Speakers have just stopped working

  Si_L 09:43 16 Aug 2007

I accidentally hit the sleep button on my computer, so I pressed wake up and nothing happened. So I rebooted it, and it worked, but the speakers don't.

It is plugged in and powered, and I haven't unplugged anything, I have double checked the plugs.

Any suggestions?

Thanks :)

Right click on the black loudspeaker symbol in the task bar at the bottom right and select 'Open Volume Control'.

Check that nothing has been muted.

Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>General tab. It's very likely that the first check box (i.e. Mute) has been Enabled.

Uncheck it and, if necessary, tick the Add Volume Icon to Task bar box.

Another possibility is that your onboard sound or sound card has been Disabled as the Default Sound Device.

From the same route as above, ensure from the Audio and Video tabs that one or the other is the Default Sound Device.

it might be worth unistalling, re-booting and re-istalling the sound card software...

Cheers Stuartli, your post worked. Don't know how it happened though!

Ta everyone :)
