I have an Advent 1.60 GHz, 0.99 GB RAM laptop and basically about the third time now, the sound is gone. I don't know whats going on. I've read a message the other day on it, can't remember where, it said the sound card is missing or gone, something like that. previously when this happened in the past, i just reinstalled the sound driver with the cd that came with it. i know that will fix it. the sound doesn't work like when you log in or when an error message comes up but the sound works when i'm watching a video on like youtube. so whats going on. i noticd it started happening when i staopped using internet explorer and downloaded and installed mozilla firefox.
hmmm im going to assume this is xp due to the low spec?
right click on my computer, then manage. in device manager, look for devices with yellow question/exclamation marks. any to do with sound?
also check in the sound controllers section. any devices listed there?
