No Sound

Im am having trouble with sound either it: runs on the laptop speakers when i dont want it to, only runs on headphones, doesnt run at all and i wont run on more than one program at the same time ( i guess i need to stop messing with stuff before i take computer engineering I )i mean i can hear the system sounds (mouse clicks etc) but like videos, i tunes... i have no audio. If there is anyway to just reset to default audio settings that would be great to know.

please advise... thnx

Have you already gone through the settings in the Control Panel under "Hardware & Sound?" You didn't tell us whether or not your using onboard sound, or a PCI card either. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to troubleshoot.

On board system, my main panel is IDT HDsound, havent added anyhting to it ... ive kindof refrained from messing in any of the control panel so i dont screw anything else up (and im a novice here so...)

You can still go into the control panel and look for something obvious. If you make any changes, just write them down. Do you have the latest device drivers for your sound hardware? That would be the first place to start.

Possibly, if there's a driver update available through Microsoft. Check the manufactorer website first.

Okay, then go into Device Manager and lookup "Sound, Video, and Game controlers" to see what website you need to visit for an update check on your sound chipset drivers.

im fairly certain that this isnt a driver issue but a i screwed some settings up issue, it all started when i downloaded a soundmixing program for my band called "audacity" my school uses it so i got it safe, but i couldnt get the microphone stuff to work right (turned out to be a damaged cord)so i messed around to see if i could get it to work, and then i got a whole bunch of issues
