Question about Intel CELERON 2.66Ghz CPU AND MOTHER BOARD (CPU4266CEL) Motherboard
Do you have onboard audio or a sound-card?
If you are using onboard audio try checking the motherboard's BIOS to ensure that the audio was not disabled. To enter the BIOS watch the screen VERY closely during the startup procedure. Typically the computer will mention something to the effect of, "Press F1 to enter Setup." You are looking for a similar message listing the key to press to enter, "setup." You will have to repeatedly press that key until you enter the BIOS screen. As a hint, if you see the Windows loading screen, you missed the screen notifying you of the key associated with entering setup.
Once you manage to enter the system BIOS, use your keyboard's arrow keys to select different menu options. Using the ENTER button on your keyboard enter some of the menus looking for options on onboard audio or integrated sound. Once you do find such an option check to see if it is disabled or enabled. If you're using onboard audio, you will want to ensure that it is enabled in the BIOS. Once you changed the settings exit the BIOS saving changes.
WARNING: Only change this particular setting! If you do not know what you're doing with the other settings you could potenitally damage or destroy your computer!
If the audio was never disabled in the BIOS and assuming you're using Windows, check your audio controls. To check these settings go to the control panel and open the Sounds and Multimedia (or Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices. Then Sounds and Audio Devices) application. Afterward click on the, "Volume" (Or Audio) tab at the top. Now click on the, "volume" button associated with the, "Sound Playback" section. Now make sure your main audio mix is turned up to your desired level.
If your audio is still not playing try changing the, "Default (Playback) Device" for the, "Sound Playback" section. If you have more than one sound source, you could be using the wrong one. Changing the default playback device might send sound to the audio ports you are currently using thus enabling your sound.
If it's still not working post a comment telling us what methods you tried which failed. I'm sure we can get your sound working. :-)
