I downloaded audacity and now my computer has no sound

I downloaded audacity a few days ago and im just now using it but i couldnt here any sound when i was recording and when i exit audacity and try to listen to music online or in my library no sound comes from my computer at all. Help?

Please read the “README” topic at the top of the “Forum Issues” section.

Go back up to the top of the forum listings and find your version of Audacity and then which computer you have…


…and post there. Most of the helpers never come down here looking for people in trouble.


In the “Sounds and Audio Devices” window, try changing the “Default device” pulldown menu to a different device. Make sure that the device is chosen for both input and output and then try listening, i hope it works.
