Specs: Windows XP
I have no audio and it is driving me bananas. I depend a lot on videos to present information. Now I cannot hear what the video is saying. I have done a lot of looking and am convinced that the problem is in my registry. can anyone give me a one stop solution to or at least where to look for the information. I am told that if i go and buy Windows and reload, that I will lose the office suite. I am up that creek...help

Have you loaded the drivers for your video card? Has this problem just appeared and have you had audio previously?

As suggested by Ëwen, kinldy check the video and audio drivers. If they are not updated, kinldy update them from the manufacturers webiste.

In case there are any In Built Diagnostics provided by OEM, try running the audio diagnostics.

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Let me know if that fixes the issue

Thanks & Regards

- right click on My Computer then click Properties
- click on the Hardware tab then click on Device Manager

Are there any entries on the list that have a yellow question mark as seen in the following pic? If there is, it means you have to reinstall the drivers. You didn't list your system specs so we have no way of pointing you in the right direction.
