You'd've muted the audio device.. if its xp, double click the volume icon in the systems tray ( right end of the taskbar) and check whether the wave device is muted.. if not, chek whether ur media player software is fine.. if its not fine chek with some other media player.. if all of them are righ, reinstalling the audio drivers will help you..

I have no sound and i can not see the volume control


It's a possible problem with the driver or the sound card may be disabled. To check if the sound card is disabled or drivers not installed,
1. Right click on "My Computer" select "Properties"

2. Click "Device Manager"
11_23_2011_1_32_59_am.jpg
3. From the list, you should see a "Sound Controller" and if you click on the drop down arrow beside it, you should see the audio driver installed(ex. High Definition Audio Device... audio driver name may vary depending on the brand of the laptop).
11_23_2011_1_33_43_am.jpg
4. Right click on the sample "High Definition Audio Device" then select Properties. If it says device is working properly then there shouldn't be any problem with your audio.
11_23_2011_1_34_25_am.jpg
** If the Sound Controller is NOT installed properly you need to download the Audio drivers from the support site of your Dell computer, http://support.dell.com , be sure to select the correct model of your laptop and operating system of your computer. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers, Audio should work fine not unless it is the hardware itself that is damaged.
**Also don't forget to check if there are other external audio output devices connected to your computer, please do test if working properly.
Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

My sound card on my desktop PC is not working


If it is on board sound then first check in bios that sound audio device is enable. For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 to enter in bios then go to pci configuration and make sure audio is enable then save settings and exit. If it was already enable then make sure audio driver is installed and working fine. You can check it in device manager. Right click on my computer icon then click on property then click on hardware->device manager then you can see all drivers list then make sure audio driver is installed. If still same issue then uninstall audio driver from start menu->control panel->add remove programs then reinstall driver from disk. If you haven't driver disk then download audio driver from desktop menufecturer web sites then install then it will work fine. If you have sound card installed in PCI slot of cpu then open cpu cabinet then reconnect sound card in another pci slot on motherboard then reinstall audio driver then it will work fine. Also make sure there is not any loose connection on sound jack and speaker cable.Make sure in control panel sound property there are not any mute sound. Play song file in window media player and make sure sound is not mute on it. Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
