Open Device Manager and look for yellow exclamation points by the audio section. Might have to uninstall then reinstall the drivers. Is this onboard or a loose card?

Do you have Windows Update to download automatically? There was an update recently that screwed up some sound drivers. M$ just released a patch for it on Tuesday

Found this thread on a search.

I also have no sound. I've checked drivers, good. services, windows audio, started. Device manager, good. Power, to speakers, good. Speakers, good. Volume(s) up. No sound, WMP is playing the file, RealAudio plays files, just no sound.

Running firewall, spybot S&D, Spyware Doctor W/anti virus, Panda Active Scan w/ Anti Virus, will check with bit defender to see if it can find anything. Have run CCleaner, and ATF Cleaner.

Will check with M$ for the update. The usual suspects don't seem fix my sound problem.

Checked with M$, I am running auto updates and I have all of the latest updates as of today (30 April 2007).

I didn't make this clear, but I am not running two anti virus programs at the same time, I shut off PC Spyware Doctor w/ antivirus, then go on line to run Panda anti virus (it's a webbased program), so I've scanned with Spybot- nothing found, Panda - nothing found. Currently running a full scan with Spyware doc.

Well, if anybody has any tricks up their sleeves to remedy my machine, I'd like to try them. This happend once before a few months back, when I had that miserable Norton anti virus. I found a site that suggested going into the service manager and making sure that the Windows Audio was started, when I checked there it was'nt so I started it and it fixed my sound problem. Now that solution won't work as my machine shows the Windows Audio was started, I restared just in case, and still nothing.

Whoa!

I'm confused -

is Joe G1 and H. k. the same person,

or do we have two separate, but similar, problems?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Fixed.

Not the same as H.k. I just had a similar problem.

Don't know what I did, just ran every bit of anti-virus, cleaners and registry repairers I could, then restarted XP, and VIOLA! sound. Weird.
