no --- you are measuring voltage or potential
to measure amps---current flow you have to put an amp meter in the circuit.
Some multi meters you can set to amps and by placing the + lead on the power supply and run the current though the meter to what ever you are powering will give a reading
Remember not to exceed the capacity of the meter or it will burn up in your hand.

check the speaker plug/outlets is usually if its a laptop on the side


you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity


clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is or a can of compressed air

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer


hope this helps

The screen is wearing out, specifically the backlight. There's not much you can do at this point, but if you shop around, you should be able to find a smartphone app that does everything your old PDA used to. Mine quit and I still keep it as a memento of happy times.

The proper installation of a CPU fan is often the subject of debate. Though there are conflicting theories as to which direction the CPU fan should face, there are methods to ascertain which CPU fan installation best suits your needs. The determining factors of your CPU fan installation direction include the manufacturer specifications, your case design and the specific design of your heat sink
Horizontal Installation
  • The installation of a CPU fan horizontally to the plane of the motherboard is the most common installation orientation there is. Your options when installing your CPU fan are to blow cool air onto the heat sink or to pull cool air through the heat sink from the motherboard. Horizontal installations show negligible advantages in either installation direction. The differences in temperature usually vary by only 1 or 2 degrees Celsius. The main point to consider when installing a horizontal CPU fan is the location of the rear exhaust fan on the case. If the rear exhaust fan on the case is parallel to the processor, it is advantageous to have the fan pull cool air from the motherboard and push it out above the heat sink. This is because the case fan will quickly draw that hot air away from the CPU and out of the case, allowing for quick cooling.

Vertical Installation
  • Vertical, or tower, heat sinks rise high enough off the motherboard to allow for a fan to be installed perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. This allows for cooling to go from the front to the back of the case, as opposed to going from the bottom to the top. Optimal installations for vertical heat sinks are blowing toward either the back or the top of the case. If there is no exhaust fan in the top face of your computer's case, it is more effective to orient your fan on your vertical heat sink so that it blows toward the rear exhaust fan of the case. If there is an exhaust fan on the top face of your computer case, it is almost always more effective to mount your CPU fan so that it blows air up toward the top of your case. The reasoning behind this is that hot air rises and will more naturally flow off the top of your case. Also, top-mounted fans are usually larger and allow for faster airflow out of the case.

Manufacturer Recommendations
  • It is often the case with nonstock heat sinks that the manufacturer has designed the heat sink's fan to be mounted in a limited number of orientations. This is usually evidenced by limited mounting notches on the heat sink itself. Most aftermarket heat sinks use technologies such as heat pipes that have specific cooling needs to operate appropriately. Because of this, it is important that in any CPU fan installation you follow the manufacturer's installation instructions.

The default color is green for the audio output. Your speakers should plug in there.
If you aren't getting sound, make sure they are plugged into power (most speakers use an external power source).

they might be muted or have faulty connections/leads
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also

click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume


click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check

the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if it
