Hi everyone, did complete system restore on my sons
PC. Now have no sound, Cds no sound, no system sounds.
Tried many of the other postings on this site but no joy.
The message says cannot play as there is a problem with sound device. Tried everything I can think of.
XP home and Unimodem half duplex audio device.
Any ideas please.

Try removing, and then reseating the sound card.

Hi rawprawn thanks for the quick response.
The card is part of the motherboard ie integral.

Look in Devices, see if there is a yellow exclamation mark against the sound card - then right-click on it and choose to Update the drivers.

In devices I have Multimedia Audio controller with the yellow flag, I can`t update the driver. It says
drivers non installed code 28.

If you know the Motherboard Manufacturer. go to that site to download the drivers.

This thing is jinxed, now the monitor has packed up, not even the power led comes on.
Will use another monitor in the morning and then get back to the sound issue. Thanks for your replies so
far.

You say: "did complete system restore on my sons PC"

Was that a fresh reinstall using the O/S CD/DVD?
If so did you remember to then install the motherboard and other drivers?
