How do I get my sound to work?

By July 23, 2012 No Comments

There are a number of issues when configuring sound. First, be sure that your audio hardware settings are correct. Scala sometimes assigns the wrong information during the Autodetect process. You must check the settings in Scala against the settings from your operating system.

If sound used to work, and you are using a Plug & Play(PnP) system (e.g. Windows 95), your settings may have been changed when you restarted your system. You can correct this under Windows 95 by letting Windows 95 set the PnP settings for the card. Then edit the properties of your Sound Card in Device Manager section under Control Panel and turn off the “use automatic setting” in the Resource section of your sound card settings. This will prevent Windows 95 from changing the hardware settings for your sound card every time it boots.

If you are using a laptop with a docking station, you will need to reset your Scala sound settings if your docking station has a sound card installed. Additional information is provided later in this section.

Lastly, make sure you have your speaker cable plugged into the proper jack on your sound card.
