Hello All,

I am here to find out how do I get sounds back on the PC. I recently installed Windows again and started fresh I guess but I haven't got a clue what to do to get sounds going on. I do not have the motherboard's programs CD if there is one so I really haven't got a clue. Information of the motherboard is:

System Manufacturer: Micro-Star Inc.

System Model: MS-6704

If you need anyh other information, please don't hesistate to ask. Many Thanks :cheesy:

Best,
Nigel

First info would be windows version ,i know of about 9 different ones !!You just say you loaded Windows !
sounds like you need the drivers for you sound card ! do you know if has a addon sound card or is it a onboard sound chip .If it onboard then the motherboard model # is good ,if it a addon like a soundblaster we would need it name and model # who makes you computer !!thanks
EDIT: If this is you board you will find driver for it in the download center in the left panel .

Right Click on My Computer and go to properties. On the hardware tab select Device Manager. If you have any question marks on the page, then you have drivers missing.

If you have a question mark under Sound video and game controllers then thats your problem. You'll need to install drivers, which should be available on download from Micro Star.

If everything is present and correct check sounds and audio devices in Contol panel, check volume is set and mute is off. You can do this in volume control, select the little speaker item in the bottom right corner. Press the arrow if you don't see the icon.

Hope this helps

Sorry I assumed it was on board sound, if it isn't you'll have to open the case to see what type of soundcard you have.

Windows XP Professional is the one :) Thanks for the help, I will give it a go as soon as I get back from school and see how it goes! Thanks again!

Hello again,

Sorry but could you please point me in the right direction to download the correct drivers? I've already tried twice and haven't got a sound result and do not want to risk trying another.

Caperjack,

You have the correct motherboard. I just can't seem to find anything with the MS-6704 so could you please assist in finding it? :o

MartyMcFly,

I can't seem to adjust either the volume or anything as a matter of fact. It metions about not having a sound device.

I also DO NOT have a sound card after checking inside the case.

Many thanks again!

Best,
Nigel

hi,try the multimedia icon below motherboard in the list . post the picture of what open in there
Intel ,i just read on that link doesn't offer ac97 drivers because there are so many different versions ,they suggest you check you motherboard manufactor for the correct verson .
Adding this like for safe keeping .your sound drivers should be one of the C-Media ones in this list !!

Extract to your desktop ,maybe or a folder you use for other downloads ,click the green icon CMUNIST ,that looks looks like the install/application file icon .

Is your PC a brand name PC (Dell, Compac, Alienware)? If so, find out what model number it is, go to the manufactures web site, seach for that modle numbner, and you will be able to download all the drivers shipped with that PC. If not, go to Control Panel | System | Hardware | Device Manager | Sound and Video Game Controlers. It should tell you what type of sound card you have. From there, go to the card manufactures web site, and download the drivers from there.

Never mind, scrolled through the thread too fast, didnt notice you had it solved. That'll teach me to read before I post :o
