Realtek HD. Speakers not working, headphones half working.

Question: Realtek HD. Speakers not working, headphones half working.

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!

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!

Answer:Can I have speakers & headphones both working in Win 7 + RealTek?

Wow - never thought that no one knows how or possibly, is there no solution for this?

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...

Hello,
I just got a new PC, it was all working fine until just now - I've had it for less than a week.
It's the Asus G551JM Gaming Laptop with Windows 8.1 and using headphones through a jack.

I was listening to audio when all of a sudden the audio cut out. Naturally I looked under 'playback devices' to find Realtek was still the default and that sound was supposedly still coming out. I unplugged the headphones and the music played through the speakers as normal. Then I plugged the headphones back in to the jack and nothing. I tried a different pair of headphones and no luck. I thought it was the headphones so I tried them both in another device and they worked perfectly.

I really need help with fixing this issue as I work with audio, can anyone offer advice? Thanks.

Answer:Urgent | Headphones not working with Realtek

Hi.I have my headphones connected to my front panel audio(but from my front panel,there are 2 white cables that are connected to the back of my motherboard,i called someone to do this for me,and he said that my case is not original,and he cant connect the pins to the motherboard,because in my motherboard manual its different pins and my case its not original) http://i.imgur.com/BQCD8qq.jpg
And as you see its speakers,i want to be headphones,but i dont know how to change it,i have my latest drivers.Can you help me ? I can listen to music,but i use the headphones to listen to Binaural beats and i dont want the sound to be distorted by the speakers.Actually i dont even now if the speakers as output distorted the sound,but i think it will be better if its set to headphones.

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.

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.

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,

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.

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

Answer:Speakers and Headphones stopped working

Also are two different brand, speakers(no usb) is Logitech and the headphones as mentioned are Genius.

EDIT: Tried with another regular normal headphones and they are working fine. But what about these expensive hardwares? No guarantee...

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 :)

Answer:Speakers and headphones stopped working

If you had sound before the update and don't now, then roll back the driver. Start-> (right click) My Computer -> Manage; select device manager and go to your audio driver and under Driver tab select "Roll Back."

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 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!

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.

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

So my speakers cut in and out rather regularly. Tried reinstalling drivers, and different audio qualities and configs. When I test, I usually get some of it at good quality, sometimes I get nothing and a little static. 
With headphones it works fine. 

Answer:Speakers half working (Precision 7510)

neven87When I test,
Do you test with the ePSA diagnostic Quick Audio Check?
neven87sometimes I get nothing
If you ever fail to hear the test tones in the Perform Quick Audio Check (see picture) then there is a hardware failure with the speakers. Because the failure is intermittent, the cause could be a loose connection. You could try re-seating the connector and see if doing that fixes it. Or contact tech support for a repair if still under warranty.
neven87With headphones it works fine. 
Even if you used some other test than the ePSA, the issue is probably with the speakers simply because the headphone signal continues uninterrupted.

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.

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.

So my laptop was working perfectly fine last night and it had no issues whatsoever.When I switch it on this morning I find that the speakers aren't working.I tried plugging in my earphones and the sound that comes is distorted.I've tried reinstalling the audio drivers with device manager, rolling back the realtek audio drivers and then updating it with DEvice Manager, I've used the HP Support application and followed the steps given there(including the BIOS diagnostic thing where the speakers dont work and the audio coming from the earphones is Distorted).I've also updated the BIOS and the whole system inlcuding the windows version has been updated.The problem still persists.Please HELP!

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)

Does anyone know how to fix the audio on a Win 7 machine? I have no sound on my speakers or with my headphones. I have powered the system off and back on with no success. I have looked in my services and do not see any audio services running or stopped. (not sure what to look for there anyways) I have unplugged the speakers and plugged them back into a different USB port with no success. Headphones not functional in the only place I can plug them in.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Thank you

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!

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.

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.

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.

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

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.

I lost sound in speakers suddenly. I checked sound drivers, sound controls and everything. It looked working, but i could not hear the sound, but when i plugged in headphones, to my surprise, i could hear the sound.

Please suggest me, what might be problem behind this. Is it a hardware problem or software problem and how to come out of this.

Thanks for your help in advance,

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.

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.

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.

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.

I just got a brand new Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system for my laptop.

These speakers have amazing ratings, and my friends who have had them before said the ones they had sounded amazing for them, and yet they, like me, notice the following problem in mine.

The bass is great, but for some reason my system seems too bassy. Like I know I can turn down the subwoofer, but it's as if all the low/bassy sounds are always drowning out the higher/vocals, which always seem to be a bit dulled down.

I have a Lenovo Y560p laptop with Realtek HD Audio. I was thinking perhaps I have this sound problem because it doesn't let me select 2.1 for my settings, and it's stuck on "stereo". I've tried downloading and installing drivers from Realtek's website.

So I've got an ASUS ROG G551JK laptop for almost 2 years already. Never had this problem before.

While I was playing CS:GO I tried to tweak the sound quality a little bit from the Realtek HD Audio Manager. The game was running and minimalized. The default sound quality was 24 bits, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality). I changed it to 24 bits, 192000 Hz and the headphones stopped working. At least while they are plugged in the laptop. I tried them with two different devices and they work just fine. So the problem is not in them for sure. Note that the build in speakers work just fine, so the sound card is ok...I think...or I hope so...

Immediately I quit CS:GO and tried to fix the problem by reinstalling the drivers of the sound card. I deleted the Realtek HD Audio Manager and reinstalled it again. Doesn't work.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Answer:Ideapad Z560 speakers stop working after a couple of minutes but the headphones are fine

hi arcic,
 
 Welcome to Lenovo Community!!
 
Can we try to uninstall and reinstall the Sound driver
You have to go to Device manager
      Press Windows button together with R
           You will have a runbox and type there devmgmt.msc hit Enter
 
Look under Sound, video and game controllers
     look for anything like Conexant High Definition Audio
         right click on it then uninstall
 
Now download the driver here
     Conexant Audio Driver      IN2AUD34WW5.exe     151 MB
And install that.
 
-See if that works
 
Hope this helps

  Hello , I've had a lot of audio problesms with my laptop once I had updated to Windows 10. My audio has just given up on me. During the starting , my audio jack never used to work. Speakers used to work fine then. Latley my speakers have gone crazy too. Once i power up my laptop ,  the sound works both on my speakers and my headphones clearly. For some time though. After like half an hour , the sound just dies automatically. It doesn't play any sounds including test sounds. Sometime i can't even play a video when there's no output ( Vlc) also a song cannot be played to any of the music players due to sound being off.  I have to restart my laptop every time to get the sound back. And then again the problem continues. I've tried every troubleshooting methods that i've found both on the  laptop and the forums here. My audio driver IDT High Definition audio. All my enhancements were disabled. Beats audio control is also reseted. Updated drivers through HP Support and also 3rd party , none of them worked. Also changed the driver from IDT to High Definition Audio ( Microsoft ) and was set as default. Have tried the default audio quality too, still couldn't fix. Even then the audio troubles contrinued. Although, my microphone works perfectly. I was able to make a skype call and the other person was able to hear me but still i had no sound output. I've never done any changes to the settings since t... Read more

Dear all,

I've been facing an issue with my sound lately (potentially linked to the win 8.1 update - as seems to be the case of a lot of people); I'm unable to get my sound to work, and I'm getting the following error message: "No speakers or headphones are plugged in".

I've been trying out a number of things already explained in this forum (reinstalling drivers, disabling things in device manager, playing around in the Realtek settings, removing 8.1 updates), but I've been unluck so far. Please see below for more details. Many thanks in advance.

Answer:Win 8.1 No speakers or headphones are plugged in (Realtek)

What is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section? I see a USB device listed in one of your screenshots. What is that?
The Speakers are set as default. "Quadraphonic" is an old/rarely used speaker type, is that what you have?

Have you installed R2.75 RealTek High Definition Codecs version from the RealTek site? That is the latest and supports 8.1 (some older versions do not work properly with 8.1).
Realtek

Although unrelated to the speakers, I see you do not have a default recording device set. You should set "Stereo Mix" as the default recording device.

Ok,
Here we go I'm have a Alienware Aurora early model running Win7 64 bit home. Have been using a OOntz bluetooth speaker which i would connect through speakers>playback devices> speakers/headphones. This had been working fine for the last 3 years.

Now that had picked up another new oontz i went into devices and printers and add a new device as soon as that tried to install there was a error I I just unistalled it and reinstalled my older oontz at that point I noticed that the speaker / headphone option that I have always used was showing unplugged (no red x or anything)

So now the bluetooth speaker will not play music. But as soon as I turn on the OOntz to pair it synce up right away and I head the ding through the speaker as well as shows that I'm connected properly. If I turn off the PC I even hear the shut down dint through the speaker.

So now I have been in contact w/ Cambridge Audio (OONTZ) and there at a loss for help. I have been searching online and have read hit the F2 and go into bios and make sure audio is enabled and it was.

Dont kno what do do next?

Win7 64 bit home
have reinstalled the correct widcomm and realtek drivers and that did nothing as I said the bluetooth is working as i can access my cell through it as well as see that the OONtz is connected correctly and do hear sounds from it just no music????

Hi, everyone

I just recieved a computer that I purchased yesterday and everything was working fine on it until I went to go plug in headphones. I plugged them in using the front jack and I got this whining hissing sound. I tried using the back jack and the sound went away. Another problem i'm having is regardless of what jack i'm using is that whenever I plug the headphones my speakers don't turn off and sound goes though them instead of the headphones unless I set the headphones as the default device.

Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Realtek HD Audio - No Sound through speakers \ headphones

I just went through this with another user and a Gigabyte motherboard. Never really resolved it as the user didn't want to do a complete reinstall. Everything else had been done and the user still had the problem.

However, lets try on yours.

First thing, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

If that does not fix it, uninstall the RealTek in the device manager but ALSO Uninstall the drivers. Then restart and when Windows starts, it will install the sound but it should be with the generic Windows "High Definition Audio Driver". See if the sound works with this configuration. If it does, it sounds like the RealTek driver you have may be corrupt. Download the R2.75 High Definition Codecs driver direct from RealTek and see how that works. www.realtek.com

I have an Asus M4A89TD pro / usb3 that has Realtek audio onboard. I have just finished my build and have never been able to get any sound from any of my IO ports. None of the ports recognize anything that I plug in (i only have 2 sets of 2.1 speakers, one uses a single light green jack and the other uses the light green jack and a black jack.) I DO get sound from some old usb headphones. The integrated Realtek audio does not detect any analog connection (tried with mic/speakers/headphones) in any of the jacks.

I removed the current drivers through uninstalling from device manager, rebooted, then installed the latest drivers from Asus, then Realtek directly. Additionally, I disconnected the front audio jacks from the motherboard in case that was causing a problem. Windows detects the audio device and there is no problems in device manager.

I've gone through every available option in the Realtek sound control options, but I'm at a loss. I have a USB headset that works without a problem, but I can't get these analog speakers to work. Any advice? The "set default device" is grayed out as an option for the speakers as well as saying they are "not plugged in".

I went through all the above several times with different drivers, uninstalled my graphics card (completely removed it from the motherboard during one setting), RMA'ed my motherboard, spoke to Asus support (who state it is a driver/software issue) to no avail over about a 3 week period.

Answer:realtek audio not detecting speakers or headphones.

Unplug all your inputs.
Plug in one device at a time.
If the Realtek software is functioning properly you should see a pop up after plugging in the green main speaker plug.


After confirming by pressing OK, you should get the following.

You should then plug in the black input and go through the confirmation process, again.

This seems like such a simple thing and I don't understand why it's not working.

- I have speakers plugged into the rear green jack
- I have headphones plugged into the front audio jack
- In Control Panel > Sound, speakers appear (and "Realtek Digital Output" - I'm not sure what that is) but not headphones
- In Realtek HD Audio Manager, BOTH audio jacks seem to be assigned to speakers

I want to switch between my speakers & my headphones.

I saw in other threads that some have had success by clicking on the settings in the top right of the Realtek HD Audio Manager panel. However, I don't have that option (see attached).

Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:Realtek doesn't identify speakers & headphones

Your RealTek HD Manager looks similar to mine. I also show the Stereo Mix (recording device).

Normally, only the "Speaker" is shown in the Sound/Playback panel. Also normally, when you plug in your headset to the front panel headset jack it will mute the speakers. SOME RealTek panels will allow the option to either set it for the "normal" speaker mute when a headset is plugged in or allow the speaker to also be on when the headset is plugged in.

I don't see that option in your RealTek panel. In mine it is there. There is a link in the upper right of the Panel that states: "Device Advanced Settings" and this is where you set the option for the speakers to be on or off. In some cases the PC vendor has disabled this function in the chip.

In most cases the Dell provided sound driver is preferred as non-Dell many times will either not work or not work correctly. You can try the generic driver from RealTek to see if it will work - no guarantees. Create a System Restore point BEFORE installing the RealTek driver and also have the Dell sound driver on the hard drive in case its needed if the generic RealTek doesn't work.

So as the title says, I recently built a new computer and I've had many problems regarding sound issues. Firstly, Realtek HD audio manager doesn't recognize my USB headset (sennheiser U320 gaming) OR my logitec headset as a device. The only thing it recognizes are my audio jack speakers. However, these devices do work if I go around realtek HD audio manager and then run them through windows audio manager.

My second problem is that these USB headphones are both showing up in windows audio manager as been speakers and not headphones. My windows updates are up to date and as far as I can tell, all my mobo drivers are up to date.

Please see the attachment.

Any suggestions/help is much appreciated.

Thank you!

Answer:USB Headphones showing as speakers & Realtek not recongising either.

USB devices do not use the PC's sound device. They are taking digital audio and converting it to analog for the headset. In effect the USB speakers have a built in sound card.

Also, I notice you have the RealTek digital output set as default. With the digital output set as default, regular analog speakers will not work.

Hello

When I plug in my headphones to the back of my computer where my onboard soundcard is located, it seems that realtek detects my headphones as speakers, and as a consequence, the volume is way too low.

When connected to the front of my computer however, realtek detects my headphones as headphones, and the sound is much louder, however for practical reasons I prefer to have my headphones plugged into the back of computer, but the low volume is a bit of a problem.

Answer:Realtek HD audio recognizes my headphones as speakers

The rear GREEN speaker jack is for amplified computer speakers. When something is plugged in to that jack, the PC will assume its speakers, since that is what the jack is designated.

Everything was working fine until about 9 months ago. I have tried switching settings on realtek and the windows control panel to headphone mode, but no matter what settings are on, my computer fails to mute the speakers when playing through headphones. There are absolutely NO troubleshooting topics on windows or realtek websites about this. Help!

Answer:My Realtek Audio Driver Plays Headphones and Speakers

I think I remember in the realtek settings on my old computer it said something along the lines of "disable front audio when headphone is plugged in" with a check box to toggle on and off.

-- do you see any settings resembling that?
If you have already found the on/off and it does not work, try uninstalling and re-installing the audio drivers and software.

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.

Headphones themselves aint shown under "Sound":
It appears that both, speakers and headphones are used as one source for audio-out.

I have a Dell Inspiron 12-5378 Signature Edition computer, and I recently bought SkullCandy Crusher headphones. The headphones do not seem to be working and are not even showing up in my playback devices. I'm wondering if there is something that I can do to get them working?
My other question is that the Mic Cable for the SkullCandy headphones is 3.5mm plug which seems to be sticking out a tiny bit when I plug it in. Is it possible that the computer isn't recognizing the device because the plug is too long? I can't seem to find any detailed specs on the headphone jack for this computer. If this is the issue, does anyone have an adapter they recommend?
Is the issue my headphones or the laptop?

Hello. Push the plug extra firmly into the jack and see if it can go in the rest of the way.  When it is detected, you should get a popup asking you to select the type of device you are using.
There aren't any detailed specs from Dell about the combo jack, just general information that we pass along on this discussion board. We have been getting reports from owners that the jacks on some late model Dell are tight.

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.]

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.
