Windows won't recognize audio card.

9 posts in this topic

I re-installed windows, and now I have no audio Sad.

sndvol32 produces: "There are no active hardware mixers available. To install mixers...blah blah control panel.

I installed the medion realtek drivers with no success. Windows won't recognize the card, and it's not producing any yellow "!" in the device manager.

+ Sound, video, and game controllers

Audio Codecs

Legacy Audio Drivers

Legacy Video Capture Drivers

Media Control Devices

MPU-401 Compatable MIDI Device

nVidia WDM A/V Crossbar

nVidia WDM Video Capture (universal)

Standard Game Port

Video Codecs

Anyone ever have this problem?

EDIT: Forgot to mention card is on motherboard

What you probably need to do is install your motherboards chipset drivers. Then, you can get the sound driver on there.

Did you download the newest drivers?

You can find it on your motherboards website.

Yeah, you need to make sure you have the newest ones. Nothing looks out of wack with the current devices you listed meaning there isn't anything blocking the drivers being loaded. Sometimes if you have drivers for another device of the same type installed the other drivers will fail but won't tell you. Make sure you have the newest drivers loaded and then do a scan for changed hardware in the device manager and see if it picks anything up.

No changes in scan, latest chip drivers :-(

I highly doubt you had a hardware malfunction from the time of installing the new OS.

Maybe you might want to try to reinstall your OS?

It may also be that your copy of Windows is pirated. I don't know why that would matter, but it would seem the only thing that has changed is your operating system at this point.

I would reinstall the drivers, then maybe reinstall Windows.

Good luck mate.

Yeah, reinstall the OS from scratch and make sure you install the newest chipset drivers first thing.
