Go into control panel and search for sound icon.there are several things you need to check.is the mute box checked anywhere in the drop down menus.usually you can control this via keyboard using the fn button along with the blue icons on the top row of keyboard.but if you are in control panel in the sound settings check all the sliders are up and check tick boxes.there is an area whereby you can test the sound output.if there is no sound coming after you check then try to use earphones in the socket.if they are working it could mean the onboard speakers are faulty.i am assuming the sound card is okay the drivers for the sound card are okay.
lastly if still no sound you might try going into device manager .....click the windows key and pause break button together ...look for device manager....look for the sound card....uninstall it....then rescan for hardware changes...that will force the computer to reinstall the card which usually resets audio settings to default.hope this was helpful..good luck.
Just to make sure desktops almost never have built in speakers.
1. Check that your speakers work. Try them with an MP3 player or other device to make sure they work.
2. Check that the speaker is plugged in the right socket. Play something on computer and switch around the plug.
3. In windows press START->Control Panel->System->Device manager.
Right click on Sound device and write down the make (Company and a model number).
4a. Google their website and go to support->downloads/drivers and download the appropriate driver.
4b. If its an INTEL sound device you might have to look up the motherboard as it might be bundled with the motherboard driver.
Check if it is muted or not.
If you are using an external speaker, also check the cabling of the speaker.
If the cabling is Okay try to use your external speaker to other device to check the functionality of the computer.
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the (((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settingsthere also click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar if his does not fix the problem
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer hope this helps don
If your sound is not working you may need to update your sound drivers. If your card is a PCI card which you have slotted in yourself find the manufacturer of your card and windows operating systemand download the lastest driver from your manufacturers website. Once downloaded install by folwing the instructions on screen.
If its a built in card you may need to update the hardware drover from device manager. To do this follow:
Right Click My Desktop Click Properties On System Properies windows click on Hardare tab Click Device Manager IExpand the Sound, Video or game controllers menu and if there is a yellow sport next to any of the devices right click on it and click on Update Driver. Once done you shouldn't see any yellow sports.
Aso before you finish make sure your speaker connection is in the green hole at the back of your sound card.
Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards
For the first problem open your multimedia properties box under the audio tab you will have a sound recording device specified, check whether you have your device listed, usually you have your say ( Realtek HD Audio input or the respective company input device who supplied your audio drivers). If its not listed ten you might be having problem with the drivers or hardware you will have to call the service engineer to have to problem solved.
for the second one try the same solution. select the proper devices under the audio tab in multimedia settings.
