Hello,I have a realtek HDMI sound card but after deleting and having Windows XP SP3 detect and re-install it I still have NO AUDIO Device in the Control Panel>Sound panel Playback box.
Thanks for any help
You may also have to visit the Realtek website to download the HD driver for your audio, not all drivers are in the MS servicepacks. You'll need to know you operating system (WinXPx86 or WinXPx64) and the codec, e.g., ALC885 for your hardware.
Can you see your Sound Card in Device manager and if so are there any warnings associated with the device?
Hi again dassox,Everywhere I look Device manager,Sounds and audio devices,the sound card and drivers are showing OK as expected. in control panel>sounds and audio devices the volume tab shows NO AUDIO DEVICE, the audio and voice tabs have the default playback device "greyed out" but default recording devices are realtek HD as expected,all other tabs display devices as installed and working correctly,drivers etc have no conflicts.
Once again thanks for your thoughts
1.Uninstall your sound card driver using Driver Cleaner Pro v1.5
2. Switch off Computer.
3. Plug out & reseat the sound card.
4. restart & Install Latest driver from Realtek.
Hi saran,used Driver Cleaner to uninstall,it picked up 1 more file than previous uninstalls,Reseated card Windows found the card on reboot and installed the latest driver that I downloaded today.
Still the problem stays with me
Thanks for your time
