Restart your computer and Click on "start", then "control panel". Find and right click on "device manager", open and click on continue. Click on box(right side) of "sound audio and game controllers". Do you see a warning,?, !, or yellow triangle. If so, click on that and follow proceedure. Do you see a hd device in your list? Right click on it and you should see "disable" if you see "enable" click on that and exit. What kind of speakers are you using? Are you using a graphics card or sound card? You may not need the HD sound if not and maybe you need to enable other sound. Do you have other devices in your list. You might want to enable them one at a time and see if that works. If you can't solve your problem give me make and model of your system and what version of windows your running. You can let me know at "add a comment"

How do i fix my hp pavilion g6-1b50us audio drive?

There is a step-by-step procedure for solving the problem at this url:

This solution applies if you are running Windows 7, but may also work with 8 and 8.1 versions. This gives several potential causes for your problem, but the most likely are the first three: the speakers are muted in the audio configuration; the volume for the speakers or the application (more likely since you can hear through headphones) is set too low in the volume mixer configuration; or your speakers are not set as the default playback device (sometimes SPDIF is set as default instead). The others are pretty uncommon, but can happen, so don't give up if none of the first three corrects the problem.

No sounds

Isn't your sound muted? Please check your volume buttons. Please check if your speakers are connected and have power.
if nothing works, you could always try to download some new software from here:

My sound card has been deleted from my computer!

Sounds like the sound card died, it's not unheard of. Plug it into another computer and see if it's recognized.

XP laptop no longer recognizes any USB speakers, and internal speakers dont work. USB speakers do not appear in the audio controls. the only 'device' listed under Sound Playback is SoundMax Digital Audio,...

Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not.
You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem.
You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.

Installing souund to my computer

i need to install a software for my sound card realtek ac,97

No sound from speakers

Hm.. Not entirely sure. Maybe try going to the control panel and hardware and sound (might be under something different if you have XP or earlier, I am looking at my laptop but I have vista, but wherever your sound settings are) and look at the settings and make sure everything is working and all. If you haven't restarted since the problem started, definitely try that. Otherwise, all I can think of is maybe reinstalling the audio driver. On my computer that is called SoundMAX. On yours it is probably different. So that's all I can think of. I'm not sure that any of that will work but those are some of the basic things I would start off with doing if I were having the same problem. If you do reinstall the audio driver, be careful doing it. It's not like it's something that's really likely to mess up your computer or anything but you don't want to like uninstall and not know where to go to reinstall because then you really won't have it. So, yeah. That's all I've got. Hope it helps.

Dell speakers

Chances are that when you deleted Soundmax, you deleted the drivers as well. I am going to assume that you 'deleted' the "Soundmax" entry from your Add/Remove Programs console or chose "Uninstall" from the Soundmax folder in your start menu.

The problem is not your speakers. The problem is the audio hardware. I'm willing to bet that you don't have any drivers installed for your Soundmax audio hardware.

More often than not, when you uninstall the software for your audio hardware, it also removes the drivers for the audio hardware.

I would try re-downloading the drivers for your Soundmax hardware and reinstall them.

Soundmax Drivers:

I am also aware that this Soundmax chip was licensed to a different company by Realtek. (They designed the chip.) You can also try the Realtek AC'97 audio chip drivers. There may be a few differences in the way the software works, though. Here you go:

I myself would recommend the Realtek Drivers. However, I also have an experience with this particular chipset where I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 1 or below and they worked just fine. But if I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 2, the system just reboots itself over and over again unless I use Safe Mode and uninstall the drivers.

Instead of fighting with that issue, however... I just put in a different soundcard and deactivated the onboard audio hardware in the motherboard's BIOS.

Just a heads up on that...

Good luck with this. Let us know what happens if you need more help.
