Try the following


Then make sure the Mute box is unchecked. If that doesn't work,
and make sure that all the mute boxes are unchecked.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. So your computer's sound is not in mute mode, it is just not producing sound then.....

    Check the speaker socket by removing and replacing the lead.

    Ensure the mute button on the front of the computer has not been pressed. (I'm sure you will have tried this anyway.)

    Make sure you don't have something plugged in that is killing the sound.

    Check to make sure your sound card driver is installed and not corrupt.

    To be on the safe side, update the driver.

    Try logging on as a different user and see if it works.

    You can always create a new user account and then delete it afterwards. If it works with a new user, then it is more than likely a conflict.

    Finally, although unlikely, the sound card may be faulty.

    Be careful if you do open your laptop, they are not easy to work on.

    Have you tried plugging in a pair of headphones?

    The only other thing you could do is restore your computer using System Restore to a point where the soundcard worked ok. Other than that, if it's not the soundcard itself, it beats me...

How do i get my headphone working on my compaq v6000

Double-click the "sound" icon at bottom-right of the computer screen.
Check that the speakers are not "muted".
If the speakers require power, make sure that they are powered-on.
Turn up the volume on the speake itself.
Using the "sound control", increase the sound-level going to the headphones.

Dvd rom will play cd with sound it will play dvd with/out sound

Well the good news then is that its not a hardware problem, it is most likely one of the issues below:
1- Vista muted the player that you are using: Launch the player and then at the bottom right corner by the time click on the volume control and select mixer. It should list all the programs you have open. In vista you can mute a selected program, make sure all programs are not muted
2- The volume control is turned down on the Toshiba laptop: On Toshiba laptops there is a volume dial control located either on the front or around the sides, make sure that it is not turned down. play a song and try adjusting it both ways
3- Conflict with another Video/Audio Player : Un-install any newly added media software.

HP laptop, wont turn on...

I have the same model with the same symptoms in for repair. This is a motherboard issue and requires a reflow of the GPU and chipset. It has nothing to do with the LCD because the buttons don't react when the laptop is "turned on". The touchpad turn on/off button does not react when pressed, the same is with the wifi, volume and mute buttons.
The problem is in a poor solder and a cracked/oxidized contacts due to heat buildup.

Black screen

Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

My speaker is muted - no sound on my HP Pavilion zv5

This sounds as though there may be a problem with the driver for the sound card within the computer.

If you enter the device manager (found in control panel) you can update the drivers for this device from within there :o)

There is no sound and volume on my laptop.

if you have the sound driver for your laptop, try to reinstall it.

Also, check if you have the volume controller icon appearing in the system tray (desktop-bottom right) and check if the sound and speaker control are not in mute.

No sound is coming from my speakers.

Best bet is to first try the software.

Assuming you are using XP, go Start> Programmes> Accessories> Entertainment> Volume.

Make sure all sliders are up at max and none of the mute buttons are turned on.

If these are all ok, try reloading the sound card driver.

Then see if the sound works with Windows commands (power on / off etc).

Try and work out if all of the sound is off or only when the DVD is playing.

Hp zv5346us audio problem

Try to look for the sound icon in your task bar. select properties then try to check options then select all settings that are supposedly running in your system uncheck those settings that are set to mute then adjust the volume lever to higher level.ex. Right Click sound icon,-open volume control, When volume controls appear click on the properties,-then select all settings that you might be using then close the volume control panel. then try to run again. if possible it needs restart to take effect the new settings.
