have you checked device mangager for any red or yellow problem flags in the sound category? Such flags could mean wrong driver installed or it didn't install properly.

Also check the speakers on a PC on which you know the sound works okay, as the speakers themselves may be faulty.

Check in Windows that the master volume is not muted. The speaker icon in the system tray will have a red cross on it if it's muted.

Check the volume knob position on the speakers themselves if they have one.

last but by no means least (because it's a classic mistake I've made myself) make sure the speaker plug is in the correct jack (speaker out) on the sound card rear panel, because the "line in" and "mic in" jacks take the same size plug so it's easy to get it wrong. The jacks are colour-coded usually, but on my Soundblaster card the position of each colour in the manual doesn't match what's on the card.

Please Go to

I seen you reply to lots of my post. Thanks for all the help youve been helping me with. tried to fix my other comp that got that nasty virus. but nothing can be helpe with it. it was 10 years old. so think i might just buy a new one. the comp you are helping me with now is my gfs dads old comp. i got the ethernet driver working so i can go online and try to fix the rest. but no sound and for some reason says invalid xp product key. so trying to figure out why there windows isnt vaild anymore.



There's your problem. I would suggest rebooting the system and going into the bios. Then find the advanced or integrated area. Check to make sure that the audio is enabled. I am including the instructions to get into the bios.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS
[list]
Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced or Integrated Peripherals area and click Enter

Sounds like dead audio chip then.
At this point i would suggest a new audio card but that will not fix the front panel problems I don't think unless the audio card has internal connections for the front panel and the wires would need to be long enough to reach it.
