The first thing thta comes to mind, have you turned on mute or lowered the volume? Double click the speaker icon on the bottom right corner of your screen and make sure that the mute box is not checked off, and that the volume is turned up all the way.
Also have you ever updated the drivers for your sound card? If not than follow these easy instructions to update the sound card drivers.

  1. Click 'start'
  2. right click 'my computer'
  3. click 'manage'
  4. on the left side click 'device manager'
  5. on the right side click the + sign beside 'sound,video and game controlers'
  6. than right click each line that has the words 'sound or audio' in it, and click 'update driver'

No sound in chat rooms with windows7 64bit


With the Yahoo! Messenger application, you can chat with friends and family over the Internet, and you can also use the contacts you have from your Yahoo! email account. In addition, the application allows you to enter chat rooms, play games, share pictures and transfer files. Using the preferences on your Yahoo! Messenger, you can enable the application to play a sound when you receive a new message, and you can also have your own customized sounds played.

1.Open the Yahoo! Messenger application on your computer. Click on the "Preferences" option from top toolbar menu.
2.Click on the "Alerts and Sounds" option from the Preferences window on the left side of the application.
3.Click on the box next to the "Enable alert sounds" fields and then click on the "I receive a message in Yahoo! Mail" option below the "Alert me when" heading.
4.Click on the box next to the "Playing a sound" field below the "Alert me by" heading and then click on the "Browse" button.
5.Select a sound file from your computer that you want to be used with Yahoo! Messenger and then click on the "OK" button.
6.Click on the "OK" button again and the sound you choose will be enabled in the Yahoo! Messenger application.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Windows is toast, my friend. I hope you have a good backup, and recovery disks. It's probably malware, but the bottom line is Windows needs to be reinstalled.

Mobile phone - message tone alert?


I do not have the phone or the manual...however here are my recommendations from the phones i have owned.

In the phone settings there should be a sound tab. This allows you to select rigntones and alert tones and alarms. Also there are different profiles that you can select ie: Normal- will play ringtones and all audible alerts and alarms...Silent: Will vibrate only and not play any sound ( even though you have selected a certain sound to play)....hope this helps
