Question

No Sound Coming From Windows XP Speakers

I've got a problem with my speakers on my computer. No sound is coming through. I've tried almost everything but I can't think of anything else. So I'm asking for help now. This is the only thing that I can find out that's wrong with it. All the functions are working on the computer but nothing from the speakers. I can hear from the headphones but that's it.

Here's a picture of what's the only thing I can figure out that would be a problem but I can't figure it out. As you can see, the Audio part is not highlighted and won't let me clink on it.

Please anyone help if you can.

check the physical

the plugs, the wires. Next check the "mixer" settings, should be some icon for sound in the systray (bottom right corner). Open "Device Manager" and see if there are any yellow warning marks there.

If a laptop

In reply to: No

then may be some key combo, such as function key, which adjusts or turns the sound off. Also volume control on side of laptop. If desktop, try a different set of speakers. Also check the speakers are plugged into the correct hole in back. If you have one of those systems where you choose the function for a rear speaker system, check to be sure you have that software program set up correct.

Check the wire connection and in the settings. Also check in the device manager whether the audio driver has been installed correctly or not. If not install the audio driver from your mother disk. Else search in online by using your motherboard name. So that you can get exact driver to install in your machine.
