How to i instal sound drive for my pc?


Hello

1. Power on your computer. Ensure that there is a sound device installed on your computer. You can locate your sound device by right clicking on "My Computer." Click "Properties." Select "Device Manager." Click on "Sound." Your sound device should be listed. If there is no sound device listed, you will have to purchase and install a sound device before proceeding.

2. Insert the CD or floppy disk that contains the drivers for your sound device into your computer's CD-ROM or floppy disk drive. If you do not have the CD or floppy disk that contains the sound device drivers, there are websites such as Driver Guide and NoDevice that will allow you to download the drivers online for free.

3. Click on "Install Drivers." The sound device drivers will then be installed onto your computer. It may be necessary to restart your computer once the installation is complete.

4. Open your media player and play an audio file to ensure that your sound device drivers were installed successfully.

THANK YOU

No sound . After installation of Internet sound "disappeared". No "local" measures worked ("frozen" adjustments on Sound and Volume). Were told that the problem might be in hardware (drive C-?, not sure)....


Open the Device Manager by pressing the "Windows logo key+R key" simultaneously and typing devmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box and clicking OK.

Next, click on the plus sign next to the "sound, video and game controllers" and check if sound device is listed. If the sound device is listed then check if there is an exclamation mark visible beside the audio device.

If an exclamation mark is visible beside the sound device then right click on it and click Uninstall. After uninstalling the sound device, restart the Computer for the changes to take effect. After restarting the Computer, download the audio driver from the manufacturer site and install it into the Computer.

The sound will start working normally in the Computer.

Sound is not coming in my computer


go into the control panel and into the sound manager,(start,control panel, sound and other audio devices) then check all the volumes are up and not muted.
If that fails, go into device manager, expand the device tree and right click on the audio device, click properties and check the driver is installed, and if necessary update the driver or roll back the driver.

Sound is now unavailable


Please try to check your audio by right click (mouse) My Computer icon (on the desktop screen) > click Properties > select Hardware tab above > click Device Manager tab > click +Sound, Video & Game Controllers > double click your selected Audio Controller device- wherein you can see if the device status is working properly as well as if the Device Usage is Enabled, if not click Troubleshoot tab.

Or you will have to reinstall the sound driver. best regards

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might...


You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
  • Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that might be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update, or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • The selected sound device does not support Secure Audio Path (SAP). If you have multiple sound devices installed on your computer, try using a different one.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device (such as a sound card), and then try to play the file again. If you can't install a sound device in your computer, you might be able to resolve the problem by attaching USB-based headphones or USB-based speakers to your computer instead.

Sound driver


Missing or lost sound in Windows 95 / 98 / ME / 2K / XP.
Cause:This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. Bad software settings.
  2. Corrupt or missing sound drivers.
  3. Compatibility issues with the operating system and/or other hardware.
  4. Speaker related issues.
  5. Bad or missing sound card.
Solution:Verify software volume control settings
First verify you see a small sound icon sound3.gif in the systray (generally at the bottom right hand corner of your screen). If this icon is missing follow the below section.
Windows XP
  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
verify the installed driver settings
  1. Open the Windows Device Manager
  2. Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
  3. Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
  4. Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
  5. If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
Conflicts section
If conflicts exists with your sound card and/or other devices installed in your computer it is likely that either the drivers are not properly installed for that device and/or the sound card and/or other devices are conflicting. If you open the properties of the device that is conflicting and view the properties, additional details about the conflict can be found. Additional information about error codes as well as help with Device Manager can be found on our Device Manager section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
  1. Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
  2. Reboot the computer.
  3. As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer.
Other devices section
If other devices are listed, it is possible that these other devices could be the sound card or other devices conflicting with the sound card. If any other devices are listed it is recommended you remove those devices, reboot the computer and let Windows redetect the devices.
If this does not work, attempt to determine which device is not being detected and resolve that issue first.
Missing sound card section.
If you are missing the "Sound, video and game controllers" category in Device Manager, it is likely that the sound card drivers are not installed properly, sound card has been disabled, sound card is bad, or no sound card is available in the computer. First, verify no conflicts or other devices are present in the Device Manager; if these are present it is likely they are the sound card and/or devices causing the sound card not to be detected. Second, verify that the computer has a sound card and/or that the sound card is enabled on the computer.
If this is an on-board sound card you can verify that it is enabled in BIOS setup. Additional information on entering the BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
If you have no adapters and/or cannot click the down arrow to select the correct adapter, close out of this Window. In Control Panel double-click the System icon / click the Device Manager tab within Device Manager and ensure there are no yellow ! or red X.
If you have either of these on any of your sound devices, attempt to remove everything under Sound Video game controllers and reboot the computer. If after rebooting the computer you still have the same conflicts, double-click on the conflicting device and refer to our Device Manager error code section giving you additional information on the error code you are experiencing.
Verify speaker connections
Verify the speakers settings and speakers are not at fault by running through speaker troubleshooting steps in document CH000034.
Sound card drivers
If you have followed the above recommendations and you are still unable to get the sound card to work, download and install the latest sound card drivers from the computer or sound card manufacturer. A listing of sound card drivers can be found on our sound card driver page.
