Run the motherboard drivers disk to enable the on board sound.
Run the PCI card CD to enable the PCI card sound.
You'll need to go into the BIOS and tell it which sound device to use. Either the integrated peripherals (on board sound), or the PCI slot. Run the driver CD for whichever device was working.
Again, how do you know the system was hacked?
Recently my desktop has been hacked so that all sound is disabled. And this has continued from my onboard sound card and the PCI sound card that I later installed.
To fix this problem, all I think of is by reinstalling the PCI card and its driver. But there is no other PCI slot on my motherboard that I can change to.
How else can I fix this problem and re-enable one of my sound cards (onboard or PCI card)?
My motherboard is the Gigabyte GA-7VT600 which has the C-Media AC97. And my PCI sound card is a Crystal SoundFusion CS4281.
BTW, my OS is WinXP Pro and it runs on the FAT32 platform.
What would be the easiest method of fixing, re-enabling, or reinstalling either of these sound cards? And I'd also like tips on preventing such a future hack.
