Go to control panel, sysem, hardware, device manager.
see what autio card is listed. copy the mane and model if you can, then go do a web search.
option2 is find out what make and model is the laptop and go the vendor website and download the drivers.
if that doesn't work, then My guest is the plug for the headset is defective.

Driver


You did not specify the problem here, friend. But I think the problem might be the sound or the input microphone or headset...
If you hear no sound or voice you suspect first the headset or the speaker. Try to use good speaker and or headset to know if there is no problem within those device. If you hear nothing...the problem is the sound card and you need to replace the sound card with new

I have a dell computer that runs windows xp. im not a complete idiot but im not very computer savvy. I was messing around a few weeks ago trying to clean up my system from the previuos owners stuff . i...


Many Dell PCs have an internal speaker that will allow sounds and even music to play - it is just not as good as the external types that offer sub woofers and stereo sound. As long as you're hearing the familiar Windows Sounds and not simple beeps - your sound card drivers are probably ok.

This makes me think that you've either inserted the speaker plug into the wrong jack on the PC or have an issue with the speakers themselves. Generally, these jacks are color coded. If yours are, make sure that speakers are connected to the GREEN jack. If not color coded there should be an indication of an arrow pointing OUT or a speaker icon near the speaker jack. If still no luck, it is possible that the cord between the plug and the speakers has gotten pinched or broken. Try plugging a pair oh head phones into the jack - or plug the speakers into another device with a speaker jack. I'm pretty sure you'll get your answer after doing that. Some final thoughts: Maybe your speakers need power? Are they plugged in? Is the outlet powered? Is there a power indicator? Is the volume knob turned to minimum?

If you still have problems - provide the model number of your Dell PC and we can dig some more - but I think you'll find the problem if you follow the steps above.

I hope this was Very Helpful - and good luck!

From what I can tell your machine uses a Realtek sound device. Download and reinstall this driver to see if it fixes your problem.

Your laptop should have a sound card built into the board. To make sure, check for three round color coded holes anywhere along the edge of your laptop frame and ports. The Sound output is usually green. The sound in is blue and the mic in is red. If you plug in speakers n the green and don't here music, then check to see your SOUND DRIVERS are installed. If they are not no sound will play. The check for Sound drivers, right-click My Computer, then chose HARDWARE and let it list the components. Any one with a yellow mark needs drivers.

Speaker Problem


There is nothing wrong with the speakers.

There is nothing wrong with the sound card.

Your audio software has to support 5.1 playback. If you're using Winamp for instance, you have to figure out how to get it to play music back in 5.1 surround.

Otherwise, your audio player software will only play back in 2.1.

If you want your music to play back in 5.1, you'll most likely have to install a plugin for it.

Although I myself don't recommend that kind of sound because it seems to ruin the sound quality. Remember that the music is not recorded in 5.1. It's recorded in stereo. It wasn't designed to play in a center speaker. Your player software is doing exactly as it is designed to do.

A digital plugin for your audio player software may convert it into a streaming 5.1 signal, though. I'm sure that there are plenty for Winamp and you'll find them on Winamp's website.

Otherwise, you might find audio DVD's where they've remade the albums in 5.1. However, that'd require a DVD player application that is capable of decoding 5.1.

OR... If you have Logitech Z-5500's or other AWESOME speakers like them, you can switch the speakers themselves to use a Dolby ProLogic mode. My Z-5500's have a mode called "Dolby ProLogic II Music" where it does exactly what you're talking about. It converts the 2.1 stream into 5.1. (This is NOT true surround sound, mind you! It is EMULATED. The ONLY time you have TRUE surround sound is when the source itself is done in 5.1 or better.)

Also, you can use the Soundblaster card's EAX effects to produce a similar sound, but you may not like the results. Environmental Audio isn't meant for music.

I'm not sure... I can't recall, but the newer drivers for the Live! 5.1 may even have CMSS which also uses the center channel. My first-gen Audigy Platinum uses it. You can find out if the Live! 5.1 uses CMSS by finding the "Creative Audio Console" in your Start > All Program > Creative folder.

If you don't see it there, make sure that you have the most recent drivers for the 5.1 card.

But that's not easy, either. Creative Labs has decided that it doesn't like it's customers anymore and has cut ALL support for the Live! series except for the 24-bit Live! card. They no longer list drivers on their website for those cards. Here is what you get when you go to find drivers for the Live! 5.1:

" You have selected Live! 5.1.

Yeah. Thanks a LOT, Creative Labs. Right?

But if you pal around online for drivers, you might find them somewhere. There are actually also alternate drivers NOT made by Creative Labs. You can find them at the following link...

Sorry for my rant. I'm kind of anti-creative after the way they've treated all of their customers - past and present - over the last few years.

If you need more information, please let me know. I've taken lots of time to help people with Sound Blaster products so that they don't have to deal with all of the frustration I have with that company.

Hope this answers your question. :)
