This is a dedicated sound card to split the sound the way it should be heard, there are specific types of speaker systems you can use with this either a 2.1,5.1 or 7.1 set up, but dont just buy 8 (4pr) of normal speakers as it won't work, buy the 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 speaker sytem. Also the sound will only be reproduced in supported games and dvd movies, other than that you will only achieve normal stereo

My compaq presario c700 speakers dont give sound however i can listen sound using headphones. Is it some hardware problem in its inbuilt speakers? I have windows 7 ultimate OS.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If you can listen to sound from any other means, as you said via headphones, then the Audio drivers are working ok. The issue is with your Hardware unit; i.e Speakers (The In-built speakers).
I hope you are getting the picture.
Concerned, Nooh

I had a Gateway Computer that crashed. (10 year old ) and I want to use the same speakers for my new HP Windows 7 computer. What sound cards do I need to download? Or how do I find out?

The new HP Windows 7 computer most likely already has a sound card built in. On the back of your computer you should find at least three 1/8" plugs for sound related use. If there is just three, one is for line-in, one is for line out (speaker connection), and the other is for the microphone. You would connect your old speakers to the line-out connection (usually a pale green color). If you have more connections, then you have a sound card that supports surround sound. You'll have to refer to the computer's documentation to determine which output to connect to.

We hav e dc5100mt that does not have a sound

The spec sheet for that model shows that there is a built in speaker. If you are hearing a beep or a bong or anything that is a one note sound when you delete a file, it's probably the reason. If you are comfortable enough, you can open the case and unplug the speaker wire from the motherboard. If it is hard wired to the motherboard, you can always use some wire cutters and cut ONLY the red and black wire that leads to the internal speaker. Please do this at your own risk and make sure you are taking all the precautions you can so you don't ruin your system.

Compaq presario. speakers wont work but headphones will

Apparently the built-in speakers have one bad. You can have the speakers replaced for you at a good computer repair shop if you cannot affort to send it in at this time.

Compaq CQ50 Laptop

If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in  speaker(s)  is/are  bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.

IMB T42 Laptop Sound card quality is really poor what up grades

It's probably _not_ the soundcard (chipset), but the teeny little
crummy speakers built into the T42. On a thin, light laptop the manufacturers have to make some compromises, and one of them is that they give you miniature speakers that aren't much good for music reproduction.

The fix: either uses earphones or plug in external speakers into
the earphone jack. You can get pretty good, pretty cheap external speakers that give you fine sound.

Denon AVR-X2400H Intermittent Protection Mode on startup Apologies for the incoming wall of text. Whenever my Denon AVR-X2400H receiver has been off for several hours most regularly in the morning, it will often go into protection mode on start. This has been happening for months. After anywhere from a minute to 20 minutes, after many restarts/moving the unit around/swearing, it will start normally and function without issue for hours until the next long period of being off. It is the dreaded PRT: DC. During this period of protection mode, it will fail to start even if I disconnect everything but power. I have swapped the power cables, tried different outlets, and let it get plenty of airflow though if it were temp related it would be a different code / not happen on first startup. I even opened up the unit, disassembled it and looked for moisture/scorch marks/loose cables before re-assembling. I have performed a couple factory resets over the last couple months. I assume the intermittent startup nature hints at a failing but not failed part, but am not sure what to replace. I have access to an engineer friend / multimeter if helpful. It is well out of warranty, but there's a part of me that wants to believe it can be salvaged, especially given current AVR prices. Other things I have tried include leaving it in ECO/network standby. There was a period where spinning the source wheel on startup would cause the AVR to lock up but not trigger protection, after which unplugging/replugging would allow it to start normally. Not exactly scientific.
