Recently, I have gotten a virus and I downloaded this program to get rid of it, but this important file was infected and i didn't know it was that important so i deleted it. When I was still checking for viruses my computer just restarted and when i try to log in, it didn't let me. It had a red x saying Explorer EXE. on top and saying the action cannot be completed. So, I found the disk to reformat the whole thing. So now, I have everything all fresh. EXCEPT, the memory is still the same. I thought it would be 100% unless my other program is still running...I don't know. So...back to my speakers... I cannot hear anything from my speakers. I can't even open volume control! It keeps telling me to go to "ADD A HARDWARE", but nothing works. I have tried for days. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me on these problems.

Do you have a seperate sound card or is it built in to your motherboard?

What did you use to reload Windows - a full install disk from Microsoft or a restore disk that came with your computer?

Did you reformat your hard drive before reinstalling Windows?

Have you updated your sound card drivers?

Go to the control panel and click on the System icon, then the hardware tab and then the device manager.

Do you see any yellow or red exclamation or question marks in any of the sound devices?

I figured out how to work my speakers...but I don't think i reformatted my hard drive and maybe because I don't know how...anyways..I think it's kind of too late now since I already re installed Windows. It would help if somebody could kind of like reverse everything though...Thanks.

OK, since you've reformatted - did you install the drivers that came with the motherboard/system? Did you install the sound card drivers? Did you enable the sound card in the BIOS?

Let us know the exact make and model of your motherboard (or your system if it came from a major manufacturer) and we can give a few suggestions to make this work.
