Hey guys this is an odd issue im having I have seen settings in other operating systems to turn on or off system sounds but have never had the computer play actual audio through the system sound itself.

Anyways im woindering if someone can tell me how to turn this on, some of the computers in my office do this others dont and its really useful for employees watching 5 min training vids, not to have to hook up speakers etc.

any help?


edit: i should have specified these systems are all on win7 and there are all the same model/components. its just that some do and some dont

It must be the built-in speakers for the monitor that differs. What computer model do you refer as all being the same? It may also be some audio/output settings you might need to check on one that is working to the other that is not.
