What do I do when I have no sound in my classroom?
Since each audiovisual system was installed at different times, technology in each room may vary. Please examine the equipment in the room.
CHECK THE COMPUTER VOLUME
Computer volume can be controlled by clicking the speaker icon located in lower right of your screen in the Windows Taskbar.
CHECK THE VOLUME OF THE MEDIA PLAYER
Most media players have separate volumes controls. Locate this and ensure the volume is turned up.
CLASSROOMS WITH CONTROL BOXES ATTACHED TO DESKS (Founders Hall)

- Volume is turned up. The Volume knob is located on the back of the speaker.
