    take a look in the device manager to see if the drivers are installed for your sound card

    did you have sound through itunes/you tube previously?

    sorry, if you can't read it, it says:

    'Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration.Audio/video … 'Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration.Audio/video playback may not operate properly.'

    Sorry, don't really understand what to do lol :oops:

    check the driver for it - it may need to be reinstalled

    or you could just try restoring the system to an earlier time (when the speakers worked) which should solve the problem but be wary of changes you might lose in doing this

    and how is that done :oops:

    right click on the desktop icon "my computer" select properties then select the hardware tab then device manager. have a look at the sound section to see if anything has a red x or yellow exclamation mark next to it

    I don't have the little speaker in the bottom right of the screen where the clock is, i am sure that should be there??

    to re-install the drivers you'll either need to find the original driver disk for your motherboard or find out what motherboard you have installed or what sound hardware its using. you can then usually run an installation program which will install the drivers. but you will first need to find out what its using.

    your drivers aren't installed. google for siw.exe download and run it. it will tell you what motherboard you have. you can then search the manufacturers site and d/l the driver you need

    downloaded siw.exe from download3k.com/SIW…tml
    and run it, now what??

    run the file and then scroll down to the hardware section and note what it says for motherboard

    thats the info i got from the motherboard tab, now how do i download the driver

    if there is a little ! on the sound driver then it needs to be reinstalled.

    As I said, you can use system restore just to take settings back to a time when it was working

    thats an asrock motherboard. google 775V88 and you'll find the asrock site. search there for sound drivers

    asrock.com/mb/…775
    download the sound card files and run them

    do i have to download all 7 listed??

    no just the one that says audio there are 2 there one for 64bit windows the other is for all other versions. so if you have standard xp then d/l the second in the list about 21mb
