    Recently I lost the sound on my PC. I have 2 sound blaster cards: Audio PCI and PCI Legacy Device. All drivers are functioning properly and the Device Hardware says the cards are O.K. I have RealOne, Windows Media Player and Quick Time. None produces any sound.
    The speakers are properly connected to the PC and are "on", volume is up.
    What can I do to hear any sound?

    Hiya

    First off, lets have a look at the sounds. Control Panel | Sounds. Under Sound tab, is the Show volume greyed out?

    If not, lets have a look at this. Rightclick your Volume icon in the bottom near the clock. Open Volume Controls. Options | properties. Tick all the boxes. OK. Now, are any muted ore greyed out?

    Can you hear any sound from, say a CD? Have you just upgraded your OS or installed a new piece of hardware?

    Regards

    Hiya

    Just got an email:

    When you say, there is no Show option, is this the Show Volume Control on the Taskbar one? Go to the Audio tab as well. Whats under Preferred Device.

    Also, just confirm something else. Go to Control Panel | System. Device Manager. Under Sound, see if there is a yellow !
    You may need to expand using +

    I might have a simpler answer, reading your reply again. You may have dislodged them when you were putting in the fan. See If they can be pushed further into the slots.

    Regards
