How to troubleshoot sound cracking up windows xp?

Since you are using Windows xp don't see any problems with driver for the sound card, it is probably the speakers. have you try ear phones?
if it is still the same then the sound controller is defective. There is also the possibility that there is some corruption in the OS or virus infection.
If you can borrow or buy with intention to return a USB sound card that will give you some solution. I could give you more scenarios but i think this will give you an idea on what to do next.

No sound from speaker but through ear piece I get sound.

Many devices will automatically switch off the large speaker when ear phones are plugged into them. Also there may be a switch or button or prompt on your radio to switch between regular speaker and ear phone jack. Look for that first.
Try connecting and disconnection ear phones while listening to a station and see if the problem is intermittent. If is works sometimes but not every time then it is most likely an internal connection.
You will have to access the inside of the radio to investigate further. Connect a working external music or sound source with speaker wire to the terminals inside the radio that connect to the radio's speaker. If the radio's speaker works with the external sound source then you know it is a bad connection inside your radio. If the radio's speaker does not work with the external sound source then it is most likely a faulty radio speaker. Look closely for a broken solder point or broken/disconnected wire.

At work I have a HP LE1901wm monitor and an HP Compaq tower. I went on holidays and my fill in some how managed to stop sound from coming out of the monitor and now it comes out of the tower, which is...

at work CALL "IT" get them busy , let them earn their pay?
you have monitors at work that old,?whooo....hooo
no PC stated, desktop of some kinds
we dont run XP here in USA< less than 1% falling like brick
why run XP the virus magnet, with up to 700 exploits>?
endless risk there.

plug the monitor into the green jack.
if that fails try head phones on the green 3.5mm jack
if that works in 1 second flat, then the PC is ok.
if not the PC is messed up. even $1 dollar store ear bud test.
is this hard? no.
so what is wrong. only can be these things (2: HW or SW)
i this case its HW, after all windows works.
but NO PC stated, making answers wrong.
some sound cards and chips and many HP PC have the speaker switch run by software.
what happens when you plug in head phones the switch inside
switches and this is digital switch not analog.

that means the software in the PC, must be correct if earbuds work.
if the budes fail. then its XP messed up.
but tell me where do you get XP software for XP not MS? they shut down 3 years ago... leaves yah where.? your unstated PC maker.
if HP is the maker they too drop support on XP'

why run XP, upgrade to w7 and end the pain.
the pain will increase at a greater rate now
after all say you plug in new USB device, and no XP support most makers of devices do not support XP now.
pain unending and increasing from now one, or 3 years ago forward.

what PC?
they ear buds what do they do. or 3.5mm jack real head phones
do they work. always keep ear buds handy.
if the buds work the monitor is messed up
did yo know many monitors have sound volume button.
after all the monitor speakers have an ampifier iniside
and must have a volume pair of buttons
or in the monitors menu, OSD marked the same.

Bold 9000 only rings through the ear piece when it is connect. Does ring when disconnected to ear piece. When ear piece is not in my ear, I can not hear the phone ring.

Hi, what makes it when disconnected to ear piece. When ear piece is not in my ear, you can not hear the phone ring is because the ringer of the phone that makes you know when there is an incoming call on your cell phone or a message alert tone on your cell phone is damaged and does not work and makes sound to notify you .

The ringer is a tiny speaker inside the cell phone that allows you to hear incoming call from your cell phone You will need to replace the ringer inside the cell phone ....

When you replace with another ringer (speaker inside the cell phone),phone will be Ok again.

Would advice that you contact an expert in phone repairs for asistance,that will do you good to prevent more damaged on the phone...

Take care.....

Ear speaker not when slide is off.when on its working

Hi, What controls the ear speaker of Nokia 6280is the flex of the phone.
The flex is connected to the board of the phone and it also allows the screen to display. It flex enables the ear speaker to function. So what will make the ear speaker work better is too replace the flex of the phone because it's weak .
After replacing the flex, every thing will work normal.

Take care.

Flip up ear speaker stopped working

Sounds like the ear piece connection between the two halves of the phone has been broken. Your "speaker phone" function should still work because the sound comes from the back of the main body of the phone. To the best of my knowledge, this can't be fixed. You will need a new phone. I hope this helps.
