"No Sound" again

I have, I think, tried everything I have found about trying to get sound
back on my computer, at least from this newsgroup. Nothing has worked. I
just don't know where else to look to find the answer.

I have gone into: Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > sounds tab;
"Remove the modem from control panel, phone and modem options,restart from
power-off, and then add the modem agan."; I've checked everything in Control
Panel from Sounds, Speech, Audio Devices, Audio Devices. I have gone into
Windows XP, click Start, and then click Control Panel. I've checked Device
Volume (up all the way), have removed checkmarks from Mute on Master Volume,
and adjusted to High for volume.

The cords from the speakers to the computer seem to be connected snugly

I have checked the hardware tab under device manager; there are no ?'s or
yellow or red boxes - no problems. I have updated the sound device driver.
Windows update does not give me any information on updates needed for sound
driver updates.

At one time, I did remove all the sound device names other than audio codecs
and Legacy Audio Drivers, and then click Remove, and let the computer replace
them. That did not work, either.

I know someone knows what is wrong - CERTAINLY not me! If anyone can help,
PLEASE let me know.

Thanks in advance for anyone who has some new avenues I can travel down to
get some sound here.

(Yes, I have tried system restore - it's been several years, now, and I
don't want to loose so much!!!)

Sound cables are properly connected from the speaker to the computer (cable
connectors and plug assignments are normally color-coded to aid with
connections).

The directions I see to deal with the "BIOS" is something I don't quite
understand; maybe you can help me on that if maybe that could be an answer.

Help! Thanks so very much for any suggestions you can give me.

If you used the Sound driver available on Windows Update, that could be the
problem. It's best if you get the latest driver from the Sound Card/Chip
drivers from the manufacture's web site.

Susan,

Check the simple things...

In Sounds and Audio Devices, have you checked the volume sliders? (your OP
says you have, check it again).

Have you tried going into Programs to locate your soundcard controllers and
checked the volume sliders?

Have you tried going into Windows Media and moved the volume slider to
'High'?

Have you tried going into Real Player (if installed) and moved the volume
slider to 'High'?

Have you tried going into QuickTime (if installed) and moved the volume
slider to 'High'?

Have you tried going into any other medial player that you have installed
and moved the volume slider to high?

Every time I have 'lost' my sound, one or other of the above has been the
problem.

If all else has failed, have you tried re-installing the sound drivers from
the CD-ROM that came with the sound card/motherboard?
