Why can't I get sound on my tablet?.


There are a few ways to solve this problem.
Firstly, turn the device off.
2. Make sure your headphones are plugged ALL the way in (you should hear a click sound)
3. Press the on/off button and the volume up button at the SAME TIME
4. Once the screen is on let the on/off button go
5. DO NOT let the volume up button go
6. Wait until the tablet has finished loading all settings up.
7. Let volume up button go.
It should work now.

My laptop has no sound yet I have no money to purchase a sound driver. can I get a free one


Laptop's sound can fail to work for a couple of reasons:

(1) the sound drivers are not properly installed - as far as I know, every computer manufacturer's web site will allow you to download their hardware drivers for free. Hope you've already done that.

(2) the sound hardware in the laptop are either disconnected or failed - a small number of laptops actually use separate sound cards (instead of integrating the audio hardware on the main board). Hopefully you've already checked that, too.

(3) the audio output jack (headphone) is damaged - in which case the sound hardware is functioning 100%, but there's no sound produced due to a shorted jack.

That being said, if it's neither of the above, the cheapest means of getting some basic sound to a muted laptop would be a USB sound card and a set of external laptop speakers. If it sounds elaborate and expensive, I assure you it's not. Assuming you're running Windows (hopefully XP or newer), you can buy a USB sound card on eBay for around $2 and pay about the same price for a cheap set of cheesy laptop speakers - plug the USB sound card into a working USB port, plug the speakers into the USB sound card, it's plug and play, and ... viola - you'll get $4 worth of cheap sound. It's a bit cumbersome but it's a cheap workaround that I've done before when a laptop went mute and I had only a shoestring budget to work with...

Volume up/down buttons don't work unless I reboot.


Hi visionair , try to shut down the pc. Then remove all cables from the computer. If it is a laptop, remove the battery, if it is a desktop, proceed to the next step.

Push and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Then plug back all the cables (including battery if it is a laptop) and turn on the pc.

Check the volume up/down buttons if it works.

Hope this helps....

Ibm t41 sound not working


Just to try the obvious...
The volume buttons on the laptop underneath the screen work independently to the volume controls in Windows. Have you tried pressing and holding the volume up button and then playing a sound?

Sound problem


Check all the usual suspects. Windows Volume, speakers volume. Make sure its not muted in the hardware. There is a key function that can mute or change the volume.

Its the light blue function key at the bottome left ( usually). You hold that down and press the light blue volume button ( usually at the top left or right keys.

Did it work one day and just stop?

Also go into the sound settings and make sure the sound device for the laptop is selected.

If none of these things work, you may have a bad sound card on the mother board which requires a new Mainboard.

I would have someone who knows about computers give it a once over. find someone you know who can just give it a quick once over before spending any money.

Alot of times the Key function volume controls will get turned off but still shows that its on in windows. Depending on the laptop
