It sounds like the headphones shorted out the usb on your system, you might try some speakers that are not usb and see what you come up with,,,also check and make sur your sound isnt muted on the master control for the volume

I dont have sound in my pc.i dont know where to fix my problem


If you sue external speakers or headphones, follow these instructions. If you have a notebook computer & are using the onboard speakers, skip to the *Windows section below.

You can start by checking your speakers, if any. Make sure they are powered on and functional. You may also want to test there speakers on a different computer just to make sure.

If the speakers work on a different computer but YOURS still does not have sound, try a known-working set of headphones. Make sure the jack is seated correctly as it may be loose.

*Windows:
Check the volume controls on in Windows. If windows does not have any volume controls, then chances are, the sound drivers are not installed. Check your computer manual to find out what model it is, then visit the manufacturer's website to download the appropriate drivers and software for the sound card.

Note that if you have used external speakers or headphones anytime before this issue started, you may have to re-plug the device & unplug it again & allow Windows to detect that it's unplugged (for HD-capable audio devices in Windows Vista or 7).

If you do have HD audio in Windows Vista or 7, right-click on the volume control in the notification tray on the bottom-right corner of your screen and select "Playback devices"...

... then make sure you choose the appropriate output device (whatever it is that you actually use: Speakers, headphones, HDTV output, etc).

This article contains tips for resolving sound related issues in Windows XP.
No Sound From all speakers
  • Check that the speakers are powered on.
  • Check that the speakers are connected to the correct ports on the PC. This is particularly important If the customer has both integrated sound and a sound card.
  • If the speakers have a volume control button - ensure that this is turned up.
  • Check that the Windows Audio service is running. If this is not running then many of the subsequent troubleshooting steps will not work. Go to Start->Run and type services.msc. Double cliick on Windows Audio. Select Start if possible and check that the Startup Type is Automatic. Click OK.
  • If the speakers are digital speakers then try forcing the sound card to use digital. Go to Start->Control Panel->Sound and Audio Devices.. On the Volume tab, click the Advanced button in the Device Volume section. In the Volume Control window, below the Play Control Volume slider, click Advanced. If this does not show select Advanced Controls from the Options menu. Select Digital Output Only
  • If possible try an external audio source like a Walkman, CD, or MP3 player (connect the speakers to the headphone jack)
  • Check that the volume control in Windows isn't muted or turned too low. See the screen shots below. Go to Start->Control Panel and double click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

well the reason for it not working is becausethe windows lost the speaker's driver so what you need to do is to re-install the driver of the speaker.

Gigaware microphone 33-124 no sound with Windows XP SP3


Does it show a message like "unknown device" in winXp? then probably it needs an installer in order for a device to work properly, but if its working in the other computers running winxp then probably your own computer you are using have a problem with the usb ports on it. Hope this could help..
