Are the speakers plugged into the correct jack (audio out, not line in)? Check if the speaker cable is damaged and try replacing it if the wire is not fixed. If the speakers are self-powered, check if the transformer is warm (using power). If it is cold, look to see if the specs are given - you may be able to find a universal power supply with the right voltage and amperage at a shop like Radio Shack.

If the speaker wire is fixed, you may be able to open up the speakers and desolder the wire and solder in a new one. However, on low-end speakers, the fix is takes more time than the speakers are worth.

I hope this helps.

Floppy disk drive not detected.


It sounds as if you have a registry error. try to go to device manager and uninstall the drive. Turn your computer off and restart and see if Windows detects it automatically

No sound


You are missing a sound driver for your computer, please check in your "device manager" by right clicking on "my computer", select properties then "device manager" and see if there are any "exclamation marks in yellow" under sounds. If there are, go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer and search for the driver.... Hope this works! good luck!! p.s I know this sounds a simple suggestion, but the sound is not muted is it? check in the bottom right hand corner of the taskbar :)

Audio/volume problem


First, go to control panel - > Audio devices, then right-click any empty spot on the sound device, and show disabled or disconnected devices. If "Speakers" shows up, right-click and choose set as default (or something similiar). If this does not work, just reinstall your audio drivers. Right-click my computer -> Properties -> Hardware - > Device manager - > Sound, then find the sound cards manufacturer name, and right-click an press uninstall.

Sounds was lost


look up your motherboard model on the asus website and uninstall your sound drivers... all of them even those installed by windows itself from the device manager then install the driver from the asus website.
Check the services manager to be sure that the windowsaudio service is running and set to automatic also go to the sounds and audio devices icon under control panel and make sure you have a mixing device installed and your volume is not muted on your default device.

I was having a similar issue. My volume button worked fine muting and unmuting the volume, the light just stayed red either way.

I went into Device Manager, then expanded the Sound, Video and Game Controller options, I rolled back the driver and it was an instant fix for me :)

Sound problem


Couple of thoughts:
1) is mute on?
2) is the volume turned too low?

- assuming you have XP for the following -

3) if you open the control panel and go to 'sounds and audio devices', make sure the volume is 25-50%. Click advanced button and put all volume sliders at 25-50%. Make sure none of the 'mute' boxes are checked.
4) Right-click 'My Computer' and click 'manage'. From the list at the left, click 'Device Manager'. On the list at the right, is there any items under 'sound, video, and game controllers' that have a yellow exclamation or red x on them? If so, you'll likely need to reinstall the audio drivers.
