My sound doesn't work on my motherboard

I downloaded the driver that came with my motherboard for the sound. the driver came with this audio sound tester and it work, but when i tried using the the speaker(i have a built in speaker on my monitor) such as for gaming or watching a video on youtube there was no sound. i figure it must have been my speaker, so i hook my comp up a dell speaker that isn't attach to the monitor but that didn't work either. do i need to buy a certain kind of speaker?

Why did you download the driver in the first place?
Was the sound not working?
If this is the case and it still is not working then I suspect a dead sound card.
Replace it with a PCI card

Basic computer speakers are all the same

Audio output device


Okay, then reinstall the drivers.

If that doesn't do it, then you need to install a Sound Card.
This is because the audio chipset on the motherboard is bad.

Go to Device Manager, and reinstall?
Naa!
Works sometimes, sometimes not.

Go to eMachines Support, download, AND install the drivers.
This DOES work.

{ If it doesn't, as said the audio chipset on the motherboard is bad }

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1625

See where it states -
Need to know the hardware on your system to install the right driver?
Click on the -
Download Hardware Vendor Detection Utility

This IS NOT going to automatically download the audio driver you need.
It is going to tell you what audio chipset vendor you have, for your motherboard.

With this information you can choose between the two Audio driver files listed, and choose the correct one.

See which one you need?
Version 6.10.0.5274, Or, 6.10.5405.0 ?

Go to back to the driver page, and click on the appropriate driver.
A small window will come up on the right.
Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
At the top of this window tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

Desktop: The driver file will be on your desktop screen.

Documents: Click on the Windows logo button, (Start), and then on Documents.

Downloads: Click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents.
Now click on Downloads.

When you see the driver file, DOUBLE-click on it.
In the next three small windows click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

(Windows logo button, Restart)

No joy when Windows loads back up?
You need a Sound Card.

One example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1111756&csid=_61

[ The eMachines T5224 Desktop PC uses an Intel D945GCL motherboard,

http://www.ascendtech.us/intel-d945gcl-1066fsb-ddr2-pcie-x16-sata_i_mb4intd945gcl.aspx

Scroll down a little to the larger photo.
If one of the long white PCI expansion slots are open, you can install the above Sound Card in it.

If not, you can use the short Black PCI-E X1 connector,
BELOW the long white PCI slots.

Instead of a PCI sound card, use a PCI-Express x1 sound card,
Example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2941926&CatId=2769

DO NOT forget to unplug the computer from power, and FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside the computer, AND before taking that Sound Card out of it's anti-static bag, or carton.

Do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are?

My computer just stop to producing sound from speakers even the welcoming window xp sound,


Hi,

The audio driver might have been corrupted. You just need to download the appropriate audio driver for your motherboard. Go to the Device Manager and install all missing drivers for "Unknown Devices". Either connect to the internet or use the driver disc which came with your motherboard.

For those who doesn't know how to access Device Manager, please follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

For Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start -> Type devmgmt.msc (in the start search box) -> Right click Unknown device -> Properties -> Driver tab -> Update driver

Hope this helps.

Just to make sure desktops almost never have built in speakers.
1. Check that your speakers work. Try them with an MP3 player or other device to make sure they work.
2. Check that the speaker is plugged in the right socket. Play something on computer and switch around the plug.
3. In windows press START->Control Panel->System->Device manager.
Right click on Sound device and write down the make (Company and a model number).
4a. Google their website and go to support->downloads/drivers and download the appropriate driver.
4b. If its an INTEL sound device you might have to look up the motherboard as it might be bundled with the motherboard driver.

    Audio Problems


    dear loandtee,
    u said u reinstalledyour os. but u din't tell wat's your os.
    If it is xp then you have to instal audio driver of that particular motherboard.
    If it is vista then no need of audio driver.
    U also din't specify your motherboard make and also chipset.
    For example i'm havin asus motherboard for intel945gc chipset.
    So i can only tel general suggestion
    If u have motherboard cd then no problem. it wil have appropriate audio driver.
    If you have to download from net then u should find those two details.

    maybe you mean you installed a new window xp operating system. to enable your sound, run your motherboard cd driver. or you can go to the motherboard manufacturer website. enter your motherboard model no. Model no. can be located at your motherboard plate somewhere along the pci expansion slots. Then download audio driver

    Sound card drivers


    SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder. http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/audio/T1140_50_Audio.zip
