If you're using windows:

try to uninstall and reinstall your cound card driver

-right click on My Computer
-choose Properties
-select Hardware tab
-click on Device Manager
-under Sound,Video and Game Controller look for the device in question(the one with punctuation mark)
-right click on it and choose uninstall(take note of the device name before un-installing, you might need it if you want to download a driver for it)
-re-install your sound card driver after

you can find the driver at driverguide.com

if this doesnt work youll have to open up your PC case and rmove and clean the contacts or your sound card and reseat it again...or move it to another slot...

hope this helps

My Gateway laptop says my sound device is working properly, but the sound only works if headphones or speakers are plugged into the jack. how do i fix this?


It sound like your headphone jack is the default sound device. Go to control panel > sounds > look at the devices listed. Click on the speakers that have a device connected to them. You may have two selections for speakers, but one may be tied to a sound device and the other to headphones. Highlight the sound device and click on make this device the default sound device and hit apply.

Button for sound on my laptop dont work


The most likely causes for this is:
External Speakers not turned on. Turn them on...
Driver for the sound device isn't installed: If you see the little speaker icon down the bottom right hand corner of your screen (near the clock), your sound card device driver is working well.
If it is not visable, the sound card device driver may or may not be working. Go into the start button, select settings (if available), then control panel, Sounds and Audio Devices.
Select the Audio tab Ensure that you have a 'default device' set.
If you get any errors when going into the sound and audio devices tab stating that you have no audio devices installed, then its most likely a driver issue. In this case, refer to your local computer shop to have the audio drivers installed.

Driver for the keyboard sound function not installed or not running. Solution: Reboot then test it. Reinstall the driver, test it.

Sound device not working


Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards

No sound


did you check that your pc is having sound drivers installed or not
or they are working good or currupted

here is how you can find out
go to my computer right clik it
select property
go to hardware
select device manager
here in new window you can see all installed devices
find out "sound, video and game controller"
now click + mark on leftside of it
it will drop down the list of available sound/ video devices
if you dont see any sound device then you have to install sound drivers
if you see any sound device but with yellow with it then its installed but not working properly
in that case also you need to install drivers once again

find this out
