Lost all sound.

  geordielad307 17:04 05 Sep 2006

Last night I Uninstalled Realtek player as I have never once used it. Having done so I now have no sound from my Windows media player, Nero player, or
Showtime player , although all play DVD's perfectly, albeit with no sound. I have looked at Contol Panel Volume control, but it is now "greyed"-out.
Desperate for help .... PLEASE.

Try reinstalling the driver for your soundcard.

Realtek is part of your AC97 onboard sound system.

It has nothing to do with Real Player.

You obviously have used it because that's why you have no sound now.

The drivers to reinstall it should be on your Motherboard CD.

"Last night I Uninstalled Realtek player"

Do you mean you uninstalled Real Player,if not ,you have uninstalled your onboard sound card.

As Serenius,you will need to reinstall the driver.Maybe through Device Manager and install the driver.

Hope this helps
