    I seem to have the same problem. My speakers were working and all of a suddent they stopped. The green light on my right speaker is now out. I checked my connection to the PC and it's fine. They came with my Dell so I think the software was already loaded. They have worked fine for 3 years. I wonder if they're shot, the wire is bad, or what else might be going on. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    You'll have to repost what you've done so far and how you checked the integrity of the connector from one speaker to the other and the connector from your powered speaker to your PC and what sound card you are using or if onboard audio what MB and what sound driver onboard.

    So, what you've check in Volume control for balance and what you've checked in sound settings within control panel and what you see in Device Manager for your legacy audio driver.

    Thanks,
    Worldvet

How to diagnose and fix sound problem for a desktop or a laptop


Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary
Step 1
If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Step 2
Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Step 3
Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
Step 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.

Step 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."

Step 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.

Step 4
Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.

Step 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.

Can't find the hands free speaker button


In an increasingly hands-free world, the external speaker feature of cell phones has increased the usability of cell phonesmag-glass_10x10.gif in the car, public transportation and at work. The volume controls on the external speaker controls can be somewhat difficult to find and manipulate.
  1. Step 1 Make sure the speaker setting is actually on. If the speaker is turned to off, the volume you hear will be coming from the earpiece and will be very low indeed. Sometimes there is a button on a cellphone which you can simply press and hold to activate the speaker function. You will notice a difference immediately.
  2. Step 2 Check to see if you have external volume controls. On some models, there is a button or two buttons that adjust the volume of both the handset and the speaker volume. If you have these buttons, use them to adjust these controls while on calls. Remember that adjusting the speaker volume will subsequently adjust the handset volume once you've turned off the speaker mode.
  3. Step 3 Access the sound controls in your phone. If your phone does not have external speaker control, it can be accessed by adjusting the controls saved on your phone. Also, the main settings can be controlled even if you do have external controls. Phones are different, but in your menu of options, choose sound and sound controls. This should give you options for ring volume, alarm volume and handset volume.
  4. Step 4 FInd volume controls for all settings. If you wish yo have multiple settings for each function---alarm, calls and speaker---you should be able to adjust these accordingly. Search through the control options until you've found speaker controls. Choose the setting you desire and save the settings.
  5. Step 5 Using the main volume as a foundation, use the external controls (if applicable) to adjust the levels.

I cant get my speakers on my computer to work


Computer speakers are specially designed for a computer desktop environment. They are smaller than normal stereo speakers and often have built in volume controls and amplifiers. In most cases, you can plug in your computer speakers and have them work immediately. Occasionally, however, you will need to adjust your computer sound settings to get them to work correctly.
  1. Step 1 Plug your speakers into each other. Most PC speakers have a detachable cord that goes between them. Powered speakers have a cord that plugs into the wall, which may be detachable as well.
  2. Step 2 126401_thumb.jpg Image Courtesy of: http://www.hardware.windowsreinstall.com/soundcards.htm Look at the sound card output in the back of your computer. If your soundcard has three colored jacks, plug into the green one. If it does not have colored jacks, plug into the one next to the jack with the picture of a microphone. Plug the power supply into a wall socket.
  3. Step 3 Turn on the speaker, turn up the speaker volume and play some music. If it doesn't work, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Turn your volume up on whatever media player you are using. If the music still doesn't play, continue to step 5.
  5. Step 5 Go to the volume settings. If you are using windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif, click Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control.
  6. Step 6 Adjust the volume settings. Use your mouse to drag the main "Volume Control" slider and the "Wave" slider all the way to the top. If either of them have the "Mute" box checked, uncheck it. Try the sound again.

Compaq wf 1907 monitor speakers--no sound


No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer


This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows .

Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.


    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.

Cannot seem to calibrate.


Go to Control Panel, open device manager, and and check for any yellow checks for your
sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external manually. You can adjust volume there..
