Solved I have lost audio from my C.D., it was there before.

March 8, 2012 at 15:36:56
Specs: Windows XP
I did have audio and sound on my C.D.but, I suppose, because of my fiddling with the controls I don't have audio any more. The speakers work fine and I can hear the normal buzzing sound from them and the occasional click, also the C.D. "tells" me with a sound when I make a wrong move when I play solitaire but that's all. I have tried working my way through the fault without success. Can anyone help me with this please.I have asked before but it didn't help.--Regards---Eric.

✔ Best Answer
Apart from the help you were given here: http://www.computing.net/answers/wi... there is not much more to add. Have you "muted" the sound in the speaker control perhaps?

I still can't get sound, how about if my audio is o.k. is it possible that I am stuck in the mute mode and that is my trouble, if so how can I get out of it? Help me if you can----Eric.

Look at the speaker icon on your toolbar, if there is a little red X under it you are in mute mode. Click it to bring up the speaker setting dialog and un-mute it from there.

Thanks for your prompt reply but there's a thing, I have lost that icon on the task bar. I haven't seen it there for a long time. It seems that I am in too big a hole for anyone out there to pull me out of. Thanks for all your help out there.----Eric----I will try you all again with a problem I'm sure.

"...I have lost that icon on the task bar. I haven't seen it there for a long time..."

Could you at least tell us if/what you have tried to get that Volume Icon back, and with what results? You can still access the volume controls through the Control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices -- Volume (click on Advanced to Mute/Un-Mute individual devices).

You know, of course, that the icon will "disappear" after a while as per the default "Hide inactive icons", but can simply be made to "Show hidden icons".

Is there any Exclamation alerts in Device Manager/Hardware regarding related devices?
