Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

My speakers have stopped working.

When I turn my computer on and my speakers, they don't work. I've never changed my speakers before and i've had this computer since 2005. I'm not sure if the speakers are the problem, or if it's the computer, because if I put in speaker buds, they don't work either. How can I fix this?

Make sure that your sound is not muted. There should be a little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. If it has a red line through it, it may be muted. Double click it to bring up the properties and unmute it.

If it is not muted, I would suggest reinstalling the sound drivers. The steps to do this will differ based on the model of your computer. For the most part though, you can find this info on e-machines support site.

If that still does not work, I would guess it would be your sound card or onboard sound depending on your machine.

Good luck!

Looking for set up drivers for my old Altec Lansing Speakers


If you do not connect the USB port, the ACS495 speakers should work with any computer OS. (Use the control knobs on the speakers instead of the AMS software.)

I've found the drivers with the AMS software listed here: http://download.driverguide.com/driver/ACS495+speakers/Altec+Lansing/d565728.html for Windows 98 through Vista. (I doubt this has the signed drivers needed to work with 64-bit OS versions. You may be able to get it to run in the compatibility mode for Win7 32-bit. But it may not work on Win7 x64.)

I do not know if this link still works but I don't see any evidence of malware. I hope this helps.

I've problem with interanal speakers in Asus VX2S - don't work - externals work fine


It might be a cause of Loose connection or damage of your laptop speakers. Its a hardware problem. Check your Connectivity of Speakers on the motherboard. It might work!

I bought a new battery from harley, installed it and it worked for a day. Now the lights come on and the security works, but the engine will not turn over. I looked in the manual and can't tell what I...


Look for "resetting the ECM" in the manual. I don't work on the ECM equipped bikes but I've heard guys talk about the procedure of turn the ignition switch on and off several times while pressing different buttons on the bike to "reset" the computer after a battery change. This is just something I've heard that you may find something about in the owner's manual. I do know that the security systems have something like this on them as well. That's why I don't work on them. I work on the early model bikes that the dealers will no longer work on. Shovelheads and Ironheads.

Good Luck

My speakers just out of the blue began to buzz in the middle of a song. The volume was low & did not seem to effect the buzzing - after I turned music off speakers began to make a high pitched ringing...


I've never worked on this model so I can't give you a definite part value or location, but you'll probably find a bad filter capacitor (or possibly more than one) in the power supply. The power supply converts the AC power line voltage to the DC (direct current) needed by the electronics. If the filter capcitors don't work, the result isn't smooth and steady, and the result is an annoying hum. You're probably hearing this.

It's possible to replace the bad capacitors, but it's not always easy. The people who make computer speakers don't often design them to be serviced, and sometimes it's a challenge getting into the power supply. But if you or someone you know with some electronic soldering skills is willing to give it a try, you might be able to bring these speakers back to normal. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

I've been using OKIDATE MICROLINE 320 PRINTER at work. I was printing something and I realized that I was printing the wrong page so to stop printing, I simply turned off the power and waited....


You would have to cancel the current print job from your computer for it to stop. Assuming you have access to a computer that is connected to that printer, you will have to find that printer by going to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Oki ML 320 then right click, select "See What's Printing" and cancel Current print job (I am also assuming you are using windows). I really hope this helps, if not add a comment clarifying your question, thanks.

I just bought a top-end MacBook Air 13.3" 4 GB/256 GB for presentations. I also have a Dell M410HD projector, also quite new (a few months old), which works great with the two PCs (one new, one old)...


They (Apple) might be right. It could be that the projector is damaged, like the bulb, or it could be incompatible with your computer, but I don't think that is the case. Try taking the projector to a computer repair place.

Wow, general problem here, but the most near your problem could be, power failure, or the Power adapter is bad, or a energy failure at home, time to buy a new adapter.
