Make sure when you click on the speaker in the bottom right hand corner that your wav volume is also turned up or nothing will come out as well. and always plug speakers ect into green plugins on computers and speakers.

    well you can try this



    you can goto the speaker in the bottom right corner and click on adjust audio properties--->in the general tabe make sure nothing is muted in there and then go to the speaker volume on the bottom left and turn them up.----->next click on the audio tab--->make sure that sound playback is on the reltek ac97 audio



    Are your volume settings adjusted to an audible level?


    Your volume might be set too low, or audio might be muted.

    To check your volume settings


    1. Open Volume Control.
    2. Make sure that Mute all is not selected, and adjust the volume and balance controls to the levels you prefer.
    3. The controls in Volume Control are different for different sound devices. If any Mute check boxes except microphone input are checked, this might be the cause of your problem. Consult your sound device documentation or contact the manufacturer for more information.


    Note


    • To open Volume Control from the Start, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Entertainment, and then click Volume Control.

    Does sound come from your speakers after you adjust your volume settings?



    Are your speakers connected correctly?
    If your speakers have cable, check the following:


    • Is your power cord plugged into a working outlet?
    • Is your sound cable plugged into the appropriate jack on your sound device or computer?
    • Are your speakers connected to each other?
    • Are your speakers turned on and is the speaker volume control adjusted to an audible level?

    Different speaker sets have different cable configurations. Consult your speaker documentation to be sure of the correct configuration.

    Can you hear sounds after you connect your speakers?






    1. Open Device Manager.
    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers, right-click your sound device, and then click Properties.

      If you do not know the name of your sound device, consult the documentation that came with it.
    3. Under Device usage, make sure that Use this device (enable) is selected.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Restart your computer if you are prompted to do so.


    Note


    • To open Device Manager, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.


    1. Open Sounds and Audio Devices Properties in Control Panel.
    2. On the Audio tab, click your sound device in the Default device lists under both Sound Playback and Sound Recording


    1. Open Device Manager.
    2. Double-click Sound, video, and game controllers.
    3. Double-click your sound device.
    4. Click the Properties tab, and then double-click Audio Devices.
    5. Click your sound device, and then click Properties.
    6. Click Use audio features on this device.
    7. Click OK until you return to Device Manager.
    8. Restart your computer.

    To check for hardware conflicts and devices that are turned off


    1. Open Device Manager.
    2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers.
    3. Look for an exclamation point (!) in a yellow circle next to your sound device, or a red 'X'.

      • An exclamation point in a yellow circle indicates a hardware conflict. To troubleshoot this problem, go to the Hardware troubleshooter and click I need to resolve a hardware conflict on my computer, or contact your computer manufacturer for assistance.


        Important


        • If you go to the Hardware troubleshooter, you will leave the Sound troubleshooter.

      • A red "X" indicates that a device is turned off. Try turning the device on.


        To turn on a device




        1. In Device Manager, right-click the device marked with a red "X," and then click Properties.
        2. Under Device usage, select Use this device (enable) and click OK.
        3. Restart your computer.



        If turning a device on does not solve the problem, contact the device manufacturer for further instructions.

    If your computer has a motherboard sound device and not an expansion sound card, make sure your sound device is turned on in your BIOS



    if you are unsure of how to do this refer to your user manual for the abit motherboard or list the model of your computer here and I will try to locate the information for you.

My headset is not wireless. the built-in mic isnt working


Did you check it is inserted in the Mic socket and not Auxillary Inout which is the other socket on the back of your computer?

Also go to Control Panel/Sound and check that the settings don't have the microphone Muted. You can sometimes get to this location quicker if you have the speaker icon down on the right side of the screen by the clock. Just double click it.

Headset Microphone doesn't work


Plugged in? Is it a stereo plug? does your computer allow speaker and mic on the same wire? Does the outlet say Mic or Headset of Both? Had it worked in the past.

Some computers have a place for a mic - some for headset - some might have both. On a desktop, I would expect to find separate connections. Laptop, Id have to look.

A 'stereo' plug will have a tip, ring and barrel connection.

A 'mono' plug will have a tip and barrel connection only.

A stereo plug would allow a mic and head phone connection ujsing a 'common' for the return.

A mono plug would allow either a mic or a headset, not both.

If you could peer into the jack inside your computer, you could tell if it privides for three wire (stereo) or two wire (mono) operation.

I hope this helps ... If I missed your question, please reask.
