No sound

Specs: Windows XP
Hi, I'm reeeeeally stuck with a problem I have with the sound on my computer (Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600, XP home service pack 2 with Realtek AC 97 audio stuff). Basicaly it doesnt play ANYTHING and nothing seems to be wrong with the card or whatever. I have looked at all the volume controls and nothing is muted and the device manager says everything is enabled and working properly with no conflicting hardware. When I play sounds in WMP it shows it playing but it is also jumpy and doesnt change song at the end. System sounds also dont play and it seems to freeze on speaker tests. I even tried reinstalling windows, that worked the first time a turned it on but after that I had the same problem. Any ideas anyone? (the speakers are fine to)

Did this happen on a new installed windows after you made the microsoft security updates.

I ask that, because microsoft has some driver updates for some hardware like graphic cards, soundcards a.s.o., that do not really work on every system.

In that case, you should only install the security updates without any driver updates provided by microsoft and test your sound again.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

It happened a long time after the SP2 update and it is not connected to the internet so it obviously doesnt receive updates. It happened in the middle of a sound file playback. Sorry if this doesnt make much sense, thanks

You can try re-installing your sound driver after looking to see if there's a later version from your computer OEM's web site. Be sure to get what ever driver that you install from your computer OEM's web site specifically for your computer model.

This has fixed sound problems for me.

Ok thank you, I'll try that now. Also I've been looking at the device manager again and found System Speaker. It says it has no drivers installed, would that have anything to do with it?

As far as those reg files after you download and save them you can double left click them or right click them and choose "Merge".

AaROn,
"Thanks. Ok and would i need to give them a Data value?"

No, you don't have to do anything with them after you merge then into the registry. You could restart your computer but that's it.
