Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

My unboard sound card is not working. In the sound and audio devices properties window it shows no audion device. How do I get this to work?


Answers :

One option that you have is to re-install the drivers. Because this hardware is onboard, you will have to specify what model computer you have before anyone can provide you with help on how to find those drivers.

Once you download and install the drivers for your motherboard, you can go back to device manager to check the status of you audio. If it still doesn't work after re-installing the audio drivers, I would suggest that you totally disable the onboard audio and install an expansion card with audio ports in one of your open PCI slots.

If you will post a comment providing information about the model computer and/or motherboard you're using, it will be much easier for someone to help you find the appropriate audio drivers. From that point, you can figure out whether or not the onboard audio is still functioning.
