First thing to do to check that there is a sound chip assigned is click start>run, then type 'dxdiag', then press enter, go to the audio tab and check there are drivers and run the sound test.

My Panasonic cf-w8 is mute? How do I unmute it? Does the Fn button have something to do with it?


Well the FN key could have set the mute on if the mute key was also pressed.

Click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and open the audio properties and volume control. Check to make sure the mute is not checked.

You can also click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and adjust to make sure the mute is not check.

On your keyboard if you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then you can hit the key that has the megaphone with an X across it to take the mute off.

Some laptops have 3 buttons that control the volume. One for turning the volume up, one for turning the volume down and one for muting the volume.

Sound is not working


There are some possible reasons why the sound is not working. It could be the volume control is in "MUTE", or the right sound card is not selected in the volume properties, or the speaker is defective.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Try to connect an external 2-channeled PC speaker. The computer should recognize the speaker and the sound should be transferred to the PC speaker. If the sound works on the PC external speaker, then you know that the volume control is NOT in mute and the sound card is selected. It means also that the built-in speakers could be defective.

2. If the same problem occur after connecting an external PC speaker, check the volume control, and make sure that the "MUTE" box is not checked. Then adjust the master volume.

* If everything's properly configured, but there's still no sound, check the volume properties under the Control Panel. Be sure that the correct sound card driver is selected. If that did not help, try to re-install the sound card driver.

* And the last option, contact the manufacturer and have them fix it for you.

Thank you and good luck!

have you tried looking at the advanced options in the volume panel make sure nothings muted if you had sound and you dont now i would roll back the drivers or reinstall them if you can play a song and there is no sound somethings just wrong with the settings if the sound was broken windows would tell you there was no device to play back sound with. also when your in the sound options try all avalabl playback devices
