You'll need to install the driver for that particular sound device - Windows doesn't have drivers for every single piece of hardware ever made. (You can probably download it from the site of the sound device manufacturer, or the site of the computer manufacturer.)

My computer just stop to producing sound from speakers even the welcoming window xp sound,


Hi,

The audio driver might have been corrupted. You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with your motherboard.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

I had a virus and i had to wipe everything out on my cpu and start over. I installed windows xp professional, and everythings back up and running but i cant get no sound. It says i have no audio device....


After installing Windows you need to install the Dell's device drivers such as audio driver and any other devices that are no installed. Check Device Manager for any devices that have a yellow ? mark - this indicates uninstalled devices.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

No audio


Hi

Quite likely, drivers for the audio controller is missing/not installed.

You did not give any info on the Operating System you installed and the sound card in question; Onboard or PCI Sound Card. I am assuming you have Windows XP or 2000 and using the builtin/onboard sound controller.

If this is correct, you will need to download and install ADI Onboard Sound Driver (Windows 2000/XP) - http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R94481.EXE

Let me know how you get on
