Question about Compaq Creative Sound Blaster PCI 128 Sound Card

1 Answer

No sound is coming out of my compaq laptop at all.

According to the screen on my compaq laptop, it says that the volume is turned up, but according to the keyboard the sound is turned off

To turn the volume up or down or put it to mute on my laptop is i guess you could say touch screen. The picture for mute is orange which means the sound is turned off, when i press it to turn back on, nothing seems to change, the light stays orange and no sound comes out.

Please help me, i really need to fix this problem.

My Gateway Sound Blaster CT4870 Sound Card seems to be installed and working properly according to device manager in windows but I don't get any sound. where do I find a driver for this sound card that...

Firstly check the volume is not low or muted on both windows and the speakers. In windows click the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, check the volume is turned up. Then click mixer or advanced and check that all volumes are turned up.
If using a laptop, check that the hotkey control for volume is on. You will see an audio icon on one of your ‘F’ keys, hold the Fn button located near the ctrl and press the volume function key.

You can goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem.
Hope this helps,

I get a blank screen when i turn on the monitor

If the monitor continues to have a blank screen when connected to another PC, then the hardware (internal electronic part/s) is having trouble powering up the panel/ccds and it should be replaced/serviced according to the terms of the warranty. I suggest to bring the unit to a service center to properly diagnose & fix the problem. best regards

Compaq presrio c700

According to the manufacturer, that model does not come with built in bluetooth support, in which case, you will need to purchase a seperate USB bluetooth dongle (prices vary from approx £25)
