Kind of complicated to explain,but go to your pc manufacturer website,search for audio drivers or device.i have fixed that problem before and usually the audio device gets deleted.The device is what the pc uses to send sound to speakers.then make sure drivers are updated.

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Windows 8

I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

Smal display showing me hd and speakers don't work

Scan your PC for viruses.
If still not working format your PC and run any sample song without installing any game or soft as they may contain virus.

My computer had viruses so i got it fixed and now my speakers dont show up on the control panel and dont work with windows media player, how do i install them?

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then reinstall either the sound drivers or the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver

hope this helps

I donot have audio in my computer what i should do?

Check and make sure that you have the drivers installed for your soundcard. If the drivers are installed, check your speakers on another computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer try a different set of speakers on your computer. If the speakers work on another computer then it is either a driver issue or your sound card is bad. You did not specify if it was a desktop or laptop. I assumed it was a desktop. If it is a laptop then the speakers test is next to impossible but you can still try a set of heaphones.

If your speakers are good, your drivers are installed, then try checking for viruses. I have experienced that before. Test for virus, spyware, adware, malware, etc.

Finally if all else fails, reinstall windows and drivers. Make sure you have a backup of your data and a copy of the programs you need to reinstall. Good Luck!

Unable to connect to internet or any program whatsoever

Some viruses do lock themselves to legitimate Windows programs. If they get delete, so do the Windows programs.

Re-installation is your next logical step.

It sounds like you have viral infections. runs from your web browser (I would suggest using Internet Explorer). This is Adaware, it will remove the spyware on your computer. This one needs to be downloaded. Finally, If you want to protect yourself from future viruses/spyware, use Mozilla Firefox ( instead of Internet Explorer-the change is huge.
