I have updated drivers tired installing new hardware sometimes I have no playback devices listed under control panel>sounds and audio devices ,but still have sound, but restarting makes the default audio device come back.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Can you please post the make and model number of your computer.

Do you have any idea who your sound card is made by and if its an add-on card what is the model number?

Have you checked your BIOS setup utility for your sound card if it is integrated into the motherboard?

You may get results if you enter your BIOS setup utility and choose the option to load system defaults, there is usually an F key short-cut to perform this in the BIOS, sometimes its the F5 key.

Your BIOS keyboard map usually tells you which keys to press to load system defaults.

Bruce.

it's kinda custom, but motherboard is AMD sempron 2800+ 1.61 GHZ 512 MB RAM and I don 't know how to get to bios is that when you start cthe computer cause F5 doesn't do anything when computer is in windows. I assume the soundcard is built in IDK for sure though and it's called Realtek AC97.

What you have listed as the motherboard is your CPU. The Realtek AC97 is a integrated audio chip on the motherboard.

Without knowing the make of the motherboard, about all I can do is provide you with a link to a site which has most manufacturer BIOS listed along with the key to open it.

If your sound card is Realtek then here is the official web site link for drivers.

Download, install, and run Belarc Advisor.

It will scan your system and create a profile of your system. When the report opens, look for Main Circuit Board
which will tell you what motherboard you have.

Post the info for those helping you. This will be very helpful to them.
