Go to your CONTROL PANEL and double-click on Sound & Audio Devices. Then click on the AUDIO tab. What is listed for the Default Device under SOUND PLAYBACK?

Also, are their any items in DEVICE MANAGER (Right click MY COMPUTER, select PROPERTIES, then click on the HARDWARE tab and then DEVICE MANAGER) that have a yellow exclamation or question mark next to them?

Not meaning to be funny - Are you 100% sure everything is installed, plugged in and connected to the right holes?

Good point, make sure you have the speakers plugged into the correct slot. Best way to solve this is to either play an mp3 or insert an audio cd and let it run in Windows Media Player, then go and switch the speaker plug from one slot to the next until you hear the sound. Of course make sure the volume isn't too low or muted in windows and that the speakers are on and the volume is turned up at least half way.

One thing too, is there a volume icon in your system tray by the clock that allows you to adjust the volume level?

When you try Fenor's idea with windows media player, make sure the volume stripe is pushed over to 100 and that nothing is muted.

Gerald I had a look around and I see that you are having more than one problem in the XP forum but have not posted a HiJack This log could you please Read This and then post in the Malware Forum, not here. Once they say you are clean come back here and we will help you with what you need. (I have put this in all his questions because I think they have the same cause)

Edit: He did this topic twice Copy
