Dear JTBB,

It sounds like your server didn't come with sound capabilities. In my experience working with servers, I find that many of them do not come equipped with an internal sound card. This is most likely the case with yours. If you have a few extra dollars to spare, my suggestion would be to purchase a sound card from a discount computer parts store. I like to shop online at "Tigerdirect.com". There parts are very inexpensive, yet they are of good quality. You can get a good sound card there for as low as $9.99. Creative labs makes good sound blaster cards.
I hope this helps, let me know if I can assist you further.

    Thanks Arthur Bennett. The server machine did have no sound card. But if I like to add one, how do I know what brand of sound card will work? Thanks

No sound


Here are some things to check:

  • If you have external speakers, make sure that they're plugged into a working power source and that they're turned on.

  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

    On your speakers, make sure that the cable that plugs into your computer is plugged into both the speakers and the correct jack on your computer (the jack that goes to your sound card). Most sound cards have at least three jacks. Plug the speaker cable into the line-out jack. This jack often has a symbol showing an arrow pointing away from the jack. If the jacks aren't labeled, check the information that came with your computer to see what each jack does.

    ?id=8440e487-7ae3-427b-a9b7-c861a5521758Most sound cards have at least one line-out jack to connect speakers and a line-in jack to connect an audio input device.

  • Make sure the speaker volume isn't turned down too low or muted. This is particularly important for laptops, which often have small speakers that can be hard to hear.

    1. Click to open Volume.

    2. Move the slider up to increase the volume.

      Make sure the Mute button is not turned on. If the button looks like this: ?id=6b62e2ae-431c-4fb5-8905-aaaea5b445a4, muting is turned off. If the button looks like this:?id=0f47efa2-ffcc-466d-a723-bd0ce4640578 , click it to turn off muting.
      Note

      • Some laptops have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a laptop, check the external volume control to make sure it's not turned all the way down.

  • Make sure your headphones aren't plugged into the line-out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to listen with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

  • If your computer is supposed to have a sound card, make sure that the sound card is installed and that it's working properly.

    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
    To make sure that your computer has a sound card

    1. Click to open Device Manager.‌ ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed. If there should be a sound card installed, you'll need to install one. See Install or remove a sound card.
      Note

      • If you think you have a sound card installed but you don't see it under Sound, video and game controllers, double-click Other devices to check for any audio devices listed there.

    To make sure that your sound card is working properly

      If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem.

    1. Click to open Device Manager.‌ ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category, right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

    3. Click the General tab, and then check the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

      If there's a problem, you might need a new driver for your sound card. For more information, see Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.

If these actions don't solve the problem, there might be a problem with the hardware for your sound card, although in most cases sound problems are caused by missing or out-of-date drivers, or a problem with your speakers. If you suspect you have a hardware problem, contact the manufacturer of your computer or sound card.

I have a dell computer that runs windows xp. im not a complete idiot but im not very computer savvy. I was messing around a few weeks ago trying to clean up my system from the previuos owners stuff . i...


Many Dell PCs have an internal speaker that will allow sounds and even music to play - it is just not as good as the external types that offer sub woofers and stereo sound. As long as you're hearing the familiar Windows Sounds and not simple beeps - your sound card drivers are probably ok.

This makes me think that you've either inserted the speaker plug into the wrong jack on the PC or have an issue with the speakers themselves. Generally, these jacks are color coded. If yours are, make sure that speakers are connected to the GREEN jack. If not color coded there should be an indication of an arrow pointing OUT or a speaker icon near the speaker jack. If still no luck, it is possible that the cord between the plug and the speakers has gotten pinched or broken. Try plugging a pair oh head phones into the jack - or plug the speakers into another device with a speaker jack. I'm pretty sure you'll get your answer after doing that. Some final thoughts: Maybe your speakers need power? Are they plugged in? Is the outlet powered? Is there a power indicator? Is the volume knob turned to minimum?

If you still have problems - provide the model number of your Dell PC and we can dig some more - but I think you'll find the problem if you follow the steps above.

I hope this was Very Helpful - and good luck!

ok if im getting what your saying
the port of the computer for line in is not recognizing the sound of your sterio
ok there should be extra jack on speaker wire that should goto line in on computer
computers dont find these jacks cause there already predetermind when the cards drivers was installed
hook the jack to line out speaker out port if the speakers are powered find the power on them turn up
then goto your sound setup get to your volume controls and find the volume controls that are muted and or turned down even in advanced settings
if you recently changed your sound card you also want to be in the sounds setup and make sure that the propper software driver is connected and not the old one still in its place sometimes new drivers dont set the old drivers aside but it adds to the sound setup list
you will find the sound setup in control panel
also there is that slight chance you will have to reinstall software again
hope this has some help for you seeing i have no way of actually seeing the speakers in person and how they work

Can I hook up external speakers to this T.V.?


This tv carries two sound out phono plugs, but if for some reason they are not there ( date of mfr ) you can use the headphone out jack. Just go to any radio shack store and explain what you are trying to do and im sure they will be happy to assist you.

good luck,

Is this a Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop?

If so I can help you find sound drivers for it. You have to figure out if the speakers are the problem if you do not get an obvious error to indicate that it is a software problem.

Have you;

Checked power?
Checked plugs to make sure they are in the right place?
Swapped out the speakers with a set that you know work?
Used headphones to make sure the sound is actually coming out of the computer?

Let me know the answers to these questions please.

There is no sound


Have you recently used headphones in this device? I have a portable DVD player that had a similar problem. It thought that headphones were plugged in and that turned the sound in the external speakers off. If i plugged in headphones the sound worked in them. So I jiggled the headphone plug in while in the jack and removed it and the sound came back on.
