You can check if the connector is properly seated on the slot for the audio on your computer, you can also try to move and check the cables it could also be an audio cable problem.

New monitor now sound won't work. i probably hooked it up wrong


Some monitors come with speakers if your new one didn't then you would have to use external speakers and hook it up to your audio jack which is green and located on the back of your computer.

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

I need to hook speakers up to my Dell B110 computer.


2 things are needed to get sound from your speakers:

1-wiring connecting your speakers to a socket to the back of the computer. (The spot they need to plug in to ON YOUR COMPUTER is a small light green circular socket. The other end of the plug you plug in here should run to one of your speakers *usually the right side speaker-the right speaker should then have separate wiring to connect the left speaker.)

2- A source of power.
Some speakers use their own power source and plug in to a power outlet - your wall. Other types have a USB type plug and plug into a USB port in your computer and that is how THOSE get their power.

Those are the basics of sound setup. Some computers are equipped with more complicated setups such as surround sound, subwoofers, digital and more. Reply if you need more help, I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps.

I have a pavillion model # 4535, and i dont know how or what i need to hook my speakers up. i tryed connecting them but all i get is static. please help new to a computer, 1st timer LOL


Make sure the speakers you are using are powered, which means they have to plug into a power outlet as well as the computer.

On the computer itself, the port will be colored green or a light or lime green.

If you are getting static, sounds like they are just plugged into the wrong port!

If all is proper, then the speaker could be bad.

Hope that helps!

Tin like sound from small speakers only. No sound


switch on your speaker set in full volume unplug it from computer touch the plug , as you touch you can hear a sound ( loud hum sound) if the speaker is working. If okay then check the right jack, plug it into green color jack. you can try if your computer is okay use a headphone plug it into the jack in PC , if the computer is okay you may hear the sound.

Connected pc to logik 32in lcd tv, getting picture but no sound


Need clarification. Do you have speakers hooked up to your computer? Or did you just plug in a VGA cable from your computer to the TV? The sound can't magically go from your computer to the TV, because VGA cables don't transmit sound. So if you are indeed using speakers, which I doubt, it's a computer problem.
Basically, describe exactly what components you have and how they are hooked up.

Click control panel and when the wizard displays, scroll down for a sound settings. Set up and click sound folder and audio folder. Try every possibilities e.g. set audio to Intel (r) .... then click advance to set up volumes either you are using a desktop speaker or a speaker connected to USB port.
