- What Is a Sound Card?
A sound card is a typical piece of hardware in computers that allows for the input and output between a computer and any device it may be hooked up to, be it a speaker, video camera, or other device that incorporates sound. Most computers have some kind of sound card already built into them, but others require an additional card in order to meet audio requirements for certain applications. Sound cards that can be purchased come at different strengths and prices.
- How to Fix a Sound Card?
Check for the latest sound card drivers for your computer. Has your hardware been adequately updated of late with these sound card drivers? If you have reason to believe not, click on "My Computer" and select "Properties".
Click on the "Hardware" tab and then on "Device Manager".
Right click on the driver(s) listed under "Sound, Video and Game Controllers".
Choose the update option (there should be a "Driver Update" button), and wait for the update to begin. (If the auto update option does not work, skip to Step 6 below.) The Auto Update Wizard should pop up. Follow the Auto Update Wizard. Updating the drivers for your sound card should be a cinch, as a Wizard for the sound card driver installation process should pop up that will take you step by step through the painless process. A few clicks of the "Next" button inside the Wizard will take care of most of the work for you.
Restart your computer for the driver change to take place. Failing to restart the computer will leave your sound problems the same as before.
Go online to find drivers manually if the Auto Update Wizard does not work for you, or if you simply choose to have more control over the upgrade. Visit your official computer manufacturer's website, where sound card drivers for your model can be found, downloaded and installed.
Input your computer model number into the website when prompted and search for associated drivers to complete the driver acquisition process. Your computer model number can be found either on the bottom of your computer unit, or via documentation and manuals that ship with your PC or Mac. After installing the downloaded drivers, restart your computer.
- How to Install a Sound Card?
First step is to read the users guides and familiarize yourself with both the old and new sound audio card. Before starting, verify that you have the current drivers for the card. They are usually found on a CD-ROM that came with the card, or you can download them from the manufacturer's Web site. Wear an antistatic wrist band or touch the computer case to remove static electricity before continuing. Power down PC and remove the AC power cord. Open the computer case. Locate the old card and unplug the speakers and anything else plugged in to the card from the outside. Disconnect the CD-ROM sound cable from the jack on the old sound card itself. Some computers may not have this cable.Release any clip holding the cable in the jack, don't just yank it out.
