Do you know the model of your Medion PC, look over the tower. I think it may be a T series, come back with what you find

Most Medions come with a drivers / application CD.

What country do you live in if you dont mind me asking? If you're in the UK and its a UK model, you usually get the drivers disk.

Set a System Restore Point before installing just in case

To search th Medion site you need the serial number from the machine. but from what I have seen, mostly french sites it has Realtek High definition, go here to Realtek http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

download the (Excution file) save to desktop, double click to install

The site is slow

Hope this helps

Hi

Like many others i have no sound after reinstalling windows xp.
Last week,very foolishly i did a very dumb thing and installed Freespire Linux (out of sheer curiosity !) not realising that this would wipe out everything including windows ! I didn't like the Linux system so had to buy the full windows xp installation.....thats one very big costly mistake i will never make again. Anyway to get to the point everything works perfect apart from the fact that i have no sound at all. I've just run the Belarc Advisor ....any help or advise would be very much appreciated.

NEC part No:P841006601 lists your comp as an iMedia 5041, go here to Packard Bell
http://support.packardbell.com/uk/it...1006601&g=2000

your audio is SigmaTel C-Major

Hope this helps

Barbara,

Thanks, but that was one of the first sites I've been to. Whenever I install the SigmaTel C-Major Audio driver from that site, I get like 10 "Found New Hardware" popups and my Device Manager is filled with "Unknown" devices with the little yellow "?" on it. Although under the Sound Drivers tab, it says the SigmaTel drivers are working properly, when I go to Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices, everything is gray and says there is no audio device, so then I go to the Hardware tab and open my SigmaTel Driver Properties, and it has a mixer device installed, but when I double click that, it says "Status: Driver is enabled but is not functioning properly" and there are two radio buttons with no words next to them and a "Settings..." button which, when clicked, gives me a box saying that my driver file is missing and to try installing my driver again, and if that doesn't work to contact my system administrator, but I'm the system administrator... *sigh* I just keep going in circles and simply cannot figure this thing out. Should I download a driver from the Sony site from a different country and see if that works? Maybe my computer was made for Europe or something and got sold in the US? Any more help you could send my way would be amazing! Thanks again for your support!

- Jon

Check this out
Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Component Services / a separate window will open in left pane click Services(Local) / Scroll down to Windows Audio service / if the service is Disabled or Manual right click > select Properties > under Startup Type change to Automatic.

Cheers
