try right clicking on your volume icon the speaker in your tray the select playback devices and see if its selected or listed if its there and no got a check mark check it and you should be good ..if it isn't there try updating if still no go then the sound card simply wont work for windows
don't forget to give testimonial and the votes 4 thumbs up if I helped.
The optiplex 360 does come with internal speakers(it's in the spec sheet as optional), we bought them for our entire IT department and they worked fine on XP and vista, but when we put 7 on them, we can't get the internal speaker to work.
Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards
With your indulgence, pls verify that it is indeed the built-in speakers of the Norcent that is the issue. Temporarily plug in to the computer a pair of headphones or even an old external computer speakers. If sound, then the monitor speakers are verified, if likewise static, then it is a computer issue.
Let's try the easy one's first:
check/replace the cable;
try other ports to plug it in at the computer;
determine if the sound device/driver for Norcent shows up in your Device Manager;
determine if on Sound Property in COntrol Panel, the Norcent is selected as the default device;
you may want to update the firmware and driver available here.
Would appreciate a postback for any updates on any development(s) (or even the lack of any). Pls include what Operating System you are running and if the Norcent is using USB connectors or standard cables. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.
I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.
If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.
Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.
Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.
If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.
