Question about Computers & Internet
My pc is suddenly reporting audio palyback erros
it will nt operate my itunes properly
even my main desktop has lost the sound cntrol
wat should i do
cant hear anyting on the headphones
ReInstall Drivers: Start - Settings - Control Panel - System - Device Manager, Expand Sound Controllers, Right Click on your sound card, Click Uninstall. Reboot and reintall.
Might ask to reinstall automatically. Thats fine. Install then reboot. I prefer to cancel the install until I have rebooted. But both ways tend to work.

FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports.
If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations.
(If you hear sound from other devises such as plating a CD of the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.)
If this is OK then try...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on 'My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devises that have 'Audio' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab, look for any "Warning" icons
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
