If the sound card is still physically in the machine, go into device manager, right click on any component and select scan for hardware changes.

Speakers at 100% but no sound


Are the speakers connected the the correct audio port at the back of your computer or on the sound card? Audio port is the "green" port you'll see on the sound card

Fix speaker on dell t3500


Easier to buy a set of external speakers. Just make sure you have a sound card that has a port to plug the speaker into. If not it's still easier to buy a PCI Sound Card and a set of speakers.

How do you attach the speaker system on a dell dimension c521.


dheiyzhie_0.jpg

The green port on the back of your computer is for small speakers, this is the one mostly used. If you have subwoofer connect it to the orange port. The black port is used if you have surround speakers. The white port is for side surround speaker.
This is the integrated or built in sound card. If you have add on sound card then you need to use that instead. You can get the manual of your computer by clicking on this link.

Not sound pc dell dimension 8250


  • Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.
  • Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.
  • Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.
  • Perform a System Restore If Necessar
  • If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."
  • Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."
  • 3 Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.
  • Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
  • Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
  • Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  • Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.
  • Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  • Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

    My speakers work but there is no sound coming out of my computer


    Try rolling back your sound drivers (control panel, system, hardware, device manager, sound and audio devices, right click your sound hardware, properties, drivers), if this fixes the issue go to microsoft update, run the 'custom' scan...it should show you an update to your sound card/hardware, click the little "+" sign beside the update and click the little "Do not show this update again" checkbox. This will prevent automatic updates from "fixing" your drivers. Occasionally Microsoft sends out updates that are incompatible with a particular machines' setup.
    Hope it helps.

    I cannot get my speaker to work on my dell dimension 4700. Speakers will work on other computer. Just had the hardrive switched on computer but they said that the speakers were working there. I have tried...


    Hi,
    The speaker jack is coloured green on newer computers and usually sits alongside a blue and a pink jack. Firstly, make sure your speakers are plugged into the green socket. If this doesn't solve the problem, you need to check in "device manager to make sure your sound card is installed correctly. Make sure the sound card is listed in "device manager" then make sure there is no yellow dot next to your sound card. If there is a yellow dot next to your device, it's a simple matter of downloading the correct driver for the sound card. If you need further assistance regarding this don't hesitate to ask me.
    Best wishes,

    NO SPEAKERS SOUND


    Ok, there is a plug that looks green on the back of the unit. Match the color coding on the back of the unit and on the sound card. Make suire its plugged in the right hole because you got LINE IN- MIC and SPEAKER.. if its a 7.1 sound card then you probably got CENTER- RIGHT AND LEFT and so on.. check your cabling..

    CAN'T CHANGE MY VOLUME SETTINGS ? COMPUTOR DOESN'T HAS SPEAKER HOOK UPS !


    If the computer is the dell in title, then the speakers socket is the green jack , you find one at the back of computer, and one behind the front sliding panel.

    If the computer is different from the one in title, then you may need to install an audio card into the computer.

    In this case a simple solution may be installing an external audio card, klike the ones below.

    SoundWave 7.1 Audio Adapter

    USB Audio Adapter 3D Sound 5.1 CH Controller

    If instead your computer has the audio jack , but has no sount it may need driver setup.
    In that case follow instructions on link below to download and install drivers.

    To make it easy for you this is the default audio driver for Dimension 2400 systems. Click on this link ---> http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=122481
    this would install your integrated audio driver for your system.
    Let me know if this resolved this issue.

    Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


    Hi rjlevesque

    For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

    Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

    I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

    Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

    You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

    Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

    green = speakers
    pink = mic
    blue = line in

    Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

    If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

    If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

    If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

    If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


    Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

    Thank you
    BJ
