No Sound, One solution.

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello, new to the site. Names PJ.Don't know if this is in the right place but, I've been reading a few posts on the subject of no sound. Out of most suggestions, I haven't seen any reference to re enabling the audio in the setup menu. Some sound/video cards have the sound built in and the on board sound has been disabled. My HP desk top came through this way. If the sound doesn't work after replacing the card with a new one and all avenues have been tried, then look in the computers set up program and see if the on board audio is set enabled or disabled. If it's disabled, enable it, save the setting and re boot. The sound might come back. It worked for me. PJ

Merry, In most cases, the phone jack that you plug your head set into has a set of points in it that normally activates the head phones and at the same time breaks the connection to the on board speakers. If this is the type of jack you have, then it's possible it's not breaking the speaker connection to the speakers and all the power is going to them. I'm not suggesting that this is your problem, but it is an avenue to pursue. Replacing the jack is fairly cheap, if that's the problem. Now I'm assuming that the head set it's self is in good working order, which can be tested on another computer, stereo, or whatever with the same style jack. Hope this helps. PJ
