Hi Satellite users,

I recently had a problem getting my Toshiba Satellite P50t-B running Windows 10 to detect (and hence connect) to my Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Headphones. The symptom of the problem was that the "MDR-XB50BS" device didn't appear in the list of available devices on the Windows Activity Centre "Connect" screen, nor in the Windows Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth and other devices -> Add a device screen. Since the device never appeared, I couldn't connect to it.

The solution to the problem turned out to be upgrading my Toshiba Satellite BIOS from version 1.10 to BIOS version 1:50 available on the Drivers & Updates tab of the Toshiba Satellite Support site. The release notes mention a Bluetooth issue being corrected in version 1.40 and while I can't say for certain that this is the same issue I encountered, updating the BIOS was the last thing that I tried before the problem went away, and it's reasonable to expect that a relatively new technology like Bluetooth might have had early implementation bugs.

The other point to note is that if you've already paired the headphones with another device, like I had with my iPhone, then you have to hold the power button down for 7 seconds at power on in order to enter Bluetooth pairing mode first time you try to connect it to the Satellite.

I hope this helps someone someday!

Cheers,
Graham

Hi, I am having problems getting a Bluetooth headset to operate. Having connected and paired (I believe), the device shows in Devices and Printers. In Device Manager, there are three listings for it (Aukey model EP-B4). Each listing says there are no drivers installed. Have tried updating each and all but after an age for Windows searching for drivers I had to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to close it.
I have contacted the manufacturer many times but so far no results - they repeatedly requested from where I bought it and item number.
I am using Win7 SP1 with all updates current.
 
The headset works well with my mobile phone and tablet (Android 5.1).
 
Any help much apprecitated.

I know I sound really dumb. But I have been listening to music on my PC for a couple of years and the speakers work, but I never tried headphones. Today I did .....and no sound is coming out..

I am using Windows Vista on an unmodified 4-year-old Dell.

The headphone connection is a simple jackplug socket, but it doesn't even give a "crackle" in my headphones when I connect it.

The sound software is Realtek HD Audio Manager. But I can find nothing in this that "enables" headphones.

There is nothing in Device Manager about headphones that I recognise.

What do I need to do to enable my headphone jackplug audio connection please?

Thanx Jonde
 

Answer:How do I enable headphone audio through a jackplug connection?

If you are using the front headphone jack, try the one in the back. Sometimes the one in the front is not wired properly.
Also, try the headphones elsewhere to be sure the headphones work.

Headphones are plug and play. When the jack is inserted, the sound comes out of the headphones instead of the speakers.

I've recently bought a Bluetooth USB Dongle for my Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop so my wireless headphone could connect to it. The dongle connected and installed fine but when I pressed "Add a device", it saw it as a keyboard and when it tried to install the driver for it, it gave me a "No driver found" for Bluetooth Peripheral Device. It is a Ciberspeed Sports Bluetooth Headphone and it has worked for my iPod so I'm not sure if that's the issue. I appreciate any help.

Hi.I've been lurking for a bit and have had most of my questions answered and issues solved bythis fine community. Thank you!My problem is that I can add my bt headphones (I've tried two different sets) in the "add device"option, but once I shut the bt device (headphones in my case) off and then turn them back onagain the sound continues to come from the tablet or stereo speakers (which ever I'm using atthe time) and the sound won't switch to the bt headphones automatically. I must manually go theSound settings in Control Panel options and select the bt headphone to use them again. As ofright now I've got a shortcut to the Sound options on my desktop. Now this isn't a deal breaker forme, but there's got to be an easier way!

Answer:Both Speakers and Headphone play sound when headphone is plugged into Jack

Dear AlvinLee
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Method A:
1.  Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2.  Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
3.  Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
 
 
 
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself
 
Thanks

Answer:Tecra A8 No Sound on internal speakers & headphone but USB headphone works

Did you downgrade to XP or upgrade to Vista? Mute can get stuck if an OS has been changed.

Go into the Windows Volume Control, then click MUTE. Click MUTE again to unmute.

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

I have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

Answer:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

Hello Eight Forums.

My trouble is the audio output through headphones - background is louder than foreground (especially in music - I often cannot hear the vocals at all; movies however are mostly fine, for reasons unknown to me; but generally, the sound is always different in some way).

I only have one pair of headphones to test it with. However these always worked fine with previous machines, and still do work fine with my iPhone 4. Although they are surely not the case, I cannot with confidence say that if it were a loudspeaker instead things wouldn't have been different.

So this is either a software or a hardware issue.

Software

My computer (details at the bottom) came with a SoundBlaster X-Fi MB3 equalizer program and RealTek High Def Audio drivers. I've uninstalled SoundBlaster hoping it would fix the issue (I didn't need an extra program like that anyway) but alas to no avail. Updating the RealTek drivers did no good still.

The only thing I haven't touched is the ghostly NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (can it be the source of my trouble?) - I only first noticed it now when copy/pasting the Belarc data. I'll try and find out about it in the meanwhile.

Hardware

I wonder if it perhaps has something to do with my audio jack (laptop's brand new, but you can never know). I have what appears to be mic, headphone, S/PDIF and line in jacks... Is there a way to use the microphone or the line-in to test the headphones? To see if the headphone out is broken.

Any help appreci... Read more

Answer:Messed up headphone audio; want to check headphone jack

First, the "My System Specs" is where you fill in what you have.

Does the internal speakers on the laptop work? Is the audio OK on the internal speakers?

The SoundBlaster program(s) is a software enhancement to the basic audio chip (ReaklTek). Many PC's now come with some type of enhancement such as the SoundBlaster or in the case of HP PC's its "Beats Audio".

Answer:Laptop with combined mic/headphone jack, how to connect both mic & headphone ?

I haven't used one that had the port as a combined unit but I would assume you would need a headphone set with mic that has combined wiring, such as sets used for cell phones and such. You can also purchase an adapter that will split the port into 2 ports for mic and headphones.
Hope that gives you an idea

Hey everybody,

I bought the headsets. They've got a microphone as well.

Now I've got three ports: pink, green and this colorless one.

My regular speakers go in the colorless port, while the headphone microphone goes into the pink one and the headset speakers.

The thing is speakers on the headsets, as well as my regular speakers worked, but the microphone on the headsets didn't, so I tried to fix the problem, and eventually did, that is the microphone works, but the speakers on the headsets don't !

However, by inserting the headphone's speakers into the colorless port (where my regular speakers are put), in that case the headphones work, but why don't they work when I pluck them in the green port? Previously, when the microphone didn't work, the headphone's speakers worked, but after I 'fixed' the microphone problem, the headphone's speakers stopped working.

Please help me, as this is of great importance, and I've been trying to fix this problem for several hours.
 

Answer:Headphone mic didn't work - now it does, but headphone speakers don't

That colorless port might be for input devices, that does not include headphones. I had the same problem with my audigy 2 zs, had to plug my headset into a speaker port, its really the only way to get them to work, unless you have front panel ports for headphones.

If you purchased complete care from Dell you can call into Dell Alienware Support at 1 (877) 330-9732. If you did not you can possibly take it back to the store you purchased it from to see if they can help you. You can also try removing it yourself. Just make sure that it is unplugged before attempting to remove it.

Hello Asmodeus,

There are couple of things that can be tried to isolate the issue further. Please try the following steps:

1. Try a good known headphones to the computer and check if that works. In case you do not have an extra headphones, try the same one on a different device. For example, different computer, cell phone or iPod. It would prove the functionality of the headphones.

2. In case you have an extra headphone jack on the system, try connecting to the other port and check the functionality.

Please try the steps an write back with results, would be glad to assist further.

hello,

not sure if it helps but here is what happened. yesterday i was playing DDO on my laptop sound was playing just fine through my headphones. then unplugged them watched a movie and went to bed. the next day i went to play on my laptop, plugged the headphones in and now there is no sound. so pulled up youtube (my sound troubleshooter) and watched a random video where i know there is sound. i unplugged the headphones and the regular speakers work. plugged them back in, the regular speakers go off like they should but nothing comes out of the headphones. i have tried 2 sets of headphones and also used them on my ipod just to make sure they are not faulty(they work) also when i bring up playback devices only the regular speakers are listed weather or not i have the headphones in or out. my driver does not require an update, i have checked that. i have also reinstalled the driver.i have even searched this site and other forums for answers, one told me to do a system restore so i tried that and nothing.

so it seems like it only partially detects that i have my headphones plugged in.

Headphones broke off while plugged into my Laptop resulting in the little metal peice being stuck in the laptop, there is no way to pull it out with plyers.

Is there a way to play sound out of the speakers and headphones so I can still listen to sound?
Or a way to manually change the audio to run out of speakers instead while the metal peice is in the headphone slot.
 

Answer:Headphone problem

If you are really careful, you can pull the rest of the broken phone plug out of the laptop's audio jack. If you damage the laptops jack, you might trash the motherboard. With the plug in the jack, the internal speakers are usually disconnected

Do you have your front panel jacks plugged in and working? If so then you should use the green audio out plug. If not. on my sound card blue is for audio in. and I know you stated that it worked in XP but that doesn't mean it will work on 7.

Question: Headphone problem

So I have desktop speakers, though i cannot always use them when other people are in the room. So I decided that i would just plug headphones in and use them when other people are in the room. I went to COMPUSA to ask them exactly how i would set it up so i could have headphones as well as speakers plugged into my computer. They suggested that a splitter would do the trick. So i buy the splitter, and it doesnt solve my problem. I still get sound out of my speakers, but only get quiet fuzz out of the headphones. What am I doing wrong? Am i missing some important step? Any help would be appreciated. I am not incredibly computer savvy, though i do know more than most and can follow directions well. Please help me.
 

Answer:Headphone problem

Welcome to TechSpot Forums

The easiest thing would be plugging your headphones to speakers' headphone jack, if they have one. If not, you'll probably have to unplug the speakers and plug headphones to your soundcard instead. A normal splitter doesn't cut out speakers, and different impedance between speakers and headphones causes the volume difference. You'd need a switch instead of a splitter.

Dear TechSupportGuy Forum,

I recently bought myself a new pair of headphones, a Turtle Beach Z6A... anyways here is my problem:

Every time I turn off my computer or restart my computer my Turtle Beach Z6A microphone does not work. I have to manually disconnect the microphone from my computer and then replug it back in. Afterwards everything works perfectly fine again. Is there a reason for this happening? It is not a huge issue, just quite annoying seeing as I turn off my computer every night.

Computer specs:

OS: Windows 7 64 Bit
Motherboard: ASUS P6T
CPU: Intel Core i7 940
RAM: 12GB
Display NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470
Soundcard: None (Built in motherboard soundcard..)

Thanks in advance

Question: headphone problem!

hi I recently reformatted my PC and have reinstalled all necessary drivers and went well except that when I was trying out my headphones no sound is coming out but if you pullout the headphones the sounds is ok.. I went to the control panel to check the settings of the headphones and it says its working properly when I plug it in again and press the "testing" option sounds is coming out of the headphones but during movies or mp3s it wnt work..please help

thanks!

Answer:headphone problem!

There are a few possibilities regarding your issue . First, is the analog sound cable connected to your sound card or motherboard (if your sound chip is on board)? This is usually the problem, so you will need to go into your PC case and connect it. Secondly, do you currently have installed an application your headphone plug or it's cable, or the female connector may be damaged.

Question: Headphone Problem

Hey guys I just got these headphones and their fine and all except for two things. The mic on it just completely sucks, its terrible. The way the mic works is its just a plastic mic with a audio jack on the back and you just plug it in directly to the headphones. So if anyone could show me a separate mic that is the same thing but with better audio quality that would be awesome. Or will this not even fix my audio quality? Secondly they hurt your ears after hours of gaming....so do you guys think 5.1 headphones are a gimmick and I should just take these back and get a good pair gaming stereo headphones? Let me know thanks.

Answer:Headphone Problem

Haven't really tried 5.1's,but I know what you mean about them hurting your ears.
You might want to try some in ear headphones like they use for mp3 players.
Mic quality may have to do with your sampling rate.
Check your sound card software to see if you can adjust it.

Hello,

I've got a problem with my new Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones inasmuch as when I plug the jack into either the front or rear phone slot on my PC, no sound comes from them when I play a video or some music.

They work - I've tried them with my Kindle and also 'tested' them through the Realtek control panel but whatever I do, I cannot get sound from them for video/music files.

The sound system at the moment is connected to the optical socket at the rear of the computer. There is nothing connected to the analog socket. In the Realtek HD Audio Manager window under Speaker Configuration the 6 Analog buttons on the RHS of the window are greyed out. The Front Panel green and pink buttons are active. The strange thing is that if I press the Auto Test blue button on the right of the Speaker Configuration box, the test works through the headphones and thatís the only time it works when plugged into the PC. If I remove the headphones and do the same test for the speakers, the test doesnít work, yet the speakers operate perfectly using my normal viewing/listening setup.

My computer details are: AMD Phenom 6 core 1055T, Windows 7, Gigabyte GA870A-UD3 mobo, Realtek HD Audio Manager, Logitech Z5500 sound system.

Iím sure itís just a question of a tick in the box, but which box do I tick?

Answer:Headphone And Microphone Problem

Hi too_sly.
Look in your audio mixer properties.
The only thing you want set to "recorder" is "microphone" while playing the game.
Also might want to make sure your speaker configuration is set to headphones only.
The settings will vary depending on your audio\sound card configuration so that's about as specific as I can get at the moment.

Sorry, this is not a definitive solution. Just something you can try.Create another user on your computer, with same privileged level.  But do not install or use Skype on that user. Reboot your PC and log into the new user. Try your favorite game. You may have to import some settings from the original user, or just start with new settings for the game just to see what happens.Now then, use then fast user switch thing to just go over to you normal user. Bring up Skype, use it, then close. After that, switch back top the new user and start your game again. What happens? You might find the problem is attached to user settings. Skype modified user settings and failed to restore them.Tell me I mad a bad guess.

I just bought a new X230 and when attempting to use headphones on the combojack I am only getting audio in the left ear.  If I pull the jack out a little, I can get audio in both ears but it is not stereo.  Furthermore, it appears as though the combojack is tilted in relationship to the body of the laptop.   Am I missting something in terms of software in order to enable stereo on the combojack?  Or, does this seem more like a hardware problem?    













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:X230 Headphone Problem

Solved the problem...   So seeing the jack was tilted in the body I assumed the combojack was not soldered to the board properly.  I hate sending things in for warranty so I took the motherboard out and sure enough, the last two pins were not soldered to the board.  I applied heat with a small tip soldering iron to all the pins quickly so that the jack slowly leveled out on the board.  Put it back together and it works.

Plugging in headphones does not switch to headphones.
If I wish to switch from speaker to headphone, the only way is to go into playback devices and select one or the other as default. I can't default both. Checking one as default (speaker) and the other as communication device also doesn't help.
I notice that many others on the forums have a single choice, that is, speaker/headphones. Mine are separate. Also, I have VIA HD Audio(Win 10).

First thought would be the jack socket, but if I go into playback devices, and select headphones, and run the test, they work perfectly. If I reboot my pc, with the headphones plugged in, they work, but I can't get the speakers to. Again, running a test, shows them to work.

Those little 3.5 mm stereo input jacks are iffy. One good pull/leverage and the wires inside come shaky. I've got the same with a big headphone set for my stereo (6.3 mm). Plug in all the way and I only get the right channel, plug in not far enough and I get a buzz, somewhere half way they work.

Hello All, my sound output on my laptop (the headphone jack...) is broken, almost certainly a hardware fault, I've tried pretty much everything I know of within windows to no avail. It's only outputting to the right.

So, is there any way to configure windows so that it recognises my line-in or microphone (pink and blue ;D) jacks as a headphone jack?

Answer:Headphone Jack Problem - Help!

Hi psychfunk,

Sound cards are unfortunately not wired that way :/ Inputs and outputs are not interchangeable. You'll need to either buy a USB external sound card, or get your laptop fixed.

Unless of course, it's not a hardware issue - are you experiencing the right-channel-only issue with multiple pairs of headphones, different speaker sets, etc?

Hi,

About a week or so ago my headphone jack started to act up. I thought it was my headphones that were acting up so I got a new pair (I made the mistake of not checking them on another computer but at least the old and new phones were cheap. ) which also do the same thing. Moving around the headphone's jack causes the computer to start using its speakers again sometimes. When it doesn't do that, sound only comes out of one side of the headphones.

I checked the playback device's properties and both sides are set to the same level. I don't recall updating any drivers recently either. I was hoping to get people's opinion here on whether or not you also think it's an issue with the headphone port (and how I might go about replacing it.)

Thanks!

Answer:Possible problem with my headphone port

There are mechanical connections in a headphone jack and some even have an extra contact either for sensing or to route the sound to the headphones only.

Most (all that I've seen) PC circuit boards are multi-layer and require special desoldering/soldering equipment to avoid potential damage to the circuit board. Based on what you have posted it appears to be a problem with the jack. I haven't looked at this PC but many have a small board for the I/O and that is the best option - replace that "daughter" boardl

I just bought a pair of philips noise cancelling headphones.
Model: SBC HN110
Sound Card is Audigy 2 ZS.

I have tried playing farcry with these new headphones and well, it doesn't work correctly.
I have tried it with noise cancelling off and with it on. (Button to one side of the headphones to turn it off/on.)

Let me try to explain. I have Music disabled to start, I only have sound effects on. With the new Headphones, I can hear myself walk, and move through water and brush. The sounds are normal. But, when fireing the weapon it only makes sound if the bullets hit something, like ground or an enemy, If I fire into the sky, it will not make shooting sounds. It will make the empty clip sound. A flying helicopter will making the chopper Blade sound Sound. No washing water on the shore sound or guys yelling or talking to or at me.

So I have played with the settings, I have re enabled music, but no music, I have tried every combination of the hardware mixing and eax sounds and doppler effect boxs at the bottom of the sound box in options. And it still remains the same.

It only happens in farcry.
Sounds and music is/are fine in supreme commander and COD2.
Music Plays fine and so to does .avi or movie files.

Now, I have tried playing with the master controls in control panel, but still the problem remains.

Should I:

Uninstall and then reinstall Sound card Drivers.

Or other? Any suggestions.

Hi guys

Today I purchased a microphone/headphone set. It is just a plug and play one. I came home and plugged it in, the microphone works fine but I can't get my headphone speakers to work.

So far I have tried:

Plug in the headphone port on the front of the computer - they don't work.

Plug in the line in port at the back (where my desktop speakers are plugged in) - they do work, but of course then I don't have my desktop speakers working.

Went into speaker options through control panel and of the 3 coloured ports, I selected for the middle one to be headphone - plugged it in - didn't work.

So I have 3 coloured ports, top being line in which I have the desktop speakers plugged in to, Middle being either line out or headphone, and bottom being microphone. Then I have the headphone port at the front. I have realtek ac97 drivers. So I'm not sure whether the drivers aren't set up for headphones or what the problem is.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Answer:Problem with headphone speakers

1) Your speakers have to be plugged into LineOut because LineIn is for another input from a stereo, etc.....
2) The normal place for headphones is the same port as the speakers (LineOut) Many speakers also have a headphone jack on them which disables the speakers when you plug in the headphones or you can buy a 3.5mm splitter which will give you two jacks; one for the speakers and one for the headphones.

Be warned; though, that leaving your speakers up when you use the mic causes an echo problem wherein your mic picks up the speaker sounds.

Answer:Lenovo G50 speaker & headphone problem

Hi TheKennethLush  , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
One other option that is usually done on this event is system restore to previous working state before the audio issue. 
You can also try rollback drivers or uninstalling and reinstall the audio drivers from the device manager . 
Support site offers new drivers available for your system. 
 
If both internal and right headphone is not working at the same time , it may either be the drivers or audio board inside.
 
To best isolate it fastest between hardware and software is the Factory restore Onekey recovery. 
It would delete everything and you need to back up first. Out of the box settings would be restored. 
To acces it , turn on the computer using the Novo key , a small button usually next to the power to launch System Recovery from Initial back up.  
 
If you would stilll have the same issue then best you check on current warranty service type you have and call in support.  
 
Update us how it goes for you.

When I click headphone jack I don't see any headphone icon in sound settings. Also as I understood in late releases there is no realtek sound manager .... So what to do???

Answer:Realtek Left Right Headphone Problem

Are you inserting the 3.5mm headset plug fully? If it's only partially plugged in you will only get one side.

Hi guys

Im new to the forums, ... looked through a lot of threads for info on my problem. Cant find anything to help me. Figured maybe i can sign up and post my problem... hoping one of you smart guys might catch the answer.

The short: audio plays through back audio jack and front audio jack at the same time.

Would like for my computer to recognize that the front(headphones) is plugged in and stop playing sound through the speakers. (Late night computer usage)

Details: Motherboard: Geforce7050m-m
Using onboard sound.
Currently using Realtek Hd audio manager Version 6.0.1.5953
What i have tried: (pretty much ripped a hole in google by searching every forum on the subject)
-Opened my computer to check if my front audio jacks are plugged in
-plugged in my headphones - no sound
-found in article about marking "disable front panel jack detection"
-sounds works through headphones, in front jack YAY
-now both speakers and headphones play sound.

-installed drivers from ECS website for my motherboard
-installed drivers from realtek.com latest

Nothing worked to control the sound coming from one device at a time.
Weird things: A lot of people have device advanced settings. I dont.
- in those options there should be an option where it says "mute rear output device, when front headphones are plugged in"
-i wish i had that option, but i dont get the advanced folder at all.

So I have a splitter that allows me to use speakers for when nobody's around and headphones for when they are.

The problem is that the cable that plugs into the computer from the speakers is only long enough that I am forced to put the right speaker on the left side. Is there a software program that could allow me to switch the sound output on my speakers?

Hi, Spartan

I'm glad to hear you are so socially responsible with your sound.

In answer to your question. Yes and No!. Yes but it would only work in the program concerned, not as a general channel swop, which is set in hardware. Audio editing programs such as Cubase will do it.

Can't these beneficiaries of your restraint club together to get you an extension? They are very cheap.

I have been having trouble with a USB stereo headphone/mic set in so far that it would suddenly cease to work.After much picking and poking I have a last a clue as what is going on or not.The Sound system is the on board RealTek AC97.However the phones work through the installed AC21 software.The problem has been that AC97 is the default and the computer will revert.But it takes clicking through Control Panel/sounds/Audio to reselect AC21.So what what I am seeking is it it possible to do it via a desktop icon?

I have a Dell Dimension E521 with Sigma Tell Audio built-in and SB Live as an add-on. My computer has headphone and mic jack(s) in the front and I want to run my headphone/mic combo from these jacks. I will use this headphone/mic combo for a chat program but want to keep my digital desktop speakers running through SB Live because I can't find a digital switch in Sigma Tell. I know I am missing something somewhere and just can't figure this out. Can you help me? Thank you in advance.

Greetings!
I'm new here, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes I'm sure to make (if I'm even indeed in the right place).

First off, the issue is that randomly my center speaker on my LTB HSMT-UD True 5.1 USB Headphones decided not to work as of today. I noticed when all the sound was in place with the exception of the voices being muted. Here's a link to the headphones that I bought:

http://www.amazon.com/LTB-HSMT-UD-T...?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1286272348&sr=1-58

Now normally I would chalk this up to being broken, however it interestingly decided to work for a few minutes. Unfortunately, the fix was only temporary. However, something is very strange and that's why I bring it up. If I do this in the speaker setup:

There's a very faint noise for the test. But if I turn it off like so:

Then test it, It's crystal clear! Just like before! What in the world gives? Is there still hope? I've tried to update the driver, and uninstall and reinstall it to no avail.

Here are my computer specs if it's relevant:

Processor AMD Athlon II 620 Quad-Core Processor
Memory (RAM) 6GB
Type of Memory DDR3
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Video Graphics nVidia GeForce 9100
Sound:
Audio CODEC: Realtek ALC888S
High Definition 8 channel audio
Supports one S/PDIF digital connection

This is an odd one...
 
I have a Yoga 2 Pro, which has served me very well for over a year now.
 
But very recently I have encountered a problem now.
 
The computer thinks headphones are plugged in all the time now! No sound will come out of the speakers, despite all the windows 10 software telling me that there is no problem, and that the speakers are the only outlet. Even the sound controls recognises sound (the equaliser rise and fall).
 
Sound works perfectly when the headphones are plugged in. And even more recently, the notification that goes 'Information: you have just plugged/unplugged a device into the audio jack' is now alternating andspamming my laptop every once in a while, with sound coming in, and then turning off, with nothing in the jack!
Any advice would be welcomed, as I have trawled the internet to find a solution, yet have come up empty handed.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro - Headphone Jack Problem!

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I'm not an owner of your model, but one thought came to mind.  Possibly the contacts inside the headphone port are sticking thus the machine thinks the headphones are always inserted.  Try repeatedly inserting and removing the headphone plug to see if the problem will clear.

Tried a set of HW-398M cordless headphones. Windows found and paired them but i got no sound. I went into all sound tabs and return to default and apply were greyed out on all pages. Even stranger when i went to the test sound tab all the frequency tabs were greyed out so when i pressed play nothing happened. yes i did set the headset as the main playback/record object. I would be interested to hear from anyone who had similar problems and what you did about it as i am now unsure about trying a different make in case the same thing happens again.

So I've had a Lenovo Yoga 710-151KB for about half a year now and it's been pretty good so far, at least compared to my previous laptop. However, its headphone jack suddenly stopped working today. It was working fine before I went to bed last night, and I haven't downloaded anything or even visited any websites other than youtube between then and now. All of my drivers are updated and the headphones work fine with my phone. Also, the laptop seems to recognize when they're plugged in (sound stops coming out of the speakers), but it doesn't recognize what they are (ie the Sound application still lists them as "disconnected"). I tried plugging in my roommate's headphones too and the same thing happened. What should I do?

Never mind - I updated my BIOS and the problem fixed itself!
