Well the title pretty much describes it, the computer goes to sleep, when you wake it up it makes no noise, whether its windows media, real player, anything off of the internet, or cd player. Nothing works! So you have to restart the computer then it works again until it falls asleep. And then once again the sound doesnt work. Any ideas?? Im racking my brain over this one! Thanks for the help i appreciate it -Kurt

Wtoad...

Actually, the solution may be as simple as updated sound card drivers. Check the manufacturer's website.

Try this for a workaround. Wake the card up...it may be asleep. Seriously. Go to "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel, click on the "Volume" tab, and move the slider in either direction or select and then deselect the "Mute" check box. "Apply" the change and click "Ok".

Download Everest Home Edition, run it, save a report, and attach it to you next post. The E-machines support Department is long on department and short on support. I'll see if I can help you round up some fresh drivers.

You can tell her that Everest is a small program, it's easily removed, is absolutely malware free, and all it does is list all the system information we need to trace down drivers and such. She might like it so much she'll end up keeping it. :tazz:
