    @- multimedia audio controller-device not configured correctly. When you hit reinstall, can't find it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With your indulgence, pls verify that it is indeed the built-in speakers of the Norcent that is the issue. Temporarily plug in to the computer a pair of headphones or even an old external computer speakers. If sound, then the monitor speakers are verified, if likewise static, then it is a computer issue.

Let's try the easy one's first:

  • check/replace the cable;
  • try other ports to plug it in at the computer;
  • determine if the sound device/driver for Norcent shows up in your Device Manager;
  • determine if on Sound Property in COntrol Panel, the Norcent is selected as the default device;
  • you may want to update the firmware and driver available here.

Would appreciate a postback for any updates on any development(s) (or even the lack of any). Pls include what Operating System you are running and if the Norcent is using USB connectors or standard cables. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Can't get the built in webcam to work on my computer


well....the Webcam has it's own connection to the PC, (typically a USB cable,) but the sound will come out of your speakers.....so if you have your speakers built into your monitor, then yes, there needs to be a 2nd cable from the monitor to the back of the PC. It should have a headphone jack at each end; there will be only one place on the monitor it will fit. On the back of the PC, there should be a small round pale-green connection to plug-in near the USB ports, (unless you have added your own separate sound card, then it should go there.)


If the video is not working, then check if it is plugged into the EXACT same USB port. You do not note what OS you're using....but usually I recommend a device be removed from the device manager, then rebooted several times before attempting to re-install it.

A450N needs new monitor - what monitor specs are required?


Any monitor will do unless you are trying to get one with the built in speakers that you have. Just make sure the monitor has the same type of connection that you currently have (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc).

I have an hp 2011x monitor. How do I connect earphones for sound ?


If you are asking about where to connect the earphones to the monitor, you can't. As far as I can determine this model monitor does not have an earphone jack nor built in speakers.
This is a great HD monitor, but you will have to plug the earphones into the jack (green plug) on the front (and/or back) of the computer to get the sound.

Why no sound from my speakers with Dell Dimension 2400, even though it's equipped for sound? Speakers worked fine plugged into Compaq.


Please try other speakers to make sure that it is in fact the computer and not the speaker port itself. If other speakers work, then it is most likely a driver problem. Try to find the drivers for your speakers and install them, restart, and reconnect your speakers. Good luck!

No sound through external speakers


Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Trying to add speakers


The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??

Starlogic monitor - no sound


Did you plug in a sound input into your monitor? It will be a separate wire from the video input.

If it has a 3.5 mm stereo input jack then it probably has speakers, and you should connect that jack to the green headphone jack on your PC. If it has no input jack then it probably has no speakers.

Of course, the sound input might be included in the VGA cable, in which case that would divide near the PC with a green jack-plug on the end. Again, plug that into the green socket on your PC.

What is the green plug at the back of the monitor that connects to the green plug between the pink and blue port at the back of the tower panel on a Compaq Presario is it the sound?


the pink is for a microphone and the blue is for a "line in" (much like a microphone). the Green plug is for your speakers. your monitor would only have this plug if it has built on speakers.

Cannot get any sound from my Dimension 3100


Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.

Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.

If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.
