    Right, first off, what soundcard do you have (Manufacturer and model would be best if you can find out)? If you're unsure of this, who made your PC, and what model is that? Secondly, what operating system are you running (Windows XP, 2000 etc.)

    Also, have you checked that the sound isn't simply turned down on your PC? In Windows, open the Control Panel and click 'Sounds and Audio' and check the settings.

    Kind Regards

    Ok, first off we're going to need much more in the way of system specifications than that. Most importantly, what sound card have you got? Is it built into the motherboard, or is it a PCI board? Also, have you still got the driver CD that came with it?

    Also, while the "txt msg" style of post is tolerable in the general chat forums, it's really not going to make you any friends when you're asking a tech question. Post in proper sentences please.

    You could try looking in device manager and see how it describes your sound system.

    try uninstalling and removing ur network card, move the sound card to another pci slot, get that working again, then try ur network card in all the remaining pci slots till they work :)

    Custodian has beaten FBM and I too it ;) If you look in the device manager (Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager) you may be able to get your soundcard name from there.

    It could be that there is just a conflict between the soundcard and the network card, so you may not even need drivers. Without more detail it's hard to say. If you have any kind of free technical support with your PC, you may want to use it.

    Kind Regards

    Recognising any conflicts should be fairly easy, by the way.

    Once you go to the Device Manager as described above, any so called 'problem devices' will be highlighted with a "(!)" icon (black on yellow background). Additionally, the device tree that they are a part of will be expanded automatically (normally operating hardware will be collapsed away as usual).

    If you visit the "Properties" box for any highlighted problem devices you may find a small description of the problem. You're very welcome to bring that back to us and we'll see what we can do, you will also find that searching Google with the error may help you out a little. Maybe ;).
