Hi Aimee,

Go to Device Manager (via Control Panel) and check the sound card drivers are installed. There will probably be an exclamation mark over the device. Double click it and choose the "driver" tab and click on the Update Drivers button.

If this doesnt work, right click on the device (in Device manager) and choose "Uninstall. Agree to the warning and restart your machine.

Good luck.

I really appreciate thank you messages as a payment for solving issues :o)
