Please check your sound card. Right click the My Computer then click on Properties. Then click on the Hardware Tab and click on Device Manager Button. You will see all the hardwares installed in your computer. Now, if you saw a exclamation point or a question mark, meaning that hardware is not supported by you operating system. All you have to do is to install the driver of that hardware by using a CD or a downloaded driver on the net.

I have a Yamaha rx-v367. The HDMI plays video from my blue Ray but no sound. Tuner, no sound. IPod, no sound. Phone was hooked up in multiple inputs. No sound. I'm stuck here. Please help.


It sounds like the Yam can switch video sources but the audio amplifier section is dead. Although I'm not familiar with this unit, simple logic tells me that unless it's a mulit-channel and/or surround sound" setting, the audio section of your Yamaha has failed. If the Yam has speaker protection mode (5-10 sec. delay when 1st turned on) it's possible that a defective speaker (or speaker wire) could be causing the protection circuit to NOT connect amp-to-speakers. Disconnect one speaker at a time (at rear connection on Yamaha) to see if audio returns.

What to do when no audio/sound after computer reformat


Normally, when you buy a computer, whether desk top or lap top, there's an installation disk that accompanies the unit. This is a moterboard installaer. all the drivers needed by the motherboard is in this disk, but most of the time, the retailers will not give this to you unless you ask for it. This is needed to ensure that the right drivers installed will be compatible with your motherboard, especially during formatting or re-formatting prcess. So if you have recently formatted your computer and there's no sound you can just install the motherboard drivers from the installer then presto, all your needed drivers are installed. But if you don't have the installation disk or mis placed it already, then use the following tips to troubleshoot your audio problems. I hope this will help.
Tip #1. Before formatting your computer, whether a desk top or a lap top, make sure to back up your drivers using programs such as "driver genius", "driver checker" or "driver magician" . These programs can be downloaded freely from their respective sites as "Trial Versions". Download and install any of these programs. Any way, although it's only a trial version, you can use all the function of the program, especially the 'back up driver' function. Make sure to back up your drivers to a location not to the disk/drive that you are going to reformat, otherwise it will be erased during formatting. Use a removable disk/drive or USB to back up your drivers. You can now reformat your computer. After reformat, try to check if there is a sound coming out from your speakers. If no sound is coming out then there must be a problem with the audio drivers. To make sure what is causing the problem, try the following troubleshooting guides ; 1) Click 'start', then 'control panel', double click 'sounds and audio devices', if it says that there is no audio device present, then the problem is on the multi-media device driver. 2) If there is a mult- media device present( ex.AC 97), then the problem is on the audio driver.Whichever the case maybe, double click the 'system' from 'control panel' then click the 'hardware' then 'device manager'. From the device manager, click on the sound, video and game controllers. Right click on the audio device( ex. realtek audio), then click update driver. The hardware & update wizzard will appear, click on 'install from a specified location', click 'next', then specify the folder where you stored your back up drivers, specifically your audio device driver, click 'ok' then the old audio driver will be re installed. Try playing a sound from your computer after reboot.
Tip #2. If after trying the first option and still no sound is produced, try to re install your old drivers using the program you used to back up your drivers by using the 'restore driver' option. make sure to specify the location of your back up driver when prompted. After re installing re boot then play a sound.
Tip #3. If upon restoring the back up drivers, still no sound is produced, go to the windows update using internet explorer browser. After checking your system for critical updates, a run down of updates will be posted, check if there's an update for your audio device driver, select he update then click '
ok'. Re boot your system then play asound.
Tip #4. Before doing all the other tips make sure to check if your connections are in tack, sometimes the problem is only a loose connection of the speaker jacks, or for lap top make sure that your speakers are not in a mute mode or off position.

Can't get sound out of my speakers although sound registers as playing


Check that your computer isn't muted and the volume on the speakers is up. Check that the plug for the speakers is connected correctly. Check to see if the sound card that the speakers are plugged into is set as the default in the control panel. Is there any sound coming out of the front port (earphones). Try another set of speakers.

Sound


This sounds like it could be a loose connection to the speakers somewhere. Check the audio connection with the PC. Also try wobbling the speaker wires to see if you can improve/worsen the problem by doing so. I think its unlikely to be software although you can check the device manager to make sure there are no audio driver issues: start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for sound and video game controllers. Expand the menu, look for the audio device, right click and click properties. The general tab will tell you if the driver is working properly.

I have a 32" LG


Hello Undernet01,

Yes, it's very simple. Connect the computer speakers to the headphone socket on the TV, then run a separate audio cable from the PC to the TV. A PC monitor cable wont carry an audio signal so you need to connect an RCA type cable or similar - depending on whether you have corresponding audio OUT sockets on the PC and audio IN sockets on the TV.

You will then have sound from both the PS3, the PC, and the TV on the computer speakers. The TV speakers will automatically switch off when something is plugged into the headphone socket.

Simples as pies.

No sound comming from audio volume


First check if you have the speakers pin (green) connected in tothe proper green socket on the back of the computer.

If yes, then right click on the sound / speaker icon that is near to your clock on the right bottom, and click "Adjust audio properties"

Now click the sounds tab in the audio properties.

Select any sound from the list under program events, and click the play button near the browse button. It should play a sound.

If you are not able to hear any sound BUT the play icon changes to the stop icon for a few  moments, it means the sounds play alright but something is wrong with the speakers or the connections.

HTH,
Deboo
