    Hi,

    What brand of PC/Model do have - also, is this a notebook or Desktop. What brand of Audio card do you have installed?

    In Device Manager, open the Properties of your sound device, and note what
    error messages are displayed. The Properties section typically provides some
    guidance as to what corrective action to take.

    In addition, if all else fails, you can remove the sound card in Device
    Manager, thus allowing Windows to reinstall it when you reboot. This step
    often fixes problems such as you have. Post back if none of these
    suggestions does anything. We'll try to devise another approach.

    Hope that helps,

    CR

    Alrighty then, i have a HP pavilion Slimling s7410n Desktop PC.
    I dont know how to tell what sound card i have. when i open device manager, underneath Sound, video, and game controllers all that it shows is high definition audio device. when i hit properties it says this device is working properly. By the way i cant get sound period, ive used headphones and many other things.

    Umm so first of all is High defintion audio device a sound card? and yes i tryed all of those things. it seems my audio is hooked up right. Btw since i bought this computer 3 years ago perhaps vista doesnt support it? ive tryed downloading the new drive for it. o yeah and my sound comes from the monitor speakers.

    YES! whos the man? i am :) so i found a quick fix. Hopefully this wil work for you lauren. I guess my drivers were out of date but downloading the update wasnt fixing it. so pretty much i went to this site: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/psg/board/message?message.uid=81345 follow the steps he has on his secound post. and it should reinstall your audio system. worked for me.
