    Your drivers for your machine are not installed, go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and you should see some yellow exclamation points next to the Sound Device and Controllers Tab, make sure you report back next to what each one says.

    what program are you using to play the music? Windows Media Player, Winamp, Musicmatch, iTunes, etc.?

    Try using a different program - let me know what happens!

Update/reinstall audio drivers.
To download them go to the website of the manufacturer, and there should be a link to drivers, or a search bar. If you cant find the driver, just post here. Though then we will have to know your sound card model.

Sound is nt coming from speakers?


Do you have two sound cards in your computer now or have you removed or disabled the old sond card?

FYI, looks like in the media player you havent selected the right sound output.

Try this,
1. In Windows Media Payer, Menu bar-> Tools -> Plug-ins -> Options.

2. Go to Device tab and click on Speakers ad the click Proprties button below.

3. Click Advanced

4. Select your new hadrware.(Creative Aspire 5.1)

5. Click Set as default.

6. Click OK, OK OK...

Then restart Windos media player and try again.

-------------
Another thought, make sure you have pluged the jacks right and you speakers are working right.

Good Luck!!!
