i'm not very lucky with computer...
i had a re-format and now i can't hear my music. the only thing i can hear is a sound like beep and that's it.

i tried to go dxdiag and i found nothing under sound tab
i went to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Information > Components and i also found nothing under Sound Device

i read that one has to install the driver but the problem is i can't find the cd (well to be honest, i actually don't remember if i received a cd several years ago or not...)

how can i fix the problem?

please help solve this problem. i feel like deaf if i don't hear music...

I believe your audio driver has not been installed...
could you provide more information about your computer specs???

From one of your previous topics I see that you have a Intel D845PESV motherboard.

The Intel support site has a download to automatically detect and update drivers and software. I've not had the occasion to try this, but it looks like it may provide you with the drivers you need. You can also manually set up the download for your drivers from this site as well.


To see if you have any native drivers you can go to the Device Manager, (Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager.) and scroll down to Sound, video and game controllers. Click on the + in the box to the left to expand the tree. If you right click and then click on Properties a page will open with a box titled Device Status, it should read This device is working properly.

That motherboard has integrated audio, so in the tree there should be some listing of this.
