Question about Computers & Internet
Since the exact specifications on your machine are not listed, I would suggest trying Windows Update first. To do this, open Internet Explore and click Tools then Windows Update.
Once the browser opens the site, you should be prompted with a choice of Express or Custom. choose Custom. After the site scans your machine for updates, you will have a list of critical, software, and hardware updates in the left margin of the page. You can click on each section to see what updates are available in each section. You should find the cmedia driver software.
To select the updates you want to install, just make sure that each update that you want has a check in it. After that, you should see a link at the top of the page that says "Review and install updates" or just "install updates" depending on your version of Windows Update.
The process should begin downloading and installing all selected updates. When its complete, you should be prompted to restart the machine. After it restarts the audio should be back.
If the Windows Update process doesn't correct the issue then you will need to manually install the drivers from the site below.
To do this you will need to know whether or not your sound card is onboard or PCI. If it is onboard the connectors will be on the back on the tower close you where the keyboard, mouse, lan connectors are. If its PCI, it will be down lower on the tower in a horizontal slot. If you are unsure about the type and model, you can refer to your manual for the pc.
