Hi sonfil55,

Do you know if you have the correct audio drivers installed? Go to your Control Panel, then System, and select the Hardware tab and then Device Manager. Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers. If you see anything in that list with a yellow exclamation point then you have a problem with your sound card (could be software).

The standard beep you're hearing generally appears when the system doesn't have the sound card installed properly and the built-in speaker takes over. Therefore, my guess is that there is a problem with the audio driver.

If you can provide the make and model of your computer I can direct you to the appropriate audio file drivers.

Ben

Why my headset not working/realtek?


Do the speakers work? Maybe you have the headset plugged into the wrong Jack. Maybe you have the headset on Mute. If the speakers work, unplug where the speakers go into the computer's port and plug the headset into that same port and see if you hear anything. If not, maybe your headset is bad.

3. Re install the audio drivers. LINK
4. If steps 1-3 don't work, then take your speaker to your friend's computer and see if it works there? if yes then something is wrong in your computer system, if no, then something is wrong in those devices.
Refer to this image below. From your speaker the 3.5mm jack should be plugged at back of I/O ports LINE OUT.

Dimension 4700 my headphones work fine but i cant


Are you have the headphones and speakers both pluged in? When you plug in headphones the speakers get muted. You need to change your sound settings back to your sound card if you use usb headphones. The plug on the front of the 4700 also automatically mutes the speakers.

I dont hear nothing but u can tell the speaker r on


Your going to want to check that the cable is plugged all the way in to the sound jack on your computer and if that doesn't work then go into your sound control and make sure that nothing is muted. If that is not the problem then you need to purchase a new sound card.

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

Simply no sound from PC


Check if you have plugged in the stereo pin to the right port on the PC.
Open sound control (in control panel) and check if the both speaker(main volume) and the wave volume sliders are not set to the lowest.

Make sure your mute is not on, your volume is turned up, your speakers are plugged into the correct port, and the sound drivers are installed for your sound device.
  • Turning the mute on and off and volume up
  1. Down by the clock there is something that looks like a little grey speaker. If you left-click does, is the Mute check box, checked?
  2. Make sure the volume bar is up. You should hear a "beep" sound when you click and move the slider up and down. This signifies the volume.
  • Speaker Port
  1. Check that the speakers of your PC are plugged into the correct port. On most motherboards and sound cards, the correct port for the front left and right speakers are usually color coded as a "light green".
  2. Ensure the speakers are plugged into this port.
  • Make sure the drivers for your sound device are installed
  1. Go to Start -> Control Panel
  2. Double-click on "System" (without quotes)
  3. Select the "Hardware" tab (without quotes)
  4. Click the "Device Manager" button (without quotes)
  5. If you see something that mentions sound device and it has a yellow question mark or yellow exclamation mark next to it, the drivers are not installed correctly or there are errors with the device.
  • If the above steps do not work
  1. If the above steps do not work, consider having your PC professional checked out as there are several other things that MAY be wrong with the PC and diagnosing these issues via the internet would be near impossible.
I hope this helps you resolve your problem.
