Question about Olivetti Computers & Internet
The two most frequent sources for the loss of sound are bad connections and corrupted drivers.
To check connections make sure wires are not faulty. Check for crimps or damaged areas. Try a different set of speakers to see if they work. Make sure connecting plugs are placed in proper hole for sound out/speaker on back of sound card. If these check out and still no sound reseat the sound card [if not on mainboard sound] by turning off the unit, opening it [making sure to be grounded so no static electric discharge can damage the unit or its peripherals, then dismount the sound card from its slot after disconnecting all plugs attached to it, checking its connections for corrosion [this can be cleaned with a standard pencil eraser if any is noted], and reseating and securing it in its slot. Restore all connections and turn the unit back on and check for sound.
To deal with corrupted drivers check "Device Manager" to see if the sound card is showing a "bang" next to it [a black exclamation point in a yellow circle]. While not always present when drivers have become corrupted if it is that is most certainly the issue. Look up the support site for the manufacturer of the sound card or the chipset if it is on mainboard sound, and then download the most current drivers from the site. Installing them should overwrite any corrupted files and correct the problem if a corrupted driver is the source of the issue.
