Original thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/79908/connection-speed-severly-slowed/

Since this fix I have lost the sound to my speakers. I re-installed sound drivers.. and this did not help.

I am absolutely at a loss for words and am completely puzzled at how this happened...


I finished doing the instructions of the above post this morning. I created a new restore point and was using my computer normally (with sound.) I left and returned to the computer a few hours later and realized that I had no sound.

I checked all the normal things. Mute, sliders on volume control, etc.

I plugged headphones into the speaker port to test the port and sound IS working that way... Just not with the speakers.

I know that it is not the age of the speakers. I just purchased them about 3 months ago.

Need more info, let me know.

Do you have onboard audio or a sound card? If you have a sound card, then reinstall the drivers that came with the card (or go to the manufacturers website and download and install the latest drivers).

If you have onboard audio, then go to Start>Settings>Control Panel then double click on System, then click on the Hardware tab then click on Device Manager. In the window that opens up, do you see any yellow exclamation points? If so, right click on the item to it's right which should be audio drivers (Legacy audio drivers or something to that effect) and click on "Update". It should search the internet for the drivers then install them. Hopefully, you'll have sound after this.

If it doesn't work, then post back with your system model and specs and we'll go from there. :thumbsup:

It can't be anything else...
try the speakers on another device like a walkman or Ipod or whatever see if they work like that

I ran all the tests that I knew how to do on my own. AND... solved my own problem. Apparently after a couple years of plugging in and unplugging the speaker plug, the port had been pushed back into the cpu case a little bit. It was moved into the tower enough that connection wasnt being made. I opened the case and wiggled the port back into place and restarted with sound. Contrary to the norm of my life.. this worked out with out having to resort to the old "get the hammer, then buy a new one" plan.

Thanks for the help ideas though. Any help that I can get is always appreciated!!
