    I assume "something wrong" means "there's no sound" coming out of the speakers. A few things to check first:

    1) Make sure your cable to your speakers is plugged in, and plugged into the right jack. It should be the green one on the back of your PC.

    2) Click on the "speaker" icon down on your task bar (right-hand side), and that will open up your sound settings. Make sure it isn't a) muted, or b) turned way down low.

    3) If you have powered speakers (plugged into the wall), make sure they are getting power to them.

    After you've done all that, figure out what model computer you have, and based on that I can probably tell what kind of sound card you have (most these days are built onto the motherboard).

    Cheers
    Nick

If you don't know the sound card model/brand/type, the best solution is to use a driver finder program to scan the computer for all hardware and provide the drivers for it.

Dell dimension 8300 sound card


Hey there Susan G, this site will give you the on board audio drivers for your friend:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8300&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
You will have to indicate the OS and language. The download is free. This will get the onboard sound working. As for a add-on sound card, the installation disk should have come with it, but I recommend your friend remove it when the pc is powered down and reinstall after the onboard has returned to working state. If they have the sound card drivers with an installation disk, use it after hardware has been reinstalled. They should also check in the bios setup to have the PCI interface enabled, so the new soundcard can be recognized, and the drivers installed. If they dont have the drivers for the soundcard, they can download them from the manufacturers website support division. Good Luck and let me know if further instruction is required.

No sound comes from speakers


there is usually a cd with drivers for the sound card. otherwise, you'll need to have the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer's website(which I don't know, without a name for your computer).

also, check your control panel settings.
