Iv lost all sound on my PC ? , iv opened the small speaker icon and they are not muted, iv played a video on yahoo and i can see the volume bar jump up and down as its responding to the film clip but im not hearing anything, iv recently installed a web cam and wondered if that was it but after uninstalling it ,its still the same
thanks for any help

Check that the speakers are connected to the computer correctly.

I would imagine that the web cam drivers have conflicted with your sound card or onboard sound driver.
I would try reinstalling or rolling back your sound driver.
Could check in your bios in case the web cam disabled it there,which can happen.

I'm with Brynit- I had the same problem but it was simply that in installing something new i had moved the PC and the lead for the speakers had been partly pulled out from the socket!
Check every connection carefully!

Iv checked out all the leads and they are all in place, iv uninstalled the web cam ,but no change. i have my PC linked to my sterio, the leads are fine to that and if i unplug it i should just get sound out the monitor but its still dead ? iv looked over all the setting and its got me stumped.
there is a new program ( i think its new ) called realtek high definition audio driver. iv uninsulated it, it tells me to re-start the pc, i do so but its back on when i re-start ???
im really lost on this on

If it was an update from Microsoft.Go to device manager and roll back the driver and see if that works.

You say you have opened the volume control via the speaker icon to check it was not muted. I assume you checked the volume control. Did you check that the wave control was not muted as well.
