If Sound Card have been listed in this page, then you system already have sound card installed. If not, please check the enclosed information of your Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 to see if you should installed a sound card. If sound card is a must, then you should install a sound card. Note: if you have already installed sound card but not be listed in "Sound, Video and Game Controller", then go to "Other Devices" to check the list. Portable computer normally have no card sound because they have integrated sound management system.
Step 2: Take a look at all the output devices to see if they have been turned on and plugged in. The three jacks in following picture are for Microphone, input and output respectively. Check whether your output device have been put on mute or not. Check volume control setting.

Sound


Have you ever had sound? If so, when did it stop working? If it stopped around the time that you changed something in your system, like installing new software or hardware, then that's likely the cause.

Did you go to start>programs>control panel. Double-click on "Sound" and verify that nothing is muted and the volume sliders are all turned up?

If you know the last time the sound worked, do a system restore previous to that point. Keep in mind, a system restore will remove any software installations you've done, but it will not delete any files or email. Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Go through the prompts and select a date previous to the time your sound stopped working.

Por que me sale an internal error in the initialization stage


Initialing stage is indication that the computer is undergoing restore to system default. First, at which stage where the computer stops performing restore is indication that disk is either scatched or dusty requiring cleaning. Power shut the computer completely from the shut off button because attempting to press the disk button instantly would cause impact that may damage the restore disk. Power on the computer from the power on button area. Immediately press the disk button to before the computer attempts to capture the media in disk driver. The computer disk driver should pop open immediately to make available the disk. At which point, inspect the restore disk for scratches or dust by simply cleaning with clean tissue paper. Also, observe the disk for compartibility with the computer systems. For example a computer performing on windows XP would least require update restore with disks that are Windows 7. Discontinue restore if realised that the computer is inconpartible to the disk attempting to derive restoration from. If the condition was due to dusty or scratches, simply cleaning the disk should make commenceable the restore process.

    Every time I enter something on my computer, i hear a snapping noise from the speaker, sounds like a "shock" noise any help stopping this


    what do you mean when you say "enter something on your computer"?

    if you lower the volume physically do you hear any sound? if you do it may be physical problem.

    have you tried to reinstall the sound driver. go into device manager, right click on "sound, video and game controllers" and look for audio controller, right click on it and uninstall, then restart your computer and let the computer reinstall the driver again.
    while you are in device mananger look if there's any ? or ! in yellow inthe sound, video and gave controller section. your problem may be related with that ? and ! item. post back with your findings.

    another thing you may want to try after you have attempted the previous solution is to look for an updated driver at the manufacturer website.

    good luck!

    No sound on my computer


    you could try a number of things:

    1. try to go into control panel and look for your sound device under hardware, make sure it's "enabled", and try to update the drivers for your sound card.
    2. go to control panel, click on sound speech and audio devices, then click on adjust system volume, and then check the box that says place volume icon in the taskbar
    3. If neither work try using the system restore feature and restore your computer back to a date where u know that the sound icon was still showing in the taskbar.
