Please can someone help me? When I turn my computer on, ther is no sound however, if I do a system restore I get the sound back but the next time I turn on it has gone?!!! I am not at all knowledgeable about the workings of computers but feel sure that there is a simple answer to this problem. Thanks for reading.

What operating system do you have (ie. Windows XP Home)? Does your computer have a sound card? If so, which one? If not, what motherboard does your computer have? If you do not know this information you can download SIW, which is a free program that will give you loads of information about your computer.

Another thing you can do is to check the Device Manager to see if there are any red x's or yellow !'s next to your sound devices.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
