Make sure the sound/VGA drivers are installed:

Do the following:
1. Go to Start > Run and type: devmgmt.msc than and hit Enter.
2. A screen pops up showing all your devices. (Device Management)
3. Check if your soundcard has a yellow questionmark or a red cross next to it.

In case of question mark:
If your PC is from a brand such as HP or so visit it's vendor's website. When the sound is onboard they should have your card. If you have a sound/vga card that is in an expansion slot visit the website of it's manufacturer. Locate your card there and download drivers (+ additional software). The drivers are usually in the Downloads or Support sections.

In case of red error:
Make sure the hardware is connected properly. If you are certain it is and when it still doesn't work try other drivers (see above). If it still doesn't work, it might not be supported or broken.

I hope this helps you out. Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

Cant get to play music without headphoes


Most modern computers come with internal speakers already installed, especially laptop computers.
These speakers may be sufficient if you are performing typical computer tasks, but when you play computer games, listen to music or watch movies on your computer, you may want louder and more vibrant sound.
You can achieve this by installing external speakers or headphones. These can be connected to your computer through the speaker or USB ports included on your computer.

Plug in the speakers or headphones.
If the speakers or headphones use a stereo plug, insert the plug into the speaker/headphone port normally located on the side or front of your computer.
This port is often color-coded green. If the equipment is connected using USB, locate a free USB port.
Some external speakers will also need to be plugged into a power outlet in the wall or your surge protector.
This may be all you need to do to get the speakers or headphones to work. If they do not, continue to the next step.
Open the audio settings on your computer.
From the Windows Start menu, open the Control Panel. Here you will find audio and sound settings.
Click the heading to see your sound and audio options.
Choose "Manage audio devices" in Windows 7.


Find your Playback device.
In the Playback tab, you can select your speakers and set them as the default for your system.
If you do not see your speakers or headphones, they have not been installed properly. Disconnect and reconnect them to see if it corrects the problem.

Configure your settings.
Select your device from the list and click "Configure" to test your settings.
You can adjust the volume by using the volume slider on your computer's task bar or using external controls on the speakers or headphones.
