I am working on a friends pc who is having sound issues on the pc. All settings look normal for the regular "speaker" settings in the system tray, however in taking a closer look at the device manager - I discovered that the drivers for it weren't fning properly - !!! Anyways to make a long story short - I tried to reinstall the drivers - but after the driver was uninstalled the whole sound card disapeared - and it won't come back - no wizard telling you to intall new device - nothing. WINDOWS ME SHOULD BE BURNED. But not the point - so please give some ideas on how to fix this without the agony of having to go C:> format c....

What is the make and model of the computer?

What type of sound card is it?

First, check all physical connections to make sure everything is plugged in properly -speakers, sound card.

Second, is there devices in device manager that have the ? mark?
You can go in there and update the unknown device with the driver you reinstalled earlier.

Post back.
