Firstly check the volume is not low or muted on both windows and the speakers. In windows click the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, check the volume is turned up. Then click mixer or advanced and check that all volumes are turned up.
If using a laptop, check that the hotkey control for volume is on. You will see an audio icon on one of your ‘F’ keys, hold the Fn button located near the ctrl and press the volume function key.
Next open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.
If you are still having issues the sound card may be faulty, this is usually integrated into the motherboard. In a desktop PC you could buy a new PCI soundcard if you have a spare PCI slot in your machine.
You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

There is no sound coming from the speakers on the SC-HT900 dvd home theater sound system. It used to make a loud pop sound but then would still work. Now it does not make any sounds. The dvd will play...


May be a fuse inside blown , if it makes a loud pop that can take out a fuse, If you find one blown , replace with same type and try machine .Dont replace with higher rated fuse though , if it keeps blowing. Try using headphones and if you get sound , may be speakers.

I'm having trouble with sound when i try and install a surround sound system. This is the second system I've had that my lg would not play sound


Firstly you must have the remote typically to set the speakers up or there is a combination of keys to do this but usually some functions cannot be changed without the remote.  
Second, the surround sound playback can only be played if the sound that you are listening to has the surround sound track, otherwise you may not hear hardly anything when your device is set to the wrong function.

The speakers must also match the surround sound system otherwise you may not hear anything at all.
Remember: A 5.1 System is 5-speakers,   A 7.1 system is 7 speakers!
 
The speakers should be marked for which place they belong LF= Left,Front...etc.

My pc plays audio when i start up , cannot find the source of the audio , can you help


Depends on what (and how ) it's playing. Check in the Start folder for anything out of the ordinary: media players, different files, anything that shouldn't be there.
Otherwise maybe has modified the music Windows plays when it starts - check that into Control Panel - Sounds - System sounds - or whatever is called in yours.

When I burn a music cd it will not play in my sterio or cd player, it only plays on the laptop. Can you tell me what to do to fix this.


Make sure the players can play the format you are using to burn. My surround sound system will play most audio but my car system will only play an origional cd format (AU) not mp3 or wav for example. Also some systems will not play cd-rw but will play cd-r and some won't play anything but origional cd's.

Surround sound hookup


Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.

No sound from speakers


Well, Hold on here for just a minute! Does the system play other sources, like DVD or tape or anything? Before I trash the amp or receiver, I like to get a death certificate to that effect before I do so....accordianman
