    What's the model number of the computer? It sounds like either the soundcard failed (might be onboard) or your driver is corrupted or something.



    Just tell me your model number and i'll help you troubleshoot.

You'll want to check your Device Manager to verify that it sees a sound card installed. This can be done by right clicking the "My Computer" icon, and selecting manage. Now on the left side, click device manager. Scroll down on the right side to the sound entries. Verify that none of the icons have a yellow exclamation mark next to them. If they do, then windows is having trouble finding drivers or possibly having troubles with another card conflicting with it. If this is the case, then you can go to hp.com (I know you have a compaq, but HP is compaq now), and click search for drivers. Input your computer model number, and locate the audio drivers. Then just reinstall them.

Let me know if I can clarify this any more,

Steven

My pc says no audio output device installed,but in device manager it says its working properly and the drivers are up to date


Well it is possible that the audio driver installed is not the one compatible with you computer board. Try downloading the specific driver needed for your computer's official website. This should solve your problem.

Audio volume keeps changing by itself


No, the headphone output is designed for 2 speaker output. Just recently I had a customer who had no sound coming from the desktop speakers yet the headphones worked just fine.
I believe that your model has a sound circuit integrated into the motherboard. It may have a “plastic cap” covering the audio ports (next to the USB ports). If you remove the sound card and enable the integrated audio in the BIOS, you can check to see if the sound card is actually the problem.

I have Altec Lansing Speakers. They were working fine Saturday. I just tried to use them for class and now I am not geting any sound. I checked all the wires and they are all plugged in. I am getting no...


There are many models of Altec speakers, which do you have?

Most computer speakers include built-in amplifiers, volume and
tone controls, remote, audio processing, cross over networks...
etc.

These are sophisticated electronics devices, not the passive
speaker boxes of the 1970's

If any of the internal electronics, or even the internal power supply are fried, they will not work.

But don't miss the obvious:

1) Double check not only the cables, but also the audio-card
software settings.

Most new audio cards have programmable inputs and outputs,
some automatically detect what is connected to them.

Make sure that the settings are correct.

2) Make sure that the Audio card is not set for digital output
with analog speakers or vice versa.

3) Check the Windows mixer/volume control, or the mixer applet
that came with your audio card (or motherboard) to make
sure that the audio output is not MUTED or attenuated
anywhere in the audio path.

4) Make sure the Windows Vista DRM is not getting in the way.
(try non-protected audio files)

5) Finally try your speakers on another computer.

6) If the speakers are analog, connect them to the "LINE-OUT"
output of your home stereo to confirm if they are defective.

(This may require an RCA plug to miniature stereo adapter)

7) If the speakers are determined to be dead, phone ALTEC
tech support, insist on speaking to an engineering manager,
complain and make your self sound very important...

They may send you a free replacement.


I have found the ALTEC staff to be exceptionally helpful and
professional. On one occasion, they have acknowledged an
inherent design problem with a particular speaker model,
and sent me a more expensive replacement under warranty.

There are very few companies as GOOD as ALTEC, when it
comes to customer service.
