Where is my audio ATI?

Post by fordmayhem » Tue Aug 05, 2008 6:49 am

Right.

New gpu,

Uninstall old drivers.

Reinstall 8.7.

Everything works, sound etc.. apart from a game, so i do a driver down grade to see if it works.

Uninstall 8.7

Reinstall 8.6

Game doesnt work, sound doesnt work.

Uninstall 8.6

Reinstall 8.7 game works ( well, i found the problem) sound doesnt work.



This also happened before 2 weeks ago when i got another gpu and i installed 8.6, no sound, but when i went back to 8.7 sound worked again.


But now no sound works.

Anyone know a fix?

Open your device manager and make sure your audio hardware doesn't have a yellow exclamation mark next to it. Try downloading the drivers for your sound and reinstalling them. Also, are you using on-board audio or a dedicated sound card?
