I can hear the clicks and stuff sometimes but i cant hear music or sound effects from games...
When i click on the Volume Control icon in my tool bar it says
"There are no active mixer devices available. And then it gives me some intructions on what to do... But then when i go to Control Panel-Printers And Other Hardware-Add Hardware Then i do a scan for new hardware for sound and it says everything is installed... oh well i dont listen to to much music anyways lol

audio and sounds
uncheck mute box
slider is at medium or max
icon is in system tray
and under audio tab
are all the defaults
are they all Sound Blaster
you still may have to trouble shoot your drivers
or change /update your sound card

All the above checks out to the affirmative Mr. Freeze.
Now...I have this thingie called a Surround Mixer...this is where I changed from speakers to headset way back when when I got the headset (never touched anything since until now to check out if the speakers work or not). The sliders I see are... Master Control which contains sliders for volume, treble & bass. Second Area is labelled Source and it contains individual sliders for Wave/Midi Synth/CD Audio/Line In/S/PDIF-In/CD Digital...there are red "x's" at the S/PDIF-In & CD Digital which I presume means they are turned off?...Next there is a REC Area...you can change the settings there...currently it is on "What You Hear"...The Rec & button is red and so is the vertical line which I assume denotes volume (its at 80%)...The other settings available are Midi Synth/S/PDIF-In/CD Digital/Analog Mix (Line/CD/Aux/TAD/PC)/Wave.
Ok..this means nothing to me....I assume this mixer is associated with the Audigy2ZS SoundBlaster card. I clicked on the red x's and tried to play something..it shows as playing via media player...but cant hear it through the phones...Sheesh for not touching anything from one day to another (no adjustments) why does this happen?

as for headphones never used them
i use mostly windows media player console
there are a variety of sound consoles
i use windows ...probably because its simple
and easy to access
so i wouldnt be to concerned about sound blaster console
have you tried other head phones
when you plug head phones in
do hear or get a lot of static
connection could be bad
but like i said never tried headphones

On the laptop, music files play via Windows Media player sounding great..no static.
I use media player as well...the only reason I use the SB Mixer is to select speakers or phones.

nothing comes to mind
the only thing i could think of is
check your sound properties and see what the settings are
if its same OS on laptop then see if the properties are the same
or try a different set of head phones
are you using IE7
go to tools and internet options
under general tab
and delete all
restart you computer
try headphones again

Since I have sound in my speakers I guess this topic should be moved into hardware peripherals...I have logitech stereo phones and they don't work...and tried my daughter's Labtec 502's and they dont work either...both sets of phones work on the Toshiba laptops...sighs...
I have IE6 and Firefox and use Firefox mostly and clean out the cache on a regular basis.
