I had my computer speakers since 2005 i had windows xp and i just got my computer fix and now i vista home premium and i went too the media player and i played some music and next time i played it didnt...


Is your pc volume turned up, if so you say you had your pc fixed did they do an upgrade or anything like that if so then they may have altered your sound settings or not even installed the sound drivers.
first check that the sound is on and the speakers are plugged into the correct socketon the pc,
If this is ok then check to make sure your drivers are nstalled and using the sound card you have installed you will have to goto control panel then double click on the sound button check to make sure making sure your speakers are enabled, And check your properties you shouls see your sound card listed in the properties section.

Sound is not coming from attached speakers I have window xp and ''zoltrixound'' speakers


There can be more than one reason, why the computer can’t play any sounds. These are discussed below:
So, where do you start, when you can’t hear any sounds from your computer?
Before we start with the solutions, did you try the simplest solution first? Reboot or restart the computer. The sounds may just work after a reboot.
Can you hear the Windows startup sounds from the computer? If you can hear the Windows startup sounds, the sound card is working fine. If you can’t hear any startup sounds, enable the System Sounds in the Control Panel, if they are disabled. If you aren’t able to enable the system sounds and they are grayed out, you may need to install the sound driver.
Are you trying to play an audio CD, and not getting any sound? If you can hear the System Sounds, but can’t hear anything from the audio CD, even though your audio player software tells that it’s playing the disc, the problem is most likely with the digital cable that goes from the CD/DVD driver to the sound card (or to the motherboard).
Are the speakers connected to the proper sound port / jack, at the back of the computer? Are they powered ON? External speakers generally have a separate power adapter, which plugs into the wall socket or any other power source. Is the speaker volume control, set to a comfortable level? If not, turn it to the middle position.
If in doubt, test your speakers by connecting them to another sound device like CD/DVD player or a radio/tape player, or any sound source. If you can hear sounds from the speakers, they are fine.
Check that the speaker pin is connected to the green jack on the back of the computer. Also, check that the sound (check speaker icon in the system tray) isn’t muted. Such a simple thing, which can happen accidentally, can confuse some people when they can’t hear sounds from their computers. This can get overlooked because the speaker icon may be lost between many other icons. Click it and un-mute the sound, if it’s muted.
Note: If you can’t see the speaker icon in the system tray, you may need to enable it from the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, double-click “Sound and Audio Devices” and check the box that says “Place volume icon in the taskbar” and click OK.
Try plugging in a pair of headphones in place of the speakers, to check whether you can hear anything. Play a song or music CD or any sound file, which you may have on the computer. If you don’t have one handy, you can run a command to test your sound:
Click the Start button, and then click Run (or Search, in Windows 7 / Vista). Type the following command and then press the Enter key: dxdiag
Click on the ‘Sound’ tab to see the details of your sound card. You can also test your sound card from this tab. Note the name of the sound card and the manufacturer, on a piece of paper.
If you can’t see the name of the sound driver, or aren’t able to hear the sound by using the ‘Test DirectSound’ button, or you get an error, the problem may be with the sound driver. If the sound worked sometime ago and now it isn’t working for some reason, the simplest solution for re-installing the sound driver is to do a System Restore. Restore the system to a date that you know, when your sound worked. Check out the following links for a short tutorial on System Restore
Note: Current documents, files and e-mail are not affected by System Restore. If you get an error like “Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored“, undo the last action by selecting “Undo my last restoration”.
Here’s a youtube video on how to restore a system with System Restore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mU5yqvye57E
Here are step-by-step tutorials on System Restore:
For Windows XP: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/using-system-restore-in-xp/ http://www.5starsupport.com/faq/xp-system-restore.htm
For Windows 7 or Vista: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/ http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76905-system-restore-how.html
For more information about System Restore, visit the following links: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/systemrestore.mspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Restore http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/System-Restore-frequently-asked-questions
If System Restore didn’t help or you get a message that System Restore couldn’t be completed, try the following:
Start the Device Manager (Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc and hit the Enter key). In Device Manager, Click the + sign next to “Sound, video and game controllers”. See that the sound driver that you noted from dxdiag above, is listed.
Doube-click this sound driver. Device Manager should give a status message that the driver is working fine. If the driver isn’t there or if it shows a yellow exclamation mark, shows under other devices, or gives any other kind of status message, reinstall the driver. In any case, it doesn’t harm to uninstall and reinstall the driver.
From this sound driver properties page, you may also click the Troubleshoot button, to open the Sound Troubleshooter in the Windows Help and Support Center.

Computer won't allow sound through the speaker


Hello,

It is important to note the several components (Both hardware and software) must be properly installed and configured for the Sound Subsystem to work properly. I will attempt to list some of the major areas of concern and hopefully point you in the right direction (I am assuming that your system is less then 3 years old and that you are running Windows XP, much of this will apply to Windows 7 as well).

It is important to note that you should be able to hear sounds from your computer’s speaker – this is where I would begin trouble shooting.

  1. First, ensure that your sound logic is not ‘muted’.

  1. The PC Sound Logic must be properly recognized by the ‘Plug and Play’ Subsystem of the CPU/Mother Board to function correctly.

  1. If the “Sound, Video and Game Controllers” area is empty, then most likely your problem is that your system does not have the correct ‘device drivers’ for the Sound Logic that is installed.

  1. If the Plug and Play Subsystem has properly indentified and installed each of the “Sound, Video and Game Controllers” modules, then test the functionally by going to the

If you do not hear anything and you have confirmed that Mute is not selected and the sound level is high, then:

1. Confirm that you are using the latest device drivers.
2. Go into Device Manager and delete all of the components under the “Sound and Audio Devices” Icon.
3. Reboot your system and allow the Plug and Play Subsystem to rediscover and install each of the sound components.
4. Confirm that all of the Sound components are installed.
5. Retest your Sound Subsystem by using Step #4 above.

If the problem persists, then it is time to suspect the possibility of faulty hardware or a faulty Mother Board.

I hope this helps,

Windows media player not working


If you can't Find the Driver For your card, it is HERE.

This Solution would only help you if you're running Windows: XP or 2000...
As the Driver I found, ONLY, Supports WinXP or 2000.

You can try this:
Go to your Device manager, and Double-click [-Sound, video, and Game controllers-

Then: See if your sound card is listed in that category. (If there is an exclamation point or anything under that listing, then reply back with what DEVICE it lists it for.

If there is one.. [an ("!"),] and you are sure that it's shown specifically for your sound-card device, then I would Suggest that you uninstall it. [Right-Click on the Device>Uninstall.]

AND Download the driver FOUND above, and iNSTALL that, and then Reply Back with your results..

I Hope this helps a little..
