Right click on the speaker icon on the taskbar then click on 'open volume controls' on the screen that opens make sure that nothing is muted that shouldn't be, also check the options/properties (top left of screen) for anything untoward.

right this is nearing a result took speaker jack and lobbed it in cd jack at the front and it plays on a music cd, same on the rewriter to , but wont play music data files from hard drive. So with my limited expertise i reckon that we have a sound card on the shift or it is creamed what do you chaps think NOBBY
