    hello guys,

    i was here a few days ago asking about a card recommendation. well, i installed it and it works great. but now i have no sound!!1

    installed a new graphics card (Radeon 4770HD), everything seemed to work fine except when i loaded HL2 and then Winamp. Winamp's error was specifically: 'bad sound driver...,' but both were on the same lines... no sound.

    my previous card was old. a Radeon X300 series. it was included w/ the comp. when i purchased it some 5 years ago.

    is it possible that the sound and the video were coming from the same card? i was under the impression sound could come from the mobo or a sound card. i sort of remember the video card and sound being called, 'integrated,' when i purchased the cpu though. either way, i do not get sound when i turn on my cpu so i know something is wrong.

    canihazhelpplz?

    let me know if you need more info to help.

    tx ot.

    here is the image i see under sound in control panel:

    Check device manager

    Right click the sound card that probably has a missing driver

    Select Details tab

    Choose "Hardware IDs" in the drop down list

    Post the Value in the box below.
