Every time I start my computer, I have no sound. I must alternately roll-back or update my audio driver to get the sound working. Win XP sp2-Integrated-Vinyl AC '97. I'm stumped. Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

First question is:

Did you ever have sound with this,
constantly?

And what you did to **** it up?

And why haven't you triried any of the drivers that are plentiful for your chip?


Any reason at all why you actually need help?

Yes - until about a month ago.

"And what you did to **** it up?"
If I knew that ~ I would fix it. System Restore apparently does not go back far enough.

"And why haven't you triried any of the drivers that are plentiful for your chip?"
I have updated the driver but the problem persists.

Any/all "constructive" suggestions welcome.

The Device Manager shows all audio devices as good. (no yellow or red)

To make this clear, if I am reading correctly. You can still get sound if you roll back the driver, is this correct? If so is sure isn't the speakers. Make sure you get all windows updates for your system. Maybe the driver update you are installing is too advanced for the OS.

Yes - The speakers are fine, I just have to roll back or update the audio driver after each start-up, to get the sound back. I don't really want to leave my computer on day and night, but it gets annoying having to mess with the audio driver every day (if i want sound) Niether of the two drivers that I alternate between are "advanced" - 2005 & 2006, and I keep windows updated. So far ~ I'm not smart enough to figure this one out.

My System


Hello, just wondering if your sound chip is built on your motherboard, or are you using a seperate sound card.
Also, does your sound card use an external software program, if so-look at all the options this program gives you concerning speaker recognition and any profile saving.
Also make sure you don't mute your system.

You could alternatively purchase a new sound card as a last resort if nothing else helps solve your problem.
