    I recently disconnected my tower and connected a substitute to diagnose a problem. Since I've reconnected the original PC, I can't get analog audio output to feed to my stereo. I'm sure the audio path is good to the point where it plugs into the computer - I can touch the tip of the plug on the patchcable and make it hum. However, plugging it in (to the green 3.5mm jack) doesn't produce audio. I haven't made any changes to the computer or drivers, so I believe it should work. I've tried searching this online with no success. Any thoughts?

    Have you checked the audio volume mixer (double click on speaker icon on right side of taskbar if visible) to see if the volume is turned down or muted?

    Does the Windows Hardware Device Manager control panel show any yellow warning or red error markers on any of the hardware?

    I've checked the audio mixer, and the volume is turned up full. But....when I went into Control Panel and clicked on Sounds and Audio Devices, I found the Device Volume set at minimum. Turned it up and all is well. Thanks, Cwwozniak!
