I might've lost it or never came with a cd since my computer was custom made and bought but even if I install the driver it says it cannot detect any audio devices while and in the device manager I cannot find anything on Sound and game controllers so what I am asking is how do I get the audio device in my computer?

It cannot detect any audio device because you haven't installed the drivers for one as bonk said. Installing the drivers installs your audio device in effect. When they are installed, your computer will then recognise it has one. Then you plug your speakers in and they work. Did you get a motherboard CD with your computer? They should be on there if you did unless you have a seperate sound card as your audio device. Otherwise you'll have to go to your motherboard manufacturers website to download drivers for it, or if a seperate sound card is installed, to it's manufacturers website instead.

The information that is needed is the Motherboard model number or the sound card model number if PCI.

You'll need to have a look at the back of your case mate and see if the speakers are plugged in near the keyboard or near the bottom of the case. That way we can at least narrow down if it is the Mobo or not!

Hmm I guess nobodys really paying attention because I told I reformatted and Im missing most of the devices a normal computer should have because I literally erased everything and only a few devices are left that actually leave me typing this here allowing me to go on the internet atleast and I do not know who my manufacturer is since my computer was custom made and how would I find the model number so I'm asking how do I get all the missing drivers back on my computer I do have a windows xp disk but I have no idea what to do I heard that if I get sndvol32.exe file into my system.
Missing Driver Include or outdated
IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
(2) Intel(R) 82801 EB Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 24D1 (outdated)
Mice and other pointing devices (outdated)
HID-complaint mouse
Other devices which are unknown and missing
Ethernet Controller
(2) Video Controller
Sound, video and game controllers
Multimedia Audio Controller(Which may be the problem to no sound)
System Devices Outdated
Intel(R) 82801 PCI Bridge -244E
(2) Intel(R) 82801EB LPC Interface Controller -24D0
(2) Intel(R) 82865G/PE/P/GV/82848P to AGP ...
Universal Serial Bus Controllers
(5) Intel(R) 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller - 24D2
Thats pretty much it I just need some answers where to install or update these drivers I would be glad if someone could help and this forum is alot of help.

You can download Everest home and run it. It is free from here. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html it will tell you the Make and model of your motherboard and from there you can go to the manufacturers webpage and download the drivers from there that you need.

Hi xdI77IHdx,

as you are able to access the internet, make sure you are connected then click on the following....

start>settings>control panel>System>device manager>

.....right click on an exclamation mark, then click 'update driver', make sure 'install software automatically' is checked, then simply click 'next'. Repeat this for every exclamation mark.

If there's no exclamation mark, maybe the card has come unseated from it's slot?

It's you who is not paying attention. Did you make your motherboard disappear when you wiped your computer? Are you a bloody magician? It's still there if you look. You have it. Only you can tell us what make it is. When we know what make and model it is we can tell you where to get the drivers. Which bit don't you understand?

As has been asked already, make and model no of your motherboard is needed.
If you have reformatted then you will need , chipset, video, audio and LAN drivers.
