Windows XP audio system help?
2009-05-15 09:30:36 UTC
I have a Windows XP.

My mom accidentally deleted the audio system, so now I can't hear anything.

I pressed "system restore" but it doesn't do anything.

Is there another way? Or am I using system restore wrong?

to use system restore you go to programs - accessories - system tools- system restore click next it should already be selected to do a system restore then select a date before the issue happend and go next next but remember that if the date is grayed out, you cant pick that date you have to pick one that is selectable then go next till finish and let the machine do what it has to, it will reboot and will let you know if it was successfull or not if it was you should get the sound if you dont get the sound and the system restore was successfull, you will have to go to the website for the maker of the laptop and download the sound drivers, very easy to do. hope this helps

but if you already had the drivers installed,

go into device manager and check to see if the audio symbol is still there,

if it is then the drivers have not been delated and then you'll know its down to software,

check the sound properties to make sure there are correct,

if missing download again from the company website
