I've lost sound on my computerand can't seem to resolve issue. All connections secure( (I get audible bleep for instance when deleting email) I have tried all I can think of in control panel settings, but cannot get sound on imported video. Any help greatly appreciated.

Can you play music? Have you tried playing a video that you know works with audio?
I'm just wondering if you're missing an audio codec for said video.

Ok so you get a beep from something but is it coming from your speakers/headphones or from inside the PC?

Right click My Computer and choose manage, then click on Device Manager. In the list on the right do you see any yellow ? or !

If so right click on the item and choose properties, then click Driver Details and update driver, allow to search Microsoft Update for the driver.

If not then your actual sound card is ok and it likely your speakers are the problem do you have any others to test?

It is also possible that if you have installed sotware recently it can default your sound device, check what is selected as an output device for sound in device manager. Other than that it is usually a driver issue and you may have to remove and re-install..:thumbsup:

I assume you have XP,i am not exactly sure how this goes as i have been on vista for a while.
Try double clicking on the speaker Icon in the system tray (where you volume control is)there should be options for sound mixer etc ,Just look and see what is ticks are checked,

I dont understand why when people are trying to help you you have chosen not to answer half of their questions,
1,XP or Vista
2, does any sound come through the speakers at all,That will tell whether the speakers are working or not,
3,does music playback through the speakers or just system sounds,
4,if the problem is just video playback then it is either a file association or a codec that you may have uninstalled ,

Somewhere along the line, messing about with control panel settings and the like I must have hit the right button or combination of buttons, because I got the sound back, lost it, rebooted and found it again :? - so I'll leave well alone for now ;-) Thanks to all you guys for your help:thumbsup::thumbsup:
