... hi "saurabhsinghgaharwar"...... download System Spec (freeware)

http://www.alexnolan.net/software/s...

... the download is @ bottom of the page when you click above link.

... if you downloaded the "zip" file extract it then "run/open" the program.

... once opened click the sound icon and "post back" sound card details.

... there are some other buttons to "test" if its not a driver issue.

"Product: Intel / Whitney system cr board"

If that's the mboard you need sound drivers / sound software for ....

Whitney, apparently = the main chipset of the mboard is Intel 810E.

However, the mboard may or may NOT have been made by Intel - most mboards with Intel main chipsets were NOT made by Intel - and the sound chipset and which sound drivers / sound software you would require for the mboard model varies, because the sound chipset is not built into the main chipset.

In any case....

Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.
The specific model of a brand name system is shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site.
The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.

For Dell computers, they have a Service Tag number - the specific model can be determined by using that on their site, or can often be determined there automatically by you downloading some software. The Service Tag number should be on a label on the outside of the case, probably on the bottom on a laptop, on the back on a desktop, and is often also shown in the bios Setup.
........

Genuine Intel made mboards usually have a Dxxxx model number on them, printed on the surface of the mboard, or it's on a stuck on label that's somewhere on the mboard top surface - sometime's that's on the top of the parallel port.
A made by Intel mboard may have an Intel bios version, or a brand name system bios version.
......

Whenever you load Windows from a regular Windows CD (or DVD) from scratch, after Setup is finished you must load the drivers for the mboard, particularly the main chipset drivers, in order for Windows to have the proper drivers for and information about your mboard hardware, including it's AGP or PCI-E, ACPI, USB 2.0 if it has it, and hard drive controller support. If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. If you load drivers from the web, brand name system builders and mboard makers often DO NOT have the main chipset drivers listed in the downloads for your model - in that case you must go to the maker of the main chipset's web site, get the drivers, and load them.

Load the main chipset drivers first.
........

XP already has the built in drivers for all the Intel 810 series desktop main chipsets built into it, and auto installs those, but you also to need to load the IAA (Intel Application Accelerator), which is not built into XP or any operating system, in order for your hard and optical drives to be able to run at their full speeds, and if you have and are using the integrated-into-the-main-chipset Intel onboard video - video built into the mboard - the graphics drivers / software for that on the Intel web site are newer and better than those auto installed by XP - both downloads are available on the Intel web site in the downloads for the desktop main chipset 810 series.

i also have the same problem on my cousins computer. Although the computer is not missing the driver found that out when i updated the driver and still had the same problem. it just stops working. When i restart it works without touching the driver. The only suggestion i can tell you is in your device manager and check to make sure nothing has a yellow circle but it with a "!". Dont just check the sounds. check everything..

The most common causes of sound not working or not working properly on a computer is the sound software was not installed, or the wrong sound software was installed (there are many different sound chipsets) , or it was the right sound software but it was not installed properly.
I'm saying sound "software", because sound "Drivers" software is almost always NOT just drivers - it has programs that must be installed along with the drivers in order for the sound to work properly.

The proper sound software is in the downloads for your mboard model if you have a generic desktop system, or on the CD that came with the mboard,
or in the downloads for your specific model when you have a brand name system, or some brand name systems come with a Recovery CD that has sound "drivers" on it.

The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site.

You DO NOT install sound drivers while booting into Windows.
