Sound no longer works on my computer

My grandson came to visit and played his IPOD through my computer so we could all hear it. When he left he said he replugged my speakers back in, but now the sound doesn't work at all on my computer. I've checked in settings and in the windows media manager, but sound information indicates it is on and volume at 100%. Have rebooted several times also. Speakers are on and turned up. STill nothing. What else can I look at or try to fix this? Thanks!

Look at where the speakers plug into the computer. There are multiple plugs that look the same. If this is in the back of the computer, there are probably six colored ports. Try the other ones until you find one that works. This won't hurt your computer if you put it in the wrong one. If this doesn't fix it, your problem could be a driver that you need to download. If moving the plug to the different ports doesn't help, post a comment, updating the situation, and I will see what I can do. Hope this helps.

Speakers should be plugged into the GREEN jack on the back of the computer. Also, RIGHT click on the speaker icon in the lower right and Open Volume Controls. Make sure that all slide controls are at least midway.

Forgot lock code for ipod 8gb grandson lockd it and doesnt remember the code to unlock it


Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."

Speakers only produce sound when computer is first on.... like the first hour or two. If computer is left on and I need to hear something I have to restart.


Chances are that this is a computer problem but first you need to eliminate the speakers. Disconnect the speakers from the computer and plug them into you iPod. Start it playing and leave it - check that 2 hours later there is music coming from them or longer if you like. If there is still music then the speakers are fine and the problem is the computer.
You will need help on site to sort that.

Ipod dock is broken on xtrememac tango


well your lucky the dock gave up the ghost before your ipod.
it's possible there is some damage to your ipod also but those docks will fry your ipod toot sweet.
I would not use the dock at all but if you are i would first try hooking your ipod up to a computer with a usb just to make sure it's not damaged in the charging port.

if you have a RCA jack in the dock you can use that, but the ipod is not made to play through the charging port, the docks are an after thought and I am not sure why but possibly incorrect voltage or voltage surges, but i have replaced at least 30 motherboards of customers who played them on docks.
your ipod wouldn't by chance be a 30gb video or a 3rd gen nano?
seems those are the 2 most susceptible to this issue.

My Warning: if it still plays music leave it off the dock

When I plug in my Ipod to the Aux.....


I am having a smilar problem, I think the aux jack itself is messed up. I lose the sound out of the left channel, then I jiggle the connection a bit and get the sound back... Often when you can hear instruments and no voice you are hearing only a left or right track. Are you sure both the left and right is working?
