So I opened up 'Sounds and Devices' and it's telling me:- 'No Audio Device'!!!!
Any clues as to what's happened and how to fix it????

I've got an on-board Soundcard attached to a slot on the Motherboard.

I can't really be any more technical than that as PC's aren't my area of expertise!!

Maybe the soundcard just got out of the socket? Have you tried refitting it? smile.gif

Is it one of those HD cards which are not built in into the motherboard? I've got one and sometimes, when I push on the headphone wire, it partially loses contact with motherboard socket. This might be your case. smile.gif

Go into control panel->system->hardware->device manager.

There are many ways to navigate to device manager, but XP, Vista, and Win 7 all have a slightly different way of getting there, but once you find device manager, you can check the status of your sound card drivers.

From within Device Manager, look at the "Sound, Video , and Game Controllers" section. Your sound card should be listed. Right click on it and select properties. You can check the status there as well as do some automated trobuleshooting. You can even update the drivers if you know that an update is available for your particular sound card.

Sometimes it's a lot more simple than that, like turning on your speakers, or plugging them back in, so before you get to deep into troubleshooting the software and or computer, do a sanity check to make sure all is well with everything else.

I hope this helps.

Yeah, I took it out and cleaned the contacts and refitted it, still nothing! Then refitted all the other connections, speakers etc....

I did the 'Turn off/back on, disconnect and reconnect everything' Dance first off!!! I've learned to do that first of all before trying anything else!!! biggrin.gif
According to the Device Manager everything should be working fine! Seriously, I just think it's the age of this PC. It's 10 years old now! My Bro is just finished building me a new one and I'm just waiting for him to have time to come and install it!!
Thanks for the advice James!

You can try "restore system" under Accesories - system tools (on xp)

you don't lose any files or anything

Had that happen to me once, can't recall if it was the graphics- or sound card that popped out of its slot.
Try pressing it into place.

EDIT: See now you tried that. Switch to a cheapo external USB soundinterface smile.gif
