Hi All,

How do I find out if the onboard sound card is working? I have no sound. I had an error "yellow question mark" at multimedia audio controller. I did something, tried to download a driver suggested on another posting. It did not download correctly but now I don't have the question mark but I still have no sound. I have speakers pluged in and turned on. When I put a CD into the cd rom or play a program with sound neither works. The cd player works as I installed a program. Here are the results form the belarc analysis- I put the computer together with help from a friend many, many years ago. Thanks in advance.

It was an HP driver that I tried to down load. I will try the one you linked.

Thanks!

So I downloaded that program and still no sound. I saw that the motherboard battery was low so I put in a new one. There are jacks for speakers and a microphone that connect to a yellow box on the motherboard. When I play the cd, no audio device installed.
