If your computer came with a motherboard disk the sound drivers could be on it
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or
control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound video and game controllers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers
or
you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed

you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the driver and the sound devices
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers or right click select properties to either troubleshoot,uninstall,rollback driver

SOURCE: I don't hear any sounds

I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

The first thing to check is that the speaker wire is connected to the correct audio input. On most computers this is the light green port.
The next logical step would be to check the device manager to see that the audio drivers are operating properly. The navigation to the device maniger differs depending on what version of window you have. The most common way to access it is by right clicking on the my computer icon on your desktop and selecting properties. Then click on where it says device manager. in older versions of window you will have to click on the hardware tab before you will see the device manager option. From here you'll want to look for the sound or audio icon and click on the plus sign to the left (The sound icon looks like a small speaker). If there is a exclamation point or a red x over the driver listed than you will want to reinstall or update the audio drivers. You can locate all drivers required for your computer from the manufactures web site. If reinstalling the drivers does not work you may need to replace you sound card.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

I have pc Hp compaq dc 7100 ultra slim, the sound card not working even I installed driver of card but the sound card not working yet.


Hello, was the sound working before, i would like to know

1. Your sound card might be disabled from the bios. Restart your computer and quickly press F2, F10 or Delete button to get into the bios to check.
2. Un-install your sound card driver completely and then re-install
3. Your sound may be disabled from within windows, check for the speaker icon on your taskbar and if the slider works.
4. Another hardware on your computer is conflicting with your sound card. Have you installed any recent hardware or software? if so remove them and see if it solves the problem

Make sure the speakers are hooked up properly and also that the sound card drivers are installed, you can verify this by going into the device manager. The main speaker wire has to be hooked up to the output of the computer sound card.

If the sound card drivers are installed and the speakers are hooked up properly and your still not getting sound, try the speakers on another computer that you know has sound. If the speakers work then its a sound card driver issue on the original computer. If the speakers don't work on another computer then you know the speakers are bad.

I plugged my speakers in to the sound card and it


Hello!
You must try 2 options.
Try uninstall sound card drivers, reset comp., and again install sound driver.
In second case you must try new system, with full format hard drive, because you can have trouble with virus, and that is only safe way.
You can also try another sound card, but I think that is you sound card OK.

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:
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000034.htm

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.

No auto output devise installed


You'll want to check your Device Manager to verify that it sees a sound card installed. This can be done by right clicking the "My Computer" icon, and selecting manage. Now on the left side, click device manager. Scroll down on the right side to the sound entries. Verify that none of the icons have a yellow exclamation mark next to them. If they do, then windows is having trouble finding drivers or possibly having troubles with another card conflicting with it. If this is the case, then you can go to hp.com (I know you have a compaq, but HP is compaq now), and click search for drivers. Input your computer model number, and locate the audio drivers. Then just reinstall them.

Let me know if I can clarify this any more,
