    I have a Windows XP operating system. I do not get any sound out of my speakers or my headphones. I did a troubleshoot but it reaveled nothing. The other day I had system sounds coming through my speakers but today that dosen't even work. I checked to see if there was any conflicts after going into device manager. There were no conflicts at all. My sound device is on my motherboard. I do now have a seperate sound card. I have an Intel(r) 82801AA AC'97 Audio controller. In device manager it also states that I have Legacy Audio Devices. In device manager it also states that every thing is working properly. Everything I have checked verifies that the sytem is completely set for sound. I also went into setup and sound is on as well as speakers. I am sort of confused right now as to what I can do to regain sound iin my system. I hope someone can help me. Thank you.

    Try this:
    Open control panel , click on Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices, then choose sounds and audio devices,
    Click on the sounds tab, under the sounds tab, you will see a box under sounds scheme, click on it and choose windows default.
    Now restart your computer for the changes to take effect..
    Hope that works right for you...

    If sound just recently stopped working, try a rollback (System Restore in Windows). If that doesn't fix it, try checking for "Other Devices" in Device Manager. You should have a seperate entry for your sound card, not Legacy Audio.

    Are your speakers plugged in to the correct port?

    Is this a desktop or laptop?

    If a desktop, which motherboard is in your computer? If your computer was built by a fine company such as Dell, Gateway, eMachines, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Sony, other, which brand & model?

    Is the computer that you reference in this post the same computer that you referenced in your earlier post?

    If so, did you install your chipset drivers, then your audio drivers? If not, you will need to do so, in that order.
    First - chipset
    next - others, such as video / graphics; sound / audio; network / ethernet

    Do you know how to enter the BIOS and determine, perhaps under integrated peripherals, if the onboard audio is enabled?
