Hello,

Scan your computer with an anti-virus. It could an anti-virus infection. After scanning it, restart your computer and then check if you have the problem again.

I am not getting any signal or music when I sign on as I usually have received. What's wrong?


Assuming you have other sounds (as in games or playing MP3's) Check the volume on your speakers and the volume control down near the clock. Make sure nothing is muted and that the speakers powered on and plugged into teh computer (usually the little round light green hole)

If that's not it, click on start, then settings and Control Panel, doubleclick sounds and check the 'sounds' tab to see if it's set to 'no sounds', if it is, use the pulldown to pick windows default.

If you still have no sound, you may have a soundcard/driver problem.

The loudspeaker of my pc does not have sound the rest of options are working properly the sound valume and the icons shows without problem


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers

Have an emachines e550 does not play sound


You need to go to "control panel, than to "system properties", than to "device manager", ( than to "hardware" if you are using windows XP)

Click on "sound". If you do not see any "red X's" than your sound drivers are working fine.

After that, check your sound cord and power cord. Verify your sound is not muted or turned down.

I am getting no sound from my computer


hi dalereno...

sometimes a music/playback program will shut the sound off even if you have left it off it on in the windows volume control... if you haven't already done so, you should open all the controls (right click on the icon in your task bar to open them) and check the settings for all the types of sound available, not just that they are on, but the volume levels as well... it may be that something else has turned one or more of them down or off.

you may also want to check the sound and audio settings found in your control panel, be sure that the silence checkbox isn't marked and the rest of the settings are correct according to your hardware.

if your hardware isn't showing as an option in one or more places, then you will need to go to the system settings in the control panel, choose the hardware tab and click on the device manager. look for your sound card... if it is marked with anything (usually yellow or red), or it doesn't show at all then there is a problem with your sound card... if it is a plug and play, sometimes just taking it out and putting it back will do the trick... but you can try using the trouble-shooting helper first.

if it is an on-board device, then you will have to ask the manufacturer to replace it, if it is still under warranty, or buy a plug and play sound card, the price will depend on the quality of sound and the sound banks for midi files, but you can probably find on that's reasonably priced if you don't have great expectations or if you don't need to do any serious musical recordings.

please let me know if you have any more questions, or if any of this works for you :)

best of luck!

Hello,

Besure that the cd inserted is readable by your CD rom.

You can open your windows media player.
click file menu,
then click open. browse your CD drive and select all the musics files and then click ok.

If this not resolve then verify if your computer has a speaker, not mute the volume control. or the device controller is installed properly. (the audio driver)
