Hello
so the problem is either that the sound is on mute, or there is no sound device installed (driver missing)

if mute is not the problem then i will need to know the brand and model of the computer and the windows version.

No audio sounds


Hi Jay,


When was this happened, after you've notice that there was No Audio?

Check on the taskbar first, on the lower right corner look for the speaker icon. Check if there is red cross out circle on it. If so, your sound is only muted, Un-check it! Now, If you are using Headset/Monitor try to adjust the volume into higher one(as max as you want) to check if the problem is only on output source/accessories. Or maybe, audio driver was not installed in your computer. Right click your My Computer and hit Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager see if theres is Yellow Question mark beside Speaker icon. Then you must update/install the accurate sound driver for your computer.

Thanks

Sound


Make sure your volume is not on mute. If the speaker icon on your lower right has a red x means its on mute. To test go to control panel and double click sounds and test. If Windows sounds work without speakers then problem is with speakers. Make sure volume is up, make sure its properly connected to correct output jack (usually green or light green). Also make sure speaker power on. If those things are correct check your device manager ( right click my computer) select "manage", click on "device manager" and on right pane check to see if theres any yellow exclamation, question mark or red x on the sound device section. Yellow exclamation or question mark means to update or install correct drivers. Check your speaker box if it comes with a CD.
