Computer sound. Check if speakers are working at another computer.. If so check that speakers mini jack are connected in right socket.(a dot with 3 brackets at 2 sides.) , should be a green socket fitted in a green female socket.. Still no sound install drivers and software that comes with motherboard, usually work 99%. There?s specific files needed for functionality depending on sound software that windows doesn?t have. If still no sound go to control panel, system,, hardware, device manager, sound video game controllers and uninstall all sound drivers. Reboot and let windows pickup up onboard sound and install drivers auto. if still no sound reinstall windows, make sure you?re not selecting new or format your hard drive, Ask someone that has done it before. This solves usually all my problems. If still no sound buy a separate souncard, they are cheap and use the disk that?s supplied.

T2042 emachines audio problems


It's easy to fix this problem.

Stop using the audio chipset on the motherboard, and install a Sound Card.

They are economical, and will surpass the audio quality of that eMachines motherboard, by a mile.

The eMachines T2042 Desktop PC, uses one of these TriGem Imperial motherboards,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket478/imperial.shtml

Scrolling down you can see the audio is AC'97.
Not worth writing home to Mom about.

The Sound Card you obtain will go into one of those long white PCI slots.
(There are 3)

Any available PCI slot that is open, with no adapter card in it.

Here is but one example of a sound card that will work,

Hi Carnie. It sounds like you are in a pickle. I think youpaid WAY too much for the laptop and that's typical of Hardly Normal. Over pricingeverything and sticking you with a huge loan. Given her/your situation I wouldconsider talking to a Credit assessor. There are institutions (advertised on TVetc.) that offer to sort out your credit problems. They will stop the harassment,stop the loan, stop interest and structure the loan in such a way that you canafford it. These finance institutions are relentless. I have been in exactlythe same situation after a car accident a few years ago I was off work foralmost a year and the banks and credit card institutions are completelyruthless. You are entitled by law, especially under duress, to write to thefinance institutions explaining your situation and asking for a suspension ofinterest and a renegotiation of payments. They will never tell you this as theysee it as a way of you getting out of the loan. Search the internet for thedebt management services here in Australia. I'm sure you will find the rightpeople who can help you.

if it is built into the motherboard you cannot change it wthout changing the motherboard.
I assume you are using Windows (prob Vista on machine age)
go to the control panel - sounds and run the test - sometimes that fixes sound issues
if not uninstall the driver and let windows find the hardware and re-install it.
Let me know if you are still having problems.

Having speakers to work on vizo desk top . all in on desktop!


You need to remove the unknows first. Try the speakers on another device. You could try a walkman, another computer or anything with an 1/8th" Stereo jack. Prove that the speakers work or get a pair of headphones to check out your PC. If you are using the green jack on the back try the headphone jack on the front. If the front works and the back doesn't check the sound card options / set up. Some have an icon by the time in the bottom right corner others will need to be found under the sound effects manager or the sounds and audio devices icon. I suspect if you get this far something has been turned off in the software.

If this is a desktop or tower system, check where you're connecting the speakers. Maybe a PCI sound card was installed and you're plugging into the jack for the integrated sound.

Make sure integrated sound is enabled in the computer's BIOS setup. It may have gotten turned off somehow.

Try reinstalling the sound drivers. You can usually get the latest versions by visiting the manufacturer's website. The drivers may have become corrupted or been uninstalled.

In a laptop computer, check that the manual volume control (some laptops have them) isn't turned all the way down.

As a last resort, add new sound hardware. For desktops, get a PCI sound card or USB speakers that just plug into an available USB port. (These would work for laptops as well.)

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
