i'm having problem with my SOUND. A few couple of weeks ago, i reboot my computer. From Window Xp Home to Xp Pro sp3. I then found out everything esle on the computer work but NO SOUND.

the problem is. i can play music in Window Media Player but can't hear anything coming from the speaker.
i try mosly everything. check the Volume, un-install, reinstall the Sound Device, download a new copy of SigmaTel Audio off Dell.com. when i first install the copy i download from dell.com, the music or sound will than play for like one time.

for exsample.

I click the music in window Media player, it'll play and the sound will come out of the speaker, but once i stop it and click PLAY again. the song will play but no sound come out of the speaker.

I click on sound and audio devices properties, Under Sound - Program Events - I click on some of the wav. and press play
a error will come up and it say ... Window cannot play the %systemRoot%/media/window Xp error.Wav file. It may be damged or may not be a valid sound file. Replace the file and try again.

Under sound and audio devices properties - Audio, The Sound playback list - SigmaTel Audio, Which mean i know i have a sound device on my computer.

i'm running on a Dell Dimension E310.

Any reply will Help.

Thanks for Reading.

Try replacing the driver again. I'd try this one first
If that doesn't work then try this one
The instructions for installation are on the bottom of both links
