Does the emachines T3990 have a built in sound card

I Installed a DVD/RW unit and need to find out if the pc I have has a built in soundcard? I am not getting any sound out of the DVD/RW unit.
I have a sound cable that connects to the back of the DVD unit but can't find any type of plug that the other end will go to. Do you have a solution that may help me get sound? I am pretty good with printers/copiers but need to learn alot about my own PC.
Thanks!!

    I get sound out of the CDRW drive that came installed with it from the factory. I do not see a cable from the CDRW other than the flat cable and the power cable.

    Thanks for everyones help, It was a user error. It has a built in sound card and I had the speaker out plugged into the wrong one. It was dark when I plugged it up the first time, what can I say! Thanks anyway.

    Do you have any other drives installed on this computer, if so do you have sound out of them without any audio cables connected

My Emachines el1200-05w is not playing sound, i have already installed the realtek audio manager that was on the emachines website, Still no sound.


Hello. Now these type of computers have been known to have the sound go out on them. What you can do is get a soundcard and install it. Then run your speakers off of the sound card.

I want to know if the power supply i have right now is 450watts can supply all the components below, or do i have to upgrade any? thanks My Specs: 4core dual-SATA2(motherboard) DVD-rom nvidia geforce...


Unless you have problems, your power-supply is totally adequate.
Probably, even a 300W power-supply would be sufficient
(one DVD-ROM, one disk-drive, one video-card).

Emachine et11161-03 no sound from speakers


First check the speakers, plug them into a walkman/discman, and see if you any sound from them. If not then the speakers are bad. If you get sound, turn on a media/music player and check all the holes on the soundcard, maybe its plugged into the wrong one. If still no, check your Audio settings, make sure nothing is muted, and the volumes are all up. Check your sound/audio settings in the control panel, make sure everything is installed, and the drivers are working for your soundcard.

MY SOUND CARD


Hi, you should have the driver CD for soundcard as it is shipped with the new sound card - if not you must download the driver for the soundcard not for the Chipset of the computer. Look at the soundcard - normal the driver manufacturer and model is shown on the "biggest" chip fixed on the soundcard - donwload the driver as shown on the chip of the soundcard from the manufacturer and install. (ensure you select driver for you operating system)

Hope this help.

Soundcard/video card advise for emachines pc.


you can install a PCI vedio card to enhance video quality. a 128mb will do the thing. The integrated sound card you have is good enough, to maximise the sound install good quality speakers with subwooper or boosters
