To make sure that your sound card is working properly

If there’s a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem.

Click to open Device Manager.‌  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category, right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

Click the General tab, and then check the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
If there’s a problem, you might need a new driver for your sound card. For more information, see Update a driver for hardware that isn’t working properly.

If these actions don’t solve the problem, there might be a problem with the hardware for your sound card, although in most cases sound problems are caused by missing or out-of-date drivers, or a problem with your speakers. If you suspect you have a hardware problem, contact the manufacturer of your computer or sound card.
How do I turn a sound card on or off?
You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

Click to open Device Manager.‌  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Double-click Sound, video, and game controllers to expand that category.

Right-click the sound card or sound processor that you want to turn on or off, and then click Enable or Disable.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
How do I test my sound card?
Many sound cards or sound processors come with software that you can use to configure and test sound card settings.
