    No Sound, Driver is there.

    I'm not sure what had happened.  After a format an reinstall a while back everything was okay.  When I tried to watch a clip I noticed there wasnt any audio at all.  I checked an got the most recent driver ofr it off the site.  Its a dell demension 4100 win 2000 + sp 4
    Windows 7 RC Tester.  Working on it.  Your monitor says etchasketch on the side!

    If I fall who is there to pick me up now.  I stand alone but I stand as the gaurdian for whom I wish to protect.  The sound of my blade utters my name as you fall.  For I shall not move.  For those that forsake the very people are wosres

    also, don't forget to check that you got the speakers in the right jack.

      Install ALL drivers that apply for your computer.

      Exactly, a chipset driver that you don't think applies may apply.

      Also make sure that the Windows Audio service is enabled.

        Never said that, I dont know if there is or not.  Not sure if it is, I do know that the speaker didnt show in the task bar tray an had to tell it to be there.  Its all right but still nothing.

          I'm not going to do a reformatt when the machine has been working well for almost six mths.  Its just one driver that I had put in the other day but still nothing.

          No one is asking you to reformat...
          They are however asking that you re-install ALL your drivers.

            My ONLY advice and my last post in this topic: You had reformatted - so you must reinstall all your drivers.

            Good Luck.

              I don't understand why you consistently ask for advice and then ignore it or refuse to even try it...
