Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Computer Speakers Recently, my grandmother did something to our computer, and we've fixed everything so far, but the speakers don't work. They ARE plugged into the right place, they DO have battery, and are plugged into an outlet. The volume on the actual speaker is on, and about half-way up, but I tried to go to the computers' speaker settings and it says there isn't any hardware. And I'm pretty sure the sound card or whatever works, because the computer is pretty new. But this problem has happened before, yet unfortunately I can't get ahold of the person who fixed it to find out how they did it.

I have disconnected my pc to move office and everything works except my advent speakers


Verify the speakers are plugged into the green "speaker port" and not the mic port. Verify the power is plugged in and speakers are on. Verify the volume is turned up on the speakers as well as on the computer (small speaker icon by system time or through control panel) Verify there is not a driver issue in device manager (right click computer, click properties, click device manager on left side, make sure there are no yellow ! or ?)
Comment back with verification of all of these steps.

I have a problem with my computer speakers because they don't work & i've even tried to to use headphones & even they won't work so what should i do


It sounds like it may be a driver issue, but first, I'm assuming you check the volume controls on Windows to make sure it wasn't muted or anything. Yeah? Good. So let's get to the drivers. I actually have a tip here that will show you how to do this. Check it out: http://www.fixya.com/support/r9307246-fix_sound_installing_new_driver Hope this helps!

There is no sound from my computer


Connect the AC power-adapter to the speakers.

Turn the speakers on, and check that they "hiss" when turned to 100% volume.

Connect the speakers to another computer, to verify that they work on at least _ONE_ computer.

Connect a different set of speakers to your computer, to verify that your computer is sending sound to the speakers.

On the computer, "unmute" the speakers.

On the computer, open the Sound Mixer application, and be sure that the sliders for "volume" are maxed-out.

There's something wrong with my speakers i cant hear anything


Are the speakers powered on? Make sure there is no power switch to turn them off or on. Then check to make sure the volume on the speakers is turned up if there is any. Next check to make sure the speakers are plugged into the green hole on your laptop, usually it will have a picture of headphones above it. Then make sure in the bottom right hand corner of your screen that the sound icon does not have a red X on it. If it does have a red X on it, simply click it and unmute it.

Cannot get sound from built in speakers in Windows Vista : what to do?


Hi there,

Please try to install the driver of your sound card. Just ensure that your driver installer is supports vista. If not you really need to get one compatible vista, if you know the model of your sound card, just search in the internet for free drivers.

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.
