    Hello. I am using a laptop running Win XP that uses SoundMAX and I noticed that recently my sound has dissappeared. I get nothing. The computer seems as if it actually playing the stuff, but nothing is coming out - not even MS sounds.

    I have checked all files, run all tests - everything seems to be ok. I hope someone can help me.

    Have a look for a volume knob on your laptop, gets me every time.

    I have that FN key and the volume on/off (esc button), tried those, didn't work. Nothing is muted. All volumes are on.

    you can run a test , if you have checked out the obvious already ..
    try the sound button on the lap top . turn it all the way up ..
    next goto start/ control panel click on "sound & audio devices"click on the advanced button at the bottom of that window .make sure it doesnt say 7.1 digital sourround system if you dont have 1 .. set it to what your using for speakers and click ok .
    next hit the sounds tab and select windows default..next click on the audio tab and make sure its your sound card for audio playback ..
    click ok on all windows now and close it out ..
    now test ,, sound ? no sound ? if no sound go to start / run . type in dxdiag click ok . when the direct X diagnostics window pops up click on the Sound tab . and on that screen click the button test direct sound ..next hit the music tab . and test the direct music ..
    then get back to us with your test results .. its all i can think of at the moment .
    cheers
