Do you have the driver cd with you? if so use it to reinstall the audio driver. You can go to the site of the particular vendor and download the audio driver that suits your lappy.

Also if you are using windows xp or vista as your operating system go to the automatic updates site, you may find a upgrade for your lappy's audio driver!!

dont forget to vote mate!!!

The volume in control pannel is disabled

Go to your system devices on your control panel and enable the sound board. When you click properties, it will show you that it is disable. Just "enable" it there.

No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed?etc etc,

No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)'s quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
Copy the above address in the browser, replace + with dots....visit my support page.

all the best...

Ok i plugged it in and i can hear them but they cant hear me

I think you are having an issue with your microphone from what I read on your question. This is usually rectified by going into your sound mixer. Follow the following steps:
1. Double click the speaker icon next to the time on your taskbar.
2. The mixer panel opens, click OPTIONS then Properties.
3. On the properties dialog box click the RECORDING button and make sure that you have a tick in the box beside microphone.
4. Click Ok.
5. The mixer panel reverts to the recording mixer. Look for the microphone Slider and make sure that the SELECT checkbox below it is selected and adjust volume and test. If its still low and you have it turned up all the way you can activate a boost by clicking OPTIONS > ADVANCED. An advanced button will apear below your Microphone volume control slider, click it and activate the 20db boost and re adjust your microphone volume.

Lastly ensure that you have the microphone plugged into the right hole, it’s usually colour coded a pinky/redish colour.

4 Answers emachines d725's microphone isn't please!

After downloading every possible driver and tweaking every possible adjustment I have come to this conclusion: There is NO built-in microphone on the eMachines D725! Oh, the Device Manager will show it, all right but I assure you, there is no built-in device that can pick up sound on that laptop model. You'd think that a laptop, albeit a budget on, with a built-in webcam should also have an accompanying built-in mic for messaging and calls, but it doesn't. The mic may have fallen by the wayside during the cost-cutting sessions, along with the 3rd and 4th USB ports. Your only options are to connect an external microphone or to trade the D725 for a real laptop.

Ii have a message ' no active mixer device'

If a reboot does not fix this error, you may have faulty, incomplete driver information, windows is known for this at times.

uninstall your sound drivers from the hardware console, then reboot the PC and re-install them.

to get to the hardware console:

right-click on " my computer " > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > sound, video and game controllers

Vista / Windows 7
start > right-click on " my computer " > Properties > " Device manager > sound, video and game controllers

No sound or mixer devices

a. your sound device may be built right in to your motherboard (make sure it's enabled in your bios)
b. you probably don't have installed any drivers for your sound device- install drivers by going into the motherboard manufacturer or your computer manufacturer.. post details and will help you look for them
