Sound through headphones, but no sound from internal speaker...

Question: Sound through headphones, but no sound from internal speaker...

Can anyone help please. I have had my HP Pavilion TS 11 Notebook PC for a little while now and from day one there has been no sound fom the internal speakers. If I plug headphones into the headphone socket the sound is there. There is a circular symbol and "dts/Sound+" written on the notebook if that helps. How can I get this rectified? Kind Regards Steve

Hi, I've installed a new Windows XP including SP3 (don't use the recovery discs). I've also installed all necessary drivers from the levonvo support page (no unknown devices left in device manager). The problem now is, I can't hear a sound from the integrated speakers (no, they are not muted). I can hear a sound if I plug in headphones. If I unplug them it doesn't switch back to internal speakers. How can I fix this?I also checked the FAQ and tried all hints without any success.

I just upgraded my OS to Win 7, but I realised that when I play any sound, it come out of my speakers fine, but my headphones has no sound at all. How do I solve it? I plugged my headphones into the original jack, I have also tried plugging them into the other jacks, but still there is no sound. How do I fix it so both my speakers and my headphones has sound? If I plug my headphones into the jack I plug my speakers in, there is sound in my headphones though ..

I can not get any sound from my X41 since I reloaded Windows XP a month ago. I am sure it used to have sounds. I have replaced/updated all the drivers that I can. It seems to have a SoundMax Digital Audio device (or drivers anyway) when I look at the "Sounds and Audio Devices" section of Control Panel. It also has all sounds turned up/note muted etc. Headphones do not work although a microphone does seem to register sound in. Any ideas? Thanks Pete

Answer:No sound at all from X41 speaker or headphones

Sorted, the mute key still mutes even when all the items on the screen show that nothing is muted!

Windows Vista.
some time ago we put in a usb webcam with a jack for built in microphone. I accidentally pulled the jack for the speakers and when i replaced the jack a box came up asking what we had plugged in i pressed side speakers and ok but the speakers would not work. We tried headphones in the front green jack and they worked so put the speakers jack in there too clicked the corresponding side speakers and clicked ok and they worked. The wouldn't work at the back. Yesterday I removed the speakers jack to put the headphones in and the same thing has now happened neither speakers or headphone worked.
I have made sure all drivers are up to date, have checked all volume levels etc and plugs. Have turned computer off and on and with jacks in, prior to turning on..
The fact that it was all working one minute and not the next and that it's happened before, is really confusing any ideas?
 

Answer:No speaker or headphones sound

Have you tried System Restore? Its basically designed for this type of issue

If that doesn't work I'd suggest uninstalling all your sound driver/program, and restarting, then install the most up to date driver again

I just bought a lifechat Lx-2000 and accidentally plugged in the jacks into the back of the computer while unplugging the speaker chord. I realized my mistake and plugged in the chord again and plugged in the 2 jacks for the headset in the front. However, after that, sound no longer came through my speakers or through the headset. I have windows 7 and when i check the sound in the system tray it displays the speakers/headphones as receiving sound (or whatever the bouncing green bar means). How can i fix my speakers so that they receive sound from my computer again.

Note that I've already restarted a few times as well as reinstalled the original sound driver and tried all the troubleshooters. The chord is plugged into the same jack as before. The only thing I can think of is that somehow the wires inside were disconnected when i unplugged it...

Answer:speaker and headphones - no sound

Hi Pwi,
Could you give us a little more info about your computer, OS, sound card...
Anyway, the first thing to check (after cables) is the mixer settings. Right click the speaker icon below right. There you can see if anything is muted.

Hi everyone,
Sound is only coming out of my left speaker, the secondary speaker (the one without hte volume button, headphone slots etc.) Wiggling the cable used to make it work again but now it just doesn't work at all it seems. Is there anything I can do about it?
My speakers are Logitech Z323

Answer:Sound only coming out of one speaker, comes out of both headphones

Try making and un-making the connection and even a little blast of compressed air to try cleaning the receptacle. Does the other channel come on when you wiggle the plug?

I can't get my sound to stop coming out the PC speaker. With XP, when I plugged in my headphones the PC speaker muted, but now I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and I can't get it to shut up.

This is a problem mostly because nobody likes my music (c'mon, guys, it's just Vince Guaraldi ).

Would it be advisable to try to remove the speaker entirely? That's what my dad did when my alarm clock kept going off at midnight .

At work I have an HP DC7600 which is exactly one year old and it comes with an onboard speaker. I use this computer for CBT (computer based training) and I can hear the lessons through the mono speaker from inside the case and it's not real loud, but loud enough in a quiet room. The problem I have is when other people in he same small room use nearby comuters for their CBT and everybody can hear everybody else's audio from different lessons. Makes it a bit hard to concentrate. So off to the store we went and got a bunch of USB and regular headphones so that we could do CBT without bothering the neighbors. But when we plug in the headphone what happens is both the internal speaker emits sound as well as the headphones. I would have thought that the internal speaker would know that we plugged a headphone in and would automatically shut off. Is this commonplace or is there something I can configure to get the internal speaker to shut down when I plug a headphone in?
 

Answer:Sound through speaker and headphones at the same time

Normally pushing the headphones all the way into the headphone jack will stop any other speaker from emitting sound

I suspect your new Headphones are USB




got a bunch of USB and regular headphonesClick to expand...

Do both the regular and USB Headphones do the same thing?

If so, go to Control Panel-->Sounds...-->Audio tab
And confirm your default audio playback, and tick only use preferred devices

You may also have a Sound/Audio start menu (program) group
Just search the list
There can be adjustments made in this too (just to be confusing!)

Okay I may be posting in the wrong subject but this is sort of a split issue. I'm currently running dual monitors using my monitor and also running my TV via an HDMI. The problem I'm having isn't with dual monitors but with the sound between them.

What would be ideal is that when I'm running a game or whatever on my monitor and then maybe streaming a youtube, movie, ect... on my second monitor (the TV), I'd like the game's sound to come from my computer headphones and the video sound to come from my TV. To this point I haven't found a way to make that happen. All that I know to do is go to control panel and set the default sound device to either my TV or my speakers. There's no option to split the sound between the two. So right now if I'm doing separate tasks on two different monitors, all of the sound is either from my speakers or from the TV. I know most dual monitors set ups are run with two actual monitors side by side so this isn't an issue, because of this I can't imagine this is a common issue. plus i know that some games give me the option to do just that but most do not.

So my goal is to have the sound from any task running on my monitor to come out of my headphones. At the same time, any task that is running off of my TV should have its sound running through my TV. Any ideas?
 

Answer:How can I separate my tv speaker and headphones sound?

I have a Packard bell laptop with a headphone and microphone plugin on the left. For a while now, when I plug in my headphones, sound still comes out of the speaker.

Answer:Sound still comes out of speaker when headphones are plugged in

Check to see if you have a RealTek "HD Audio Manager" panel (mine is located in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound). There is an option, in most, to have the speakers mute or not mute when a headset is plugged in.

Hi I bought a E470 Thinkpad with windows 10 ~2 months ago. The computer has been sitting idle for the last month (in sleep mode) and when I started it today I have an issue where the internal speakers wont output any sound. However connecting headphones or other external devices lets me outout audio (through said device). I've looked through various topics online (non-lenoveo related). The most common issues people have are the following:-Speakers are disabled / not selected as default device  *Pretty confedent this isn't my problem as everythin seems fine in the audio properties/settings-The driver is broken and needs reinstallation / replacement  *I have reinstalled the driver "Conexant Smartaudio HD", same problem after restart  *I have replaced the driver with the "High Definition Audio Device", same problem after restart-There's a sensor in the mini-jack socket whats faulty leading the computer to believe headphones are connected  *I don't know the correct way to go about diagnosing this, but several users on another forum fixed the issue (on different computers) by "poking around" with a toothpick in the audio jack.  Other observations / useful info:The computer does not appear to "know" that there is an issue with the audio. The internal speakers are not disabled, in able to adjust the volume bar. When I connect an external speaker / headphones a dialog box appears where I can chose between Headphones, Headset and Speaker. For th... Read more

A couple of days ago, I decided to move my tower from my desk to the floor. Everything was working beautifully up until then. I opened it up and removed some dust. After putting it back together, the monitor wouldn't register anything. I left it for a day, came back, and the monitor magically worked again. The wifi card stopped working, but importantly, the sound was working. After leaving it for a night, I came back, reseated the wifi card, and magically, the card worked again. But now, the sound won't work! It's been several days, and this is the situation:

* The sound is not muted. When I press the speaker icon in the tray, the green volume bar moves up and down, as though sound is playing

* If I troubleshoot the 'playing audio', it says that no peripherals are plugged in. I found that if I went into Realtek HD Audio Manager and disabled 'front panel jack detection' in the connection settings, the computer suddenly apparently realises that I do have speakers connected, and when I troubleshoot audio again, it doesn't find any errors. I have to do this every time I restart, but the sound still doesn't work.

* I've downloaded and reinstalled the Realtek HD Codecs twice.

* In Device Manager, it recognises the integrated sound card:


(the PCI Simple Communications Controller device is Intel Management Engine Interface)
* I've disabled and enabled the devices many times, but no dice.

* I've reinstalled the chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer

* I've gon... Read more

Answer:No sound from speaker/headphones, can't find any errors.

I see you have both High Definition Audio Device and RealTek listed in the Sound Video and Game Controllers. In most cases the High Definition Audio Device is a Windows installed generic sound driver. Since you have RealTek, you do not need this and it can conflict. Uninstall the HD Audio Device (in the Device Manager), restart the PC and see what happens.

Also, double check the motherboard connection for the front panel audio. Although you have "unplugged and re-plugged" wires, check it again. The other possibility with the front panel. Try disconnecting the front panel headset/mic connection at the motherboard and see what happens (not disable it in the RealTek HD Manager).

Hi,I  bought an IDEAPAD Z510 on July 19th 2014. I have the same problem. No sound from internal speakers - only from headphones . This has happened after disconnecting headphones. I read a forum post which suggested that the problem could be due to malfunction of the internal mechanism of the headphone socket . The internal mechanism of socket often does not come back to original position after the headphone is removed to restore speaker function. I suspect that is the problem. Request Lenovo to help rectify this manufacturing fault.

Answer:No sound from internal speakers - only from headphones

It could be the problem which you mentioned in your post. However, have you checked what is the default playback device selected in your Sound control?To do this, 1) Right click on the volume icon in the Taskbar on the bottom right side of the screen.2) Click on Playback devices.3) Make sure when the headphones are unplugged, the internal speakers are selected as the default device. Have you connected to laptop to an external display?Any other modifications, if you have done?

CTO HP Pavilion dv8000 (with Media Center) XP
For some time, I've had sound from headphone jack but not from internal speakers, though when I take out the headphones, for half a second, the music continues through the speaker. HP help told me to reinstall the operating system (XP) which I was not willing to do, as I wasn't sure they knew what they were talking about (again--I've had ill experience here). So when I saw some issues here that sounded similar to mine (turn off digital output--SPDIF), I contacted them again. They determined (likely from some far away place--the grammar and spelling weren't very good, though they were very polite) that it is a hardware issue. I am loathe to send this thing away into the black hole of HP repair. The posts I read here usually had to do with VISTA, but I have XP and couldn't figure out how to do the same thing in XP (SPDIF). Any help would be great. Without some software fix, I'm liable to limp along using headphones and external speaker systems.

hi raulalva,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try righclicking on the speaker icon  (lower right of the screen)
    and select Volume mixer,
     Make sure nothing is disabled or muted.
   
 
If that did not work,
try Uninstalling the driver again from Device Manager "make sure to place a check under delete driver software for this device"
Then Restart the system
 
After Restart download and install this driver
 Conexant Audio Driver 
 
Restart the system again and see if that worked.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

I'm having troubles with the sound in my laptop since a few months. At first I thought it would go away with updating drivers, making some system restore solutions or changing to high definition audio device drivers from Win 7 yet I cannot find the solution to this problem and today is getting worse. Right now I cannot get any kind of sound from the right side whether headphones or external speakers. Also my sound goes away after 15-30 seconds of being active from the laptop speakers. I checked the forums and blogs about this problem, but still not finding a good solution to me.

*Satellite L750-1VW*
*Code : PSK1WE-0U500ECE*

I checked on other systems the headphones and the external speakers. So my guess is the jack has the problem or I don't know. Yesterday I remember getting a windows update download and then from there my sound started to have the static on right side of the speakers and headphones.

*First problem*: No sound after 15-30 secs of being active while watching videos (vlc, wma, youtube, etc)
*Second problem* (recent): static, crackling noise, from right side of external speakers or headphones

Any solution to this?

I bought this laptop last year around May or April, cannot remember the exact month. Thank you.

Sorry my bad english.

Answer:Satellite L750 - No sound on right speaker or headphones - Static

In my opinion your options are very limited and all you have done until now is right. You can check software settings, test it with ?factory settings or use preinstalled PC diagnostic tool.
Have you used this tool? There will be checked wave sound on both speakers. If not do it.

Anyway, I don't want to speculate but somehow I think there is hardware problem and I think you should contact nearest authorized Toshiba service provider and ask for help. They use special software for hardware test and can say for sure what the problem is.
Is warranty still valid?

Answer:internal speaker dont have a sound

the case speaker doesnt rely on your sound card, all it provides is basically beeps and such. For sound from your sund card you need external speakers connected to the sound card sockets.

I have this old computer which I dont use anymore, but there is something about it that left me quite confused

It has a sound card, but the external spreakers produce no sound. Instead, the internal speaker produces all the sounds (which gives terrible quality because the case is closed, and its a crappy speaker anyways). I never changed any of the computers settings, but one day it was like that and never changed back.

Any explanations (I dont use the computer and prolly wont (it doesnt even have an OS installed (ready for trash))?

Just want to figure this one out. Its an old compaq p-i with < 128 RAM (I think its like 32MB)

sound on external speaker.

Please help

Answer:No internal or external speaker sound

first go to control panel and check the audio option of your computer and see if the computer recognizes a sound card.

after clicking audio go ahead and check the settings. if everything is grayed out it means you don't have sound card installed, you need to check device manager and see if you have your sound card there and if see if it's installed with the correct driver.

check also if the external speakers are connected to the right audio port at the back of pc.

hope this helps!

A couple of days ago I pulled a jack plug from the head phone input and I believe it broke the mechanism that detects whether a jack plug is inserted. The result is that I can't get sound from the laptop speakers when there is no jack plug in the head phone input. The sound works perfectly fine though headphones, drivers have been updated, and the problem also occurs when I run a fresh install of Ubuntu, so I think it's safe to say that it's not a software issue, but a hardware issue. However, a different hardware issue than the broken jack detection mechanism is also a probable cause.  Lenovo suggests to fix hardware issues like this through inspecting the hardware or sending it out f.... However, I don't feel like hardware editing (yet) nor sending my laptop away for weeks for repair. Given that it is indeed the broken jack plug detection mechanism, I was hoping to find a solution through some adjustments in software.

Hi, I've been searching google thin and tried numerous fixes and nothing so far has worked. I just bought an used Lenovo ideapad u410 and a week later the internal speakers suddenly stopped working. External/headphones still work flawlessly, but the internal speakers won't make a sound. So far I've tried these things:Updating drivers manually.Deleting drivers and let windows update them itself.Deleting drivers and installing the default windows drivers.Checking the internal speakers is set as standard, not muted and that the jackstick isn't stuck or jammed.Restoring the computer to factory settings.Restart audio services.I probably tried some other stuff too that I forgot. When I got the computer there was windows 10 installed, so I tried to do a clean install of windows 8.1. This made the sound come back for a few days, then it disappeared again like with windows 10. I then tried upgrading back to windows 10, didn't work. Rolled back to 8.1, didn't work. I'm considering doing a clean install of windows 7 at this point, because I'm desperate.At the momemt I got 8.1 installed and I have tried installing and deleting the drivers numerous times, with no success.Anyone got any ideas as to what I can do next besides doing a clean install of windows 7?

Answer:Lenovo u410 no sound from internal speaker

If you right click on the speaker icon in the tray and select playback devices, do your internal speakers show up there with a Green check mark, and if not, if you right click in the Playback window and select Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices. do your internal speakers show as disabled?    If so, right click on them and select enable and then set them as the default.     Also try disabling the other playback devices (unplug them too) to see if that helps. It sounds like yoiu may have already checked that, and it is not the issue, espeically since it sounds like (no pun intented) ,that you have restored the system, but it never hurts to check.  Drivers and software aside, most sound card jacks mechanically mute the internal speakers when an external jack is pugged in, so perhaps the jack itself is broken and is not switching back to the internal speakers when the headphones are unplugged.   .

Hi there

How can I play through both my internal laptop speaker and through this external speaker at the same time.

Your help would be much appreciated!

Answer:Play sound through internal speakers and headphones simultaneously

For most systems dual sound is impossible. Actually I'm not sure if that is possible at all on any card at all...I've browsed around the internetz, and this is what everyone seems to say on this subject.
My advice would be if you are using your laptop for home use only, just go buy external speakers as well, as long as you have 2 sound ports. If not you can get a splitterand plug both the bass and speakers in that.

Answer:ThinkPad T430s No Sound Through Headphones or Internal Speakers

You have an unknown device there.  Investigate that.  It might be the audio that Windows shows is currently disabled.  Also, if it worked before, restore the PC to a point prior to the driver install--I'm assuming that this was a recent event, downloading the Realtek driver.  You could also try "Roll Back" for the driver, if it's not greyed out.  Or you could uninstall the audio device and let Windows find it again and install a driver from its cache.  But my money is on the unknown device.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.Latitude D620Default device: SigmaTel AudioSigma Tel version 5.10.0.4823Thanks

Answer:No sound from Latitude D620 notebook speaker but headphones work fine.

It could be either. On the software side of things, you could reinstall the audio driver or use PC Restore to return her computer to the exact configuration it was in when she received it. Everything that was working then would work again except any hardware problems that have developed since it was shipped (or any it had when shipped for that matter).Or it could be the headphone jack. The Dell laptops with a Sigmatel 92xx audio chip utilize Universal Jacks technology, which is somewhat complicated. In addition to the usual mechanical parts, the jack also uses current & impedance-sensing techniques to trigger software configuration and switching (to send the audio signal to the speakers). So there are three areas of potential failure: mechanical, electronic, and software. Sometimes, a little very gentle wiggle of a plug in the jack will get it to resume normal functioning, at least temporarily. Normally I'd say to run the audio test part of Dell Diagnostics to confirm that there is a hardware problem, but we have seen that these Universal Jacks can cause a false result in Diagnostics. That is because Diagnostics operates in DOS, outside of Windows, so a Windows software misconfiguration is irrelevant to the test even though in this case it is caused by hardware. So the audio test can pass in Diagnostics, correctly signaling that software configuration is the immediate cause of the problem, but missing that a hardware problem, the bad jack, is the root cause. In these inst... Read more

Hi community,let me first explain how I assume the switch between headphones and speakers should work:I turn on music or anything esle and if no headphones are plugged in, every sound comes from the internal speakers. Now if I plug in headphones then the sound comes exclusively from the headphones. If I pull then out again the sound comes from the speakers and so on. In my case the situation is the following:If I have no headphones plugged in and turn on music, then I hear if via speakers. If I decide to continue listening to that music via headphones and plug them in, then the music continues to come from the speakers, but for example the notification sound from outlook comes from the headphones. This works vice versa.If I open, say youtube to watch a video, while having the headphones plugged in, I will hear the sound via them. If I now unplugg them, the speakers will stay silent.What can I do that if there are no external speakers plugged in (headphones etc.) every sound will be played by the internal speakers, if I plug in some sort of external speaker it comes from them and if I unplugg it it switches back to the internal speakers?Thank you very much for your help!Best regards

Making it difficult to pinpoint what caused this/finding a solution... :(

So after opening my laptop from sleep or hibernate, I can't remember which specifically and want to listen to some music, I notice there is none.

I plug in my earphones, and there is sound. Both times the sound mixer is indicating sound.
The speakers are the default device, green tick, and sound levels are picked up. "This device is working properly.".

I actually let windows automatically find a newer driver version, which it surprisingly did, downloaded and installed - restart laptop. Still no sound.

I read somewhere that it appears for some that the hibernation and or sleep mode on Toshiba laptops cause the audio drivers to behave strangely. But I don't now what kind of troubleshooting to do, to fix this.

Or it could be hardware related, regarding the port/jack. I don't know. I pray its software.

Answer:Qosmio X870 - Internal speaker don't work but headphones do.

Hi

>Or it could be hardware related, regarding the port/jack. I don't know. I pray its software.

I don?t think it?s hardware related issue.
As I understood the issue: the speakers work properly if the notebook runs in normal mode.
The speakers don?t work if the unit wake up from hibernation or sleep mode.

I meet such issue on my 2nd notebook. The speakers did not work but sound appeared using connected headphones. I could solve this by sound driver update.

But I think this isn?t a universal solution.
From my point of few you should try different workarounds.

First of the notebook should be tested and checked using the Toshiba preinstalled system.
The image has been configured and tested by Toshiba and usually everything should work properly. Therefore i would recommend you to use the Recovery disk (or HDD recovery procedure) in order to set the notebook back to the factory settings.

The other workaround would be the uninstallation of the sound driver as well as other sound driver related parts.
In device manager go to the sound, video and game controller
Here uninstall/delete the
- Realtek sound driver
- nVidia High Definition Audio (if available)
- Intel high definition audio controller (if available)

After this short procedure reboot the notebook.
Now you will need to wait until the deleted devices were recognized and installed again.
After this process has been finished, check the sound availability.

High Definition Audio Drivers are only the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound drivers. They are not the full feature drivers that the hardware drivers provide. Check HP for a correct sound driver, if available.

ATPI (ATAPI) suggests this is an old Windows XP PC that was upgraded. There may not be any better drivers than the generic ones you have now.

Also check the front panel audio connection to the motherboard (reseat the connector).

My speakers are working properly, just after each Windows sound for example when you click on a link, the sound is played but after is the speaker makes sound similar to big speakers when you switch them off. I know it's a small thing but it really bothers and I have to have them switched off while not listening to music or on Skype. thanks

I have an MSI 785GTM-E45 Mother Board. I have no sound coming from the speakers. Tried new speakers and still no sound. If I click on the speaker Icon on the bottom right it shows the speaker graph going up and down as sound is being produced. I tried the head phones and nothing coming from them either. I tried playing a CD and nothing from there either. I first noticed it when I was trying to play something from YOUTUBE and thought it might just be the site but then I tried off line as well. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. This is the first day that I have noticed it. Thanks for any help. I have checked all the settings I can think of but probably have missed something somewhere.

Answer:No sound from speakers but showing sound graph on speaker control

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section, set your "Speakers" as the Default Playback device (if it's not now set). Then see if you have speaker and/or headphone sound.

My Y50 had the left speaker clicking sound and muffled sound from day one (last month) March 2015After much time and pain I worked out the problem was the cooling fins next to the cooling fans were flexing and I presume touching the left speaker wire which runs along under neath the cooling fins. I could get the clicking sound to happen every time if I applied a small amount of pressure on the cooling tubes that sit on top of the cooling fins.I then placed a small piece of cardboard on the left side under the cooling fins to raise them only about 2 mm and this has fixed the problem. no more damm clicking sound and muffled sound Hey Lenovo fix you effin Y50 laptop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking for sound effect program.I had program 10 years or so , I think it was sound blaster live ( not sure) had some thing similar .Want I wont is program that will add sound effect to sound coming through my computer speakers or headphone. The different sound effects that make your voice sound deep ,less muffled voice, tunnel ,echo ,slow talking ,sound like you talking in small room ,car or out side.

I wont it for both music/sound/audio streaming from the internet and music/sound from the computer , I have on the computer.And be able to go in setting and turn it or off or add or remove effects.

I'm not sure but I think it was sound blaster live I had ,that had some thing similar to add effect to sound coming through the computer speaker or headphone.

Note I have windows 7 .So some thing that works with windows 7.
 

Answer:I'm looking for sound effect program , sound coming through the computer speaker

Creative (ie: Sound Blaster) has had that type of setting in their software for years. The Creative/Sound Blaster software is for their chipsets only. There could be a similar audio tool that works with any audio source, but I'm not familiar with any.

Hello, first post, first Lenovo.I am a teacher.  A Lenovo A57 9702 was donated to our school and I got it.  It has a Vista basic sticker on it, but has been upgraded to Vista Business.  I think it?s a brand new machine.  My problem is that the only sound I get is from the onboard speaker.  The front and back sound jacks are not outputting sound.  Plugging in speakers or headphones won?t even cut out the onboard speaker sound; it?s like they are not even connected. If you have a clue, thank you!

Answer:A57 sound from onboard speaker only; integrated sound jacks do not work.

I installed the A57 audio drivers.  Afterward it said that they may not have installed correctly.  It still does not work. Thank you.

Yesterday my audio worked fine on both my speakers on my laptop (Dell Inspiron/N5110) and headphones. Then all of a sudden they stopped working. I have made sure that all the volumes are not muted. I did a troubleshoot on playing audio and it said low audio device volume detected, but when I increase the volume, nothing happens. Any one have any suggestions?

Hello,
Recently, when I was using my Windows 10 desktop PC, I noticed that I had no sound for all programs and speakers/headphones I tried. Normally when I have no sound, it is exclusive to one program. I tried to fix the problem by reinstalling my Realtek audio drivers, but to no avail. Perhaps my sound card is broken or I am just doing something wrong?

Answer:Sound not working for all headphones... sound card broken?

To be sure, they're not muted, correct? Sometimes it's the most simple solution.
If they're not muted and the volume is turned up, then it's possible your sound card failed.

You could try booting into safe mode to see if some type of software is causing it.

Answer:No sound from Laptop speakers, but can hear sound out headphones

The following may work but it applies to Windows Vista (I don't have XP any more), so it may be a little different for yours:

Control Panel > Sound > Speakers > Properties > Advanced > Restore Defaults

Why would speakers sound scratchy, but headphones and external cabled speakers sound OK? I have a Dell Studio 15 (1555) running windows 7 Professional.

236GB used, 214GB free space
Intel P8700 2.53 GHz Processor
64 bit OS
4GB memory

The built-in speakers used to sound good but now they are too scratchy to understand. However the headset sound is good. According to the Dell Support Assist utility, the sound card is "ATI high Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC."
Microphone test -- earphone playback is OK, on-board speaker terrible.

Answer:Why would on-board speakers sound scratchy but headphones sound OK?

You Dell Studio 1555 laptop uses IDT HD audio driver for the built in laptop speakers.
The ATI HD audio driver is only used if an HDMI connection to an HDMI monitor (with an HDMI audio/video cable) is used.

possibly a driver conflict with IDT audio, built-in speakers may be malfunctioning or dirty (gotta have them repaired if it's a hardware problem and not a software problem). just listing the possible causes for the scratchy sound.

Hello,
I just bought the Y50 yesterday with the GTX 960M. Unfortunatly i noticed while playing that the left speaker started to do a clicking noise, in addition the sound became muffled. When i tilt the laptop the problem is resolved i.e. the clicing stops and the sound returns to normal. After a few minutes the same problem returns until i tilt the laptop or lift it again.
Please help.

I have a Lenovo S10-3 Netbook, running on Win7 starter.

It has been running fine unil a few days ago, when the built in speakers no longer play any sound. Works fine with earphones or exernal speakers, but not internal speakers.

Drivers are all up to date, and audio/sound settings are all set to full.

And according to the speaker and sound card 'properties' - "This device is working properly."

What can i do?

Answer:No sound from built in speakers, but sound from headphones

Do you get sound with the external speakers unplugged?? Usually laptops will disable the built in speakers while external speakers are being used...

Hello  I have been using my hp for over a year with little or no problems and this only happened 3 days ago. I came home from college and I booted up the laptop and there was no sound what so ever so I plugged in my headhones and the sound was distorted. So I thought It must be a Driver Issue so I updated the drivers and It fixed it or so I thought. The next day I came home and had the same problem but when I had the headphones in I could hear that the sound was going from distorted to normal rapidly so I just jiggled the headphone jack and It was fixed. Now today I came home as usual and same thing happens so I tried the jiggle trick from yesterday and nope it didnt work. But after a few mins It ficed itself  Now I havent got a clue whats causing this and Im getting frustrated. Can I do anything to resolve this   Does It matter that I have my headphones plugged on all the time or could it be the head phone jack that is causing issues

It was working and then I hit something in the realtek HD audio manager by accident and it stopped working, I can't figure out how to fix it.

Answer:Can't hear sound through headphones, but it says sound is playing?

Not knowing what you did, all we can do is guess and try to help you.

Not sure if System Restore (back to an available restore date that is before whatever you did) will help or not, but one option to try.

Uninstalling/reinstalling the RealTek will probably do it. Actually just installing the latest RealTek will first uninstall the existing, have you restart the PC (Important step do not bypass this) and then will do a new install.

Download the latest High Defintion Codec from RealTek. Realtek
