Question about Labtec Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hello, I recently installed a wireless router on my desktop home computer. Immediately upon installing the router, my Labtec desktop speakers quit producing sound. The speakers do work on another computer, I have used troubleshotting options on my computer, at Microsoft.com, and Microsoft Mr. Fix It to resolve the problem and still have no sound. I do not feel comfortable opening a computer and checking the sound card. Can you help? Thank you, Kathy

    What is the make and model number of the wireless device that you installed on your computer?

    Thanks for the advice-I have done all of what you mentioned. It sounds like I'll need to step out of my comfort zone and checkout the sounds card....

Hmmm.. sounds like assignments got crossed/reassigned possibly when the router was installed.

Have you looked down the list of System Hardware (control panel) to see if you have any Exclamation Marks that indicate a problem to look at?

Have you looked at the settings on the speakers in the computer? i.e. mute, equalizers, volume sliders, and even some audio software differentiates between the different connections on the back and front of your computer. Try clicking or right-clicking on the little speaker in your system tray (the icons at the end of the Start bar).. you may even have an icon in there for an audio program that you want to check out.

You can try a previous restore point, but pay special note of anything you've installed or changed since that time.

Just installing software for the router shouldn't necessitate opening up the computer, although an old tactic would be to pull the sound card out and reseat it back into the slot. Since you don't want to do that, I don't think you're missing anything unless you bumped it by accident when you were attaching the cable to the router. Since it was "immediate" I would be focused on software issues as you indicate.

You might even check out the support for the Labtec website rather than the MS route you've taken already.

Good luck!!

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

Cannot Network printers on FIOS system


If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

Labtec wireless desktop.


Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.
