Are you using a separate sound card, or "built in" on board sound. Either way, you need to reinstall the audio drivers.

If using on board sound, make sure it is enabled in BIOS.

Hi thanks,i think its built in,also im not sure how too get into the Bios.dont wnat too mess anything up,as im not that well up on comps.

Go to start, run, type in services .msc; then scroll down down until you find windows audio. Right click windows audio and select properties, then look for where it says startup type, make sure that selection is set to automatic.reboot

might help...

You may need to reinstall your motherboard chipset driver..reboot the system...and then reinstall the audio driver.
If you need help with the mobo details, use the following program to give "mainboard/chipset" details.
