There are free downloads of driver detection software available that will scan your pc's applications and drivers. They will notify you as to whether or not you need to update a driver, and generally direct you right to a source online where you can obtain it for free. Drivers need to be updated quite often, and with most applications, we are rarely notified.
Finally, there was an issue a year or two ago with Logitech webcams and the Vista operating system. Apparently Vista users would install their Logitech webcams and inadvertently knock out their audio drivers altogether--so it could be something really weird and seemingly non-related.
Below is a link for "Driver Magician" on Cnet (a pretty reputable download site, IMHO).

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

My computer is vista but upgraded to windows seven and the built in sound card does not seem to work i have tried different devices and updating the drivers i even changed the sound card none of them seem...


if even the Windows 7 driver for the sound card did not fix it, try to uninstall the audio driver, then let Windows try to detect and install a native driver if available. Then click START, type services.msc in the Search box, then click Services.msc from the results. From there, look for the Windows Audio service, double-click it and make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic and click the Start button. Restart the computer, open the audio properties, make sure the correct Playback device is selected. If you are using internal speakers for a laptop or external speakers for desktops, select Speakers/Headphones, click Set Default. Then test the audio of your system. Hope this helps.

My speakers no longer have sound, even though the green light is turned on and they are plugged in correctly


There could be several small annoyances happening here. The first thing I suggest is try hooking the speakers audio (green) cable to a different sound source, such as an MP3 player, or cd player, or a portable GPS. If any of those devices allow your speakers to produce sound, then the issue is NOT with the speakers, and you need to look at your audio drivers/settings. Make sure your audio driver is installed, and make sure your audio settings are not muted. You can call your pc manufacturer to get help in determining your driver status.

Speakers keep cutting out when they are plugged in and a high pitch squeal comes out of computer speaker


How many Audio ports do you have in the back of your computer? Also, what Audio DRIVERS do you have installed in your computer? If you have REALTEK audio drivers, it SHOULD automatically recognize the speakers are being plugged in and change that ports usage over to speaker output, but not all drivers do this. It could simply be that you're plugging them into the wrong port audio port if you have 4 - 6 back there, as some motherboards do. Try different audio plugs and see if that works for you.

Windows 7 Audio Quadraphonic Not functioning well


Sounds like you are getting quad sound in the test process that checks them, yet when in windows media player or winamp (or whatever) your rear speakers aren't producing sound: Try setting your sound drivers to do something like "speaker fill" then you are set. I'm under the belief that stereo sounds aren't being matrixed into all 4 speakers.

Mic


Try a different set of headphone, if it works, then it is the headphone set.

If you get same problem with all headphones, then

If you get no sound: ensure that you have sound from speaker, if you get sound from speakers and no headphone working, then there is a problem in the headphone connection.

If you have no sound at all , not even with speakers, then check audio settings in control panel, ensure audio is not muted. If audio settings are OK, then you need to reinstall audio driver, or you have a faulty audio card.

Additionally, if it is only the mic not working then do the following:

Go to control panel and open sound and audio device.

Open volume settings and find settings for mic.

Tick off the mute option.

The mic is muted by default in Windows, that is usually the reason why it is not working.
