Try
1. Remove the audio driver and reinstall it. (My Computer right-click > Properties > Device Manager > Audio Devices > Reinstall Drivers)
2. Check if some other software which you are using is controlling the audio driver. (Restart in Safe mode and see if the sound is working)
3. Take expert help from a technician..You sound card might have stopped working.

go to control panel-sound-default audio device & check which device is enabled as default device. In case of HD audio remove the speaker jack & reinsert, if that port is selected as default audio then you should get an immediate message saying 'audio jack plugged in'.

Sounds not working on emails.


Do you mean that when you receive an email or open a program you want to have a sound?

If that is the case, go to Control Panel ->Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices ->Sound, and Audio Devices ->Sound, and Audio Devices Properties and configure your sound schemes.

Hope it helps.

No sound , sound drivers are working


Most common reasons for this trouble are:
  • Such kind of troubles arise after some device / software is installed which tries to gain control as default sound device.
  • Also while un-installation of certain softwares, some shared files are removed. At times some important shared file can be deleted which causes troubles with working of sound drivers.
  • While installing certain games, it tries to gain control of sound or video drivers and may accidentally harm these driver softwares.
Lets see the ways to fix such troubles

Step1 : First of all check what is your default audio device setting. For this, open Control Panel > Sounds and audio devices, open Audio tab as shown in picture below.

See that the Device selected is your sound-card or on-board audio device. It should not be blank or some modem device. Set the Default sound playback and sound recording device correctly from the drop down menu. If your device is not there in this list see the step 2.

Step2: If the step 1 is not successful, it means that your sound device driver software has become either corrupt or has been accidentally un-installed. In such case, install the sound driver from the sound-card/mother-board driver CD. You can also download the latest driver if you don’t have the driver CD. After you install the driver, restart your computer, and then check the settings as in step 1 again

Audio problem on my Win XP computer


Their is a chance that either the sound device or driver is missing. Reload the sound software. If you don't have it look at the mane and model of you computer or sound card make andf model(mother board it on board sound) and download the drivers nd sofrtware from their website.

Sound drive is not installed or not working properly


Click Start > Settings (classic menu) or directly to > Control Panel > System,

Click the Hardware tab at the top. Click Device Manager and find the category "Sound, video and game controllers".

Click the plus sign and see if there is an Audio controller listed or anything with a yellow highlighted exclamation point in front or a red X.

Click any item mentioned in the previous paragraph and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Click Okay or yes to removing the device. Remove all items one by one that meet the criteria in the previous paragraph.

Click okay to close out of Device manager then reboot the computer.

If Device manager has no audio devices listed at all, and you are sure you actually have an audio connection on the back of your computer (sound card or integrated sound), then it is likely the sound card or circuitry has failed.

Let me know if this works or if you have additional information/questions for me.
