Hello,

Without knowing the make of the machine it will be hard to give specific steps. But, if you have a set of restore CD's you should be able to try reloading the sound drivers from that CD or the manufacturer CD if you have upgraded the card.

You can open the device manager by going to Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the device Manager you should see something that says unknown device with a yellow ! beside it. You can insert the restore cd or the manufacturer cd and click reinstall driver and when asked for the file... point it toward the cd drive and that should help.

*** Make sure that if you use the restore cd that you remove it from the cd before restarting the machine***


Thanks

I can't heard no music why?


Several possibilities come to mind: speakers have failed (self-powered speakers have bad power brick, cable damaged, etc), speakers plugged into the wrong port (audio in instead of audio out), audio card or driver has failed.

If you recently had to restore your OS (or do a roll-back to a "known" good configuration), check your audio device (make and model) and make sure you have the latest driver installed. (Look at the website for your computer if it is a prebuilt system or look up your motherboard if it is an on-board audio device.) The device manager might have a yellow exclamation mark on the audio device if this is the issue (access from the Windows Control Panel)

Check for bad speakers by trying another set of speakers or plugging them into another computer. (Swap cables if that is possible.)

I hope this helps.

I have lost sound on my pc


You may have accidentally switched-off your PC's sound. Do this:
1: Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices
2: In the first "Volume" tab, where there is Device Volume, make sure the "Mute" checkbox is not ticked - the Speaker symbol should also NOT be have a RED tag.
3: Also slide the volume slider to the right...
4: Done!

No sound,


You may be missing a sound card which can me purchased and installed professionally at any computer store. You also may want to check that the computer even recognizes the speaker by accessing the Speaker section in the Control Panel.
