  1. Determine if the sound card is integrated or an expansion card (Usually a Soundblaster) If using an expansion card, the integrated audio must be disabled in the BIOS F2 at boot) If no expansion card, then in integrated audio must be enabled.
  2. Once the sound card has been determined, make sure that the master volume control is not MUTED and the WAVE audio is not MUTED
  3. Download and install the latest sound driver from support.dell.com

My pc is no sound,how can i solved this?


The speakers themselves shouldn't need any sort of software to work properly. They should just plug into the sound card in the back of your computer. If you aren't getting any sound, then it's likely you need to reinstall your sound card drivers.

To identify you sound card, goto Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Sound, Video and Game Controllers. Your sound card will be listed in there. Once you know what sound card you're using, go to the manufacturer's website and reinstall the drivers.

If that doesn't work, try this. Goto Start > Control Panel > Sound > Playback

Your speakers should be listed in here and they should have a checkmark next to them. If it's not next to the one that says Speakers, right-click it and set it to Enable.

I have a HP windows XP sound sysyems nt working though speakers are ok . wht do i do ?


Hey, try connecting a headphone to your computer and check if you get sound through it.If yes then there is some problem with the speakers. If not then either the sound card on the computer is not working or you need to reinstall the driver software for the sound card.

Please rate, if it helps.

I cannot get the sound to work between computer and speaker. Have looked at and tried all software options. Is there something else i can do please


Hi sallianne!

Let me help you with your concern.

STEP 1: Check if the sound card is being detected by clicking on the Start button, then select Run, and type in "devmgmt.msc".

STEP 2: Check the "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" if there are bangs on the devices or if the Sound Card is being detected.

STEP 3: We are trying to figure out if the sound card is being detected or not, because if its detected by your system and there are bangs you need to install the driver for your sound card. Or if its not detected, you might try unplugging the sound card and plugging it back to the computer but if that still doesnt work, you need to replace the sound card.

Problem with sound on acer aspire m1610


Well if your sound card went out then your kind of out of luck, but if you need to get the sound card to work again, like to install it then you need to go to the acer website and download the driver for it.

My hp speakers wont work


Sample testing is usually a firmware built into the monitor amplifier ie the monitor is testing itself. you problem possibly lies with the computer sound system. Tell me more about this. Is it an 'On-board' sound card or separate PCI card. You can determine this by looking at the back of the computer- if all the connectors - sound- PS2 and USB are in the same panel - then it is an on-board system. If the sound is separate in one of the card position then it is a PCI card. The possibility is the sound system needs setting up- check your computer paperwork/manual and utilities disk for Audio drivers. Come back with some answers
