Make sure your volume is not on mute. If the speaker icon on your lower right has a red x means its on mute. To test go to control panel and double click sounds and test. If Windows sounds work without speakers then problem is with speakers. Make sure volume is up, make sure its properly connected to correct output jack (usually green or light green). Also make sure speaker power on. If those things are correct check your device manager ( right click my computer) select "manage", click on "device manager" and on right pane check to see if theres any yellow exclamation, question mark or red x on the sound device section. Yellow exclamation or question mark means to update or install correct drivers. Check your speaker box if it comes with a CD.

How to double check speaker hook up on asus desktop computer


maybe they have the volume muted. Check to make sure the volume is not muted and that the speakers are plugged into the light green port in the back of the computer.

Make sure the volume on the physical speakers are turned on and turned up. And make sure the volume in the Audio Sound Properties it turned up and not muted.

If you see the speaker megaphone at the bottom right near the time click on it to adjust the properties.

You can click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio properties.

Just bought a new emachine computer with speakers, but the speakers do not work. They are plugged in and still no sound, volume set. ?????


Windows has a habit of muting the sound. Please click open the Volume icon from the right bottom corner of the screen. It is shaped like a big speaker. Unmute everything to get sound from the speakers.

I just rebooted my computer but i have no sound?


When you bought the computer and the sound on board, came with it, so did a disk that contained the sound software and driver for the motherboard. You need to reinstall both using that motherboard disk.     If you did not receive the disk, then you need to contact them for it.  Your other ooption is to buy a PCI soundcard, like Soundblaster that wil come with everything you need.  http://www.ibuypower.com/

It's usually the green plug that you hook up speakers to. If you look closely at the sound card area of your computer, you will see little pictures telling you which one is for the mike, line in & speaker.

Speakers Dont Work


Hi Matt, 
You might want to do these following steps.
1. Right click my computer and go to manage 2. Click on Device manager on the left side of the window 3. Look for Sound, Video and Game Controllers and you should be seeing at least a driver for your audio. It might be a SoundMax or Realtek depending on the type of system.  If it doesn't show, you may need to install them. What is the brand of your computer and its model?

Sound Problems


To make it easy for you this is the default audio driver for Dimension 2400 systems. Click on this link ---> http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=122481
this would install your integrated audio driver for your system.
Let me know if this resolved this issue.

No Sound


did you install anything before this problem started? if yes try to uninstall it. if not, check device manager if your sound card drivers is still installed and if it is enabled. to go to device manager right-click Computer then click Manage. look for device manager then sound.

if it's enabled and there are no problems to the sound card go to control panel then Hardware and Sound. click on sound then check if the default digital output device is selected and enabled.

if it still won't work last option is do a system restore. set the restore date before the time the problem happens.

Might be trivial, but try the volume controls, that little speaker icon on the Windows task bar.
