    Unable to hear any type of sound from PC running on Windows 7

    For the past few weeks, it is not possible to hear anything from my PC upgraded to Windows 7. I checked the sound settings and they are fine. How can I fix up this issue?

    You can use the Playing Audio Troubleshooter for fixing up the issues with system sound. For that, first click the ‘Start’ button on the desktop and wait until the start menu pop up on the screen. Navigate through the options visible on that menu and select ‘Control Panel’ from it. Locate the search box available on the Control Panel window. Enter troubleshooter into the search box and click on ‘Troubleshooting’ option. You can then find ‘Troubleshoot audio playback’ item under ‘Hardware and Sound’ option. Click on that item and follow the instructions in the troubleshooter to fix the audio issues.

    Hi,

    First of all use Windows "Problems and Troubleshooter" option to diagnose the problem.

    Are you sure your Sound system speakers are in good health? Check for that.

    What about the connections , cables, jack and sockets ? are they all functioning?

    What about the Audio Card? is it built in or additional card ? is it functioning?

    What about the driver software of Sound ? Is it updated and okay? if not download a new copy of Sound Driver from Microsoft or any third party software you are using and install it.

    Thanks.

    Hello dear...........

    Problem with the audio drivers.
    Open control panel and then tap on sound and hardware...
    Now tap on device manager...
    Now select the audio drivers and then update it.
    or
    insert mother board dvd and install the audio driver.
    or
    Open the manufacturer's site and download a latest version..

    Hope you may understand.........

    Dear friend,

    First make sure that your sound system is working with another PC or any mobile phone.

    Then check out whether can you hear the sound during log on screen.

    If you can't hear that sound then there is a problem with your audio driver.

    To solve this:
    1.Go to Control Panel> Device manager> Sound, video and game controllers.
    2. Check out that -Is there any (!) mark on the menu ?
    3. If there is (!) on the menu then there is a problem with your audio driver.
    May you have installed the driver but sometime an old driver is not compatible with the new operating system Windows 7.
    4. If you are online, then right click on your Sound driver name and then click "Update Driver Software".
    Your problem will definitely be solved.

    If you doesn't see any (!) mark, then there is no problem with your audio driver and you should check the audio volume
    settings in notification area in the task bar.

    Thanks!
