Question about Computers & Internet
There are two kind of sound devices that can be inside a pc:
- Integrated on board ( in your motherboard).
- Sound card ( a card that is plugged in one of the motherboard slots).
To be sure if you have any, check the all the connectors, the sound one is a miniplug jack( small hole in which your headphones plug will fit).
you will usually find three of this:
- Audio out ( here you will plug your speakers)
- Mic ( this one is for Microphone)
- Aux ( auxiliary- used as input for something like a walkman, etc).
If you don't have any ( rare if you have a modern pc)
you will have to find out themake and model of your motherboard
and post it.
If you have any installed, you will need to install a software called " Sound driver " for that specific device, in order to make it work.
you can find the software in one of the CDs you get usually with the computer when you buy it.
If you don't have that CD, to find that driver you need to know the kind, model and manufacturer of that device.
you can post here that info and ask for help or if you have the integrated one, you should visit the motherboard manufacturer website.
For the card go to the card manufacturer website or do a google search, there are sites where you can get the drivers(the last applies for the motherboard too.)
Hope this help you.
