From your control panel then system and hardware tab, can you confirm if you have a question mark next to the sound. if it looks like what i have for my usb device(in the pic attached) then you need a driver for your sound device. youll need to find out if its on board sound or a soundcard to get the part number

Canot get sound no matter what i try


1 .
Check that your volume on your computer is not muted. Take a look at the task bar. Locate the icon that looks like a speaker. Click on it. If the mute button is pressed, click it to un-mute your computer. If your mute button is not pressed, make sure the speakers are turned up. If they are turned up and you still hear no sound, move on to Step 2.

2.
Open Device Manager on your computer. Click "Start" or the Windows icon, then click "Control Panel." On the Control Panel menu, select "System and Maintenance" and then click "Device Manager." Provide confirmation if prompted. Click on the "Sound, video, and game controllers" category in order to expand it. Look to see if a sound card is listed. If not, you will need to install a sound card.

3
Look for a exclamation mark next to the name of your sound card. If there is a yellow question mark, right-click the sound card and click "Properties." Make sure the general tab is selected, and check the status of the device (in the Device status box). Go through the required steps to repair the sound card. If you do have a sound card installed and there are no errors, but you still have no audio, see Step 4.

4
Check to make sure your speakers are plugged into the correct jack. If you have a Usb device, it should plug into any Usb port, but if you have a 1/8 inch cable, there is a specified jack for it on the back of the computer.

5
Make sure that your sound card is compatible with your operating system.

Thanks.

I cannot get my speaker to work on my dell dimension 4700. Speakers will work on other computer. Just had the hardrive switched on computer but they said that the speakers were working there. I have tried...


Hi,
The speaker jack is coloured green on newer computers and usually sits alongside a blue and a pink jack. Firstly, make sure your speakers are plugged into the green socket. If this doesn't solve the problem, you need to check in "device manager to make sure your sound card is installed correctly. Make sure the sound card is listed in "device manager" then make sure there is no yellow dot next to your sound card. If there is a yellow dot next to your device, it's a simple matter of downloading the correct driver for the sound card. If you need further assistance regarding this don't hesitate to ask me.
Best wishes,
Graemevm
