No sound on Medion MD8000 PC

  emmybee 18:35 27 Jan 2007

Having lost on-board sound (Realtek AC'97 driver), and consequently disabled it in the BIOS and uninstalled the driver, I have tried four different PCI audio cards, none of which were recognised. Each time the "New Hardware" is detected, and the relevant software installed, only to find I have "No audio device".

Advice, short of buying a new PC, would be welcome!

After loading Sound did you check the Sound Icon in SYS Tray to make sure not Mutted

Could also be Faulty jack plug or Speakers

Suspect that this means under Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices it shows "No audio device".

Can you try the following - saw PC with similar problem last week.

Start Menu, Run..., type in

services.msc and hit ENTER

go down the list to Windows Audio and see if it says STARTED in the 3rd column.

If not right click it and select Start. Wait a few seconds and then check Sounds and Audio Devices again.

If this works then go back in services.msc and right click Windows Audio, Properties and change the Startup Type to Automatic.

Woodchip: there is no Sound Icon in the system tray! And the facility to put one there is greyed out because there's no audio device (even though there is!). Also, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the speakers or the plug.
PaulB2005: Tried that, but Windows Audio is already STARTED.
Surfmonkey: Tried all that, but still no Audio Device!

Thanks, guys, for your advice and willingness to help. It looks as though a new motherboard is the only answer!

This was covered a few weeks ago click here
Whilst not ticked as resolved, with no further postings its presumed advice was followed and problem corrected.

Hence the need to tick resolved once it is,and details what worked, thus helping others.

Many Medions have on board sound which the AC97 is the driver. clearly your system bios has altered possability by installing the PCI cards. try the instructions in the link after first physically removing the the Audio cards you have installed.

By basic principles having two sound sources, One onboard and one PCI could lead to a conflict

Thanks, buteman and Sharpamatt, but I've already been through all that and still have no sound!!

So I'm not closing this thread because it remains unsolved. If I eventually get the solution I'll post it and close off.

If you tried the Vynyl Ac97,Go back into control panel,Sound and audio devices,Audio,And in the drop down bar it should give you the Audio Driver,If not scroll down ,And it should be on there,Choose it as your default Audio device,And see if that works.

Sorry, buteman, but everything in the Audio and Voice windows in Sound and Audio Devices is greyed out. In Hardware, Realtek AC97 is listed as working correctly, but still no sound!
