i just got this pc and have no sound for some reason. When I turn the volume all the way up on the amp, I can barely hear it.
Now I tried to use the volume controls on windows, it does not open, Any ideas?

go to start/settings/control panel/systems
then find the audio device... then go to properties & update your drivers

When you install, point it at your C:\WINDOWS\CABS, if that doesnt work then use the disc you hopefully may have.

Unfortunately I don't have the disk for it. Theres no way I could download the proper driver. I believe the sound card is a banshee or something similar to that.

Thanks for the help.

Can you post your IRQ list...maybe it'll give us some clues....

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok...go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

Ah, from that list, there is no indication you have a soundcard.....what's the history of the computer? Is it new?

thats strange, Im sure I have a sound card. No, this computer I got for christmas and I have been upgrading it. I'll open up the case and check back with you later, but I believe I have sound blaster installed. Also, I have an audio out on my dvd drive, is it possible to connect my sub to it for the time being, or wouldnt it work.

Thanks again!!!!

Here is a wild shot in the dark, but it helped me. I couldn't get any sound out of my computer either.
Try going to start, settings, control panel, double left click sounds & multimedia, or multimedia, depending on if you have ME or 98,
select a different midi device.
I had the wrong one selected, and never got any sound out of it.
After changing the midi device, I started getting sound through the speakers.
Let me know what happens.
