With some multimedia keyboards, it's easy to mute or turn down the volume from the keyboard. Many Systemax systems ship with this type of keyboard. The volume controls are usually at the top of the keyboard or on the right or left side of the keyboard.

However, since there are a number of different styles of multimedia keyboards, I'm not sure which key you would need to find. Look for a key with the speaker symbol (looks like a megaphone). Also look in the bottom right corner of the computer screen for the same symbol. If there is a red circle with a line, then the mute has been enabled. Otherwise, it may be that the volume was reduced. With a mouse it's easy to change the setting; just left click on that symbol in that section of the notification bar.

In some cases, speakers do fail. So if changing the volume doesn't work, try a different set of speakers.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your keyboard or Systemax computer model if you need additional assistance.

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question / exclamation? ! mark or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers


if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

or you might download slimdrivers


rather doing a driver hunt

http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html


note: it will find all of your outdated drivers


this is a free driver solutions

which will automatically search for and find the correct driver

you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue

updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated


it might take some time being free
hope this helps

    Refer to your motherboard manual, since the motherboard is the beeping device. These beeps are like Morse code, and each "beep code" is explained in the manual. Common beep codes include not having a monitor or keyboard properly connected; not having a CPU fan connected, or not attaching internal power cables to the video card. This black-screen-and-beeping issue is most common with newly-assembled computers.

  • 2

    Check external cables to make sure they're properly connected. The most important external connections to check are the monitor's signal cable and the keyboard. If your monitor cable looks damaged or kinked, try replacing it with a spare. If your keyboard's cable looks frayed, try a spare keyboard.

    Also, a PS/2 keyboard plug (round, with holes in it, about the diameter of a finger) is often color-coded purple. If you have plugged it into the green port in the back of the computer (for PS/2 mice) switch it to the other one. If there is no color coding, the proper port should have a small, embossed icon of a keyboard on the back of the computer. If it does not, refer to your motherboard manual for the correct port. If all else fails, try a spare keyboard, preferably USB (Universal Serial Bus), which can be plugged into any USB port on the back of the computer.

    • 3

      Check for additional motherboard power connections. Yours may require multiple cables attached from the power supply. There is the standard wide plug, which you know is connected properly because your motherboard is beeping. However, there may also be an additional, four-pin cable that connects elsewhere on the motherboard. Check the board's manual to make sure it has all the power connections it needs.

    • 4

      Check your internal cables. Make sure that the CPU fan is plugged into the motherboard header nearby. Without that, the CPU fan will not spin, and the motherboard may detect this lack of connection and produce a beep code. Your video card also may have one or two internal power plugs that need to be attached to the power supply's cables. These cables have unique ends on them, similar in shape to a USB plug. Refer to the case or video card documentation if need be. If those cables are not attached, your motherboard may refuse to boot the system.

      Your video card may be faulty. If this is a new card, it may have arrived to you broken, in which case you will probably need to request an RMA (Return to Manufacturer Authorization) to receive a replacement. If this card was previously working for you in this system, you can contact its manufacturer yourself to receive a replacement, if the device is still under

      clear the bios - locate the little 3-pin jumper labeled with "CLR" or simmilar next to the bios chip/battery. short circuit the free pin with the one next to it (yiou will need to use the jumper that is on there). once you have kept it on for 10 seconds - put it back in to original position and configure your bios (time settings, boot device,...)

      if you can't find the jumper or you think it's too complicated - unplug your pc from power and remove the bios battery. after 30 minutes install the battery as it was and configure your bios (time settings, boot device,...)
