hello all,

i appear to have no sound yet the speakers are plugged in the same place as always

SiS 760 seems to be the sound card i think or it might not be

just to give a few hints as to what i have tried thanks to the BC chat

checked volume settings - they are greyed out
checked it is in the green socket at the back
the speakers are on and there is a red light to show power on them
took the case off and everything seems ok but i am no expert so maybe i cant say for sure but nothing has come loose etc

i am not sure if the drivers are installed i downloaded some SiS760 audio drivers from one site and ran the setup.exe file and it progressed half way and closed itself , ofcourse even if it meant to do that the sound did not work even after a restart

edit: tried different speakers all set up in the correct place and red light is on but still no sound

any help will be greatly appreciated as i feel deaf having a pc with nothing to hear apart from the fan going round lol

all the best

the fix to the problem as suggested by Andydf was with the BIOS, i cant remember the exact options that i click through but it appeared disabled so i gave it a shot at setting it to enabled

once i started up again i could hear sound again :thumbsup:
