Hello, I accidently turned off all sounds for my computer. Now I can not find where I turned them off. I remember seeing "are you sure you want to turn off all sound? I selected yes, the noise of the modem dialing up was upsetting my autistic son. It worked perfectly, but now my media player, etc. will not work. How can I turn all sounds of the computer back on? Help

1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, Download & install the latest device drivers for your audio chip/sound card.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.


These also will solve your problem!
