    Help Request: Help with no sound on my computer
    #1
    Hello all,

    I was hoping I can throw out a problem that upi guys can solve. All of you well know know by now that I'm good at half assed researching a problem and barfing it out (this was before I left work). This issue is not one of those cases:

    I have absolutely no sound coming from my computer, whether it be from my headphones or my speakers (I have bose speakers and head phones). The CPU is running like the sound should be coming out (not on mute, or no other technical issues I can see).

    This has been an intermittent problem, in the past but now seems to have just konked out.

    Any ideas or suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Chris

    the one time i had issues with no sound, the following happened:
    the keyboard 'thought' someone was pressing the 'volume down' key.
    i replaced the batteries and it solved the issue.

    Thanks Bob, I replaced all the batteries on the CPU just to be sure. The keyboard runs off a cord and the mouse is a remote (I'm anal enough to have replaced those just to be sure).

    It's almost like if there is a audio card if that's fucking up...

    All shows the audio should be running fine but it's not... fucking strange???


    Thanks for the response Bob...I'm going nuts!!!


    All I do is sit on the computer, go on boards, listen to music, and Watch Latch Law & Order SVU on Hulu or torrent.

    Now I'm watching Catfish on MTV with my son...Witch I'll say is pretty interesting... All I can say is son't believe all you read on the internet...but back on topic... once I get my sound back I'll start watching it here...

    Thanks, Bob. I used to have a remote keyboard and mouse... I'd replenish the batteries for each... but when my keyboard broke down, I bought a new keyboard,which was wired (I'd figure it would give me no more problems).
    Now my keyboard is wired , and my mouse is still remote.

    I just don't know wtf IS GOING ON!!

    I Guess my computer is shit!!!

    hit the area where the audio jack is or diddle it as if it were prom night.

    if that doesn't do it, check out your system manager and see if there is an error showing up.

    There's a troubleshoot program I think... try the control panel
    Maybe "Manage Audio Devices"?

    ^As Cole has written.

    Q: Do you get Windows startup up tune, when booting the PC ?
    This tune -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=095XUlKnQSY

    Ensure speaker port is connected to a proper output device.
    My speaker is housed in the monitor, so there's a connection from the speaker port on the desktop PC to the monitor.

    There are many articles on 'troubleshooting sound problems on Windows 7'. You could try them.

    Try to isolate the problem by working outwards from PC speakers to headphones (whatever).

    Also, try a site like howstuffworks.com to understand basics of how sound is created in a Computer.
