Hi Pierce, Jim has asked to pass on a message saying that he won't be replying to any emails or be on h2g2 until he has recovered from a bad bout of flu which could be at the earliest on Saturday when will be able to get the cyber cafe or later.

I have heard again from Jim and he says he feels better now but it was too cold to go to the cyber cafe as they don't have any heating for the shop and he can't access h2g2 at the library it has a security block on the site.smiley - choc ++smiley - stiffdrink +smiley - coffee

Hi Pierce, I wonder if you can help as I have lost my sound completely from my computer. I have done a complete check of my sound systems including my inbuilt speakers in my monitor but they came out as okay.

I am running a Microsoft Windows XP 2002 Home edition, Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600. The system manufacturer is Packard Bell NEC and the system type is X86-based PC. Total Physical Memory 768.00 MB, Available Physical Memory 338.68 MB,
Total Virtual Memory 2.00, GB Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB. Computer Intel Pentium 4.

The audio device I have is SigmaTel Audio for sound playback and sound recording. For the Midi music playback it is Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth.

Thank yousmiley - cheers

At the bottom right of your screen you should find a loudspeaker-symbol. If you do and you click it there should appear a small panel, where you can turn the volume up and down

Maybe you have one of those modern keyboards where you can (accidentally) turn off the sound by clicking one of the buttons?

If this isn't helpfull check all your connections and/or turn the computer off, remove the power chord for a minute or two and start it up again

This is all the advice I can give you, I'm afraid smiley - erm, not being a computer myself, just a wee bit experienced smiley - goodluck

Good for you smiley - ok

I don't have these problems since I changed back to smiley - applesmiley - biggrin

It is an old i (smiley - winkeye) so a lot of software can no longer be updated (solves a lot of problems!) but it w*rks fine for me: Browser with ad filter, a simple text program and tons of music is all I need. And it w*rks very well as a dvd player too (with 27'' screen) smiley - ok
