I have no sound comming out of my computer. I'm using Windows XP. My speakers are hooked up, using the the correct output. Nothing works, not even headphones. I tried to install a new sound card, using this topic http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/105514/no-multimedia-audio-controller/ but the problem still didn't get fixed. What do I do?

Here's a warning I get from WMP:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

Did you install the drivers for the sound card?
Also it may be helpful to know what sound card you have.

For my C-Media AC97 Audio device, I get this error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I click troubleshoot and it tells me to simply reinstall it. But I don't even know where I got this from. I even tried to update it but nothing came of it.

Another piece of hardware that's not working is the ACYTAHXK IDE Controller. This one's filed under SCSI and RAID Controllers. Not sure what that does.

What do I do? Where do I start?

Firstly the ACYTAHXK IDE Controller sounds like a virtual DVD drive device driver that is installed by Daemon Tools (the driver name is random) do you have Daemon Tools installed?

Also it will be easy to find the download vendor for your driver if you can tell me either:

A) your pc manufacturer/model number or

:thumbsup: if it is a custom build the motherboard manufacturer

Your best bet is to download the latest drivers as Queen-Evie has already implied.
