By power box do you mean power supply? if so then the fan inside your power supply is probably clipping something as it rotates. I would suggest replacing it because if its not the fan then its failing. If you dont mean power supply just your PC, then it would be the same, a loose wire or something is rubbing one of the fans inside the case, either a cooling fan or the cpu fan.

My Sony Vaio PCV-RX860 won't boot and makes a clicking sound.


It's usual that new desktop PC's have fans sounds and keyboard LED's flashing during booting..There's nothing wrong on that, as long as you can get in to your PC OS.

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.


Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

The loudspeaker of my pc does not have sound the rest of options are working properly the sound valume and the icons shows without problem


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers

Have an emachines e550 does not play sound


You need to go to "control panel, than to "system properties", than to "device manager", ( than to "hardware" if you are using windows XP)

Click on "sound". If you do not see any "red X's" than your sound drivers are working fine.

After that, check your sound cord and power cord. Verify your sound is not muted or turned down.

Speakers are not working


Hi,
Double check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack connection in the back of your computer
Double check to make sure they are plugged into electrical power.
Check your sound settings by clicking on the small speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop. Make sure they are turned UP and enabled.

Go into control panel/sounds and multi media
Click on the AUDIO TAB at the top, check to make sure those boxes state what device your sound is supposed to be using.
If they are blank or grayed out, it means your sound drivers are not properly installed. You must then reinstall them.
One of these options will fix the problem.
Thank you and good luck.

Hi i have some problem in my pc idont have sounds in my pc please help me


Do a right click on the volume icon in the lower right side of your screen. Now click open volume control.
Make sure nothing is muted and all levels are at their highest.
Next click on options at the top left of the volume control box and select Properties.
Select the correct mixer device from the drop down menu and select playback.
make sure all the boxes in the bottom are checked and click OK.
Now make sure all the levels are max and no Mute box is checked.
Should work now.
If you still do not have sound, try reinstalling the sound card drivers. If that also does not work, it could be that you will need to replace your sound card..
Hope this helps...good luck!
