No Sound, need help......

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I uninstalled my old sound card and I'm going to send it back as it was faulty. After it was uninstalled, everything seemed to be working fine. However, I opened my computer and started just fooling around with it, trying to learn how everything was put together, plus, I was able to finally fit a IDE Harddrive with the cd-drive. I unplug most of my cables, if not all, and moved a fan to better area for cooling, however, I turned on the system afterward and started to uninstall all my games and accidently uninstalled some Windows Audio Driver thingy, or whatever it was called, and that was when I was getting no more sound.

I reinstalled my old audio drivers, AC'97, just a random search and found them, and still getting no sound. I have a feeling a cord was put in wrong? Cause the PC speaker isn't working either.....

Anyone?

I believe that means that you uninstalled the driver that windows would use

Try and re-install any Audio drivers that are made for you Motherboard (go to the manufactures website of your MOBO and install the drivers that are made for Windows XP SP2)

check the bios and make sure sound is enabled.

Go to device manager and click on your sound card. Click update drivers and allow windows to search online for the newest sound drivers. That should fix the problem.

Thx for the replys so far. It seems that the on board audio controller in the BIOS for Realtek is set to auto......

.....as for the trying to update, going to attempt to update XP to service pack 3 and see what happens. Also, going to try doing optional updates too and see if anything shows up..... thx again, +rep

Ok, a few things I've tried:
  • Tried downloading new up-to-date drivers, nothing worked.
  • Tried using Windows Update, nothing worked.
  • Switched to Service Pack 3, nothing worked.
  • Tried formatting, installed the audio drivers and currently doing windows updates, still no sound and no speaker sound from the computer itself.
  • Tried the headset on a different PC and it works.
  • Tried using the front panel audio ports, still no sounds...

Could I have not plugged a cord in right in the PC while I was playing with it? If a connector was broken, wouldn't the machine not turn on all together?
