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.

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.

Try booting into safe mode. press F8 immediatly after the logo screen disapears when you start up your computer. see if you can get in that way. if you are able to get in try using a restore point. sometimes this is caused by software that requires making system changes such as office when it creates the "one note printer option" you can try using "msconfig" from the start>accesories>run then typing msconfig then hit enter. under general tab select " selective start up and uncheck everything but "use original boot configuration. then under boot tab uncheck everything. reboot and see if you can get in. otherwise you are going to have to contact HP. if you have changed or upgraded the video or sound card this might happen as what the factory restore actually does is completly erase, format and copy (not install) a pre-installed windows installation from an image located on a recover partition. if you have infact replaced or upgraded anything ( other than Hard drive this will not cause your problem) remove them and do restore again. then after successful factory reset reinstall one, install drivers, reboot make sure works then install other, rinse and repeat.

How do I restore my Dell inspiron mini 10 computer to factory settings. I have tried ctrl F11 and it does not work. It operates on XP so the F8 isn't working for me either... PLEASE HELP!!!


To restore back to factory settings you have to format hard drive which will erase all information and then install operating system all over. to do this you need original operating system cd that came with the computer. put this in and restart the pc and once it shuts down keep on pressing F12 which will give you boot menu. you will choose cd/dvd rom and make sure to press space bacr or any button right after it when it asks so it will boot in to cd it self. once the cd loads all the files it will ask to repair or press escape to install new windows which is what you need. once in that screen you have to delete the old partition and then do format and then install windows. make sure you read all the prompts just to be sure but this is preatty much universal. Also before you do anything make sure to do back up of all of the data since you will loose all of it after format. now for the first time you choose format it will give you few options. just choose normal and not quick format. quick format is faster but normal will check hard drive for errors and bad sectors which is always good.once everything is installed you will need the drivers cd to be able to install all the drivers line network drivers and video etc.. If you dont have drivers cd and have internet access just go to google.com and click on downloads and support and download all the drivers for your model and put on cd or jump drive.Good luck with this.

Sounds like someone tapered with your computer while you weren't looking lol

You may need to perform a system restore to get control back.

You can restore the system by placing your windows CD in the CDROM drive normaly drive D:

Restart the computer

Go to your BIOS

Make sure the boot sequence is set to

1st Boot Device - CDROM D:
2nd Boot Device - Primary HardDrive C:
3ed Boot Device - Floppy A:

Or CDROM,C,A

then save and exit

restart the computer

you should see ( Windows is now starting your computer )

and the install process will begin.

once windows is installed and you've put your key in

you should go to the windows update site to download ALL critical updates and service packs

Then you'll want to load driver software for your computer,
