  1. My sister put together this computer as she has upgraded, so pretty unfamiliar with it. And all of a sudden it has no sound coming from it..? So I have done all I can by reading similar problem posts but alas am obviously out of my league with this problem, but promise I have given it quite a few hours of following posts and their adviceā€¦

    :)

    Take the notepad file and when posting to TechSpot use the paper clip icon (above message area) to attach the file to your post. (vs paste) If you';re not seeing paper clicp you need go to Advanced view (should be a button for that BELOW message area)

    am we;ll get it fixed tho maybe not till tomorrow

    just did a quick glance

    Before addressing your sound card problem looks like you're missing chipset drivers (some of which can be apre-requisite before anything can even connect to sound card)

    If need be, will follow up tomorrow.

    have a happy one, everyone :)

    Solved...Thanks........

    Thanks LookinAround I had too download chipset software . Install and reboot after the install was completed.

    Then download RealTek AC'97 audio codec, Install, and reboot when the install has finished.
