Re: no sound on my computer
If you are using windows then double click on speaker icon in system tray near TIME display.. it will open a window, now see if there is a check box marked as MUTE or volume level set to low (in Master Volume & Wave ).. Un-check if mute is selected or level up the volume slider... if there is no icon then use control panel to go for sound settings.. if it say No Device then use your computer driver CD and install sound driver and restart your PC... please inform if it does work.

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume iconsystem select adjust volume
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
Is the power to the speakers correct? Since these are computer speakers,have you checked that the volume on the computer is turned up all the way? Have you tried the speakers on another computer or portable radio of something?
It must be with your mic or with your computer's sound settings or with your skype sound settings. First check your Microphone, you can record something using the Windows (if your o.s. is windows xp or vista, or etc..etc..) built-in Sound Recorder.
Open your computer's sound settings and make sure it's default recording device is Microphone and the volume is turned up.
Open the skype, click "Tools", then "Options" and again click" "Audio Settings" and check the mic volume, if possible uncheck the "Automatically adjust the microphone settings" and turn the slider to the right. Save the changes you've made and try again.
Look into your computer audio setup, usually a icon in the lower right. they have controls for volume, some have different areas such as oper sounds, outdorrs, etc. Maybe these are turned down or muted...Also plug a head set into the CD or DVD rom port in the front if yu have and see if the volume is good. Possible bad audio card. Also try different speakers. Small speakers sell for $20.00 or less.
To troubleshoot a no sound issue first you must check your device manager to make sure the audio device is installed properly.
To goto the device manager in XP: Right click my computer>Properties > Hardware Tab > Device manager.
Look for your audio device in the list under "Sound, Video and game controllers". If it has a exclamation mark or question mark beside it you will need to download the most recent drivers from the manufacturer's website.
Next step is to goto start>programs>accessories>entertainment>volume control make sure that Wave nor Master Volume is not muted, and both are turned up.
Third step is to check for onboard volume control, there might be volume controls on the system hardware itself.
If you say that external speakers work and not the built in speakers, then the headphone jack that you plug the speakers into may be defective. As it is always detecting something plugged into it and never turns the internal speakers on.
The first things I would check would be the volume control within your operating system. If I assume you have Windows XP, you would go to Start-->All Program-->Accessories-->Entertainment and click "Volume Control". Make sure all of the sliders are at least 1/2 way up. You might also want to check to make sure the cable from the speakers to the computer is plugged into the proper jack (usually the green one), as sometimes computers have jacks for rear speakers, which might make them sound quieter.
