How do I test the sound card when the control Panel Sounds states no audio devices?


Try booting with a Linux disk and see if sound works. If so you most likely have a driver issue.

How do I test the Sound card when the Control Panel sound states no audio device?


You should check in Device Manager to see if your audio driver is installed and working properly. If not, reload it. You could also check in the BIOS setup to see if the onboard audio has been disabled. There is also a possibility that the onboard audio has failed. You can order a sound board to install in the nachine to restore audio capability. Just disable the onboard audio in the BIOS, install the card and load the drivers supplied with the card. Hook your speaker to the jacks on the new card and you're back in action.

I was messing with the sound settings and now every sound or music that comes out of the speakers sound like chipmunks (high pitch voice) even the even sounds weird.. And I dont remember or know how to fix...


Right-click the desktop and select Personalization then click Sounds and change the Sound Scheme to non,that is for windows 7.

For XP Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel and then select "Sounds and Audio Devices"

Now click on the "Sounds" tab as shown and select the "Start Windows" sound also as shown.
Where it says "Windows XP Start up" change this to "None" and you will be OK

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window click on the Sounds (tab).
3. You will see a box with a list of items one being Asterisk.
4. Click on Asterisk, or any item in that box, and then click Test.
5. You should hear audio coming from your system.
6. If the clip was not long enough select another item, and then click Test.
7. Determine whether or not the distorted audio is present.

Configure the speakers

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window right-click your Speakers and select Configure Speakers.
3. Follow the on-screen setup, and Test the available configurations.
4. Identify whether or not one configuration appears to have less of an "echo" than others.
5. If the issue is resolved by modifying the configuration then you do not need to do anything further.




These fixes only work for windows and not any third party software.So if you have a sound card,you will have to use the app for it.

Has a sound card, reinstalled audio drivers, still no sound on my speakers, what else can i do?


The CD has "Diagnosticsand utilities" listed under the "Contents". You will have to boot from that CDdisk. To do this, power on your computer and tap the key to bring youto the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit key. Select the "Run the32 Bit Dell Diagnostics". Select "Custom Tests" and run the audio test. If itworks using the diagnostics then your sound circuit is O.K. and you have a software problem or settings for your your audio device is not set-up properly.

Have a emachine w4885 desktop. cannot get any sound. I is teling me I have no audio device, i used to have on. can anyone help, i need my music


hello, if it was working before, here is few things you can check, first lets verify that for some reason it is not driver issue, go in device manager and make sure there is no yellow excalmation mark in front of multimedia/audio device, if yes, follow this link and reinstall drivers and test again
http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Audio/Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.5170_XPx86_A.zip?acerid=633934348147566657&Step1=Desktop&Step2=W Series&Step3=W4686&OS=X01&LC=en&BC=eMachines&SC=PA_6E
if no excalmation mark is there and you do see your audio card in the list, try this:
go to control panel, double click the"sounds and audio devices", then click on "sounds" tab and make sure "Windows default" is selected under "sound scheme". Now go to "Audio" tab and make sure under "Sound Playback" your sound card is listed as default device. finally go to "volume" tab and make sure "Mute" is NOT checked, and "place volume icon in the taskbar" IS checked. Click "APPLY" then OK.
test your sound.
hope this helps, let me know if you any more questions.

regards

My computer doesn't have sound drivers


Its possible that the audio driver for your computer is not installed properly. just get the driver CDs and reinstall it. This is the usual case for no audio in computers..

well, another possibility is that your speakers are bad... try to use a headset or another speaker to test the audio...
