Is there a red light glowing from the Headphone jack?? If there is, stick a toothpick in there and wiggle it around until you find a little toggle switch in the back, toggle it, and the red light should disappear, thus giving you back internal speakers, and use of headphones!

I have a acer with the acer crystal eye webcam built in it. do it have a microphone with it. if so how do I get it to work?


The Acer with crystal eye webcam will also have a built-in microphone. The webcam is in the center at the top of the screen. The built-in microphone is typically half-way between the edge of the screen and the webcam. It is a little opening with a microphone logo beside it. You can test both audio input with the built-in microphone and the audio output with the built-in speakers by doing the following....
1. click start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices
2. in the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties click the Voice tab, then click the Test hardware button
3. in the Sound Hardware Test Wizard window click the Next button, if required, click unblock...
4. speak into microphone to do the Microphone Test. Recording meter will show movement if it works.
5. click Next button to do the Speaker Test. Microphone input is now output on the speakers.
6. click Next button when finished doing the readings and click Finish to close the wizard.

Trying to connect BA735 speakers to a MacBook? No sound? Are they compatible?


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.

It's a matter of the output from the computer's sound card (built-in) being incompatible with the speaker input. The card is sending out analog sound wile the speakers are expecting digital input. Downloading a driver won't help because that doesn't fix the root problem. You need to get speakers designed for analog input, or a sound card with digital output. As it stands now, your computer just can't use those speakers.

Since your using a MacBook there is no option for this Pci Digital Sound Card.

N no sound


Hello
you just start from speaker first. if the speaker is out there will be no sound output from your TV. To confirm this, just plug in an earphone or headphone pin into the headphone or earphone socket , if provided, on the TV. If sound is available through headphone, it means that the sound output section of your TV has no trouble, but the speker is out. Replacing it with same type and number will resolve your problem. If there is no sound fron the earphone too, surely the sound output section inside the circuit board of your TV has the fault.
If so you have to open your TV. Locate the sound output stage, which can be easly locted through following the speaker wires. There will be an Ic [Sound Output Ic], normally screwed onto a metal plate, to radiate heat out when it works. Check for any bad solderings at the legs of that Ic by tuning the printed circuit board upside down. It is very difficult to locate loose solderings. i always do is, resoldering the suspected solder points by applying a little more solder. You also do this first. If it does not help, resolder the Ic out from the circuit board, and go for a same type and number. Replacing it will solve your problem. In some RCA sets, sound section is built out on to another board. Locate it and do the same. OK.

No sound from the audio when playing back


To work around this behavior, use digital output or analog speakers.

To switch to digital CD playback:
  1. Start Windows Media Player.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. Click the Devices tab, and then click Properties for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive that you are using for playback.
  4. In the Playback section, click Digital.
  5. Click OK, and then restart the playback.

Speaker volume


This is a common complaint. The key to the diagnosis is that your MacBook is saying "Digital out, built-in output" instead of "Internal speakers, built-in output."
The output jack on this model supports both traditional and optical plugs. A mechanical sensor inside the jack tells it which is inserted. The problem is that the jack is somewhat fragile, and some plugs can nudge the sensor out of position, in which case it thinks an optical plug is permanently inserted.
If one has great repair skill, one can sometimes jiggle the connector back into position with a small pick (make sure the power is disconnected and the battery is out, if it is removable). Sometimes inserting a conventional plug into the jack several times will correct the condition. Otherwise, you should bring it in for repair and insist that it is a widely-encountered product defect.

Boston Acoustics Computer Speakers no sound


This speaker system requires a digital audio input, which most older systems don't have. The sound card that was built into your Gateway can put out either a digital or analog signal depending on how you have it set. Chances are your new sound card might be able to output in digital mode as well, but you may have to turn it on manually. Try double-clicking your volume icon in your system tray, then click the "advanced" button at the bottom left. This should bring up a window that lets you adjust the treble and bass, but it should also give you an "other options" area that lets you turn on digital output. If your new card supports digital output, the option should be there. If the card does not support it, you will have to use a different card. I hope this helps.
