Have a look in Device Manager & make sure there are not any Red or Yellow colours.

If you are 100% sure your settings are OK, try another speaker & then if no sound, another sound card.

First right click your speaker Icon and open Volume control
and make sure your sound is not muted.

If you don't have a speaker Icon go to the Control Panel and check your sound

Windows XP
See if your sound has been stopped in Services Under
Windows Audio.
Start - Control Panel - Open Administrative Tools - Open Component Services - Click Services (Local) and Scrowl down the list to Windows Audio to see if it says - Started. If stopped
Left click Windows Audio and click restart. -
Right click Windows Audio - left click Properties - Left click Start

If the above doesn't work, go to control panel and open System Icon -
Hardware Tab - Device Manager - Click the + Plus sign for Sounds.......... -
Right click Realtek AC 97 (Or whatever Sound you have) - Left click - Update Driver.
To update you will need the CD that came with your computer
Or go on the Internet to download the drivers for your sound.

Find what sound your using. All Programs - Accessories -
System Tools - System Information

At the very least, you could tell us whether this is a desktop or a laptop! Because, yes, there is a huge difference (especially in regards to audio)...can you hear this?

Have you tested your audio with a set of headphones, and if so, what was the result?
