I had to reinstall my computer and I don't have sound anymore because I lost the cd (sound blaster audigy) that installs the sound. Is there any places that sells the cd? I have an xp home editon.

Go to this webpage:

and follow the bouncing ball. You will be able to download exactly what you need to get your sound going perfectly!!

Hope that was what you were after! :thumbsup:

If for some reason following the bouncing ball doesn't work, go to the website of the computer manufacturer and download what you need.

If you were to give us the make and model of the computer, along with serial number or service tag number (if they apply), then we can give you a link to the appropriate download.

I did download the sound files at the computer manufacturer's site but it didn't work. I still can't get the sound to come back on.

"Follow the Bouncing Ball" is a phrase used to describe following instructions presented. The was no actual ball on the web page.
If you provide the exact model of you sound card, I can provide you a link to the software.

I have no sound either.
Where do I find information about the sound card on my computer?

Go to 'My Computer', right click and select 'Properties'.
In the window that opens, go to the Hardware tab and press 'Device Manager'.
Navigate down to Sound Devices and it should be in there somewhere. :thumbsup:

How do I disable any on-board audio device on my computer?

When you install your new audio card drivers (for example, for an expansion card) it would do that automatically.
However, you can go to the Device Manager and look for your on board sound device there - it would be an AC '97 device most likely. Just uninstall the drivers for it.
The problem is however, Windows will continue to automatically detect the installed hardware (because it is on the MoBo) and try to install it..
