    Hello Eric, nice 9 year old, HYJACK. Sep 14, 2021 from 2012.year.
    Eric your PC is not Ms. Rebeca's nec versa p8210.., or may be close, IDK cant see yours.
    no country told (sold to) nor what OS it runs, XP and Vista are the 2,.

    First is (usage ) "connections, can be many or just 1"
    there are many causes of bad sound, (yes sound is very complex due to so many choices in fact)
    first off do the internal speakers fail ? both left and right side? next is.
    and do 1$ ear buds fail inserted to the 3.5mm phone jacks fail.
    Volume turned up for sure !!!

    Do you have USB phones? or USB speakers connected to this PC or bluetooth phones or speakers here?
    NO OS TOLD can we guess windows?, and if yes, which one (start+run+winver) read it? tell it first.
    not telling OS invites vast wrong answers, ok? is that clear on versions?
    as will bogus OS upgrades not supported by your NEC maker or the sound chip at HAND.

    i guess you never seen a PC with 3 or more types of sound music playing devices at one time connected.
    that is managed by 2 ways, using the task bar sound ICON,,,right clicked and manage sound settings. bingo 1.
    then bingo2 (drivers wrong)
    in device manager, the sound chips must be showing as healthy. MUST !!!
    if shows ok there
    we go to control panel again and click (SOUND)
    make sure TAB is set to PLAY BACK
    my PC has 4 things there, local inside PC speakers, 3.5mm-phones or USB1 (vast things) or bluetooth2.
    what you do is pick what you want to work there, or it will be dead. for sure.
    ON mine right now USB is wired to high end DAC sound system optical, see? how versatile sound is?

    one top cause of this (2?) is upgrading the OS when NEC told you not to do that, because w7 to w10 is not supported at all or not even just sound.
    number2, you loaded wrong drivers to this PC not from NEC>(now are infected?)

    now some facts on OLD PCs for sure NEC or Sony from Japan both are. nippon electric company .
    first off , how old is the PC.
    super old with only 512MB or RAM, on board new. over 11 years old.
    I carbon 14 date all PCs before I fix them, or waste HUGE time or cash doing the Impossible. OK?
    NEC has no books,
    Posts on line are for 2006, 2008 and 2010 but 2006 is it. 15 years old TODAY 2021

    Nec web site is down

    see that dead. never is that good owning any PC the maker went DEAD for Support.

    OMG (oh,my golly)
    2006 posts on this old dog, 15 years old. I call this the smoking gun lacking NEC BOOKs to find. ever.

    all support links dead, that I can find.

    here is their new NEC offical page, good luck navigating that mess.
    country is ask first and guess what not told here first. sad no?

    all Versa Pnnn are zero support , now, in fact they pretend it never exited.

    Your PC came with CD back in 2006
    and has the drivers on it for XP or has VISTA drivers too, 2007 is VISTA year Jan1.
    lost the CD is not good , now that NEC erased all support. for ever.
    NO MS support
    NO NEC support, now, it ended long ago.
    NO CD now lost
    doomed.? of drivers lost

    if I was desperate ,(not ever ) ID use device manager, and find the CHIP ID, (ven_xx, and DEV_zzzz code)
    or use free HWinfo32.exe , free and portable ( google it) run it and find maker of sound chips name and ID codes
    learn that one PC say a VERSA P8201 has submodels (not told) that sold new with 3 different sound systems and chip sets. and drum roll not the same on all countries not told by you, yours. sad for sure.
    learn that fact first.
    then use Hwinfo32 to find what it is, then we go to the chip maker side (vast maker) and get the driver.
    from them. 50% chance it works.
    names like Realtek
    analog devices

    vast makers of chips DIED< or were bought out and killed by new owners.

    deeper searches on the dark web show.
    Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7200 (less than i3 is no good now)
    (2.0 Ghz, 4MB L2 Cache 667 Mhz FSB)
    Intel® 945PM (south bridge, obsolete now by intel)

    - 15.4" Wide XGA TFT Super Shine View
    - 100GB SATA Harddisk
    - DVD Super Multi Drive (Dual Layer)
    - 1GB DDR2 Dual Channel Memory (up to 2GB)
    - ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 128MB (up to 512MB)
    - Intel Wireless Pro 3945 A/B/G
    - Integrated 56K Fax/Data Modem (Dial up junk)
    - Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 LAN
    - Wireless Bluetooth
    - 1 Type I/II PCMCIA, USB2.0 x 4pcs, FireWire IEEE1394,
    - 5 in 1 Card Reader, IrDA (Fast Infrared) , VGA Out
    - Express Card Remote Control
    - Weight at 2.90Kg
    - Windows XP Home Edition $2600 bucks what a rip off this is. crazy money.
    subwoofer ! a shock to me that . (and tells me the only driver that work are NEC from NEC or the CD you lost)

  • Anonymous Sep 14, 2021

    now let me do the hit list.? (dead driver) topic , just that.
    device manger for VISTA? shows sound chip dead, if yes, connect this PC to the internet, now, and let MS plug and play work then on the driver right click sound (device manager) and update driver,
    ok fails (hey MS told you even XP ended in 2014 dead for support why not believe them.?

    now use the CD from NEC day1 new PC, and install the driver to device manager that way,
    ok lost the CD sure. at 15 years old who keeps CDs for that long but you did that to yourself oops
    so go to oops no Versa support not, ended LONG LONG AGO! facts are facts,
    so leaving one cure, google finds drivers, that are infected, bingo you lose, 999/100 tries you get infected.
    I close my eyes now and never ever read email from you,(dig?)_

    most of these PC are in the land fill, now that all support ended, this is try an for XP that must and did end.

    the only clues left in the world are XP or Vista. 2006 and 2007 what you have there is NOT TOLD yet.
    no country told
    some have different sound chips side, oops. not told

  • Anonymous Sep 14, 2021

Joelmar, you are incorrect. This model was also sold with xp, I'm typing this on one. If you still have the original Hdd and have not formatted the recovery partition, boot up the laptop whilst holding the f11 key. This will start NEC recovery and allow you to reinstall the system, drivers included. Back up first!

SOURCE: Replace CMOS battery

First you need to take the cover off your laptop and locate the cmos battery which looks like an oversize battery watch. With everything unplugged it just pulls out, note which side of the battery goes however. Place the new one in put everything back together and power the computer up. When it powers up it will finally get to the screen that says press "F1" for setup or "F2" to continue. Press F1 and you will get to your set up screen. You can go through each screen and select F5 which is the default factory settings or scoll across the top to the last screen which will give you the option of resetting all the settings to factory default with just pressing one of the F keys once only. Once you do that, just shutdown your computer and restart and it will start as normal. It may go through the F1 and F2 screen one more time but just press F2 and continue. After you log off the next time all your changes should be good. Let me know if I can help you in any other way.

When I plug my headphones in why doesnt the sound come out of the headphones?

Where do you plug in the phones? if it is an iPhone. the music playing will be stopped, just to precent your ears to be damaged. When plugging in headphones, while the volume is high, the sound level can be so high, you can damage your ears. Yes damage that will last the set of your life, because loss of hearing, can't regenerate. For that reason some MP3 played, cill stop music playing, as soon as a headphone is plugged in.
Just start the music that was playing when you did lower he output volume if the music stops.

Nec versa p8210

try using a nother windows

No audio device installed on my NEC Versa E6210, how do i fix this?

Go to NEC's website and download the driver. Choose your correct operating system, Vista or XP.


Is your volume muted?

Have you checked to make sure your drivers are all installed/functioning correctly?

Otherwise, something could be physically wrong with your speakers. They could be damaged or there could be a short somewhere on your computer.

My nec versa pro loptop has no sound when time i play music and videos

try external speakers or headphones. If it works then it's your speakers. If it doesn't, reinstall your sound drivers. If that still doesn't work then it's your soundcard. Then that's a pc tech job.

Touch pad isn't responding to double taps

It is probably damaged. Take it to a service center or call Tech support.

I have a laptop nec versa pro va86j the sound doesnt work.

Go into control panel, go to device manager open the window look for your sound card and delete it, click back to top at computer click refresh and reinstall the software to your sound card. ck all settings, your speaker volume, and so on, try head phones to see if you get anything.

My laptop NEC VERSA P8210 shuts down after a while when running some programs. i think because it is overheating.

may be, or battery problem check your adapter if your adapter is working then contact laptop engineer
