    Hello MDL,

    I have such trouble in one PC:

    There is no sound in that PC. There is looks everything correctly in the sound settings. all drivers are installed on device manage. I updated it too but nothing. When click test icon on the sound setting from control panel error window pop up, it did not pass that testing.

    what can be a that trouble?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I had that problem once and when I opened the computer I found that there were no speakers.
    The dealer I bought it from was very embarrassed.

    Spearekrs turned on? Power supply plugged in? Bad power supply? Malfunctioning surge suppressor socket? Wires not securely plugged in? Cat or other pet chewed through a wire? These are all real world occurrences for me.

    I bet is a plug connector issue, on the other hand maybe is a sound card (integrated or not) trouble.

    Try a different sound card. Try the speakers on different computer. Try different speakers on this computer. Something is either not properly connected, turned off or broken. Just because a component is new doesn't mean it hasn't failed.

    Trying a different sound card takes too much work, just boot with a live linux CD. If the hardware is fine, it will have sound. Then you can suspect a driver issue. If you have no sound under linux either, you have a hardware issue somewhere.

    Naaaww.... just takes a couple of minutes and the experience gained is valuable. But the LiveCD approach is a good one.

    Even new parts or complete machines could come up with flaws or defective from factory, this is why you get one year warranty ;)

    Don't forget the money spent on the sound card and the work you do to earn that money.

    Or the time you waste for the sake of a cheap sound card for testing purposes and anyone doing computer repairs e.c.t
    .Should or will have extra hardware available so they can swap things out so you can eliminate the problem if it is onboard then usually driver problem or faulty hardware

    Money? Cost of an el-cheapo sound card? If your an enthusiast you'd best be prepared and have at least a few spare parts. I don't know a single computer builder/experimenter who doesn't have a box full of old "junk" parts, cards and such that come in handy every now and then for the very purpose I mentioned. I've accumulated CPUs, sound cards, RAM sticks, cables, connectors and such by the dozen over the years. I keep them around because they may be old but they still work and sometimes I need one.

    As far as it being hard work, you're got to be kidding. Swapping cards, memory sticks, hard drives, fans, power supplies and the like is what we do. It's all a part of the "hobby" and just the nature of the beast. If swapping out a sound card is work that's too hard for you, I'd say you're in the wrong hobby. As far as the work I do to make the money to facilitate my hobby, that's a labor of love. The reason I work at any job is to enable me to do those things I love to do. Why else would I have a job?

    Lucily the forum terms and conditions don't require members to be system builders and stuff like that, so assuming someone is one who comes here for help is a false assumption. They probably wouldn't even require help then.
