  1. I was uninstalling some programs and I wasn't paying attention and I think I uninstalled my audio device. Under "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel it says I have no audio device. The only sound I can get now is the beeps.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Win XP.

    I've tried reading other posts and the Help section in Windows and I can't figure out how to get my sound back.

    Please help!

    sounds like you need to reinstall your sound card's drivers. unless you have a restore cd or the cd that came with your sound card, you might need to go to the sound card manufacturer's website and download drivers for it.

    sorry, for the stupid question, but how can i figure out what my sound card's manufacturer is?

    i have no restore CDs or anything like that. it's a laptop - i'm not sure what kind of sound program or audio device i had.

    try going to add hardware in control panel and auto-detecting your sound card.

    also, try finding your exact computer and model on the computer company's website. from there you can find all your pre-built specs. (if your laptop is not custom built or modified) it might have a link to download original drivers as well.

    if you have trouble doing this, reply with your computer brand and model and someone will look it up for you.

    did u read this thread, go to HP web site and get the drivers for the computer. reinstall the audio drivers. if it is a separate add on sound card install from the CD that came with the card.
