Though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..
assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..n directx installed..
check if Audio device is enabled in bios..

howevr, download microsoft kb888111 update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine (like google)..
download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz in .exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a .inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack....

if not fixed try using a standby pci snd card (in such case it'll b a confirmed case of ur system board is likely to b defective)..
but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor....

Im not sure if its the computer or the speakers but i cant hear anything?and there on and look fine,just cant hear anything?


Make sure the speaker connection is connected in back of the cpu. Check device manager to see that the audio and all hardware is working properly. Open up sound from the control panel classic view sound to see if sound is working. Just a couple of ideas.

No sound...anyplace from anywhere


What it has done is replace the motherboard sound chip drivers. You may be able to get them back as follows: -
Go 'Start' - 'Control Panel' -'Sound/Audio Devices'
Select 'Hardware' then click on 'Realtek AC 97' when it opens slect the Driver tab and then 'Roll Back Driver'. reboot and you should have your sound back. Do the same sort of thing with anything else that has gone missing using 'Control Panel' - 'System'- ' Device Manager' and sorting anything with a yellow warning triangle next to it

Hi suddenly my sound is not working in my newly bought laptop model is compaq presario cq 40 newly bought


Try this:

Shut down the laptop, disconnect anything plugged into it, remove the battery and hold down the power switch for 15 seconds (with no power or anything attached to laptop).

Reconnect A/C power and power it back up. See if that works for you.

If not, when you get booted into Window, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore.

Follow the prompts and choose a bold date back to a time prior to when you lost sound. When it reboots, you will probably have sound.

Let me know if you need further help.

No Sound/drivers fine/possible board issue


Yes; sad to say, but your board probably will need replacing. Spilling drinks on your computers, esp laptops, isn't a good thing to do. I have never experienced spilling anything on my computers personally, but I know other people why have, and the motherboard is what they had to replace.

No sound from my VR-507


My Kenwood1.gif VR-507 had been working great. I hadn't changed anything. I hadn't even moved it. It just suddenly stopped producing sound. It didn't just stop while it was on. I had turned it off and when I turned it back on, nothing. I tried running the speaker setup to see if it would output pink noise, I could hear the test sound, but I couldn't hear any audio from the TV or DVD player..

Help. :-(
