Tech: No sound from computer
I hope this isn’t an inappropriate subject, but, having consulted many on-line fora, message boards and advice sites, I’m truly at the end of my tether. I’m hoping that someone here on the mustard board is far more techno savvy than I am.
Technical information: I run a PC using Windows XP as the operating system.
I play most of my CDs through my computer, but earlier this week my keyboard packed up. That might not seem relevant, but, in the process of solving the problem (via the purchase of a USB keyboard because the appropriate port had packed up) I discovered that I had somehow severed the cable connecting my speakers to the PC.
However, installing replacement speakers (and I’ve tried three different sets and all work on my backup PC) has not brought back the sound to my computer. So I’ve checked all the appropriate settings via Device Manager and BIOS, I’ve reinstalled drivers and hardware and checked that the sound card is recognised and it is seemingly functioning. I’ve made sure that ‘volume control’ has none of the ‘mute’ boxes checked.
So is there something glaringly obvious that I’ve missed? Any suggestions will be more than gratefully received.
