drivers to run most Optical drives are built into most Operating Systems, so additional Drivers are almost never required. Firmware updates can improve the performance of Optical Drives but they can rarely repair serious faults. Your Optical Drive appears to be a discontinued product with archived potential firmware (please read the clear important warnings before downloading and installing any firmware from this site for your drive). See here:

http://www.sony-optiarc.eu/supportservice/downloads/archive/downloadsarchive/dvddrivesdesktoppcs/ad7190s.html

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. You also don't say if you are using the on-board sound or a separate, dedicated, internal or external Audio/Sound Card. Please include information about the type, model and specification of your computer, its Audio Chip/Sound Card and its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

If no Audio Device is showing on your Operating System's desktop, then this is probably a BIOS Settings, Audio Driver or Audio Device Settings problem. Try 2 things first:

Make sure the Audio function in BIOS is 'Enabled' and then save those new BIOS Settings.

To enter BIOS Setup, Press 'F2' or 'Del' during the first POST Screen at Start Up.

Check the status of the Audio Device and the Audio Driver in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the Audio Device and/or its Driver.

AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the preferred Default Playback device > Apply > OK > restart computer.

AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to BOTH the device and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the motherboard's Drivers and utilities CD or from the Intel Driver Download Centre, entering the motherboard's full model number:

If your Operating System is not included in the list of Operating Systems listed on the Intel Support pages for your board, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Drivers exist for that Operating System. If you are committed to both this Motherboard and an unsupported Operating System but all the other Devices and their Drivers are installed and working properly, then consider buying and installing either a basic 5.1 or 7.1, internal PCI Sound Card or an external USB Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. Both are inexpensive. See examples here:

Most probably your Audio drivers are not properly installed or not installed or the "audio device might be faulty" for your system. (Do you see any sound icon at the taskbar?)

Go to link.Select your OS, download & install the XP audio drivers (uninstall any audio drivers, previously install before reinstalling the downloaded drivers from the site) @ http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=112

If you need further help, read the "Support Document" tab at the drivers link page. Read the FAQ "Resolving Sound Issues"


Hope it helps.

if it is a laptop you can get the drivers from the manufacturer's website easy. If it is a home made desktop you can download a driver identification tool or simply open your computer and read the model number off the motherboard. Some computers display this model when you first turn it on. In either case the components or motherboard driver manufacture has the download available on their support site.

No audio device for hp a630n


Please visit this web-page:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=426322

You're looking to download the first driver on the list, the, "Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Update." Once you download it simply opening the downloaded file should install the driver for your sound chipset. If not, read the instructions on the download page for detailed step-by-step instructions on how to properly unpackage and install the drivers.

If installing these driver's doesn't do the trick, let me know. I'll try to help you debug the problem and get the whole issue resolved.

Let me know how it turns out or if I can assist you further.
