Question about E-Machines eMonster 600 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I dont have any sound coming out of my speakers.

I recently had to format and restore my computer because it would not boot up all the way.
Once i had it all set up I noticed that there was not a volume icon in my tray.
I went to the Control panel > Sounds and Multimedia > Audio tab.
everything was grayed out and it said "No plaback device" under sound play back.
I dont know much about computers, but it looks like the headphone and mic jack are attached to the same component as the place where you plug your mouse, keyboard, printer, etc. is this a sound card?

How can I fix my sound?

Here is a link to where you can find the drivers.It is a free page but you have to register in order to download the driver.
http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=122161

The speakers plug into the light green jack in the back of the computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

It means that the driver for your sound card is not yet installed. Right click on MyComputer icon then select properties. Click on Hardware then click on Device Manager. Under Sound and Audio Device, look for anything that has a yellow question mark. Right click on it then select Update driver or Install driver. Get the driver CD that came with your computer and install your sound card.

Hope it fix your problem.

Tip

What to do when no audio/sound after computer reformat


Normally, when you buy a computer, whether desk top or lap top, there's an installation disk that accompanies the unit. This is a moterboard installaer. all the drivers needed by the motherboard is in this disk, but most of the time, the retailers will not give this to you unless you ask for it. This is needed to ensure that the right drivers installed will be compatible with your motherboard, especially during formatting or re-formatting prcess. So if you have recently formatted your computer and there's no sound you can just install the motherboard drivers from the installer then presto, all your needed drivers are installed. But if you don't have the installation disk or mis placed it already, then use the following tips to troubleshoot your audio problems. I hope this will help.
Tip #1. Before formatting your computer, whether a desk top or a lap top, make sure to back up your drivers using programs such as "driver genius", "driver checker" or "driver magician" . These programs can be downloaded freely from their respective sites as "Trial Versions". Download and install any of these programs. Any way, although it's only a trial version, you can use all the function of the program, especially the 'back up driver' function. Make sure to back up your drivers to a location not to the disk/drive that you are going to reformat, otherwise it will be erased during formatting. Use a removable disk/drive or USB to back up your drivers. You can now reformat your computer. After reformat, try to check if there is a sound coming out from your speakers. If no sound is coming out then there must be a problem with the audio drivers. To make sure what is causing the problem, try the following troubleshooting guides ; 1) Click 'start', then 'control panel', double click 'sounds and audio devices', if it says that there is no audio device present, then the problem is on the multi-media device driver. 2) If there is a mult- media device present( ex.AC 97), then the problem is on the audio driver.Whichever the case maybe, double click the 'system' from 'control panel' then click the 'hardware' then 'device manager'. From the device manager, click on the sound, video and game controllers. Right click on the audio device( ex. realtek audio), then click update driver. The hardware & update wizzard will appear, click on 'install from a specified location', click 'next', then specify the folder where you stored your back up drivers, specifically your audio device driver, click 'ok' then the old audio driver will be re installed. Try playing a sound from your computer after reboot.
Tip #2. If after trying the first option and still no sound is produced, try to re install your old drivers using the program you used to back up your drivers by using the 'restore driver' option. make sure to specify the location of your back up driver when prompted. After re installing re boot then play a sound.
Tip #3. If upon restoring the back up drivers, still no sound is produced, go to the windows update using internet explorer browser. After checking your system for critical updates, a run down of updates will be posted, check if there's an update for your audio device driver, select he update then click '
ok'. Re boot your system then play asound.
Tip #4. Before doing all the other tips make sure to check if your connections are in tack, sometimes the problem is only a loose connection of the speaker jacks, or for lap top make sure that your speakers are not in a mute mode or off position.

Mi notebook acer aspire 3000LCi the only do is a an upper and i dont have a recovery disk


When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.


To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer

(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.


Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.


Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.


If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.


Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.

Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.


Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.

Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.


Restart your computer to complete the restore.


3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.


Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.

When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.


This will bring up the system restore menu.

Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings


hope this helps

My computer can not detect the speaker after I format my computer.I check the connection and everything, just I can not recover the driver. what is wrong ?


Unless you have used a recovery disc set or recovery partition on your hard drive to restore the original factory software image, you'll need to download and install the sound drivers for your computer. Most computers have integrated sound, and Windows almost always needs those drivers installed separately. You should be able to download the drivers from the computer manufacturer's website if you have a name-brand machine, or from the motherboard manufacturer's site. Once you install the proper drivers your sound should be working again.

My New sound card did work, but i had to Format my comp.


CAREFULLY remove your sound card and then try to boot up.

if it does not boot up then your computer has a problem and you need to consult your MFG.

if it does boot up then check the specks on the sound card and check if it is compatable.

if it is compatable, make shure that the contacts are clean (use a compressed air cleaner), and that the sound card is not damaged, then reconect (with the computer off).


______________________________________________________
In the way of only one speaker working, you probably have a loose connection; bad cable; or a bad speaker.

My Gateway computer will not boot up. I


If you have tried to restore from the restore disks, do you know if it formatted the hard drive yet or not?

Once the format begins and you find that there is an error on the discs (can't read or whatever) then the next step is to either do a clean format or order a new set of discs from the mfg and restore from those.

They are not terribly expensive, but you will have all the drivers already on the restore as opposed to a clean install.

Good luck

HP had slow problem


Your restoration CD should be doing the full format for you. If not, and your operating system CD is the actual Windows CD (with the logo etc), then you can use that instead. Simply put the CD in and have the system boot with that. Once the CD loads, it will ask you whether you want to install Windows, or repair the current installation - ask it to install (NOT repair), then follow the on-screen prompts.
