    I apologize, it had XP before it was wiped, I installed 2000pro. So far everything is working fine. I have video, just no audio through the monitor speakers. When I checked the device manager it said i have no audio driver. I tried downloading a sound card, but the installation wizard comes up with portcls.sys disk #4 needed. I don't have that disk because i bought the sys. used.



    Hope this helps

Connecting audio from pc to receiver.


What does your sound card have for audio outputs? Mine (M7250N Media Center) has all the expected 7.1 analog audio outputs AND a digital S/PDIF audio output that I run to my receiver's coaxial digital input.

Even if you have just 2-channel audio on your PC the headphone output can be used with an adapter that makes it conenct to a standard RCA audio cable. Run it to any available Linme Level input on the Denon. Get into your sound controls on the PC and make sure your Master Volume is unmuted and adjust whatever else applies to your machine that may affect the audio.

Your monitor is not really a player in this scenario.

Audio does not work on my notebook


you will have to go to the website to download drivers for your audio card. If you are running Windows they may have audio drivers. Go to website of the makers of your computer for drivers. Check the volume first. If this doesn't work then consider a new sound card and install it.

I HAVE NO SOUND ON MY GATEWAY GT5660E. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING


Do you have the speakers plugged into the correct plugs in the sound card? Make sure speakers are not plugged into the mike jack. Do you hear any static as you remove and replug the jacks? Do the speakers have a power light?

Open Control Panel ->Sounds and click on Sounds tab. Do any sounds play? Click on the Audio tab and make sure Default device is your sound card. Click on Volume tab and then Advanced. Make sure nothing is muted.

Assuming you have Windows, check the sound card in Control Panel->System, Hardware, Device Manager. Check for correct drivers. If necessary, uninstall sound card and let Windows detect it again and install drivers.

When I try to play an audio file on my computer, it says that it seems that no sound device is installed or working on my computer. What's a sound device and how can I solve this problem ?


a sound device is a dedicated board the fits in a free PCI slot(inside the PC) and produces all of the sounds once connected to a set of speakers, hifi unit,some newer PC's come with built in sound cards

not all cards are the same quality some are standard stereo and some are full theatre quality(dolby,THX etc)
so its wise to find a solution for your needs as many aspects of newer cards may never be needed

maybe you have a sound card in your system and have not yet installed drivers if you right click on my computer(on desktop) and use the properties in the menu,you will see a new box ,goto the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER tab
click the + next to sound,video,gamecontrollers

if u see any mention of an audio device right clickit and select UPDATE DRIVER

but remember a sound card must be connected to speakers or a hifi unit to produce the sound

Monitor / Speaker Problem


As you boot your PC there's a way to get to Cmos or Bios Setup screens. Sometimes you tap the Del key, sometimes it's one of the F keys. So get into Setup and make sure that the Audio System is turned on. Also if you got a disc for *********** board, there may be Audio drivers on it.

Hope that fixed Ya...

Hello!
im affraid to answer your question because in most cases you will rate me " thanks for trying" it hurt me but it's ok because i want to help you.

First install the driver of your "sound blaster X-Fi extreme audio notebook card" the Utility cd is enclosed in it. after that Hook your speaker to the output of the newly installed card. and then go to control panel , double click the "sounds and audio devices" and then in the "audio tab" and in sound playbak. select the device according to your sound card.

You can adjust some setting there and click ok.

may this solve your problem.

Dell Inpiron 1420 having Speaker Problem, I have checked Drivers,and sound card installation but didnt find any problem with all that. Appreciate if some one can guied me as how can I fix that problem.


Some PC's have 2 audio outs, one in front and one in back. Often they are switcheable, as in my Shuttle xPC. If it is a sound card, try another PCI slot. If it is integrated, do a chipset driver update from the chipset maker, like Nvidia or ATI, Intel, etc.
