  • Do you have speakers? Are they plugged in and turned on? Does the sound work with a headset? Did you check the volume levels?

  • First you need to see if you have a sound card.

    Go to START menu.
    Then over to ALL PROGRAMS.
    Click on : Accessories to SYSTEM INFORMATION

    Then you will see system summary.
    Click that..then under COMPONENTS you should see:MULITI MEDIA

    It should tell you if you have Creative Audio or something like that and what drive it can be found in.

    You may be able to do a SEARCH for sound device

    Hope this helps you out!!!!

    ALSO......go to : and search for BELARC ADVISOR....this is an AWESOME tool to have to tell you EVERYTHING that has been downloaded onto your computer!
