    What computer do you have? Which operating system are you using (e.g. XP, Vista)? Is the sound built-in (on the motherboard|), a plug-in PCI card or a plug-in USB module? Has it ever worked? If sp, what happened to stop it working (what were you doing with the PC at the time?

    Have you checked they physical connection from the speakers to the sound card socket? Can you test the speakers by plugging them into something else (e.g. iPod, CD player)?

WINDOW MEDIA PLAYAR NO SOUND


***Codec issue If only some of the movies you're playing do not get sound it's likely you have a codec issue. codec downloads.
***Check volume settings Often no sound in the Microsoft Windows Media Player is corrected by adjusting the volume controls at the bottom of the window. Moving the slider from the left to the right will turn up the volume, if all the way to the left the volume is turned all the way down.

***Make sure not muted In addition to the volume slider, make sure the sound icon is not pressed in. This button is the mute button and will mute the sound.

***Sound Driver Drivers for your sound card download this http://www.devicedoctor.com/device-doctor-download.php
***Update / Reinstall the Windows Media Player
If you continue to experience issues, you may want to consider reinstalling and/or updating the Windows Media player on your computer. You can find the latest Windows Media player on your computer by clicking "here".

Does anyone know how to add the pc beep slider back to the master volume properties? it's disappeared as an option.


1.Go to control panel>sound and audio devices>on the tab of device volume , click advanced. You will see sliders (master volume window), go to options>properties>tick the "PC Beep" to make it appears in volume control. Now just unmute it

2.If this doesnot work,try this
Control Panel. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Properties, then the Sounds tab.
Changing the Sound scheme to Windows Default should get it back to normal. If it’s already on Windows Default, you can try setting it to No Sounds, click Apply, then set it back to Windows Default and Apply again.
If that fails, I think you’d have to reinstall the sound drivers.

Speakers not working right


First check the easy stuff, wires, plugs green socket...now go to your control panel and double click on sound, down at the bottom you see speaker settings, speaker volume and advanced.
check your speaker volume hear- then click on advance-speaker tab- drop down box -select your set up- (2.1 = two speakers and a sub woofer). And make sure it is correct...then the performance tab- both slides all the way right.
Now if that is all good- uninstall your sound drivers and go to realtek and download the latest drivers for your sound card/or onboard.
If you need help to locate the drivers please provide card number- computer name and model- or the motherboard make and number.
You are using Windows XP-correct?
I hope this helps, please leave a rating.

Yahoo im


You can check the Yahoo IM preferences, enable sound alerts for different events.
Navigate to Messenger Menu---> Preferences---->By default, yahoo alert for an instant message is just a small popup sound which can hardly be heard.You may also enable message flashing so that the messages you receive keep on flashing till you read them. You can also change the default sounds for all the events though.

thx

Recording Issues In Vista


Microsoft moved the particular option that you need to enable since Windows XP, and have also changed its default to MUTE.

To hear what is playing through MIC IN...

  • Go to Control Panel and select "Sound"
  • Under the "Playback" tab, double click on your enabled speakers.
  • Select the "levels" tab, and look for "Mic In Volume".
  • Click once on the speaker icon that is muted to un-mute it.
I really hope that this has solved your problem, if it has not, please let me know and I will do my best to help you further. Good Luck!

Sound


Go to control panel > speech and audio devices > select audio > select recording > select advanced > Select Microphone (make a tick mark) adjust the volume just above middle level. and close it. OK. Now the problem should be solved ! Note: If your skype supports audio configuration run that . Also remember to use two channel audio if your system supports 6-channel audio onboard.
