CD Program Disk Have No Sound
Posted on 2000-04-17
I am a seventy-five-year-old geezer who has just purchased his first computer --
and that is a dangerous combination. I
know my trouble is caused by something I have done, but now I can't discover how to "un-do" the problem.
They told me that a good way to learn was when in doubt push the button and see what happens.
Now, when I place a regular music disk into my CD drive it works fine. But when I put in a program disk -- such as a sound dictionary, an encyclopedia, or a demo disk -- I get not sound at all.
Can you help with this?
Also, when pushing buttons, I recall pushing one that said if would enlarge the screen to the maximum (I'm not talking about the middle square in the three button at the upper-right of the windows screen.) This has now enlarged the copy to the point where I have to use the horizontal scroll bar to read from the left margin to the right margin in text copy.
I know this sounds very mundane to you experts who talk in a language that is as foreign as any national language to me, but to me it is a problem to which I can't find the answers.
Please -- and thanks in advance.
PS -- I have no knowledge on how to rate this question. So help me.\
