Either use system restore to a previous date, or click start>run, then type 'dxdiag' and then press enter, go to the audio tab then click run test.

This will tell you if your hardware and driver is ok

The joys of downloading from an unsafe source.
The PC should reinstall sound drivers automatically when it boots, if not go to the manufacturers web site and download a fresh sound driver for the sound card.

Sorry but is this a laptop or desktop? you have both in your listing!
One of a couple issues!
1) Sound card went bad.
2) Volume control is set too low?
3) lost the sound card driver -may need to reload the driver.
4) CD drive crashed! - does it

I have a sahara N1356 laptop which I formatted, lost all drivers


Borrow a friend's laptop and download and copy drivers from the Internet to your Sahara as needed. It may be a long process.

Lost sound


you probably dont have the driver, go the start and right click on my computer, go to properties and click on device manager.

look for a yellow triangle, if you have these you have no sound card driver....... go to dell website and click on support.

Hi suddenly my sound is not working in my newly bought laptop model is compaq presario cq 40 newly bought


Try this:

Shut down the laptop, disconnect anything plugged into it, remove the battery and hold down the power switch for 15 seconds (with no power or anything attached to laptop).

Reconnect A/C power and power it back up. See if that works for you.

If not, when you get booted into Window, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore.

Follow the prompts and choose a bold date back to a time prior to when you lost sound. When it reboots, you will probably have sound.

Let me know if you need further help.
