no sound hardware

hi guys,

I have noticed that the "no sound hardware" problem for Vice City (and GTA3), seems to be a common one. But it doesn't matter how hard I look, I can't seem to find a solution. My computer has all of the recommended requirements and fully updated audio drivers.

Have people found a way to fix the problem? Or have the people who have the problem just given up?

Since it seems to be so common, I was wondering if anyone has had the problem and fixed it, and if so, how?

What sound card so you have? If it isn't direct x compatible, that could be the problem.

The sound card is Direct X compatable. The card is a Cmedia AC97. I have sound on everything else on my computer (as well as the Vice City intro video), but when I go to select audio options, it says I have no audio hardware. As well, I have no sound in the game.

Got to 'My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files' and delete 'gta_vc.set.'

If that doesn't work, reinstall Vice City.

Still no luck. Any other idea's? What is the general reason for the problem? If it is conflicting with other stuff on my computer, maybe I should try to find out what it is.

Seems like I am destined for no sound. Tried everything (except reinstalling the sound card- but with THE latest drivers, I hardly see how this would make any difference). Still, thanks for the help, and all I can do is hope that another who has had this problem, and lived to hear the game will come to my rescue. . Thanks all the same.
