Re: sony desktop has no sound

Try to find the volume in your task bar, maybe was set to mute. if not see the volume. go to control panel double click the " audio and sound device" uncheck the mute "box" , same probelm occur.
do this,
Install the correct audio driver, maybe have error on it,
Find the CD/DVD utilities of your computer and the install the audio driver.,
if don,t have CD/DVD utilities tell me the Audio card model number or if the audio is builtin to motherboard tell me the motherboard for me to search the driver for you to download.

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!

I have no sound on my computer-emachine T3095

The type of speakers you choose for yourself have several factors that come into play:
your location (does your sound have a volume limit such as a noise ordinance in an apartment complex)
What are they being used for (music, games, movies, work, voip chat)
Your music genre preference (heavier bass means you will want an actual bass)
sound quality (are you an audiophile or does sound quality not truly matter to you.)

I got a decent pair of 5.1 surround sound speakers for just under 100$ by logitech, but a buddy of mine purchased a 300 dollar set that shakes his room when he plays FPSs

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in

Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

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.

Reinstalling sound driver

Sounds like the sound device in your computer is going out. You can try to pick up a new sound card and that should fix the problem.
