    Have you adjusted the volume(s), not just on your speakers but on the sound device and master volume control from your taskbar as well?

Could be your sound settings. Right-Click on the "speaker" icon at bottom right hand side of your desktop next to the clock and click on sounds. All sound settings are there.

If you can't find the "speaker" icon, you can find sound options in the Control Panel.

How to enable my sound volume

Its sounds like you lost the drivers for your sound card. Search make and model of computer (the specs will tell you what sound card you are using unless you added on sound card then do the same this except for your sound card) and download the drivers.

All I want to do is update my audio driver, Creative AudioPCI (ES1371,ES1373) (WDM) My sound is low on my computer.

There are no drivers for your product:
Are you sure your volume is turned up? If you have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of screen, right click on it and then click on open sound mixer and adjust volume. You can also left click on it and you should see a volume bar you can adjust. Check your card in "device manager" by clicking on "start", lower left of screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icons), find and right click on "device manager", open and click on continue. Click on the box, on right, of "sound audio and game controllers". Do you see a warning, !, ?, or yellow triangle? If so click on it and follow proceedure. Right click on your device(s) one at a time and, in the list you should see "disable". If you see "enable" click on that. Click on the "properties" tab and you should see "this device is working properly". Again check your volume. If all this fails you may want to consider upgrading to a new card. Your card is PCI and, depending on your system, you may be able to upgrade to a card that is supported up to Windows 7.

May volume keys on my keyboard are not responding. My speaker/headset volume is inaudible. whenever I press the volume keys on my keyboard, nothing happens. the same as when i click the volume symbol on...

They are actually two separate issues:
I will assume that you have funtioning speakers or headset.
1) first fix your main audio problem by re-installing your sound card driver that would normally come with your PC/Laptop or (external) Sound Card. This should fix the issue with your software volume control
2) second fix your Keyboard volume control: if after fixing your audio system driver previously, this is still not working, then you will need to re-install your Keyboard 'soft' key driver that control the extended function of your specific keyboard: the driver may also be included as part of your PCLaptop but may also have come with a 'third party' non-orininal keyboard.
Hope it helps & good luck!
