Sound Won't Work on Dell Computer

The sound on my Dell computer won't work on both the speakers and headphones. (It was working until about a week ago.) We've tried uninstalling and reinstalling soundblaster. We also tried moving the soundcard to different slots. Nothing helped. If we go into the sound options under control panel, we are unable to select or change anything. It shows no devices. Any suggestions?

Go to Control Panel and go to sound and audio devices. It should have the name of the speakers you are using. If it doesnt then the speakers might not work on that PC. Get a new set of speakers, and try again. It should work on the new ones. If it doesnt, get it checked at PC World or a PC repair store to get it checked, as the problem will be internal in the PC. Hope it works.

Compaq presario. speakers wont work but headphones will


Apparently the built-in speakers have one bad. You can have the speakers replaced for you at a good computer repair shop if you cannot affort to send it in at this time.

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

No sound on monitor speakers


You have installed a new sound card however you won't be able to use the monitor speakers unless there is a seperate cable that you can plug into the headphone jack. Or you can get some speakers and plug them into the headphone jack.

No sound upon installing E-MU 0404 pci card and driver


Hey ya'll.
I had the same problem with everything installed,icons on the screen etc...I took my stuff to my computer wizard and he came with the following solution which is:
Make sure that you have a Windows XP "SP2 or GREATER" this is the kicker.Go to the requirements sheet if you need more info.
Anyway I did that upgrade from SP1 to SP2 and it works like a charm with pristine sound.
Good luck fellows.

No sound


Double click the volume control icon in the task bar and make sure everything is on and unmuted. If they are, it could be that the headphones are broken. Try another pair. Then restart the computer if it still isn't working. This is the easiest fix for a lot of problems. If that doesn't work, you can also try going into Device Manager and checking each of your sound devices to make sure they are working properly. They may tell you what the problem is if there's something wrong with any of them. Also, play around with your computer and find out as much about the problem as you can for me. And if all else fails, Google it and see if anyone else is having the same problem. Hope this helps!
