Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.
Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer. If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again. If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)
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.
The issue is present while you have external speakers connect or on the built in ones? If on both try check in device manager to see if you have any yellow sign on the sound devices area .Also double click on the sound device manager and then on troubleshooting button .If still same try reinstalling the sound driver or update the existing one .
If you cannot hear the sound you have recorded. Make sure that the sound you record generates the visual pattern. This confirms that at least your microphone is working.
In any of the upper case your audio driver must be install and your audio hardware must be in working order. You can check this in Windows Device Manager. To go to device manager you right click "My Computer" in XP and In Windows Vista and Windows 7 its "Computer. After right clicking it select Manage and on the left pane select the Device Manager and you will see the list of devices and their installed drivers. Make sure all the audio devices and there drivers are not showing any errors.
Make sure that you speakers are not mute. If you take a look at the bottom right corner of your computer screen you will see a speaker icon.make sure there is no "X" or any other RED signs on them which represents mute states.
Similarly check other related settings. Go control panel after going to the start menu and look for the "Sound" icon and make sure there is not anything suspicious.
If all the above is fine and okay than look for any problems in your speakers that are open or if you are wearing them as Headphones or earphones and try to replace them to test them. Maybe the sound is coming but the speakers might be faulty make sure you increase the volume of the speakers when you hear any recordings.
Make sure the speakers are okay by listening to music or movie that you might get free from internet or in Disk collections. This is the way you can easily detect the problem.
If you can hear sound from music and movies than your microphone hardware might be faulty.
ok once you get to the sound icon in your control panel click and go into and you should see one thats says speakers and one that says digital output if it doesn't have a green check over the speakers then highlight it and set it as defult, or if there is nothing under the playback tab, then you will have to download the sound drivers again for windows do an ms update, or look up your sound device and look for the drivers for it over the net or use the program drivermax, but do an update from microsoft is the best bet and then go get ccleaner program from download.com run it and clean things up do a defrag as well and go from there ok if need more help call me at 952-451-0518 ask for Travis A. any time 24/7 the fixist good luck and have a nice day
your speaker is NOT a device that the computer can detect. You got a bad sound device problem. Check your motherboard's site for support (for built-in sound card). You might need to reinstall the sound card drivers. Try to check in the "Device manager". You must have the sound device installed before sound can be heard from the speakers :-)
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.
