Hi everyone!
My old Dell of 8 yrs old up and died last Fri. My friend gave me a temporary computer while I decide what I want, how much to spend and all those things. {I'm coming to you guys to get help knowing memory, etc I should know later before I buy anything)

Everything on this computer works great and is speedy fast compared to my old Dell. But, I can't get the audio on.

When I checked for audio info this is what I got:

"Creative SB Live! Value (WDM): PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0002&SUBSYS_80271102&REV_08\3&61AAA01&0&80, Creative"

I've seen the codex or whatever that list inside the control panel is and seen "(WDM)" and set it to that, but it stil reverts back to another setting.

Anyone have any ideas?

Love Y'all,

Alias 775 :D

Hi Pennie77
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number, motherboard and any
add on card details would also help others to help you better.
You could try uninstalling the present drivers and then reinstalling them
from here http://xpdrivers.com...CFV_92AodgR5eHA download and save them
before deleting the present drivers.

Right click "My Computer" and click "Properties" and then click the "Hardware" tab and then "Device Manager". Is there a yellow apostrophe in the "Sound" tab.

You're most likely using on-board sound. You should download Everest Diagnostic from here http://majorgeeks.co...nload4181.html.

Download, install and the run. It will tell you the manufacturer and serial number of your motherboard. Then you can track down the sound driver you need.
