Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No Sound I have went in and checked all my settings My speaker works, All the settings are correct in the volume controls. I went into windows media player. All the settings in audio are good. I went into my sonar home studio 6 and everything is correct. I ran a test on the system on all inside sound devices and the card itself and it says everything is running successfully. I am bewildered... All I did was unplug my system and move my work space to the other part of the room and re- plugged everything back in. and Walla, no sound. I took the speakers to my wifes laptop and the speakers are fine. The only problem I had before was having to restart the computor for the sound to activate. Plus I even tried to do a restore and still nothing. I have everything plugged in. This is totally odd. Have you ever come across this. Sure could use your expertice. Thanks Jimmy

    Everthing Is working fine. The only problem is that the system speakers has reverb coming out of it. I can record with no problem in my sonar but my effects are not highlighting in my sonar, and the same reverb that is coming through the system is on the sonar. How do I activate the effects and get the reverb off the computor audio. Sorry to be a pain, If you know how I can change this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again Jimmy and Katy

    We have the effects problem fixed but we are still getting an echo out of the speakers when using the microphone. Can you help?

Carefully plug back the minijack for the speaker at the out or spk,
normally the sound card has three ports 1. for MIC 2. LINE IN 3.OUT (SPK) - SPEAKER.
carefully plug the minijack for the speaker into the third one - OUT (SPK) - SPEAKER.
in pluging it in, first put on a media clip on the windows media player and carefully plug in the minijack for the speaker and surely you will hear sound.

Sound (volume) of media player is at maximum but still very soft.


Go to your volume control via Control Panel or double click on speaker icon on task bar and check sound settings and computer volume or check your speaker's volume. Otherwise your speaker at fault.

Cant find correct sockets for speakers


There are usually several small holes in the connection board on the back of the desktop computer. The makers inscribe a small icon next to each hole to describe what they are for....sound in, sound out, record, etc.
I can never interpret what the icons mean, so I just plug the speaker wire into each hole until I get sound.

Be sure to have sound activated (via the software) on the computer before doing this. If you have the sound muted or worse yet, have no sound driver installed, you won't get sound no matter what port/hole you connect your speakers to.

The loudspeaker of my pc does not have sound the rest of options are working properly the sound valume and the icons shows without problem


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers

Have an emachines e550 does not play sound


You need to go to "control panel, than to "system properties", than to "device manager", ( than to "hardware" if you are using windows XP)

Click on "sound". If you do not see any "red X's" than your sound drivers are working fine.

After that, check your sound cord and power cord. Verify your sound is not muted or turned down.

Speakers are plugged in correctly, lights on but still no sound


Check your output jack again and make sure its on the green jack
and also check your speaker wires, if okay then check this;

For Windows XP;
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Sounds and Audio Devices
  3. On the Volume tab under "Device volume" check that sound is NOT muted
  4. Adjust volume control
  5. Check "Speaker Setup" under "Speaker settings" under the "Advanced" button
For Vista:
  1. Control Panel
  2. Sounds
  3. Select Speakers then properties
  4. Make sure device is enabled
  5. Test sound
  6. Adjust volume controls
Under Device Manager make sure that under your sound card that you dont have a yellow exclamation. Yellow exclamation indicates you need to install the correct driver.

I can't hear voices when i play a dvd on my computer, just background sounds. i've tried many different dvd players (windows media, apple, etc) and have also checked my settings for mono or stereo speakers...


You should also check your DVD playback software and make sure that you have it set for desktop/laptop speakers and NOT for something like 5.1 or 7.1 surround etc.

REALTEK REMOVED MY WINDOWS SOUNDS!!


Solution:

best sol: go to start button ----->click RUN----->Type devmgmt.msc in Text Box -----> 

              Device Manager windows appears , click on Sound, video and game controllers(+), 
              if you see "Realtek AC97 drivers"(if they are visible...) then we can make sure that sound                     drivers are loaded in ur system, otherwise you have load it again.....


                                                          or

i) my best advice would be, dont mess up with installing, reinstalling, uninstalling sound drivers rather try   to format or reload your OS again(Windows XP) and then install drivers.

ii)  try to check volume on your speakers, volume in windows or system , volume in media players sometimes they may set to mute of no volume.......

iii) try to check all sound physcial connection that run from your computer to speakers, including power connections, cable connection ....or just remove and replace them(reseating...)

iv) try connecting a headset to your sound port, sometimes your subwoofers or speakers may fail.....



Thanking You
