I really don't see how this is a hardware issue. If Winamp played one song, and you heard it without any massive buzzing or squealing then your hardware is most likely functioning correctly.


This is more of a software issue. In the future however, making the post easier to read and understand would be your first step to an answer.

Proper English (as best as you can, we are quite tolerant of people whom english is not a first language), leaving out the "l33t Speak" or any net-based shortcuts. You don't need to be an English Phd with a masters in technical writing, but sometimes asking the question the right way can yield the most simple answer.

Until a moderator moves this to the Software forums, check to make sure that your sound card volume levels are not too low or muted. Also check to see if you have any device driver conflicts.

Futhermore, newer soundcards will NOT work with un-powered speakers. You will need amplified speakers or stereo headphones (from the headphone jack). Older soundcards used to put amplified sound to the audio-out jacks, but due to PCI power restrictions, the only amplified jack is the headphone (which is only slightly amplified anyway).

If you have amplified speakers make sure they are plugged in and are turned on and the volume is at an audible level. Check the signal cables from the sound card (or onboard sound) to the speakers are connected well and the wires are not damaged/worn.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for everything, and all of your windows updates have been installed.

If all of that is OK, then we can go to the next step to figure out whats wrong.

Try to Uninstall the Sound card driver, and Install a new one of your sound card, if the problem is the same, try to verify you Codecs, probably you installed a bad codec and it will no works good!

Good Luck !

Possible CODEC problem, trying to play unsupported file formats ....

Are you being provided with an error message or you just can't hear the music but it appears to be playing etc ?

Translation: Hello fellow Ozzu patrons. The sound on my computer seems to be malfunctioning. I have already assured that all cables are firmly plugged into the proper slots and that all settings and volume levels are at appropriate levels. However, it seems that my computer does not register that a sound device has been installed. I am really at a loss. May I please have some assistance? Thank you.

Solution:
First: You might want to check “Device Manager” for any pieces of hardware that show up as unknown or have an exclamation point next to them. If device manager shows no problematic hardware then you must follow one of these two steps:

1.) If you have onboard sound, access your bios to ensure that all applicable devices for sound have been enabled, then reboot. Windows should now detect your sound device and ask you for drivers. At that point install your drivers, reboot, and then Bob’s your uncle.
2.) If you are using an additional PCI or ISA (shudder) sound card, ensure if it requires additional power, it has been supplied power thusly from the power supply. Also check to make sure that the card has been properly seated into the correct slot. If that works to no avail, try moving the card to another slot. Then when Window’s finds the device, install your drivers, and then Bob’s your uncle.
If the motherboard does not have any sound capabilities and you do not have a sound card installed, then please purchase one and install the card and drivers, and then Bob’s your uncle.

If you do have a sound card and none of these solutions work, your hardware is most likely defective. Please replace the hardware, install the drivers and then Bob’s your uncle.

If you have motherboard provided sound and you have enabled it, and it still doesn’t show up, before replacement, try to upgrade the BIOS version. If that still fails, replace the motherboard, or install a sound card, then install the drivers, and then Bob’s your uncle.

Capisce?

I agree with GT500Shlby. you must check your Control Panel-Device Manager and make sure your soundcard there. Re-install your soundcard driver and you can use sisoft sandra to check your hardware problem.

BTW, what is your operating system? and what soundcard do you have?

If your using an ISA card, I suggest you find a cliff and jump off it ... alternativly buy a new sound card.

I agree with Enigmatic. If your computer still has an ISA port, sell it to a museum and newegg a new one.
