Re: COMPUTER HAVE NO SOUND
You need to check to make sure your speaker is off mute and confirm you have the right driver for your sound card by going to controle panel and open up sound/then go to sound and highlight a sound scheme then look for a black arrow going to the right...click and listen for sound..if the arrow remains grey then you don't have the right driver.

first of all did you plug your speakers into the green connection in your printer.. are your speakers on and the volume on your speakers turned on ?? I know this sounds stupid check these things first. then go into your control panel and choose sound and make sure the speakers are not on mute and turned up via the computer. sometimes there will be a speaker icon down where the time is on the left side on teh start bar
if you have no sound card that id definitely the problem. If the sound card is bad, that's a problem too. What makes you ask the question of "Do I currently have a sound card"? Sound cards are standard devices on computers sort like a stering wheel comes with a car.
Either you have the speakers plugged into the wrong port in the back of the computer (Normally they go into the light green port) or You have the volume muted, or you have the volume down low or your sound drivers are missing. Oh and make sure you have the speakers turned on and the volume on it turned up.
First check if the driver for your speakers is up to date. For all we know maibe something that was installed automaticaly or by some one might be interfearing with them. Go to the Window menu, click on Conrol Panel, click on speaker settings, and check to see if anything looks off (like everything is gray and you can't really select anything). If everything seems ok check all the volume settings. Remember there are 3 things that control the volume on the speakers. 1: the nob on the speakers; 2: the volume on your desktop (lower right side next to the clock); 3: the volume on the program you are using (like windows media player). Another thing to remember is some computers come with a mute button (ether on the keyboard or monitor. If your computer has a play/skip/stop buttons it most likely has a mute button. Oh, and some computers have a volume nob next to the CD/DVD player (where you put in disks). Maibe some one turned it down as they grabed to move it. Make sure it's also turned up. If they're all turned up then most likely something got bumped loose during the move. In wich case you'll have to open it up and check the conections. It'd be a good idea to test some one elses speakers so you'll know if it's the computer or the speakers...or you could try pluging in the speakers you have into something else (like an MP3 Player).
You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.
If there is a yellow question mark next to
the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the
name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.
Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.
On your speakers, find the cable that plugs
into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the
speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the
cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the
back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it
will plug into any USB port on your computer.
Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.
Open Volume Control by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then, under Audio Devices and Sound, clicking Adjust system volume.
Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.
Some mobile PCs have an external volume
control on the outside of the case. If you're using a mobile PC, check
the external volume control.
Make sure your headphones are not plugged into
the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless
you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you
plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the
If you have an extra headset around, plug it into the same place the speakers are plugged into, if it works, your speakers are bad (or check to make sure the power light is on on them and that their volume knob is turned up).
If you still do not get sound, click on your little volume/speaker icon by your clock, then click 'mixer' at the bottom of it (Windows 7 hopefully?). Make sure the different volume controls are turned up because sometimes one low one will affect the entire system.
(If Windows XP, right-click the speaker, then 'Open Volume Control'. Adjust until you hear sound.)
The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume
control (speaker) icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on
the icon and deselect the Mute option.
• The speakers may be turned off. Press Fn-F8 to turn the speakers
on (this hot key also turns the speakers off).
• The volume level may be too low. In Windows, look at the volume
control icon on the taskbar. Fn-? Volume up Increases the sound volume.
Fn-? Volume down Decreases the sound volume.
check o see if the speakers are working on something else. if so make sure your computers volume is turned up. you can do this by looking to the bottom left hand side of the sreen , you will see a little speaker. double click it and your volume controls will appear.
if you do not see a little speaker then most likely you will need to reinstall your sound drivers.
first right click on the speaker symbol in the lower right startup toolbar and click on the open volume controls tab. make sure nothing is turned down or muted. if all is well there i would suggest trying another set of speakers first and if theres still no sound, buy a sound card and install it along with the drivers cd that comes with it.
Look into your computer audio setup, usually a icon in the lower right. they have controls for volume, some have different areas such as oper sounds, outdorrs, etc. Maybe these are turned down or muted...Also plug a head set into the CD or DVD rom port in the front if yu have and see if the volume is good. Possible bad audio card. Also try different speakers. Small speakers sell for $20.00 or less.
