type beepand hit enter, you will hear the sound,, It can be used for anything else than system alerts :)

No sound at all emitted through the speakers even though i see the spectral display of sound on the desktop player indicating that music is playing.

Do your speakers require power? If so are they powered? You can tell just by hearing static/noise when you disconnect the speakers connector and plug it back in.

If they are not powered, are you sure you are plugged into the correct port on the PC? It will have 2 half circles with an arrow pointing outward.

If none of the above work, try plugging the speakers into something else to see if they work, like a CD player, or cell phone (if you have a new one with RCA output). This will check and see if the speakers are actually working or not.

Have you tried some external powered speakers or even some headphones?
The problem may just be a dead speaker in your case or even a loose or misplaced jumper wire from the speaker to the motherboard.
Good luck, hope this helps. Post back if you're still stuck.

Your computer with your speaker is under warranty. Have your pc and your speaker check and replace by your reseller. Doing anything with your pc right now will make your warranty VOID.

Sound on HP pavilion Slimline s05110uk

Nope in some cases computers have internal speakers but not a very good source four audio some times your monitor will have inboard speakers if that's the case there will be a green conection coming from the back of your monitor that will be hooked up to your computer if and of course your computer will have to have a sound card for any sound to come out other then all that I have stated u will need a set of external pc speakers

High pitched sound with flashes from power button

Check you have seated the memory properly in the slot and that no other cards or components nearby have been dislodged in some way. The PC is beeping as its unable to get past its basic power on check due to something wrong with the motherboard. Did you change any other configuration at the same time?

There should be a way of resetting the BIOS which might solve this. If you have the motehrboard manual look up how to clear the BIOS by removing a jumper (little plastic switch thing) which clears the PCs basic configuration. It should be on the motherboard somewhere near the battery usually. This might clear the error but if not you'll just have to get it looked at by someone in person as the motherboard may have been damaged.

Crackling Speakers


That because maybe due to your itunes player which the installation got error..please try another player other than Itune or play it in windows media player or some other player which you think good player.

Or try reinstall your player or update it.

if this not resolve the issue, then verify the connection of your sound card maybe got grounded to other components making the sound crackle..Or you may try attached a grounding wire from your stuff directed to the ground or attached in any metal that is connected to the ground to eliminate noise.

please tell me what ever result for further analysis

Hi I Have a V2 Premier Computer And We Just Recently Got it Fixed But We've Lost our sound. Each time i try and acess our Sound thing It Says no Audio! I Highly doubt our computer is on mute! May I please...

I am guessing "Sound thing" is the volume control in the system tray (lower right corner).

If it is saying "No audio mixer" or "No audio device selected" then either one or two possibilities come to mind.

1. The shop that fixed your computer did not install the sound card properly (or left it out).

2. The sound drivers have not been installed or got corrupted.

To see if it is the first one or the second one, we need to get to Device Manager.
For XP, right click My Computer and select properties and click the hardware tab.
For Vista go to Control panel and click the System icon.

Click the button called Device Manager and see if there is anything with a yellow highlighted exclamation point. It likely will say something about unknown hardware or device. There might even be a name on the device that is a clue that it is a sound card.

If you do not see anything like that and there is no device in the category for Sound Video and Game controllers, option one is your choice. Take it back to the shop.

If you do see something that indicates it needs a driver visit the support webpage for your computer. Here is the URL:
Select your model and choose sound to search for the driver.

Once you have a speaker icon in the system tray, if you still have sound problems trouble shoot the speakers.

Make sure the speakers have electric power connected and the power light is on for at least

one speaker. Make sure the volume on the speaker control is at least half way up.

Make sure your volume in Windows is at least halfway up and not muted.

Unplug the speaker jack and re-plug it firmly into the hole you just removed it from. Test

for sound.

If no sound, unplug and try another hole of the same size on the back of the computer and

test for sound. Continue testing until you have tried every hole the jack will fit into. One of

them will very likely work.

Scratching (static) noise coming from computer speakers

I foudn this in anther forum:
I have an ASUS motherboard P5E3 Premium. The audio that came with it was the Sound Max audio. I also noticed abnormal sounds coming from the speakers. They included sounds during hard drive activity and also with mouse movement. They were not loud but noticable. I searched all over the web but didn't find the answer. I stumbled across the fix myself. I also have vista-64. In the sound control panel > speaker properties > levels... there is a pc beep slide bar. I noticed that if it is disabled then the abnormal sound went away completely. Problem solved. Hope this helps.
