No sound out of speakers


(a) Check your audio hardware in Device Manager. A conflict might've resulted in the audio hardware failing.
(b) Check the Volume Mixer in the System Tray. The volume might be down to 0 or it might be muted.
(c) Try putting a pair of headphones in the headphone jack to see if audio works at all. If it doesn't work with headphones, you can assume it isn't the speakers themselves and might be audio device and/or volume related.
(d) When all else fails, try uninstalling the audio hardware in Device Manager, then reboot the PC and force Windows to reinstall the device. That fixes a lot of problems like this.

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

Where can i find the sound on my laptop,i can't hear nothing on my lap top


Most generally, audio problems on laptops are not hardware issues to begin with, but problems with the software that controls the audio components.
Check the ObviousBefore delving into repair solutions, there is the possibility you can't hear audio from your laptop due to basic settings that have been changed. Check the volume level. If your laptop has physical buttons to control audio, make sure the mute button is off and the volume is turned up. Check the volume control on your operating system to make sure the slider corresponds to your button settings. Physical buttons on your laptop may stop working for a number of reasons, so be sure to confirm your software audio settings using the audio controls found in your operating system. Also, make sure nothing is plugged into the headphone jack. Headphones or any other audio device plugged into the headphone jack will mute your laptop speakers.
Reinstall the DriverA driver is a program that controls the hardware of your computer. Rule out file corruption of the audio device driver on your laptop by reinstalling the driver. This can be accomplished by locating the device in your operating system control panel and uninstalling the driver. When you reboot your computer, the operating system will search for available drivers for your audio device and install them.
Upgrade the DriverHardware manufacturers for devices on your computer frequently update drivers to resolve issues discovered after the original drivers were released. These updates could contain fixes to the very problem you have encountered that prevents the audio device from working properly. Just as you located your audio device to re-install the driver, use the device manager in your operating system to identify the specific sound device used by your laptop. Go to that manufacturer's website and locate the latest driver for this device. Download the most recent driver release and install it on your computer.
Check the Headphone JackThe most common point of failure in laptop audio hardware is the jack that connects your headphones or external speakers to your laptop. When this jack fails, it could mute the sound to your internal speakers as well, but more commonly it affects only the audio heard when you try to plug in your headphones. If you suspect the headphone jack is the problem, you should take your laptop to an authorized repair center for service. Depending on your model, you may have to replace a single inexpensive component or your entire computer main circuit board to remedy the problem.

There's no audio in my computer


If you are using speakers on a desktop computer, the first thing to try is to test your speakers on a different computer. If they still don't work, then it's time to replace them. If they do, then there a few things to do.

You would first have to test the speakers on a different audio port & see if that makes a difference. If it still doesn't work, the next few steps will also apply if you are using a notebook.

Check to make sure that the volume is all the way up and NOT set to mute.

rictutero_18.jpg

After making any adjustments to the volume, try playing any media file & see if the media player volume is also correctly set (cranked up, NOT muted).

(*) In the event that it comes up with an error, read it: it might say something about not having a sound device installed. If it does, then you will have to either download the audio drivers from the Manufacturer's website OR re-install it from the drivers CD that came with your computer/motherboard; if not, see below.

If you have Windows Vista or Seven with either HD audio or HDMI-capable display adapter, right-click on the volume icon near the system clock and choose Playback Devices.

rictutero_19.jpg

Something like this should come up:

rictutero_20.jpg

Make sure to select the CORRECT DEVICE. If your computer is connected to an HDTV, choose HDMI. If it's a notebook computer, choose Digital Output. Otherwise, select SPEAKERS as seen above.

If all else fails, you will have to uninstall then re-install the sound drivers.
In Windows 7 or Vista, click on start & type "Device Manager" in the Start Search box and click on the Device Manager icon that appears in the results list

rictutero_21.jpg

For Windows XP, Click on Start -> Control Panel -> System.
The System Properties window pops up; click on the "Hardware" tab then click on "Device Manager"

rictutero_22.jpg

In the Device Manager window, open the Sound, video and game controllers.
Right-click on your audio device and choose "Uninstall"

rictutero_23.jpg

When prompted, restart your computer. It should work after that. If it does not, it will provide an error message that will determine the actual cause of the problem. You may end up downloading the drivers as detailed in the (*) section above.

If the drivers will NOT install and says there is no compatible hardware, then the audio device has stopped working & will need to be replaced. Any other error would pertain to the operating system and would be a completely different issue.

Sound and audio dont work on my computer windous xp


You just installed this right? Or if it stopped working that is a differant issue.

If you just installed it XP tries to use one of its drivers for the device. They work for most things but the ones that won;t are usually sound and sometimes network. So the fix is to go to your computer or motherboard website and go to the download pages and get the audio driver for that model of hardware. Run that and you should have noise.

If this stopped working you may have to reload the drivers, or check settings for something that has turned off the volume or muted the output. It is possible the hardware has failed but thats fairly uncommon.
