Why is sound not working1 min readReading Time: < 1 minutes
There are a number of reasons why sound might not be working on your computer. One common issue is that the volume might be turned down or off. If you can’t hear any sound from your computer, check the volume control on your taskbar to make sure it’s turned up.
Another possibility is that your audio driver might not be installed or working properly. To check, open the Control Panel and navigate to Device Manager. Under Sound, video and game controllers, you should see your audio driver listed. If the driver is not installed or is having problems, you can try reinstalling it or updating your BIOS.
If the problem is not with the volume or the driver, it might be a hardware issue. Try disconnecting all external devices, such as speakers or headphones, and see if the problem persists. If it does, there might be a problem with your sound card or motherboard.
If you’ve tried all of these troubleshooting steps and still can’t get your sound to work, it’s possible that your computer’s sound card has failed. In this case, you might need to replace the sound card or motherboard.
