If using external wired speakers plug them to the green port on the laptop.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

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)
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.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

I get picture on Viber laptop, but no sound. How do I get speakers to work and where can I find the speakers.


Check to see if you a speaker icon in the lower r/h side of the task-bar down by the clock.
If the icon is not there right click on a blank area of the task-bar and left click 'properties'
Left click 'customize'
Scroll down to 'Volume' and select 'Show icon and notifications "
Click 'OK'
Close the 2 properties pop-ups.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices'
The 'sound' pop up will appear showing whatever you have connected ( speakers or headset etc)
Make sure the speakers are set as default if you have more than one sound device connected.
The speakers should have a green tick (check ) when they are ready to use
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'Open volume mixer"
Check that the volume slider is above 50% and the speakers are not muted (shown as a red no-entry sign on the speaker icons at the bottom of the sliders' If muted click on the slider speaker icon.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices' Put the cursor on the blue graph to the right of the icon, right click and select 'test' All being well the computer speakers will respond.

I lost the sound


FIRST OF ALL CHECK THE SOUND SYMBOL OPTION ON THE SYSTEM TRAY IF IT IS IN MUTE AND ALSO RIGHT CLICK ON THE SOUND SYMBOL TO GO TO THE MIXER TO CHECK IF ANY MUTE OPTION IS CHECKED IF EVERY THING IS OK,THEN THERE MIGHT BE A PROBLEM WITH THE SPEAKERS TO CHECK THAT INSERT A EARPHONE AND TRY TO PLAY A SONG AND SEE IF YOU CAN HEAR IT IF YES AND WITH THE EXTERNAL SPEAKERS WITHOUT THE EARPHONE IS NOT WORKING THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SPEAKERS.
MOST OF ALL THE SPEAKERS COULD BE IN MUTE.

Check it isn't muted. Check it is sent to the speakers. Check the application isn't muted and is playing to the speakers in the mixer. Check the speaker connections etc.

HP dv71020us. Owned the laptop for 13 months and this never happened before. Audio does not come out of speakers until a headphone jack is placed in one of the front holes. When there is something...


Your issue from what I read is a setting issue.
you have your setting in headphone mode from what I gather and you need to place the setting for the sound card in output mode which is in the Windows sound setting.
1.Check the task bar where the speaker icon is ( Windows 7) or Windows XP.
2. Left click here and your volume control will show with a caption of "mixer" at the bottom.
3. Left click this hyper link and it will show you the properties of the speak device.
4. If you see a speak icon on the left >> click it and you will then see a tabs window
with tab label across with "general being 1st.
5. click the "level" tab and you will see the l"line in" microphone etc. They may be muted click the muted sign to enable.
6. then check sound.

In-computer speakers aren't working.


the speaker would have gone bad.If the external speakers connected are working fine,then the sound card is fine.If the system is still under warranty u should get the speakers replaced.Contact dell tech support for that.

The mute wont turn on,on the dell inspiron


Have you tried going into the speaker settings? We'll assume with a new PC you have Vista installed, click the speaker icon on the right side of the tray, and selecting "Mixer" will enable access to volume control for the output devices and for applications.

If no speaker icon is visible To check the volume controls in Windows Vista, click Start and then click Control Panel. Choose Hardware And Sound and then click Adjust System Volume under the Sound section. The Volume Mixer window will open, and you should see volume sliders for Device and Applications. Click and drag the sliders to view the volume level percentages. If the speaker icons show a circle with a red slash, click the icon so the speakers are no longer muted.

Furthermore, you’ll want to double-check all of your master volume and mute settings.
