Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

There is no sound from my computer? Even when I plug in speakers to the back of the tower there is no sound. Or when I plug in headphones to the headphone jack there is no sound. and I don't know if it's because I have no sound card. Because I don't know where that's at in the computer nor do i know how it looks like or how to locate it. And if it isn't the sound card I don't what else there is that could be causing my problem.

Ok lets see if we can do some of the easy stuff first.


First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

Open volume control.

If the volume contol on your computer is greyed out then you need to check the hardware from the control panel.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Click PROERTIES

Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing
(nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

If you have any exclamation marks by any hardware you need to sort that out. (maybe drivers first)

How do i hook up logitech speakers #z313 to my desktop i need a diagram


Phone jack on woofer goes into computer tower (should be color coded green) and power cable on woofer plugs into 120VAC. Speaker phone jack plugs into back of woofer. The speaker cable has an on-off switch and volume control as well as a phone jack for your headset.

Z313 no sound


Phone plug on subwoofer plugs into phone jack on back of tower! Plug and jack are color coded green. If you plug into wrong jack you get no sound or intermittent sound. Also speaker cables have an on-off swith so make sure you are switched "on" or you will not get sound.

How to i connect my bose companion 2speakers to my computer and get sound


hi, first Identify what computer you have. Is It A Mac or PC?

If it is PC
-------------
There should be 2 small 3.5mm coloured sockets on the back,front (or both ) of the main box (tower/desktop unit). You should find that they are coloured Green and Red. Green is for sound output (Headphones/speakers or hifi) and the Red is for sound input or Recording. Used for things like microphones. Some will accept line sources such as mixers and Ipods pr cassette players, but please check your sound manager, mixer settings in your opperating system to make your you have an adjustable input setting for Mic and Line input attenuation as not all do and you may end up with a distorted mess. You may also find there is a small diagram of headphones or a microphone to indicate sound "in" and "out" ports.

If you have a mac
-------------------------

Appart fom me being envious :-) there are two sockets. On laptop types, on the side or on the tower types on the front,back or both. They have a diagram of a microphone and headphones. Hadphones is for audio output to headphones, speakers, hifi, dj mixer. The Microphone is a sound input. Please read above for microphone port usage. Hopefully this answers your question. Please also bear in mind that if you have no sound once plugged in, you may need to adjust the audio properties in the system in the system and/or program you may be using

No sound from this monitor. I have everything plugged in , volume icon is turned all the way, mute is off, adjusted speaker levels, etc on my desktop.


Firstly,

You need to check if the green cable from the computer tower is blugged into the back of the monitor (The cable looks the same at both the ends) this is for the output to come through the monitor.

If that is plugged in and if not working, Try a headphone on the tower and check if the sound is coming from the headphone, If yes, You will have to adjust the volume on the monitor or the speaker of the monitor might have gone bad. If there is no sound coming in, Then the problem is with the tower and not the monitor.

Sound still appear at speaker even when headphone was installed


Hello Again,

When you Plug in HeadPhones into the Laptop the Sound Playing should automatically Bi-Pass the Speakers and go Straight to the Headphones

-Unless there is a Faulty Input for the Speaker/ Headphone, Try Pushing in the Headphones More to see if the Speakers Turn Off

Hope this Works --P3NGYJ03
