Question about Computers & Internet
1. Check your speakers if they're turned on and the volume knob is turned all the way up.
2. Go to Control panel>sound and audio devices.. Click on the "Audio" tab and make sure you see something inside 'default device' under soundplayback that doesnt say microsoft. If it's blank, click the dropdown arrow and choose the non-microsoft option. If it's blank and there's nothing to choose from, go to step 4.
3. Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted in windows. Click on Volume under sound properties and make sure it's not muted. You can also right click the speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner and click 'Open Volume control. all the balance levers should be in the middle and make sure none is muted.
4. Go to Start. Right click 'My Computer'. Click properties>hardware>device manager. If you see a question mark or exclamation mark for an entry that could be related to your audio device, that means you need to reinstall the sound driver.
If this is the case, you can tell me the make and model of the computer so we can look up the correct driver. If the sound card though didnt come with the computer, try reinstalling the cd that came with it.
5. If you dont see a yellow question mark, it's either the sound card inside your computer is not detected (could be loose or defective) or you need to repair windows.
