    No Sound After Clean Install (XP/Office Pro 2003)

    After a clean install, all updates for both XP and Office Pro 2003, there is no sound at all. Obviously I am missing something . . . any help?

    Thanks.

    I assume you started with the obvious.
    Control Panel>Sounds and audio devices. Checked all setting for proper devices, settings and nothing muted?
    Checked Device Manager for any "yellow flags" at any locations, particularly at sound devices?

    Look at the basics first.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the counsel - checked the device manager first - no flags, did that and the mute boxes on all three users on the machine - no change. Just checked it all again, nada. This happened to me once before and I can't recall the fix - it was simple, but couldn't find it then either.

    Appreciate the help, thanks.

    What type of sound card are you using?

    One more silly question. Are you playing the sound through the speakers in the monitor. If so, did you check for the mute button on the monitor?? (This happened to me once <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> )

    Hi John,

    SB Live! Wave. Finally got system sounds, did the MS Sound Troubleshoot, then Gateway driver upload - but nothing else.

    Oh well . . . Thanks.

    Hi EddyM,

    No, the speakers are desktop, not alongside the monitor - BUT thanks very much for the help.

    Does this mean that the problem is completely solved or only partially solved? Have you looked at this article ?

    What do you see in the volume controls? A quick way to look at them is Start - Run - SNDVOL32. I'm wondering if something is muted or turned down volume-wise.
