colour, sound not working.

  Nodnyl1987 16:13 12 Jun 2005

Having just re-installed Windows ME on my computer, the sound is not working, and in Display, the colour settings will not go above "16 colours", anybody got any ideas?

You need to install the drivers for your sound card and graphics card.

Did you get installation software when you bought the PC? If not you will have to open the case and determine the make and model of the graphics and sound card. With this information you should be able to search and download the driver software from the internet.

I had exactly this prob with a family PC. In the end we found an installation CD that came for the mobo, ran this & Bingo! everything worked fine. Until then hours of searching for & installing drivers failed miserably. Search through all the CDs you can find!

download this utility and run it. It will tell you which sound and graphics adaptor you have.
Then post them back to the forum.

I downloaded them, but when I open them, it asks me to run it with a program, which one should I use?
