Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have no sound on my desktop computer. All volume controls are set to maximum, yet I cannot get a single sound from the speakers. I have a Compaq Presario processor and HP monitor. Any ideas?


Answers :

(In order of things to try)

1. Make sure everything is plugged in properly (speaker power, connection from speakers to computer), etc.

2. (Clarification) By all volume controls, does that include the windows sound panel options? It may be on mute. Tell me what operating system you're using and I can help you with this one. Also, your keyboard may have a mute button. Try pressing that if it does.

3. Plug in another pair of speakers/headsets to your computer and see if those work. If they don't, it's either #2 or your sound card.

4. If it is definitely not #2, it is your sound card. You'll have to purchase a new one. Go to your local computer parts dealer to get one, they can help you. If you don't have one, buy one from www.newegg.com . Post questions here or on forums, don't waste money on someone from Geek Squad or anything. Installing sound cards and the like is pain-free and easy.
