How can I get the sound back on my computer


Check your headset connection. If you get sound there then check your speakers on another computer or try a different set of speakers on your computer. If you don't get sound out of the headset and your speakers work on another computer and another set of speakers don't work on your computer then it's your soundcard drivers.
If you don't have the drivers on disk go to the manufacturers website i.e. www.hp.com, www.dell.com, or whatever you computer manufacturer is. Go to the support page and select downloads. Download and install your driver and you should have your sound back.
If you don't have an integrated soundcard then download the drivers for your card and if that doesn't work replace your soundcard. Let me know how it goes.

I DONT KNOW THE MODEL OF MY SOUNDCARD DEVICE. PLS HELP ME...


Is the sound built into the motherboard or a separate soundcard?

If it's part of an Asus motherboard, go to http://support.asus.com/
and look for your model there. If not, look at the soundcard for a brand name and get back to me here.

Configuring two soundcards for parallel functioning


a windows computer can only use one sound card for one function

you can use the internal sound card for output
you can use the usb sound card for input / recording.

you can't use both for both.

Start -> control panel -> sounds and audio devices properties
open up audio page

You can have one device selected on Sound playback
You can have one device selected on Sound recording.

you can change which sound card is used for which function on this page. if you want to use the internal sound card set both settings to the internal if you want to use the external change both settings to the external.

No sound card detected even though I can hear CDs from PC


first check that you are having no problems with your soundcard, go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to the soundcard.. If there is then try updating the drivers for it, or uninstalling it by right clicking it and choose uninstall then reboot the computer, the soundcard will be picked up as new hardware and should be installed again. Before you do this though you need to be sure that you have a pci soundcard actually installed and not an onboard chipset soundcard. If you have an onboard soundcard then it may not be good enough for games to be played. A lot of games require a minimum type of soundcard. Check to see what you have. Go to control panel as explained and write down the model number of your soundcard. Then check the minimum requirements for the game you are trying to play.

My laptop has no sound, it says no audio output is installed


Have you had your Soundcard working previously?
Did you recently install/reinstall your Operating system?

It sounds like a missing driver or a faulty soundcard.

To further assist you I need to know What Manufacturer and model your Laptop is and If you know it the manufacturer of your onboard sound chip.

Thanks
Dave

Idont get any sound at all through the speckers


This could be a number of things. The first thing to do is make sure the speakers arent faulty, grab some headphones or whatnot from a discman or ipod and plug em in.

If your using a soundcard/ not onboard sound. Then you need to try all the outlets with the speaker connection. Ive come across a few that are mis labeled. Also if your using a soundcard, you need to install all the drivers for your specific soundcard, and disable your onboard sound.

For onboard sound basically check the volume controls, make sure none of the boxes are muted. Silly i know but it happens.

Most issues can be fixed in the sound and audio part of the control panel, make sure your soundcard or whatnot is the installed option for playback, etc.

The driver that connects the computer sound system is not working and I have no sound


If you can afford a soundcard place this in the pc and disable the onboard soundcard as this onboard soundcard requires updates from the manufatures website plus download the latest updates for motherboard this is the only help I can give on this problem.

best of luck in sorting your sound problems

MY SOUND CARD


Hi, you should have the driver CD for soundcard as it is shipped with the new sound card - if not you must download the driver for the soundcard not for the Chipset of the computer. Look at the soundcard - normal the driver manufacturer and model is shown on the "biggest" chip fixed on the soundcard - donwload the driver as shown on the chip of the soundcard from the manufacturer and install. (ensure you select driver for you operating system)

Hope this help.
Regards
