Dontno sound on speakers


Make sure the speaker cable from the speaker is connected to the speaker plug on the machine, usually green. If the speakers have an AC adapter make sure it is plugged into the wall outlet and to the speaker. Make sure the sound card is configured and working correctly. Make sure you don't have the sound muted. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a great day.

My speakers are not working


Step 1
If no sound is coming from the computer, start troubleshooting your problem. Make sure both your computer and speakers are plugged in, have power, and are turned on. If the speakers are plugged in but do not appear to have any power, plug them into a different outlet. If you are using a power strip and this is case, replace the power strip. Some speakers are self powered and use a USB cable to supply power. Make sure that the USB cable of your speakers is connected securely to the USB port of your computer.

Step 2
Once you have verified that you have power to your speakers, test the sound again. If you still do not have any sound, make sure the cable connecting the speakers to the computer (known as a 1/8" TRS cable) is plugged into the green audio output jack on the PC.

Step 3
Before we move to software, let's try two more hardware fixes. If you are using self-powered USB speakers, remove the USB cable and plug it into a different USB port. If you are using outlet powered speakers and have a working set handy, replace the non-working speakers with the working pair to test. If you still have nothing, let's move on to software. But one tip first: (for geeks and beginners)

Step 4
As it is with any troubleshooting process, the issue can sometimes come down to the hardware itself. If you have an add-on sound card and none of the hardware or software fixes helps, you may have to replace the sound card. If you use on-board sound, it will probably pay to purchase an inexpensive sound card rather than a new motherboard. If you've been messing around in the BIOS, you may have disabled your on-board sound if that's what you're using. If you don't know what BIOS means, you probably haven't been there and can move on.

Step 5
Go to your desktop. Click Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab. If everything is grayed out, go to step 8. If the "Mute" box is checked, un-check it. In "Device Volume" make sure that your volume level is set to a comfortable volume level for your speakers.

Step 6
Click the "Sounds" tab. Under "Sound Scheme" check to see if "No Sounds" is selected. If it is, click "Sound Schemes" and a drop down list will appear. Select "Windows Default" as the scheme. To test your sound now, click on a sound listed below the "Program Events" window. These will be indicated by a small speaker icon located next to them. Simply left click the sound once, then click the play button. If you hear sound, congratulations. If not, move on.

Step 7
Click the "Audio" tab. Under the "Sound Playback" option, make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device. Usually, only one device appears here, unless you have multiple playback devices installed.

Step 8
If everything is grayed out, you either do not have a playback device installed or your drivers are corrupted and need to be replaced. Drivers help hardware and software function together. Try this fix for reinstalling drivers. Click Start > Right-click "My Computer" > select "Properties" from the drop-down menu > Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. Device Manager will open.

Step 9
Look for either a red X or a yellow question mark listed under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" If you have a red X, right click the device with the x and select "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Test your sound at this point. If you have a yellow question mark, right click the device, click "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and then click the "Driver" tab on the window that appears. Now, click the button "Roll Back Driver" to go back to the previous drivers that were functioning correctly. Restart your computer at the prompt.

Step 10
As a last resort, you can uninstall and reinstall the device. Right click the device and select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. Restart your computer. Windows will automatically detect and install your audio device upon boot-up. If after doing all of the steps, listed here and you still cannot hear any sound from your computer speakers, contact a qualified computer technician.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

I can't heard no music why?


Several possibilities come to mind: speakers have failed (self-powered speakers have bad power brick, cable damaged, etc), speakers plugged into the wrong port (audio in instead of audio out), audio card or driver has failed.

If you recently had to restore your OS (or do a roll-back to a "known" good configuration), check your audio device (make and model) and make sure you have the latest driver installed. (Look at the website for your computer if it is a prebuilt system or look up your motherboard if it is an on-board audio device.) The device manager might have a yellow exclamation mark on the audio device if this is the issue (access from the Windows Control Panel)

Check for bad speakers by trying another set of speakers or plugging them into another computer. (Swap cables if that is possible.)

I hope this helps.

I just bought the eMachine ET1831-07. I plugged


Hi

Thank you for your query

The sound issue could be down to several issues

Please try the following

1) Ensure that the speakers are plugged into the right port the port at the back of the Pc will be a light green colour and on closer inspection will have this symbol >))

2) If it is in the right port click on the following Start>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices. In here ensure that the volume is not muted

I believe 1 of these 2 should cure the problem

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

Samsung SyncMaster 204bw....keeps going black every now and then with the power light flashing, i don't understand what is wrong with it :S please help?? i have to restart my system everytime...


Similar problem with Samsung Syncmaster T260 at 1920x1200 on HIS Radeon X1950XTX video card. Black horizontal stripes lasting 1/60th of a second or so every few seconds, then black screen for 2 seconds, then fine again.

I Set the catalyst control center control panel for the graphics card to Alternate DVI operational mode under the Digital panel attributes item. Setting the screen to 1600x1200 also seems to stop it doing this. BUT...it didn't used to do it. Bought it in November, and it didn't start doing this until late January. Go figure.
