Question about HP Compaq dc5700 Microtower - Free Flat Panel until 113007 EW287AV-KIM PC Desktop
Had a PC repaired doesn't recognize my speakers now!
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.
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.
