Question about Computers & Internet
Hello janconn 9,
1. Check the volume settings in the Volume Control. You can access this by right clicking the Volume icon at the lower right side of your screen. Also make sure you have chosen the correct mixer device under OPTION > PROPERTIES in the Volume Control. Make sure nothing is muted and that you have the necessary panels available - Master Volume, Wave, SW Synth, etc.
2. Install the latest sound card drivers from the manufacturer's website.
3. Finally, check the Device Manager to see that audio is active without any exclamation marks. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Device Manager > Hardware.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
