Loud thumping sound!


Probably the same issue I am having with the A/C actuator. Move your selector from dash vents to floor vents, then to defrost and see if the sound stops. Mine is stuck on either floor or defrost right now, won't direct air out through the dash vents. The gears in the actuator motors strip and the thumping will get worse until the gear is finally worn down and won't work at all.

When i press "matrix" i hear no sound coming out


you might try uninstall both the sound card and its drivers then restart your computer before reinstalling them only do this if your sound card and its drivers have these on a disc
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have made the correct adjustments there

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can make adjustments there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar

My ibm product key is....QC6Y-F93J9-H6YWB-J4R47-6DO8G...THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEIR IS NO SOUND COMING FROM MY CPU..ITS A BUILT IN SOUND SYSTEM AND ONLY SOUND IT MAKES IS BEEP FOR WARNINGS.IN CONTROL PANEL...


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
 
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

Grinding feeling in left wheel


This sounds like your CV joint is bad if it is a front wheel drive. The CV joint will click or thump when you are turning. It will also make your front wheels shake if it is realy bad.

No sound but i have power


Unless they are USB speakers they would not need a mixer or drivers device.

Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.
OK now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom tool-bar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music CD in your CD/DVD player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check again and make sure it all works.

If you still have any problems check your hardware list and make sure thee are no exclamation marks by any sound hardware (excl. speakers)

These need to be sorted out first. for that you need to know what your sound card is and download the drivers (or update them)
