No sound coming from both speaker


There are several things that could be wrong:
Your speakers are broken
Your speakers are not turned on
The sound cable is plugged into the wrong jack
The speakers are muted in Windows
The sound drivers are not installed or are corrupt.
Your sound card is bad.
Lots to think about. First ask if your speakers were working. If so, when?
Try a system restore back to when they were working. That should fix it. IF not, proceed:
Go into the control panel and click on sounds.
Select system sounds, choose a Windows event that has a sound assigned and try to preview it. If the preview arrow is grayed out, then the sound drivers are at fault. If you have a black arrow and you click on it and it seems like it's playing, then check for mechanical problems.
If Windows thinks it's playing and it isn't, the system restore thing should fix it. Or try another set of speakers to see if your speakers have failed.

No speaker sound


There sometimes are three connectors on a sound card that are similar. A speaker output, microphone input, and stereo headphone output.

Try all three, if you accidentally put it on the microphone input you won't get sound output of that one, so try another.

Also, check in the speaker control panel for the sound to be checked to mute or volume turned all the way down.

Having speakers to work on vizo desk top . all in on desktop!


You need to remove the unknows first. Try the speakers on another device. You could try a walkman, another computer or anything with an 1/8th" Stereo jack. Prove that the speakers work or get a pair of headphones to check out your PC. If you are using the green jack on the back try the headphone jack on the front. If the front works and the back doesn't check the sound card options / set up. Some have an icon by the time in the bottom right corner others will need to be found under the sound effects manager or the sounds and audio devices icon. I suspect if you get this far something has been turned off in the software.

Sound is low


try to see if the wave volume is on and maximum on the volume panel ( double click on vol icon on tray system (right low) ) ...also see if your speakers are plugged into the proper place ...and are not in the auxiliary out or something like this ...they should be plugged into the green middle out ...if they are simple stereo 3,2 jack ...so ..if the problem its still on ..its probably the sound card...(actually the pre-amplifier on it ..)

Simply no sound from PC


Check if you have plugged in the stereo pin to the right port on the PC.
Open sound control (in control panel) and check if the both speaker(main volume) and the wave volume sliders are not set to the lowest.

Inspiron 530 sound distortion


What kind of integrated sound card do you have?? I am going to assume its realtek. Go to control panel, then open up RealTek HD Sound effect manager and make sure the drop down menu for Environment is on "none". The try your speakers.

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to use these solutions of mine it will help you for sure Problem: Your New Sound Card Doesn't Work—You Don't Get Any Sound Let's look at the simple stuff first. Is the card installed properly in your system unit? Have you connected the audio cable from your sound card to your CD-ROM/DVD drive? Are speakers (or headphones) hooked up to the card? Are the speakers plugged in and turned on? (And are they plugged into the correct jack? You don't want to plug your speakers into your microphone jack!) Are you performing a task on your PC that actually produces sound? Is the volume turned up loud enough (both on your speakers and in Windows)?
Okay, now that the easy stuff is out of the way, let's turn to something more difficult. The most likely cause of no sound is some sort of conflict. One by one, change your card's DMA, IRQ, and port settings. (This might entail resetting some jumpers on the card itself, as well as making some software-based changes.)
This problem can also occur if you add a new sound card to a system that has sound capabilities built into the motherboard. You'll need to disable the onboard sound before the new sound card can work.
Problem: Your New Sound Card Crashes Your System If you've just installed your sound card, you might not have the card properly installed. Check your installation (is the card properly seated and connected?) and then reboot your system.
If this doesn't fix it, you have something wrong in your setup. Check your software setup to make sure you have the same DMA, IRQ, and port assignments as selected on your sound card itself (usually via DIP switches or jumpers). If the settings are correct, you probably have a conflict of some kind. You should methodically change the DMA, IRQ, and port assignments in Windows so that they don't conflict with the assignments for other devices on your system. thats all friend good luck hope i helped you.
