Dear Bambinela,

Please get to the Device Manager and see whether the audio drivers have been installed or they need to be updated. The problem should normally be sourcing from the sound driver.

Thanks.

I have already reinstalled my sound driver. And when I want to update it I see message "The best driver software for your device is already installed", so no need to update. But there is no sound yet...
P.S. With ear pieces I can hear clear sound. :)

Hello Bambinela,

If you can hear the sound with ear pieces, everything is fine with your audio card and drivers.

Please check your speaker connection, if it is okay, your speakers are damaged and must be replaced or repaired. You can always see if you borrow another pair of speakers to test.

Regards

I can hear sound when external speakers or ear pieces are plugged in, so certainly the problem is with internal speaker. I removed internal speaker, how could I repair it? :))

You take your speaker to a technician, ask him if they can be repaired, if they can ask for an estimate. If you moved your speakers around, it just may be a wire connection. Speakers are fairly basic.

Opps pardon me! I just read that you have internal speakers. This is not the same at all. My experience with internal speakers is that they are prone to fault, as a matter of a fact they are know to cause other technical failure with the rest of the hardware. I suggest that you use external speakers for internal one are expensive to repair and may cause damage in the long run.

Best regards

Ok, thanks. :)
I tried to restore my computer to the state it was in before something went wrong with speaker, but a message "The selected backup could not be found. System restore is looking for a restore point that is on your backup. Choose a different restore point." has appeared. I can restore just to 1st August, but the problem appeared a few days earlier. Why is that so? :(
