Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Simply no sound from PC

\015 Purchased a brand new PC from Staples today. - Vista - Set it up, tried to play music - no sound. Checked all devices, and they say no probs. Checked for driver updates, same thing - all OK. Had a look in device manager - all devices working properly. Then thought, maybe knocked the ''mute'' by mistake? No. That's fine.\015\012I'm sure I had the same problem with a similar PC but can't remember how I fixed it!!\015

Answers :

Down in the lower right corner of your PC display. Click the speaker icon and go to "Mixer" You can turn on or off the different sound outputs.
\012Hope this helps.
Ok, good news, then some bad news.
\015\012 If everything checks out in the device manager, your drivers are loaded and the system had no sound: most likely the internal speaker is not connected to the motherboard.
\015\012being a system builder I know that the internal speaker sometimes does not get wired to the motherboard or gets wired incorrectly.
\015\012Best way to test the sound is to plug a pair of headphones (the ones from your walkman will work)into the green sound port on the back of your computer. This will tell you wether you have sound enabled.
\015\012Generally the internal speaker is used to hear the beep codes as the computer starts, or when it crashes: and perhaps your sound drivers can not route sound to that speaker.
\015\012Does the computer beep as it starts? If so , then the internal speaker is connected.
\015\012try the headphone thing, if that works and your computer beeps as it starts, then the only thing you need is a set of amplified speaker that can be got at walmart for 15 bucks. If the headphone dont work, post again here and we'll try another step.
