No sound after reinstalling windows xp

I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP Professional.  I installed the SP3 also.  Except that now it does not even record that I have a sound card.  Reinstall, I used with sound edge and it worked perfectly, but now in Device manager there is an exclamation mark next to "Audio device on high definition audio bus." After running dxdiag, it says that there is no sound card.  Any help would be appreciated.

After having reinstalled XP did you download and install the audio drivers?

Download drivers

Visit the manufacturer's Web site and select your model (this is usually done in the Support section). You should be able to download drivers for your model if they have drivers for your version of Windows. Download the driver (s) and follow the instructions to install - the process may vary with different manufacturers, so I can't give you exact directions.

  • Satellite L40 - no sound after reinstalling Windows XP Home edition

    I really need help from anyone out there. I installed Windows XP Home edition on my Toshiba Satellite L40 after that I realized, there is no sound. I tried to install all kinds of updates, drivers and all, but still nothing.

    All make me is that I have no audio device.
    Grateful for the help as soon as possible.

    Do you have the yellow marks in Device Manager?
    Are you sure that you have installed all the drivers?

    Have you installed SP2 or SP3 for Windows XP? You must at least use SP2 for XP.

    And as said Akuma, check the Microsoft KB to the hoftixes. Before you apply this update, you must remove the driver. Otherwise it will not work.

    You can also search in the forum, there are already discussions on this topic.

  • 840 M6u35aw G2 #abh: HP 840 G2 no sound after reinstalling windows 10


    Had to reinstall my OS and for some reason I can't get audio to work. I tried to update the latest drivers (realtek hd audio) and even tried older drivers, but I can't not all sound on my laptop. Before reinstalling my OS (win10 64) evereything worked very well.  Anyone who has a solution?


    See if running the sound windows troubleshooting tool highlights the problems.

    You also have the opportunity to test the audio in the menu diagnosis uefi by pressing f2 at startup.

    EDIT:  Its also useful to check that the audio is activated in the Bios Menu (press f10 at startup) - the option is usually located on the Advanced tab. Built in the device options... Audio device.

  • Satellite Pro U200 - no sound after reinstalling Windows

    Hi all

    Title of SAA says, I tried a ton of things, been on it for about a week and nothing works. I have the sound with headphones, but I can barely hear it. Anything through speakers.
    Sound was working fine before

    Thanks in advance for any help


    If you can hear the sound with headphones, make sure that the internal speakers are not on mute and line-out isn't your audio output by default.
    Therefore, check the audio settings of Windows!

    Also, what OS you have installed?

  • Satellite P10-873 - no sound after reinstalling windows device

    Satellite P10 873 PSP 16th:-not his Device
    Win XP-Home Edition SP2

    Everything was going well until a bad sector on the hard drive. I have Ran Chkdsk /r and re-installed windows.

    In Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager it is a unknown device in the sound,.
    Section of video and games controllers which I think can be unit XT of SRS truesurround.
    also Realtek AC97 sound devices shown as correct and functional.

    Tried to load the audio drivers from the website of Toshiba (sound-s-p10-xp-510005490) and still no audio device

    available from the configuration/sounds and Audio devices Control Panel.
    Got the patch KB888111 from Microsoft and installed, still no luck.

    Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong please?

    Satellite P10 is old enough laptop model. I have very good experiences with P20. It's almost the same laptop, but a bit bigger. A friend of mine uses P10 for the job and we have installed WXP Pro using all the tricks of the Toshiba support page. The OS is installed two years ago, and the sound still works.

    If you can not get this to work, I recommend you remove all the important data for the D partition or save on an external device and make the clean OS install. It will be interesting to see if the problem persists.

    By the way: is a connected to your laptop satellite external game controller?
    An interesting solution, I found here.

  • Compaq CQ58: No sound after upgrade Windows 10

    No sound after updating Windows 10.

    Installed HP Support Assistant, which came with a video to try a headphone jack with Windows 7, so no joy there.

    Tried several times scanning but "HP has encountered an error when trying to analyze your product."

    Although this suggests that the failure of the scan, produce a result: Driver (1)

    Under 'pilot', it says "Windows 10 drivers may be available via Windows Update".

    But I already tried Windows Technical Support, who drew a blank and referred me to HP!


    I recommend that you try the audio driver IDT W8.1 support page for your laptop.

    This works in most cases.

    This package contains the driver that allows Audio IDT high definition (HD) in the notebook models that are running a supported operating system.

    File name: sp58406.exe

    If the W8.1 driver does not have the noise at work, try this...

    Go to Device Manager and click to expand the category of audio, video and game controllers device.

    1. click on the Audio CODEC of IDT high definition in Device Manager.

    2. click on the driver tab.

    3. click on Update Driver...

    4-> select Browse my computer for driver software.

    5. Select-> Let pick me from a list of drivers for devices on my computer.

    6. Select Audio device high definition (not IDT high def...)  "This is important). and click Next.

    Warning message is displayed, but the answer Yes.

    7 Windows has updated your driver software.

    8 restart the PC

    Key is step 6

    Hi MarkS_02127,

    Since you've reinstalled windows, you will need to re - install applications once again, you will be lucky (if you format the drive) data on your computer. You remember that location, it was in my documents? If yes it just open C:\Documents and settings and locate your old username, you will find your old desktop, Favorites and Documents.

    I can't find your audio driver on the HP support page, but I was able to locate it, which is the same engine as yours, just the latest version. According to what is listed, it supports Windows 8. Give it a shot and let me know if it works for you.

    Know what type of network card you have and download the drivers of its supplier.

    It doesn't matter what it is always a good idea before re-install/upgrade to log on to the computer support page, download independent drivers from there and put them on a flash drive.
