Why doesn't my internal "realtek" sound system have any sound?


Check that the speaker cable is plugged into the GREEN ringed "Speaker" jack (for a normal stereo sound set up). Check that the speaker isn't muted in system tray. Right click the speaker in the system tray. Click Volume Control Options and make sure you have the analog Realtek Audio selected - not any HDMI or Digital output. Open "Control Panel" in Windows. Open "Device Manager" found in the "Hardware and Sound" heading. Locate "Sound, Video.." Make sure there is no small icon over it to indicate that there is a problem. If there is, click the triangle to the left and open "Realtek.." Right click it and select properties. Click the Driver tab and then "Uninstall" If an option to remove files is presented - select it, too. Click OK to uninstall. Reboot if prompted. Allow Windows to find the "new" Realtek hardware and download drivers from Live Update. Sound should be restored. Make sure that you have selected Analog

Tv tuner will ot detect digital signal in windows media center, vista


All US TV signals are now digital, but most TV tuners are like our old TVs - analog. Are you sure your tuner is a DTV tuner? If not, you will need to replace it or get a DTV converter. A DTV converter will not let your computer pick the channel and time though.

But one footnote. Broadcast digital TV is often not the same a cable digital TV. If you get a cable digital signal it is encrypted to the actual serial number of the receiving box. No broadcast DTV converter can do this. This is how the cable company now controls the number of receivers and one has to pay for EVERY set.

My dell optiplex 360 model pc have built in speakers .I installed all the yhe audio drivers and analog drivers but no sound output .In the time of Using media player and video files only the video . No...


The optiplex 360 does come with internal speakers(it's in the spec sheet as optional), we bought them for our entire IT department and they worked fine on XP and vista, but when we put 7 on them, we can't get the internal speaker to work.

I have a HP a705w desktop and I am trying to hook to a TV


You don't say which graphics card (many people change the stock card)

Your best bet is if your card has S-VIDEO out.
Only use a good quality cable as many of the s-video cables are just not up to the job.

There are also VGA to COMPONENT cables about. Experience shows that this does not work as well as should be expected as it too has a pretty high chance of failure to analog tv.

There is a 50/50 chance of it not working with analog. That figure changes dramatically with flat panel tv

I need an adapter for my computer so that I can use all Logitech speakers.


There is no such adapter. What are the four colors of the wires? How old is the computer? What is the model?

HP pc with built-in tv tuner


Have 9, 5 and 13 turned entirely digital as yet, so as to leave you without their signal?

From what you say, the tv tuner in your HP receives analog signals better than or instead of digital signals the stations you can receive may be analog while 9, 5, and 13 may have dispensed with their analog transmitters.

They don't have to until June, since the changeover was delayed from the original February cutoff date by Act of Congress. It is actually easier to receive a digital signal than an equally powered analog equivalent so the fact that your system worked so well with analog signals bodes well for the efficiency of your indoor antenna arrangement, though you may have to replace the possibly analog receiver in your pc with a usb digital thumbdrive like model to continue after the changeover is final.

Here's a tip...if the receiver in your pc resembles a square aluminum tin can, mounted on a PCI card in one of your slots, it is very likely analog and not digital.

Usually these receivers (or actually TUNERS) are heavily sheilded while digital receivers do not require the same amount of sheilding to avoid interference with other components, which is the concept of the big square tin can, that a digital tuner does not require.

I have computor with Norcent LM 965WA monitor. Really liked the fact it had built in speakers. Worked great, now when I plug in the wire from compuitor to monitor, static but no sound. Any suggestions...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With your indulgence, pls verify that it is indeed the built-in speakers of the Norcent that is the issue. Temporarily plug in to the computer a pair of headphones or even an old external computer speakers. If sound, then the monitor speakers are verified, if likewise static, then it is a computer issue.

Let's try the easy one's first:
  • check/replace the cable;
  • try other ports to plug it in at the computer;
  • determine if the sound device/driver for Norcent shows up in your Device Manager;
  • determine if on Sound Property in COntrol Panel, the Norcent is selected as the default device;
  • you may want to update the firmware and driver available here.

Would appreciate a postback for any updates on any development(s) (or even the lack of any). Pls include what Operating System you are running and if the Norcent is using USB connectors or standard cables. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I put some new parts in my pc and knocked the wires for the speakers and dont know where to recconect them to my motherboard?


You'll need to plug it into the Analog Output; you can see a general picture of the back of a computer here. The key is that the icon next to the Analog Output port, with concentric circles and the arrow going out, is the same on every computer, so that's what you need to look for.

My Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers have stopped working. I probably downloaded some other software that overrode the Dell speaker installation. How do I reinstall the Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers?


The speakers are probably fine. What you probably need to do is to reinstall the sound drivers on your dell.

You need the model of your dell pc and go to the dell website and find download and install the sound drivers for your system.

The model of your pc will be needed if any more assistance is needed.
