Go to "Start", "Control Panel", Administrative Tools, Computer Management, click on "Device Manager" on the left hand side and look on the right hand side. See if you have a yellow exclamation next to the "Sounds, Video and Game Controllers". If yes, double-click on the line with the exclamation and then click on the driver tab at the top. Click update driver and when it asks if you would like to to check the internet for updated drivers, tell it yes, this time only and continue. After this process, it should either download and install a new driver for your sound card or install the one that was shipped with your computer. If this does not work, please let me know and we will check the next possible problem.

Please remember to rate this solution.

I'm not sure if it was Guru's advice, or the additional steps I took. But after following Guru's advice, in the same area I scrolled down to Services and Applications, clicked on Services, then scrolled down to Windows Audio, double clicked that and re-stared Windows Audio. I'm not sure what it was that worked, but it did! Thanks!

SOURCE: The Audio of my Asus notebook laptop was uninstalled.What should I do? My laptop now has no audio.

The audio driver should be on the install disc and if not go to the asus site and download it and reinstall it.Toy may also want to look in your recycle bin if you have not emptied it .

SOURCE: Hi, I have some

The problem may be the fact that you have two drivers loaded simultaneously. Try removing each one separately, rebooting your computer and using the other one to see if that fixes the problem.

Depending on what operating system (OS) you are using, you will need to go into the Control Panel and select "Add or Remove Programs" to remove the driver.

If you are not able to remove it that way, you can restore your computer to an earlier configuration using the Restore command. Note: buttons you click on are shown here in UPPERCASE.

If you're using Windows XP, click START, then RUN and type the following, without the quote marks:

then click OK.
On the "Welcome to System Restore" page, click "Restore my computer to an earlier time" (if it's not already selected) and click NEXT.

On the "Select a Restore Point" page, click the system checkpoint, which should be a date earlier than when you first loaded the driver(s). In the "On this list select the restore point" area, click an entry that is named "Guided Help (Registry Backup)", and then click NEXT. If a "System Restore" message appears that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make, click OK.

On the "Confirm Restore Point Selection" page, click NEXT. System Restore then restores the previous Windows XP configuration and restarts the computer. Log on. When the "System Restore confirmation" page appears, click OK.

You can use the System Restore command to undo many different problems caused by loading programs, drivers, etc. I believe the procedure is similar if you are using Vista or Windows 7, but the window names may not be exactly the same.

I hope this helps.
Good luck!

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?

Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:

To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started

I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.
