Speaker troubles

Post  Guest on Mon Oct 12, 2009 10:27 am

Anyone here able to help me with my speaker issues? Can't get any sound from them since installing vista, and it seems to be completely oblivious to their presence when I plug them into the jacks. Done the usual driver checks, googling around etc but still can't get anything to work, device manager is hopeless and I'm definitely struggling to find a way to get it working at the moment.

Its either not plugged in, on mute or the drivers ain't installed! Have you tried using headphones? Control panel > Sounds and audio devies > audio tab > then checking the default output device?

Its drivers I'm more than likely having issues with, but these are meant to be plug & play no CD came with the speakers and when I plug them in nothing changes - they have power and were set up exactly as before - I have 8 sound input jacks (use surround sound for some things so thats why I have so many) but can't get any pick up from any of them.

There is a 'device' that shows sound levels when something like music is being played, but its not going from there to my speakers. So im stumped at the moment and don't have any working headsets at the moment.

Yea, came to that conclusion myself and dug up dxdiag - the problem is the soundcard isn't listed because there's no drivers. So I'm stumped again, with the graphics card it was easy - installed it myself and knew that it was a geforce so got around that. Anyway I can find out what it is, its an on-board sound card so I can't exactly pop it open and check.

I know my motherboard is foxconn or something like that, any way to find the specific model without having to pop it open again - tried to do that for the sound driver, but its just a smooth black small box with no writing on feckin genius on their behalf lol.

There's too much text to use the pause key on during boot-up so I can't get the split-second needed to freeze the screen where it lists the name of the motherboard during the boot-up phase. So I'm really struggling to find out my motherboard opened the computer again and can't find anything more than the foxconn name, and they're hardly a good-brand so don't have any software on the site like nvidia etc.

Yea, there is some that are genuine, but no one could quite give me the right name and there's so many which are just viruses one I clicked on that someone said came up as a download of something like 225sdscfds.exe which obviously wasn't a genuine program.
