Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

Dell speakers i deleted sound max and now my speakers are not working how do i fix this problem


Answers :

Chances are that when you deleted Soundmax, you deleted the drivers as well. I am going to assume that you 'deleted' the "Soundmax" entry from your Add/Remove Programs console or chose "Uninstall" from the Soundmax folder in your start menu.

The problem is not your speakers. The problem is the audio hardware. I'm willing to bet that you don't have any drivers installed for your Soundmax audio hardware.

More often than not, when you uninstall the software for your audio hardware, it also removes the drivers for the audio hardware.

I would try re-downloading the drivers for your Soundmax hardware and reinstall them.

Soundmax Drivers:
http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/3312/

I am also aware that this Soundmax chip was licensed to a different company by Realtek. (They designed the chip.) You can also try the Realtek AC'97 audio chip drivers. There may be a few differences in the way the software works, though. Here you go:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=23&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#AC

I myself would recommend the Realtek Drivers. However, I also have an experience with this particular chipset where I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 1 or below and they worked just fine. But if I installed the drivers in Windows XP Service Pack 2, the system just reboots itself over and over again unless I use Safe Mode and uninstall the drivers.

Instead of fighting with that issue, however... I just put in a different soundcard and deactivated the onboard audio hardware in the motherboard's BIOS.

Just a heads up on that...

Good luck with this. Let us know what happens if you need more help.

Pc audio My 2 yr old Dell pc now plays ALL audio as chopped up, skipping playback. This happens with the speakers, with the front headphone jack, or the rear sound card jack on headphones. The speakers work fine on another pc. ALL audio is affected, CDs, mp3s, wav files, even startup sound files. If I display the Task Manager window and the Performance Tab, the chopped up sound is directly related to the spikes in CPU usage. Any ideas for additional troubleshooting? Thanks
