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.

How to replace missing cmicnfg.cpl file


This error occurs after trying to uninstall the updated (and overrated) C-Media WDM Audio Driver for onboard sound that appears after upgrading to XP SP2 and/or going to WindowsUpdate. Likely the driver didn't work, so you tried uninstalling the driver and were going to put back the old Realtek AC'97 driver, but couldn't get rid of the updated driver.

To fix: Start, Run, type in "regedit" (no quotes), and delete the cmaudio string from
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This makes it so it will not run on startup and try to find the cpl file that was deleted during the uninstall or not installed correctly by the installer in the first place, whichever your case depending on when you started seeing the error. If your sound was working perfectly before this, you are done. To get your sound working again if it isn't, read on -

While still in the registry editor, click on the top computer icon in the Registry Editor to highlight it (so that it will do a complete search of the registry and not just from your present point forward), do a Find (Ctrl+F) and find and delete all KEYS related to cmaudio and C-Media, not just the string entries, but the KEYS, except for that entry in the Run key I mentioned above, just delete the cmaudio string for that one.

Delete the string "CMCPlus" from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cpls to get rid of the Control Panel icon, and delete the file it points to that resides in C:\Windows\System32.

Download this remove utility from

http://ekiis.com/Freesoft/binary/remove11.zip

and run the file you find in the zip file - it can be ran without extracting it from the zip. Take out the C-Media Audio Driver line.

-- NOTE: This utility is for taking the name out of the Add/Remove Programs section only, and does not remove it from your computer, but it is very useful for issues like this when we are MANUALLY uninstalling a program to take it out of the Programs list and should work in 98/ME/2000/XP.

Delete these files from the C:\Windows\System32 directory (or "System" directory for Win98)

cmirmdrv.exe
cmirmdrv.dll
cmuda.dll

Delete everything you can readily delete in C:\Temp, C:\WINDOWS\prefetch (XP only), C:\WINDOWS\Temp, and C:\Documents and Settings\%YourName%\Local Settings\Temp (2000 and XP only), so that there will not be any files left for it to try to recover the driver from. You will likely have to leave things that start with hsperfdata_ and Perflib_Perfdata_***.dat files if you find them, but should be able to delete most others without changing attributes.

Now open the Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer", hit "Manage", then find Device Manager in the Computer Management console). Right-click the C-Media WDM driver under Sound, video, and game controllers, hit Uninstall. Then right-click the top computer icon listed there with your hostname beside it, hit "Scan for hardware changes". It should install a generic "Multimedia Audio Controller" instead of the "C-Media WDM Audio Driver", though you might see that C-Media Audio for just an instant before it reverts back to a generic driver (if it stays, you'll have to go back through the registry again, delete the system files again, and do a full search of your hard drive for those files so they don't get re-copied again). From here you can download your specific Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver setup.exe file here or use your motherboard's installation CD to re-install and you should have sound again.

good luck!!

Lost sound device, after deleting old files we relized we had lost our sound device


you need to go to Control Panel - system - Device Manager. There you will be able to find the drive that runs your 'sound card device'. click on that and it should indicate if this device is working properly or not and have a button to click on for fixing. If that doesnt work, try another simple route and if your computer has this setting....go to 'system restore point' and set it back a few days, or a week. check for sound, then carefully recheck the old files you want to delete. Double check the file you want to delete for it may support your sound card and may not work without certain programs. Hope this helped!!!

Deleted sound


You need to be more specific on ( tried everything ). You cant just DELETE the sound. By delete the sound you mean no sound works at all?

Im asuming the user deleted the drivers and you need to go to www.support.dell.com and enter the model number in help and support and get the drivers. Re-install them and you should be fine.

Let me know what the situation is in more detail of what all you have done and I wil try and help you out.

Audio configuration problem


Sounds like you took out some drivers or other sound devices. Id recommend doing a sysytem restore from right before you started deleting "stuff". click on the start button, go to accesories, system tools, and down to system restore, click on it. A wizard should ask you to restore from a earlier time, pick the date before you deleted files and that should do it. Next time Id recommend backing up important system files before you start deleting programs and files :)

How is the beeping sound do you hear. Is it a long single beep or two small beeps or something else. Usually the beeping sound is related to a hardware issue. Could be the RAM or any other internal hardware connection that could have loosened. You can check the hardware connections, that might help. Moreover, you did not mention what exactly you would like to delete from your computer. That would help me to help you better.

Cant Speak On Logitech Internet Chat Headset


Check the plugs on the computer. I have this same headset, and when I first gt it I had made the silliest mistake of not turning it on. A friend of mine had a similar problem, but with the sound. What had happened was, he was doing some cleaning up by deleting useless programs. He had seen a file, but htought it was useless, so deleted that. Later, the sound dn't work, and he had realized that program he deleted was the entire sound file. Maybe the same thing happened, and if it did, you may want to try to get a computer technologist to format your computer, which is basically just you load all of your files onto CDs, back-up hard-drives, or on another computer. Then, they will hack into the computer and make it so that it's almost as if it had just came out of the packaging, and it doesn't know your name or anything. After that, you re-load all the data back on.
