I have no audio

When I turn on my computer I have no sound. Un checked the all the mutes (all mutes off) The software shows the music play but there is no sound (not even from the jack on the CD-RW unit works. I was in the BIOS and under advanced and the OnBoard AC'97 Audio is Enabled and I also Enabled Instant Music to see if that would work and no joy. What is left to do? I did have sound up until I installed a Sound blaster PCI card.

    Thanks ghoff1

    This may sound stupid… but when I was in the BIOS I did not see anywhere to turn off the on board audio. I’m using AMI 08.00.09 BIOS

    I do have the driver disk for the sound card and after I got your message last night I tried reloading them but I could not get the auto load funtion to load the drivers from the disk. I'm going to work on it today.

    Well I tried everything to get the SoundBlaster Audie card to work on the KV8 DE motherboard using AMI BOIS. I was on the Creative lab web site and I'm not the only one who is having problems. I down loaded the new drivers off there web sit and I still could not get the Soundblaster CT4760 model to work. It would show up in the device manager as enabled working fine. The software showed everything was working fine but I could not get any audio. I moved the soundblaster to a different PCI slot where as I saw in the device manager the unit came up as being in PCI slot 2 (PCI BUS 0 device 12) I moved it and it showed up as PCI slot 4 (PCI Bus 0 device 14 function 0) I looked under my advanced sittings under PCIPnp and these were the following sittings. Plug and Play O/S No, PCI latency Timer 64, Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA -- Yes, Palette Snooping -- Disabled and the IRQ3,4,5,7,8,10,14,15 were Available Under advanced sittings OnBoard AC'97 --Enabled, The only thing I didn't try changing was under power there was a (Power On PCI Device which was disabled I'm going to change it to enable and see if this works. Wish me luck.

Did you do the drivers? does the sound blaster have the drivers?if the onboard failed the add on should work, if it's not broken. make sure you have the right driver. you can download them on creative labs website, or asus website for that board, but disable the onboard if you use the add in sound blaster. this should work, if you had sound before, also make sure no conflicts with sound devices. hope thi helps happy new year..

    ok, good luck! if you fail, i have a idea for you, i found these usb external units. i had 2 buy one because my notebook onboard sound broke. i was happy to get sound back on it, and they are not too bad or expensive.(less than $10.00) then got a creative labs model for better quality. this may be a easy way out for you,as it was for me

Receiver won't play music from an MP3 device

Use your computer speaker as the sound device or use a headphones.

If it sounds good, it could just be your cable that goes to the receiver.

( using a Y cable to connect to one of the regular audio inputs.)

My built in mic is not working properly,when I call somebody hear me but I don't hear him!

If the other person can hear you then YOUR microphone is working fine.
The reason may be that his microphone is faulty (solution below)
  1. Make sure the volume is turned up on your speakers (and if using external speakers they are plugged in / turned on) . To increase volume go to Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices and adjust the slider on "Device Volume" . Also click on "Loudspeaker Volume" and adjust the sliders there as necessary.
  2. Can you hear other sounds (like playing music or videos)? If yes then you need to adjust the audio settings for your calling program (skype or whatever). Launch the appropriate program Click on Tools and ' test audio properties' on the program tool-bar. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. Try plugging in headphones and see if you can hear better on them.

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7



In the Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate the SOUND PLAYBACK box and click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a tick (check-mark) in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.

Also make sure that the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.

Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).

NOTE if microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.

That should be it.

My computer can play audios and videos but cannot produce any sound and i have tried to play both CDs, Flash and some music saved inside still the same problem occurs. what can i do? thanks.

-if your speakers are plugged in the wrong hole
-if the power adapter from the wall to the speaker fails
-if the speakers are muted in windows sounds properties (double click speaker icon by clock on desktop to check-making sure the MUTE box is NOT checked)
-if the sound card drivers are corrupt or not installed
(right click "right click "my computer" left click "properties"- click the "hardware" tab at the top- click on the "device manager" button
scroll down to where it says "sound and audio" with a + next to it. if there is a yellow ! or ? it means that your software drivers for the sound are corupt or missing and will need to be reinstalled using the install disk or downloaded drivers from the dell website which are free.

I have an ASUS A6M laptop and i cannot get any sound

Too many possibilities; can you be more specific, like when you try to play music, does the music "appear" to play, but no sound?
... or .. the music thing gives an error message like: "No sound or audio device..." or "need codec..."
Do videos play, but no sound?

If it worked before:
1. play a video and "un-mute" the sound bar.
2. Go to the "sound" icon in the [Control Panel] and change the volume setting (un-mute)

Please comment....

Hi, I can no longer get voices when I play my movies on dvd player, but there is sound, what button did my son inadvertently push!

Either he has turned on your Mute or he has changed your Audio Output. Check your Setup Menu under Audio and make sure that it has been set to output to either your TV or your stereo, depending on which source you normally use.

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD

Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.
