No sound...

By peetree ·
I have no sound coming from the speakers, both external and the internal. When I came upon this I tried to play a song through MusicMatch and I received the following error, "WaveOut Format not supported." I investigated further and found that I have working properly my CM18738/C3DX PCI Audio Device, but there is one missing that was present before I had to reboot. It was listed as an "unknown device" and Windows couldn't locate the appropriate driver. I tried but couldn't locate it on the Windows Install Disk either. There was an Error Code 28 along with the message. Microsoft has no description of Code 28 that I could find. Any possible answers and/or solutions? I would appreciate an answer. There was always an answer to whatever dilemma I had!

Hmmm! Could I install the missing (?) driver from my system disk?

You possibly lost the wave synthesizer driver for your sound card.

You need to identify your sound card, and then download and install the driver for it.

You may be able to use the C-Media reference driver for the chip.

Make sure that you download the correct driver for your version of Windows.
