Can't Play Sound

Article ID: 1093
Last updated: 31 May, 2008

You've added sounds, but you can't play anything.

There are a few things you can check here.

  • Are the speakers on and plugged in? (Sorry, management made us ask.)
  • Is the correct sound card or sound device selected?  Go to your Preferences followed by clicking Sound Device to change the default ouput (playback) device.
  • Can you play a Wave file through Windows sndrec32.exe or another sound application? If you can't there may be a problem with your sound card's configuration or drivers. Refer to your sound card documentation to try to figure out what is wrong.
  • Load the volume control that came with your sound card and make sure that the Wave device is turned up.
  • Another program may be using the sound card at the same time (May happen with older versions of Windows.)
  • Update or install your sound card's drivers. Check their website for the latest drivers and documentation.
