Hi I have Dell dimensions 8150. Operating system Windows Vista Home PremiumService Pack 2.
Sound works ok when pc turned on at first then no sound at all. When I open up Volume mixer it looks OK. If I turn PC off then back on it comes on for a while then turns off.

Any ideas.

Thanks
Annette

Did you install new software lately? or new drivers? Try the System Restore program and restore it back to a date when the problem wasn't there. ( Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore )

Note, System Restore will remove installed software if the date you chose was prior to that software's installation.

I don't think I have installed any new software recently. It has been happening for so long now that sure when I should do system restore.

Is your sound on board the motherboard? If so, check the manufacturer's site to see if they have any updated drivers for it.
