First check all the volume controlls and mute function on the laptop ,make sure you dont just have it turned down low or muted.
Next, plug some headphones or an earbud into the headphone jack and check to see if that works.
If you have no sound in either place:Click START - SETTINGS - CONTROLL PANEL - SYSTEM - click the HARDWARE tab at the top - click device manager - scroll down to where you see "sound, video & game controllers - click the + next to it, this will reveal your sound card and if there is no listing of it or a YELLOW exclamation point or question mark, this means it has no driver , is missing a driver or has a wrong driver installed. If ANY of these yellow marks are present, right click on the item thats marked and click on roll back driver, this should reinstall the last driver that was working.
If there is NO driver, you will have to post your laptop brand and model and i will find the correct driver for you and post a link here with instructions.
Hope this is helpful - please ost again if you need further assistance or rate if it solves things for you.

No sound on computer


Hello,

Exit all programs and then re-boot the computer first to see if the sound returns. If you hear the start up sound, things are probably working.

Here is a link to the Dell support page to investigate further:

No sound


Here are the tips to fix no sound problem:

1. Double-click the sound icon in the lower-right corner of the desktop. This loads the audio options menu onto the screen. Make sure none of the audio options are set to "Mute." If they are, uncheck the options, and the sound returns.
.
2. Disconnect any headphones you have connected to the "Line-out" port on the Acer laptop. If headphones or anything else is connected to the line-out, the audio is not going to be produced by the computer's built-in speakers.

3. Connect your computer to a local power source. If the battery is running low, the laptop often stops producing audio as a method to extend the battery life.

4. Download updated drivers for the Acer computer. If the sound drivers are out of date, the audio is not going to project from the speakers properly. Navigate to the Acer website, choose your country of origin, then click "Service and Support." Click "Driver Download" in the left corner of the screen and click the kind of computer you have. Choose the exact make and model of your computer and all of the available drivers are displayed. Click the audio driver and it downloads to your computer. Double-click the downloaded file, then follow the prompts to install the updated driver. Restart the computer and the audio now plays correctly on the system.

Sorry but is this a laptop or desktop? you have both in your listing!
One of a couple issues!
1) Sound card went bad.
2) Volume control is set too low?
3) lost the sound card driver -may need to reload the driver.
4) CD drive crashed! - does it

I can turn my laptop on but the screen is black


Hi,


Do you hear a beeping sound when turning it on? Try connecting an external monitor (Desktop monitor) then press FN+F8 (Dell laptop only) and FN+F4 (HP laptop only). If it works on an external monitor, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer. check the warranty and request for an LCD monitor replacement.

If you hear a beeping sound when turning on your laptop or no power (no light). you may need to reseat the memory (RAM) or check the AC adapter (power adapter).

Let me also know the system model and computer manufacturer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
