My desktop has integrated speakers and just recently stopped working, no sound. Cannot figure out why, everything seems in order but no sound. Purchased new from Best Buy, December 2009

Please do the following:
Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and make sure that your settings are set to those speakers. If there are three different options try everyone and see if it works. If this does not work, please make sure you have the right sound driver installaed. You can install the driver's you may need at your provider's website
ie. Dell, Hp, Toshiba, etc...

Hope this solves your problem. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks!

Sounds like feedback. Check your speaker connections at the speaker and the main unit.

Speaker static noise

The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).

Post your results here so we can further assist you.

Hello vatsala,

Try downloading and installing the latest sound drive available for your motherboard. Here is the link.

If that doesn’t work, try using another set of speakers to make sure it’s not your speakers that are bad and if that doesn't work, you may have a bad sound card and will need to put in new sound card.
