No sound problem
« on: October 13, 2013, 09:27:15 PM »
Ok so on my computer that I don't use anymore, but my grandma uses does not have any sound anymore. I do not know the problem and I've searched everywhere. We do think it is something with the soundcard, but before we like accidentally buy a new one, maybe I could check out here and see what is the problem.

Ok so first of, the Sound icon down in the toolbar is gone. Secondly, if I go onto the control panel and try to change the sound, it is on the lowest and grayed, so I can not change it. I tried looking around there but seemed to find nothing at all. I checked the service thingy to see if it was on Stop, but it was on Start.

That is the things I can find so far that seems to cover the thing up. Do anybody know how to fix this? By the way I am on an windows XP.

PS: I do believe this is tech-related, but since I did not find any "tech-support" thingy I chose this one.

Was the operating system reinstalled? Could be missing driver. If you right click my computer and click manage then go to device manager. Is there anything listed there with a yellow mark which would indicate missing driver. Is the soundcard even listed? Worst case if something is gone faulty you could get a usb sound card so you dont have to install a physical card in the computer.

Do you have speakers or is the sound thing integrated in your monitor?
