No sound only in the game could be Microsoft Direct X issues or sound card settings Direct X is a set of APIs (Application Program Interface) developed by Microsoft to allow all programs to write instructions for hardware without knowing exactly what hardware is within the computer Games which include Direct X will have the capability of utilizing multimedia and graphics accelerator features more efficiently Because Direct X installs a new set of extensions for the sound drivers it is possible to lose sound which can either come back after restarting the computer, restarting the game, or never come back You should first make sure that your sound card manufacturer does not have a proprietary set of Direct X drivers that may be required to be used for the sound card to properly work If the manufacturer does not have a proprietary set of drivers it is recommended that you download the latest version of Direct X.
