    Hi

    I have a dell 4300 inspiration o/s windows. I seem to be unable to get sound. ZI checked everything and can not find the problem.

    Any ideas. The power is on by the green lights on the surround. Can there be a problem with the unit itself?

    I just checked the fuse and it's ok

    What are you using to confirm that you have no sound?

    Have you checked that nothing has been muted?

    Hi Snake

    I was able to get sound once again and l have no idea what l did but it happened. I was listening to the radio (p/c) while surfing and then l got a notice to upgrade to a better AOL
    protection package. So l downloaded it after getting out of everything and when l had to restart my p/c l had no sound.

    I then deleted all of the new applications and then still no sound.

    Ask the Brain, but again he's dead.

    Hiya

    I've moved this to Hardware :)

    Are you still having this problem? If so, I assume you're using external speakers, as in none attached to the monitor.

    Have you checked the volume control settings? If not, doubleclick on the volume icon near your clock. Click on Options | Properties, and make sure all boxes are ticked. Are any muted, or the balence not in the middle?

    Also, have you tried the speakers on another pc, or tried some others on the pc with the problems?

    Regards

    eddie
