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.

There are 2 volume controls on the audio output in windows 7. one is the system volume the other is the device volume. make sure that they are both at full and then control the sound volume on your speakers.

2.1 SPEAKERS NO SOUND. CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE & CANNOT ADJUST SPEAKER VOLUME.HAVE NEVER HAD SPEAKERS HOOKED UP BEFORE.


> CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE

That's your problem. It could be:

* the audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard is "disabled" -- Windows cannot use it

* there is *NO* audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard -- Windows cannot use non-existent hardware.

* Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for the integrated audio-device.

* you have an add-in PCI audio-device, and Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for this hardware.

Do the speakers work if the output from an iPod is connected to the input-jack on the speakers?

Do the speakers work if connected to some other computer (laptop or desktop) ?

Saadddd.no sound????


Are these built in speakers? If so, check the speaker drivers and the application that control the speaker volume etc to see if it is actually muted.
If they are external, check the power source.

We can not here our sound out of speaker or our computer and it a dell


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

No sound from external speakers with toshiba dynadock


if using XP, go to start control panel , sound and audio devices.Under the audio tab make sure the C Media CM106 sound device is selected under sound playback. Then under the volume tab set the volume somewhere in the middle or at the top if you don;t have active speakers . Then Under Speaker settings advanced, make sure the speaker setup is set to Laptop Stereo speakers. Also make sure the speaker volumes are up on the speaker volume button. click ok. If no result check that the cm106 sound decvice was cemented in as I saw it dissaper when I thought i had slected it. I think the key thing here is the device and the laptop speakers setting.

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.

No sound output


Check the following: 1. Volume Control on the media player 2. Volume control on the operating system 3. Volume control on the speaker, AND the power 4. Check the speaker plug, is it correctly inserted to output/speaker port of audio card? 5. Check your audio setting in BIOS, is it correctly set and recognize by the operating system?
I provide general answer to general questions, if you could be more specific (like type of OS, type of motherboard, media player software, etc.) I can provide more specific answer.
