If you are having problems with your sound
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Is there a driver I can download from somewhere for the Harman Kardon computer speakers system Model HK695-01?

Speakers themselves don't need drivers. The sound card however does. you will either have a sound card in your motherboard or one plugged in on your motherboard. 9 times out of 10 checking the optional section of windows update will contain your sound drivers needed. If it does tick it to install them. If not you need to find either your motherbaord manufacturer and model or sound card manufactorer and model, go to their website and download the latest drivers.

Good luck.

My NEC computer sound did not com on windows 7

Try installing the latest driver. If your computer used to work great (sound), then updating the sound driver should do the thing. You can find the driver in the website of the computer's manufacturer. However, if you want to make sure that you can get the correct driver, then you can use RadarSync to scan your computer for outdated drivers. The software will then automatically search for the latest updates. You can Google for the suggested drivers and install or you can buy the license to let the software update all automatically.

I hope this helps!
