Can you use your SYSTEM RESTORE function? You can find it:
Start> all programs> accessories> system tools>system restore.

If this doesn't fix it, I always fall back on Realtek Audio sound drivers. I've never found anything that Realtek wouldn't get the sound working on yet. You can google it and download it for free.

Short of that, it sounds like you will need to restore your sound drivers to make your sound work.

Tip

How to setup your Sound.


Install the drivers for the sound device. If the sound hardware came with an installation disc, insert the CD into the drive and follow the prompts. If the sound device does not have a disc, contact the manufacturer or download the drivers from the manufacturer's website. To check the system for sound devices, go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "Sound and Audio Devices." The primary sound device will be shown in the top of this window. Step 2 Check the "Audio Devices" properties window for muted volume or the volume bar set to minimum. Either of these will cause the sound to not work. Step 3 Check "Device Manager" for improper settings or problems with the device. Go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "System," then select the "Hardware" tab, then press the "Device Manager" button. A list of hardware will be displayed. Audio devices are under "Sound Video and Game Controllers." The device will be titled the same as it appeared in the "Sound and Audio Devices" window in the "Control Panel." By double clicking on the device, it will display the properties. There is a selection at the bottom of the first tab that will display whether the device is "Enabled" or "Disabled." Any conflicts will also be given in the form of small exclamation marks. Step 4 Check the volume knob on the physical speakers.

Have a emachine w4885 desktop. cannot get any sound. I is teling me I have no audio device, i used to have on. can anyone help, i need my music


hello, if it was working before, here is few things you can check, first lets verify that for some reason it is not driver issue, go in device manager and make sure there is no yellow excalmation mark in front of multimedia/audio device, if yes, follow this link and reinstall drivers and test again
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Audio/Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.5170_XPx86_A.zip?acerid=633934348147566657&Step1=Desktop&Step2=W Series&Step3=W4686&OS=X01&LC=en&BC=eMachines&SC=PA_6E
if no excalmation mark is there and you do see your audio card in the list, try this:
go to control panel, double click the"sounds and audio devices", then click on "sounds" tab and make sure "Windows default" is selected under "sound scheme". Now go to "Audio" tab and make sure under "Sound Playback" your sound card is listed as default device. finally go to "volume" tab and make sure "Mute" is NOT checked, and "place volume icon in the taskbar" IS checked. Click "APPLY" then OK.
test your sound.
hope this helps, let me know if you any more questions.

I bought a used GX520 and the volume does not work. There is no volume icon on the lower right corner. Under sounds and audio devices it says ''no audio device'', and I can't change anything. I own another...


sounds like ( no pun intended) your missing the audio drivers or controllers--right-click on MY COMPUTER then PROPERTIES then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER and check if there are any yellow or red "X"s next to anything (you sound driver) right click and select update driver (you need to be connected to the internet)

Speakers are plugged in correctly, lights on but still no sound


Check your output jack again and make sure its on the green jack
and also check your speaker wires, if okay then check this;

For Windows XP;
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Sounds and Audio Devices
  3. On the Volume tab under "Device volume" check that sound is NOT muted
  4. Adjust volume control
  5. Check "Speaker Setup" under "Speaker settings" under the "Advanced" button
For Vista:
  1. Control Panel
  2. Sounds
  3. Select Speakers then properties
  4. Make sure device is enabled
  5. Test sound
  6. Adjust volume controls
Under Device Manager make sure that under your sound card that you dont have a yellow exclamation. Yellow exclamation indicates you need to install the correct driver.

No sound


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.
