Sounds like you need drivers for you SOund. What kind of motherboard do you have ?

Once you know what kind of motherboard you have google the manufatuer and on there website they should have drivers for it.

The easist way to find information on your computer is to download Everest home edition and run it.

This should tell you the motherboard maker and what sound device is used so you can find drivers.

Or not downloald anything and just use device manager =)

No offense to SRX660 ...

Use device manager. Hopefully you know how to get there ...

My computer -> Properties -> Tab labled "Hardware" -> Device Manager.

If you see any yellow "?" then it means the computer cannot idenitfy the object. And that you will need drivers for that item.

Some times windows just detects a sound card as a audio device which gives you absolutly not clue as to what card it is.
Check via device manager and if that doesn't show anything useful then use Sysspec of Everest.
