    Unable to hear sound while playing FSX games on Windows 7 PC

    Since yesterday, I am not able to hear the planes, multiplayer voices and other sounds when playing FSX games with my PC running on Windows 7. I have restarted my PC and re-installed the game. Still, the app behaves in the same way. What are the troubleshooting steps required to resolve this issue?

    First of all check the sound settings of the gaming program through its documentation and see whether the sound is enabled or not. If you can’t hear the sound even after enabling it, then restart your PC through a clean start up procedure. For that, you need to first log into your PC as administrator and perform the following steps.
    • Click on ‘Start’ button at the bottom part of the screen
    • Type msconfig into search box and press ‘Enter’ key
    • Click on ‘General’ tab in ‘System Configuration Utility’ dialog box
    • Click on ‘Selective Startup’ option
    • Uncheck the check box near ‘Load Startup Items’ with a single click
    • Check the ‘Hide All Microsoft Services’ check box after clicking on ‘Services’ tab
    • Click on ‘Disable All’ option and press ‘OK’ button
    • Hit the ‘Restart’ button while prompted
    Still if you can’t resolve this issue then install latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Another solution available to resolve the issue is to update the sound card driver. If the problem persists afterwards, then play any music or video file on your PC and check whether it is possible to hear the sounds in Windows. If you can’t hear the song or video, then contact the manufacturer of PC or sound card and ask the troubleshooting steps.

    Hello friend,

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

    1.Firstly check the other applications sound.

    2.If you have no problem with other files.

    3.Then the problem is with the game files.

    4.For every game there will be separate audio files.

    5.The audio files of the FSX game may be damaged.

    6.So you try to fix it by re-installing the game.

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