A computer here has no sound, I reformated thinking a iffy driver could be it though the sound is still not here afterwards. Windows xp recognises no sound and says that there is none when you try and play something. The problem is I don't know what hardware this computer is, the sound is internal on the motherboard though I haven't a clue what sort it is. How would I find this out on the computer? Something you must use 'run' for? I can find little just on 'system' et all.
Is there a way to install drivers manually from the files contained in them? I believe I have the right driver though the setup file always brings up some strange box with a bunch of numbers in it then exits, there are a lot of other files abhout though,
You will need drivers, as said above. To find out the on board sound system, so you know which drivers, belarc advisor, also as suggested, should ID the sound system. then you will know what drivers to get.
If the on board sound is disabled in the bois, i don't know if belarc will detect it, but would guess not. If belarc does not detect any sound system, then you may well have to go into the bois, and, in effect, turn it on.
