I have no sound. maybe my computer has been muted

Check that sound drivers are ok as follows
  • Open your start menu (right-click on the "Start" button and choose "Explore"), and find the "My Computer" icon. Right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the submenu. Click on the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button.
  • Expand the "Sounds, video, and game controllers" heading to find your sound card. The name will depend on what sound card is installed on your PC. It will most likely have a name containing "audio." It should look something similar to the example above. You'll know immediately if there is a major driver error because an exclamation point (!) will show over the card's icon.
  • Double-click on the name of the sound card to open a new window. In the new properties window click on the "Drivers" tab. If there is no "Drivers" tab then you chose the wrong sound device. Go back and try again. On the "Drivers" tab, click the "Driver Update" button. Follow the Wizard's onscreen instructions to update your driver. You can also contact the manufacturer of your PC for the most recent audio drivers. They can usually be found online.

The best thing I would advise you to do, is this:

Uninstall the audio driver completely first from your system,

Then Connect your system to the internet,

Right-Click on my computer icon,

Go to the device manager on your system,

Right click on the icon specifying the audio driver(which was not

Select Update driver software,

On the options that comes up, select update software online

automatically, then wait for it to do the remaining.

After a while, it will show 'Installing Device driver update'.

Just wait for it to finish.

Then click on finish/ok/close.

I can guarantee you that your audio will work perfectly after that.

Hope this helps you out.

Kindly let me know how it goes.

Thanks for using fixya.

There is a problem with audio drivers and showing as ' media not found for this drivers'...

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 > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start.
Now next you can do is
If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware. Look for anything with an exclamation mark beside it, or to do with sound. If you see anything, right click it, check it isn't Disabled then select "Properties." The next window should have some tabs along the top, the one you are looking for is "Driver," you should now see an "Update driver" button.
Check ur sound card information by doing this
Click on start menu
Click on Run
Type dxdiag, enter
Click on the sound tab
There is button of test direct sound click on this check if there is sound

Check ur registry. Check if the sound registry key is enabled or disabled. There could be an error in registry, run registry cleaner to scan for reginout to solve ur issue
