Sound not coming out of speakers

My speakers won't play any sound, the device seems to have disappeared somewhere else in my system. When I troubleshoot I get "the device is working properly" yet when I try to play a sound manually, it says there is an error. I have Manhattan (finest quality computer products). Please help....

Just remove the cord from CPu...the sound cord and re-plug it and try the option line out or line in...
otherwise simple way is that...check wheter there is sound installed in Control panel under the add or remove program tab....

Re: sound not coming out of speakers

Hi Katrinka
Happy Holidays
well, you don't loose your sound, you loose your sound card setup and driver, you need to reinstall the audio card in another slot PCI, ( if is a external sound card) and install again the sound card drivers. If is internal sound, onboard audio, you need to go into BIOS and disable, and reenable the audio card, and reinstall the drivers. it should work

When i play music, the sound would come out from one speaker only. the audio jack seems to be fine, but do not know what is wrong. my model in logitec LS21

Try going to control panel,audio,settings.Make sure your speakers are set to 5.1 surround sound.

Next if there is software for these speakers or your audio device be sure it is also set for surround sound.

My speakers won't play any sounds when hooked up to the computer. I hooked it up to my ipod and it played

im not sure i understand what won't means????????
if you are having problems with your sound
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Speakers are plugged in properly but won't work

Hi Rachelle,

First of all, make sure that the sound is not accidentally muted.

If the sounds seem to play, it means that your speaker cables are faulty or have some kind of break in them. Or, your speakers or the electronics inside them developed some kind of fault.

Unplug the speakers and the speaker cables and test them on another computer. If they work fine on another computer, the problem could be your sound drivers. You could also test the sounds, using a headphone in place of the speakers. If you can hear the sounds fine with the headphones, the problem is with the speakers or the cables.

This may be less likely since the sounds seem to play, but it's still possible that your sound driver is incorrect or not the one meant for your sound card.

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and under the "Sound, video and game controllers", see that the sound driver is listed.

Double click the item in that list that contains the word "audio device" in its name. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the laptop manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, sound still can't be heard, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,

Sound goes out & speakers "disappear" from computer prefs panel

I would open it up (assuming it's a desktop pc not a laptop), and make sure the sound card (if it's an expansion card and not built-in to the motherboard), is properly seated (all the way in) in the expansion slot.

Hi, My speakers won't work on my "Vista" laptop. I have made 3 trips to bestbuy. "it's 20 miles round trip." The geek guy got them working,when I play DVD movie. befor they worked on...

Your Majorgeek seems to have been a Minorgeek. When you purchase external speakers to use with your laptop, you must configure your laptop for them. Since your system appears to have worked before you tried to use external speakers, I doubt that you have a problem with your sound device driver. Still,
go to control panel,and check device manager to see if you have any problems. If you have a problem flagged, let me know. If not, click on Hardware and Sound, then on Sound, and see how your laptop speakers are configured. Majorgeek should have turned off your internal laptop speakers and configured them for your external speakers. If they didn't, that likely explains your problem. Configure them and test the sound there.

If you need to use your laptop speakers (say you take your laptop somewhere without your external speakers) you will need to reconfigure your sound to the laptop speakers whenever you need to use them. Let me know if this solved your problem.
