No if external speakers work that means that the sound card is absolutely fine>
now let me tell u the computer itself doesnt have any in built speakers>
either u connect external speakers or the monitor that u use should have speakers built with it> then u connect the monitor to the computer then also use a thin sound cable from the monitor to the back of the computer on the green port

TheWhy is there no sound on my Gateway computer is at 100 volume ?????


If you are running windows on your computer then first you should check for an icon in the lower right corner of your desktop that looks like a picture of a speaker. If it has a red circle around it with a red line through it then your speakers are muted. Simply click the icon and select the un-mute option. What this looks like depends on the version of Windows you are running. It may be another picture of a speaker with a red line through it. or a checkbox with the word mute next to it.. If your sound is not muted you can also check whether your external speakers are set as the default sound output device from here. Also you need to find out if your speakers are plugged into the sound output jack on your sound card. If you are using speakers that plug into the back of your computer then you have to make sure they are plugged in to the correct port/jack on the sound-card. If none of this makes any sense to you maybe your grandson knows if he made any changes to the settings on your computer or if he unplugged anything from the back. Check with him. If you are still not getting your sound from your comuter come back with the results of the previous instructions and we will try again.

I dont have sound in my pc.i dont know where to fix my problem


If you sue external speakers or headphones, follow these instructions. If you have a notebook computer & are using the onboard speakers, skip to the *Windows section below.

You can start by checking your speakers, if any. Make sure they are powered on and functional. You may also want to test there speakers on a different computer just to make sure.

If the speakers work on a different computer but YOURS still does not have sound, try a known-working set of headphones. Make sure the jack is seated correctly as it may be loose.

*Windows:
Check the volume controls on in Windows. If windows does not have any volume controls, then chances are, the sound drivers are not installed. Check your computer manual to find out what model it is, then visit the manufacturer's website to download the appropriate drivers and software for the sound card.

Note that if you have used external speakers or headphones anytime before this issue started, you may have to re-plug the device & unplug it again & allow Windows to detect that it's unplugged (for HD-capable audio devices in Windows Vista or 7).

If you do have HD audio in Windows Vista or 7, right-click on the volume control in the notification tray on the bottom-right corner of your screen and select "Playback devices"...

... then make sure you choose the appropriate output device (whatever it is that you actually use: Speakers, headphones, HDTV output, etc).

Sir my delln5010 laptop internal speakers are not functioning , yesterday when i was listening to music it suddenly stops and after it was not functioning


Hi sir,
How can you say that it is the internal speaker that is defective? Have you tried another sound output, like headset or external speakers? If you have, and it works then the problem is definitely the speakers. You will need to have it serviced/replaced. If even the external speakers do not dork, then the problem is the sound card which is embedded on the motherboard. That means you will need to have the motherboard replaced.
But before anything else, try to check the sound playback if it is properly set to default. Sometimes we may have installed an application or clicked on something that changes the default output of our speakers. Check it first and hopefully it fixes it. Make sure that you have the right default sound output.

Replace your speakers if they are external by plugging in some headphones or something. If this does not resolve the issue look to the sound card in the computer.

Download and reinstall all sound card drivers for your computer/sound card. If this does not fix the issue, look to replacing the sound card.

The only way that you can check whether it's a bad sound card or simply a bad set of speakers would be to connect an external speaker on your computer. If the sounds work properly with external speakers then it's just an issue with the internal speakers on your computer. You can then have it fixed.

Can't hear voice of singer on speakers, more of an echo sound


Hello Shemon
Well, there is 2 option here, 1) your sound speakers are not connected corretly or in the right slots on the sound card.
2) your sound card, (internal or external) you have to use the mixer on software to put the right channels for the music you heard. try configuring in control panel, in multimedia devices, the speakers. for 5.1 system, or 2 way speakers or 3
try again
