Sir i am having windowsxp sofrtware in my computer, but if i play any CD the audio is not coming


Please see if you are getting the round speaker symbol next to the clock in the right hand bottom of the screen. If not , you will have to reload the audio driver from your Motherboard CD and restart the PC.
If the speaker symbol is there , double click on the symbol and see if you CD Volume Tab and Master Volume Tab is low or UNTICK THE MUTE TAB if its on. Do all this while playing a CD.

Please tell me which holes i plug my speakers into, cant get sound :-(


The green hole or if no colour there should be a symbol next to the hole matching the same on the speaker's jack. OR...

After reinstalling/installing an Operating System you can lose the Audio Drivers or sometimes they just corrupt.. Try reinstalling the Audio Drivers from the disk provide with your P.C./Laptop. If you no longer have the disk just visit the website of the makers of your P.C./Laptop or Motherboard and download the Audio Drivers from there, after that install them.
Thumbs up please if this works for you, thanks.

My volume on my laptop isnt working.. theres a red/white x on the volume symbol.. how can i fix it?


If you have a red/white "x" on the volume icon next to the clock in the system tray then most likely the driver to the audio device is either damaged or the driver is corrupted or missing. Go to support.toshiba.com and go to download and look up your model. Change the filter to "sound" and look for a new audio driver. Download and install and this should fix your problem.

Connect speakers to computer


DESKTOP :

You want to look for 3 colored ports on your computer if it is a desktop

Green - Headphones / Speaker Ports

Blue - Audio In (from CD player or other device)

Pink - Microphone

You will want to take the plug from your speakers and plug it into the Green spot on the back of your computer.

LAPTOP:

If you have a laptop look on the front of the machine (usually) again you should see 3 connectors (May not be colored) but there will be a symbol next to each jack. You want to look for the speaker symbol .

Plug your speakers into there

let me know if this helps.

All connected, but when recording, records a symbol only of an eye and a microphone crossed out ( a no entry symbol) the camera used to work fine, both for video and audio, so i have removed all software,...


Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


Hi rjlevesque

For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

green = speakers
pink = mic
blue = line in

Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you

Cant Hear Dialogue Over the Background Sound


I had the same problem, first you can download the manual online to see how to reset the speakers. next, make sure you have true digital audio input with a fiber optic or like connector. you should see little LED symbols of r/l/c/w/rr/rl etc. If you just see R and L, it is not getting a true signal.

But what worked the best was getting a better, devoted, CENTER speaker, not just a speaker in the center, but one devoted to dialogue.

good luck
