I'm really baffled here as to what's going on with my laptop audio. It was working just a few days ago from what I remember and now tonight when I was playing a game in Steam the audio just wasn't working. Checked audio settings in the game, all was good. Turned the game off and started testing using YouTube, still nothing. The volume is definitely up and I found that headphones work fine. When I open the 'Playback devices' dialogue from right clicking the speaker in the task bar it shows the green equalizer bar moving up and down if something is playing, but there's no audio. I've checked for any conflicting devices in here and ensured everything was enabled as per usual.

So far I've updated the drivers, uninstalled the drivers completely and reinstalled them (automatically after restarting laptop), and have checked for updates on my computer (all up to date). My device manger does have 2 drivers listed which I thought was weird, but maybe it has always been like this? I'm not sure honestly. I uninstalled both and they both came back after restarting. See the image here:


Is there anything else to try? I thought uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them would fix it, but nope.

System details: Windows 10, Acer Aspire laptop (~7 months old? No issues thus far). Let me know if I need to provide any more details! Very frustrated and need to get to bed now because of work in the morning, but I will be sure to check back and try any suggestions and answer any questions.

I have just done a fresh install from vista to Windows 7 7100. All drivers are installed and working fine but I dont seem to be getting any sound out of my internal laptop speakers.

I plugged in headphones and they work fine, i never had a problem in Vista.

I have install the latest Realtek 223 codecs and still no joy, I'm in the middle of trying some older versions but does anyone else have any ideas?

I'm running:
Windows 7 RC7100
Asus M50Sv
Realtek 223 codec

Not to sure on the accual hardware model.
Thanks.

I've had this problem for a few weeks now and haven't been able to solve it. When I play audio from any source, the sound is distorted and fuzzy. Sometimes when I restart the laptop then the audio plays as normal for a while, until I pause a video or load a new page and then the problem starts again. However, even when this happens, the audio is still perfectly fine if I play it through headphones.I have seen that there have been a few audio problems with notebooks and I've followed the recommended steps and installed the updated audio drivers but nothing has worked so far.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using an Ideapad Z560 with Windows 7 and whatever sound device it came with. The headphones work fine, but the laptop's speakers don't work unless I put the computer to sleep and turn it on again. And even then, they only work for about two minutes before they shut off again. I checked the Volume Mixer and the speakers are on and apparently playing sound, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Plugging and unplugging the headphones doesn't work; it seems that the computer is able to register when the headphones are plugged in, so that's not it.

Now download the driver here

And install that.
 
-See if that works

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.

Answer:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted.

Answer:Laptop speakers are not working but woring with headphones

Welcome to TSF,

Pretty basic questions from me to start with....Have you got the volume on your speakers turned up?

Are you sure your speakers are plugged into the right port? More details of your system would help, but until then, this may assist you.

Let us know,

kind regards,

Ive had my HP folio 13 Ultra book for a while now. I'm running on Windows 7 Home premium (64)
But a few days ago I found out the sund was not working. And for some reason the sound is working perfectly on my beats headphones
I have 2 Sound devices: IDT High Def CODEC (speakers and Headphones) and Communications headphones (IDT high def CODEC)
For Example: When you press the sound icon and you test the sound the green sound bar comes up but nothing comes out of the speakers.
Ive done the following: Trouble shooted, it found nothing , the sound is defiately on and ive tried updating the drive but its the latest. I really do not know why it is playing up.
Alright whats weird is it says it is working properly in the advanced settings?????!!!
Also when i play a song on itunes the green bar will go up and down like usual but the sound does not come out of the damn speakers. To make it more weird when I enable the Communications headphones and test them the sound comes out of the speakers and cuts out (since it is a test).i've phoned a friend of mine and he said that maybe the sound is stuck or locked on the headphones. He also thought that maybe the computer is computer is mixed up or confused with which audio device is what.

Hi,

I have an Hp625 running Windows 7 Basic 32 bit - I can play music through my laptops built in speakers without any problems, but when I plug headphones (or external computer speakers) into the headphone jack no sound comes through them (and simultaneously the laptop speakers go mute). My computer is dual boot with ubuntu, and this problem appeared when I upgraded my Ubuntu version - still, I know that the jack works as it is working fine in Ubuntu, and Im sure the problem is fixable within windows!

I have tried for HOURS to fix this problem, and attempted everything obvious, plus read many threads on similar topics. Please help. My computer is using the IDT audio control panel, and according to windows everything us up to date and fine. BUT ITS NOT PLEASE HELP.

Answer:My laptop speakers are working fine, but the headphone jack is not!

Are you experiencing the problem in windows or in ubuntu? Have you installed the sound driver for ubuntu when you upgraded your version of ubuntu. Have you updated the sound driver for windows?

Hi, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I had a set of GE 2.1 speakers working well with my Sony Vaio for about a year. Recently the sound started to go in & out, I had to move the wire around a lot and tape it or hold it in a certain spot to get them to work. Then one day they stopped working altogether. Assuming it was the speakers, I went and bought a new set from Best Buy. Took them home, plugged them in... and nothing, nothing at all. So I tried the OLD speakers in another desktop computer, and they worked perfectly.

So I assumed my headphone jack was broken and was going to go about trying to get a new piece and solder it and all that, but then I'm sitting here and just realized my headphones work perfectly.

What's wrong? How come the headphones work, but 2 pairs of external speakers don't?

Thanks so much

Jillian

New T530Speakers and Headphones were working fine. I have installed some codecs for VLC (don't think this would affect things) The speakers stopped working, but if you press your ear to the machine, you can hear some tiny clicks / pops when you try to play audio/video (itunes, VLC etc.) Checked Drivers, Sound Mixer, etc. All say the sound is on full.Volume Control Options show Speaker/HP 'realtek High Definition Audio' I tried updating the Sound Drivers. I rolled back the drivers, I unistalled the drivers.Downloaded the drivers from Lenovo, tried Microsoft. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Answer:T530 Speakers have stopped working, headphones still working, tiny small popping / clicking

Not really sure about this, but it sounds like the audio port's mechanical shunt is stuck or broken off.  That is an age old way of turning off speakers when a headphone or external speaker jack is inserted.  The jack pushes a small metal shunt over that opens the internal speakers' circuit.  When the jack is withdrawn, that small shunt is supposed to return to the original position that lets internal speakers function again. If that shunt is stuck or broken, the internal speakers could remain blocked after an external jack is removed. This is not a new problem, but it is not a common problem. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/No-sound-from-internal-speakers-only-from-h...

My laptop's speakers aren't working at all, and when my headphones are plugged in only the right side works. The only way I can hear out of both sides of them is if I pull the jack halfway out, like you would with faulty headphones. But there's nothing wrong with the headphones and I've tried various different ones. The speakers themselves aren't working at all despite the settings telling me they are. And yes, I've tried turning it on and off and looking for updates but nothing seems to be working.
Please help!

However, I don't even have the option of clicking that button. it won't let me click it.

Hey @sheba005,  Thanks for posting in the HP Support Forum.  I see that your HP Pavilion g6-1235so Notebook PC's speakers are no longer working since upgrading to Windows 10. I would like to assist. I have some suggestions that might help.  What's most likely causing the issue is the fact that there are no HP-tested Windows 10 drivers for your PC. Having said that, it's worth running through the recommended steps in the following troubleshooting guide: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-g6-1200-Notebook-PC-series/5145704/model/5186697/doc... Let me know if this restores sound to your speakers.

Answer:Headphones working as speakers

If the case does not the required "HD Audio" connector for the front panel headset/mic connections, you can buy a separate I/O panel that will have the correct connections. That may be your best option.

Hello! I'm having an issue with the sound on my computer. I have an emachine that runs Vista, but I don't know the specs.

I installed updates on it this morning, and since then I haven't been able to play any sounds through my speakers or through headphones.
When I check my sound devices, it says "Line 1, Live! Cam Virtual, Working", which to me is odd because my webcam certainly doesn't play sound, and it isn't even plugged in.
The only other device listed says "NVIDIA HDMI Output, NVIDIA HDMI Audio, Not plugged in" and I think those are my speakers, and if so they actually are plugged in.

I have checked to make sure nothing is muted, my speakers are on and plugged in, I did unplug and replug a few times, I restarted, etc, and still nothing.

Here's a screen cap:



Thanks a lot :)

I see that this is a pretty popular question on this forum by searching, but none of those methods are really working for me.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 that I think I have a SigmaTel Audio system (I'm not the best with computers, but I think it does). I use Microsoft XP.

This problem started a few months ago when I had my computer plugged into a TV through both VGA and headphone jack. Somehow the headphone male part got bent when it was in and when I unplugged it the internal speakers no longer worked, but headphones and external speakers work fine. I've searched the internet for a while for ways to fix it over the last month or so, but couldn't find anything that actually worked. This wouldn't really be a problem, but I move my laptop around a lot and live in a college dorm room and it's tough to have speakers constantly set up and connected to my laptop.

I've read a little about problems like this and it appears that I probably hit something inside the headphone jack when the plug bent that makes the computer think headphones are always plugged in (just a guess). I've tried plugging and unplugging my headphones really fast like a million times and it hasn't worked. I've reinstalled the sound drivers, reset the computer, etc. I'm kind of out of ideas.

Hi to all..

I have been bugged down by this problem. Whenever I plug in the microphone in the jack the speakers stop. Same is the case if I use headphones.

I can't figure out if the problem is with the sound card or the with any drivers or is it something else.

I have updated the sound driver.
Checked that all nothing is muted and the volume is full.

The headphone speakers and mic work well when used on another computer, so no problem with them.

The Control Panel>Hardware and Sound> Sound> Manage> Audio Devices shows speakers and headphones both as well as the microphone. But if headphones is selected again i get no sound. Microphone doesnt work in any case.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.
The sound driver is High Definition Audio Device and its version is 6.1.7600.16385.

It's really frustrating because I cant voice chat with friends.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance.

Something weird is happening.
I was away from home 14 days, and I just came back. I started some music in youtube from my desktop and the speakers sounds weird now, for no reason at all. I really doubt my son touched my computer, but still. Tried checking the configurations I dont see anything wrong, so I thought that maybe the speakers were damaged. So I went to my laptop and I connect my USB headphones and I hear music with no vocals or very very low vocals, so I just try playing with the settings now I can hear vocals and music but weird. So I tried uninstalling the driver and installing again, and I get the same result.

I don't really know if its coincidence but it's really weird. I'm more worried about my headphones since are almost new (Genius hs-04U).

THANKS A LOT

Hello-hello,
I have a problem- actually for a long time, that something is really wrong with my speakers or headphones settings... or there is some problem with driver.
So the thing is I'm unable to get any sound from any media player or youtube only from headphones. If I'm in Skype, everything is okay and I can hear people only from headphones. From media players- if I plug the headphones, the music is also coming from speakers. I have tried to turn on and off the speakers, tried to disable speakers manually in settings, but nothing helps.
Also I have tried with different headphones, but the problem is same. Tried to restore my PC to previous state when everything was okay, but didn't help.
In case you need some specifications: the driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC, version:6.10.6319.0
The PC is HP PAvilion g6 with windows 7 and CPU is AMD A4-3300M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 1,90 GHz
Hopefully you understand the problem and my little bit bad English,
Thank you,

Hi all,

I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser HD555 which work great, the only thing is that if I want to use them I have to disconnect my speakers (Logitech Z-2300) from the sound card (Xtremegamer) and plug the headphones into the same socket.

As my speakers are 2.1 they connect to the sound card via one cable. It appears they only work in this one particaler socket as does the headphones. I assume the others are for 5.1 and 7.1 setups.

The speakers came with a little controller for volume and power, but it also has a socket for headphones but when I tried that it didn't make a difference. My keyboard (Tarantula) also has a socket for headphones which doesn't seem to work either. Even the front of my case (P182) has a socket but not joy.

In the settings for the speakers in control panel I clicked automatically detect headphones and mute speakers on detection. I have no idea why it wont work.

Any suggestions? Its a pain in the *** having to reach the back of the pc and disconnect the speakers and plug in the headphones each time

Thanks in advance!

Answer:No sound through speakers but headphones working

Did those speakers ever work?

If so, did the speakers quit working after using the headphones?

Answer:speakers and headphones working at the same time

Relevance 85.69%

Whenever I turn on my computer speakers (an ordinary pair of cheap speakers that that connects to a regular audio jack in the back on my computer and is powered via a USB port) and play any media containing audio on my computer, no sound comes out of them. It doesn't matter whether or not the headphones (which plug into a speaker jack in the front of my computer) are unplugged or not. This is a new problem that I noticed for the first time yesterday.

I went to the Sound settings in my Control Panel, and selected the "Test" option for my speakers several times. The speakers clearly worked each and every time. But they still wouldn't work when I played media. I then set the speakers as my default audio device, and then they started working perfectly when I played media. But then my headphones wouldn't work, even when I turned the speakers off. They worked when I used the Test option, but no other audio would play through them.

So apparently, either my headphones or my speakers will work, depending on which one I set as my default audio device. But whichever one is not set as default will not work (except for the sounds generated by the Test option).

Does anyone know what causes this problem and how to fix it?

Answer:Speakers not working, despite headphones being unplugged.

Has this ever worked properly? or is this a problem that recently happened?

Please post a screen shot of the Sound Playback Panel and the Device Manager, Sound section.

Before building a new PC, I had a simple solution in having headphones (with a MIC)and my speakers working at the same time. I put a 2-1 splitter in the back of my machine, and had the speakers/headphones running off one connection.

Now, I have built a fancy new system, which has headphone (+ MIC) jacks at the front of the case (which I connected onto the motherboard via the Digital Audio Connector). So now I only have my speakers connected in the rear, and have plugged in the headphones into the front of the case.

My problem is that I have not been able to configure RealTek (using the latest 2.53) software that when I speak to someone in Skype, so that I can hear them both on speakers and the headphones at the same time. It has to be either hearing the other party via speakers or headphones.

In the advanced settings of RealTek, I have selected:

(*) Make Front and Rear output devices play back different audio streams simultaneously.

Since I always have the headphones plugged in, unless I take them out every time, my speakers would be muted unless I selected the option above.

Am I missing something? Any advise is appreciated!

I'm using Windows 10 & about a month ago my AE speakers stopped working but only with my PC, I checked them on my son's PC and they were fine so it was not a problem with the speakers. This happened just after a Windows 10 update. A friend helped me fix this by doing a system restore and that was all good. Now it's happened again, the speaker icon on the taskbar just says 'No Audio Output Device is installed' I ran the troubleshooter and it says 'check audio device' which I've done and the speakers are fine. Then it says 'Hardware changes might not have been detected' Do I have to do another system restore? Have any of you guys had a problem with audio that could be to do with Windows 10?

Answer:Audio not working but speakers are fine

Go into Control Panel/Sound and select Playback Devices. Ensure that the correct device has been selected as the default, probably "speakers"

Hi all, I'm having some audio issues with my brand new OMEN 17. In the middle of listening to some music on youtube, the sound slowly starting getting lower and lower. 10-15 seconds later I could barely hear anything.When I put headphones in, there is no issue with the sound. I went through all the troubleshooting, did diagnostics, re-installed the drivers from within the recovery manager, and also downloaded and installed the latest from the HP site. The issue keeps re-occuring. I'll restart the laptop and the sound will be fine for a couple of minutes. Then it starts getting quieter and then gone. (even if I close Chrome and re-open, I'll get normal sound volume for about 10 seconds before it goes)Ive tried different websites, video games, etc. Same for all. Any idea what this might be? Faulty speakers?The machine is 2 days old.... One thing that's interesting is that after the sound is gone, if I click to go forward on a song, I'll hear the sound at a regular volume for about 0.2 of a second. Just a brief sound spike before it goes quiet. Would appreciate any help.

So, the title says it all. The speakers of my Acer Predator 15 (Predator G9-591) are not working and taking a look at the HD Audio Manager says that the headphones jack is plugged in, even though there is nothing plugged in. I already used high pressure air cleaner, but that didn't work. I still think there is something wrong with the port.

I re-installed my drivers (based on the drivers from the Acer site), so I have no idea what else to do.

I'm running Windows 10.

Hello,I have lenovo laptop Y400 w/ Windows 8.1 64 bit installed. I was wondering if I could somehow modify my audio setting so that I might be able to do any or both of:I want to plug in a headphone and use both the headphone and built in speakers at the same time to play the same thing. For example when I'm playing games I want a loud game sound from the built in speakers but I also want to use the headphones to know from where the sound comes. This is usually the case when I am playing seriously.I want to plug in a headphone and use the headphone and built in speakers at the same time but for seperate applications/uses. For example, I want to play a game and listen to the game's sound from the headphone AND listen to some music from the background (as from the built in speakers), both at the same time. This is usually the case when I am chilling.I know it's a silly thing to ask for but it would really help me as I won't only use it for gaming but also for editing which would save me much time.Thank you! A few screenshots I thought might help:Spoiler (Highlight to read)Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Hi everyone! A couple of days ago I took my yoga to work and was using my headphones and since then I cannot get the speakers to work. I can still use my headphones and the sound works just fine. I had a similar issue once before, but with the microphone, not the speakers but managed to fix that myself. I updated the drivers and rebooted my laptop. When I go on playback devices the speakers are active and supposedly working (e.g. when I have music playing in the background it shows it moving on the bars, but I cannot hear anything). I also ran the Windows Audio Troubleshooter which did not help. I also had a system update two days ago, but the speakers were not working prior to that. I doubt that it is a hardware problem, considering that the speakers were working fine just before I plugged my headphones in. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?  Thank you in advance!

Hello,Sorry if this is in the wrong place, as you can tell, I'm a newbie. Anyways, I'm having a bit of a problem with my headphones and speakers. It all started around a year ago. All of a sudden, my speakers stopped working, however, the headphones continued to work fine. Then, out of nowhere a few months later, my speakers magically began working again. Only problem is, my computer doesn't seem to recognize that I have headphones plugged in, so the speakers and headphones play sound at the same time. This is a major inconvenience because I like to listen to music and watch movies, but can't do so without disturbing others anymore. There might be something lodged in the headphone jack, as the headphones don't seem to go all the way in, but it still goes in enough to play sound through them. I've tried disabling the speakers themselves, but it blocks the sound from the headphones too.So basically what I'm asking is, is there some way I can 'fool' the computer into thinking I've got headphones plugged in so I don't have to run both at the same time? Or any other way to fix it that doesn't involve high-cost repairs? Any help here would be so greatly appreciated!ThanksEDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm using a Gateway NV79 laptop running on Windows 7. It's a little over a year old.

Answer:Qosmio F50-108: speakers still working even headphones are connected

Hi

You should check the settings in Control panel -> Realtek sound manager
The speaker tab contains some options on the right.
There should be a Analog port and Digital port.

Make a right or left click on the headphone jack and check if the option has been disabled which enables the speaker sound while headphones are connected.

A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 

Answer:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

Hi all,
Probably a usual post, but can't seem to find the answer anywhere! I have got a Tecra M5 running on Windows 7 and the sound was working perfectly until recently I linked up my laptop to my tv and connected an audio jack to transfer sound to the tv so I could stream a football game.

After I had finished and un plugged the cables, the sound refuses to play through the laptop speakers, but when i plug in headphones, the sound comes out fine. I have tried unistalling and reinstalling the sound driver but to no avail.

Can someone please help resolve this issue?

Many thanks,

Sunny nagra

Answer:Re: Sound not working through Tecra M5 speakers but work through headphones

I hope you must be clear that on this virtual way we can just speculate what the problem can be.
My first thought was that maybe small switcher placed in audio line out jack is pinched or blocked somehow and your notebook ?thinks? external audio jack is connected all the time.

What you can do is to check all sound settings and be sure everything is set to ?default? settings.

Hi, I recently bought an Inspiron 17-7778 and have already found a problem. I use a pair of Razer Tiamat Headphones, which is also a headset. When I originally plugged in the mic cord, (Note: There is only one audio jack) the computer asked me what the cord was. I said that it was a microphone and that was that. The only problem is that not only does the mic not work, but when I plug in the audio jack, It doesn't recognize the audio or the mic jacks being plugged in, even though it tells me that I plugged something in. I've looked through a couple other similar forum posts and all of the answers suggest using different headphones, but that isn't an option for me because this headset was not cheap. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Headphones not working, but Speakers are and the Microphone doesn't work.

Redtrumpet12the mic not work
Hello. If you headset has 2 separate plugs -- one for the headphones and the other for the mic -- then the mic will not work when plugged into a Dell laptop with a single headset jack (aka a combo jack).
Your headset's plugs are of the TRS type (tip/ring/sleeve, or 3 segments). The combo jack will work with headphones with a TRS plug, but will not work with a mic with a TRS plug. The mic would have to have a TRRS (4 segment) plug, in order to work.
Amazon sells some TRS-to-TRRS adapaters, but we have received mixed reports about them. Sometimes they work but very often do not.
Another alternative is to get an inexpensive usb audio jack, and use its jacks instead of the laptop's combo jack.

As I said, the headphones of the headset should work okay with the combo jack. If you are not getting audio through the headphones, try a different set of headphones. If still no luck, re-install the audio driver.
1.    Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

Answer:SA50-532: Lost sound in speakers, but working with headphones

Hello Kiran

Not easy to say but I believe that there is some hardware problem. Whole settings in volume control have influence on speakers and headphones. If the headphones works perfect I assume that there is some problem with speakers.

Your unit is not old one and the warranty should be still valid. Contact service partner in your country and let them check the unit.

Ok guys this problem happened last march/april ish and I tried a number of things at the time to fix the issue but with no luck. I just got done working out of state for the summer and did not have my pc with me so I'm trying to have another go at fixing the problem. Summary of the issue- no problems ever with sound until one day it just stopped working. Both headphones and speakers wouldn't work even if they were plugged in. I wasn't getting any "no audio devices detected" kinds of errors or anything like that. So I tried reinstalling the realtek HD audio drivers (i was just using onboard sound at the time) and no luck. I also tried doing a few system restores to before the issue and that didn't do anything either. Finally I bought a pci-e sound card, a sounblaster cause thats all the local best buy had, installed that and still no luck with either speakers or headphones. Today I tried removing the sound card and using on board audio and still no luck. Audio device manager will recognize that I plug in my headphones into either the front speaker jack or the one on the back but just doesn't produce sound. I even opened up the pc and looked at the connections on the mobo to make sure the ones for audio hadn't come lose and that doesn't seem to be the issue either. Please any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance

Answer:sound stopped working completely, headphones and speakers

Post a screenshot of the Device Manager, Sound section, for starters. I'll try to help you.

When you had the SoundBlaster installed, you need to disable the integrated (Realtek) audio so there are no conflicts. Also, you would need to disconnect the front panel headset/mic connection to the motherboard and connect it to the SoundBlaster to have the front panel jacks work. The SoundBlaster would have needed to be set as the default playback device, instead of Realtek if it was still enabled.

It's as if it doesn't detect the headphones. It says my Realtek audio driver is up-to-date. When I go to manage audio devices, there's only one device listed called "Speakers / Headphones", so I don't know if when I plug my headphones in it's supposed to detect it separately. I've tried multiple headphones, all of which work with other devices. Also, there are two drivers listed under "sound, video, and game controllers". One is Realtek Audio and the other is Intel(R) Display Audio. Should I reinstall them both? This is a new laptop that I got to replace my old laptop which had (different) sound problems, so I'm very frustrated and at my wit's end, help is appreciated, thank you.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15: Headphones not working, sound comes through speakers when plugged in

First, make sure the headphone cable is fully inserted...
Then you show get a popup to allow you to select the device if you are using a Combined Audio Port.
If you aren't getting the popup, check the task manager to see if on the Startup Tab a Waves MaxxAudio entry is set to enabled.
If you look at the processes tab you should have two entries for Waves, one blue square and one green circle.

Answer:Headphones stopped working without reason, but speakers work perfectly

Open Device Manager, remove driver and device for your sound chipset, open up System in Control Panel, Click on Advanced System Settings to open System Properties, Click on Hardware tab, click on Device installation settings, change to no to not allow Windows to automatically install driver and device when you reboot, click ok, reboot, log in, install the correct driver for that device off of a USB stick by running the .exe file for it. Then reboot and everything should be back to normal.

Hi all,

As the title suggests, my internal speakers aren't working anymore since a day.
The sound is perfectly working when i plug in headphones (or external speakers).

Things i've tried include:
- checking all windows-related sound options
- restoring the laptop back to when it was working
- re-installing the drivers.

The speakers are shown playing in the sound configuration window when i play a sound, i just hear nothing...

If you have another suggestion, please share it.

Thanks in advance!

You can do last test and reinstall OS using original recovery image you got with your notebook.

Hi there, Bought new SSD, was not working, upgraded BIOS to newest 1.40 version. SSD working just fine. But now I noticed my keyboard light (fn + page up) is not working. Was fine before. Anyone else having this issue?Another issue: laptop speakers are not working. The line out (connected headphones) is working fine. My idea was to report this problem to lenovo tech staff but I wasn't able to find a way to do it online (only phone service). cheers. --Lenovo ThinkPad X201 3323-8TG

Answer:X201 problems after BIOS upgrade (keyboard light not working, laptop speakers not working)

Hello Infro!
 
Welcome to the Support Forums. I can imagine your frustration. I looked at the Driver Matrix for your X201 and it looks like there have been some other updates released recently. I am not sure of your operating system, so you may need to verify they are correct, but all are listed above in the driver matrix.
 
Check to see if you have the current version of these drivers:
 
Hotkey Features Integration 
Lenovo Power Management for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP (32-bit, 64-bit)
Also check for Power Manager Patches
Solid State Drive firmware update utility
 
Let me know if you have any questions and if everything is updated.

Hi,

I have a dual boot of Fedora and Windows, and when I boot into Fedora, my headphones work fine. When I boot into Windows 7 64bit, my headphones don't work. My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!

Janac

Answer:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

Hello, I plugged in some headphones via the jack for the first time after owning my X301 for 2 months.  Ever since then, the laptop speakers stopped working!!!  If I want to hear anything, I now have to listen via my headphones.  The beeping I used to hear when I plug/unplug the AC adapter is gone, too.  I have Vista/32 Home Premium. Here is what I tried so far: -Pressed the mute/unmute button on the keyboard.-Adjusted the volume via the keyboard and from the Conexant icons in the taskbar.-Disabled/enabled the speaker and (and the microphone too) from the Conexant menus.-Disabled and enabled the Conexant sound hardware from the Vista Device Manager.-Updated the Conexant Audio Drivers from 4.92.5 to 4.92.7.0 and then back to 4.92.5 (rebooted).-Enabled and disabled the beep options within the BIOS. I have noticed when sound is playing, the Conexant software visually indicates (via the green bar) for the speaker, but of course no sound comes from the speaker!  Lenovo tech support wants me to do a recovery or send the laptop in!  Help!Message Edited by toughluck on 08-09-2009 08:42 AM

Hey guys,

I have a problem with my Equium A200PSAF5E,

My sound is perfect, however when I plug in my headphones, nothing.

My headphones are showing 'connected' and when I perform the 'test headphones' I hear the sound through the headphones.

This is driving me insane as I can hear the hidious TV

Answer:Equium A200 PSAF5E - Internal speakers working but headphones aren't

This is very strange?. So you are 100% sure that your headphones are ok?
Did you test your headphones with other devices?

Did you try to update the sound driver? If not update it.

But not be honest, it looks more like a headphone jack fault as a software issue.

Anyway, the sound driver should be updated?

I get sound over the headphones no problem when listening to computer files using Windows Media

But if I want to share what i am listening to, say a radio broadcast, over the internal speakers, the file plays but no sound comes out.

The speakers have not been muted, and are set at a mid volume level

it has been this way three weeks now. About three weeks before this happened, I could not get my RealPlayer music files to play.

I wonder if there is something about my computer choosing a default (or maybe I chose one) What would be ideal for me is if this computer would let me alternate between programs - but it seems to prefer that I use one system or another (My old Windows '95 always let me alternate - I could use Windows Media for a half hour, the RealPlaye, then PlayJ.)

Any help appreciated

There are two of them, I opened the notebook there is two separate plugs
Are the speakers went down?

But how it comes that both at the same time went down?
Is there any other configuration I have to do?

Please help

Answer:Satellite A50 no sound through the speakers but headphones work fine

Hi

Maybe the speakers are not faulty but the tiny switch which is placed in the headphone port malfunctions ?:|
The tiny switch mutes the speakers when the headphones are plugged in.
Try to move the headphone jack a little bit? maybe you could notice some differences?

But just one question; can you see some yellow exclamation marks in the device manager? Did you try to reinstall the sound driver?
If not then I recommend to reinstall it!

Hello,

I have a sound problem with my computer (satellite L 70)
I've tried everything but nothing to do, no sound output, but by plugging headphones into the audio port its working well, then I uninstall Conexant reinstall, same for dts sound but its still not working,

thank you

Answer:Satellite L70 - no sound from speakers but headphones work fine

In my opinion the notebook symptoms are clear enough: it does not look like sound driver or system problem because the sound appears using the headphones.

I think the internal speakers are faulty?. it looks strange to me that both speakers started to malfunction at the same time but such issue could happen.

But before you would contact the Toshiba authorized service provider for fix, I would recommend you to recover the notebook just to be 100% sure that this issue is not related to software/system fault.

Hello Community, My THinkpad T410, Type 2912-45G, Windows 7 (64bit) has a problem with the speakers. Starting last monday (June 25th) my speakers stop working. When I boot the TP you can hear a static click through the speakers and it plays the windows sound for one second only. After the second you can hear another static click and the speaker stops working. Thats pretty much the way it is with all other audio content, when the TP is booted. After pressing the Mute-Button or the volume-up or volume-down buttons the speakers will resume working for a second or so (still the static click, right before this second and afterward). When I plug in my Headpones everything works fine. When I unplug my headphones, speakers do work again for another second. I allready updated my BIOS, installed and uninstalled the driver, activated the sound-card (CONEXANT 20585 HD AUDIO), tried to update the driver. But nothing worked so far. I allready checked whether the switch in the headphone jack is stuck, but I couldn't find anything. Did anyone experience the same or a similar problem? As the speakers do work for the mentioned second I assume, that the Hardware should be fine. As the headphones work properly the sound-card should be detected and istalled correctly. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out on this. Sending the TP in (it is still whitin warranty) is going to be my last option since I need the TP for work. Thank you very much.... Read more

So basically it started a few days ago (29th of August 2016) and my headphones (razer kraken 7.1) stopped working and the video that i was watching on youtube stopped working too. i assumed it was just a glitch or smthin so i just restarted and it started to work again, about 30 mins later it happens again so i decide to investigate; i can't play any youtube, but i still loads, i can't open windows media player, i can't play songs on spotify, i can still go through the internet just fine, i can even play overwatch.
So i tried switching to my speakers, and everything works just fine, and as soon as i switched to my headphones it stopped working. i have restarted my rig several times over that past few days, and the headphones stop working between 20mins - 3 hours
i have updated my realtek and razer synapse drivers, so i am stumped as to what i should do
what i think it might be
virus
driver problem
help will be appreciated
BTW i added DXDiag

Answer:Sound/video Stop wrking with headphones, fine with speakers (realtek)

The headset, according to the Dxdiag suggests they are USB. USB headsets do not use the PC's sound card (e.g. Realtek) but instead take digital data and convert it to audio inside the headset.

Have you tried a different USB port? e.g. if you are using a front USB port, try a rear port.
You could also "refresh" the USB headset. Plug it in then go to the Device Manager and uninstall the headset. Disconnect it from the PC and then restart the PC. After Windows has started plug in the headset and Windows should detect and reinstall it.

Hello, I woke up today to find that the speakers on my Ideapad U530 Touch were no longer working correctly. I have spent several hours trying to fix this issue, but have had no luck so far. I have read through many threads on here and across the internet, but none of the solutions have worked.  The speakers on my laptop are not producing any sound, but when I plug in headphones they work fine. When I plug my headphones in and take them out I get the prompt in the bottom right of my screen notifying me that they were either inserted or removed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. I have run Windows Update. I have performed a system restore. I am out of ideas and would really appreciate any help. Thanks.

Hi there, I have a strange problem with my laptop. Details are as follows:
HP NX9110 - standard specs, Windows XP SP2

The other day I was watching a vid using media player I think and the speakers were working fine. I then opened Nero 8s Soundtrack and notised that the speaker were not working. Tried media player again and still not working. Numerous reboots, removing Nero 8, reinstalling sound drivers had no effect. Notised that the headphones still work fine.

I also have a linux boot disk and the speakers work fine under linux (this points to something software related in windows).
Turned the laptop off for about a day and started back up.....speakers working fine again.

They have stoped twice since (have used Nero a few times but cant find a pattern). They did stop at one stage for an hour or so then just randomly start back up when I was having a look through processes in task manager......dont think it was due to ending one but it could have been.

The whole time the headphones work fine.

The speakers have now stoped again and I cant seem to get them working again.

Any ideas? This really has me stumped and I dont really want to reinstall windows. Is it possible that some process has picked up the speakers and not released them?
 

Answer:Laptop speaker not working, headphones do.

Bump.
Anyone got any ideas? Or know of somewhere I can ask this question?

So, I've had this laptop since June of 2016, no problems before this week (the laptop was bought refurbished which was unknown to me because it was listed as NEW on eBay so I might look into that as well but I have no warranty at the moment because it ended in May of 2016) After I went to do a simple update of software on my laptop and restarted the device, I began to experience issues with my headphones. The left side began to go out and I would have to move my headphones around in the jack and all of a sudden the next day, no sound in the left and all of the sound just comes from the right. When I go to test the headphones in a different laptop, tablet and cell phone, both sides work perfectly so, I know it isn't the headphones.  I tried to get assistance from a microsoft technician but they did everything (updated drivers, etc) and still, to no avail, the problem persists. I cannot speak to HP since it would cost me out of pocket just to be on the phone with them from what I've seen so, if anybody in the forums could help, it would be appreciated.  As stated, the headphones (and all headphones) are fine and working 100% in other devices except for this laptop.

Hi - Using IBM T42 with External Monitor. When booting Win XP Home SP3, both monitors work, then laptop monitor goes blank. External monitor works fine. I have tried everything I can think of - resetting displays, changing ATI Radeon mobility 7500 driver, disconnecting external monitor, Function key combinations, booting in safe mode. Nothing works. But when the laptop boot starts, the laptop monitor works for a few minutes then shuts down. Seems like a switch is not working properly.
Any ideas as to how to solve this problem. And the laptop monitor was working fine until a few days ago, the last time I used it alone, i.e., separate from the external monitor.

Many thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Laptop Monitor Not Working External Fine

Being that the ibm t42thinkpad is an older model its very possible that the whole screen will need replaced as the ribbon cable, inverters, or backlights might have gone bad.replacing the whole screen might be easier to do than trying to find the individual parts needed.

I'm trying to get a Windows XP Home laptop to connect to the web wirelessly. The modem/router (leased from my DSL provider) gives me an address & other network settings fine. I can get to the modem/router & bring up it's configuration webpage, but that's all. I can't even ping my network printers ro PCs. Other wireless computers on the network have no problems.

netsh interface ip delete arpcache
netsh int ip reset /log.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns

AS we havew properly understood your issue pleaseds perform these steps carefully : Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows:In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.1. Access the ?Device Manager? .2. Expand the Batteries category.3.

Replace the battery making sure all connections are solid, then plug in the power cord. Hopefully things are good.Hope this helps. Nitin singh guleria

Obviously its not the device. It has something to do with your computer.

When you plug in the device just let it sit for a minute, vista should go and get the proper drivers/firmware for the device.

Watch you tray in the bottom right hand side of the screen. Does a box pop up when you plug in the device.

Do you have a firewall installed if so which one?

I recently got a new laptop.  I'm not sure if this problem has always existed on it, or if it is new.  However, I am noticing two things:

2.  If I try to go to Staples Easy Rebates site, I get mixed results.  (URL: https://rebate.staples.com/staples/tracksearch.action).  On Chrome, I believe it errors out but the URL goes in a loop and tries to connect.  If I look at the URL I believe it is trying to redirect to an error page.  On IE I get the same issue.  On Firefox, the page loads.
