Assuming the problem is on a windows based system and not Linux...
Have you tried:

Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices --> Audio Tab

Sound Playback tab: Double check that your system has the appropriate audio driver selected.
After you have selected the driver, click the volume tab to ensure nothing is muted that you don't desire to be muted.
- Repeat these steps for the Recording Playback and Midi Devices.

Friendly Note: if this just stopped working all of a sudden, you might have some Malware at work? Find the appropriate Malware and Spyware scrubbers and run them.

Hi martin,

I see that you are having issues with your Game.

MOH airborne requires atleast 128 of video card graphics to make it run, you mentioned you have only 32bit I do not think your game will reall work possible if you can upgrade that should be work.

Have a nice day.

Before going to any shops, here is a suggestion that can't hurt anything.
Go to the Control Panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Volume tab at the bottom, you will see "Speaker Settings". Click on the Advanced button. Change that setting to "Stereo headphones". You should hear the sound only through the headphones then.

No Sound


It would have to be a new motherboard as the sound will be on board. Obviously you have checked the drivers, but have you run a diagnostic check, you can do this by Start>run> then type 'dxdiag', then press enter. See if windows can locate the problem for you.

Sound problem


Sounds silly but, try muting your built in microphone, because i'l bet, the mic is picking up the sound from yours speakers and causing the echo. That's wot i've found on a few occassions. Other than that, check sound and video drivers by click Start>Run, then type in 'dxdiag' (without quotes) this will run a diagnostic on audio and video. Please rate this solution
