Have you ever wanted to listen to a song, movie, or sound effect on the system only to be sad when there are no sounds coming out of the computer? This is an issue that happens a lot and can be caused by a lot of different things going on in the computer. Listed below are the easiest ways to try and figure out why there are no computer sounds coming when you want them.
The first thing to do is to check to see if your computer speakers are working. If you are using a laptop check to make sure it has speakers. If it does then that is good and you can move onto the next point. If you are using a desktop computer system make sure that there are speakers and that they are plugged into the computer to receive the sound. The next thing to check is that the speakers are plugged into a power source as many speakers need power plug to work and make sound.
The next thing to do is to make sure that the speakers are turned on. If you are using a laptop computer then the speakers will turn on with the computer. If you are using a desktop computer check to make sure that the power button is glowing, if it is not press the power, or on button to turn the speakers on.
Now that the speakers are on and connected to the computer the next thing to check is to make sure that the computer is not on Mute. To do this make sure it the computer is not on mute double click on the speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the taskbar. If the speaker is set on mute you must unselect mute to make the sound come out of the computer.
Now that the computer is connected to the speakers and the computer is not on mute there should be sound coming through the speakers. If there is no sound coming from the speaker there is a possibility that the driver required to run the sound card or video card is not up to date. If this is the case the sound can be restored if the driver is updated.
Another possibility is that there is an issue within the registry and that is the reason there is no computer sound. To ensure that there are no issues in the registry it is best to run a registry cleaner and see if there are any problems within the computer that would be causing the lack of sound to play through the speakers. Once the registry cleaner has scanned the registry it will say if there are any errors that would cause the issue were there is no computer sound coming out of the speakers.
