Hello virac80,

Does your HP desktop have a built in speaker or is it connected to an external speaker system?

You could also check if the audio jack is properly connected to the audio port at the back end of the desktop itself.

Just to be really sure, you can go to your Device Manager & check if your sound card is working fine.

For you to get to Device Manager, click on the Start Menu button, then drag your mouse cursor on top of your My Computer icon, right click that icon then go to Properties.

Choose the Hardware Tab, then choose Device Manager.

Find Sounds, Video & Game controllers. If you don't see any red X mark or exclamation point, everything's okay.

Just double check on your wires if they're all properly plugged in to the correct ports.

I installed a software called Hear on my T420 laptop after a while i uninstalled it but since then i have problem with sound! when i play music i hear the sound from the speakers, it's normal but


Use the SYSTEM RESTORE utility to go back to a certain date that you think is in its perfect condition, say 2 to 5 days ago will do. Everything will be restored except data or work files. Good luck

Put in headphone in computer pull out half hour after and now not hearing any sound from computer


Hi abifedrik,

I see that your headset was working fine on an earlier time when you used it now you mentioned it won't even give out any sound at all.

Have you tried updating your sound drivers of maybe reinstalling the driver for your Audio card on the machine.

Possible that the driver may have kicked Off the system this happens sometimes but not that often.

Check to see if the audio driver is in device manager if it is then try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver.

If it is not detected get a fresh copy of your audio driver try installing hopefully this should fix your concern but if your grt an error installing the aduio driver then something may have gone wrong.

also checked if the headset settings are correct check if it is in Mute.

But to check further with the issue you can do a system restore on the system to an earlier dat or time when you had the Audio working o your Headset.

I hope that this will be helpful.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

I have no sound on my computer


If this problem just happened a couple of days ago and your computer sound is working fine before then you can do a System Restore to bring back previous setting of your computer where the sounds works fine. HOW?

Important: System Restore will delete recent program installed or recent changes you made in your computer depending on your date of restoration.

Follow step below: (Windows 7)

1. Navigateto the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
2. Clickon the System Restore programicon.
3. ClickNext > on the Restoresystem files and settings window.
4. Choosethe restore point that you want to use. Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox tosee more than the most recent restore points.
5. Click Next >.
6. ClickFinish on the Confirm yourrestore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the SystemRestore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programsbefore continuing. Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-systemfiles like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types filesare completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this toolwas to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recoveryprogram instead of System Restore.
7. ClickYes to the Once started,System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
8. SystemRestore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in therestore point you chose in Step 4. Note: The System Restore process could take several minutesas you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings arebeing restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal whencomplete.
9. Immediatelyafter logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that SystemRestore completed successfully.
10. ClickClose.
11. Checkto see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has beencorrected by this System Restore.

ClearChat Pro USB headset asks for driver upon install


  1. (Vista) Confirm your system restore point first. It needs to be prior to what you're going to attempt here. If it has a recent restore point, great, but if not, make a system restore before you do this, in case it doesn't work.
  2. In the Control Panel, click System, Advanced System Settings, click System Protection, and click System Restore.
  3. (Optional) Try updating your usb drivers before trying the final step, reinstalling the Vista Service Pack 2.
  4. Here's how to verify if your USB (drivers) in the Device Manager are up to date.
  5. Open the Control Panel, System, Device Manager.
  6. Open the Universal Serial Bus controllers (usually at the bottom of the device list).
  7. Right-click, on your first USB, Updating Driver Software. It will look for the update or let you know (which may take a bit of time) that it is up to date already. Repeat this process on all the USB devices.
  8. If that doesn't work, try this: plug in your headset, and keep it plugged into the usb.
  9. In your Windows Updates, re-install the Service Pack 2. After Vista reboots your computer and finishes the install, unplug your headset from the USB and then replug it in. What you are likely to see is a Windows message indicating that it sees the software and is installing it (minus the windows pop-up message of "where's the driver disc for it?").
  10. Now the trick is to get the headset to play the microphone through the speakers appropriately!

I don't have any volume on my computer


Have you ever had sound?
is this a new computer?
If new, take it to the repair center.
Is your sound comping from speakers or the Monito or headset?
If you have had sound, use the SYSTEM RESTORE back to a date you had sound.
Keep me posted please.

DSP 500


I have a dsp-400 and have had the same issue intermittently on a laptop. Recently on an HP desktop computer I found setting the device in the Sounds and Audio Device Control panel Voice Tab (and possibly Audio Tab) to reduce the issues with the device ceasing to work. Setting the device from the Sound Icon in the System tray recently only a very temporary fix where the settings reverted to the Sounds and Audio Device Control panel settings in minutes. This is at best an I hope it helps solution as I do not know your specific hardware and software configuration we cannot test a solution.
