Sounds like your sound card is either not working or doesn't have any drivers installed.

Go into your device manager (right click on my computer, click properties, click hardware tab, click device manager)

Under sound, video and game controllers is there anything that has a ? or ! in yellow beside it? If not, see if your sound card is listed in that section, click properties and make sure the device is enabled.

If it is there, and the device is enabled, try downloading the latest drivers from the manufacturers website.

if that doesn't work, if may be a hardware issue.

Did you check that your pc is having sound drivers installed or not
or they are working good or currupted

here is how you can find out
go to my computer right clik it
select property
go to hardware
select device manager
here in new window you can see all installed devices
find out "sound, video and game controller"
now click + mark on leftside of it
it will drop down the list of available sound/ video devices
if you dont see any sound device then you have to install sound drivers
if you see any sound device but with yellow with it then its installed but not working properly
in that case also you need to install drivers once again

find this out

Tip

How to setup your Sound.


Install the drivers for the sound device. If the sound hardware came with an installation disc, insert the CD into the drive and follow the prompts. If the sound device does not have a disc, contact the manufacturer or download the drivers from the manufacturer's website. To check the system for sound devices, go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "Sound and Audio Devices." The primary sound device will be shown in the top of this window. Step 2 Check the "Audio Devices" properties window for muted volume or the volume bar set to minimum. Either of these will cause the sound to not work. Step 3 Check "Device Manager" for improper settings or problems with the device. Go to "Start," "Control Panel" and "System," then select the "Hardware" tab, then press the "Device Manager" button. A list of hardware will be displayed. Audio devices are under "Sound Video and Game Controllers." The device will be titled the same as it appeared in the "Sound and Audio Devices" window in the "Control Panel." By double clicking on the device, it will display the properties. There is a selection at the bottom of the first tab that will display whether the device is "Enabled" or "Disabled." Any conflicts will also be given in the form of small exclamation marks. Step 4 Check the volume knob on the physical speakers.

Optiplix 780 soun problem


What kind of sound problem? Tell us what is happening?

Do you have the speakers plugged in the right port (light green port)? Have you checked to make sure the speakers are turned on and the volume is up? Have you looked at your Audio/Sound Properties to make sure the volume is up and the sound is not muted? Have you checked the device manager to make sure none of your sound/audio devices have a problem?

If you have a megaphone at the bottom right near the time Doubloe Click on it and make sure nothing is muted and volume is turned up. You can also get to the Audio Sound properties in the Control Panel, click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio/Sound. You can get there by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control.
