Usually an issue with the jack. The laptop thinks an optical link is plugged in and turns off the analog audio. Clean out the jack. If you want to do it yourself, the good news is, it'snot too hard to open it. Here is an Macbook Air Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Just open it and let it try, clean off any corrosion you can find. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair NYC.

Gateway dx4840-11e. During video can hear music but not actor voices. What to do?


do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc

When i play a movie and use my itunes the sound is choppy do you know what the poblem is because i cant hear anything do i possibly need a sound card ?


If you are viewing/listening on line and it does that but not when you play a DVD or tune from a disk, you have a slow internet connection problem. If it does it when playing a Video/Tune from a disk, download a newer audio driver from your manufacturers web site after downloading the latest Windows update.
Hope that helps.

I cant hear my buddies when using ichat but they can hear me perfectly and clearly.. Also I cant get sound when using quicktime especially with .avi files.


This is easy..
Your buddies need to raise their microphone volume, which may be muted. System preferences, sound, look for the microphone slider and raise it to full.
Quicktime doesn't like AVI's by default, and even when it does work, it usually won't play the sound. There are two solutions.
1. download 'flip4mac' which is a quicktime plugin for playing AVIs (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx)
2. Download VLC, which plays everything, and has the excellent feature of raising the volume to 300% (great for crappy laptop speakers). http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html

Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.

Raspal

My mac volume does not work and programs are running slow.can a mac get a virus


Was it working before? If yes then what was installed on the machine last. If not then have you tried plugging in headphones and check if you can hear anything. Try to qiggle it in the jack itself, blow in air. This might sounds silly but it does work. If still nothing try calling apple and have their technicians have a look at it.

See how you go.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

Cant hear my sound on my laptop


You have just about answered your own problem. If you can hear sound on other computers and also on TV, then the camera is sending out sound. You should be downloading the video to your laptop with a USB cable. Make sure that you use the same cable on your laptop that you used to download on other computers. In the worst case you could get a card reader with USB and remove your memory chip from the camera and load it into the Card reader. That should solve the sound loss. I have also seen a laptop that would make sound when windows opened up but would not play a music CD. You might want to test your laptop with a music cd before you buy anything!
