Ever since upgrading my PC to win Xp pro, I have no sound. I seem to have the right drivers. My volume is turned up. My speakers are connected. My speakers work o.k. There doesny appear to be a conflict.

This one has me stumped. I have never had such hassle with sound....therefore I am up against a brick wall and really =#]=-=#./# off!!

There must be someone out there who can make my life better.

Thanks in advance,

Even though you may have the right drivers, they still might not be installed properly. Open the device manager and see if your sound drivers are indeed installed and working.

Try updating the sound driver to the latest version. You can usually get this update from your driver manufacturer's website. Some sound drivers are too old to work on XP and that's why they need to be updated.

Well you could go to do this.
Start>Run and type in dxdiag
click on sound tab and test it.
If you hear something you are on mute with the player you are trying to use.

This happened to me before and i think you might have muted it by accident. :tazz:
