Begin by visiting windows update and see if the custom update offers you any hardware drivers for your system. Then please follow the steps in this excellent tutorial to locate and install new drivers for your sound card. If your system was purchased from a major manufacturer, you will most likely be able to download the required drivers from their support site online.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Audio does not work on my notebook


you will have to go to the website to download drivers for your audio card. If you are running Windows they may have audio drivers. Go to website of the makers of your computer for drivers. Check the volume first. If this doesn't work then consider a new sound card and install it.

When I try to play an audio file on my computer, it says that it seems that no sound device is installed or working on my computer. What's a sound device and how can I solve this problem ?


a sound device is a dedicated board the fits in a free PCI slot(inside the PC) and produces all of the sounds once connected to a set of speakers, hifi unit,some newer PC's come with built in sound cards

not all cards are the same quality some are standard stereo and some are full theatre quality(dolby,THX etc)
so its wise to find a solution for your needs as many aspects of newer cards may never be needed

maybe you have a sound card in your system and have not yet installed drivers if you right click on my computer(on desktop) and use the properties in the menu,you will see a new box ,goto the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER tab
click the + next to sound,video,gamecontrollers

if u see any mention of an audio device right clickit and select UPDATE DRIVER

but remember a sound card must be connected to speakers or a hifi unit to produce the sound

How does Logitech X-540 speakers connect to a laptop?


You connect the green cable from the subs (the green one of the three, the other two being black and yellow) to where your headphones or speakers go into your laptop. Then you make sure the matrix button is activated on the x-540. This will make sound come from all of the speakers and it will use the sub, i.e. virtual surround sound.

To do it properly without using the matrix mode and trying to enable actual surrond sound (with centre satellie being mostly vocal, front two being instrumental/music, and back two being sound effects) then you need to buy an external sound card for your laptop that supports 5.1. I'd recommend the creative x-fi external usb, but only if you have xp. If you have vista, forget about getting an external sound card that supports real 5.1 for now because there aren't really any good and truly compatible ones.

Hey sori ive lost my sounds system on my computers


Friend there are several possibillities to this problem and we'll discuss it one by one.
The first possible problem is that your operating system might be damaged by a virus that is why your sound system doesn't work. The solution for this problem is to have an updated anti-virus program on your computer and clean your computer with this anti-virus program. After you have done this procedure, you have to install a software that is compatible with your sound system or if you have a sound card on your computer use the software that is packaged along with your purchased sound card have it installed. After doing this procedure try to connect your sound system to the output of your computer usually there are holes or terminal in your computer that is exactly suitable to your sound system's jack and make sure that you connect to the output line. If this doesn't work install a media player to your computer and repeat those procedures mentioned above. In installing those software it is easy just follow the instructions and read carefully the images and characters presented by your computer screen.
Thanks! I hope i've solved your problem

Dell Inpiron 1420 having Speaker Problem, I have checked Drivers,and sound card installation but didnt find any problem with all that. Appreciate if some one can guied me as how can I fix that problem.


Some PC's have 2 audio outs, one in front and one in back. Often they are switcheable, as in my Shuttle xPC. If it is a sound card, try another PCI slot. If it is integrated, do a chipset driver update from the chipset maker, like Nvidia or ATI, Intel, etc.
