No Sound After XP Pro Reinstall

  smudger1767 17:11 18 May 2006

Hi there, Ive just done a complete new instalation and put XP Pro + SP2 on newley formated hardrive, Ive installed all the drivers for the mobo, Ive onboard sound C-Media AC97 and Ive no sound. Ive checked the usual things ie updated to the latest drivers, uninstalled, then reinstalled, still no sound. I have still an exclamation in device manager where it says C-Media AC97. Ive also tried Sound and Audio Devices in controll pannel but I cant make any changes but I should. Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi there do you know what model mother board you have, my cusin had the same sound card and had the same problem when he reinstalled xp pro+sp2.
Alson what manufacter is your computer from.
The way i fixed my cusins computer was by going on the manufacters website and scanning the computer and then it gives you a list off all the drivers you need. Where did you get your current drives from?
