    This is one of the most common issues that windows computers users face. To resolve this issue you need to first check if the mute option is turned on. This can be checked on the right bottom corner of taskbar. If it is not in mute, then you need to make sure that the volume control of the video player is not muted and is kept at an audible range. Next step that you can do is to play another file or an audio file to check if you can hear any sound on the computer. If yes, then it could be a problem with the video file and if it is a no, then there could be some issue with the sound card installed on the windows computer. Not all computers have built in speakers. Sometimes you may have to use external speakers.

    Old PC's dont have built in speakers. Usually speakers are not built inside the PC.
    You need to buy a new speaker and connect it to the PC.
    The speaker has two wires one is the power cable and other audio jacket.
    Better use a earphone and test it whether you hear the sound.
    Windows vista onwards have the driver for sound..
    If you have lower versions than vista then go for sound drivers.

    Hello,

    friend there might be a possibility that you by mistake have kept your audio on mute.

    To check that click on the right bottom of screen, where the date and time is displayed.

    Now check if that is not mute.

    If mute is not the problem than you must check if the media player on which you are working may have some issues.

    If these 2 are not the problems than you should try installing the audio drivers again on your computer.


    Regards

    this can be hardware or Software for Software..

    For software it is easy just go to the device manager by clicking start button and then in the search box type device manager.

    Now open device Manager.

    Click In the sound, Video and game controller section to unhide under section options.

    There you see name of your sound driver just right click on that and select Update (for installing latest driver)or scan for hardware changes.

    you can also uninstall it and again install it from there..

    or Download the latest driver from the makers website.


    thanks.......

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..............

    1.Yes, all the computers will have built in speakers.

    2.But they produce a very minute sound that you may cannot hear properly.

    3.If you have the external speakers still the sound is not working only when playing video.

    4.Then you check the settings of that video player may be muted.

    5.Or this may be the problem of that video file it may have not got the sound along with it.

    6.If it works in another device properly then you uninstall and re-install the Video Player software.

    I hope by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day.........

Next thing which can be done would be to perform a further report or an audio report to examine if you can perceive every good on the computer. If so, after that whether it's a issue with flick report and also should it be the absolutely no, after that there could possibly be quite a few trouble with the actual good cards that come with the actual microsoft windows computer. You cannot assume all desktops have constructed in speakers. Occasionally you should use exterior speakers.
