Start with the device manager. Are there any red or yellow marks next to sound? If there are, download & install the driver.

Nope..no marks next to the sound..can't believe it..even the blocks on the Sounds and Audio Devices are now black,meaning i can't tick them...

Go back into sounds in the control panel. Check each tab to make sure that nothing is muted.

What kind of speakers do you have? Do they connect directly to the sound card (lime green jack)? Make sure that the jack is all the way in. I connect mine to my home stereo through the same jack. You can try that to test it or use headphones from a walkman.

I've tested the hardaware nothing is wrong...I don't have speakers, the sound comes directly from the screen cause it has speaker inside it..i think that all is happening cause i deleted the SoundMAX file and now i can't restore it...how can i continue???

You can try to install the soundmax driver.

You can try a restore point to last week, when all was well.

I downloaded the driver but on the installation at a point it stops and it says "Severe: Driver not found! Reboot your system, and run this setup again"...
So i guess i have to try what you told me with the restore point..ehm how can i make this restore??? cause really i don't know...

Make sure you ask the salesman if it has a CD in it. Otherwise, buy a different brand. Don't let them tell you that you download the driver from the net.
