Hey

I can't seem to get any sound on my pc, any ideas what could be causing this? i've checked in Sound and Audio Device properties to ensure the speakers haven't been muted, and also checked everything has been plugged in correctly. all volume controls are set (in windows, on the speaker and in the application) and nothing is muted. I have also completed system restore.

The problem 'seemed' to arise after I removed my ipod usb lead from my pc and transfererred my windows media files to ipod software.

:thumbsup:

Thanks for any help :inlove:

Getting very frustrated!!!!!!!!! :flowers: :trumpet:

Do you get any warning messages when you try to play music? Can you play .wav files?

I get no warning messages.

Everything plays and shows it is playing but, there is no sound.

It doesnt play anything at all.

There is absolutely no sound, regardless of the file.

I don't even get the standard microsoft sound which comes on when the pc is starting/shutting down.

Try removing your Ipod software and see if that cures the problem.

If it does, try reinstalling it following the directions that came with it carefully.

Also - look in your device manager and see if there are any red or yellow warnings in sound related catagories - open the trees and look at all the components.

Also - look at file associations and see what ap is being used to play sounds.

Do you have a separate sound card or an on board sound card. If it is a separate pci card, I would unplug it and replug it to make sure you have a good connection. Maybe also some compressed air to clean the inside of the pc out at the same time.

In both cases I would go into device manager, right click on sound card and uninstall it. Reboot and let Windows install driver for the "new" device.

I'm not the most technical i'm afraid,but, I have tried to get the information you have mentioned.

There doesnt seem to be an option for 'sound card' exactly, but I think this is the information you mean (?)

C-Media WDM Audio Device

Driver date: 15/12/2005
Driver Provider: C-Media Inc
Driver Version: 5.12.1.50
Provider: C-Media Corporation

hence the sound is on board

That looks correct, so try uninstalling and windows should automatically reinstall. That would help clear up any possible problem with missing or corrupted drivers.
