My computer works great but I have no sound

try to play any music theres a sample music under the music folder

if you are getting an error message that theres no sound device available then you have to reinstall the drivers for your sound card

if you are not getting any error message, check if its not in mute

if its unmute try to use a headset and try to play music

if you are using a speaker check if the cable is properly connected (normally its plugged in to green port at the back) and its turned on , make sure that the volume is set to middle.

if still not working while its plugged in the back try to plug a known good speaker in the front port
