No sound on my laptop gateway ne56r41u


Have you tried all of the following:
1. Try playing sound from more than one program
2. Make sure your computer is not muted (look for the speaker icon in the taskbar)
3. Restart the computer
4. Plug in earphones and see if those work. (this can help diagnose what the problem is).

I have a CT5803 Dell Sound Card with 4 intermal pinsets, I need to hook Up speaker to speaker out and need information about its use!


16 bit sound cards usually have 3 pin out or jack on the card, one is line in, one is line out and one is for the mic.

the line out is used for your computer speakers, plug in the green colored jack from your speaker into the line out jack and you hear whatever your playing on your computer, ie: music TV or internet broadcasts. You may have to set up the device or software settings that you are using before it properly gets the sound to go through your speakers. Some compatible or Creative Labs emulator cards have five pin outs, these are for a more sophisticated sound system like 5.1 or higher. These jacks have 3 outgoing jacks. One for center speaker then one for front and one for rear. a 6.1 system card may have a side speaker out jack also.


The CT5803 is a Creative card that was made by Creative Labs for Dell, it typically has 3 jacks. one for your speakers to plug into one for your mic to plug into and one for you to plug into an inbound sound source **** as an MP3 player. If this is not what you are talking about please re post your question and possibly clarify the information that you are trying to obtain.

Check the basics first :
1. Are the speakers plugged into the mains
2. Are the speakers plugged into the computer
3. Make sure the volume on the speakers is not turned off.
4. Make sure the volume icon in windows is not on mute.
5. Is the soundcard driver installed correctly
If you need help with this please let me know make and model of computer and which operating system you are running.

I bought a creative (inspire M4500) 4.1 speaker system. but only 2 speakers work at a time.. do i need a 4 channel sound card. which one will be compatible with compaq presario V6000 laptops.


Obviously you require a 4.1 system audio/sound card for the best sound output since it has inbuilt amplifier and OS specific driver(latest) which you should get along with the sound card. If you are using, check compaitibility issues to with Vista....................sodeep

Sound from only 2 of 4 speakers


Use the software that came with the card and make sure that it knows what you are using. Which would be "4CH Speaker". If this doesnt work, open Control panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume> Device Volume advanced and from the options menu make sure that none of the 4 speakers are muted.

I have a creative sound speakers and model SBS10, but I cannot hear sound on my pc....it is working on other pcs with a good sound output..


You need to Reinstall the Drivers for these speakers. Under your Sound Setting Under Control Panel, Make sure that you have the Right Set up Selected. 2 Speakers, 3,4, 5.1, 7.1, ETC.
