ok so, just about 2 hours ago my computer stop making any sounds at all through the speakers. i cant play any music cause nothing comes out. i know that the speakers are turned on and plugged in right. i have also checked my master volume and im 100% sure that nothing on mute and everything is turned up all the way. so im really baffled at this problem but some people have mentioned to me about a driver or the sound chip is broke but i have no clue what that means other then the music doesnt play.
i get a error message saying "hardware not found" etc.

if anyone can help me and tell me what i can do i would greatly appreciate it.

thank you in advanced.

Dan

ok your computer should of noticed the change when you uninstalled the driver
its may run slower now it would not have made much of a difference because
this is your quote

i get a error message saying "hardware not found"

go back to control panel system hardware device >>is the yellow or red mark there

try to roll back the driver>>if that dont work then do a system restore

go back when sound was working good

if that ont work we can find suitable new compatible driver for your sound drivers

just need your make of computer and model number

ok you need compatible drivers

they can be found and are available

==================

need to ask
do you get any errors like code 28 >>29 >>31
if you do try this

create a back of the registry key

right click the key {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

click on export and save as graphic reg backup

that way you have a back up of the registry key


Run REGEDIT, open up the following folders:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
{4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

After clicking on {4D36E965-E325 -11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} you should see two settings on the right-hand side:
"Upperfilters"
"Lowerfilters"

Click on each of them, press DELETE and click YES.

====================================


or just make of computer and the model number

> > > > model number < < < <


the name of the computer should be easy
it should show on the tower or desktop
it could be ..hp pavillion...acer...dell ...anything

as for the model number its self it may be located along side computer name or make
it maybe also located on the back of tower or on the side

=======================================

"media input format is not valid"

does mean too much at this stage

sorry i was away for a bit

well i searched dell site pretty good and did not find your model there

so download driver genius for here and use the program to find the

http://www.driver-soft.com/download.html

name date and company name that has compatible driver for your

sound card put a check in sound on the left and compatible driver shows on the right

you dont need to purchase the program your only using it to find the download site

it can be where drivers can be found

you can always uninstall the progam
