I have a HP Media Center 884 computer that has (or had) Soundblaster Audigy 2 installed. There are no devices showing under Sound and Audio devices or AudioHQ, which informs me to reinstall the sound card. How? I did not receive any install cd's with this purchase over 3 years ago. How can I find out what happened that is causing the sound cards to disappear. I've tried System Restore using different dates but it will not restore. The sound seems to have disappeared after I installed IE7. I have reverted back to IE6, but still no sound cards. Any help would be appreciated. No system sounds either.

Try going HERE and finding the drivers for your sound card. Download them and install. See if that does it. :thumbsup:

Thanks, I have done that and the response is that I have no sound card. Is there a way to test the "existing" sound card without opening up the box?

Not that I know of. If your computer does not know the card is there, how can it be tested? Is it an on board audio? If so, maybe check the BIOS to see if it's enabled. Or if it's PCI you can change the card to another slot . But that means opening up the case.:flowers:



edit: Had a brain fart and blew my brain into video card mode, so I came back to change it. :thumbsup:
