After reinstalling windows xp sp2. I have everything back except for my sound, after getting the drivers and utilites cd from dell, and getting the files for my sound card. I try to install it. halfway through it says. Installation failed, unkown error.
Deleted sound card from the add and delete software. now, whenever i try to listen to music or watch a dvd on my computer, the sound doesn't work. it says cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding. I had listened to music on my computer before, but now i cant. is there any way i can recover or get new hardware for my memory card? i have windows xp home edition.
I am really hoping that one or a few of you can help me with my issue. Back in June, I reinstalled Windows XP Professional on my computer. Previously, the PC kept freezing, saying Windows Explorer error, etc. Unable to do any work at all on my computer without it freezing, I reinstalled Windows. Problems solved. Except now, since then, I have had no sound at all coming from my speakers! I am missing the audio drivers, I think. Finally, yesterday, I downloaded Realtec AC 97... and now I can hear things opened on Quicktime from the internet, but cannot hear any sounds from websites or other programs I have on my computer. The little speaker control, that is usually displayed permanently in the right hand corner of the Windows toolbar, doesn't show up. I still have Volume Control on my computer...but of course cannot hear anything.Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do? I've tried unplugging the speakers and then plugging them back in to no avail. I don't think I have the installation CD for the speakers anymore, as I got them a few years ago. But if I did have them, is that how the drivers would be reinstalled?
I recently upgraded my OS to WinXP Pro from WinME, and there is no sound. I right-click My computer, go to properties, hardware, device manager, then there are 2 yellow circles with exclamation points in them under Multimedia Audio Controller (Intel 82801AA ac'91 Audio Controller), and Unknown Device (Microsoft MPU-401 Compatible MIDI Device). I tried to reinstall them, but it says There was a problem installing this hardware: Intel 82801AA AC'97 Audio Controller. An error occured during the installation of the device. The data is invalid.
I succesfully update my BIOS "flash it" but lately , my sound its making some funny stuff ( like... poping sounds) and the "cliki sounds" of Windows when you open a folder, change page, etc. sometimes it sounds like a interference of a radio (bruugggtttt ) short my sound example ok , well , then it fix by itself , but then later comes again . my windows media player sounds ok, for now , havent notice slow in music yet , but musicmatch somtimes sounds funny , just the start opening music (intro) but songs OK.by the way I update my nero , so I uninstall and install the new version , I didn,t configure Nero to open wav files or sound files .should I need to update my sound driver for the chipset of SoundMax ?
I reinstalled XP and updated the drivers, including for my soundblaster audigy 2 card and now i cannot get sound from any application; however, i can get sound (from speakers) when Windows boosts and at startup.
install a sound driver or audio driver on windows xp, it worked on windows millenium before i upgraded to windows xp, can someone please tell me what i must do to install a sound driver and or audio driver i also have no access to the internet on that computer, this is my spare
When I was cleaning up my program list I accidentally removed my audio driver. I have been unable to find the same driver, or even a working one. HERE is my computer. I tried downloading the drivers from that site, and also from Intel.com ,but none of them have worked
I miss a step or screw up formatting just let me know. Earlier today I downloaded a sound driver for my card hoping to update it. It caused lots of problems. But first the normal details: Quote: Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600) 2.65 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 FX. I have also tried removing the card, starting up the pc, rebooting, and then returning the card with no luck. I've tried uninstalling the drivers entirely but they always seem to reappear when I reboot
I got the following error:Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.What I did was I just deleted some part of the registry related to the USB (HKLM Enum and Services parts) and didn't do some backup (Yeah I know.)thinking that maybe the controller will be installed automatically upon hardware change scan. Anybody can tell me how to fix this without reinstalling WinXP? Right-clicking to update driver in Device Manager doesn't work.
I reinstalled XP Pro from scratch, overwriting the original partition. Everything has worked fine, apart from I have no sound - the system is not even picking up the sound card in control panel, which unfortunately means I have no idea what the sound card is in order to download the drivers to see if this is the problem. The sound is on according to the BIOS.
Reinstalled XP Home after a major crash, everything came back except sound. Tried to install the drivers, but the device wouldn't let them. Used the disc that came with the motherboard, a Gigabyte S-series. Have installed all updates and service packs from Windows. Done everything by the book, but to no avail.
I'm running XP Pro SP3 and have recently encountered a problem whereby both the mouse and the keyboard freeze the first time that the keyboard is used. (The system still seems to be running because it performs a normal shutdown when I hit the power button.) Googling suggested uninstalling the keyboard from device manager and then letting it reinstall; however, the add new hardware wizard fails saying that the device driver is corrupt or missing.How do I reinstall the keyboard drivers from the XP Pro CD? I've tried letting the hardware wizard search the cd drive, but it doesn't find anything.I think I had the same problem on my notebook, but I only solved it by reverting to an old Ghost image, because having to press Ctrl-Alt-Del to log on meant I couldn't even access the system with the mouse.
I have a Dell Dimension 8200. The HD died, so I replaced it with a HD from another older Dell that had Window's 98 installed on it. I upgraded to Windows XP Home with the CD that came with the 8200. Everything works except there's no sound. There are no errors or conflicts in the device manager. I've loaded the drivers that came with the sound card and I've loaded drivers from Dell's web site. Still no sound. Mute is off.As far as I can tell, there is no on board sound.I've also loaded the chipset drivers, although this was after I finished the XP upgrade and had sound issues.I try loading SoundMax but I get an error at the end - driver not found.I've tried checking the set up (F2 when booting) to see if the sound card is disabled or if I could disable onboard sound but the only sound option I find is the PC speaker.The only other thing I've found on Dell's web site to try is to reformat the HD and start from scratch. I'd rather not do this if I don't have to.
I'm reinstalling my XP Pro OS and I need a file for Extreme Graphics Controller Windows 2000/XP installation disk. The message states I need this file 'ialmnt5.sys'. I have searched google, been on intel, I can't find it. Anyone out there know where to get it? I was going to burn it on cd and put in drive to continue my install. I'm stopped right now for the fileDo I HAVE to have this? Last time I said no, cancel, it completely stopped my install.
