First, shut down the computer. Next, you will need to locate an unused expansion slot and then determine which type it is. Most newer PC's have "PCI" and "PCI express" slots (there are others). See the image below to help you identify the slots in your PC.

Choose a sound card that will fit one of these unused slots. Read the directions with the sound card. Some will have you install software first - others want the card installed first. Install the card into the slot and secure in slot with screw or clamp used by your PC and software in the order instructed.

You can also install a USB sound card instead of an internal type. This is required if you do not have an available slot or if you are not comfortable opening the PC. Most PCs with sound cards built into the motherboard will automatically be disabled when a second card is introduced to the computer - USB type or otherwise. If yours does not, you may have to disable it in the BIOS or physically remove to old sound card installed in one of the expansion slots.

Good luck!

Based on the computer you posted, you may have picked up a newer standard sound card (PCI Express x1) that will not fit in your PC. You'll need to pick up an old PCI sound card if any location nearby still carries those.

My laptop fell a couple of days ago and since then there's no sound.


If it works but you get no sound, you should thank almighty that miracle happened. Most laptops never "survive" a drop..
Normally laptops have audio integrated to motherboard, so there is nothing servicable for ordinary users.
Guess your solution might be to use an external USB audio card.
Your internal speakers won't work buy you'll be able to listen through extenal speakers or a headphone

That can either be a software or hardware problem. Please check BIOS and Sound card drivers to see if the front Headphone and mic jack are enabled. (right click computer ->properties-> device manager) or start programs -> realtek (depending on sound card)

Was it ever working before and do the plug in the back work for your computer?

Where on the tv do u plug in headphones?I hve a sanyo tv DP32640


Get an adapter: the one you need depends on the headphone type. If you have the standard IPod/computer headphones with a 3.5 mm plug, get a 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 male plugs). Then plug the RCA plugs into the audio out of the TV and the headphones into the 3.5 mm end.

The TV's Audio out is between the Composite Video IN (Video 1) and the PC input.

If you want to have a longer cable, get the 3.5 mm F to RCA stereo (2 Female ends) adapter. Then connect a stereo audio cable to the TV audio out and the RCA side of the adapter and the headphones to the 3.5 mm port.

Make sure that the TV outputs to the external speakers (some tvs do this automatically when external speakers are plugged in). Menu > Sound

I hope this helps.

Logitech speakers :(


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I feel uncomfortable cutting the 3 plugs, splicing them together and soldering to just one plug. What I have in mind is to use 3 barrel jacks (use stereo, the image is for a mono), splice them together and connect a single 3.5 mm plug, homemade splitter.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Bose 3-2-1 to a computer?


If I understand the question right are you trying to hear sound from your computer through your bose system? If you are then you need to hook a 1/8 mm headphone jack style cable on one end to the headphone jack on computer and on the other end of the cable you need a standard red and white rca type connection that hooks to back of bose system for sound. This cable is called a mini to rca stereo cable the pin connection for the computer has 2 little black bands around the plug there are 2 bands for 2 channel stereo sound.
