Hello,

Not sure when it happened, but I have no volume on my computer. I have checked the speakers and they are fine. I have no volume icon on the taskbar (that would have been the first thing I checked). I have gone to Control Panel, multimedia properties and the place to check to show volume icon on taskbar is checked, but grayed out. I am not sure what to do next. Any help would be appreciated.

Geeks to Go are the best! Y'all helped me out when I got a virus on my computer and did an outstanding job!

Thanks,
omegajs

I have done that many times since this problem reared its ugly head to no avail. You come on and tell me to do that and this time there is a big yellow question mark there. I click on it an it ask me to update my driver (which I thought was the problem, but wasn't getting fixed right). I update and presto it is fixed. You must have powers beyond what you are even aware of! Thank you for reminding me to look at it again. :tazz: Have a great day and as I said Geeks to Go is the BEST!

This problem has appeared again and I cannot get it fixed.
This seems to happen everytime I run my anti-virus check, but most times int the past I have been able to retrieve the sound. The same steps are not working this time. Any help?

Hi omegjs...

Open Control Panel and double click on the "Sounds" icon. What is listed in the "Schemes" menu box?

Download Everest, install it, and run it on your machine. Save a report to the desktop as a HTML file (default). Attach this report to an e-mail to me. I will PM you with my e-mail address.

When you say run it do you mean the report wizard? And if you do mean that do you want me to run the report for all pages?

Have you disabled the onboard sound device so that it doesn't conflict with the Yamaha PCI Sound card?

Have you installed the latest drivers for the Yamaha card?

How do I do the first one...and I don't know on the second. I don't even know if the Yamaha thing is what I need and if it is...I am not sure which driver I need...I have a CD and here is a print screen of what it shows I can load. I don't know if it will help you any...but there it is. :whistling:

Open Device Manager, expand the Audio Devices, right click on each device listed, choose "Properties", and post that information here for me.

We need to determing what's on the machine, which you need to be using, and which must be disabled. :whistling:

The X-Wave drivers don't really give me much to go on. Did the disk come with the computer or with an add-on audio card?

I don't see audio devices...I do see Sound, video and game controllers. When I expand that I see an icon indented underneath with no words attached to it.

General Properties says:

Device type: Sound, video, and game controllers
Manufacturer: None specified
Hardware version: Not available
Device status: This device is working properly. (I beg to differ!)
Under Device usage: neither box is checked

Driver properties says:

Provider: Blank
Date: Blank

No driver files are required to have been loaded for this device. To update the driver files for this device, click Update Driver.

I bought this computer second hand, but I think the sound card was added right before I got it.

Oh and that was all that was under the sound category. I can put a screen shot up if you would like me to.
