Built in pc speakers are just for error beeps etc. You most likely have on-board sound. I would try getting a sound card (with drivers) Put it in a free pci slot & connect your speakers to it. :)

Does the Dell Vostro 220 have built in speakers and if so how do I activate them?


No the desktop doesn't have internal speakers. Connect external speakers to the Line Out (green audio jack) for basic computer headphones and speakers with an integrated amplifier. See the manual for directions on setting up surround sound systems. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos220/en/index.htm Make sure the speakers are on and have power, if needed.

I hope this helps.

I am not getting any signal or music when I sign on as I usually have received. What's wrong?


Assuming you have other sounds (as in games or playing MP3's) Check the volume on your speakers and the volume control down near the clock. Make sure nothing is muted and that the speakers powered on and plugged into teh computer (usually the little round light green hole)

If that's not it, click on start, then settings and Control Panel, doubleclick sounds and check the 'sounds' tab to see if it's set to 'no sounds', if it is, use the pulldown to pick windows default.

If you still have no sound, you may have a soundcard/driver problem.

Just bought a new emachine computer with speakers, but the speakers do not work. They are plugged in and still no sound, volume set. ?????


Windows has a habit of muting the sound. Please click open the Volume icon from the right bottom corner of the screen. It is shaped like a big speaker. Unmute everything to get sound from the speakers.

Says no active mixer divices installed,,speakers not working


Your computer came with sound hardware built in. You might have to reload the drivers for your audio hardware, off of the disk provided with your computer. If you misplaced the disks you can go to the eMachines website and request replacement disks, http://www.emachines.com

I have no sound on my computer-emachine T3095


The type of speakers you choose for yourself have several factors that come into play:
your location (does your sound have a volume limit such as a noise ordinance in an apartment complex)
What are they being used for (music, games, movies, work, voip chat)
Your music genre preference (heavier bass means you will want an actual bass)
sound quality (are you an audiophile or does sound quality not truly matter to you.)

I got a decent pair of 5.1 surround sound speakers for just under 100$ by logitech, but a buddy of mine purchased a 300 dollar set that shakes his room when he plays FPSs

No sound or mixer devices


a. your sound device may be built right in to your motherboard (make sure it's enabled in your bios)
b. you probably don't have installed any drivers for your sound device- install drivers by going into the motherboard manufacturer or your computer manufacturer.. post details and will help you look for them

Enquiry: Is it essential to have speakers that have a direct power lead. The computer in question is HPA6332 - 9500.


Page 17 provides guidance for connecting speakers to an HP A6332.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00839729.pdf

This excerpt on page 17 can be clarified by adding "IF," before the sentence.

"NOTE: Speakers may be passive (no power button and no power cord) or active (power
button or power cord). Your computer supports only active (powered) speaker systems; the
speaker system must have its own power cord."

This is an excerpt from page 21

"Speaker types

Speakers may be included with the monitor (select models only) or are sold separately.
Refer to the product documentation for your speakers.
Your computer supports only an active (powered) speaker system. An active speaker
system must have its own power cord. A home audio system does not require active
speakers, because the receiver provides amplification."

Generally speaking, manufacturers offer many types of speakers for use with their computers. If the speakers that originally came with your computer had a extrernal power supply, then it would probably be best to use externally powered speakers.

I have seen many older computers and even some budget computers that use the sound card for amplification. Most modern sound cards are primarilly focused on sound processing, and not necessarilly amplification.

Its impossible to know whether your system requires powered or non-powered speakers because I have no way of knowing your computers specific configuration. However, I think it is safe to say, if you use externally powered speakers in either case, you should be ok.

If you call the manufacturer, or go to its web site, your original computer configuration can normally be provided if you provide its serial number.

Hope this helps - Good Luck!
