No sounds - at all!

Dell PC just 6 months old - working just fine until 2 weeks ago, then silence. Done all the checks, trouble-shooting, etc. PC thinks its working - that's what it says in the dialog box. Speakers (yamaha) separately powered - on and ready to go. Is it time to act on the warranty?

When you say done all the checks, does that mean making sure it isnt accidently on mute, reinstalled the sound drivers or checked the speaker cables as well?

Check with your media players that the sound isn't turned down or on mute in one of them.

Just this minute happened to me, was using Real player and turned the volume down, closed it and noticed that all sound wasn't working.

Turned it back up in real and everything now working ok

Nothing's muted. I haven't tried re-installing the sound drivers. I'm not sure how to.

Over the weekend I lost all sound. Did all the checks mute/cables etc any thing the kids could have touched - nothing. Then did system restore to when I knew the sound was working, hey presto I've got sound. No idea what the problem was though.

Hello - were you playing games or something when the sound went, or just silent on booting up. Do you have a soundcard in one of your slots?
