FN pg up pg up. It that is not it try settings> control panel> sounds and multimedia> audio> volume Make sure the volume control and wave sliders are a least past the halfway point. Also check that the mute box is empty. If that dose not work then in that same window try > Advanced and make sure those settings are correct.

No sound on my ibm thinkpad t42

Please repeat to download the new driver from the IBM site for T42 and reinstall it once again.
If this wont help you either, then there is a possibility that the audio output is faulty.
But make sure that the audio drivers and the media players are in line.

IBM T42 with no sound card

It should be part of the mainboard rather than a separate card. Try uninstalling the drivers, then reboot and see if it detects new hardware.

No sound

First, go in and remove the service pack 3. This sp has done nothing but create conflicts with operating systems and software. You don't need it. Then go into the device manager and uninstall the sound drivers and reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you should be good to go.
