Hello everyone,
I have an old 1.2g machine that I only want to use for one purpose, my daughter to do her Driving test theory in her own room. It is running win2kpro with no programs other than the defaults SP4 installed.
The problem is there is no sound. When I go to control panel/sounds & mulitimedia/sounds . sounds is set at min on the slider but i can`t move it from this point. Any suggestions please.

Thanks

Ray

Have you installed the sound drivers?

Post mobo specs please.

No, where are they likely to be?

You SHOULD have a CD-ROM that came with the computer/sound card/motherboard.
This disc contains the Drivers

Thanks all, I don`t know the mobo specs at the moment, can find out, If I go to device manager/multimedia audio controller it says "the drivers for this device are not installed" if I click on driver it says "no driver files are required or have been loaded for this device" hence my confusion.

Maybe the sound card is duff and it doesn't work. Have you got an off-board sound card?

It`s part of the mobo, worked last time it was used about 3 weeks ago but I have re-installed the O/S.

Have installed sound card drivers, device manager says working properly, tested speakers on another machine OK, in sounds and multimedia cannot move the volume slider from LH side ie as low as pos or off.
