Please check device manager. Drivers for your sound card may not be installed properly.

Also check for speakers connection.

See also if sounds would work with earphones.


Thanks.

Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart


Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

Dell xps 410 was in use, it beeped and shut down. Then it started powering up and off repeatedly. I pulled the plug to stop the sequence. When I repowered it, it now comes on, fan runs, dvd drives


It sounds as if you have a virus of some kind. I have just dealt with a similar problem. Even after the virus(s) were removed the service was still unable to start. The Operating System had been corrupted and required a re-install to get the system working again. System repair and restore failed. If the only problem is the fan running at full speed then you may need to apply a new layer of thermal paste. This stuff can go dry if you use the cheap stuff or it is old.

System runs from about 3 to 15 secs then shuts down. That doesn't give me enough time to do anything in the BIOS setup when pressing F2. Then the system refuses to start (by pressing the power button)...


Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged. The computer should stay on even without an operating system or hard drive installed.

Hi suddenly my sound is not working in my newly bought laptop model is compaq presario cq 40 newly bought


Try this:

Shut down the laptop, disconnect anything plugged into it, remove the battery and hold down the power switch for 15 seconds (with no power or anything attached to laptop).

Reconnect A/C power and power it back up. See if that works for you.

If not, when you get booted into Window, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore.

Follow the prompts and choose a bold date back to a time prior to when you lost sound. When it reboots, you will probably have sound.

Let me know if you need further help.

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.

No Power


Try holding down F8 when restarting pc. Choose safe mode and run your AntiVirus again. Make sure to empty any quarentine items.
Sometimes this finds a few more. Make sure to turn off system restore before scan and turn back on after.
If this doesn't work you may need to do a format and reinstall your operating system. There are also Hard drive viruses too. If you remember the name(s) look them up on internet for severity level.
