    I have the same problem w/ my Dell Dimension and yes did recently have to reinstall XP -- I swear the speakers worked before the hard drive crashed due to virus. Now reinstalled and virus free -- but also sound free. Help!

    Thought maybe I was missing the device driver -- but it's there --



    Location 65535 (Internal High Definition Audio Bus)



    But I get this error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

    Thanks in advance

    I loose speaker sounds & volume icon goes missing



    not system sounds

  • Anonymous Dec 13, 2008

    The speakers were working well until I stood up to put the volume up; as soon as I touched the volume I got a static discharge and that speaker stopped working. The left one works fine but the one with the volume shut down completely! Did I burn a circuit inside? How can I fix it? I can't figure out how to open the speaker to take a look inside!

    Hey there brnsuup,



    Have you recently done an operating system re-install? If so which one? And do you have all the drivers required for your system? Also the exact model number would be helpful. Dimension 300 does not show on the dell list.

The speakers wont work no sound


This article contains tips for resolving sound related issues in Windows XP.
No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

No matter what, I can't get any sound...


Click on the sound properties in control panel. see if the volume on the properties is up. or is NOT muted. Plug headphones into all the speaker jacks (should be the green plugs) and test each one. If that doesn't work, uninstall the driver and select reinstall.

Speakrs don't work on new HP Pavilion desktop.


If you're using Windows XP, go to the Control Panel, then double-click on Sound, then go to the Audio tab and make sure the playback device is set to your Realtek output.

If you're using Windows Vista, go to Control Panel and click on Hardware and Sound, then click on Sound. Make sure your Realtek device is selected with a green check mark. If it isn't, just click on it and then click the Set as Default button down below. Vista sound configuration is kinda quirky, and it does do some kind of detection when you plug a cable into an audio jack, so you might leave this screen up while you plug your speakers into the green audio jack in the sound card and see if it pops anything weird up.

Speakers are plugged in correctly, lights on but still no sound


Check your output jack again and make sure its on the green jack
and also check your speaker wires, if okay then check this;

For Windows XP;
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Sounds and Audio Devices
  3. On the Volume tab under "Device volume" check that sound is NOT muted
  4. Adjust volume control
  5. Check "Speaker Setup" under "Speaker settings" under the "Advanced" button
For Vista:
  1. Control Panel
  2. Sounds
  3. Select Speakers then properties
  4. Make sure device is enabled
  5. Test sound
  6. Adjust volume controls
Under Device Manager make sure that under your sound card that you dont have a yellow exclamation. Yellow exclamation indicates you need to install the correct driver.

Low volume

Loudness Equalization : on

Equalizer: Choose one (Jazz seems to be loudest setting but sounds of hallway effect so I use powerful for clarity.)

This has more than doubled the level of volume on my acer 5570.
