Go back into your device manager. Rught click on your sound card or sound device and say uninstall. After it is uninstalled, don't close device manager. Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.

I have dealt with a similar problem when I installed a new router. Since my router is used for both hard wire and wireless I had to set a password for the router. Im sure you did to because the password secures your network so another party can not get on your network. Your computer should be asking you for that password. If you forgot it then you have a real problem. You may need to contact the manufacturer via telephone to reset the password. They can walk you through this.

As far as the sound card do you have the latest drivers installed? Also if you a web cam installed disconnect it first then install the drivers for the sound card. Some web cams will conflict with sound cards. I realize your having a connection problem with your internet from your email, but this may help you too. Since you recently reinstalled Window when you install of the updates it may see your sound card and install the latest driver for you.

I hope this helps you out.

H sir raheel !

First, try to un-install the driver of your sound card and install the most updated version of it. You will be able to find it in the manufacturer web page.

Second thing you should try, is to connect a different set of speakers, to eliminate the possibility that the problem is with the speakers.

Best of luck,

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.


Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

I lost my CD to install my Web cam


Try this....click on the link, In the blue area click on the file EZCam XP.Zip, scroll immediately to the bottom of the next page and insert the two word shown, they are case sensitive. When the words are accepted a download window will appear. If it doesn't look for the tan information bard that pop up as a security check, they will be across the page just under the browser tool bars, right click on the one that states the download was blocked and allow it, ignore the one that says register. When the download window comes up, click on save and that's it. Activate and install the drivers.

Just bought a logitech web cam..But


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.


Hope this helps. Bud
