At times, while working on your Windows 7 computer, you might encounter problems related to the audio that can leave you quite frustrated. To fix these issues, you need to find out what is causing the problem in the first place. To help you with the same, I am mentioning a few troubleshooting measures provided by the Microsoft chat support team, which you may adopt to resolve audio problems in Windows 7.
Check the volume level
Sometimes, there may be nothing wrong with the audio device. The reason why you are hearing anything may be because of the system volume level; it might be too low. To change this, click on the Windows “Start” button, click on “Control Panel” from the start menu, select the icon titled “Hardware and sound”, and click on “Adjust System Volume”. Make sure that the muting option is not enabled. If the button labeled “Mute” is having a red mark on it, you need to click on it to switch it off. After that, increase the volume slider to your desired level.
Make sure the cables are connected properly
Make sure that all the cables of the speakers are plugged in properly and switched on. Also, check whether the speakers are connected to the lineout jack of your computer. The lineout jack usually comes in green color. Close any application that makes use of the audio feature and disconnect the audio device. Now plug the audio device back in place and restart the application.
Verify the sound card of your computer
Those were some of the troubleshooting measures you may adopt to deal with audio-related problems with your Windows 7 computer. Contact Microsoft chat support team for further clarification.
