Open the Control panel 2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. 3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document. 4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel. 5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start. Now next you can do is If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware.

I just hooked up an AOC monitor to two computers. Sound is working on one but not working on my HP Pavilion. How do I resolve that? I don't have any extra speakers.


The sound goes out of the computer to a set of speakers. If the monitor has speakers built into it, then the sound comes out of them. Each computer must have a connection to the sound card (the little green hole) to speakers. If you want sound from the second computer, unplug the sound cable from the one computer and plug it into the other one.

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

My external speakers work with my ipod but not my computer


Is the jack "on-board"? That is, on the motherboard? Or, do you have a separate sound card in your computer? On-board sound devices frequently fail . Either way, I would say you probably need a sound card. Make sure you have an open OCI slot in your computer and then go buy a PCI sound card. Oh yes, once installed, you may or may not need to disable the on-borad device in your BIOS to prevent conflicts.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

Sounds as if you lost the audio drivers for your sound card. Go into your Control Panel and call up SOUNDS. Double-click on any sound listed and see if you get an error message stating you don't have a sound card.

If that's the case, go to the website for your brand of computer and search for the audio drivers for your make and model computer.
