No, the audio is part of the motherboard on most every laptop I've ever seen. There are many different ways that audio can be muted or lost, and I would suggest that first you try removing your speakers' drver. On your desktop, if you right-click on My Computer, select Properties, then the Hardware tab, you'll see a Device Manager button (on Windows XP, I assume). Select that, and look for any exclamation points (highlighted in yellow). If there are any, right click on the device that is highlighted, and select Uninstall. Re-boot the computer, and it should re-install the device with the problem solved. If it has the same highlight, you may need to update the driver.

Tried to play a game on one xbox but wont work on one but will work on another why one xbox can read the game other wont but have played the game before

Sometimes one drive might have a weaker laser than another or it may be aligned slightly different. Perhaps one is older or has been jostled around more. This is why some XBox units are more "sensitive" to scratched discs than others.

No picture no sound loud humming sound for a short period when you turn it on than a orange light flashing at bottom where the blue light is when you turn it on.

AV cables reversed perhaps. Sounds like VIDEO (Yellow, Green, Blue or Red) cable is plugged into the AUDIO section. Perhaps you have switched the RED (Left audio) cable plugged into the RED (Component) Video cables. This would account for the loud buzz and since the set isn't getting an image it goes into standby mode. Just a thought.

I have no sound on my computer. How can I correct this problem? Mitch


your Presario 5000 series must have a S/N (serial number) on it . What is it --so that i can determine if there are any issues with peripheral conflicts.
what OS are you running ?

have you gone to the DEVICE MANAGER to see if there is an issue ? perhaps resinstalling the sound drives may help ?

let me know so i can help you .

Sound through headphones only.

Try the speakers on another computer, to see if they work at all. If they do, then the problem is the audio-interface on your computer (or DVD-player, or home-stereo system).

Sound still not coming from my computer

Hi admak,
Sometimes installing from the software's setup.exe just isn't enough. Please try installing from within the device manager. Here is how to do this.
1. Remember where in you're PC you stored the downloaded drive.
2. If you have My Computer icon on you're desktop. Right click it once & slide to & left click Properties. Click the hardware tab. Than click the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, audio and game controller. Find the yellow ! point. Right click on it once & left click update. Windows hardware wizard will open.
Click the circle, No not at this time & click Next. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button.
(Click the Browes button). Find the folder you downloaded the driver software in to. Open that folder. Choosing this method allows you to install you're software. Once you click on the correct folder For you're OS, you will notice the OK buton will slightely high light. Click OK & you're driver software should install. Please restart you're PC & test you're sound.

Have more questions, feel free to ask.

Sound in right speaker only

Do you have stereo headphones available? If so, try plugging the headphones into the computer. If both headphone speakers work then the problem is either in the monitor or the audio cable. If only the right headphone speaker works, then the problem is in the computer....probably a bent or broken contact in the audio output jack, or perhaps an incorrectly placed sound jumper on the motherboard.

Try to find another sound jack...for example, if you're using the sound jack on the rear there another one on the front of the computer?

Are you using the correct type of stereo sound cable? There should be three metal electrical contacts on the sound connector....a metal tip, a separate metal ring, and the metal sleeve. If there is only a metal tip and a metal sleeve with no ring...then you're using a "mono" cable that will only support one speaker.

If the cable and computer are ok, then your monitor probably has a problem with it's left speaker. You'll need to take it to a qualified computer or tv repair technician to track down the exact cause and repair it.

hi, i had a problem with my sony unit that might be similar to yours (worth checking anyway). If the input is good and the output is missing or not there, If you can disconnect the output from the unit then check for an output from the unit . Sometime you have to remove a unit from the circuit and then check it out. If this is O.K., you have something in the rest of the circuit loading it down. But at this point you know this part is working O.K. You might find your answer somewhere down the rest of the circuit. hope this will help.
