    HELP :eek:
    I have no sound coming from my speakers...either from programs or internet usage...I hear the dial-up access coming thru them when I dial the internet so I know that they are working and hooked up right. I have gone thru all of the windows HELP tutorials and even have Nortons that I used to check out the problem but nothing! It seems as though everything is right but I still get no sound.
    I'm running Windows ME.
    I am at a loss :confused:

    Does the modem dial tone etc actually come from your speakers? Sounds like you have something hooked up incorrectly. What type of modem and sound card do you have? I have heard of this when people were using voice/data/fax modems and they hook their speakers up to the modems speaker out connection.

    Try going into Safe Mode and going into Device Manager (right click on My Computer and click on Properties) and seeing if you have anything under Sound Video and Game Controllers that is shown twice. Also need to know what kind of computer you have as I know with Hewlett Packards the best place to plug in the speakers is in the modem (has a modem sound card combo). This is only on certain models though. Give us some more details on what kind of computer, sound card, processor, memory, etc. that you have. Hope this helps.:)
