Sound card drivers

  Dazza99 20:17 10 Apr 2008


I have had to reinstall windows on my pc and now i have no sound.

It is telling me the drivers are missing but it's an old pc and i do not have the disk with the drivers anymore. Any suggestions or advice on how to get this fixed would be greatly received.

Do you have a Sound card or is your sound built-in to mobo?

If a card, go to makers website to download the drivers.

If on-board go to Motherboard makers website to download the drivers.

Do you know the model of the soundcard? It should appear in your hardware list. Mine is Creative, and their website lets you download drivers. Try your soundcard website for driver downloads.

Hmmm, just checked the system information and it is not showing any sound devices.

Or, check Sounds and Audio Devices in Control Panel.

It's saying no audio devices in there too

In my link above (SIW) click on Motherboard in left-hand column, to see your Motherboard model number. Make a note of this and post back here. We will try to find audio drivers for it.
