I jumped to the conclusion that I needed some new speakers and off to OfficeMax I went. When we got back from Abby's visit to the nursing home, I hooked up the new speakers and guess what--STILL no sound! Hmpf. I went into settings, and saw the "mute" box was checked. How in the world did that happen? I know I didn't change it and the only other person who uses our home PC is my husband who wouldn't have a clue how to even get to that screen. I know our pets are smart and sneaky sometimes, but I really don't think any of them could have done this.
|Don't blame this on me, I didn't do it!|
I have no idea how that setting mysteriously got changed. So anyhow, I unchecked the mute box and tried again.
Sure enough, I had sound once again. I hooked my old speakers back up and they work just fine. Yesterday after work, I returned the new speakers to OfficeMax and they gave me a credit without any problem.
1. Do not jump to conclusions. Check out all the possibilities first even though it seems improbable.
Can anyone explain this mystery to me?
