Recently the sound on my pc is not working, there are no startup or shutdown sounds and no sound when on the internet e.g youtube. I do however have sound when listening to my music on itunes and when watching downloaded videos e.g avi files.
I post everything I have on sound. Use what applys to you. http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/top... ------ 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.
