You did not specify the brand and model # of your computer. Maybe the driver is the problem. Get the name and model number of your computer. Go to the manufacturers website. You should see an area where you can download the sound card driver. You can also comment back the name & model #

Volume icon lost. Sound is too loud


Hi Ruth,

I'm assuming that you use Windows Xp as a missing volume control icon in your task bar is a common problem with XP.

Click on the link below and scroll down to "Resolution" for a step by step guide to put back your volume control icon:

How can i get sound in my pc.. i have lost the sound or volume


Check you have not accidently muted the sound on the desktop icon ( speaker icon)
Check the (green?) line connector is plugged into the correct port on the sound card or chip
Check that the audio driver appears in the sounds tab in the control panel (double click sound icon)

If the driver is missing, re-install it

Also while in there, check the tabs for the volumr mixer etc and see volume is set at max for line out

If those steps fail, check the speakers are getting power and the indicator light is on

Finally, test the soundcard with another speaker, or use headphones if no speakers available

SOUND DOES NOT WORK EVEN WITH SPEAKERS


First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application

I lost sound on my computer


Sometimes a movie will not have sound if you didn't install a good codec pack  get k-lite codec pack off the internet  sometimes your audio drivers are not installed or need to be uninstalled  then reboot.  To find your audio drivers either go to your computer makers site or use UniBlue DriverScanner or Driver Magician etc   check your device manager for yellow exclamation marks (which would show that you are missing drivers)  sometimes you can have windows look for updates to the device if you rightclick and choose update driver software  If this is too difficult for you  i can fix it remotely if you install filetopia and find me at All Good Things room  I'm The_MacGyver
