Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.

YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.

Cassette deck high pitched noise when playing


Sometimes this is caused by the record circuit being activated due to some kind of faulty switch. At other times it's caused by a fault on the pre-amp circuit. Possibly in the power supply to it. Perhaps a faulty capacitor?

HOW DO I CHANGE HOLD RINGING MUSIC?


The music is external to the phone system. In the back room or a closet somewhere, there's a dark blue and black cabinet that has a port that's marked MOH. It will go to some kind of box or computer that supplies the music. It may have a model or phone number on it. You change the music by buying or recording new MP3 files to play.

I have no sound on my computer-emachine T3095


The type of speakers you choose for yourself have several factors that come into play:
your location (does your sound have a volume limit such as a noise ordinance in an apartment complex)
What are they being used for (music, games, movies, work, voip chat)
Your music genre preference (heavier bass means you will want an actual bass)
sound quality (are you an audiophile or does sound quality not truly matter to you.)

I got a decent pair of 5.1 surround sound speakers for just under 100$ by logitech, but a buddy of mine purchased a 300 dollar set that shakes his room when he plays FPSs

Static noise coming out of speakers


What sort of computer do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Many laptops have this problem and it is quite widespread in laptops. The crackling or humming noise could be a result of interference from the mains power signal.

If it's a laptop, try running it on battery alone (take out the mains power cord). My laptop has this kind of noise in speakers when running on mains electrical supply, but it goes away like magic when I run it on battery.

A more long-term solution is to buy a 'Ground Loop Isolator' and insert it between your computer and the speakers/earphones. They are quite cheap and you could get it for under £10. It removes all static noise and you'll hear crystal clear sound.

Not playing music


It happened to me once before. So I formatted it threw the program that came with the device and then I copied my music files once again while the program was working. After that everything worked just fine. Hope it helps!!
