Post 3+ Months Ago

Hello all,

I came to the point where I'm desespaired. I have no sound on my computer for almost three months now. I have spend countless hours to install a sound device but nothing seems to work.When I go in sound and device manager it shows me that there is no sound device install. I had Realtek AC'97 before.I even thought it was the speakers. I got some new ones and still doesn't work.
I have ERROR CODE 10 each time. I have a windows XP.

I am begging anyone to help me thank you

Have you connected the audio jack to the correct output port on your mobo [ I.E. the green one :P ]

It has a generic version, I leave XP drivers alone unless I have no other option.

Isn't error code 10 "this device cannot start"?

Regardless, try disabling and enabling the device. Also, try uninstalling the device in device manager and then re enabling it. This sometimes will work.

If nothing works, your device might be conflicting with another one if you have another sound card or something, which I doubt. If all fails, you can get a cheap PCI sound card and install that.

^^ Software/hardware conflict, two or more devices are sharing the same resources.

If you have legit copy of XP i suggest you do this. Uninstall all the previously installed audio drivers and then restart your system. Then go to Windows Xp update website located here
http://www.v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

and install all the necessary audio drivers it finds or recommends you to install and then restart your computer again. I am pretty sure this will fix your problem if it doesnt not please post back and i will look into another solution for you
