    Lost sound after upgrading from windows xp to windows 7

    I have completed the upgrade from windows xp to windows 7 yesterday. After the completion of upgrade, i am not able to listen any kind of music because sound doesn't work at all. The sound indicator works but sound doesn't comes out. I have checked the wire and everything is fine. What can be the issue and what should i do to fix the same?

    First of all,make sure that your Playback devices are enabled. Right-click on the speaker icon which appears on your taskbar. Then Select 'Playback Devices'. Now in the empty space, Right-click and select both 'Show Disconnected/Disabled Devices'. Are you able to see icons of your Speakers or headphone?You may need to enable both of them. Run the troubleshooter to know more about issues.To do the same,click on "Start">>Control Panel. Type "Troubleshooting" in the search box which appears on the top spot and hit the enter button. Select "Troubleshooting" After that click on "hardware and Sound">>Playing Audio. Inform us,if it fixed your issue.If you are facing any issue further then feel free to add a question in this forum.

    To find a solution of the problem you need to do the following:

    Check all connected devices if they are properly connected.
    Check their condition,
    Install a fresh device driver for audio .
    To install driver for audio, insert your audio driver containing CD into optical drive and start installing the driver.
    If you are not using any external driver then the generic driver will do, for that click Start--Control Panel--System and Securities--Device Manager--sound..........--Driver--uninstall. to remove the existing, From the same
    menu select Update Driver , to install latest from microsoft and will solve your problem.
