Ok, i booted up my computer today, and there is absolutely no sound. Yesterday it was working fine, playing dings, music, videos, bleeps, boops, rings, etc.... but now there's nothing.

I know it's not my speakers, since i have plugged some headphones into the jack and there's no sound coming out of their either....

I've seen other topics that say an infection has caused the loss of sound, or to restore/re-run the sound setup files for the cards. I went to the program files for my sound manager "Avance AV'97" card, but there are no files there....

How would i go about re-running or re-setting-up the sound card?

What is your operating sysem? Do you have a CD with the motherboard drivers?

It figures i would forget to include that....

I'm running Windows XP SP2, and have long lost the system discs. The last time i checked, though, the discs only consisted of windows software and the pre-installed crap. Idk, they may have had sound driver stuff on there, but i don't remember it. Wouldn't matter anyway, lost those a while ago.....

I went to the Avance AC'97 site and downloaded the software, but i can't get it to work.... It makes me wonder if there's something wrong with my sound card...

What kind of computer is this? Have you run Everest to identify the motherboard?

You can get the sound driver from this page. Its an 8MB zipped download. Create a new folder on your C: drive and save it to there. When you unzip it, extract it to there also. Then go to Start>Run and browse to Setup.exe in the folder you just made and run that.

You might want to download all the drivers on that page that pertain to XP and burn them to a CD for future use.
