Question about E-Machines T5048 (7136) PC Desktop

No Sound on Emachine T5048

I'm not hearing any sound on my Emachine T5048. After "updating" my system from Windows, I'm not able to hear anything.

I have tested the speakers in another PC and they are working correctly. Device Manager is displaying the drivers are working correctly. I also went have already uninstall/reinstalled drivers from Emachine's support site at http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T5048

Nothing seems to be working, any suggestions? Would downloading an updated Chipset driver for BIOS work?

Here are the specs.
Windows XP Media Edition with service pack 3.
Realtek Audio

I installed realtek driver but i hear no sound


OK--first, is it the correct driver for your computer?
Now be sure your speakers are plugged into the green port.
If the speakers are powered, are they turned on?
Check the speaker icon in your system tray--lower right side of the screen. Click on it to see if the sound is too low or maybe muted.
If still no sound, go to the control panel and click on the sound icon. In that window you click on "sounds" and see if you can click on a sound and play it. If the "play" arrow is gray, it means your sound card drivers are not installed. You can also make sure that your speakers are the devices selected to play the sounds.
Another thought? The speakers are bad.

How do i reset my emachine t5048 to factory setting without the windows boot disc?


Some computers will have a recovery partition you can recover from it will prompt you as the computer is booting. Emachines are very low end computers and don't typically have a recovery partition. If you didn't create the recovery disc you will need to order it from Gateway's website as they own emachine.You can order recovery media from https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

You should check your fan isnt clogged up with anything.

No sound on dell dimension 4700c


There can be more than one reason, why the computer can't play any sounds. These are discussed below:

If you have a desktop computer, it may or may not have a separate sound card. But in case of laptops, the sound card is integrated into the motherboard and cannot be removed, so some of the solutions may not apply to laptops. Also, new laptops come with built-in speakers, so the external speakers and cabling problems may not apply here, unless you use external speakers or headphones.

So, where do you start, when you can’t hear any sounds from your computer?

Before we start with the solutions, did you try the simplest solution first? Rebooting or restarting the computer is the simplest solution and should be tried first. If you didn’t already reboot, try it now. The sounds may just work after a reboot.

Can you hear the Windows startup sounds from the computer? If you can hear the Windows startup sounds, the sound card is working fine. If you can’t hear any startup sounds, enable the System Sounds in the Control Panel, if they are disabled. If you aren’t able to enable the system sounds and they are grayed out, you may need to install the sound driver.

Are you trying to play an audio CD, and not getting any sound? If you can hear the System Sounds, but can’t hear anything from the audio CD, even though your audio player software tells that it’s playing the disc, the problem is most likely with the digital cable that goes from the CD/DVD driver to the sound card (or to the motherboard).


One side of this cable goes into the back of the CD/DVD drive and the other goes into the sound card or on to the motherboard (in case of motherboards with built-in sound).

Are the speakers connected to the proper sound port / jack, at the back of the computer? Are they powered ON? External speakers generally have a separate power adapter, which plugs into the wall socket or any other power source. Is the speaker volume control, set to a comfortable level? If not, turn it to the middle position.

If in doubt, test your speakers by connecting them to another sound device like CD/DVD player or a radio/tape player, or any sound source. If you can hear sounds from the speakers, they are fine.

Check that the speaker pin is connected to the green jack on the back of the computer. Also, check that the sound (check speaker icon in the system tray) isn’t muted. Such a simple thing, which can happen accidentally, can confuse some people when they can’t hear sounds from their computers. This can get overlooked because the speaker icon may be lost between many other icons. Click it and un-mute the sound, if it’s muted.

Note: If you can’t see the speaker icon in the system tray, you may need to enable it from the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, double-click “Sound and Audio Devices” and check the box that says “Place volume icon in the taskbar” and click OK.

Try plugging in a pair of headphones in place of the speakers, to check whether you can hear anything. Play a song or music CD or any sound file, which you may have on the computer. If you don’t have one handy, you can run a command to test your sound:

Click the Start button, and then click Run (or Search, in Windows 7 / Vista). Type the following command and then press the Enter key: dxdiag

Click on the ‘Sound’ tab to see the details of your sound card. You can also test your sound card from this tab. Note the name of the sound card and the manufacturer, on a piece of paper.

If you can’t see the name of the sound driver, or aren’t able to hear the sound by using the ‘Test DirectSound’ button, or you get an error, the problem may be with the sound driver. If the sound worked sometime ago and now it isn’t working for some reason, the simplest solution for re-installing the sound driver is to do a System Restore. Restore the system to a date that you know, when your sound worked. Check out the following links for a short tutorial on System Restore

Note: Current documents, files and e-mail are not affected by System Restore. If you get an error like “Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored“, undo the last action by selecting “Undo my last restoration”.

Here’s a youtube video on how to restore a system with System Restore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mU5yqvye57E

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/System-Restore-frequently-asked-questions

If System Restore didn’t help or you get a message that System Restore couldn’t be completed, try the following:

Start the Device Manager (Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc and hit the Enter key). In Device Manager, Click the + sign next to “Sound, video and game controllers”. See that the sound driver that you noted from dxdiag above, is listed.

Doube-click this sound driver. Device Manager should give a status message that the driver is working fine. If the driver isn’t there or if it shows a yellow exclamation mark, shows under other devices, or gives any other kind of status message, reinstall the driver. In any case, it doesn’t harm to uninstall and reinstall the driver.

From this sound driver properties page, you may also click the Troubleshoot button, to open the Sound Troubleshooter in the Windows Help and Support Center.

My sound card is not installed on my computer because i did the recovery. where can i download one? it's a eMachines windows XP T Series T5048


Here's a link to the Emachine support page for your model. Scroll down to audio section and you should be able to download your sound drivers. If the sound still doesn't work after doing this download the chipset drivers and then try downloading the audio drivers again. Sometimes you need the chipset drivers first before the audio drivers will work. http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T5048

I cant get sound thru my speakers due to missing audio devices or programs.


You should just wipe your hard drive clean, then..........

Install Fresh CLEANl Windows (Genuine Microsoft Disc).......Not the Software you got with the emachine......

You can borrow a Windows Disc of the same windows Version and use the License you got..... :)

then update the drivers.......

Never use anything but a REAL windows installation........without any other software (trial, adware, etc......) ALL OF PREMANUFACTURED PCs COME LOADED WITH ****.
