    Go to start menu => Run and type devmgmt.msc, and find your sound card. Is there a red X over your sound card? Is it expanded when you open the device manager or closed? If it's expanded, it could mean the driver needs to be reinstalled. Let me know what's going on with it.

to activate the wifi switch it is i believe it is down of the left front of the laptop actually on the front of the laptop itself and normally a slide switch which needs to be pushed over to the right before it will activate

My Sony Vaio VGN-FS690P has stopped playing sound. The sound card states it is working correctly. It does play one sounds, the sound when it starts and show the VAIO screen.

Hopefully this helps. Right click on your volume control icon. Open the "Volume Mixer," and make sure that nothing has the mute X on. Then right click on "Volume Control," and make sure that the volume control is checked to play all sounds, and that your Speaker box is checked. Next step is your music, if the sound was muted directly @ the music playback, this could be the problem. Open your Media Player and try to play music, if you cannot hear it, click on the mute button to the song playing. If your Player was shut off in the "mute" mode, then you will not hear sound. It Happened to me once. You will need to check all of your "Players" to see if any of them were shut off in "mute."

No volume on my computer

All you say is there is no volume. I will have to assume that the sound card is actually "seen" by the system. If it is in the device manager and it is shown as working, there are three things that can be wrong: Your volume can be turned really low. The speakers can be muted (will show up as muted in the sound setup in the control panel). The speakers can be bad. Unfortunately, this will require dissassembly of the computer.
Check the easy stuff first. Also, check the sound jack on the side of the computer with either external speakers or a headset. If you have checked everything else and the headset works, then the speakers are bad or disconnected.

HP dv71020us. Owned the laptop for 13 months and this never happened before. Audio does not come out of speakers until a headphone jack is placed in one of the front holes. When there is something...

Your issue from what I read is a setting issue.
you have your setting in headphone mode from what I gather and you need to place the setting for the sound card in output mode which is in the Windows sound setting.
1.Check the task bar where the speaker icon is ( Windows 7) or Windows XP.
2. Left click here and your volume control will show with a caption of "mixer" at the bottom.
3. Left click this hyper link and it will show you the properties of the speak device.
4. If you see a speak icon on the left >> click it and you will then see a tabs window
with tab label across with "general being 1st.
5. click the "level" tab and you will see the l"line in" microphone etc. They may be muted click the muted sign to enable.
6. then check sound.

No sound, installed all Audio Drivers and verified

Hope this helps. Volume can be controlled by the task bar volume switch and also the Laptop's physical buttons.

moz-screenshot-5.pngmoz-screenshot-6.pngHere is the support manual for the 9440.

Page 1-6 shows items 5,6 & 7. These are the MUTE, VOLUME+ and VOLUME-. The three buttons are above the 8,9,0 and - keys.

Good luck

I cannot get any sound. Not even with headphones plugged into the headphone jack. And I have checked both realtek audio managers on the toolbar at the bottom and nothing is muted...Am I missing something?

You probably are but I wont hold that against you LOL

Ok so you checked down in the task bar but have your checked by calling up the properties for the volume control.

to do this right click audio properties and make sure it says realtek in the top box on all the tabs.and make sure it is listed on the last tab "hardware" if it is you can then close them boxes down and right click on the volume control but this time select "open volume control"

you should be presented with a list of things starting with the volume control then wave then sw synth then cd player it may show more and in fact you can make it show more but we have what we need and now you should move all the sliders to at least half way If you take the first 3 and make them about 3/4

Try anything you want for sound preferably a proper music cd and lets see if we got you fixed up

Plz i wanna help,my computer toshiba satellite m35x-s149 does't have sound,plz send me the programme for download.thanks

We need to know what is happening when you try to play a sound.
Do you hear anything?
This is a laptop and you can turn the sound on and off by using your keyboard--pressing the function key at the bottom left of your keyboard and then pressing the sound volume key which is one of the function keys at the top of the keyboard (the ones with the little speaker pictures on them).
Your Toshiba may also have a volume control on the side of the machine.
You must also check the control panel (the icon that says sounds and audio devices). Does it show a sound device when you click on it? Check to see if the "mute" box is checked. If so, uncheck it.
When you click on the Sounds tab, can you see Windows events at the bottom of the screen with little speakers beside them? If so, can you click on one of the events and then click on the right arrow just to the right of the sound events? Is the arrow dark or light when you click on the sound event? If it's dark, you should hear the sound. If it's light, you need to go to Toshiba's website and download the correct sound drivers for your computer.

How increase my mic volume

a) to hell with calling india, they are as dumb as bush is.
b) click start > accessories > entertainment > volume controls. when the volume controls open, click on file (drop down menu) then select recording, then click ok. when the recording volume controls come up. select microphone as the default recording device, and make sure the mute box is not checked. slide the volume control slider most of the way up.
c) if you are using yahoo's call-out, run the audio wizard in yahoo messenger before making call.
d) plug your microphone into other 3.5 mm jacks on computer, and use window's sound recorder to see if the computer is picking up audio through the mic.
e) make sure your microphone's mute switch is not turned on (if applicable).
