I bought a new HP home computer, but I would like to use my previous Monitor which is bigger and is a Dell, so when I changed to my Dell monitor with my HP hard drive, there was no longer any sound coming...


new to you , its very old, and officially retired at HP.com
its 14 years old today. yah, old. last one sold at $30(fleabay)
what ever OS (windows) it runs its not safe on the internet.
windows 2000? or XP?

called legacy now. (means zero support at HP and MS)
no dell monitor stated, endless kinds over 20 years. made.
what makes you think the dell has speakers/ lacking the 3.5mm
phone jack
on it. did you forget to plug the sound cable in?

the hard drive has nothing to do with sound.
one can boot to a LINUX CD and play music all day long.
a fact. same with booting to USB thumb drive.(linux)


why not buy some external speaker, for $10 or at Goodwill(tm)
stores. dirt cheap or heck , upgrade to good sounding speaker
no monitor can ever do that. well.
good luck and next time tell the helper what DELL that is.
the model is on the sticker on the back most times.

Connected to laptop with vista via USB connection to speakers - NO sound


A letter from Altec: E-mail from Altec Lansing explaining how to use the ACS 495 speakers with Windows XP and Vista: "These speakers require no special drivers or software to work properly. At the current time we do not have AMS software or an USB audio device driver compatible with Windows XP or Vista. There are no plans at this time to develop this software. Your speakers will work with Windows XP & Vista. Just make sure you use the audio cable from the back of the subwoofer to the audio or sound out port of your sound card. Do not use the USB cable. Sound does not come through the USB port The USB cable just allows you to use the AMS software. This software gives you some control over some of the sound features. The same functionality of the AMS software can be gotten by using the buttons on the speakers and the volume control software that comes with your Windows system. If you double click the speaker icon from the system tray, that will open this software up. With the USB connector removed or the computer turned off, STEREO or PRO LOGIC modes can be selected by depressing and holding the center control down for approximately three seconds. The mode selected will be indicated by the color of the LED on the front right speaker. When the light glows yellow it is in the STEREO mode. When the light is green it is in the PRO LOGIC mode."

My computer will no longer play music or any kind of noise


Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.

YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.

Check the control panel and see what your default sound device is set for.

Do you have a third party sound card like a sound blaster plugged into here?

Just re installed windows xp on new hard drive, built-in speakers no longer functioning


Visit support.dell.com, click on drivers and downloads, and then click on the service tag option.... enter the service tag from the bottom side of the laptop... it will then display the list of drivers for that laptop.

 

Download and install the audio drivers and any other ones that you need.... let me know if that solves it for you. Make sure they are for your laptop model and operating system.

Some basic questions first: -Are you using the built-in sound card and are your speakers plugged into the green socket? -Did you plug your speakers into another computer to see if they work, if you didn?t how did you test them? -Have you checked the Sounds and audio devices in the control panel? Go to Start, Control Panel, and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure the volume is up and the mute box IS NOT checked. If you?re using Windows XP Click on the Speaker Volume button and make sure the left and right speaker volumes are up. -What program are you trying to use to test the sound volume? Let us know if this solves your problem or if you need some more assistance.
