Hey

I have just got myself a new computer. I swapped the hard drives from my old on into this one and everything works great except no sound.

I know the sound card works because it did with the old HDDs in. Windows "add new hardware wizard" cannot detect the drivers for "multimedia audio controller" and "PCI Input Device," and yellow ? marks come up in the device manager.

I can't find the drivers on the internet but it would be great if someone else could, or someone could help me.

Im pretty sure that the sound should be coming out of the card, its quite a good one, a SoundBlaster, im not sure what type.

If anyone can helo that would be great :whistling:

Also... When trying to play sound through WMP, an error message appears, so i knopw it's not a problem with the speakers

Cheers!

you would need to go to the manufacturer's website (make of the card) and get the drivers there...you'd need to know what model card it is...unless this is a prebuilt computer (like a dell...though dells don't use SB cards much)..and it's the original sound card...then you could try that website and see if you can get the drivers there
