As the title says. No sound on it whatsoever.
How do I enable it, from where and how. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif

Go to Control Panel / Sounds and audio devices. Tab "Volume", click Advanced button, enable your choices and control their volume.
Also on tab "Audio", click on Volume. ;)

What have you got there?

A question. Your speakers are connected to something and the power to them is turned on correct? Well since it says you don't have an actual seperate card for your audio, what exactly are your audio cable(s) plugged into?

There was this one program I thought that it was like a WMP,you know those programs for music, I
unistalled that 2 days ago and from then on I have no sound. How ta heck was I to know that that was my sound...this is not fair. And this guy who sold me the comp, it was working fine until few days ago and I keep calling him he says he'll call back...that never happened...idiot.I'm losing my patiance here.
As for the "connection",I assume you'r talking about wire for sound,it's just fine,I don't know if it goes with anything else...I gave ya everytihng I know.
So judging by that screenie,Joseph can you reccomend me anything?

I recommend you find out which sounddevice is on your motherboard.
You have to reinstall the sounddrivers. Look if you have a cd with the drivers; if not, friendly ask the idiot to give it to you.
Or maybe you can download them.

To find out, click Start / Run / type in
dxdiag
click OK. Choose to save all information.
Open the textfile and read under "sound devices" what it says.
Or, copy and paste the whole text into your next reply. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

You may have onboard (on the motherboard) audio, which may need to be enabled in your BIOS. Do you by any chance know the model # or manufacturer of your motherboard?

Here's what happened;
I called him, and told him that if it has (which it does have, I found out) something to do with me uninstalling that program and now I don't have sound,how do I install it back. He said put your MotherBoard CD in, go to audio/sound and install it and it should be fine. The problem? I don't think that I can find the MotherBoard CD! How does it look like.....ok stupid question,he said it's supposed to be writen on it that is a motherboard's CD, but I can't find it anywhere.
I'll ask my parents if they put it somewhere.
Hopefully I'll have sound at the end of the day...
