PC/Notebook Sound Problems!!


You might have seen many Query Regarding Sound Problems. You never know, what might be the exact reason without checking all the Details. I could Provide you with Simple Generic Steps for all Window User's :-

1. If you are Unable to Listen to the Sound, Use the same Speakers on another set to make sure, that the Speakers are working fine. Once confirmed, Use Headphone in another Jack/USB slot to make sure that jack is fine.Make sure that the Connections are Tight and Well secured.

2. Basic Settings - You need to make sure that the Basic Setting are all set and fine. You could open the Sound Settings by Selecting Right Click and then Selecting Open option. You could also access the same by :-

Start > Control Panel > Sound > Adjust Sound Volume ( For Vista and Higher Versions )

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

Now, If problem persists, there is a Corrupt Driver/File that is causing PC/Notebook to react in such manner.

The best way to Fix this is SYSTEM RESTORE

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tool > System Restore

Select an Old Date that you could see and continue with the Procedure. Once Restore it would make restore all the Files that would FIX the problem.


In case, if the System Restore Does Not Work, in that Case, you need to Delete and Reinstall All the Drivers.
