Hi, there is no sound coming and every things look fine to me ,the audio icon is also showing and sound and devices is also showing in device manager. I don't know what the problem can you guys help me out.
Every thing looks good but no sound(24 posts)
The two most common problems with sound are:
1. The wires are not plugged in or are plugged in the wrong holes (don't laugh as this happens more than you think)
2. You do not have the drivers installed for your sound card.
Have you installed the motherboard drivers?
Also, try right clicking computer then select properties and look at device manager. If you select the sound heading and expand it you should see if you have the drivers installed properly.
Also check Plug n Play.
And Right click on speaker icon in task bar, select Playback devices, select speakers and select Properties, make sure it says they are enabled.
Edit : Is it simply set on Mute ?
With a situation like this I use a live Linux distro either on USB or CD to boot up and see if sound works. If it does you'll know it's a software problem you are chasing and if it doesn't ........ you'll be in the same place as when you started.
Try a system restore to when it was working.
Hmmm where did I hear that before... OH, Yes, it was back on page one of this topic.
Here's how if you do not know.
If you want to do a system restore...
XP: Go to Start->Help and Support. Under Pick a Task click on "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". Make sure there is a dot in "Restore my computer to an earlier time". Then click Next. Choose a date with a bold number that is before you did what you did. Then click next. Read and click Next again.
Vista , Win 7: There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu or you can type rstrui into the search box and hit enter. Your choice.
Watch it do it.
