I updated the audio driver and checked to see that sound card was securly fitted, but still no sound. What else could be wrong?

May suggest running Belarc Advisor, this is a free program which will tell you all about your PC and what is installed in it. You may then be able to answer the questions with more confidence.

I used to have a Time computer and this is what i used to use. Vynal Audio Driver.

It must be about 8 years old.

Just something else to check.

When I had the Time computer my grandaughter turned the sound of using the keyboard.

Took me about 2 days to figure out why I was getting no sound.

@ Chronos the 2nd, yes it is an old PC which someone gave me to fix. The speaker cable is connected to the green socket and the speaker icon is shown and the volune controls work OK. Could right in assuming that this type of PC will only output sound on a special pair of speakers which plug into two separate sockets, i.e. the green and the pink one?

The Green one is Sound coming out.

The Pink one is to plug a microphone in. (the sound from microphone goes in to the computer)

Have you checked if there is an off/on button on one of the speakers?

Have you tried with different set of speakers that you know to be in working order?

Do you have any earphones that you can try in the green socket?

OK can you right click the speaker icon in the system tray and then click on Playback devices, it might be helpful if you have a bit of music playing or a Youtube video before doing this.It does not matter at the moment that you cannot hear anything.

You should see an indication of the sound playing in Playback devices and to the left of this indication it will tell you the name of the playback device. I have a choice of three on mine. Speakers,Monitor and AMD HDMI output. There is a green tick in speakers which means that is the device that is playing sounds on my PC. What is showing in your PC?

I must tell you that I am running Windows 7,I suspect that the PC you are trying to sort has XP as it's operating system but I think it is pretty similar.

Just another daft one but it has happened before.

Check that the speakers are plugged in and switched on also check that the volume on the speakers is turned on and yes it goes into the green socket.
