I recently uninstalled realtekac97 and now i have no sound. When i uninstalled it it asked if i want to uninstall all that was associated with it and i chose yes. i have tried to restore my computer to previous point and it will not restore. i have tried to reinstall drivers. Still no sound.Is realtek apart of the microsoft windows program for playing audio??

Realtek is NOT part of Microsoft. Sound drivers for your computer are usually installed with the chipset drivers. The manufacturer carries sound drivers on their websites. Make and model of the computer would help to find the correct drivers. If this is a custom built computer then the model and make of the motherboard will usually let people find the sound drivers.

These drivers may not be correct for your computer but it shows they can be found.

Unfortunately, i did not mean for you to pay for drivers. What i was trying to show is that there are many drivers for realtek sound chipsets. I was hoping you was able to give me the make and model of the computer or the motherboard so i could find the correct drivers for your computer. Most drivers are FREE. Since you have installed some kind of driver, i would check the connections to your speakers to make sure they are plugged into the right socket( pink to pink, green to green).

Do you have a speaker icon on your taskbar? If you do then right click on it and click on "open volume control". Once volume control is open make sure "mute" is NOT checked in any of them(small box at the bottom of each column). Click on options and then click on properties and make sure there is a dot in "playback"( click on the dot is there isn't).

Do you know that your speakers are working? Tried them on another computer?

It is all good. the link didn't help me even though it costed me. i am thankful for people like you helping some one like me.I had already tried every senerio that i knew and thats was first the simply things like speakers volume controls which i didn't have. I still don't have a volume icon in the tray. but i can access it thru the control panel. I found out what the brand of mother board i had and went to the site and downloaded the driver i needed for free cause the linked site didn't help me. Anyways thanks for your time and your help....
