Can anyone come up with a solution to my problem please. I have almost no sound (the sound is very very faint) when I try to play Y tube or any of my folders in my music folder.
It is not on mute. I have gone into the control panel and into the 'sound' folder and on the first panel the pointer is at low when I move it to high and then say OK it just goes back to low again. No matter what variation I try this pointer always returns to 'low' any idea what I'm doing wrong ?

Just a thought Emmy - when you adjust the slider for the volume and click OK and it then returns to where it was before - before you click on OK did you click on 'APPLY' first.... controls like this usually have the Apply, followed by the OK!

Hi Emmy

Go to control panel and select sounds and audio. Check to make sure mute is not selected next select speaker volume you will see a selection for restore defaults.....select that and then apply (if applicable) then ok. Reboot and see if that fixes it.

My solution is this...

1. Unplug the PC
2. Open front door and check for children, pets, etc.
3. Throw PC into oncoming traffic like this: neclord

You will never have to worry about sound again! Trust me on this one. hide

Hi Elizabeth

Nuccia I think you have hit 'the nail on the head' Maybe I'll just take a hammer and give everything a bash or shout a few choice words at this ???!!-- neclord and maybe then it will shout back at me.
Wink Maybe this is a Scottish computer and doesnt like listening to Italian songs Wink GGrrr
Thanks to everyone for trying to help this frustrated old wifie!!

Check the volume on any software you have installed that controls volume ... ie. Windows Media Player, PowerDVD.

Sometimes they interact with the volume control in XP.

Also check Control Panel | Sounds and Audio Devices | Volume and Audio Tabs ... and check (Volume | Speaker Settings | Advanced) that your speaker arrangement is selected - Desktop stereo speakers?

Thanks Bob
I've checked all that but the indicators re the volume settings just keep sliding back to 'low' no matter what combination I try.
I went into control panel then to 'sounds Audio Device Programmes then into sounds.
It has a 'box' there that says 'sound scheme' and at the moment there is nothing written in this box- its coloured blue but there is a drop down choice of either 'no sounds' or 'windows default' should this have 'windows default' in this box?
Be grateful for advice on this Just dont want to try it just in case I lose the sound on my Skype neclord

This might sound silly, but why not try uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player? Something like this happened to me and I went nuts but I went through the home page and tried a few things and was finally able to get sound.

Or even try doing a syste restore to a date when it was working. That might help.
