Lost Sound

  Leehndrsn 13:17 05 Nov 2006

I'm having problems with my sound, using WMP 11 I can listen to music fine with no problems however I get no sound from windows such as shutting down/starting up etc and also no sound when on internet, I have an Aureon 5.1 Fun card installed, drivers reinstalled for that and the AC 97 audio...could one be clashing with the other as its a stand alone sound card? Heard nothing while using the test directsound in dxdiag also.

Thanks Lee

Have you tried accessing the BIOS and disabling the onboard sound to see if that cures your problem.

Will try it thanks

Any ideas? Also no sound on video's from Pc Zone disc

In Control Panel, have you checked Sounds and Audio Devices' Properties and the configuration for each tab?

Also check on the Volume tab that Sound hasn't been Muted...:-)

In addition, if you Enable Volume icon for the Taskbar you can check that required elements are all Enabled, including CD player etc.

Does the Aureon 5.1 Fun card have a Control Panel?

  Leehndrsn 20:00 05 Nov 2006

Everything has been checked and where applicable set to use the sound card, where will i find option to enable sound on taskbar? something I have never used before...It has a control panel yes, nothing is set to mute and volume's are at max. As I said I can play music in WMP 11 so something is working but nothing else will play sound...It's driving me mad

Ok have it on taskbar now, everything enabled and not muted

Now that the onboard sound is disabled in the bios,have you tried loading the sound card drivers again from the disc ?

  Leehndrsn 20:51 05 Nov 2006

I have yes, even removed the card and re installed drivers...however I now get no sound at all not even WMP
