Windows Volume Control

I have a problem!
I cannot get a sound card to produce any sound from a music CD. The cd drive is working ok and the tracks show and appear to be playing in Media Player but no sound!. I suspect that the Volume Control is set to mute but when I try to access it from Accessories,Entertainment nothing happens - all other options work OK. Any suggestions.

Try clicking on the speaker icon next to the clock to check if it is muted. If it not muted then click on > Options > Properties. Select Recording and make sure "Line In" is ticked then click OK and put a tick in the select box under "Line In"

Unfortunately there is no speaker icon on which to click?

Look in start - settings - control panel - sounds and audio and see if that helps

If you click on your Sound card/sounds and audio devices you should be able to access the volume control you are saying you do get sound from other sources

Hi, It's possible that the volume control isn't even loaded!!!
Go in to Control Panel/ Add, Remove Programs/ Windows Setup tab/ Multimedia/ and put a tick in Volume control.
You will need your Windows CD for this.

PS. the above refers to win 98SE but win XP should be very similar.

Windows Media Player itself has a Mute button...:-)

Hi All

Thank you for your responses. I've been away for a while and not yet caught up with the problem again. I should have mentioned that the OS is Win98. I have already worked through some of the suggestions without success. I will come back later
