Question about HP Compaq nc6120 Notebook

1 Answer

Sound surge My speakers, even if I plug in external speakers or a headset, sort of do this "surging" thing. Almost like a vibrato in a voice. It ends up sounding like Ch-ch-ch ch ch ch ch ch chhhhhhhh ch ch ch ch ch ch chhhhhh..... Just got a new router, so it's not that. I'm about to try it hard wired instead of with wireless intenet.

No, you need not to install soud/audio driver if its work with external speakers. Its seems that the internal speaker of your laptop has got damaged. So you shuld call your vendor for service. If you are in warranty it will be free for you.

SOURCE: Sound only works with headset. No longer comes

If the sound is working through another device then it seems that the internal speakers are bad. Because if the sound card was bad you wouldn't have any sound whatsoever, same goes for drivers. Probably just some bad speakers. If you have some other external speakers try plugging them into the headphone port and see if that helps.

SOURCE: My laptop kicks everybody else off of the wireless router including the main desktop which is hard wired to the router.

Perhaps its using its own address that is forcing the other computers to lose theirs. Under its network settings, make sure its set to DHCP. This means it will get an auto-IPadress from the router and not use its own one.

Dell speaker connection color code needed

  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.

    Good luck

    HP PL5060N 50 my plasma will not start, I have a surge multiple plug, here in Mexico electric surge is very common, when i try to turn it on, it makes a click sound and turn off, It wont even display...

    The "Clicking sound is what gives it away. It would seem that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
    You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

    2004 durango with a 4.7 v8, surges at idle upon start-up.

    the surges at idle could be a number of problems ranging from anything. if at all possible take it to a mechanic and have him or her run an obd diagnostic utility on it the surges could be from fouling spark plugs 02 censors....etc even a leaky gasket allowing water in the fuel will cause surger maybe even a fuel filter issue. hard to tell without any hands on with the vehicle.

    I am no tgetting sound from external speakers

    Power down your machine
    Unplug everything from it
    Open it up
    Remove your sound card and put it back in
    Reverse the step and boot your machine
    If it still doesn't work then you'll need to replace your sound card. You can find really good ones on Amazon for $25 or so.Remember to always turn off your speakers before you plug them into your computer. Since they are probably powered via AC adapter that surge of power could have shorted out your card. Good luck!!
