Hi, you need to check your audio device driver is installed or not. Go to desktop ,right click and select manage. Now click on device manager and check for yellow symbol on Sound,video and game controller . If you have yellow symbol on it then you need to install audio driver for your PC.
control panel sounds and audio,volume you can adjust the volume or advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers or you might have to uninstall then reinstall either the driver or the sound devices control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustmentsthere or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers or right click select properties to either troubleshoot,uninstall,rollback driver hope this helps
Go to the Start Menu. Go to Control Panel. Locate the Icon "Device Manager". Once the dialogue Box "Device Manager" appears, locate and click on "Sound, Video, and Game Contollers".
Click on the + button to the left of this and double click on each controller. When the dialogue box opens, go to Driver and select "update driver".
After updating each driver (if update not available a message will appear telling you that you have the most current or best currently installed).
Also, if prompted, select to check Internet automatically. Do not search the computer files: you will not find them here (unless you manually installed drivers, and haven't enabled them yet).
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this does not change your video status. Here is one other thing you can try:
Update your Adobe version. This is usually the program that is used when viewing videos online. Also, when attempting to play a video - watch at the top of the screen for a yellow bar - usually a message will appear alerting you of this, which indicates you need to enable the Active X for this particular website. I doubt this is the case, but I often run into this, and very seldom notice this yellow bar. The message does not always appear so be alert of this just incase.
Being this is a desktop, you may need to upgrade the video card as well. You shouldn't have to: You can also locate the video card installed in your computer through the Device Manager and update the drivers for it as well.
Let me know how or if any of this helps.

Here is a solution : On desktop go to :: my
computer----mouse right click----properties----system----device
management. There you can find symbols for all devices that are already
installed on your system . Scroll down until you find the definition of
your audio device software , for example , if your audio driver
software is a realtek then right mouse click on it , then you'll find
disable , just disable it and then uninstall the audio driver software
! After that you should restart your system . When system started again
, install the software again , and restart the system once again . Now
you should hear the operating system starting tone .. If you didn't
hear the tone , then go to device management again and enable the audio
device once again . good luck . rate if useful please !
My guess is you are hearing a telephone ring .wav file that is being played as an alert for some software application you have installed on your system. Perhaps an email account is trying to let you know that new mail has arrived, or some such. Are you getting any kind of pop up notification window in the lower right portion of the screen when the ringing sound is played? If so, find out what program is notifying you, and go to the options/preferences settings for that program and you will probably find a sound alert option that can be turned off. Southwest airlines has a ding feature like this that alerts people when a flight they have set to search on is available, for example. The only other place I can think to look is in your event viewer, (Rt.click My computer,choose Manage). Perhaps you'll see a corresponding entry under applications, but this seems unlikely to me. You need to figure out which program is alerting you.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
Hi, Ok so is your sound a built in part of your motherboard or do you have a separate sound card.
Have you been able to check the device in your device manager?
To do this go to "Start" then to "Control Panel" or "Settings" then to "System". A window will pop up with several "Tabs" across the top. Choose "Hardware" and at the top of that page click on "Device Manager" scroll down till you see where it lists your "Sound" devices. If you have a yellow alert symbol or a red exclamation symbol then there is either a clash or an error with the driver for the sound device.
If you have the installation disc you can re-install the driver which should fix your problem.
If there are no errors in the "Device Manager" then there would be some other problem, possibly the device has failed, if it is on board (built in to the motherboard) then the easiest sloution is to buy a separate sound card and install that. If it is already a card then replacing it is still the option.
Another thing, and this may sound silly but is often the case, have you checked that nobody has accidentally "Muted" your sound? Down in the bottom righthand corner of your screen you should have a small speaker icon. If you click it, it will open your volume control which at the bottom has a mute box that should be unticked. If it is ticked then all your sound will be muted.
Another silly things also is to check your speakers make sure all cables and power is ok and that the volume is up and not down.
Please don't be offended I have to ask the dumb questions to eliminate what might be a very simple problem and you would be amazed what some people do by accident.
Please let me know how you go and if I can be of further assistance at all. If you do not have a driver then that is usually not a problem we can find them we just need to know what type of device you have ok.
