I've deleted my SoundMax by mistake yesterday and now I don't have sound on the PC.
Any idea what I should do? I was told that I should check out what model the soundcard is and then search for the right driver.
Where to look for this info on my PC? I am with Windows XP.

You have to re-install it. And yeah it means you have to get the soundcards drivers.

You have to go to "add hardware" in the control panel and windows will realize it has hardware installed that doesnt have any software. At least usually thats what happens

a) are you on a laptop?
b) if not, do you know if you have a soundcard?

I suppose you could just let me know your motherboard model and I would get you a link to the right driver because I'm 99% sure it's a HP with some integrated device (SoundMax refers to an integrated audio driver). Check this for me: Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information.

When System Summary is selected, you should see System Model listed on the right. Let me know exactly what that says. For clarity, it won't hurt to mention System Manufacturer.

Also, if you can see a Sound Device under Components on the left, you might just as well tell me what that says too.

Did you purchase the PC from a well known manufacturer (Dell, HP, Sony etc)?
If so, there should be a model number on the chassis, either on the front or the back.
With that number we could determine what exact hardware is within your system.
Another solution would be to try a System Restore, although I suggest googling that and reading up on it before attempting it if you are unfamiliar with PCs.

I think you rather deactivated the soundcard than deleted it. Usually Windows would recognize a deleted onboard soundcard as a new component by the next time you start up. Other than that, check in DOS if your onboard soundcard has been disabled, even though I have no idea how this could happen if you didn't do this yourself.
You can reactivate the soundcard in the control panel/device manager.

Check your device manager, just google the way to go.



If you can see your missing soundcard -> blabla -> Hardware-IDs
Then google for on of them.

Easiest way? Open your computer and read the model / serial number etc.
Then go to the manufacturers support site and look for it.

1. press `Start` button and choose `Run...` (or just press Win+R)
2. mmc %systemroot%\system32\devmgmt.msc (write this and press Enter)
3. find in the list your SoundMAX with exclamation sign, right click it and choose `Properties`
4. open `Details` tab, you'll see Hardware info like this:
VEN_1102 DEV_0007 and etc.
5. go to website www.devid.info/en
6. write in search string your hardware info
7. in search results find exact product name of your device
8. use google to find late or compatible drivers for your SoundMAX
9. take beer
