  1. I just recently reinstalled the OS on this http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/a-question-about-xp-pro.190109/ .
    Everything on it is working but no sound via the headphones from front or rear jacks.
    I tried uninstalling/rebooting to reinstall , but it didn't work. I know it worked before because the user watched plenty of videos on youtube.
    Here are the specs

    According to Device Manager, it says I have AMD High Definition Audio Device.
    There was an update for said via filehippo so I tried installing it on the C: Drive but didn't work so I checked out I: Drive & saw AMD in there so I repeated it & still nothing. Unless you can give me the link to AMD, I'll google it & try that.
    "EDIT" I've found the AMD & am using the auto detect.

    Ok, I'll try the realteck site since the AMD didn't do nothing but add an icon to my notification area telling me the color & dimensions

    I did something correct finally. I can hear now.. I googled realtech & after looking thru the results, I saw realtech audio at the bottom, long story short, it downloaded & installed I rebooted & heard it.:) (y) Thanks Cobalt006 for your help.
