Click "start", then "control panel". Find "device manager", right click on, open, then click continue. Clck on the box with + next to "sound audio and video controllers". Do you see a warning, ?, !, or yellow triangle? Clcik on that and follow procedure. You should see your device in the drop down. Right click on it and in the list you should see "disable". If you see "enable", click on that and exit. Right click on it again and click on "properties". You should see " this device working properly". If you are using on board sound, click on the "driver" tab, then click on Update driver. Click on "automatically search for update..."
When finished exit. You should have a speaker icon in your taskbar at the lower right of your screen. Right click on it and click on "open sound mixer" and adjust volume.

What should i do because my lop top no sound?

If you had sound at one point then what this calls for is a system restore. Click start --> Run --> Type restore --> Click Ok --> Double click on rstrui --> This will bring up a window and find a restore point before your sound stopped working.
If you didn't have sound before; You need to go to the computer manufactor's website(say Dell) and get drivers for your model of computer.
If neither of these work I would venture to say that your sound card is bad. You probably will want to have someone(local computer store) replace the sound card for you.

I bought a lop top yesterday and when trying to use the mirco office services. it requires my product key, but when i type in the one benth the lop top it says it's a invalid key. so would u please asist...

Thank you for your question.

In this case the product number you are using is the Operating System's product number ie: Windows XP/Vista/7.

Microsoft Office Products require another product key individual to Office. I would suggest you contact the seller of the lap top for the installation discs which should come with a sticker that contains the Product Key.

Kind regards
