First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start.
Now next you can do is
If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware. Look for anything with an exclamation mark beside it, or to do with sound. If you see anything, right click it, check it isn't Disabled then select "Properties." The next window should have some tabs along the top, the one you are looking for is "Driver," you should now see an "Update driver" button.
Check ur sound card information by doing this
Click on start menu
Click on Run
Type dxdiag, enter
Click on the sound tab
There is button of test direct sound click on this check if there is sound


Check ur registry. Check if the sound registry key is enabled or disabled. There could be an error in registry, run registry cleaner reg in out to scan for errors.

The sound isn't working on my pc. I have checked speakers on a different pc and they work fine. Have you any idea what the problem could be?


Have you checked the sound driver? Does the sound work with headphones?
If the sound driver is correct and working there will be, when checking the sound mixer, moveable virtual slider controls.
If it works on headphones, the headphone socket may be faulty.
The likelyhood of no sound due to a power problem is not very high.

have you tried to disable the on board sound? if your sound card is working okay as you say then it wont matter about on board audio. just make sure your speakers are connected to the sound card, not the motherboard audio.

No sound coming from computer. speakers work tested on other stereo


The speakers may work but you probably have no sound driver. It is a sound driver that makes sound come from your pc. Type in your computers name and model on google and download drivers for your pc. If it is not drivers then your sound card is faulty.
