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.

Sound


Have you ever had sound? If so, when did it stop working? If it stopped around the time that you changed something in your system, like installing new software or hardware, then that's likely the cause.

Did you go to start>programs>control panel. Double-click on "Sound" and verify that nothing is muted and the volume sliders are all turned up?

If you know the last time the sound worked, do a system restore previous to that point. Keep in mind, a system restore will remove any software installations you've done, but it will not delete any files or email. Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Go through the prompts and select a date previous to the time your sound stopped working.

Hooked up to TV but can't get the sound leads to work. No sound from TV?? Can anyone advise please? Lorna x x x


u cant get sound from TV linked to PC.....as the PC's sound system use a RF connection...it does not have a amplifyer...the sound system travel in two formats....non-amplified and amplified....the sound sent from PC/Laptop it's already amplified...but the TV connector can receive only non-amplified signal(say from a DVD player, camcorder, music system etc)...it cant process the signal from PC/laptop......you can connect ordinary speakers ment for laptop to the sound out jack in the PC/laptop and use the TV to receive the video signal....from PC
hope this helps

Laptop speakers not working!!!


If you are using Windows Vista.
Step 1: Click on Start then type Sound and select sound from the list.
Step 2: Under Playback Tab please select Speakers and Dual Headphones and click on Set Default.
Step 3: Then click on Apply then sound from your notebook should work.

If these steps do not work then the best option is to re-install the sound driver'.

The sound isnt working at all


When did the problem start? Did it ever work? What operating system are you using?

If the problem occured recently, you might be able to use System Restore to get it working again. Within Windows, click on Start then Run. Type msconfig then click the System Restore Button. Choose a date when the sound worked.

It would help to know if the problem persists, so that a possible hardware glitch can be troubleshot
