Hi there,

I have a pentium 4 desktop computer at home, well it was running fine since 2 weeks... i had remove hard disk to place on another computer as slave and the re-inserted the hard disk back, but since then, i don't have any audio devices on my computer, the audio is integrated. When i go to Control Panel/Sound and Audio Devices there is no audio devices.

When going to the audio tab the Sound Playback and Sound Recording are grayed out and i can't choose any of them.

I tries to go to Administrative Tools/Services to check whether the Windows Audio Startup type was set to automatic and it was correctly set to automatic.

I tries to install several sound drivers like Realtek and SIS but the problem is still not resolved.

Here is the information for my Motherboard:

Try 'Last Known Good Configuration' before Windows boot up by pressing the key F8.
Maybe this will help you...if not then let me know.

I already went to the motherboard and installed the VIA AC97 Audio and also other audio driver
but i still got the same result...

Open Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager
Look under audio devices, right click and uninstall.
Look for yellow marks on other devices while you''re there.
Devices will be reinstalled on reboot and should work, with a little luck.

i can't uninstall the drivers because when i right click i don't get the option to uninstall the drivers....

You have to expand the category (Click the plus sign) to see the devices.
If that doesn't work, use the "Action" menu.

Actually have you tried doing a Custom windows Update.
I have also tried what you have done (HDD to slave on another computer) but I did a Windows Update and went to Custom Update or what ever.
In the "Hardware" part of Windows Update it might give you the necessary drivers.

Let us know

Thanks Maui_Mallard. Interesting thing is that the audio was ok till I upgraded to windows xp pro fro home edition (on which my HP printer was not working). Windows pro solved the printer problem and the audio worked well for about two days then it went off... Keen to try your suggestion. Gday.

Hi

I cannot explain exactly why this is a common problem with XP. I tried out the same stuff you did to no avail. Eventually I had to use the toshiba restoration disc that came with my Equium and it solved the problem.

My wife's computer also got the same problem after getting infected with lots of trojans and I had to re install windows. That has solved the problem for now.

Is your windows an original version coz I got the problem the first time when I tried to upgrade using a pirated copy...


someone with more win xp experience should help us out
