    Although my computer "chirps" when I use the Caps Lock key to change from lower case to caps and vice versa -- I have no other sound at all -- not on booting up, trying to play CDs, trying to play music from music sites, not announding IMs, or mail, etc. I used Norton Utililities WinDoc to try to find and clear the problem to no avail. I still have no sound. Any idea what might be wrong and how to fix it? Thanks.

    You probably need to install the correct drivers for the soundcard. But lets check the easiest thing first. Go to the back of your computer and make sure the speakers are plugged in and plugged into the right jack(it should be label but very hard to see). Also try another set of speakers or headphones. Then go to the Control Panel and check the the Soundcard is selected and not muted in Volume Control in Multimedia.

    Once thats checked, open up your Control Panel, go to System and check Device Manager. Is there a soundcard listed? Is there anything with an error? Any unknown devices or PCI Multimedia devices? If there's any with errors try removing those devices and reboot. If this fails we'll need to know what version of windows you have and what soundcard/motherboard/computer you have.

    Sorry for the delay! Suggested remedies didn't work, but I found the solution in my manual (!) -- which suggested removing the drivers and rebooting the computer so that Windows would automatically restore them. It worked. Thank you for your help and suggestions, though.
