andybmth1,

I'm sorry you didn't get the help you required. We're all volunteers, giving up our time to help others. Sometimes we miss people. For that, we have The Waiting Room. If you've waited for 3 days or more, please feel free to post a link to this topic so it can be brought to our attention.

Hello andybmth1 Welcome to GeekstoGo.

All of us here are GeekstoGo are volunteers. We have our own real jobs that pay the bread and butter. We also all have families and other obligations that keep us from always being able to respond .

We do the best we can to take care of everyone. Unfortunately sometimes posts fall though the cracks. Reposing (bumping) your own thread may delay help being received.

If it has been 3 days sense and have not received a reply you may post in our Waiting room

More information and instructions on how to post in the Waiting Room are found in the link below. Please follow ALL the instructions.
http://www.geekstogo...ays-t95503.html

In addition to that Windows Vista Is still a New Operating System. Some of us are still on Windows XP hand have not done much troubleshooting with vista yet. This reduces the amount of people that can post in response to your thread. A lot of the reason why so many posts go unanswered is because we are overbooked on questions and not enough people to help. Some areas require a bit of specialization and those areas have less people to respond and answer those questions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
That being said.

Did you ever get your issue fixed?
Have you ever plugged in a Digital Camera or web cam into your computer?
What Microsoft Article did you follow when checking problems for no sound?

Click on start.
In the start search box type sound and press enter.
What is checked in the Playback Tab.
