i just finished building my computer. I have no sound options, not even a volume control on the bottom right control pannel. when i checked out the sound options through windows copntrol pannel, everything was frozen. it said i had no audio devices and no sound options. this doesn't make sense as i have speakers for my computer. the speakers are fine, i used them in a little portable CD player i had, and they worked. but i can't turn up the volume on my computer. infact, i can't even access it. does anyone know how to fix this problem? microsoft has been pretty useless in helping me.

Howdy,

Did you install your motherboard chip-set drives and also your drivers for your sound card?

"i just finished building my computer"... What type sound card did you install? Are the drivers correct? Go to Device manager and see if you have a yellow exclamation point showing beside sound.

well yes that's what it means.. in particular it means you haven't loaded the proper sound card drivers. If your sound is on board do as Bonk suggested and get the proper chipset drivers for your motherboard. If you have a pnp sound card you will need the drivers from the manufacturers support site.
