Go to the control panel and then open system.

In there you should see your hardware. Make sure it is all set correctly.
Also check the speaker on the taskbar. Open the sound and make sure that all are checked or (not checked) on to make the sound work ... wave, midi, and so on for what you are playing . Some will turn on when checked, some will turn off when checked...try these settings.

Make sure your music player is set correctly. Go to the properties in the program.

What port on the back of the hard drive do I plug the durabrand uc280 USB powered speakers into?


Hi Missy
You don't plug the speakers into the hard drive.
You should have two cables or wires
a USB cable, which you want to plug into any open USB port. the USB cable will not plug into any port other than a USB port, so just find any open one.
The second wire should be a male 3.5mm stereo jack plug.
If you have a desktop computer, look on the back for a round green hole that the stereo jack will fit into. There may or may not be a symbol of headphones. You may not have a symbol or colored hole, in that case find the two or three holes that the plug will fit into, then turn on a program that should have sound, then plug the stereo plug into each of the holes until you hear sound. If you hear no sound no matter which hole, check to make sure you do not have the sound muted.
If you are using a laptop, look for the hole with the headphone symbol.
Hope this helps.

Hi,the problem with my dell inspiron1420 is that suddenly theres no sound..but if pluf in my headphones..it works...pls help..how do i fix this?thx


Hello,
The most common issue when this happens, is not easy to fix. There is a pin in the headphone jack that opens a circuit when you plug the headphones in which turns off the internal speakers. Over time the pin gets worn down and stays in the position even if headphones are not plugged in. This prevents the internal speakers from getting the audio signal.
Some people have had success with poking a pin in the hole and gently prying the pin back a little. I don't recommend you do this though as you may make it worse or short something out. By all means if you want to try that, turn off the laptop first and unplug it from the A/C and take out the battery.
Most cases you will need to send the laptop to DELL for servicing. If the laptop is out of warranty, the repair might not be worth the cost.
This happens a lot and I has happened to one of my Asus Laptops. Very annoying! I feel your pain.
Regards, Chris

I just installed the Cyber Acoustics Model CA-2014 on my Dell computer and am getting no sound. It is plugged into the "green" port. I have tried the other ports but they do not work either. Do I need...


Hi,

Disconnect the speaker source cable from your computer and to a MP3, CD Player, or anything else with 3.5mm headphone jack. If your speakers work on this source, you know are okay. And the issue lies on PC or Connector/Sound card.

Also please tell me, if you were able to hear sound with other speaker or headset.

I didn't able to hear sound in my computer from speakers and headphones.


There can be more than one reason, why the computer can’t play any sounds. These are discussed below:
If you have a desktop computer, it may or may not have a separate sound card. But in case of laptops, the sound card is integrated into the motherboard and cannot be removed, so some of the solutions may not apply to laptops. Also, new laptops come with built-in speakers, so the external speakers and cabling problems may not apply here, unless you use external speakers or headphones.
So, where do you start, when you can’t hear any sounds from your computer?
Before we start with the solutions, did you try the simplest solution first? Rebooting or restarting the computer is the simplest solution and should be tried first. If you didn’t already reboot, try it now. The sounds may just work after a reboot.
Can you hear the Windows startup sounds from the computer? If you can hear the Windows startup sounds, the sound card is working fine. If you can’t hear any startup sounds, enable the System Sounds in the Control Panel, if they are disabled. If you aren’t able to enable the system sounds and they are grayed out, you may need to install the sound driver.
Are you trying to play an audio CD, and not getting any sound? If you can hear the System Sounds, but can’t hear anything from the audio CD, even though your audio player software tells that it’s playing the disc, the problem is most likely with the digital cable that goes from the CD/DVD driver to the sound card (or to the motherboard).
One side of this cable goes into the back of the CD/DVD drive and the other goes into the sound card or on to the motherboard (in case of motherboards with built-in sound).
Are the speakers connected to the proper sound port / jack, at the back of the computer? Are they powered ON? External speakers generally have a separate power adapter, which plugs into the wall socket or any other power source. Is the speaker volume control, set to a comfortable level? If not, turn it to the middle position.
If in doubt, test your speakers by connecting them to another sound device like CD/DVD player or a radio/tape player, or any sound source. If you can hear sounds from the speakers, they are fine.
Check that the speaker pin is connected to the green jack on the back of the computer. Also, check that the sound (check speaker icon in the system tray) isn’t muted. Such a simple thing, which can happen accidentally, can confuse some people when they can’t hear sounds from their computers. This can get overlooked because the speaker icon may be lost between many other icons. Click it and un-mute the sound, if it’s muted.
Note: If you can’t see the speaker icon in the system tray, you may need to enable it from the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, double-click “Sound and Audio Devices” and check the box that says “Place volume icon in the taskbar” and click OK.
Try plugging in a pair of headphones in place of the speakers, to check whether you can hear anything. Play a song or music CD or any sound file, which you may have on the computer. If you don’t have one handy, you can run a command to test your sound:
Click the Start button, and then click Run (or Search, in Windows 7 / Vista). Type the following command and then press the Enter key: dxdiag
Click on the ‘Sound’ tab to see the details of your sound card. You can also test your sound card from this tab. Note the name of the sound card and the manufacturer, on a piece of paper.
If you can’t see the name of the sound driver, or aren’t able to hear the sound by using the ‘Test DirectSound’ button, or you get an error, the problem may be with the sound driver. If the sound worked sometime ago and now it isn’t working for some reason, the simplest solution for re-installing the sound driver is to do a System Restore. Restore the system to a date that you know, when your sound worked. Check out the following links for a short tutorial on System Restore
Note: Current documents, files and e-mail are not affected by System Restore. If you get an error like “Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored“, undo the last action by selecting “Undo my last restoration”.
Here’s a youtube video on how to restore a system with System Restore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mU5yqvye57E

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/System-Restore-frequently-asked-questions
If System Restore didn’t help or you get a message that System Restore couldn’t be completed, try the following:
Start the Device Manager (Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc and hit the Enter key). In Device Manager, Click the + sign next to “Sound, video and game controllers”. See that the sound driver that you noted from dxdiag above, is listed.
Doube-click this sound driver. Device Manager should give a status message that the driver is working fine. If the driver isn’t there or if it shows a yellow exclamation mark, shows under other devices, or gives any other kind of status message, reinstall the driver. In any case, it doesn’t harm to uninstall and reinstall the driver.
From this sound driver properties page, you may also click the Troubleshoot button, to open the Sound Troubleshooter in the Windows Help and Support Center.

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


Hi,

This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the aumha.org site.

Left speaker gives no sound


There could already be a problem with the speaker jack, if only one channel is consistently giving no sound on your system.

Try turning the male (connected to speaker wire) jack and you might hear a static crackle while doing this. If you get both channels to produce sound this way, you already have a failing audio jack, and may need replacement later on.

Hope this helps.

A8N SLI Deluxe Sound device/driver not working.


Have you tried using microsoft system restore to roll back your computer to when your friend did the dirty deed? To use it, go to start> all programs> accessories> system tools> system restore. If it hasn't been too long since you got it back, you might be able to recover your system very easily using system restore, but do it right now, because the longer you wait, the more likely it is that the repair record has disappeared.

Display problem


Hi there
try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express.
You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved

Good luck and kind regards
