Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

3 Answers

My Emachine is only 2-3 yr's old now & I have never had sound. It was the cheapest one & on sale. I must have chose one that did not have a sound board. I can not put in a sound board by myself & don't have the money. Do I have to buy a new tower?

You may find that the driver is missing for the soundcard, also a sound card is much cheaper than a tower, much cheaper. Also check the volume settings in the control panel.(click start,control panel, sound/sond and other audio devices) you can also check there to see if the sound card is installed using the device manager in the control panel.
If the card is there, right click on it in device manager, click the drivers tab and click update driver, or roll back driver( reinstalls the previous driver)

Generally, all systems come with a sound card, not all come with speakers however. Or, the speakers make not be configured properly.
On the back of the tower there should be 3 or 5 colored jacks Pink green blue for 3 adittionally black and yellow if there are five. Most low end systems come with a pair of speakers. They should be plugged into the green jack on the tower and should have a seperate power connection. Normally, when turned on the speakers will have an LED on to indicate the speakers have power.
Last but not least, if you have speakers and they are connected and configured properly, go to control panel, Sound an Audio devices, make sure the sound card and speakers are set as primary audio device and in the volume control, make sure the sound is not muted.

Are you sure there is no onbaord sound it should look like microphone or headphone socket holes. If it does then you are needing the correct driver. Open the tower and check what motherboard you ahve then post again for the correct driver.

If there is no sound onboard then it is very simple to install a pci soundcard anf they are very cheap. I certainly wouldn't go buying a new tower for just sound. Google on installing a pci card and you will see how easy it actually is or ask a young friend they know heaps about computers.

Depending on your market, it sounds like all of the other analogue channels have been terminated (not your son's fault) in order to provide stronger HD signals. You may need to run to wallmart and get that $50 decoder box.
