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.

Check your audio cable, especially near jacks. Check power cable. Try to install latest audio drivers. Choose the correct audio output device in Windows.

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

Sound low

There are several audio settings on the system that you can increase the volume from. You have one that is by the lower part of the system, it used to be like a tuning fork, some have theirs by the top of the keyboard by the switch, while some have theirs by the side of the system.

First you need to check the audio settings from your computer, by clicking on the speaker icon that is on the task bar of the system, then you increase it from there. Or you click on the speaker icon on the task bar then click on the mixer, then you increase all the volume you will see in the mixer settings. It will show you the operating systems volume, the systems volume and other sound systems volume on the system.

After doing that, the sound of the operating system will be high.

I dont have any sound coming out from my speekers but the speekers work because we tryed them on another computer. what do i do? rebecca

Have you checked with headphones in the same port? Is it possible you've selected "Mute"? Check the System Tray near the clock in the lower right hand corner of your screen and make sure there's not a red circle next to the little speaker icon.

My computer will no longer play music or any kind of noise

Check that your speakers are plugged into the right jack either in your sound card or the sound panel on the motherboard. If no sound then try plugging speakers into another computer and see if they are working and have power. Go to "control panel" and click on "Sound and Audio Devices" and under the volume tab under Device Volume make sure that the "Mute" box isn't checked. Also check the "place Volume icon in the taskbar" box if it isn't already checked. Go to the Volume control on the task bar and check out the audio volume levels and make sure they're not turned all the way off. Also under "Sound and Audio Devices" underl Volume tab click on "Advanced" and make sure that you have selected the proper kind of speakers in the speaker setup box.

YOu didn't say so, so I'm assuming that you're using Windows XP. If you're not the menus may be a little different but similar.
