Try to uninstall the sound card, shut your pc off, take the sound card off, attach it again and turn on the pc. Then reinstall the drivers and see whether the same problem occurs or not.

Thanks,

Cant hear anything.


right click on speaker icon, select play back devices, a box will appear and show the devices that are present, if there is more than one, click on the one that has no green check mark on it. Click set as default and try again. Also make sure nothing is muted.

I am having trouble with my volume i cannot her any thing i cannot listen to music


First, check to see if the speaker wire is in the correct spot. This is normally a green port in the back of your computer. Also, look at the Desktop, lower right corner and there is an icon of a speaker (Assuming Windows machine) and if you click on it, you should get the volume control. Make sure volume is nor muted.

Dell a215 computer speakers can't get sound but the green power light is on


Well i sometimes go through alot of troubleshooting just to find its the most simple thing in the end.

Start at the source. Check if the green audio cable is plugged into the correct audio jack on the pc. Colours match up. (green with green)
And if that doest work check that the Pc isnt on mute.

To check this, there is a icon of a speaker on the task bar on the bottom right of the screen.

And if all this has been done and u still have no sound, plugg the speakers into a ipod or a similar device to see that the speakers actually do work. turn the volume up and down as well.

Hope this helps :)

Saadddd.no sound????


Are these built in speakers? If so, check the speaker drivers and the application that control the speaker volume etc to see if it is actually muted.
If they are external, check the power source.

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.

Have external gateway speakers


First make sure your sound cards are working properly. 1) Check the master volume of your PC. Go to start menu, control panel, sounds speech and audio devices, sounds and audio devices - i) In volume tab click the speaker volume and check whether all the left, right, etc.. volumes are in medium or high. ii) In audio tab click the volume tab of sound playback and make sure that the master volume is not in mute and all the volumes are either in medium level or at 100%. After making these changes try playing any music. Even if the problem persists go and get your sound card checked in an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

Speakers are plugged in correctly, lights on but still no sound


Check your output jack again and make sure its on the green jack
and also check your speaker wires, if okay then check this;

For Windows XP;
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Sounds and Audio Devices
  3. On the Volume tab under "Device volume" check that sound is NOT muted
  4. Adjust volume control
  5. Check "Speaker Setup" under "Speaker settings" under the "Advanced" button
For Vista:
  1. Control Panel
  2. Sounds
  3. Select Speakers then properties
  4. Make sure device is enabled
  5. Test sound
  6. Adjust volume controls
Under Device Manager make sure that under your sound card that you dont have a yellow exclamation. Yellow exclamation indicates you need to install the correct driver.

Sound


Make sure your volume is not on mute. If the speaker icon on your lower right has a red x means its on mute. To test go to control panel and double click sounds and test. If Windows sounds work without speakers then problem is with speakers. Make sure volume is up, make sure its properly connected to correct output jack (usually green or light green). Also make sure speaker power on. If those things are correct check your device manager ( right click my computer) select "manage", click on "device manager" and on right pane check to see if theres any yellow exclamation, question mark or red x on the sound device section. Yellow exclamation or question mark means to update or install correct drivers. Check your speaker box if it comes with a CD.
