If there isn't a little green 1/8 inch audio jack for speakers anywhere on your system then you do in fact need a sound card which can be cheap and easy to install. if you do have a sound card already and you just arent seeing volume control then your sound card drivers are probably not installed and to find out drivers you need you need to figure out what sound card you have by physically looking at the card. or you can try running microsoft update in custom mode and you might get lucky and under hardware drivers you might get what you need.

If the computer is the dell in title, then the speakers socket is the green jack , you find one at the back of computer, and one behind the front sliding panel.

If the computer is different from the one in title, then you may need to install an audio card into the computer.

In this case a simple solution may be installing an external audio card, klike the ones below.

SoundWave 7.1 Audio Adapter

USB Audio Adapter 3D Sound 5.1 CH Controller

If instead your computer has the audio jack , but has no sount it may need driver setup.
In that case follow instructions on link below to download and install drivers.

How to double check speaker hook up on asus desktop computer


maybe they have the volume muted. Check to make sure the volume is not muted and that the speakers are plugged into the light green port in the back of the computer.

Make sure the volume on the physical speakers are turned on and turned up. And make sure the volume in the Audio Sound Properties it turned up and not muted.

If you see the speaker megaphone at the bottom right near the time click on it to adjust the properties.

You can click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio properties.

I have surrond sound speakers thats loud but wend


I had an issue like that with one of my dell desktops too. The speakers were very quiet. I turned up the volume on the speakers, turned up the volume in windows. Unisntalled and Reinstalled audio drivers, I eventually assumed that the speakers were just junk. After buying a soundcard (I was originally using onboard sound), I discovered that the speakers were much louder through the soundcard than through the onboard audio.

Change the volume in WMC doesn´t working...


If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.
