Inspiron 15 5559 i7 6th gen, left speaker sound crackling on high levels

Question: Inspiron 15 5559 i7 6th gen, left speaker sound crackling on high levels

Hi,
I bought a new Dell Inspiron 5559 i7 6th gen Laptop on 1st November, I faced the distorting and crackling issue in the beginning but i checked the solutions here and switched the realtek driver to the windows default driver and it was working well until today. I have tested my dell speakers on various test videos available online and the general speaker configure option of windows, laptops right speaker is working good but left produces a crackling noise at high pitch sound. Please tell me what should i do? I have done multiple reinstalls of the driver but nothing worked. I have decided that its a hardware fault, just trying my luck here.
Regards

Answer: Inspiron 15 5559 i7 6th gen, left speaker sound crackling on high levels

Hi virengupta13,Thanks for posting.If the noise is only coming through one of the speakers and it is not there when you listen through headphones, then the speaker probably needs to be replaced. If you are still under warranty you can contact Tech Support, but before you do remove all media players except Windows Media Player, or else you will be denied warranty service.

I recently discovered a difference in the volume; the left speaker of the laptop has been functioning normally while there seems to be very low to no sound coming from the right speaker.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 5559 Audio - Right Speaker has low volume while the left speaker functions normally

Hello.You didn't mention the headphone jack, so if you have not yet done so, plug in headphones and see if the balance is okay in them. If the headphones check out okay, then most probably it's a problem related to the speakers.
The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if the test  tones are very low in the right speaker, but normal in the left speaker, then there is hardware failure somewhere, related to the right speaker.
If both speakers sound normal during the test, then the problem is in the software. Do the usual things like re-install the audio driver, check the balance levels in the Sound properties, try different audio sources, etc.
Re-installing the audio driver resets the settings to their default configurations, so if you do it then you don't have to bother with things like volumes and balance settings, because they will be okay.(Also if the balance is okay through headphones, then it should be okay through the speakers too.)
Here is how to do a simple driver re-install:
1.    Open the Device Manager.2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

I recently bought a Dell inspiron 5559 (June 1, 2017). I then noticed that whenever I play audio like music or videos and plug the adapter out, I would hear a crackling sound, sounds as if its coming from the speakers. When I pause the sound and unplug then play audio the sound is made so I'm guessing the problem seems to exist whether I play audio or not. No matter where I plug the adapter out, it makes that sound. I'm worried that it might destroy the laptop, or that this is a defect that might start a fire if its a lack in how the adapter was made. It is a 45 w adapter according to what is labelled on it. sometimes i get a message saying "adapter is not recognized. system performance will be impacted etc" and I guess it happens if I don't plug the cord in properly? or is it not suppose to say that at all? Nonetheless, my main worry is the sound the laptop makes when I unplug the adapter. It goes on for maybe 3 or 4 seconds and sounds like a radio transceiver. Please comment if you know what this means, Thank you.

Hi.I purchased x1 yoga about a week ago. Since the day after the first use, I have been having a problem with the left speaker which gives a crackling sound with higher than about 70 % of the volume. The volume where crackling starts varies depending on the source of the sound (talk show, music, whatever). I updated all the softwares and drivers with the latest versions on windows 10 and the problem doesn't seem to be resolved. Can somebody help me out with this?

Hello.
I own a Dell Inspiron 5559 with a i5 6260u CPU.  
I have a problem with the right speaker. It stopped working properly, there is a constant buzzing. I tried to reinstall the driver, to troubleshoot it, I performed a sound card check, but everything showed up as being fine. The left speaker works perfectly, only the right one has problems. I don't know what to do with it, looks like a hardware problem.

This ones got me currently stumped. When playing vid files and mp3's, I'm getting a harsh crackling sound out of my left speaker. This occurs in Media Center, WMP and VLC.

It's not my speakers or amp because Vista / DVD / 360 is perfectly fine.

I have tried installing audio drivers WITH and WITHOUT compatibility mode with no difference. I have installed / uninstalled Vista Codec Package with no difference. I swore at it with no difference

On my Old PC, I had no crackling problems in 7. With my new mobo I do. I have also installed the Asus mobo chipset drivers under compatability mode (wouldn't work otherwise)

So basically I've temporarily run out of ideas, however I'm leaning to a mobo chipset issue. Any ideas?

All of a sudden, my asus transformer's left speaker started to make an ugly buzzy and lound noise with any sound that is played. It might be relative that I got another weird error when both of my speakers and headphone jack did not produce any sounds. When I tried to test the sound, windows gave me "failed to play test tone".

It worthy of note that I clicked the compress drive option on my C drive a few days ago to save space, so it also might be related, or is it a hardware failure problem?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Inspiron 5559 laptop no sound

Hello. No sound from just the speakers, or no sound from the speakers or the headphone jack? If no sound from either one, try the following things.
> Try using System Restore (type system restore into the Windows search box) and revert to a date before the audio stopped.
> If that does not help. perform a basic re-installation of the Realtek audio driver.
1.    Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer. Windows will detect your device and re-install the driver. The driver is re-built from files that are in a folder on the hard drive.

Answer:Crackling sound from new Satellite L500-1XC right speaker

It is not easy to say what is wrong there but if you have this crackling sound permanently maybe is there some serious problem with the speaker.
Try to contact your local dealer as soon as possible and ask for replacement. In my opinion he should take the notebook back and give you new product.

Answer:Satellite P100-192: crackling sound coming from speaker when using MSN

Hi

I have investigated in this forum for some answers and it seems that the sound driver update will solve this issue.
There is an updated Sound Driver (V3.11.0.51) available which solve this crackling sound.

But before installing the updated sound driver at least the BIOS version 2.10 or higher should be installed on the notebook.
Be careful. You have to use the right BIOS and right BIOS update procedure!

Hello Sorry If this is in the wrong place but I couldn't find a board for IdeaPad 700. I've had this laptop for a decent while (almost a year) and although it hasn't really bothered me much in the past, it's really starting to bother me now as I'm now usually in an area with more people (libraries, lecture theatres etc.). Everytime I start up my laptop, I can hear a constant crackling sound (which would continue until I shut down the laptop but would continue again right as I turned it back on) and sometimes a beep or two but mainly from underneath my laptop where the fans are located or where my right speakers are located. I'm not sure if it is a sound card issue or a driver issue as I don't hear anything like that through my headphones and the sound is perfect, however, the crackling noise still continues on my laptop itself. When I play music or watch any video through my speakers, the sound from the left speaker seems fine but the sound from the right speakers sometimes becomes distorted and you can hear like a quiet mumbling sound of the music or video underneath. I've also noticed that when I am using my scroll wheel on my mouse or scrolling using my touch pad, the crackling gets louder but as soon as I stop scrolling, it goes back to its "normal" crackling sound. I'm not sure if this is enough information but I really have no other idea of how to accurately describe the sound.

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK crackling sound (speaker?)

Hi VinceZent , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Try booting on the BIOS using the Novo key (item6 page6) to turn on and press a bit on the scrolling on the touchpad.
Check if same sound appears booting on another live media is available.
 
Reviewing the placement of the touchpad to the systemfan and right speakers , I think mechanically is an issue with the fan. Pressure can be done by the touchpad passing it to the fan and underlying structure including the speakers as ,maybe just a cable on the wrong place since expected that it would be silent on this model. 
 
You don't have to change on the softwares but I would encourage you giving technical support a call for in warranty service and option that you can decide on. 
 
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how things go.

Answer:Speaker crackling sound with media player on Equium

Hi

Does the crackling sound appear since a first day?
Does it happen if you play CD's or watch movies?
Maybe some codex are missing.

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

However, I have also read that sometimes a new OS installation could solve such issues.
I don't know why but possibly some files on the HDD could be damage.

Last week, I purchased a Dell Precision 5510 with Windows 7 and the audio was working fine, but on Saturday night I was watching a video on Netflix when the right-side speaker started to crackle. I followed the instructions on a number of tutorials including reinstalling the RealTek audio drivers and switching to the windows default drivers, but none of these things have gotten rid of the crackling.
Of note, the crackling only starts when the audio is raised somewhere around the 50% capacity mark or beyond, but it is a constant and persistent annoyance at that point.  I am of the belief that this is a hardware issue at this point, but any insight others could provide before I contact Dell Support would be appreciated.

Answer:Dell Precision 5510 Crackling Sound from Right-side Speaker

Hi waxenwings,Thanks for posting.Does this exist using external speakers or just the internal ones?  Have you tried headphones?In some cases, this may be caused by a conflict with SRS audio enhancement package and Adobe Flash. This has been escalated.Possible solutions include uninstall the SRS Audio package from Add\Remove Programs-Programs and Features. Reboot and test the system. Update Adobe Flash. Reinstall the SRS Audio package from Drivers and Downloads from support.dell.com and test again.If none of that's working, then contact Tech Support for additional troubleshooting.

Hello. A speaker that doesn't work after restoring with the Factory Image is because of hardware failure, either a loose connection or dead speaker.
If you want to perform another test to make sure, run the audio test in the ePSA utility (or PSA on some models). These tests are in motherboard memory and do not depend on Winows or drivers -- in other words it is a purely hardware test, so if you don't hear the sounds during the test, it means hardware failure.

Answer:Audio playing through left speaker only on dell inspiron 7567 laptop

sandy5837Is there some setting i am missing out on or is it a hardware issue.
Hello. This is the audio hardware test for the laptop's internal audio hardware. It works differently from the other tests. If no sound is heard through the laptop's right speaker during that test, then the cause is hardware failure. If it passes, then it's software.
If it is software, then download and install a fresh copy of the audio driver. Get it from your model's support page, or I can give you a link. Installing a fresh copy will re-set the audio settings, which would fix it if the cause is mis-configuration of the settings.

I have just recently encountered a problem where my speakers are playing/making crackling/popping sounds. However, I know this is because of my computer because I hooked my speakers up to my phone and it worked perfectly fine. I'm also aware that if I play a sound over bluetooth the sound doesn't happen. I've run the trouble shooting program 10 times, and after it caused my system sounds to termporarly stop working (fixed by restarting computer) I stopped running it. I believe this is being caused by the Realtek High Definition Audio driver, however im not positive. I've tried going to Device Manager and updating it but it doesnt solve the problem, in fact while trying all this it actually got worse. Before 5 days ago I had never had this problem, and my computer came with Windows 10 installed. I have also noticed that it mostly occurs with my left speaker and hardly at all with my right. I have a HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop, and i've had it for around a year. Any reccomendations on what to do?

Can anyone help here?

I got a Dell Inspiron 1525 back in September. Runs on Vista.

A few weeks ago, I began noticing a crackling sound that was coming from the top left hand corner of the keyboard section of the laptop, right near where the 'Inspiron' logo is. It doesn't usually start until I've had the computer running for 30 minutes or so.

I called Dell and shipped the computer to their facility since it's still under warranty. They sent it back saying that they could not detect any problem with any of the hardware and therefore, did not fix anything. Sure enough, after getting it back and turning it on and being on it for 30 minutes or so, the sound is still there.

Everything about the computer works fine...the Internet, my progams. It isn't slow or anything. But this sound just doesn't sound right.

Does anyone have any ideas what this may be? Could it be an issue with the laptop's fans? If so, aren't the fans considered to be part of the hardware?

Thanks for any light anyone may be able to shed on this issue.

- Brian

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I got my Y510p this week and while I'm really happy with it, I'm thinking of returning this laptop because the sound is unacceptably bad. This seems to be somewhat common problem with this model (2x GT755M) and I've tried most of the proposed solutions with no luck. Deleting audio drivers, reinstalling new Realtek HD Audio drivers, playing with settings etc. Nothing seems to fix that annoying crackling sound quality. The thing is that this only happens when using Windows 8's (not 8.1) High and Balanced power plans. With Power Saver mode the sound is still not great but accectable. I hope that someone has found a working solution, would be shame to have to start playing with warranty and returns when I'm otherwise impressed by my Y510p. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Y510p Sound problem, crackling with High Performance mode

I don't have this issue in mine and I only use balanced mode. Our sounds fine with little distortion at even highest volume. It also sounds pretty good with my ath-m50's of the head phone jack. How loud is yours when listening to the Windows volume change sound since at 14 % mines already pretty loud. You might have a hardware defect going on.





I own a Y510p SLI (retired), Yoga 2 Pro, and a P50 4K.

I could make sound come from both speakers if I pulled the cord going from the computer to the sub out of the sub a little bit, but it was just the sound coming from the left side being played on both sides, so I was still missing sound supposed to be playing on the right side.

You can configure through the sound manager application of your system. For instance, if your system uses a Realtek HD Audio, you can configure the speaker using Realtek HD Audio Manager.

The problem is REALLY weird, but I know the source, I think.

I've tried multiple players, replugging in the speaker wire and messing with where the sound should come from, none helping.

However, I recently got a headset, and I'm pretty sure it's the reason my system reconfigurated itself... The headset has one speaker part (which is weird, I need to return it anyway) and it's on the right side, and when I move the speaker volume to the left side it goes silent.

So for some reason my left speaker = right, and vice versa, and it only wants to give output from the side where I have my headset speaker part.

I hope that was clear enough..

Hello,
Recently after opening up my computer for the first time and installing a new video card (SAPPHIRE 3650) I have no sound in the left speaker of anything, while the right speaker is perfectly fine. My new headset, my speakers that came with the computer and my old headset all don't have left speaker sound. I have checked the balances and they are all equal, if I turn them to the left I get no sound at all.

When I installed the latest ati drivers I disabled the hd sound drivers that it has so it the sound would work. The sound still doesn't work in any left speaker after a reinstall of windows I did a few days ago.

Hi,

I have a problem with the speakers on the Toshiba Satllite A350-20S. When I turn the sound on all I get is a crackling sound with a loud high pitched whistle. Seems to sort itself out if I plug in external speakers but a have a similar problem if I plug in a microphone. Thin k this might be related to the microphone on the chicony web cam not working.

I upgraded to windows 7 shortly after getting the laptop and so far have tried downloading new drivers for the web cam, but this doesn't appear to have helped.

Any thoughts or advice more than welcome!

Hi,

First post here.

The problem is that I am getting no sound from my left hand PC speaker. The right hand one is playing fine. I have unplugged them from the back of the tower and plugged them in again and this makes no difference, although I did hear some very, very low sound from the left speaker while the plug was halfway back in the tower.

I have tried another set of speakers and the same thing is happening with them, so I know the speakers themselves are not faulty.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Rich.
 

Answer:No Sound From Left Hand PC Speaker

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

If onboard, then try a separate soundcard. If you`re already using a separate soundcard, then try the onboard sound.

I had no problem with sound until I installed Winamp 2.91 and when I played my CD there was no sound coming from the left speaker. I checked my QCD Media Player, which played fine before this and it too was only playing sound from the right speaker as well as my other two media players which played fine before this. The only media player I have which plays from both speakers now is Windows Media Player. I uninstalled Winamp and yet the problem persists.
What could be disabling the left speaker in my other players and yet allowing it in Windows media player? Also, the odd thing is that, when I use the other media players, which now only play through the right speaker, I have use of the features on the CD unit such as the headphone jack and the advance button (to advance to the next track) but when I use Windows media Player I do not have use of these features. Confusing.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Jordan_nelson,
 
Welcome to the Forums        
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with speaker faulty in your Lenovo Y40-80 laptop.
 
As you have mentioned that when you lift the laptop the sound comes back through speakers, this might be issue with the speaker as it may not be placed properly. Before sending out to service center try to uninstall the audio driver and check with windows generic driver and try to reinstall the audio driver and check for the issue.

Hi, I have just purchased a Toshiba Satellite L650.

For some reason the sound is only coming out of the left speaker and no sound is coming out at all from the right speaker. Also even though I raise the volume the sound still seems very low. I have looked at and played around with settings and even speaker balances without luck.

Please help.

Hi Rick1968,

Theoretically the left speaker could be defective and needs replacing...
What you can do is checking the sound settings where you can test different balances. Furthermore make sure that newest sound driver from official Toshiba website is installed.

hi Razon.
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Your issue might similar to this thread.
 
If you have already installed the Realtek.HD Audio Drivers vR2.71 with the same problem, can you try to use a headset / earphones.
 
If the sound is ok, there's probably a short on the speaker or on the wires that connects the speaker to the systemboard and you may need to contact lenovo on how to rectify this issue.
 
 
 
Hope this helps.

Hi all. Long time..........

I just went behind my wife's back and bought a few upgrades for the computer.....Now I have to show their worth.....or else....lol

I bought a new hard disc. The WD caviar Black 1 TB
I bought a second (used GTX260) so I could finally visit SLI land....

And I bought a sound card. My first ever. I always have cheaped out in the past on sound....going with onboard sound...

So I bought a nice new Soundblaster X-FI Titanium.

I installed everything at once. Did a new install of windows and the day and a half of updating of the software.....Jeez that sucked.
I finally have everything working, except this rear speaker thing. Setting up the Mic was a bugger too, but I think I have that done.

Here is the issue. When I do a channel test, you can hear the test signal from all the channles fine, but when you get to the rear left, it comes out of the subwoofer, very faintly.
I have read tons of posts from angry folks who are having similar probs with this. Some say its the cables....(even though they worked fine on onboard sound) Some say I have to disable the onboard sound in the mixer....etc.

I have come here to see if any of you fine folks have a solution that works.....

Sorry for the long post......Thanks for taking the time.
Ps, I am running Vista service pack 2
speakers are the Z5500 using the 6 channel direct. (3 stereo jacks)
(I was thinking of going to toslink to see if that helps)

Cheers.
Corey.
 

Answer:Solved: No sound from rear left speaker, X-fi Titanium.

Okay. First let me apologize to the 62 people who read my post. Sorry, I am an idiot.
I thought I had checked and rechecked everything before posting, but I missed a loose wire where my rear speaker wires connect to the wall plate where they go in wall up to the location on my back wall.....I reconnected the wire, and bam. It works great.
I was also able to figure out how to get my pc to output digital audio through the card to my z5500 speakers...
You have to start the Creative audio service. To get to it, I had to type something into the search bar just above the start button. Of course stupid me, I did not write down what it was....
But if you read this post, its a good place to look....if you are having probs with your digital output.

Hey guys! I need help with a sound issue I have on my computers at home using an Altec Lansing Multimedia Speaker system 2100 (2 speakers and a sub) and Win7 Home Premium (64-bit). In Windows XP I used to simply plug the speakers in the output of the computer (green jack) and sound would go to all speakers but now with win7 sound is only played from sub and right speaker, while the left speaker does nothing. At first I thought the left speaker may be busted, but when I switch the right and left jack connections behind the sub, the left speaker plays (through the Right speaker output) and the right speaker stops playing. So I tried putting the 2.1 sound system on an XP computer to make sure it still works fine and it does. Any ideas?

Answer:No sound in left speaker using Altec 2.1 system in Windows 7

You need to change the sound settings. Open control panel. Make sure the view is set to small icons. click Sound. Right click your sound card and select Configure speakers. You should select one of the boxes under Full Range Speakers. If it doesn't work after the speakers are properly configured, then double click your sound card and you be able to change more options from there. You might also have an icon for you sounds card in control panel that options can be changed through. The main thing to look for is a 2.1 option.

Based on what you have written under you system specs, it looks like you are using the basic default Microsoft drivers for your sound card. Installing the latest drivers from you manufacturer would help solve any sound issues.

OS: Windows XP Pro SP1
Speakers: Atlantec Lansing 3-piece
Audio Playback: Intel Integrated Audio

The right speaker plays fine, as does the subwoofer. The left speaker does not play. I checked it with an audio meter to see if output was being sent. It was, but at about 20 db lower than the right. Also, if I cranked the volume, and set the Winamp output to left speaker, I could faintly hear the subwoofer and right speaker. Under normal circumstances, though, I don't hear anything if I set output to only the left speaker (not even the subwoofer plays). The problem appeared, seemingly randomly, a few days ago. I don't think I noticed it for maybe a day or so.

I'm on Fedora (Linux) as of now, and it all works fine. Anything I normally could do, I can do. I tried cold booting Windows before this, and that didn't work. I tried both my regular 3-piece set, and a pair of headphones. Both left speakers failed to play on Windows, but both do fine on Fedora (playing with XMMS). Certainly, neither WMP, Winamp, or Quicktime on Windows produced any sound in the left speaker. I did nothing out of normal, other than investigate some Winamp options. Also, I've never seen the Windows-provided ability to mute one speaker and not the other.

Any ideas?

I have an R630-11L.

Inconsistently, a sound similar to what you hear on tv when there is no signal (hissshhh) comes out from it. It porduces this sound every few days but when it comes it sticks for several hours but on and off. Restarting does not solve the problem.

Later on, I figured out if I mute the speakers, the sound goes away. Apparently it is coming through the left speaker of the laptop

It is annoying, especially when you want to concentrate on work or when you want to play an audio file while this sound is active.

I also noticed the left side of the laptop is where most of the heat is concentrated and the fan. Not sure if this is related or not.


My PC Health Monitor says everything is ok, Tempro shows no updates, and actions in the Action Center. So I believe everything is up to date on my machine.

Anyone with similar problem? Any suggested solutions?

You may or may not have seen my other issue with this laptop which resulted in a replacement unit.

Now for the replacement, i've had it for about a week and everything was perfect up until last night where i started hearing a crackling sound coming from one of the speakers. (At the time i was playing a racing game so the audio was engine sound, a particular range of engine note resulted in the speakers to crackle).

I was immediately concerned and turned the volume down and logged off. I came back today to test the issue and see if the problem persisted. While i have not heard the crackling sound today there is a very loud "pop" sound which comes from the left hand speaker.

The Pop sound occurs at the start or end of a sound being played. Regularly doing so at the end of a youtube video if the video is cut short by a change of webpage.

I don't want to have to request a replacement because of the hassle caused but may end up doing so if the problems cannot be resolved. I have noticed similar issues with other people's laptops on some forums so i am checking audio drivers and other software which could've created the problem.

Answer:Re: Satellite P850-12x loud "pop" sound comes from the left hand speaker

Hi

Do you have an smart audio installed on your system?
I read in one thread about more powerful sound which was produced from left speaker.
The solution was to disable the 3d immersion option available in Smart Audio.

But if your speaker hardware is affected, then this option would be useless in your case?
Maybe you would need to get in contact with the ASP again to solve this problem

Hi Questionerer,

Seen as though you have tested with your mobile phone and sound IS coming out of your two speakers, it is safe to say that the speaker is not at fault.

I think that your computer is outputting sound panned right, in other words its only sending the audio information to the left side speaker.

To help you with this problem and to eliminate any driver problems please can you do the following:

I'm not sure if it's a problem with my drivers or if my speakers are just broken. They were just kinda cheap ones I picked up at best buy, here's the model:

Insignia?„? - Powered Computer Speakers with Subwoofer (3-Piece) - Black/Silver/Gray - NS-PSD5321 | Insignia

Theyre unique because there's a central "pod" (you see in the picture) that plugs into the audio jack on my PC (it's also the power/volume control). I can plug headphones into that hub to switch the sound to headphones. From a the hub, a cord goes to the subwoofer. The Left and Right speakers connect into a single jack in the subwoofer.

My computer is acting like both my Left and Right speakers are JUST the right speaker. When I turn down the Right sound balance, both speakers get quieter. When I turn up the Left balance, the Subwoofer gets louder.

However, the sound balance when I use HEADPHONES is still just fine. It uses my left and right "speakers" correctly.

Are the speakers just broken? Or is it possible that my driver is confusing the speakers somehow? I googled and couldn't find anyone else with this issue.

Answer:Left/Right Speaker Balance Using Subwoofer as Left Speaker

Wrong jack on the computer?

My laptop has recently started producing a really high pitched sound when I play music or videos. For one particular video, it's not for the duration of the video, but comes and goes when the voiceover starts. Lowering the volume lowers the volume of the screech, but it's still the same high pitched sound. I trying disabling the mike, but that hasn't made a difference.

I have a 3520 that was upgraded to Windows 10.  It was giving just 3 beeps on post and nothing else.  I replaced the system board as per Dell, and now it boots up but the right speaker is silent.  The left one works fine though.  I tried headphones and they work normally with sound out of both sides.  I replaced the speakers but it did no good, same issue.  I checked all the audio settings and they are correct.  Any ideas?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 3520 - sound not working on right speaker only

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
We would like you to perform one more test before we conclude a hardware failure , please run the PSA ( LCD test ) and confirm if the same this happens.

This notebook (less than 3hours out of the box) emits a very faint but annoying high-pitched noise.

A google search suggests this is not uncommon in Toshiba's notebook range but I've not found any 'fixes'.

Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

Answer:Satellite Pro S - High-pitched sound from left of touchpad

Hi!

What Satellite notebook you have exactly?

It?s not easy to say what the reason is for this but sometimes that sounds are caused from the HDD. So maybe you should check the HDD using Drive Fitness Test or you start the notebook without HDD and go in the BIOS. Do you hear the sound without HDD too?

I have bought brand new Dell inspiron 3542, it has maxxaudio wave speaker. The muffling sound is emitting from laptop... The latest virson oh audio driver is already installed and the internal setting also is normal. Please help me solve this problem .... i don't know either it is hardware problem or software problem. 

Answer:Muffled and Whispered sound in Inspiron 3542 from maxxaudio speaker

Rakshit Trivedi i don't know either it is hardware problem or software problem. 
Hello. Test by switching to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the Realtek and select to uninstall.4. Put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software, and then ok.5. Restart the laptop and go back to the Device Manager and check again for a Realtek driver. Keep uninstalling & restarting until Realtek no longer appears under Sound...Controllers and "High Definition Audio Device" appears in its place. "High Definition Audio Device" is the name of the native driver.
[The reason you might have to go through the process more than once is because the driver files for more than one Realtek driver could be on the hard drive. When a Realtek driver is removed, the next one gets installed if Windows can locate the files. Windows installs its generic driver only after all Realtek files have been removed.]
6. At this point, test the audio while the native driver is installed and see if the same problem occurs.
7. When finished testing, download and install a fresh copy of the Realtek driver for your operating system. Get it from your Dell support page. Test the audio again
If the same problem occurs with both the Realtek and the native driver, then probably not a software issue.

I met a strange issue. The sound from the internal speaker is automatically shut off when my T410s CPU temperature is high (e.g. >72 C after playing some youtube videos for a while). But the sound from the headphone works fine regardless the temperature. The sound from the internal speaker is usually back after I press the volume up/down button, but it only lasts for a short while so that I'll have to press the volume up/down button very often to get the sound continuously in high temperature. This is really annoying. So I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem? Thanks. BTW: I bought my T410s (model:2901CTO) with windows 7 pro about 3 years ago. TPfancontrol was used.

Answer:no sound from internal speaker when my T410s CPU temperature is high (>72 °C). Headphone works fine

Welcome to the forum!
 
I'd suggest booting a "live" Linux CD/DVD and verifying whether the issue persists in that environment.
 
Good luck.

I have had a 5.1 speaker arrangement on my Vista x64 PC for some time. Today, the front left speaker decided to stop working correctly. When trying to plug my headphones in to a rear jack on my motherboard (onboard sound), I noticed that sound was only coming through the right earphone. I decided to give up with trying to listen through my headphones for the time being and plugged my speakers back in, only to find that now my front left speaker wasn't working correctly. I tried to adjust the balance on my speakers, as I thought I could hear a whisper of a sound through the front left.
The front left speaker is producing sound, but at a greatly reduced volume to the rest of the speakers, I have to set the balance to the following to make FL and FR speakers 'the same' volume (by ear).
FL volume: 100
FR volume: 0
I have my speakers plugged in to 3 jacks on my motherboard (out of 6).
The green jack for FL and FR.The black jack for RL and RR.The orange jack for C and SubW.I have been unsucessful installing Realtek (which is a shame, because on my last motherboard I was able to solve the problem with that somehow, but I can't remember how) as it states the drivers are not supported. Which I'm assuming means my motherboard doesn't support it.
My motherboard is an MSI Intel p35 Neo.
I have had this setup working fine for around a month.My speakers are labtec (but I don't see how that would matter).I am currently using the normal drivers that come with Vista.Any ideas?

About 4 days ago, when I started playing music over the speakers I noticed that the right speaker was wayy quieter than the left one. The one on the left sounds like it should at a medium level of volume. I've already tried directing all sound through one over the other and the diffference is significant. I've also tried playing music that is mono such that the same level of audio is expected through both speakers. I can't determine whats wrong and this is so upsetting only having had this laptop for about 2 months or so. Could you help me out?

Answer:Lenovo y510p right speaker much quieter than left speaker

hi pmadhikar,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Can you consider doing the following:
1. Uninstall the Realtek Audio Driver (reboot if necessary) and let Windows use a generic sound driver and observe
2. Use an earphones to see if the volume on the left / right speakers are balanced.
 
If the volume is balanced using an earphones without adjusting the sound levels under Sound Properties then it's likely that the right speaker is showing signs of imminent failure. In this case, I recommend you report your findings by contacting lenovo as you may need to get this replaced.

Hi,
My dell inspiron 14z 5423 no longer have sound from both the speakers and the earphone jack.
This happened after I replaced the Battery and also the hard disk from 500gb to 1TB and upgraded to windows 10.
Before this, I was using Windows 8.1 and everything was working well. I have returned it back to windows 8.1 but the no audio problem still persist.
Also, my speaker symbol on the task bar shows a "cross" sign with "no audio output installed" displaying when I hover on the speaker icon.
Please I need help. have tried all options i can think of including driver updates.
One more thing, the sound driver are not showing up on the device manager window where other drivers are displayed.

Thanks

pizzz4allthe sound driver are not showing up on the device manager window where other drivers are displayed.
Hello. Download this Win8.1 IDT audio driver for the Inspiron 14z 5423. There are two versions there -- get the one that says "File Format Hard Drive". Follow the installation instructions and see if the driver shows up in Device Manager.
If it doesn't, perform the PSA or ePSA sound test. If no sound during the test then there has been hardware failure. Could have happened during parts replacement.

Question: Speaker Crackling

Hello,

My laptop speaker makes crackling sound when I play videos through browser and in vlc player too. And its only from one speaker(Left). Is this purely a hardware problem or could be because of software/driver issues ?
 

Answer:Speaker Crackling

Now that you're facing problems with only one speaker, its most probably a hardware problem.
If I ever face any problem like this, the first thing I'd do is boot up my laptop using a live linux cd/usb and try playing something.
Try it. If its plays fine, update your sound driver and codec pack

Today suddenly the right speaker became louder than the left speaker( I think before the two speakers had the same volume level).
Then the right speaker just stopped working and if I test it, the left plays the sound.

The left speaker sound is deep.

What can I do?

Answer:Re: Qosmio F50-10G - right speaker louder than the left speaker

Hi

Sound more like a hardware (speaker) issue as an software (sound driver) issue.
So in my opinion only the ASP in your country could be helpful.

I think the faulty speaker must be replaced?

Answer:Inspiron 15 5559 keep rebooting

Hi JJABAT,
What is the current OS installed on the system? Are you trying to reinstall the OS on the machine? What is the exact issue with the system if you are trying to reinstall the OS?
If the system is on Win 10 OS and does not boot into windows, provided the OS was working fine earlier, then check this article - http://dell.to/2dS9MFs
If the issue is not resolved - restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Unplug or remove the battery - try again.  If the flashing ceases, it's a bad battery. If it doesn't, it's a bad mainboard.
