It sounds like your copy of Top Gun is corrupt. If you downloaded it from the internet, you should try to find another version. If you purchased the game then your best bet would be to call customer service and see how to get your game replaced.

Speakers not working

It may be cause of some problems, at first you should find that what's the source of this problem,so I suggest you some ways:
1. Plug in other speakers to your pc, if it works so the source of problem comes from your speakers and you should fix it, and if it doesn't work, too, it means that your PC and your Sound Card has a problem.
2. If source of problem comes from your PC, be sure that you installed your sound card driver.
3. After you installing sound driver,maybe the problem will terminate! if not, I suggest you reinstall your OS.
Note: You could find your sound card driver by a simple search through Google or Yahoo and find your driver.
Good luck

Windows vista sound not coming-sony vaio

First thing to do is check if your soundcard driver is behaving.

Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager

and check if the soundcard driver is flagged with a yellow exclamation. If this is the case, head off to the Sony site and try to download a new copy of your sound drivers to install.

If this doesn't work, post back here to see what to try next.
