Well, try this.
Ensure speakers are connected to the correct port. Usually the green one on your sound card. Then --
Open Control Panel, Device Manager.
Expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers
Right Click your audio device and select Properties.
Does it say, THIS DEVICE IS WORKING PROPERLY in the Device Status box? If not,
Click the Driver Tab and select Update Driver.
If yes, Go to Device Manager, Sound
On the Playback Tab, is there an Audio Device listed and selected? Is it the correct one?
If yes, select the Sounds Tab. Select a Sound Scheme.
You should now have sound. If not, recheck your connections. If all is well, replace your sound card.

Hi,I'd say if your up and running and the system keeps running for more then 10 min's.No the cpu is most likely still good.The problem is that when the system was crashing it lost some files,getting all the file links back can be very tedious,I'd recommend formatting the hard drive and reinstalling all your app's.Save all you can before the format as you will lose everything thats on the hard drive.Hope this has been helpfull plesae rate!!

If the headphone is working,
and you are connecting a compatible pc speaker to the same green port at the back panel of pc,
and if the connecting cable is not faulty,
speaker should work.

Make sure speaker is powered on
Also check the same speaker with another pc if it works.

After format PC My sound device not working

Firstly check the volume is not low or muted on both windows and the speakers. In windows click the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, check the volume is turned up. Then click mixer or advanced and check that all volumes are turned up.
If using a laptop, check that the hotkey control for volume is on. You will see an audio icon on one of your ‘F’ keys, hold the Fn button located near the ctrl and press the volume function key.
Next open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.
If you are still having issues the sound card may be faulty, this is usually integrated into the motherboard. In a desktop PC you could buy a new PCI soundcard if you have a spare PCI slot in your machine.
You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

Phonejack on pc is not working

Are you plugging the phones into the right socket (green on modern PCs)? If you have only one socket and your speaker system is already occupying it then you won't get anything of course.

" Error loading operating system "

This is not an easy one. But to start,when you install an OS, you needed to delete the drive when you where at the install screen of windows,which you did not post which one. Then after you install an OS
you need to install the chiposet drivers for the motherboard so that it can work. Then the graph drivers,sound drivers,lan drivers. If you do not install the drivers for the hardware that is on the Mobo
windows will try and use generic drivers which are junk.

So you are going to download the drivers for all the things I said. Now when you try and install and you are at the screen that ask to install windows, look down and pick delete the partition than pick which ever letter it ask for and pick yes, now you will see to create new partition, just hit enter because
at the box on the bottom of screen has the full size of the hard drive in it, unless you need to make another partition. Now make sure that C- new raw -- is highlighted and hit enter to install windows to your hard drive, now you get- format NTFS , do not format quick.

This is the best way to install a OS on a clean hard drive. Hope you get it installed ok and all the drivers.

You didn't recover your CD burning program adequately. Oddlly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. Those programs are worth updating. Find out what burning software you have-- I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek an upload at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades. Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check).
Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external.. you might find that your internal speakers are switched off.
