I formatted my PC. Rest parts are working fine except speakers. I cannot hear sound. I know speakers are alright because I checked them. Actually, I lost CD that I got with motherboard. Engineer says that I need to run that CD to get speakers working. Is there any other way to solve this problem? What should I do now instead of buying a new motherboard? MAXTONE 865G/775 is written on motherboard.

Re: Speakers are not working
Hi, Normally you click start then right click My Computer or Computer in Win7, click properties, on the next screen click device manager top left, then you should see an exclamation mark next to the sound sound icon, open this with the + sign, right click the sound card and click update driver, this should then search online, if it doesnt then right click the the sound card again and click uninstall. After youve done this then at the top click ACTION and the SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES, it will then search online for the latest driver, this one will work.

Reasons can be:
1. you have a corrupt driver.in that case uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
2.the device or the driver is not supported by the OS.
3.check whether the speakers are working properly , hold speakers one by one close to your ear while it is on you should hear a hissing sound confirming that they are alright.
4. change the port of the sound card see if that works
5. and if none of the above works it has to be the sound card itself.
think servicing before buying another sound card.
do the headphones work?that means the pre amp is working.
the speaker protection is maybe activated from shorted wires on the back,there should be a click 5 to 7 seconds after turning it on.
that is the relay that connects the speakers.check the speaker a and b switch. people are not aware of this,but alot of amplifiers ADD the a and b speakers,to prevent too low an impedance from parallel wiring.unless there is 4 speakers,no sound.
hi, ok so your speakers are alright, but you dont hear any sound when connected to the computer. 1.this might be due to a driver problem. install the correct driver for your sound system and it will start working. to check if the driver are ok, right click on my computer icon on the desktop and select properties. now go to the hardware tab an and click device manager. a yellow mark will in the sound system category will tell of a device driver or conflict problem. 2. if there is no problem as mentioned above... you can try this go to control panel. click the sound icon and check i the device is muted and volume sliders are adjusted.
