This probably sounds elementary, but start from the beginning. I'm assuming Windows XP on a PC Desktop but the concepts are the same no matter what operating system.

1. Are your speakers plugged in to a power source?
2. Are they turned on?
3. Is the volume turned up on the speakers?
4. Are your speakers plugged into the (usually green) audio port on your computer?
5. Go into control panel, sounds and audio devices and check to make sure that sound is not on "mute".
5. On the Audio tab, check to make sure it shows a default sound device for each item. If not, either your sound card is malfunctioning or you need to download and install a current driver from the manufacturer's website.

Hope this helps!

Can't hear them on skype,they hear me very well


I assume you are using headphone for skype, but this test will work for speakers too. Open windows media player and try to play one of the pre-loaded songs. If you cant hear it check your computers volume controls (double click the speaker looking thing by the time clock, or access through control panel). Also check to make sure that the computer is not feeding the sound out through the digital output. This can be found by checking in control panel in the same place as your volume is. If it is feeding out to digital, change it to the analog output. Once you have sound with media player, you should have sound with Skype.
Hope this helps

Gateway dx4840-11e. During video can hear music but not actor voices. What to do?


do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc

I can not hear sound what problem of this?


Several things must be in place to hear sounds on your pc.
You must have speakers - the kind you not only plug into your pc but you must also plug them into your wall to have a louder sound. OR --- you can use head phones. The headphones plug into your pc sound card.

You must have a sound card or onboard sound

You must have a sound card DRIVER.

These three things and some reading will get you going

Best of it

there is no unlock, safe mode allows you to correct the problem.

You may experience any of the following symptoms on your Windows XP-based computer:
  • You do not hear sound from the computer's speakers or headphones.
  • A sound seems to be played, but you do not hear anything.
  • A sound is played, but it stops suddenly.
  • The sound skips or misses in some areas.
  • The sound is distorted or scratchy.
  • The computer stops responding when a sound is played.
  • The computer restarts when a sound is played.
  • You receive an error message when you try to play sound. Error messages could include the following:

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

I need sound on my computer....


Sorry to hear about your sound problems.
1. We can't diagnose your problems with the information you have left us.
If your speakers are with a amplifier, you may have a Bad Amp.
If you do not, you may have a Bad connection to the rear of your PC.

If you have a amplifier hocked up to your system, most of the time, if you unplug the sound, at the rear of the unit, you can hear a static sound, if you can hear this, your amp is working and you may have to reload the drivers for the sound system on your pc.

Before going thru all this trouble, you should check all connections first before proceeding any further.
Hope this information has help you somewhat. !!
Readers, please rate your technicians
