    Hi Bustamove, What is the audio interface you are using? Try going to Preferences > Sound and changing your sound out selection. Try disconnecting & reconnecting your audio interface (if it's an external one that is...) Does that help? Cheers Rounik

    So, you're using the internal soundcard (built-in speakers) only... Have you tried logging out and back in to your user account? Can you hear sound from any other application? If not, try this: 1. open iTunes 2. put headphones in your headphone jack 3. play a song 4. open system preferences > sound 5. check the output. If it says "headphone" take out your headphones. 6. It should revert back to built-in output. Does that do the trick? If not please let us know what version of iTunes you are using etc. cheers Rounik

    I cant hear sound at all. nothing is coming out. this is what my sound window on preferences looks like.

    OK. 1. Have you installed any software or updates recently? 2. Have you been using an external audio interface? 3. What mac are you using? Please give as much info as you can. 4. Can you try restarting your mac? Any joy? if not try: 5. Close all apps & go to : Applications/Utility/Disk Utility Select your Mac HD and click "repair permissions". After it's finished, restart your mac again and check the sound. Cheers Rounik

    Hi, One more thing you can do is to create / log into a new user account. Also, do you get any info in your System Profiler under Hardware / Audio ? Christian

    Please read this thread on the Apple discussion board : [url]http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1391187&tstart=8[/url] ... and run Software Update. Christian

    nope. there's nothing in my system profiler it just says "no built in audio" p.s. apple discussions are down atm. i'm doing a disc reboot. apparently it will work. i'm gonna need to find Leopard again though.

    According to the Apple discussion forum, you are not alone in this situation. It seemed that doing a software update has solved the issue for some users. You could also try reinstalling the latest Quicktime and Mac OS X combo update. [url]http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/macosx_updates/macosx1054comboupdate.html[/url]
