I have installed two different (working) soundcards in my Compaq Evo machine under XP. The joystick port works OK, but I can get no sound.Under 'Devices' all drivers seem to work OK, and there are no obvious conflicts. I have disabled the on-board soundcard, and the Setup BIOS seems to recognise the new card.Changing the IRQ through 5, 10,11 makes no difference. I get an error from Windows Player when trying to play a music CD:"0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file". Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Properties reports "No audio device"Following a web search, I removed the line "ExcludeFromSelect=*" from machine.inf - but no difference.My children refuse to come home, wife won't sleep with me, and the dog is cowering in the corner. The solution could change my life...Please can anyone help? Two respected experts have investigated and been baffled.Many thanksPhilip
2 answers, sound is faulty or you have not installed the correct drivers.
what make of soundcard?did you disable any onboard sound via device manager(select it/properties/do not use this device(disable)then restart and enter the bios and disable it here before installing the new soundcard?if you have done the above,have you installed the drivers for it?also check:click start/run type dxdiag and click ok then click the general tab and look at what version of direct x you have.next click the sound tab and run the tests.do you hear sounds and any errors listed?
Why two sound cards? They seem to be in conflict with each other.
Sorry if I mislead anyone - I meant I'd installed two different cards at different times - not together!Both cards have been tested under Win98Se, and workDevices Manager reports "working properly, but have not been started"...Card1 = Trust 514Dx 5.1 (Soundblaster conmpatible)Card2 = Muse LT 4.0Dxdiag reports: version 9.0"no soundcard found" - (not what Windows tells me...)All audio options in Control Panel are greyed outThanks for your interestPhilip
Sorry - my post ommitted:Card 2 = Muse Lt 4.0Philip

Re Sounds and Audio Devices from CP - is nothing listed under the Hardware tab?
Have you tried diagnostic software like AIDA, tihs should give you some more details, such as devices windows is aware of and which the system is aware of. Sometimes gives you troublshooting advice as well.
StuartLiAll options (volume, Audio, Voice) are greyed out, telling me "no audio device"
