Hi Everyone,

I need help to resolve this problem with my new Sony Vaio FE11s laptop.

Heres whats wrong:
Sound Card is SigmaTel sound card.
Drivers are installed properly and all sound diags are testing successful, WIN MEDIA PLAYER and other players are playing songs okay but no sound is coming out of the speakers. All volume buttons are turned to full nothing is mute (Unless there is a secret master mute button)

I have tried to use headphones to confirm and still no sound in headphones either.

This is what I have done so far:
1. Uninstalled all sound drivers and installed them back on.
2. Ran a complete system recovery from the ghost drive of system.
3. Formatted the whole drive and installed a fresh copy of windows xp.

After installing fresh copy of the windows xp I can hear a very faint sound from the headphones when i put full voulme, but very faint.

I will be very grateful to you guys if this can be resolved. Its a lovely laptop and I was looking forward to use it but now i am just working flatout to resolve this issue.

Check the sound mixer software does not have 'mute' enabled for the master volume or any of the output sliders (wave, cd player, etc.). Check same in Windows own 'Sounds & Audio Devices" in Control Panel.

Also make sure speaker jack is plugged into the correct output port on the PC.
