Have speakers but no sound; drivers maybe? [Solved/Closed]

Hello,
I have just recently installed Windows XP Pro again in order to wipe my hard drive because of a bad virus. Everything is working fine except for my sound. For some reason the computer doesn't detect, respond to, or work with my speakers some how. I think it might have something to do with drivers but I'm not sure. My speakers are "Multimedia Speaker System" just some run of the mill computer speakers. If anyone has any idea why this could be happening please help.

Thank you,
Kory

what operating system are you running from also if you highlight my computer go on to properites then hardware then device manager then look if somthing is alerted which usually has a yellow warning sign next to it

Thank you! I was ready to try hitting my computer with a hammer when I stumbled across your reply. I followed your instructions and had my new driver update in >1minute.
i have formatted my computer but sound is not working
I have had the same problem as many posting here (no audio ever since reinstalling my OS) so I gave the Driver Detective (link provided in previous post) a try. While the application is handy, frankly I found it a waste of money. I guess it's nice that it tells you which devices have no drivers or those that are out of date, but the downloads they provided for me were not even compatible with my computer or OS, so they were useless. Next, I went to the support site for my computer manufacturer (Dell, in my case), clicked on the "Drivers" link, and it walked me through the process of downloading the needed drivers to restore my audio (it has every major category of drivers broken down for you). It even helps you determine which drivers are specifically compatible to your model of computer. My audio works great now! I only wish I now had my 30 bucks back from Driver Detective.
my desktop computer name is dell. computer working well but sound driver is missing please check my computer and install sound driver.

Just used this link, had sound in about 5 seconds. Thanks so much!!
Its not really an answer but the same thing happened to me yesterday, for the same reason.

I've been told I need a new driver for the sound card.

Problem is while looking I've discovered that its going to cost at least £20.
What LOOKS like 'free download' means free 'driver detective' download, the actual driver costs money in every case.
Anybody know different??

Try to get updates at Microsoft, try this thread

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7music/thread/de5b98ea-12c1-4361-b8e2-8b02c4470d72

If you dont wana do that, you can try like

https://www.driversupport.com/
https://www.paretologic.com/
http://speedmaxpc.com

or any other driver database , where they scan your system and detect what drivers you need or outdated and automatically download them for you, its pretty cool actually and makes it so you dont have to search for them yourself!
