Please check if you have drivers installed for your sound device and if your sound device is working fine. please try following steps, go to start--run--type devmgmt.msc--device manager window will open-- check if u see any yellow mark in front of sound devices

even if you dont see any yellow mark. please go on drivers and download page on hp website. please put your model number in there. If you need any help please let me know i can send you the link for this. download sound device drivers. most of the time HP use realtek ac97 or realtek high defination drivers. it could be different one too. if you are unable to get it from HP website you can download it from realtek.com too
last step : if other steps does't work :
go to start--run--type services.msc ---go to window audio -- if service is stopped for some reason please start it manually by pressing start

Good luck !!

Does hp pavilion a6230n desktop require external speakers?


Yes it does! Most desk top units do need external speakers. Your computer has integrated audio on the motherboard and a speaker output jack.

External speakers won't work on HP T5570e Thin Client


Try to use earphones, plug them in to phone audio connector....
try if it works..... if so, disconnect them and plug speakers.... and try again.... if doesn't work, go to audio advanced setup and check if speakers are not muted, or set up voicevolume level is too low. Play with that setup....

Also some computers can turn on or off speakers in Bios.

If problem will not be solved, try to use USB speakers

If the Internal speakers are working fine that means your Sound card and settings are fine. Just check the Cable, pin and the port you are plugging it into. Or else try connecting a headset on the sound card port to diagnose clearly.

External speakers don't work but internal speaker works fine.


Try your speakers on another system to make sure speakers are working.

Make sure volume control on PC is not set on mute.

Make sure onboard sound is enabled in BIOS

Try re-installing the sound card driver.

If all this fails and you have a spare slot on your PC just purchase a new sound card for about $10.00 or so.

You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.
