Hi.

Hope this would help.

Is the power LED on? If no check power cable , check on/off switch check your power outlet. OF none of these work replace your speaker.

Did you try plugging a dift. speaker,did it work ? if NO then its your device/ equipment issue.

You did not mentionif this is for your PC. Assuming that it is connected to your PC and we didnt resolve it on the steps porvided above then lets move on to the next steps below:

Check if your computer has installed sound driver. Lets say you are using win xp or vista . To check your sound driver :

StarT > control panel { classic view } > system > hardware > device manager. In this windows pane are lists of your systems devices. Check under device manager > audio if theres a RED X, if yes > right click and choose Enable. If a yellow question / exclamation mark means a conflict on your system . Could be no driver installed or its not compatible to your system .

You didnt mention what computer model / brand you are using. so might as well check it out and let us know then.

You can follow windows help and support by pressing F1 on your desktop or going through start > help and support.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you need more assistance.

Cheers.

External speakers won't work on HP T5570e Thin Client


Try to use earphones, plug them in to phone audio connector....
try if it works..... if so, disconnect them and plug speakers.... and try again.... if doesn't work, go to audio advanced setup and check if speakers are not muted, or set up voicevolume level is too low. Play with that setup....

Also some computers can turn on or off speakers in Bios.

If problem will not be solved, try to use USB speakers

I can't hear any sound


There area number of different reasons why your computer may no longer give sound. Ifyou have this problem, read on to learn how to diagnose the problem and resolveyour PC's loss of sound.
Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
  1. Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound
  2. Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.
  3. Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
  1. Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
  2. Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  3. Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.
  4. Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  5. Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

Dell Dimension 4700 PC Speaker No Sound


Check to make sure all cables are connected. After this you will need to click on your sound card properties and set it to 5.1. which will allow all the speakers to play.

Please note you will need to have a card that supports 5.1 sound I do not believe the stock card in the Dell supports this feature which could be the problem.

External speakers don't work but internal speaker works fine.


Try your speakers on another system to make sure speakers are working.

Make sure volume control on PC is not set on mute.

Make sure onboard sound is enabled in BIOS

Try re-installing the sound card driver.

If all this fails and you have a spare slot on your PC just purchase a new sound card for about $10.00 or so.

Power getting to laptop but it won`t switch on


I am giving you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.

Method (Power cycle)

You need to remove the battery, adapter and any other device connected to the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet or speakers or external mouse/keyboard).

Nothing should be connected at all.

Now Press and hold the power button for 25 seconds (It wont show anything). This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.

Now connect the battery and the adapter and check whether it works or not.

Let me know the response as well.

Hope this should help

Regards
Sammy
