Question by  SillyTeen (16)

I have no sound on my Windows XP, what should I do?


Answer by  Mturk85 (133)

Firstly, you should make sure that whether you have installed the correct sound card driver program. If not, please find or download one to install correctly and restart PC to retry. If it doesn't work, please check you WinXP system and your sound card hardware. If WinXp is no problem, it is highly possible that you got errors on hardware.

First check the system controls for audio. Check that all volume sliders are at the maximum volume and that none of the input channels is set to mute. If you still do not hear any sound, check the device drivers for the sound card. Go online and try to find an updated version of the driver.

its your sound drivers that are not installed on the pc what you have to do is to tell your motherboard model if you want to do it your self then goto softpedia and write your motherboard model there they will give you the sound drivers but its difficult to find

Make sure that your computer is not muted. I know, it seems silly to say but sometimes the computer mutes itself. If that isn't it, make sure your speakers or headphones are not at the lowest volume. After that, check to see if the audio drivers are up to date. After that, you probably need to replace your sound card.

Well make sure your speakers are hooked up, plugged in, and power on. Then make sure it's not muted and the volume is up. Then look at the device manager to see if the sound card has a problem. If so update the driver or uninstall and reinstall it.

Verify the connections to the speakers and computer. Verify the hardware device driver is installed or not. To download and install a new or updated driver: 1. Connect to the Internet. 2. Right-click My Computer. 3. Click Properties. 4. Click Hardware tab,then click Device Manager tab. 5. A new window will open. 6. Click Sound Drivers to see what drivers are installed. 7. Click Update and Windows will see if you have the latest driver.

I went through the same problem with my computer as well. start off by checking the speakers. Be sure they are plugged in, and that the wires are not loose.

You should go into your control panel and open the device manager. Select your sound card, usually it is a Real Tek if you have not upgraded, and roll back the drivers. It is not uncommon in an XP for the driver updates to make the speakers stop working in the back of the pc.

You can check it by steps below: 1. Check if you mute the speaker? If yes, unmute it 2. Make the speaker sound louder 3. Check if the music or video has sound output 4. Check the driver of your sound card is working properly 5. Check if the hardware of your sound card or mainboard is broken

You should verify if the cables are plugged-in the computer, and if they are intact, and if this isn't the cause of the problem, you should try reinstalling the sound drivers, or go to an expert.

Please right click my computer and choose manage, choose device manager, then right click Sound, video and game controller to check the driver installed properly.
