Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

No sound from speakers

Acelapage: Thanks for the quick reply. I did check out the speakers and they work OK. Also cllicked on the speaker icon in task bar to get the volume controls. All are full up or on HIGH. I had this problem before and fixed it - of course I have no idea what I did. There are speaker(s) in the LCD screen and 2 others attached by USB wire. Its the wire ones that are out. Screen type will not work and have not for some time. Sadly the system restore point does not go back far enough. I'll just have to press on. Thanks again. Ace

No problem. In the meantime, I've forwarded your post to a friend of mine who is an IT administrator and network guy. Hopefully I'll hear back shortly and I'll post what he says.

I get picture on Viber laptop, but no sound. How do I get speakers to work and where can I find the speakers.


Check to see if you a speaker icon in the lower r/h side of the task-bar down by the clock.
If the icon is not there right click on a blank area of the task-bar and left click 'properties'
Left click 'customize'
Scroll down to 'Volume' and select 'Show icon and notifications "
Click 'OK'
Close the 2 properties pop-ups.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices'
The 'sound' pop up will appear showing whatever you have connected ( speakers or headset etc)
Make sure the speakers are set as default if you have more than one sound device connected.
The speakers should have a green tick (check ) when they are ready to use
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'Open volume mixer"
Check that the volume slider is above 50% and the speakers are not muted (shown as a red no-entry sign on the speaker icons at the bottom of the sliders' If muted click on the slider speaker icon.
Right click on the speaker icon and select 'playback devices' Put the cursor on the blue graph to the right of the icon, right click and select 'test' All being well the computer speakers will respond.

Maybe this is a foolish question, but are you positive the speakers work? Can you test them on another machine?

No sound on speakers


Do you get sound through the headphones, if yes! buy electronic contact cleaner and flush the earphone jack, working the plug back and forth as you spray the jack, hopefully that will bring the sound back through the main speakers, if no! check speaker icon in lower right "task bar"does it have a red stripe going through it, if yes! locate the speaker icon from F1 to F12, when you find it, press and hold Fn key and press F key that the speaker icon is on, should restore sound.

IBM thinkpad type 2647 - after installing external


Go to control panel / sounds / audio, and see if the boxes have greyed out writing, if so then the driver needs reloading, if they are all good check all settings.

Meant to ask if volume control icon is showing in the right lower task bar.

My speakers wont wo


Hi Jennifer,

When did sound work fine last time ??
Did you make any specific changes ??
Check if it is set to mute... if it is unmute it..

To unmute it-- you can click the little icon at the task bar at the bottom of your screen -- clear the box and see if it works..

If everything seems ok do the following :--

Go to control panel - click on sound devices option - see if all the options are greyed out -- if it is then you need to reinstall the sound drivers ..

You can let me know your computer model number and i'll paste a link for you so that you can download the driver...

Thanks..

No sound from speakers


Hi,
Usually you can see the speaker icon found at your task bar right side if the sound driver was installed. If not better re-install your sound drive.

Good day!
Please check the cord of the speaker if it is inserted at the right socket of your unit, or was the audio driver was installed? check if you see a speaker icon at the task bar. If you see an icon (speaker) maybe the speaker was not activated, double click that speaker icon, then, see if the volume was check, or other options, if none click options, properties, try other options by checking the box.
Thanks hope can solve your problem.
