Re: cannot uninstall sound card.
You will need to go to the device manager in order to uninstall the sound drivers. Right click on "my computer", then click on properties at the bottom. Open the hardware tab, then click on the box that reads device manager. This is where you need to be in order to uninstall the drivers or sound card. Once in the device manager, you can right click on the audio or sound device and choose uninstall, or you can open it, open the drivers tab, then click on the uninstall drivers box. Try this and let me know.

Locate an installer for you original sound driver. This can be the biggest issue when one accidentally deletes a sound driver. Computers
and sound cards come with driver CDs, but you may not be able to locate
the original CD. If you can't find your driver CD, you will have to
download the old driver from your computer manufacturer's website or
from your sound card manufacturer's website. Use the device manager by
right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties and then selecting
the Hardware tab to look for sound, video and game controllers and to
learn more about your sound device.
the currently installed sound driver before reinstalling the old one to
avoid conflicts. To uninstall the driver, use the same device manager
menu from Step One, select your sound device and click Properties.
There should be an option under properties to uninstall the drivers.
the auto installer on the original drivers. The installer will take you
through several general steps, which will probably only require you to
click Next a few times without changing any settings.
Restart your computer when the driver installer is finished.
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this right click to install driver also click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settingsthere also click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar if his does not fix the problem
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed hope this helps
You say you had previously had audio so this should fix it.
Go to the control panel click on sound and audio devises and check you have not muted it.
If it's not muted right click my computer. Properties. Hardware. Device manager. Check you have no yellow asterisks next to any of the sound,video and game controllers, if you have right click and uninstall. Reboot the system wizard should find new hardware and reinstall the driver correctly.
It's got to be the driver or it's muted the only other thing is the card is faulty and I doubt that as it's built into the motherboard and you would have other problems if that was down.
1. Download the audio driver here. Save to your Desktop (or to any prefered folder).
2. Uninstall the audio driver thru device manager.
To go to Device Manager, click on Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager > Expand the Sound, video and game controllers by clicking on the + symbol > Right click on your sound card > Properties > Driver > Uninstall
3. Install the downloaded driver from the Desktop (or your prefered folder).
What operating sustem are you running? If windows, you most likely haven't loaded the sound card drive. Or if yes. then open" Adjust Audio Properties" by right clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. Choose the tab "Audio". Next select the tab "Volume" and make sure there are no checks in any of the boxes and the master volume slider is about 1/3 way up.
