    No audio sounds on speakers. I have had rebooted windows XP software. Tried the Troubleshooting guidelines but to no avail.



    Bluetooth AV Audio is my default device.



    The DirectSound test results: Failure at step 19 (User verification of software): HRESULT = 0x00000000 (error code)



    Is it possible that the cause of my audio problem was this notation i got after the sound test failed - that Digital signer is not digitally signed..whcih means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). That i need to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer.



    Please help me to reolve this problem...i have gone through toubleshooting all day...and until now...got no audio from my speakers. The image in CD/DVD is ok...but again no audio as well.



    Regards,



    Marii

XW4300 Sound Card problem, only working in Windows MP


Most online audio makes use of Adobe Flash, did you check that?
Best is to download and install the latest version of Flash to make sure.

Installing the latest version of DirectX for Windows XP can also help (9.0c).

Please also check for further suggestions about fixing sound problems in Windows XP.
