Very few desktop computers have built-in speakers other than a small beeper on the motherboard, used for error codes at startup. You need some kind of external speakers which you plug in to the output jack on the computer's rear panel. Also, these need to be powered speakers, meaning they have a built-in amplifier. The computer's audio output signal is line level, and too low to drive speakers directly. You could plug in headphones, though, and listen to the computer that way until you get some speakers.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Did not receive owner's manual with new computer; Asus CG1330-07


Most do not come with manuals anymore, there will be info available online at ASUS site, or digitally on the hard drive, somewhere. Remember to make recovery disks, which is now a new computer owner task.

No sound does it need an external speaker


hi, it does need a set of external speakers , if you intend playing music it will sound better if you buy a 2.1 setup ( 2 small speakers and a subwoofer) you can purchase reasonable ones for around £25 , if not playing music or games with sound effects then opt for a simple 2 speaker setup , plug the mini 3.5mm jack plug from the speakers into the green jack socket .
hope this helps

I have just set up my new Acer desktop and there is no sound. I do not have external speakers


Well, the first thing you either neet to get some speakers, or use an ear phone to determine if you are indeed hearing anything. Sometimes I notice my computer would show a red x over the volume indicating that there is a conflict.
I would suggest you try in the following order;
  1. Make sure the speakers cable is plugged into the "GREEN" outlet at the back
  2. Get some external speakers and test the sound
  3. Get some earphones if you cant get speakers
  4. Restart your computer
  5. If same,
  6. if your computer have pci audio card, take it out and reseat it. Make sure your computer is shut down of course.
  7. if it is onboard, you'll need to check and see in device manager if the audio card drivers is showing a problem and update it.
Hope one of the above combination of solutions help.

Speakers wont work for my Hp dc5000


You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.
