    The sound at one time did work, but then I ran a registry fix program on the system. Sound work until I turned the system off and back on.

    It turns out that under msconfig, the system.ini and the win.ini files were not checked. Once checked, the sound worked.

Do your speakers work -- try them on another machine.

Run SndVol32, make sure all of the output channels unmuted and the sliders at the top of the scale.

Additional info:
New computer or old?
Did the sound ever work and just stopped, or never worked?

    What registry fix program?

    It could've messed up your configuration. You may want to remove the sound card driver then restart and let the system "discover" the device again.

My pc is ibm mt-m 82121yu.device manager show its audio driver is updated but sound it doesnot sound

See your sound settings in control panel, make sure that a little speaker icon is not grey, or choose sound device from list (activated one - possibly you are still using sound from motherboard, and must swith to your sound card).

Also make sure that your device has no exclamation signs in device manager, which would mean a bad or invalid driver, go to device manager and update the driver for device if device is yellow.

No sound

1. Are your speakers turned on and plugged into the correct jack on your sound card?

2. Is your sound card recognized by your OS?
    In Windows, press the Windows Key+Pause/Break to bring up the System Properties page.
    CLICK on the Hardware tab, then Device Manager.
Is there a yellow exclamation point under the "Sound, video and game controllers" subheading? If so, you will need to either install/reinstall the sound card's driver or resolve a device conflict. Walk through the options on the device's Properties page.

3. If your speakers are on and your sound card is working properly (as reported by Device Manager), it could simply be that your sound is muted. Open the Control panel (Start>Control Panel)
Open the "Sounds and Multimedia" icon.
Verify the "Show volume control on the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, see below.
If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
Double-click the sound icon in the systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher. 

4. If Windows thinks your Sound card is working properly, your speakers are on and turned up and Windows' software volume control is turned up, go back to Device Manager and Highlight your Sound Card. Press the Delete key on your keyboard and confirm that you do indeed want to remove this device.

Reboot. If your Sound card is functional, Windows will redetect it and offer to install the drivers for it. You may need your original Windows CD to complete this step.

No sound

Yes goto your control panel, open Sytem and see Device Manager. If there is any icon with yellow color in the list, it means you have missing driver. If you have any missing driver that might be for your audio controller. If so then you have to install the driver for the device. Install the driver and enjoy.

Note: If you don't have driver then Ask Me for that with your sound card manufacturer name and model no.
