Speakers are plugged in properly but won't work


Hi Rachelle,

First of all, make sure that the sound is not accidentally muted.

If the sounds seem to play, it means that your speaker cables are faulty or have some kind of break in them. Or, your speakers or the electronics inside them developed some kind of fault.

Unplug the speakers and the speaker cables and test them on another computer. If they work fine on another computer, the problem could be your sound drivers. You could also test the sounds, using a headphone in place of the speakers. If you can hear the sounds fine with the headphones, the problem is with the speakers or the cables.

This may be less likely since the sounds seem to play, but it's still possible that your sound driver is incorrect or not the one meant for your sound card.

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and under the "Sound, video and game controllers", see that the sound driver is listed.

Double click the item in that list that contains the word "audio device" in its name. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the laptop manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, sound still can't be heard, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Sound goes out & speakers "disappear" from computer prefs panel


I would open it up (assuming it's a desktop pc not a laptop), and make sure the sound card (if it's an expansion card and not built-in to the motherboard), is properly seated (all the way in) in the expansion slot.

A8N SLI Deluxe Sound device/driver not working.


Have you tried using microsoft system restore to roll back your computer to when your friend did the dirty deed? To use it, go to start> all programs> accessories> system tools> system restore. If it hasn't been too long since you got it back, you might be able to recover your system very easily using system restore, but do it right now, because the longer you wait, the more likely it is that the repair record has disappeared.

I am unable to get speakers working.


Hi,

There is small logic to resolve or to narrow down the Audio issue.

Let me explain.

First, try to play any audio file and observe if is giving any error message or it seems to playing without sound.

If it gives any error message like "No Audio/Media device installed or found", then the audio driver is not installed in the computer or the Windows Audio serviceis stopped.

If it seems to be playing without sound, then somewhere it might be muted or Sound level might be lowered.

If you are sure that all settings are okay and not Muted, then you have to check with another speakers or headphones.

If another speakers works, then the issue is with the ols speakers.

Please get back to me if you need more information on this issue.

Hi, My speakers won't work on my "Vista" laptop. I have made 3 trips to bestbuy. "it's 20 miles round trip." The geek guy got them working,when I play DVD movie. befor they worked on...


Your Majorgeek seems to have been a Minorgeek. When you purchase external speakers to use with your laptop, you must configure your laptop for them. Since your system appears to have worked before you tried to use external speakers, I doubt that you have a problem with your sound device driver. Still,
go to control panel,and check device manager to see if you have any problems. If you have a problem flagged, let me know. If not, click on Hardware and Sound, then on Sound, and see how your laptop speakers are configured. Majorgeek should have turned off your internal laptop speakers and configured them for your external speakers. If they didn't, that likely explains your problem. Configure them and test the sound there.

If you need to use your laptop speakers (say you take your laptop somewhere without your external speakers) you will need to reconfigure your sound to the laptop speakers whenever you need to use them. Let me know if this solved your problem.
