Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Driver and Application Recovery CDs
* Updated sound driver software

Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings

1. Step 1Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.


2. Step 2Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.


3. Step 3Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.



Perform a System Restore If Necessary



4. Step 1If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."


5. Step 2Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."


6. Step 3Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.



Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers



7. Step 1Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.


8. Step 2Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."


9. Step 3Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.


10. Step 4Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.


11. Step 5Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.
