You need to determine what sound card is plugged in your computer.
Normaly, when you bought the computer, you should have received all the CD's with the drivers.
If not, you can check inside your computer to see what sound card you have and look for the drivers on the internet.
Once you got the new drivers, make sure you uninstall all the old drivers.

Hello Cumminz...

Download Everest, install it, and run it on the machine. Save a report using the default settings, zip it up (right click > Send to > Compressed folder), and attach it to your next reply. We'll see if we can help you find the correct drivers.

It appears that it may be the chipset that's missing the drivers. Let's look at one other thing before we start throwing drivers at it.

Open Device Manager by right clicking on "My Computer" and choosing "Properties". Click the "Hardware" tab, then click on the "Device Manager" button. Look for any yellow ? or ! and list any you find here for me.

The yellow ! means that there are no correct drivers installed. You can check by double clicking the device and look at the driver tab.

The red x means that the device is disabled, removed or that windows is unable to locate it. Right click it and try to enable it.. see what happens

"the computer im trying to fix does not have access to the computer!!!" Do you mean you're not logged on with an admin account?
You will be needing that.

Is the PCI modem a built-in or is it a plugged-in?
If it's a plugged-in, just remove it if you don't need intenet.

For your audio controller, you'll have to open up your PC and read on the video card what type you have, so you can download the correct drvers
