so.

what in tarnation could possibly be wrong with my computer NOW?!?

there's no sound.

i had perfect sound when i left phx, but when i hooked up my speakers just now, there is nothing. nada. zip.

and YES, they're plugged in. YES, everything is plugged in where it's sposed to go. and NO, nothing on the computer is muted, and YES, the power button is turned on.

what in the world could have happened between phoenix and here?!?

if you have a sound card it might've slipped out of the slot inside the case. if you're comfortable doing this, open up the case and look at the sound card. see it it's seated firmly in the slot. if it's not just push it in.
if your sound is integrated on the motherboard, then I don't know.

What the first guy said.

Other things to look for:

Check the device manager, it may have gotten disabled or otherwise.

You can also try upgrading the drivers for it.

Hope this helps!

Here's an idea
I'll trade you PC repair and upgrades for moral support!

Heh.

1) Open the volume contrals, make sure that both the 'main volume' and the 'wave' are not muted and are up at least a little bit

2) Make sure that your sound card is shown in the device manager. If you don't know how to do that IM me and I'll walk you thru it.

3) open the case, take a deep sniff. Smell burn electronics?
