my computer crashed whilst i was recording into it, and when i turned back on the sound wouldnt work. i have tried reinstalling ac97 driver, but the sound still doesnt work. in the volume control tab i only have WAVE, SW SYNTH and CD PLAYER, and i believe im also supposed to have VOLUME CONTROL and LINE IN. Can anybody please help me with this? cheers steve

also i have just realised that whilst playing videos, they only play for a few seconds and then freeze, until you jump to another part of the video and then it will start again for 2 seconds. cheers

Presuming you have Win XP, can you use ststem restore to go back to a time before this happened?

In the Volume Control panel click on Options>Properties.

You can now select whatever input/outputs you need on display for both Playback and Record by ticking the relevant boxes.

What do you use to play videos? Windows Media Player?

also system restore did not help the problem, cheers

You have done Options>Properties and not just Options?

Have you checked, seeing that you had a crash, that onboard sound is still Enabled in the Bios?

You might also have been unfortunate enough to suffer damage to the onboard sound chipset; could be worth trying to borrow a soundcard and seeing if that works (don't forget to Disable onboard sound in the Bios).

where is bios?

When you switch your system on you should get a message after a few seconds to hit Delete (or press a particular F key) to go into Setup.

However, if you are not aware of what you are doing it's best to leave this area alone...:-)

any ideas why videos only work for a few seconds? i couldnt find onboard sound in bios by the way
