Right click on the MY Computer listing on the start column. Now click on properties, then click on the hardware tab. Now click on the Device Manager button. In this list under Sound there my be a yellow sign w an exclamation point in it. click on this sign and read to see if the device is working. If not, then try to reinstall the driver as the message says. Reboot the machine. if the problem goes away so be it. If not, then the problem is more serious and will probably tech work. Check back with the Tech and see if all he did was reinstall the driver. If yes, then it seems that a recent program installed or something else has messed with or is still messing with the driver or it's the wrong driver period. Also the sound card section of the MB could be defective. If all else fails, all I can recommend is you try to reinstall windows or have the tech fix it again and get a serious answer to what the problem was and how he fixed it. He should have told you in the first place.

Hi i dont know why i hadnt touched my sound settings apart from the volume level. but the next day when i tried to listen to music i noticed it wasnt working. i hadnt turned computer off it was working...


First of all restart your computer and then check if the sound comes back? In case not check the following:

Click Start, select Run, type "services.msc" without the quotes and press Ok. Services window will open up. In that window, select the Windows Audio Service and the status and startup type of the same. In case the startup type is disabled, double click on it and select the startup type as Automatic. After that right click on this service and click Start. In case the Start is greyed out, click on Restart. Now check for the sound.

In case the above step also not work, you will need to reinstall the drivers of sound card.

Please post a comment in case none of the above solutions work. We shall provide the next steps to fix this.

No soundmax audio present.


I need to ask. Do you have two speakers showing? One fat red one and one gray one as you usually see on computers everywhere?
Try this either way.
Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Volume Control and make sure you don't have a check mark in your Master Volume control found on the far left.
Are you using a Desktop or laptop?

REALTEK REMOVED MY WINDOWS SOUNDS!!


Solution:

best sol: go to start button ----->click RUN----->Type devmgmt.msc in Text Box -----> 

              Device Manager windows appears , click on Sound, video and game controllers(+), 
              if you see "Realtek AC97 drivers"(if they are visible...) then we can make sure that sound                     drivers are loaded in ur system, otherwise you have load it again.....


                                                          or

i) my best advice would be, dont mess up with installing, reinstalling, uninstalling sound drivers rather try   to format or reload your OS again(Windows XP) and then install drivers.

ii)  try to check volume on your speakers, volume in windows or system , volume in media players sometimes they may set to mute of no volume.......

iii) try to check all sound physcial connection that run from your computer to speakers, including power connections, cable connection ....or just remove and replace them(reseating...)

iv) try connecting a headset to your sound port, sometimes your subwoofers or speakers may fail.....



Thanking You

Have no sound on computer since getting it fixed. have checked drivers and they say it is working.


First you have to check your sound card is inbuilt or internal sound card.?
then check it out your cable settings connecting sound port with your speakers. and also check your audio and volume settings in your control panel or administrator task settings, whether is it mute or decreased volume.
try to reinstall your sound card or your audio drivers.then restart the computer and check the sound.
some times, the sound card may be damaged or your drivers for sound may be corrupted. check it out speaker settings also.
