Hello,
This could be caused by the sound either being muted or not installed correctly. To check to see if it disabled, look to see if theres a yellow speaker in the bottom right corner next to the time with a red circle with a slash through it. If thats there it means that the sound is muted. If you have xp, you can double click the speaker and there should be a option there that says Muted. Just uncheck that.
If the speaker isnt there it could be that the sound card is turned of in the device manager. To check this, you can click Start > Run > and type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. This will open device manager. Look for Sound Video and Game Controllers and see if theres a red x on thst section that means it disabled. You msy hsve to double click the sectio to see the actual card.The easiest way to correct thats if its a Dell, Gateway, HP,etc is to right click where the red x is and left click Uninstall or remove. After that you should see the card disappear from the device manager. After that happens you can restart the machine and it should say Found New Hardware and it will automatically reinstall the drivers.
If the machine isnt a pre-manufactured maachine like Dell, Gateway, HP, etc, you will need to make sure that you have the driver that camewith the card when it was installed.
Thanks

What is mean by troubleshooting?give some examples.


Troubleshooting simply means, investigating a problem to find out the cause and to fix the problem. We can also say; the process of finding and fixing a problem is called troubleshooting.
Example like when your computer has sound problem, we have to find out what is the cause, suppose if it's drivers related problem, after installing or updating the sound drivers will fix the problem so here, installing and updating the sound driver is the Fix.
If you cd/dvd player isn't playing your Cds/Dvds, you have to check the media (cd and dvds), after that, you'll also clean the cd or dvds. And if your cd/dvd problem is caused by the Lens not the others like cds or motor, etc.., then replacing the lens will fix the problem and there'll be no more problem with your cd/dvd player. I'll read and play all cds/dvds after the lens is replaced.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Hp pavilion f1503 will not play music, on limewire the internet or anything. Any media file will just not even start to play, even after it is done buffering. The computer is not registering the stock...


You can check the sound settings in the control panel and see if the audio device is configured properly. Default device selection, volume level, etc.
If that is all okay, consider reinstalling your audio driver, or the audio codecs (something like the K-Lite codec pack).

No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems

Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
Also low electrical current is a major problem too

Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems

Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.

If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.

Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer

Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.

Lenovo DVD writer Creates sound


What kind of noise you hear?

Rising spinning noise is normal. When palying movie or music it gets to some level and continue with the same noise.

If it was not case before, then check the CD holder of your device for some dirt that might make your CDs not to be inserted proper.

Regards.

Cant hear songs


It sounds like your headphone/hold cable is faulty. Try plugging it into a sound device with a docking bay. If no sound comes out of there either then it's a faulty logic board.

Sound Card info.


check the device manager listing and see if the sound card is listed under Sound, video , game controllers. If it shows a Yellow Exclamation point, it means there is a driver or resource conflict. If a Red indicator show, it means it has been disabled somehow. Also make sure the headphones are tested on another PC with working sound. This will verify the heradphones are still good.
