Please check to see if your sound card is installed/enabled, then check to see if the sound files are set to open with that device. Your computer should already have a media player installed (if you're using Windows). Set your music files to open with the media player.

    OK, here's a solution: Click Start, Run. In the empty box, type "services.msc" (without the quote marks!) and hit Enter. Scroll down until you see "Windows Audio" and double-click it. When it opens, there should be a field called "Startup type" -- make sure this is set to "Automatic". Just below that is a field called "Service Status" -- if it says "Stopped", click the "Start" button just below it. Then click "Apply", and then click "OK". You should now have sound.



    Please rate this as the solution, you will have to rate this as solution #1 that I posted earlier. Thank you.

The sound is not good for listening musik, what to do?


Laptop speakers are in general not that good for listening to music.
You can try and configure the sound by clicking the volume icon down right-corner and then your laptop speakers. A window with options such as "bass boosting" and other useful stuff will pop up.

Or go the easy way and buy a pair of headphones.

Tip

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

Sound quality is so poor. cant listen music. volume is too low even with full sound


Normally the sound on the Vostro is lower than the Inspiron series as this is an executive office laptop.
All what can be done is you can download WINAMP and use to increase the equaliser /volume still further.
Also an active power speaker can be connected to the earphone socket to improve the volume to your desired level.

I have a message on my sansa clip that I want to get rid of so that I can continue to listen to my book. I can't listen till this is straightened out. It says synchronize to continue your music...


Audible books are protected, you can copy them into device, but you can't play them (...subscription...appearing ). You must use audible manager to sync audible books.
You should delete audible books that make pop up a message " synchronize to....", otherwise, your device always pops up the message when it meet the audible books.

I have an ASUS A6M laptop and i cannot get any sound


Too many possibilities; can you be more specific, like when you try to play music, does the music "appear" to play, but no sound?
... or .. the music thing gives an error message like: "No sound or audio device..." or "need codec..."
Do videos play, but no sound?

If it worked before:
1. play a video and "un-mute" the sound bar.
2. Go to the "sound" icon in the [Control Panel] and change the volume setting (un-mute)

Please comment....

This thing does not work always says ok to disconnect


When the mp3 player is connected to the computer, the only message it will generally give you is "OK to Disconnect" - this is normal.

Once you disconnect the mp3 player from the computer, then you can find your music, listen to music, etc.

If you are getting the "OK to Disconnect" message when the mp3 player is already disconnected from the computer:

Reset the player first.

If that fails:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.
