Did you uninstall the drivers or simply go into Device Manager and delete them? BTW, it'd help if you provided some info on your computer (i.e. is it built by a mfgr, and if so which one, and what model, etc).

OK, what did you uninstall? And, do you have the driver and program discs that originally came with the computer? If so, reinstall the sound drivers.

BTW, it might (hint) help if you provided some info on your computer

Is this a custom built computer or retail (HP, Gateway, etc). If retail, please let us know the make and model.

find the driver on the internet.
have a look on the sound card manufacturers website to see if you can find the driver then install it and hopefully the problem should be solved.

To all whom it may concern, here is a copy of an email I posted to 2management " just now. it may be helpful to some of you re having accidentally deleted your sound driver.

As it happened I discovered, at the same time, that I had a disk which came with my PC (Windows XP) which was labelled Intel Express Installer CD. It has a list which included SoundMAX 4 XL. I popped it on and clicked "update driver", as above.

My message is that many of us don't realise we have the disk in our set-up pack that came with the computer. Usually we have these disks hidden away somewhere and long forgotten. I just happened to find mine at the same time as I read Jedi's advice re going into "device manager" and taking it from there. The two - Jedi's advice and the disk - combined perfectly and worked like a dream. Hope this helps.

      ps. i have used system restore doesnt work




    the following method is what i would try to do...

    go to contorl panel > system > hardware tab > device manager....look under sound, video and game controller

    if uninstall by right clicking any thing that title with Audio...

    once you done that...reboot your system and let windows find it again and it will install the driver for you....

    if the above method doesn't work then you would have to go to the manufactor website of your audio card and download the driver for it.

    let us know how it going for you

i dont know what happened to my sound. Where is the control panel?

Under the "Start" button. Click the Start button, and on the right hand pane, you'll see "Control Panel".
