All of a sudden, my sound stopped working (no sound, I couldn't access "Volume Control", nothing through the speakers, but it is playing) , so I attempted to fix it myself.
So I went through the entire process on Help and Support Center and It sent me through to Device Manager, and the only thing with a problem was in "Network Adaptors" under "USB Device" (Nothing else, just USB Device)
It said Code 28 (The The drivers for this device are not installed).
So I assume that this is making my sound not work (speakers and earphones) as everything else in my computer is going and working properly. (On Device Manager anyway)
I tried to fix it, by reinstalling driver and had a problem on what I need to do. I clicked the "Install automatically" one and it says it couldnt install it and if I have an installment CD or software, put it in.
I have alot of disks that I don't know what they are for, so if you know what disk will help this, just tell me the name, and I will buy or look in my collection for it.
But I don't know if this helps but I also had this problem:
I had this other exclamation a while back on Multimedia AC'97,under "Sound, Video and game controllers" and it said Code 10 (This device cannot start).
And thats what I thought the problem was, and then I checked for any windows updates and other things (sorry I can't remember them) and then I installed this "VIA AC'97 Audio Controller (WDM)" and then that replaced the other one, and it's working properly. Plus, I could now access "Volume control".
But My sound still doesn't work, so it's that Code 28 problem that is making me recieve no sound.
I'm really confused and need help. I know basically nothing about Computers; but I do know how to follow instructions.
If you need me to give you any additional infomation on my computer, then don't hesitate to ask me.
Someone PLEASE help me as I need my sound for a project for school.
