Re: sound

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.

the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer

hope this helps

Volume icon

If the volume control is all grayed out, locked like you said then your sound driver is missing or corrupt. You will need to re-install the sound driver.

Have football manager 2010 it installed fine but wont run!

There are two different versions of the game available for PC and MAC, a 'strawberry' and 'vanilla' version, with both providing half a season of gameplay.
OS: Windows XP/Vista/W7
Processor: XP: 1.4GHz or Faster / Vista/W7 : 2.0GHz or Faster
Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core, AMD Athlon
Memory: XP: 512MB RAM / Vista/W7: 1.0GB RAM
Hard Drive Space: 2GB
DVD-Drive: 4x Speed
Video Card: 128MB *Supported Chipsets : (see below)
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
Directx: Version 9.0c (included)
LAN: TCP/IP compliant
Input: Keyboard, Mouse

*Supported Chipsets - Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater. Earlier cards may only display 2D Match Viewer Mode and are not supported. Earlier cards may require the DirectX 9.0 SDK is installed to run the game. To download DirectX Software Development Kit click here.

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported.

Intel Processor, OS X 10.5, NVidia Geforce 7300 GT / ATI X1600 Radeon

1. Right click on the game icon, select Properties and click the tab Compatibility,
2. Select the proper compatibility mode for your PC,
3. Run the game.
This may solve your problem.
While many different errors and problems may occur while attempting to run a game within Windows (from corruption in graphics and sound to black screens on loading or crashing) the majority can be quite easily fixed with some input from the user. To see General Windows Troubleshooting (for crashes, graphic and sound issues etc) to solve the problem click here.
Using Daemon tools software you can mount the game image (virtual drive) and by installing the game you can manage to play. Click here to download Daemon Tools.

I hope this helps you.

Dektop icons doesnt show up! cant open control panel!

Sounds like something viral to me. If you are able to connect to the Internet I would suggest downloading and running a tool called combofix. Information on how to use it and links to download are here. I've used this on several XP systems to get rid of some nasty stuff, but never had to try it on Vista yet. If the trouble is not from a virus but just because something else has thoroughly screwed up the registry, you might have to restore your system.

Sound decoder

Go to control panel --> system --> hardware >> device manager.
If you have problem with driver, there will be a big yellow question mark in your "audio controller". If there is problem, you have to reinstall your audio-driver.
If it is ok, then back to control panel -->sounds and audio devices. In tab "volume", you can see if your system might be "mute" (do uncheck box of mute). And if your volume icon is not in the taskbar, do check the checkbox of "place volume icon in the taskbar".
You can also modify the speaker performance here.
