How d0 i get audio speakers to workj


Assuming the speakers are working, you can test them by plugging them into any other headphone jack, for example your cell phone. Check drivers & etc on computer make sure sound card installed correct. Also verify you are using the correct jack, there may be several for example microphone line in if you have a 5.1 stereo card they may also be ports for the rear speakers.

My cooling fan on my video card is not running smoothly. Can I just replace the fan? I have a Gateway DX4710-UB002A.


You will find a new video card much easier and less expensive to replace. The fan isn't made to replace so chances of finding the part is slim and none.

Best of it

Installed a new graphic cards for Gateway DX4710-UB801A, it works for a day, but the next day, it wouldn't turn on, the power supply is not running.


Pull the new graphics card out to see if the power supply will start up, if no change, you will need a new power supply module.

Using headphones


You can get a set of speakers that has a headphone jack on front (it will shut off the speakers when headphones are in) or you can unplug the speakers and plug in the head phones. Some PCs have a red and green jack in front - plug in headphones to the green, you should have the speakers shut off till you unplug. All else fails they make a headphone/mic extender that sits like a hockey puck on the desk, has cables to the mic and speaker jacks on back of the PC and on the puck part has a jack for speakers, mic and headphone - some switched manually by you, some switch when the headphones plug in. If you had posted the model I could see if your machine has front red and green jacks.

I cannot hear any sound through my headphones when connected to my pc


go to your control panel, and look for the area for sound and set playback for headphones rahter then speakers.
or you can plug your head phones into the jack that your speakers would normally plug into.

Audio cuts in and out in media center or while watching a dvd


Check to ensure that the speaker connection plug is fully inserted into the speaker jack on the computer. Do the same for the power connection at the speaker, too. Slightly wiggle or twist the connections and wires - one at a time to isolate the source of the failure (can be the power plug or wire, audio plug or wire, or even the jack on the PC . If related to the speaker plug, try using the speakers in another speaker jack on the PC - or other device (mp3 player, etc.) if the problem is still present on both locations, it is related to the speakers / power. Try using a pair of headphones plugged directly into the speaker jack on the PC to see if the problem is present still. If the problem is common to both speaker and headphones, the jack on the PC is likely the culprit, and a new sound card will probably have to be installed. Otherwise, replace / repair the speaker cable, plug or system.

The likely source of the problem is a stretched wire along the cord - or at the plug. A repair can be attempted if desired - or replace the speaker system if lacking tools or if unsure how to go about it.

I have a hp pacilion dv 1000 and i have no sound on my speakers but when i connect the headphone i do get sound what could be causing this problem can someone help. ty


the headphone jack has dual contacts per side in order to re-connect your speakers when you pull the head phones out....these contacts might not be contacting each other so your problem would be the head phone jack...replace the jack...of course this is assuming that your speakers are working.
good luck

My speakers are not working. The computer came with Realtek speakers but not with the normal jack. I believe it is a USB jack which I plugged into two USB ports above where the jacks would go. I'm not sure...


Check if your computer has a sound card available
Check on the back of your computer
Power up you set of speakers, some speakers doesn;t work without power
Check the speakers connections (between them)

I have acer extensa 4220 laptop when i plug in head phones in the laptop the sound still keeps on coming from the built in speakers and not the head phones


khalid276,

I had this problem also on my acer aspire 5520. This laptop has 2 3.5mm jacks. It was a bit embarrassing, but I had the headphones plugged into the input jack. Make sure that you have the head phones jack plugged into the correct jack.

I hope this helps!

Right speaker cutting in and out when watching movies and listening to music


plug a pair of head phones in the speaker jackon the computer and play a video or some music.
If the head phones cut out also, you can rule out the speakers being the problem.
If the head phones work properly, its time to get a new pair of speakers.
Now , If the cutting out is caused by the computer , it can be a bunch of things
1. not enough bandwidth in steaming audio or video
2. video driver issues
3. codecs in your players
4. spyware
5. other programs you have running in the background
I would attack the last first, turn of everything but your media player, empty your temporary internet files and cookies, check for any updates or hotfixes for your media player, and check for video driver updates.
Hope this short guide helps you . Please post here again if you need further assistance and please rate the assistance at the end.
