I am fairly new to Audacity, although I have had it installed on my computer, which is running Windows XP home, for some time. In the past it has worked perfectly, with no problems. Not having used it for some time, I recently opened it up but discovered that there was no sound playing through my speakers, which, in other respects work perfectly well with other programs. Audacity seems to be operating as it should ecxept for there being no sound. I uninstalled my original Audacity and re-installed 1.2.6 thinking that this would cure the problem. It didn't provide a cure, as I still get nothing through the speakers. I have an on-board sound card, for which there are no up-to-date drivers on the compaq website. I also have Lame installed, since I installed the original Audacity software. I would appreciate any suggestions which may help restore the sound through Audacity.
