I get the message 'no sound device installed', when I try to play music. when I try to install the 'on board sound device', i get the message...' sound device installed and working properly, would like to uninstall it? ....(it does not show up in 'device manager'), so I click on yes to uninstall, and then reboot the computer, get the 'new device found' etc. and I install the drivers etc. then everything works..... untill I turn off the computer and then there is no sound again. This happens every time I turn off the computer
Does anyone have any suggestions.
Thanks

If your sound card is PCI, try taking it out and gently cleaning the contacts ,then make sure it is firmly reseated. A pencil rubber is ideal for cleaning contacts.

It looks like you have some kind of physical failure with the onboard system, it may be worth buying a cheap PCI soundcard and disabling the onboard.
