  • amity1 Jun 19, 2008

    I re-installed Windows XP on my satellite notebook and I now no longer have sound. I thought this may have been due to a driver update and so went to Toshiba's site and downloaded/upgraded all drivers - still no sound when playing a CD or DVD. Checked on computer management - says there is no sound card????????

Hi.. my acer aspire microphone is not working after the reformat cause of the virus.. i could not speak trough my laptop using yahoo messenger.. pleas help.. many thanks


Try to check which default input device is selected by windows, go to you control panel, open Sound and audio devices.

Select the audio tab.

For the sound recording the selected should be realtek hd audio input.

Check it and give me the feedback.

If the device is not installed, try checking the device driver on device manager. Right click on my computer ---> manage --> click on device manager -->  look for sound, video and game controllers --> expand the category and you should be seeing soundmax integrated digital audio below it. If it doesn't appear, go this website to download your driver for the audio --- >
Inform me if this quick fix doesn't work.
