hey will someone please help me out here.
heres my problem my volume suddenly stopped working when i got on. i currently had volume to come out of the speakers mounted inside of my monitor. i tried volume with my headset but that did not work either.
ive gone thru the volume adjustments and controls and everyhting seems to be fine.
except that the fact is i can tamper with all volume on all the master voulume so forth but i cannot mess with the balance on pc speaker or microphone it is a shade of white that i cannot move left or right.
All the hardware seems to be set right ive checked my chords behind comp and everything i do not know whats going on here. someone please help me.


Thankyou for your time,
Mufasa560 :whistling:

Hi mufasa560...

If you have the correct sound device drivers installed...check the XP sound settings in Contro Panel.
  • Open Control Panel and double-click on the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  • Under the "Sounds" tab, select "Windows default" in the Sounds Scheme drop down menu.
  • Under the "Audio" tab, make sure that your sound device (intel® integrated audio) is listed in the top two sections...if not, select it from the drop down menu.
  • Under the "Voice" tab, make sure your sound device (intel® integrated audio) is listed in both boxes...if not, select it.
  • Under the "Volume" tab, put a tick in the box to "Place volume icon in the taskbar".
  • Click "Apply" and then "Ok".
Now look down by the clock...is there a little speaker there? If yes, double-click on it and make sure there is not a tick in the box next to "Mute" and that the Volume sliders are all set to at least halfway.

If you make no changes here...let me know.

Reboot...Sound?

Right click on My Computer and choose "Properties". Click the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager" button. Locate you audio device under "Sound, video, and game controllers" and right click on it, and choose "Properties". Under the "General" tab, is the device enabled and is it working properly?

Man...this is a strange one.

Do a system restore to just before this happened...like to yesterday. See if that clears it up.

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, click on System Restore. Follow the prompts to restore your machine to yesterday or even the day before.
