Hello janconn 9,

1. Check the volume settings in the Volume Control. You can access this by right clicking the Volume icon at the lower right side of your screen. Also make sure you have chosen the correct mixer device under OPTION > PROPERTIES in the Volume Control. Make sure nothing is muted and that you have the necessary panels available - Master Volume, Wave, SW Synth, etc.

2. Install the latest sound card drivers from the manufacturer's website.

3. Finally, check the Device Manager to see that audio is active without any exclamation marks. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Device Manager > Hardware.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

I have a tv screen that i use to play x box,watch movies and use it for a computer but there is no sound on the computer


That sounds like a computer problem, not an Xbox or screen problem. There may be no sound on the computer because it is aware that you are running the sound to another device like external speakers or the speakers in the TV if there are any. There may be a setting in the software of your computers that allows for sound to come out both the computers speakers and any speaker device the computer is feeding sound to.

My grandad has bought a computer and i tryed to show him how to play a dvd but no sound was playing. I found out there was no sound card? I dont actually know what this means but surely a computer should...


If there is no sound card. Probably it was disabled the sound and maybe there is no really sound card was installed. To make it short buy a PCI sound card, turn off your computer and install the card to PCI slot and turn on your computer and your computer will detect that there is a found new hardware. Ignore it and insert the cd installer and install the driver of your sound card. If it's ask you to restart just restart your computer to update its system. In case that there is a built in sound on your computer check your motherboard model and search for the driver from their official website and download and install, if you download the correct driver it will automatically installed your sound and your sound will be working. Have a nice day!

My speakers will not play on my computer


Those speakers were originally supplied with Gateway computer system that had sound cards with digital outputs. While some versions had analog and digital sound inputs, most often the speakers had digital input only. The on-board sound in the eMachines is analog output only, so the speakers are most likely not compatible with your computer. If you want to use those speakers, you will need to locate a PCI sound card with digital output.

No sound when phone disconnected


Hello!

in sound settings (in control panel) you shold find the computers sound card and set that as default soundcard.
And in the settings (preferences) menu in the software you use to perform calls you just specify your computer phone as sound device.
