Go to the "Control Panel", "System", click the "Hardware" tab at the top, now click the "Device Manager" button. Find where it has an exclamation point next to this "C-Media AC97 Audio device" (I'm assuming you have already been here). Now right click on it and click "uninstall". Reboot your computer. Windows should now say it has "Found New Hardware" and ask you what to do. Follow the instructions, basically you just click "next" and "ok" a few times. When asked where to install the drivers from tell Windows to automatically find them. Windows will now proceed to reinstall the drivers that should already be located on your pc. You may or may not have to reboot after installation. Hopefully that works for you. If you did not ever have this sound working on this current rig then let us know because you may have to install entirely new drivers.

ok... well i followed your instructions... and when i uninstall it, reboot, it says new hardware found right. It does NOT bring up where i want to install it... or windows should look for it, it install its self, but when i go check the device manager, it still says it has a problem, with the yellow error sighn beside it..??

any thoughts on that?

Welcome Earthling, two links for you then but Everest has gone 30days trail so after that it's up to you. The other, Drive isn't as good but it is stand alone which makes if very useful. links are:

Everest

Drive
http://www.alexnolan.../deviceinfo.htm

Sorry, above is just me with a canned text practice, ignore, just meant that if you double click after installing one of the above then it normally tells you or even links you to the site that has the drivers for your sound card

I had this problem, and it was because the monitor got disconnected from the brain when it still had power going to it.

I went to the System folder through the Control Panel and uninstalled the exclaimed device, restarted and reinstalled...

JUST LIKE YOU TOLD ME TO DO!

It fixed it.

Thank you.

Well i'm trying to find out what motherboard you have in your pc because it looks as if you have "onboard sound" meaning that your sound card is part of your motherboard rather than a separate card that plugs into it. Try this:

Download a program called CPU-Z from here and upzip the contents of the file to a folder you create on your desktop. Now open the folder with the new files in it and double-click on cpuz.exe. Now wait a few seconds for the window to pop-up and when it does click the "Mainboard" tab at the top of the window. Now take down the Manufacturer, Model, Chipset, Revision, and Southbridge. Let us know this information and perhaps we can find the sound drivers from your motherboard manufacturer's website.
