I little more info would help.

Computer or Motherboard manufacture?

click here for SIW and it will ID the audio components in your PC.

Get drivers from manufacturer site and download them.

Within device manager, remove the drivers that are there and reboot; if windows finds new hardware when starting up, cancel it.

Run the setup for the drivers you have just downloaded.

As ICF says, more info would be helpful.

In reply to ICF and Diodorus Siculus, I downloaded SIW and installed it. Must confess it is all Greek to me. Here is, however, the info I got on the computer. Can you help me go further?

When starting pc, see if you get a message like

"press DEL to enter setup"

This should take you into the BIOS.

Within here, there should be a listing somewhere for audio; check that it is enabled.

Seems that you have a realtek ALC880 sound component on your MSI motherboard.

OK, I will (on bended knee) humbly go into the BIOS and will let you know. Can not do it now but will do it about 7 pm today and will come back to you; Thanks for your help.
