    Ok. I do not know why my pc is not putting out any sound at all. I can't even get an Aol greeting, or music. I tried deleting stuff that I thought would help, but it didn't, and I don't know to do.
    could someone please give me advice on what to do.

    My sound for my pc is still not working. I checked
    the volume control, and the mute. It's not the mute.
    I checked everything. Don't have any idea on what to do.
    I tried restarting the computer, and it still did not
    work. I'm about to go insane. :confused:
    Thanks for the prevoius help.

    I tried my computer, and I didn't see any exclamation points.
    Do you have any more ideas. Thanks again. Maniak

    Have you moved your computer recently. Could be the jack is plugged into the wrong port, or maybe your speakers are dead.

    My computer has not moved since it's been here.
    It has been here for about two or three years.
    I don't believe that my speakers are dead. I'm sure
    they work. I'll take suggestions if you got 'em. Thanks again

    Before we remove anything, have you tried rebooting?

    Right click my computer, highlight your sound card, click remove and then reboot. Windows should pick it back up when it comes up.

    Try plugging in a headset into the speaker slot, just to see if it's working.

    Rebooting is just restarting your system. If you are thinking of reformating (reinstalling windows) I dont believe this will help.
    Again, right click my computer>choose properties>device manager tab>scroll down to sound, video and game controlers>click the plus>what is listed there?

    Now go to start>run>type msinfo32>ok>click the plus next to hardware>click IRQ>use edit to select all and copy the information and post it back here.
