Hi im josh may i he lp you? try this; Sound cards range from simple built-in features to elaborate two-piece devices with physical control panels that mount into a 5 1/4-inch drive bay. The basic purpose of sound cards is to allow the user to hear sounds played by the OS and programs, along with music from audio CDs and other audio files, plus sound from DVD and other types of videos. In addition, these allow for voice communication using software such as Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, and Windows Messenger, along with Internet telephone calls, voice-recognition software, and other uses.
Sound Card Removal and Installation Sound cards are physically installed and removed in the same way as any other card using the same interface (PCI or ISA), except that there are likely to be analog audio cables connected to it inside the computer. On a motherboard with onboard sound, there will also be audio connectors. These connectors are for connecting analog audio to optical drives, modems, and other devices. Some of these connectors are polarized, but even if they aren't, the worst that can happen is that the right and left audio channels could be reversed. Figure 8.4 shows the audio connectors on a sound card.

Figure 8.4: A sound card's audio connectors. External Sound Connections Sound cards can vary as to the number and type of external inputs and outputs. The most basic, usually found on motherboards with built-in sound, have three:
Microphone input: This is for a computer microphone, although battery- powered condenser mics usually work in these jacks.
Line input: This is for an external line source such as a cassette deck or CD player's line outputs.
Speaker/headphone output: This is a headphone-level output that can sometimes drive small, non-amplified speakers. They are usually connected to amplified speakers.
A sound card with a built-in amplifier would have full-power speaker outputs, able to drive most non-amplified speakers. More advanced cards have a whole assortment of inputs and outputs. On many cards, the icons that identify each jack are very difficult to see and interpret, especially when you are struggling just to see any part of the back of the computer. Consult the manufacturer's documentation. Figure 8.5 shows sound card jack panels.

Figure 8.5: A sound card jack panels. Now look carefully at Figure 8.5. The concentric arcs represent sound waves. An arrow pointing toward the center indicates a line input, while an arrow pointing away from the center represents a line output. The microphone and speaker icons are more illustrative than are the others.
Diagnosing and Repairing Sound Problems There are a number of steps you can take to correct sound problems. First, make sure the speakers are powered, turned on, and turned up. Make sure all external connections are correct, and that the cables aren't damaged. Run System File Checker (see Chapter 11). Reinstall the sound drivers. Sometimes, you'll have to remove the device in Device Manager, shut down the computer, remove the card, restart the computer and uninstall any programs that came with the sound card, and then shut down the computer again. Then, follow the manufacturer's directions for installing the card, or just reboot and see if Windows will install it correctly. If you have any trouble with resource conflicts, which would be evidenced by instant lockups, go into the BIOS and make sure Plug and Play is enabled.
Selecting a Sound Card A basic sound card is good for most people. High-end models are good for gamers and musicians. Some people like to have surround sound with their computers, so surround sound models are common.

good luck

Have deshtop pavillion a6703w. My sound was there and all of a sudden gone. Just happened last week. I have tried everything the help articles have said to do and nothing works.


Hello,

It would help me with troubleshooting if you could describe some of the steps you have taking to try and resolve this issue. I recommend this for anyone that is trying to have a problem solved.

I would recommend a couple of things to try, and my apologies if you have already tried them.

-Make sure your computer has the newest drivers for your motherboard, sound cards and graphics cards and BIOS.
-If you are using speakers you bought separately from the computer, you may need to install updates software for that as well.
I can help you get started with this step by giving you a link(below) to HP's website where you can download updated drivers.

Click here for HP support

-Make sure Windows is up to date by Clicking the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
-When your computer is booted up, if you look at the bottom right of your desktop, you should have a toolbar(if using Windows). In this tool bar you should have a speaker icon which is for your sound controls. If you right click on this speaker icon, you will get some options and if you click the option "playback devices", It will bring up a window that you can use to manage the sound properties. I would also make sure the sound is not muted which you can do from that same speaker icon.

Your HP computer may still be under warranty. If so, I would also recommend calling HP if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own.

Regards,
G33k

My insignia speakers have no sound since I had my new hard drive put in. How do I get my speakers to work


A very common mistake that people make, is to accidentally connect the speaker cable (one with the green connector pin), to the Line-out or Microphone socket on the back of the computer. Just double-check to make sure, this is not the cause of the problem. Make sure that the connector pin color matches the speaker jack color on the back of the computer.

Also, check whether you can see the speaker icon in your Windows system tray (near the clock). If it has a red cross over it, it's quite possible that your sound card (if you have a separate sound card), was accidentally displaced or pulled out of the card slot. This caused sound from working. (If you never saw the speaker icon in the system tray, you'll need to enable it from the Control Panel 'Sound and audio devices'.)

This youtube video may help you install the card properly:
If the speaker icon has a red cross over it, does it show any error message, if you point over it with the mouse? If yes, then most likely the sound driver is missing or corrupted. You can try updating the drivers, other than with Microsoft update wizard, either by manually downloading the drivers from your computer manufacturer's website, or with an easier method as mentioned below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:
You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which would scan your computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here or directly from this link (copy and paste the link into your browser, if you can't click it).

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.


If, with all of the above, sound doesn't work, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. If your computer doesn't have a separate sound card, try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

I down loade the service pack 1 of vista ,& since then,I am not getting any audio device shown in my lap top.The speaker icon comes with a red cross.Pls advise.rktiwari35@hotmail.com


Try re-installing the sound drivers as a first possible solution. The service pack should not have interfered with your sound.

Post make and model, maybe there is some issue with vista SP1 and sound.

I have a problem with an Acer travelmate 530 no sound output anyone got any ideas


1. check the obvious first:(check... don't assume)
a.everything is plugged in .. if possible test the speaker to make sure they're working
b. is your volume all they way up (or at least not all the way down).
c. click once on the speaker icon on your system tray (where the clock is) make sure you're don't have the sound muted or the volume is all the way down.
d. now double click on the speaker again and check the mixer volume control.. check items like master volume, wave, audio cd and others are not muted or with the volume all they way down.

2. if after doing step 1 everything check out ok you you may have a possible driver problem: note: if you see the speaker icon with a red cross (red cross means there's no driver for your sound controller) you need to check device manager for a possible driver problem, do check even if there's no red cross on the speaker icon as it may be a possible outdate driver (for device manager go to start>run> type devmgmt.msc then enter) and check if you have any ! or ? under sound devices. if you do unstill and reinstall drivers or better yet, download updated drivers from sound card manufacturer.

3. if you got upto step 3.. you may have a faulty sound card, get another sound card and test if it works. (this is unlikely but possible)

No Sound


Good thing that a sound came out of your speakers!
Are you saying you tested the sound with music, ect?
If you did but just that sound came, then you now need to search for some volume control.
You said earlier that you do not have the little speaker icon on the right of the taskbar. try clicking on the little arrow (<) to the left of most of the icons. now look on the extended view of all the icons there. If there is the icon, double-click on it and a small menu should pup up above the icon. Check to see if the even smaller speaker above the link "mixer" shows that sound is currently on. if this has a red cross over it, click the button. You now should be un-muted. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong if your sound doesn't work after this or if you could not find the icon.
Good luck!

Sound problem!


May be too basic, but first : 1. Check whether you have installed speakers in the Speaker Out socket 2. Speakers are powered on properly, try on another system for confirmation if possible. 3. Check whether your Microsoft XP with Service Pack 2 ? If not, install SP2 first and try reloading the drivers. 4. Drivers are available at : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=391284&lang=en Thanks, Rajesh
