Try looking at Start>Control Panel (Win XP) and the double-click on Sounds. Check the settings to see if they have been muted. If it is checked then uncheck the box and you should have sound. If unchecked then the volume may simply be all the way down. If neither of those then you may have a device problem. To check in XP goto Start>Control Panel. Double-click on System and then click on the Hardware tab. Click Device Manager and see if you have a question mark by Sound Category. If you do try removing by right-clicking and choose remove. Reboot your computer after this to see if your computer will reinstall the sound card.

Grandchildren playing on computer/keyboard and now have no sound did they turn something off?


With some multimedia keyboards, it's easy to mute or turn down the volume from the keyboard. Many Systemax systems ship with this type of keyboard. The volume controls are usually at the top of the keyboard or on the right or left side of the keyboard.

However, since there are a number of different styles of multimedia keyboards, I'm not sure which key you would need to find. Look for a key with the speaker symbol (looks like a megaphone). Also look in the bottom right corner of the computer screen for the same symbol. If there is a red circle with a line, then the mute has been enabled. Otherwise, it may be that the volume was reduced. With a mouse it's easy to change the setting; just left click on that symbol in that section of the notification bar.

In some cases, speakers do fail. So if changing the volume doesn't work, try a different set of speakers.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your keyboard or Systemax computer model if you need additional assistance.

Theres no sound ccoming form my computer


On the back of your computer there are three input holes. The speaker wire connector should be green. Match up the the green conector with the green input on the back of the computer. You should now have sound coming from the speaker. If you still do not have sound then you need to make sure you have installed the driver for the sound card. Your speakers should have come with a disk that will have the driver on it.

Good Luck

Sound


Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double click the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and the Volume bar is at least 1/2 way on the Volume tab. Also click the Speaker Volume tab and adjust the sound there as well if needed. You might also want to check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" icon so you can easily adjust the sound settings next time.

My volume on my computer dose not work could you help me i have a windows vista


goto where taskbar is and double click on the a silver ball or speaker looking button and that should pull up the volume mixer. now if the speaker or ball in the right bottom hand corner of the screen has a red circle with and slash throught it - that means its muted and unmute your speakers through the volume mixer. if there is no red circle the turn the volume up and you should hear sound. if you see none to those - them you may need to check if your speakers r intalled. also - make sure your external speakers are pluged into the green jack in the back of your computer
