    What brand of PC? i suspect your sound card has an error but you can use your PC testing utility to test the card, how you access this, depends on your make of PC.

Go to the manufacturer of the pc and/or the soundcard, download the soundcard driver.
Goto the control panel - system - hardware - device
Look for any devices that have a red or yellow mark next to it. Uninstall the device and reboot. When the system detects the device, load the driver U downloaded. If U have more than one device with a red or yellow mark, download the drivers for those devices and repeat the above.

My acer laptop cdrom does not boot start at all


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the CDROM driver via the device manager.

Right Click on Computer. Click on Manage. Go to Device Manager.

Right Click on the CDRom driver. Uninstall. Restart the computer so that windows will generate the driver. Update it. You can either go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the updated version of the driver or do it automatically by using RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

On your Skype menu go to "Tools" at the top of your menu.
Select "Options" and then select "Audio Settings".
There is a drop down menu for "Microphone".
Try selecting each option until you see the "Volume Bar" start indicating that your mic is working.

Thinkpad R51 Audio Driver


I had this exact same problem. Try this:

Above the keyboard are three hard keys for volume (down, up, and mute). The mute button only mutes, it does NOT unmute. To unmute, push the volume up button a few times. Now try your sounds again.

I was very confused because the hard mute key does not affect the GUI at all (you don't see the little speaker with the red x in the notification area). Hope this helps!

No sound on the PC


If you have the cd for the motherboard, you can install the driver for your sound. Look in device manager under sound video and game controllers, and find your sound card. I had the same problem when I put in a new hard drive, I didnt have any sound so I had to install the driver from the cd. If you don't have the cd, you can always find the driver on the web. a good site to check is www.driver.com

No sound on the PC


Hi,
Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.

In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.

ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using

Thanks
