Possible sound card problem

I have external speakers and the sound is now coming out sounding like mickey mouse. I changed the speakers out for a better pair and I am still having the same issue. Could this mean my sound card is out? if that si the case is it hard to replace a sound card? (the only "fixing" I have done on my computer is changing the memory stick) BTW I am referring to a desktop emachine if it matters. If I have to replace the sound card can you recommend one? I am not a gamer or even close but i do like to download music and oule like to actually be able to here the proper singer (no offense to Mickey of course) thank you for the help AM

How to use speaker in computer?


Does your motherboard has an onboard sound card? If it has then read your motherboard manual especially the audio section of the manual where the topic is described how and where to plug in which audio jacks coming out from you speakers (speaker system) to which part of the external audio ports usually located at the rear end of your computer case. You need to install the sound card drivers to activate audio properties of your computer of course, to actually use the speakers.
You can also use the front panel audio port of your computer case where you can connect your speakers to as well.
In case your motherboard did not come up with sound card installed you can always install an external sound card and then connect the speakers to the proper external audio ports of the card. Just read your motherboard or sound card manual. It is all there.

Intel d 865 gsa mother board is working but not display no beep what is the problem


i thinks it's not working, check again.....
no display, no beep.....simple symptom of a dead MB

the quality of the MB is all components will work together, even if one component in it fails the MB is dead.....

this rule is not applicable to the following devices in the MB
inbuilt sound cards, or
either of the USB ports or
mouse port, keyboard port

As you can use an external device like a USB sound adaptor insted of the internal sound card for your speaker/sound.
The same goes for mouse and keyboard, you can buy keyboards/mouse that work thru USB
The same is of a USB port, if one of the USB ports fail you have the other ports to use, if all of the USB ports fail then you can use a external USB connector to a LAN port and make the LAN port a USB device.

also.....there is no option..... that you can change one of the components.....they all are embeded in the circuit board, it's cost effective to get a new MB than repair the defective component.....

all the best

Check the settings for your speakers in the sound settings. It is possible that the settings have changed. It is also possible that the sound card has went bad in that port.

Sound is not working


There are some possible reasons why the sound is not working. It could be the volume control is in "MUTE", or the right sound card is not selected in the volume properties, or the speaker is defective.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Try to connect an external 2-channeled PC speaker. The computer should recognize the speaker and the sound should be transferred to the PC speaker. If the sound works on the PC external speaker, then you know that the volume control is NOT in mute and the sound card is selected. It means also that the built-in speakers could be defective.

2. If the same problem occur after connecting an external PC speaker, check the volume control, and make sure that the "MUTE" box is not checked. Then adjust the master volume.

* If everything's properly configured, but there's still no sound, check the volume properties under the Control Panel. Be sure that the correct sound card driver is selected. If that did not help, try to re-install the sound card driver.

* And the last option, contact the manufacturer and have them fix it for you.

Thank you and good luck!

Rattling sound with any significant base output


You either ripped your voice coil, or you have something jumping around inside (Screw, nail, etc.). You can tell of a blown speaker by pressing straight in, and if you hear a rubbing noise, then your speaker has disconnected from your voice coil. Mickey mouse jobs include Krazy Glue, but It's touch and go
