It's possible your volume has been muted. Look down where your clock is, if there's a small speaker icon, click it once. A menu will pop up with the volume controls, and if the "mute" box is checked all you have to do is uncheck it. If the slider is at the bottom of the box, slide it up until you have sound.

If there is no speaker icon, do this: Click Start. Click Control Panel. Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. This will bring up the sound control, and you need to check the box beside "Place volume icon in the taskbar". Also, there's an option to mute the volume above that; uncheck the box if it's already checked. This will keep the speaker icon down by your clock so you can adjust the volume anytime.

If this doesn't solve your problem, check that your speakers are plugged into the right hole in the back of your PC (not in the microphone jack). There will be little pictures beside each of the jacks so you know which is which. And if your speakers themselves have volume knobs/buttons, make sure they're turned up.

If none of this is helping you, your sound card may have come loose or become defective, so you should have a professional inspect it and possibly replace it. But it's very, very likely that your volume is muted or your speakers are unplugged. You can try using headphones if you think your speakers may be defective!

Hope this helps!

I have a 2004 chevy trail blazer ext 4 wheel drive does not work used it last week and was fine

When you switch from 2HI to 4HI, you should hear two distinctive sounds from under the truck, one is the transfer case actuator and the other is the front differential actuator. If you hear both and you still do not have power going to the front wheels, then there is a problem with the front disconnect assembly.

Cannot get laptop microphone working

Double click on the little speaker icon on the Desktop toolbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure he microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder or whatever application you are using and try to record. If this does not work I would get an external microphone plug it into your laptop and try recording again. If the external mic works then I would think that you internal microphone is not working. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.
