Hi I was wonderin if anyone could help me to figure out why i do not have any sound from my computer.

My speakers stopped working and i bought new ones and the new ones do not send sound out either. I have

looked it up n people say it might be cuz of a "sound card" first of all i have no idea what that means im

lucky to remember what the monitor is Ha ha ha (but its seriously true). So i was wondering if anyone could

help me out i can tell you my operationg system is Windows ME. Anythin else you can ask.



Thank you so much for taking time to look and also if you can help Extra thanks.



Mucho Gracias

Hello,

If you got new speakers and they didn't work it is most likely to do with the sound drivers or card.
If you rightclick on My Computer and click on properties, then click on the device manager tab, go down the list, and look for audio or sound devices.
what do you see there?
Regards,

Alan.

You need to extract the files to a folder, once thats done, look for an icon called setup.exe double click and then follow the steps.

It just means that the package couldn't find the relevent hardware,

try downloading this tool http://www.lavalys.com/ and ask it to scan your system, once it has finished, go down the list until you find hardware or sound devices. this will give you detailed info on your system hardware.
Regards,

Alan.

When you open everest go to the report menu and click quick report then html. It will then start scanning the system, once it has finished, it will give you a report. scroll down until you find.

Multimedia:
Windows Audio
PCI / PnP Audio
This will give you make modeletc of the sound devices.

Alan.

Now all you need to do is install a compatible dirver, This one should work for the pc http://members.driverguide.com/driver/deta...?driverid=84325
or
http://www.driverfiles.net/Sound-Cards/Ens...esultpage1.html
No6 on the list
once installed, restart the system and you should have sound.

Alan.

Hello, if you go to control panel, and select folder options then the view tab, make sure the hide extensions for known file types is not ticked. go to the file and take of the .xxx and replace it with .exe then try installing it.

Alan.
