No Audio file; no sound


I had a problem with a sound card on a Dell machine. All test showed it was working fine but it still produced no sound. I tried reloading the driver and then tried a newer driver going to the manufacturers web site for support and it still did not work. I did make an observation that some Windows sounds (like a new email) was coming through. I use HMDI for both sound and video so I wondered if by chance the video card (Nividia) could do it all. I removed the sound card but nothing changed. I went into BIOS and found that there was a sound card integrated into the MB. I activated the integrated sound and now all works beautifully and the original sound card sits on my shelf. If you have an integrated sound card make sure it is not ON if you also are using the discrete card and also if you remove your discrete card then turn the integrated on, It worked for me.

Your Device Manager not registering the device is worrisome. Maybe remove the card reboot and then shutdown reinstall the card and reboot and see if it picks it up. Oxide or dust on the pins can be a problem. There are parts cleaner sprays that help, the fumes are strong so make sure you have good ventilation and try not to breathe any more fumes than necessary.

What sound card do I have. How do I find out? How do I know if it's defective or needs updating? I have no sound suddenly. Ive gone through the help menu exhaustively and cannot find out why. When I...


You can go here to download the audio driver you need. I would recommend using the service tag option or just having them detect it remotely (that option is in the same area). Also, you may want to simply run a windows update and see if it picks up any drivers you may be missing or that may have gone corrupt. Please make sure you select custom when doing the updates, so you can see all optional/hardware updates.

Good Luck!

Pop up says no sound device


Check and download the sound card driver from the vendor site or if know the sound card details, search for the respective driver from the internet and install the same will solve your problem.

Note: Real player is only for playing music files, not for sound device purpose.

Revert back for more clarification or assistance, with sound card details, so that i will help you to download the drivers for the same.

SOUND CARD


Hello

Theres no such thing as an "unsafe sound card". You can spend anywhere from $20 all the way up to $300 depending on exactly what you are looking for

Installing a sound card into your computer is easy and takes around 10 minutes. You basically have to unplug your computer , unscrew the side panel , slide off the side panel and then you will see some slots on the mainboard , some of which should be empty. Its then a simple matter of unscrewing the backplate so the outputs on the card can be accessed from the back of your machine and pushing the card firmly into the slot. It can only go one way so theres not much room for failure!

Personally though , ive never really had the need for a sound card. All recent computers have sound built into the motherboard and if all you are doing is listening to music and playing a few games then its generally hard to tell the difference between onboard audio and a sound card. Id only recommend a sound card if you are a serious audio fanatic who does something like sound engineering as a career and is very picky about the level of sound that you get.

Sound quality is also determined by speakers. Bad quality speakers and top notch sound cards will still give bad sound quality!

New Sound Card is not working.


Ted, the first thing you should do is go into your computer's BIOS and disable the built-in sound card. Once you do that, go back to your device manager and if the onboard sound card still appears there remove or disable it. Then reboot and your new sound card should be recognized and you can install drivers and begin using it.
