Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

1 Answer

Sound Issues I have a problem getting the sound to work on my computer. Its not an issue of the speakers, because my computer will still play general computer sounds like, the start-up alert. However, when I try to play music already on my computer, or watch something online, the sound does not work. I think it may be because I have a Microsoft ISATAP adapter (code 31) error. I can't seem to fix this, and I don't know where to start. Any help? Anywhere I can go to fix this?

This sounds like it could be a loose connection to the speakers somewhere. Check the audio connection with the PC. Also try wobbling the speaker wires to see if you can improve/worsen the problem by doing so. I think its unlikely to be software although you can check the device manager to make sure there are no audio driver issues: start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for sound and video game controllers. Expand the menu, look for the audio device, right click and click properties. The general tab will tell you if the driver is working properly.

I've been having an odd issue with my speakers on my computer. After some perfectly fine use, playing music, games, etc, the left speaker suddenly stops putting out sound. Plugging in my ipod, both...


Intermittent problems are always the hardest to diagnose but I would start by going to the device manager and deleting the sound drivers. Then a reboot and as your machine restarts it will reinstall the soundcard drivers and if the game has corrupted the drivers that should your your problem. Should it continue you will need to find updated drivers for Windows 7.

Well they were completely delted and uninstalled from my computer where do i get the installation cd for the speakers or where can i download what's on the cd from the internet?


Howdy. Those speakers do not require drivers. Your speaker set up is dealt with in audio set up in most versions of windows and most Macs. Almost all speakers are plug and play now. If you are having audio issues, it is usually the sound card or sound drivers. To check for sound issues, you can use a sat of headphones to test the audio connection, it helps isolate the issue to either the speakers or the computer. If you still run into trouble, check back and we will get you going somehow:) Good luck.

NO SOUND FROM SPEAKERS


if this is an onboard sound card then you need to make sure that the jumper to enable it on the motherboard is in the correct position and its there ( sometimes when you get a motherboard they supply you with the jumper pin in a plastic bag but never actually install it so you will need to refer to your manual for this )

Also ensure its enabled in the bios / cmos.

If this is a dedicated sound card such as a PCI sound card then make sure the latest driver is installed and also finally ensure that the cable(s) are plugged into the correct ports ( generally green for audio out, pink for microphone and blue for line in which is generally used for if you want to connect a tape player or some external device to your computer and record from that excluding a microphone obviously )

If you are still having issues then I would test the speakers on a known working computer and if its still an issue then its down to the speakers or how the speakers are wired so if those are under warranty then get them replaced if not and they are old then maybe try and fix them yourself.

Install cd for monsoon


What makes you think you need special drivers for your Monsoon speakers? Do other speakers work properly when hooked up to your PC? Borrow a pair from somebody else if you don't have any other speakers you can try, and check. If they don't work either, Monsoon drivers are not your problem. I'm not saying nobody ever needs drivers for speakers to work with a computer, but normally, drivers for the speakers are not the issue if you're not getting sound through them.

The sound card driver and sound settings in BIOS, sound settings in Windows and for the sound card, and physical issues about the way the speakers are hooked up or whether the speakers themselves are functional are much more common sources of trouble than drivers for the speakers.

Start your troubleshooting process with this webpage:

If that one doesn't seem to address your issue, try websearching for other options with a phrase such as: troubleshoot no sound PC speakers.

5.1 surround not working


I uninstalled the previous audio software that the computer had. (Realtek HD audio) and turned off the onboard sound card in the BIOS settings. Then I went back and uninstalled all the new audio software and reinstalled it with all antivirus programs turned off. The main trick was to make sure that the matrix is turned off. If it is on it will play sound from all the speakers at once as if it were mono. Turning it off after changing the BIOS and uninstalling the old software and reinstalling the new allowed it to work properly. I hope this helps.

No sound


This issue could be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Sound card does not work
  2. Speakers are not connected properly
  3. No power to the speakers
  4. Volume on speakers turned down
  5. Volume on sound card turned down
  6. Bad hardware
  • make sure the speaker setup is correct. It is possible that during an installation of another program that the speakers software setup was changed causing issues with your sound. To do this follow the below steps.

  1. OpenControl Panel
  2. Open "Sounds and Multimedia Properties" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel.
  3. Click the "Audio" tab
  4. In the Audio tab click the "Advanced" button under "Sound Playback."
  5. In the Advanced Audio Properties window make sure your speaker setup is correct. If you're not sure what to set this setting as, set it to the default "Desktop Stereo Speakers" option.
  6. If you changed this setting click "Apply" and close out of all windows.
  • Ensure that the sound card works properly by connecting either another pair of speakers to the computer, or a pair of headphones.

  • the left speaker will generally have a cable that cannot be removed from it. This cable should be connected to the other speaker (generally this cable has no color or is white / gray). The next cable is the line out cable, it is generally green in color and should go from the right speaker to the line out hole in the back of your sound card.
  • Finally, the power cable generally should be connected to the back of the right speaker, or in some cases, the sub woofer. The power cable can vary; while most speakers are in the above configuration, some speakers may also not utilize a power cable connection but instead have batteries, while other speakers that connect to the side of your monitor may use a portion of the power from the monitor itself (via another type of cable).


  • Most speakers will have a small LED (light) indicating if the speaker is on. Verify that if this light is present that it is illuminated.
If no LED is seen or the speakers don't appear to be getting power, verify the power cable is properly connected to a working outlet or if your speakers use batteries that the batteries are good. Finally, most speakers can be turned on either by using a button or by moving the volume knob from left to right.


  • Verify that the volume knob on the speakers is properly turned up. If you are un-certain what direction to turn the knob, play a long sound file or CD and while the sound is being played, adjust the knob left to right or up to down.


  • The sound is also able to be turned up and down through the software installed on the computer. Verify the sound settings in the software are properly turned up.


  • Finally, if all of the above recommendations do not resolve your issue and connecting another pair of speakers or headphones to the computer does work, it is likely that the speakers are bad. It is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of the speakers or computer for a new replacement.

Loud and strange noises


The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.
