    One of my Laptops had some issues and it only works in safe mode. Now I know the Sound doesnt work because it is not needed when in safe mode but Is there any way to activate the sound for now?



    PS:I do not have a sound card.

    I dont think you can activate your Sound in Safe Mode..
    and what problem are you facing in normal mode..?

    If it's in Safe Mode, there is no way to activate the sound driver as it is not loaded in Safe-Mode. Your network card, however will work if you start Safe Mode with Networking. But for other device drivers including sound card, it won't work.

    Even if you install a new sound card, still it won't work in Safe-Mode.

    Yes, it is possible to enable it in safemode. Follow the instructions given here:

    Code:

    You need to edit some registry settings so take a backup of your registry before playing with it!

    Instead of trying how to enable sound in safe mode, tell us, what kind of an error did you had in normal mode?

    Did you checked RAM, Hard-Drive, Grafik, Sound, Motherboard, CPU?

    If malware is active, it will eventually infect you in Safe Mode, and then you will truly be screwed. Rather than worrying about sound, have you got all your data backed-up yet?
