Right click my computer and click properties > Click the hardware tab > Click device manager.

Are there any ! or ?

1)If there are double click the device and see who makes it, etc.
2)Go to the device creator's website and go to the drivers section.
3)Download the drivers for the device.
4)If it doesn't auto-install them for you, go back into device manager and double click the device that had the ! or ? Click the driver tab and click update drivers
5)Go to the location where you downloaded the new drivers and select them

I would go into device manager and click the + where you see sound, video games, and controllers. I would then update the drivers for all the audio devices (question marks or no question marks)

p.s. Did you set the jumpers on the HD correctly?

Hope this helps

What kind of PC do you have? Compaq, HP, Dell? Check their website and search for the model number of your cpu, then check the drivers or software section. There may be a set of drivers you can download, in this case you would open device manager and go into the location of the set of drivers and download them. You could always send the company an email with your CPU type and model number as well as operating system and ask them for the driver for the multimedia audio controller.

Lastly, you could try checking for info. in the other audio devices, in which case you could go to their website and look for a set of drivers.

Hope this helps
