hi y,all, newbie and technophobe here, got new speakers for my pc cos lost sound from old ones, plugged them in correctly but no sound, they do work ok bit pc is telling me that nothing is connected for sound, do i need a new sound card?
Ensure the sound is enabled. I assume you have 'on board sound'- that is the connectors are in the same panel as the USB and and keyboard and mouse sockets . If this is the care dig out the utilities disk that cane with the computer and ensure the sound system drivers are loaded. If the sound IN/OUT/MIC sockets are elswhere on tyhe machine further down in one the the PCI slots then a separate driver to the sound card is required. If you are still uncertain down load this click here and run it - it will tell what sound systmn you do have and we can take it from there
