    click Start-settings - controll panel - double click on "system" when it opens select the hardware tab at the top, then select "device manager". look the for your sound card. If there is a yellow ! or? next to your sound device or any device for that matter, it has no driver installed or a bad or corrupt one

    is functional correctly.

    please post what you find and i will help you further.

You need to reload the sound drivers, its not the speakers, but lets check just to be sure.
check the power adaptor going to the wall outlet and speakers (are the speaker powered and light on when you turn them on and are they connected to the computer, ime sure you've checked this already.
now lets see what your computer says: this is for windows XP, let me know if your running another operating system.
follow me---
1. click START
2. click SETTINGS
3. click CONTROLL PANEL
4.double click on SYSTEM
5. click the HARDWARE tab at the top
6. click the DEVICE MANAGER button
this will show you a list of all the hardware in your computer and the if one of these listings has a yellow exclamation point or question mark next to it, it is not working properly.
what you are looking for specifically is one called "sound , video and game controllers" OR a sound card that is listed under unknown device. this shows that the wrong driver is present or has been installed incorrectly.
post your findings here and your model of video card from the settings section you were just in. if you have a box the video card came with , give me the info from it.

I have emachines el1360-ur30p running windows 7 and doesn't recognize cd/dvd


Hello,

Was it working fine before? If it does, then you would need to update the driver for your DVD.. Or you might have an outdated DVD driver. You can use RadarSync to update it.

My emachines el1360 doesn't recognize cd/dvd


Try going to safe mode. Restart your computer and tap f8. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode, and once you are inside safe mode. Try running the dvd or insert the sd card. If it runs well, then install RadarSync or any automatic PC updater then update the drivers. You can also manually update them by going to the website of your computer's manufacturer. Look for support and download.

Emachine doesn't recognize the ethernet cord when plugged in


Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

Cant get sound


Hello,

This can often be as simple as the speakers being unplugged, plugged into the wrong jacks, or powered off, so don't overlook the obvious and check to be sure. Also check the volume controls in Windows or your application to see that they are turned up and not muted. When you are sure the volume is turned up, the speakers have power and are plugged in, and the speaker configuration is correctly identified in Windows (some audio hardware uses a proprietary mixer control for this job), you need to verify whether the problem is with the speakers or the sound card. Connect different known-good speakers and see whether they work. If they don't, the issue is in the sound card-possibly the configuration of the card is incorrect or the card itself is defective. The first thing to try is clearing the ESCD in the BIOS Setup. This essentially forces the plug-and-play routines to reconfigure the system, which can resolve any conflicts. If this doesn't help, try removing and reinstalling the sound card drivers. Finally, if that doesn't help, physically remove and replace the card from the system. You might try replacing it first in the same slot and then in a different slot because timing issues can sometimes exist from one slot to the next. If that doesn't work, you must try replacing the card. If the sound "card" really isn't a card but is integrated into the motherboard, first try the ESCD reset and driver re installation. Then, if that doesn't work, you have to try disabling the integrated sound and perhaps installing a replacement card.

I hope one of these solutions help.

No audio from PC


Hi,

You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with the motherboard of the computer.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

The DVD writer doesn't recognize that there is a


Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

Not recognizing the speakers.


Operating systems don't auto detect speakers. You have to go into the sound setup in Control Panel and you can tell the computer if you have headphones, surround sound, 2 speaker, 4 speaker setup or whatever. If your sound just isn't working then you need to go into or sound card setup and probably tell it what you have plugged into each jack or let it auto detect your speakers.

I have no sound think I have my speakers plugged in wrongly


Hi
a few suggestons.
1. turn on the speakers, be sure that they have power and that the light is on, turn up the sound volume and touch the tip of the plug with your finger (there is no power in it, won't hurt you) you should hear a buzz or souncd, indicating that the speakers are working.
2. this plug goes into the speaker jack on the back of the computer, usually a green colored jack (hole).
3. you can see if Windows recognizes this by going to control panel/system/hardware/device manager, and look under the listing for "sound". there should be no icons with a yellow ! (which would indicate that the sound drivers are not installed).

Hope this helps.

Good luck

IBM M51 ThinkCentre doesn t recognize 4gig installed memory


You can confirm this in the BIOS and i'm sure it will show 4GIG. Your Operating system maybe a 32 BIT OS, hence it will only show about 3... GIG. It's a limitation for a 32 BIT OS.
