Acelapage: Thanks for the quick reply. I did check out the speakers and they work OK. Also cllicked on the speaker icon in task bar to get the volume controls. All are full up or on HIGH. I had this problem before and fixed it - of course I have no idea what I did. There are speaker(s) in the LCD screen and 2 others attached by USB wire. Its the wire ones that are out. Screen type will not work and have not for some time. Sadly the system restore point does not go back far enough. I'll just have to press on. Thanks again. Ace

There are several audio settings on the system that you can increase the volume from. You have one that is by the lower part of the system, it used to be like a tuning fork, some have theirs by the top of the keyboard by the switch, while some have theirs by the side of the system.
First you need to check the audio settings from your computer, by clicking on the speaker icon that is on the task bar of the system, then you increase it from there. Or you click on the speaker icon on the task bar then click on the mixer, then you increase all the volume you will see in the mixer settings. It will show you the operating systems volume, the systems volume and other sound systems volume on the system.
After doing that, the sound of the operating system will be high.
what do mean of missing multimedia audio controller? the one that speaker icon on the lower right of the monitor or driver for the multimedia? Go to control panel then sounds and audio devices then on the volume check the Place volume icon on the task bar... hope this will help
Have you checked with headphones in the same port? Is it possible you've selected "Mute"? Check the System Tray near the clock in the lower right hand corner of your screen and make sure there's not a red circle next to the little speaker icon.
Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.
YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.
