    To solve this issue, Open Run command simply by pressing Windows button + R and type Services.msc . Windows services will Open up .Now you will see multiple option of services in the scroll box. Just scroll down to “Windows Audio”. Now double click on it. Open the general tab and select “Automatic” in Start Up type. Your problem will be solved. This problem only occurs when the Automatic option is disabled or not turned on.

    Solution :
    if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
    you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
    a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
    right click to install driver also
    click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
    click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have made the correct adjustments there


    click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can make adjustments there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
    hope this helps

    Hello,

    this problem is hardware related.. all you have to do is to open the cabinet and then reseat the audio device.....

    one more thing check for the CMOS battery inside the motherboard and remove it and replug it in holder.
