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.

No sound to speakers


This is pretty easy to troubleshoot. First plug something else into the speakers to make sure they work. (cd player, phone, gameboy ect.). If the speakers don't come on make sure they are getting power. There should be a light on the speakers to varify they are getting power. If the speakers do work when you plugged them into something else, plug them back into the computer and make sure you are plugging them in the right portal. A common mistake is plugging them into the mic jack. Look for a small pair of head phones next to the jack on the back of the computer. Plug them in and go to your volume control on the bottom right of your computer screen. Turn that up. This should fix you problem...if not, you may have an issue with your computer.

We have older speakers that came with our computer, and we just moved and since we've moved no sound has come out of the speakers. i have checked a million times and everything's plugged in. i...


First check if the driver for your speakers is up to date. For all we know maibe something that was installed automaticaly or by some one might be interfearing with them. Go to the Window menu, click on Conrol Panel, click on speaker settings, and check to see if anything looks off (like everything is gray and you can't really select anything). If everything seems ok check all the volume settings. Remember there are 3 things that control the volume on the speakers. 1: the nob on the speakers; 2: the volume on your desktop (lower right side next to the clock); 3: the volume on the program you are using (like windows media player). Another thing to remember is some computers come with a mute button (ether on the keyboard or monitor. If your computer has a play/skip/stop buttons it most likely has a mute button. Oh, and some computers have a volume nob next to the CD/DVD player (where you put in disks). Maibe some one turned it down as they grabed to move it. Make sure it's also turned up. If they're all turned up then most likely something got bumped loose during the move. In wich case you'll have to open it up and check the conections. It'd be a good idea to test some one elses speakers so you'll know if it's the computer or the speakers...or you could try pluging in the speakers you have into something else (like an MP3 Player).

My computer speakers don't work & i've tried everything even my headphones don't work so what should i do


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem
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 icon system 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
hope this helps you
if you dont have a motherboard disc you will have to download the drivers
