    gaopr has not filled out any system specs info.

    so its going to be hard to help ya without some of the hardware id. =) tell us about yer system first. upon initial diagnosing, make sure your audio drivers arent messed up. check in the control panel and look at the audio controller drivers and see if an error shows

    Start here

    Control Panel,Sounds and Audio.
    This should be active to place volume control on Taskbar and test sounds.
    Also to set volume.
    If it's not,your sound drivers aren't installed.
    Do your speakers have a volume conrol ?

    Audio Controller

    Thats not something you install,i'ts automatic waiting for the drivers.
    See sysdm/hardware.BUT
    Did you view my attachment ? Is yours useable ?
    Like i said if not "That means the drivers aren't installed"
    Do you have a driver cd ?:confused:

    No drivers no sound

    Your only option then (You have to identify the sound
    (pci card or internal (motherboard) that means a mbd cd.
    It also has other necessary installations to work well.
    So you'll have to go to the manufacturer and download them.
    But that might only be an update to the cd you don't have,but
    you should have
    with any sound or video to operate.
    What is it pci or internal ?
    You have to have these items to operate a computer.Why don't you have
    a cd ?
