My sound wont work on my emachine


There are a few simple things to check first:

  • Make sure your computer has a sound card.

    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

    1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.
      gl_ico.png Note

      If you think you have a sound card installed but you don't see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed there.

    3. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

    4. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

  • Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.

  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

    On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.

  • Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.

    1. Open Volume Control by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then, under Audio Devices and Sound, clicking Adjust system volume.

    2. Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.

    gl_ico.png Note

    Some mobile PCs have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a mobile PC, check the external volume control.

  • Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

  • If you need more help post back!
    Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!

In my coumputeor sound is not play?


First check to make sure your speaker/headphone plug is properly inserted in the light-green jack and that the speakers have power. Also check the Sound control panel to make sure the speakers are not muted.

If this doesn't work, the audio driver is probably missing. The following procedure is for Microsoft Windows.
  1. Open the System Control Panel (it may be categorized under Performance and Maintenance).
  2. Click the Hardware tab.
  3. Click the Device Manager button.
  4. Look for audio devices in the list. If there is an audio device with a yellow warning icon on it, you are missing the audio driver. In that case, try right-clicking on the device and selecting Properties from the pop-up menu. Click Update driver (if you have the driver CD that goes with the motherboard, put it in your optical drive first). You probably have a motherboard with integrated audio, which is why I focus on that. If you have a separate audio card, use the software for the audio card instead.
If you do not have the driver CD, go to the motherboard manufacturer's website and search the support pages for downloads for your model. If you have a major brand computer, you should be able to get it from the support page for your computer model.

No sound my system


If there is no sound coming from your computer try these "simple" but common solutions first.

1. Make sure the power cord is plugged into an outlet and the speakers are turned on.
*Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.
*Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer.
2. Make sure your computer has a sound card and that it is enabled and working properly:
To open Device Manger...
*Start
*Control Panel
*System and Maintenance
*Device Manager
*Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category.
If a sound card is listed, you have one installed.
*Check the status of the driver and update if necessary.
3. Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.
To open Volume Control...
*Click the Start button ,
*Click Control Panel
*Click Hardware and Sound
*Under Audio Devices and Sound, click Adjust system volume.
*Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.
If you still have no sound after checking the solutions above, you more than likely have a bad sound card.

My speakers


is the drive for the speakers installed?

Check device manager. This can be done in Win XP by right clicking my computer, properties, hardware, then click device manager. Alternative way to enter device manager is by clicking start menu, control panel, system (performance and maintenance), hardware then device manager.

In the deice manager window see if any question marks or exclamation points are visible.

If so, see if it the mark is for an audio device.

If it is an audio device, uninstall the device.

Have the driver ready for the sound card by either a driver disk or by downloading the driver from the manufacturer website. This would be Dell, gateway, HP if you bought a name brand PC.

If this does not help, I need more details about your computer such as Vender, motherboard, and dedicated sound card if applicable.
