Why sound is not installing in my computer


Argghhh!...you need to configure your sound driver to work through the correct hardware you wish to use! (The best driver(s) for that require installation (or, reinstallation), if necessary.)

Are you using the onboard motherboard ports? HDMI-cable digital sound pass through? A PCI or PCI-EX sound card? USB speaker or dongle sound circuitry?

USB uses completely separate sound software and configuration control. It's "codec" is totally different and separate from other sound circuitry drivers. Sometimes, USB PC speakers merely use USB for power--not signal. Drivers and mixers for the relevant onboard or analog card output port then still serve.

Cables connected correctly? Jacks on your stereo or TV working correctly? Very rarely cables are defective or worn out.

Microsoft Windows--right?


Not getting sound is frustrating and bedeviling at times--you likely already succeeded, though. You're sound hardware likely is OK--that's rarely defective or broken.

Sound driver software configuration likely has a "Test" feature in some menu--when configuration is correct, invoking that will pump tone through each speaker--right, then left (then satellite speaker and sub). Perhaps more than one set of configuration settings are relevant, too. Make certain that the configuration settings you need are made visible in your mixer configuration, as well. (That's not always a "given.")



Know which sound system you're using--find then which drivers and configuration you need!


AMD Linux tips: The AMD HDMI driver for passthrough requires the binary "non-free" driver from AMD--open source drivers currently won't pass through HDMI signals. Enable the "non-free" repository. That's the way AMD desires it. They currently won't cooperate with the community on the open source HDMI sound driver (AMD won't yet provide source code--something upon which the community insists before they will collaborate directly on creating drivers--reluctantly, they will assent now, though, to allowing AMD (and others) to create proprietary binaries for our use--the community won't directly support them, though). Video passthrough likely will work nominally, though--providing video sans sound....

Another Linux sound tip--you need the correct "backend," codec, and mixer software for the sound software used--gstreamer, phonon, Pulse, ALSA, OSS, Jack, etc. Often, this proves necessary for initialization, enabling, and configuration in the first place. (Perhaps a simple "check" in a box is all that's needed--you may need to "tinker" in order make such a simpleton solution visible and usable, though.) The situation changes over time. Pulse is the default now--ALSA may serve up better, more usable mixers than the comically overly-simplified ones provided for Pulse....

Why have 3 out of 5 speakers on my PC stopped producing sound even after configuring and updating drivers??


Sounds like a configuration problem. See this... http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/224
Also, visit Control Panel/Sound, select your Default Device, and click "Configure" to verify that the configuration is set correctly.

Echo through speakers


Unintended reverberation, or "echoing," from your computer speakers is a common problem that can arise from improper setup of your audio properties.


Resetting all of your audio information to default will correct this problem, allowing you another chance to strike a good balance to satisfy your audio tastes.


This can be accomplished by accessing the Sounds menu in your operating system.



Select the "Start" menu from the bottom-left corner of your screen, and click on "Control Panel." Find the "hardware and Sound" button and click to select.


Click on the sound icon and select the third tab labeled "Sounds" in the window that appears. A list of sounds will appear, beginning with "Asterisk." Click on a sound to highlight and select test.

Listen to hear if the echoing problem occurs.

If it does, you need to configure your speakers or check to see if it is a third-party issue.


Select the first tab labeled "Playback" from the same window. Right-click on the "Speakers" icon. Click on "Configure Speakers" from the top of the list.


Choose a setup from the list that appears and select test to test different sound configurations for the speakers.

Listen to decipher if one configuration has less echo than another. If so, choose the speaker configuration without the echo to fix the problem.


However, if none of the configurations remove the echo, you need to attempt to troubleshoot the issue from "Safe Mode."


Turn on your computer if it is off or restart your computer. Continuously press the "F8" key until the "Advance Boot Options" screen appears.


Use your arrow keys to navigate the screen, pressing down until you have highlighted the "Safe Mode" option. Hit "Enter" to select. Wait for the drivers to load.


Log on from the "Administrator" account. Test the sounds again, and if the echo does not occur, the cause is a third-party driver or service.


hope this helps

I was messing with the sound settings and now every sound or music that comes out of the speakers sound like chipmunks (high pitch voice) even the even sounds weird.. And I dont remember or know how to fix...


Right-click the desktop and select Personalization then click Sounds and change the Sound Scheme to non,that is for windows 7.

For XP Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel and then select "Sounds and Audio Devices"

Now click on the "Sounds" tab as shown and select the "Start Windows" sound also as shown.
Where it says "Windows XP Start up" change this to "None" and you will be OK

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window click on the Sounds (tab).
3. You will see a box with a list of items one being Asterisk.
4. Click on Asterisk, or any item in that box, and then click Test.
5. You should hear audio coming from your system.
6. If the clip was not long enough select another item, and then click Test.
7. Determine whether or not the distorted audio is present.

Configure the speakers

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
2. In the Sound window right-click your Speakers and select Configure Speakers.
3. Follow the on-screen setup, and Test the available configurations.
4. Identify whether or not one configuration appears to have less of an "echo" than others.
5. If the issue is resolved by modifying the configuration then you do not need to do anything further.




These fixes only work for windows and not any third party software.So if you have a sound card,you will have to use the app for it.

Yes there has to be a configuration for the 5.4 surround sound... look if the hardware came with a CD to update the sound driver. or Check if the its correctly configured. on the control panel then click Sound, then depending what windows you have have to lookk for the configuration or properties area and configure as 5.0 or sorround etc.

Speaker Trouble


you must configure your notebook to works with it.
enter in the sound configuration (Control panel->sound)
there you will see speaker setup below, click advanced and choose the right configuration for your sound system. default will be two speakers or headset speaker.

also check if you dont need to configure the software that comes with your sound board, sometimes you must configure it manually.

also check the sound board manual and recheck cable connections, sometimes you must configure sound board connectors via software to work with more than 2 speakers.

hope it helps.
