Hello, I lost the sound on my computer after I defrag. it last night. When I opened my control panel, under 'volume', it says I haven't an audio device, but when I open 'Sounds.' it gives me the option to change my sound schemes, and I have some options when I open hardware. I don't know what to do, or what options to select.

I don't know if defraging my computer had anything to do with this, but I had sound, and the volume icon on the bottom of my screen before I defrag. it.

Can you help me please?

Thank you~

Ann

Hello,

Try this 1.

Check the "Sounds and Audio Devices" option in Control Panel. Make sure that

volume is not in mute.

Try reinstalling your audio drivers. You can download the drivers from the

manufacture website and install it.

Or

Let us know the brand name and model number.

Good Luck.
