    My friend's 3 years old pc have sound stopped working and I had looked at device manager, sound and audio device, volume control & mute. They are all fine and I have bought in my spare speakers, no luck.

    It is Realtek AC'97 Audio which is intergrated in motherboard so could it be possible a fault?

    Would it be worthwhile to get a new PCI sound card?

    Sorted. It turned out to be sound driver, I have downloaded the latest and that fixed it so it must have been corrupted driver in the first place.

    After thinking what to do, I just realisted that I haven't tried sound driver! :rolleyes:

    Close this thread please

    Cheers
