This could just be a simple driver glitch. Open the device manager, uninstall the sound drivers, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the sound settings. If this doesn't work, then then sound card is gone. On these models, the sound card is built into the motherboard. It can be changed, but takes a fairly high amount of technical skill and knowledge. Having the card changed on the C610 can be more expensive than replacing the motherboard. This being an older unit, you can find motherboards on Ebay at a fairly cheap price. Try the driver reload first, and let me know.

No speaker sound


There sometimes are three connectors on a sound card that are similar. A speaker output, microphone input, and stereo headphone output.

Try all three, if you accidentally put it on the microphone input you won't get sound output of that one, so try another.

Also, check in the speaker control panel for the sound to be checked to mute or volume turned all the way down.

Hi

Please can you advise if you have 2 sound cards installed

You will know this by looking at the back of the computer, the sound card wil have 3 ports coloured Purple/Dark Green and Light green

Your speaker connection needs to go into the light green and will have a symbol above it like this ))(left arrow)

If there are 2 sets of ports then try one and if that fails try the other if there is only one plug your speaker conneciton into the light green port

I have a hp 762c and the new speakers are not working, downloaded the drivers and still wont suspect the sound card has gone bad


If you have onboard sound, hook the speakers up to that. If you still get no sound, the speakers might be DOA.

If you get sound from that, try reseating your sound card or swapping it to a different slot.

On my G5 1.8 single processor PMac the sound is deteriorating; what may i do to fix it? I play the same CD in my home system and there is not distortion but there is in the Mac even when using headphones....


make sure the power coder is pulled before you do any thing.
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work

yes there is a way to replace the sound cards.but i don't think they deteriorate.it sounds like three things can
be wrong. one your speakers.your speakers could be at fault .two your cd drive.try a a pair of speaker
that are know to work.with the original drive.

if you can and aren't afraid of opening up your case wich you got to do
to replace anything.borrow a compatible cd drive frome someone that knows that it works fine
also borrow a pair of speakers that are known to work and
take the cords that are hook up to your and cd drive and hook them up to the borrowed drive. you can let
it dangle there instead of putting it in the tower . turn on your computer and wait about 5 min and then try the
cd.if the sound is good problem solved..

the last problem could be that your sound card is bad or a driver is not installed

The volume is too low on my computer speakers


Hi, Mark Here, see I can help.

The 1907 does not amplify your sound it will let you control the volume to some degree but not boost the incoming sound.

If you had amplified speakers b4 your sound card requires amplified speakers.

Best two options i can give is.
  1. If it is a desktop you can install a amplified sound card. Hook to monitor speaker.
  2. Unplug monitor speaker &use amplified speakers.
Just so you know laptops use internal amplified speakers. If you decide to install sound card make sure it is an amplified card.

Hope that fixed ya! know not the best news. Need more help comment back. Please Rate.
Good Luck!

I have hooked up my "plug and play" speakers and still have no sound. My computer keeps telling me that a disc is required. Please advise


Your speakers may be "plug and play" but it seems the sound card is not. You will need to note the sound card make and model and download and install the driver from the manufacturer's web site.

How to hook up Philips mms 321 to a laptop via usb


Hi,

I don't know of any interface that goes from speaker wires to USB. I think that we should go another way. You know soundblaster has many cards that will let you hook those speakers right up and its a very easy installation. I myself have Bose speakers hooked up to my soundblaster card and its wonderful. You can peruse the soundblaster cards here.
Its really easy to do and it will allow you to have great sound that you can configure for very high quality stereo.

I hope this helps. please remember to rate me.
