If they are color coded, the green plug is the speaker out. Make sure the audio is not muted. If you have recently updated, or reinstalled the OS, then check that the proper audio drivers are installed. Audio driver problems are common with compaq due to the fact that the wrong drivers often indicate proper operation. Find the original driver disk, and re-install from there.

Normally the lead which has a plug the same as a headphones plug goes into the green socket on the back or sometimes the front of the PC. The speakers should then already be joined together or have a lead that plugs one into the other.

No sound when i connect my dx2300 to external audio amplifier or other external sound system but internal speakers are o.k and working! why is this Mesh In nairobi Kenya


If the Internal speakers are working fine that means your Sound card and settings are fine. Just check the Cable, pin and the port you are plugging it into. Or else try connecting a headset on the sound card port to diagnose clearly.

My compaq evo d150 pc doesnt have a sound...i tried checking the devices but there were no drivers existing. I tried so many drivers but failed. i even tried putting an intex sound card but it didnt...


Sound on Compaq evo d150. The next site says:
http://www.orixrentec.com.my/hp_4.htm
Audio: "Integrated Intel Audio with Premium Internal Speaker".
So there should be a:
* speaker inside
* working on an Intel driver.

The chipset of the motherboard is Intel 845G.
The AC 97 audio driver can be installed by online detection of
your hardware using the Intel driver update utility:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/detect.htm

When using a PCI-slot for extra sound, the matching driver of the
PCI-audio-card should be installed. Of course external powered and wired speakers will be required as well.

External speakers don't work but internal speaker works fine.


Try your speakers on another system to make sure speakers are working.

Make sure volume control on PC is not set on mute.

Make sure onboard sound is enabled in BIOS

Try re-installing the sound card driver.

If all this fails and you have a spare slot on your PC just purchase a new sound card for about $10.00 or so.

You need a driver for your Compaq's audio card. You can input the exact model number at the site linked below to retrieve the one you need.

Dell speakers / compaq pc


They all use stereo plugs. Make sure you plug the speakers into the GREEN Hole. Also make sure that your speakers don't need any external power, also you might want to make sure you have the sound turned up too.

Let me know the results.

Speakers wont work for my Hp dc5000


You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.

My volume on my computer dose not work could you help me i have a windows vista


goto where taskbar is and double click on the a silver ball or speaker looking button and that should pull up the volume mixer. now if the speaker or ball in the right bottom hand corner of the screen has a red circle with and slash throught it - that means its muted and unmute your speakers through the volume mixer. if there is no red circle the turn the volume up and you should hear sound. if you see none to those - them you may need to check if your speakers r intalled. also - make sure your external speakers are pluged into the green jack in the back of your computer

Hard drive interface


Hi nortocd

(01) It will work in your USB hard disk enclosure if the enclosure supports SATA. If the enclosure supports the older style (ATA/EIDE) interface, then you'll just need to get an enclosure that supports SATA for your new hard disk. I like the Nextar external HDD (hard disk drive) enclosures.

You can find many external HDD enclosures made by various manufacturers these days. They're available for 3.5" (laptop-sized) and 5.25" (desktop PC-sized) HDDs supporting ATA/EIDE, SATA and SCSI HDDs and even Optical drives (DVD, etc.) Newegg is a great online source for computer & high tech-related equipment. They're prices are very competitive and their customer service is excellent. You can also find customer reviews of most of the products they sell, too, which can be very helpful.

(02) If you'd like this HDD to be portable, then I recommend you use an external HDD enclosure. They are available w/ USB and w/ eSATA connections (for connecting externally to your computer(s)). I don't recommend using IEEE1394 (firewire) as USB 2.0 is faster. eSATA is faster than USB 2.0 but is not a commonly available external connection on most computers yet.

(03) If a SATA port (connection) is not available inside your computer, you can install a SATA controller (if an expansion card slot is available in your computer) and connect your new HDD to the new controller.

(04) You can find information regarding your Compaq Presario HERE.

(05) I checked your motherboard specifications HERE. Your computer's original equipment does not support SATA. However, if you'd still like the HDD to be installed internally, just install a SATA controller and connect the new HDD to the SATA controller.
