I just got a new video card and remved all the cords then pluged it back in then the sound says no audio output detected what do i do?


Video Cards do not interact with audio, so somewhere in the process you may have dislodged or incorrectly reinstalled your sound card or wires connecting your motherboard. Check to make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound panel on the back of the PC, also open the computer and make sure that the sound card (if you have one) is securely fastened into the motherboard.

Sound


More than likely, your sound card is hard soldered to your motherboard.  Look on the back of the computer where you plug your speakers and microphone in.  That's your sound card.

Do you have a problem, why you need to find where it is?

I want installed sound device in my computer


Turn off your computer, unplug it from the back of the computer. Now take off the side the computer, look on the back and find your old Sound Card. Now ground out your hands by touching something metal before you reach inside your computer. Now remove the old Card and install your new one, reboot and the computer will ask you to install the new software for the Sound Card or it will find it for you.....good luck.

EMachine T2862 has no sound


If your computer does indeed have a Sound Card, then the drivers for this card are not working. Try reinstalling from the driver disk you got with your computer and see if the sound comes back.

Color coded plugs for on the back of computer


Yes, in fact, you have a nicer (newer) sound card as opposed to the single channel types of the past. This type of card will work with the surround sound speakers for computers, as long as it's functioning properly.

No sound


it is easy to find whether in your compute has sound card or not... just check backside of the computer... if there is sound port besides default port then . you also can open (unscrew) the computer and can check whether the card is inserted into the soundcard slot or not... easy way

if this didn't work you can follow thee following steps..

Step11 Check the front or back of the computer to see if there are audio jacks for speakers, microphone or audio inputs. These plugs are typically in a standard color code of green, pink, and blue. If you can find no plugs available, then it is a good bet that the computer doesn't have a sound card installed.
Step221Open the control panel, Start>Settings>Control Panel. Look for the icon that says "Sound and Audio Devices." Open the icon and look on the "Sounds" tab. The sound device used for audio appears in a box in the upper portion of the screen. There should also be entries in the last three tabs. The last tab is the "Hardware" tab. It will list all the available audio and sound devices on the computer. Step332Right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select "Properties." Click on the third tab and then select the "Device Manager." The Device Manager shows all the hardware on your computer. It displays any devices it cannot identify under "Other" with a yellow question mark. These may be the sound card. If there is nothing listed under "Sound card" and nothing under "Other", then you don't have a sound card in your computer.
