First try using windows system restore, which makes windows appear like it did before your problem. do this sequence: start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system restore. run it and look for a calendar date before your problem. If you had system restore turned off, the solution may be long and painful and I simply do not have enough info to get you started in this case, other than to attempt a re-installation of windows XP.

Dimension 4700 my headphones work fine but i cant

Are you have the headphones and speakers both pluged in? When you plug in headphones the speakers get muted. You need to change your sound settings back to your sound card if you use usb headphones. The plug on the front of the 4700 also automatically mutes the speakers.

Good day!
Did your computer installed the audio driver? Usually you know if you have installed the audio driver once you see a speaker icon at the bottom of your monitor or at the task bar. If not installed it first. If there is maybe the speaker was not activated, so you have to double click that icon, at dialog box will appear, click option then properties, activate the speaker.
Hope that solved your problem.

Good day!
Please check the cord of the speaker if it is inserted at the right socket of your unit, or was the audio driver was installed? check if you see a speaker icon at the task bar. If you see an icon (speaker) maybe the speaker was not activated, double click that speaker icon, then, see if the volume was check, or other options, if none click options, properties, try other options by checking the box.
Thanks hope can solve your problem.
