I recently removed some programs I didn't use that my comp builder put on this harddrive. One of the programs I removed was SoundMax. Apparently SoundMax was "my" audio device, since now I have zero sound for anything.

My question is, where can I get a free 'audio device'? Its driving me crazy not hearing some of the normal sounds. :thumbsup:

SoundMax looks pretty good stuff. Have you tried re-installing the drivers from your Device Manager. Just a thought.

If that came with your motherboard as the software for an onboard device you can get the software and drivers from support at the manufacturer's website.

If it is a pci sound card go to support at the manufacturer of the sound card.

The builder of my comp says the SoundMAX card is integrated in the MB. He gave me the site www.drivers.com to get the driver I need. I downloaded the Driver Detective, which should inform me of the driver I need for my system. It comes up with an error instead, saying something has happened and the scan can't be completed.

Seems I am running low on luck......
