Can Anyone Help Fix an Headphone Mic Issue On Windows 10 Laptop?

Question: Can Anyone Help Fix an Headphone Mic Issue On Windows 10 Laptop?

Hello,

Before I continue, I'd like to say I did not upgrade to Windows 10. I bought my laptop not even a year-ago from Best Buy with Windows 10 already installed.

A little background, I've been using my "Skullcandy Ink'd Earbud with Mic" to talk with people on both Skype and Discord using my laptop. I've had these earbuds for more than three-months and I've never had an issue with them until today. Suddenly people can't hear me, but I can hear them while my sound remains perfectly intact. I thought maybe my earbuds were broken so I tried them with three different devices, but the Mic still worked just fine. Afterwards I updated my Sound Drivers thinking that might be the issue. Yet, even after updating the problem wasn't fixed. I'm really confused as to why I can't be heard through the Mic when I plug the earbuds into my laptop. Especially, when it was working not to long ago. Has anyone else experienced this? I really need help.P.S. I used the earbuds/mic three days ago an they worked fine. The next day the mic couldn't be picked up, also it only has one plug.

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 !
ASUS X42F, laptop with combined microphone in / headphone out jack,
how can i connect both a microphone & a headphone ?

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

Hello. I've switched to SSD form default HDD and decided to install clean Windows 10 system. Everything went ok, I installed latest driver from G50-70 from the support website but when I played music on my headphones I was shocked how bad sound I had compared to previous system - vocals were really bad and backed. I looked around and decided to install separate smart audio app which is bundled with different driver (http://support.lenovo.com/pl/pl/downloads/ds038344) and it's ok now - I've got same sound quality as before. Why don't you feature this app with G50-70 drivers??? It's not user friendly.

Question: Headphone issue

Hi Guys,

I have 2 JBL speakers hooked up to my desk top (windows 7) and they work fine, however when I plug the headphones in (front of the speaker) I do not get any sound through the headphones.

If I press the jack plug in 1/2 way I get sound through the headphones however it also continues through the speakers.

I have checked the speaker setting though realtek and control panel and everything seems good.

I have also tried a couple of sets of headphones including top of the range AKG's and it makes no difference, so not sure why I am having this trouble.

Thanks in advance for you help guys it is much appreciated.

ps I have spent 1/2 hour trying to find the answer in the forum with no luck so apologizes if this questions is posted somewhere else as I could not find it.
Ps

This sounds (pardon the pun) more like a hardware problem with the speaker jack. Have you attempted to plug the headphones into your sound card's or onboard audio's headphone jack?

Also, another shot: I had the same symptoms once (mine are Boston Acoustics) - the headphones would not work when plugged into the master desktop speaker until I rebooted. Have you restarted your machine lately?

Question: Headphone Issue

I recently was forced to reformat a relatively new laptop.  After the reformat, my speakers work fine.  When I plug my headphones in, the computer recognizes them.  I can test them in control panel and hear the test in my headphones.  But that's it, I hear absolutely nothing else with my headphones.  Any ideas?

Answer:Headphone Issue

first, get yourself another working pair of headphones and connect to your computer and test. let us know how it goes.it is probably something wrong with your current headphones IF your computer's speakers and sound card are good and in working order.And what brand is the headphones you use and how old are they?

I purchased my s10-3t about 2 weeks ago, and upgraded to windows 7 home premium about a week ago. A few days ago I started having the following problem: After some amount of time using the headphones after a typical boot up (could be 5 mins, half an hour, an hour, or more), the headphones will suddenly stop playing music or whatever, and instead produce really loud static noise. I am certain it is not the headphone's fault because they still work on other music devices and this problem happens with other headphones too. On a few occasions I could still hear the sound it's supposed to play but really really quietly (and still drowned out by the really loud static noise). Also, the volume of the static does not change if you change the volume level. When this problem happens, the speakers will work fine, except they will sometimes be "unsure" whether the headphones are plugged in. The speakers may or may not produce sound...sometimes they'll only produce sound if the headhpones are plugged in half way. I am not too concerned about the speakers - I don't use them anyway. I just want my headphones to work again. The only way I have found to correct this is to reboot my computer (which always works to fix the problem), but I don't want to have to keep doing this. Thanks

Hi, I have a problem
I am in a CS CAL Team and the new CAL season is starting up. That means late night games, and where late night games come in comes the issue of being quite for the rest of the house while they try to sleep. SO! I plug in my headphones... but they don't work all I can hear is a very faint incoherent fuzz.

I am running on XP Home, and got a Creative SB Live! Series (WDM) card running on Version 5.1.2603.0. I was wondering if there is some way to fix this issue. If it is my crap old soundcard? the headphones? or what?

Thanks

Answer:XPS-13 9360 Headphone Issue

rjbhayesHeadphones only recognized if plugged in on boot.
That was an issue on the XPS 9350 and 9550 models. Many owners reported it was fixed by having the audio port circuit board replaced. (Your model might or might not have that part). Your post is the first one I have seen about the problem on an XPS 9360.
rjbhayesLatest issue
That Realtek driver 6.0.1.8105 just came out May 3rd, so if the problem exists from that date I would say try "roll back" driver and see if the previous driver works okay. 
Turn off Windows Update, then
1. Open the Device Manager.2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers"3. Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio" to open the context menu.4. Click Properties.5. Click the Driver tab at the top.6. Click Rollback Driver.
If Win10 Home does not allow for turning off Update, then disconnect from internet, but if Update is on it might re-install the newer driver when connected again.

The laptop doesn't register headphones frequently- occasionally 'unplugs' randomly, or if they're moved/knocked a little. I've tried updating the audio drivers and using different headphones and that's not helped at all. I figure it's probably a hardware issue and I need to send it off to be fixed, but I'd rather avoid having to do that if I could.

I just got my brand new XPS 15 and this thing screams. I'm impressed at how quickly this machine processes my videos on Premier Pro. However, right out of the box, I'm having a major issue with the headphone jack. 
Upon inserting any set of headphones, I get, I would say 35% sound on the right channel. The left channel sounds fine. The fix is either to wiggle the headphone jack until the sound comes through. Or, to press down hard next to the left Ctrl and Shift keys. 
I've tried both the Audio Technica ATH-M70x and Creative Aurvanas, and both have the same issue. Is this new laptop destined for a new motherboard, already? I can't imagine this would be a driver issue.

I SOLVED this in my reply below!

Hi everyone,

I have updated my Compaq Presario V3030CA to Windows 7 Home Premium and only since then I have not been able to use my headphone jack for audio.

I have read many threads on this issue in this forum and elsewhere on the Internet, tried several of the solutions offered but to no avail...

As with many others, I do get sound through the laptop speakers. When I plug in my (perfectly working) pair of headphones, the sound on the speakers does not turn off and of course I am not getting anything in my headphones.

Here is what I see when I go to the Control Panel/Sound. In Playback, I get Speakers - High Definition Audio Device - Default Device. Clicking on its Properties I see the High Definition Audio Device driver is from Microsoft. I have tried to disable, uninstal, update this driver but to no avail. I have also tried to replace it with other drivers recommended in different forums (including from the Compaq website) but that also did not work.

Back in the Playback window, I see the Digital Audio (S/PDIF) icon with Ready state. There is no Headphones icon even when I right click and Show Disabled Devices.

In the Recording pane, the Line in icon shows a status of Not Plugged in with a red arrow pointing downwards.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Mike

I uninstalled the W7 audio drivers. I tried again to download the audio driver from Compaq (Select software and drivers Compaq Presario V3000 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)) but this time while I reinstalled that driver, I noticed that W7 was reinstalling its own drivers b/f the Compaq driver could be installed. So when the Compaq driver installation paused to ask me a question, I went back in Control Panel/Sound to again uninstall the W7 audio driver. I went back to the Compaq driver installation, let it finished and my headphones are now working!!!!!

Have been having this problem for a while now.

Every so often, the headhphone jack on my laptop just stops working after hours and hours of the laptop being on.

The built-in speakers of the laptop work fine. What happens is that while the computer is in use (after some random amount of time), any hardware plugged into the headphone jack of the laptop will not playback sound. This includes headphones, speakers and the like. The sound device manager in control panel shows sound being output, and if the headphones/speakers are disconnected, the audio plays fine on the built-in speakers on the laptop.

I haven't been able to figure out what exactly causes this problem. I have tried resinstalling the driver several times. I am 100% sure it isn't the headphones of the speakers that I use as I use these speakers and headphones on many other devices (phone, tablet etc.)

The only way that this issue gets fixed is if the computer is shut down and then rebooted (a restart doesn't work, the computer has to literally lose power for the problem to be fixed).

It seems very intermittent and I'm not sure how to approach this problem

Any ideas?

Answer:Headphone Jack on Laptop Stops Working Until Laptop is Powered Off

One idea would be a look the power plan in use. If you are running with the default Balanced power plan you may be seeing that nterfere by conserving battery power temporarily turning the audio off being a constant drain. Another thought could be a result of the onboard audio chip itself getting too warm where the hardware protection circuit will then come in and deactivate all sound. That is usually seen as far as the cpu temp as well as other major components. The audio being onboard would also be monitored by the bios not so much by Windows.

The other possible cause of losing sound would be the headphone jack or the board end having a cold solder point getting warm and expanding just enough to break the connection until cooled off. The complete shutdown of power would tend to suggest a temp or regulation issue where either the power plan or temp monitoring would have to be watched. And one more thing would be setting the laptop on a fan cooled stand or effective notebook cooling pad to draw heat away from the unit if you are not already using one. Laptops are known to get quite warm with extended use since everything is packed into a tight space with the typical serious lack of air flow unlike the usual desktop with front, rear, and side or top case fans in use if not water cooled.

Hello, Earlier today the tip of my 3.5mm headphones snapped off and is stuck into my headphone jack.  I was wondering if anyone knew how to disable the bypass to headphones so I can use the regular speakers? And how to remove the piece that is lodged in the jack.  I've tried putting epoxy on the end of a toothpick but that didn't work.   I took apart my computer hoping that the jack was accessible from the other side but only got to where the magnisium cage covers it completely. Any help would be appreciated. Oops looks like I posted this in the wrong topic... I forgot that I don't have a T series anymore

I've pulled many of these out over the years, usually with a very thin pair of tweezers works best.   Unfortunantely, since it is lodged into the connector it is unlikely that even manually switching the output device in the multimedia settings would fix the issue.

My X220 doesn't seem to detect headphones properly.  Sound comes out of them instead of the internal speakers, but the audio mixer still shows the device connected as "speakers."  My old laptop could detect when headphones are plugged in and kept separate volume levels for headphones vs internal speakers, should the X220 be able to do this? I'm running Windows 7 on an i5-2520M with 8GB RAM.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:X220 Headphone Detection issue

Actually this made me curious, so I checked out my X220, and indeed it worked like you described. However, I found a way to change that to provide the effect you're looking for. In Control Panel, click the Smart Audio icon. This will bring up the Smart Audio panel. Click Audio Director, one of the bottom icons. This brings up two choices, Classic & Multi-Stream. Changing to Multi-Stream recognizes the headphones when plugged in, and indeed maintains a different volume level. Hope that works for you!

Hello there,

The headphone jack on my laptop broke some time ago, so I had to buy a USB replacement jack. Under Windows XP this worked brilliantly, but since I've upgraded to Windows 7 (Home Premium, 32bit) I've been experiencing problems: namely, I have no control over the volume. Whether the volume is all the way up or just above zero, the sound is blaringly loud through the headphones. (I can still Mute the volume.) I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the jack via the Device Manager, but I haven't had any success. Help?

USB headsets' volumes are controlled by Windows via the drivers for said headset. IF the drivers are not installed or improperly installed, you may have a tough time doing anything with it.

Some headsets also have volume controls in-line on the cord. Is this the case for you?

What headset do you have?

Also check your device manager under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers. If your headset is actually listed there like it should be, it should not have any ! or ? symbols on it as well.

Hello. Download and install a fresh copy of the Realtek audio driver. If doing that doesn't fix the problem, switch to the windows native 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" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked .7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, sometimes you have to restart, sometimes not.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If the headphones still don't work after doing that, it is because of hardware failure.

Hello, problem is when I plug in my Apple headphones into my laptop the left earbud doesn't work unless I pressure the jack upwards with my finger, if I let it go it stops working again. So only the right earbud works on its own. I have downloaded and reinstalled the latest audio driver for my computer and the same problem persists.  Driver I'm using: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/Audio/Audio_Realtek_v6.0.1.7027_W81x64_A.zip?acerid=6... This only started to happen just recently when I let my younger cousins play on my laptop, before it was just fine. Maybe they damaged my audio port in some way? If so is there a DIY solution to this? My warranty is up and I don't want to pay probably $50 to fix a small audio issue. I did not download anything else that modified my audio as far as I know. Any help is appreciated. EDIT: This is not a problem with the earphones, they work perfectly fine with my phone and other devices.

Sometimes the audio will work fine, during these times I am happy with it.When playing audio over the main speakers with nothing in the audio jack, it will think there is something in the audio jack and route the audio there, so I cant hear anything. I can tell this is happening because the system volume control will now display the headphone level. It will also flicker between the speakers and headphone audio levels which is the only reason I noticed this.When the headphones are in, they tend to work more often than the main speaker. However it will also think that the headphones are not plugged in and switch back to the main speakers.Its common for it to switch between states rapidly and repeatedly for several seconds. The problem should not be related to the headphones I am using. I use 3 different pairs, all of which use the headphone jack and not USB (never tried usb or bluetooth audio actually). For some reason touching the case seems to matter.

Hi,
Anyone else with the XPS 15 9550 have problems with headphones / internal speakers not working correctly?
On booting the PC without any headphones, the speakers work. However headphones do not work if inserted.  On removing the headphones, the speakers then cease to work.
However if booting the PC with headphones inserted, the headphones do work.  On removing them, the speakers do not work.  The headphones do not work if reinserted.
Both these scenarios are fixed by rebooting the PC.
Windows 10 and all drivers - including audio and BIOS - are up to date as of 17/11/5.
This issue seems similar to the one described in:

Does anyone else have the same problem?

Answer:XPS 9550 Headphone / audio issue

I have the same problem. Here's the steps I took to fix the issue on my computer (no guarantees this works for everyone!)
1. Updated audio drivers to latest (Audio_Driver_37Y88_WN32_6.0.1.7628_A03.EXE)
2. Updated BIOS to latest (XPS_9550_1.1.19.exe)
3. Restart
4. Open the startup manager(Esc+Shift+Ctrl, navigate to startup tab)
5. Disable "HD Audio Background Process" and "Waves MAXXaudio Service Application"
6. Enable "Realtek HD Audio Manager" if not already enabled
7. Restart 
After restarting plugging and unplugging headphones work correctly. Hope this helps!

Hey, I have a flex 14 ideaPad and up until recently everything's been running smoothly audio-wise (when headphones were and were not plugged in), except for randomly a couple of days ago when I plugged headphones into the jack and no sound came through either the headphones or the speakers, although the headphones were detected by the laptop. When I unplugged them sound would come through the speakers again. I tried again with a different set of headphones but the problem reoccurred which lead me to believe the problem is with the laptop, after searching for solutions online I decided to delete and then reinstall the audio drive (Realtech HD Audio Manager). This fixed the problem for a couple of days but now the same problem has returned. I am confused as to whether this is a hardware/software based problem as when I reinstalled the driver it did solve the problem so it couldn't really be hardware related. Would anyone know what the problem is? Should I just keep on deleting and reinstalling the driver? Again the headphones are detected by the laptop, they do not appear as their own playback device though (is this always the case?) Thanks, Tiernan

Answer:Flex 14 Headphone Jack/Audio Issue

The Realtek configuration on the Flex has Windows only show a single, common device for all the audio outputs.
 
Here's the latest Realtek driver. If the issue persists after, I would recommend a warranty call.

I'm guessing that it's probably just a compatibility issue... or just how it is, but I'm curious:

I updated my laptop from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro a while back. It started out as just a minor inconvenience, but it's getting to be very annoying. When I plug in my external speakers (via the headphone jack) or my headphones, Windows doesn't automatically switch the sound output to the headphone jack. I have to manually switch it ("Manage Audio Devices"). The same is true for the reverse, when I unplug my headphones.

Is there any way around this, or is it likely an issue with the compatibility of my sound card?

Please and thank you!

Answer:Headphone jack/on board speaker issue

Do you have the correct Windows 7 drivers for your Audio system? The XP drivers are not compatible and you need at a minimum Vista drivers as Vista and Windows 7 handle sound functions differently than XP.

On most newer "HD Audio" systems the jack is "auto sensing" and switches "logically". On many older PC systems that is a mechanical function with the jack.

x220tWindows 7 Professional I just got a new motherboard, and now my Thinkpad will does not detect headphones.  When I plug headphones in the jack, no sound comes through the headphones, and sound continues to stream through the built-in speakers. Things I've tried:- I updated the drivers and the problem persists- I checked the SmartAudio settings, including toggling between the classic and multi-stream modes.- I opened the box to check the obvious connections -- nothing obvious appears to be disconnected, but I'm not an expert, so I wouldn't know how to check soldering or the like. Other notes:- There is a USB port next to the headphone jack, which works fine.  - When I plug in the headphones, I can hear the static sound that results from a cable making it's connection.  This tells me that there is power going to the headphone pins.- I've tried both regular 1/8 in XLR stereo headphones and the kind with a built-in microphone, with the same results each time. At this point, I think it is probably a hardware issue, but I really don't want to put my work machine back in the shop again, so if anyone has an idea, I would love to hear it. Thanks!Scott

Hello, I recently bought a Flex 2-14 with Windows 8.1 installed and upgraded it to Windows 10 (Education Version). I haven't tried the sound on the 8.1 system - directly upgraded to Windows 10.Symptoms:When I plug in headphones, the notebook doesn't recognize them. When I unmute/mute using the F1 keys sound comes through the headphone - terrible quality, though. When I change the volume using the F2/F3 keys that switches it back to the loud speakers and so on.It seems to me that the laptop doesn't recognize the headphones at all. When I look into the sound devices in the taskbar, there aren't any headphones listed.Failed attempts to solve the problem:Updating the drivers from the Lenovo website.Updating drivers from Realtek directly.Sleeping/waking the notebook.Turning off the multichannel option with the Realtek HD Audio-Manager.I think that's pretty much all I've tried so far.Most of the times the problem just stayed the same. Sometimes it wouldn't switch back to the speaker when pressing the F1/F2/F3 keys, but that is all that my attempts changed so far.I'm thankful for any hints!

 I have an HP Probook 450 G1. I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit). I have the latest audio drivers (Intel HD audio). I usually use a headset with microphone, but suddenly it doesnt work. This is the second time this has happened, now 2 days in a row. The FIRST time audio would play out of my system, but not my headphones while plugged in. This time, while plugged in, audio does not play in my headphones, or from my system's speakers. Last time repeatedly juggling the same options seemed to eventually work. But this time....it isn't.  Furthermore, no settings have changed. I do not know what is causing the problem, or what the solution is. What SHOULD happen is that sound should play from my onboard speakers, and sound be recorded from the onboard microphone. When I plug in using 3.5 jack) headphones or microphone those devices should take over. http://i.imgur.com/tT5a4VX.jpg

Okay this is a VERY weird thing, and might be pretty confusing, I'll do my best to explain it clearly.

I have a headset w/ microphone (logitech) for voice chatting online. When its plugged all the way in I can't hear anything, I have to back it out slightly then I can hear but the connection is not good because it's not"clicked' in and I have to hold it in the right place, so not a good solution.

I CAN hear out of it when listening to a song with it all the way in so i thought it was a stereo/mono issue. I.e. can't hear when listening to a 'sound recorder' file or yahoo voice chat but CAN hear when llistening to music.

I also have another set of headphones without a mic for listening on my mp3 player. These headphones DO WORK for BOTH types of files. The plugs are EXACTLY the same, both have two black bands, ( i.e. both are stereo headphones) i have even measured the two plugs and spacing of the black bands, bboth EXACTLY the same.

And I've also tried this on more than one PC, my laptop and desktop and it's the same on both machines.

One other thing is that the headphone/mic set DID work initially but then the problem started later and i discovered that pulling the plug out slightly made it work. And now lots of head scratching later i'm completely dumbfounded by this.

has anyone else experienced this or have any idea what is causing this? I rather not have to buy a new headphone/mic set.

thanks in advance!

Hi Guys, I got a brand new U160 today and love it, but there's a loud static hiss coming from my headphones when plugged into the headphone jack.  I'm sure it's not an issue with my headphones itself because there's no hiss with other laptops or ipods.  This hiss is present regardless of the volume level and is still there even when on mute. Can someone please help me out here?  Is it simply a matter of re-installing the drivers?  The default audio drivers are Realtek 6.0.1.6093 which is the latest. Thanks in advance.

Just picked up my Yoga 2 Pro from best buy. Updated all drivers and BIOS, and the yellow screen issue does seem to be fixed.

When I restart the computer it works fine.   Also, I have a USB 3.0 external HDD. I use this harddrive without any issues on my Lenovo Y400 using the USB 3.0 port.  The external HDD is a Rosewill RX-358 V2 Silver.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read this & hopefully help me resolve my issue. May the records state that I'm not the most experienced with computer hardware, but I'm interested in it and have been learning through my friends.
That aside, I recently got a Logitech G230 Stereo Gaming Headset. I've been plugging it into the audio/microphone jacks in the rear of my tower, and they've worked fine.
// Really great headset, by the way; very comfortable and I have no complaints about it as of yet.
Recently, upon cleaning out my tower, I found that there are audio/microphone jacks on the front panel. Who knew? I never really explored my computer tower so this was a neat find for me. I decided to see if my headset would work through them, and lo and behold, the feedback volume was significantly lower than it was in the rear jacks. To my dismay, I couldn't find out why this was, and Google ceased to give me the solution I desired.
Help is welcomed with open arms!

Answer:Front Panel Headphone Jack - Poor feedback issue

I'm not sure of what you are saying. Are you saying the sound volume in the headset is lower than it is plugging into the rear Green speaker jack?

There can be a sound level difference, depending on the impedance of the particular headset. The Green speaker jack on the rear is designed to feed a speaker system which will have a different impedance than headsets. Thus there can be a difference in the sound level.

Dell does not list the technical impedance specs for this model so I can't say for sure what the Speaker and Headphone jack impedances are.

After installing windows 8, there's no sound from my speaker. Sound only works with earphones. What should I do?

**UPDATE**
I went to the asus website and update the audio driver, it partially works now. The sound is there, but I keep getting error message about SRS audio cannot be found. I go to the add/remove program and saw two programs have been installed:
-Realtek High Definition Audio Driver
-SRS audio contro panel

I uninstall the SRS audio control panel and it seems the error message is gone. But I hope I didn't corrupt anything.

I've searched the forum as best I could and didn't find this issue being addressed. So, sometimes I listen to music with the headphones or even after a Skype call, I leave the headphone jack plugged in. If I put the laptop to sleep and wake it back up, unplugging the headphones will not return my sound setting back to the integrated speakers; I can only hear any sound if I plug the headphones back. I tried logging off and on again: no change. I tried to disable and re-enable "Realtek High Definition Audio" in Device Manager: no change. Uninstalling and re-installing it wouldn't be a proper solution if it had to be done all the time. The only thing that returns it back to normal is turning it off and on again... typical I.T. solution. Was there a driver update to fix this? Speaking of driver updates, I assume I can't find any BIOS update or any driver updates for the ideaPad due to the Sandy Bridge recall?? UPDATE: Sorry... found the consumer support lenovo sub domain site which is different from the IBM one... argh..

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 bought headphones to hook into the headphone (mint green) output on my laptop running Windows XP SP3, but it dosent work. In the past when ever I'd plug headphones into the mint green on the laptop the audio playing would cease outputing via the imbedded laptop speakers and begin to play exclusively through the headphones. Now, however, the headphones don't receive audio when they're plugged in to the headphones jack and the laptop speakers continue to have the audio output as if no headphones were plugged in at all, when for example, I am playing an MP3 via Windows Media Player.

What's wrong here? What settings or hardware will I need to look at?
Thanks for the help
 

Answer:No headphone audio output in laptop, XP

It doesn't sound like a settings problem since the internal speakers are disconnected mechanically inside the jack when something is plugged in. Carefully compare the jacks that work on the speakers to the one that doesn't. Is it shorter at all, or are the insulators on the jack perfectly aligned?

Few days ago the sound from my headphone jack became weird, it's distant and distorted, when I hold the audio cable a certain way in the port its all good and all the sound comes through, also if I unplug my headphones, sound comes through the speakers as normal.
The Headphones are fine (I tried on other devices and used different headphones on my computer). I thought "Oh the Audio Jack is stuffed.
Today I plugged my headphones into my Audio Mixer which connects to the Laptop via USB but its the same issue. Like exactly the same, sound is distant and distorted unless I hold the Cable (from the Headphones) in a certain way in the port.
I played an audio file from a skype convo and THAT sounded fine without any messing around with the Audio Jack.
The Windows "Test" for sound (you know the little chime thing), also works fine.

I have a T500 - 2081CTO, and in the last week or less, the headphone jack has stopped working. There was a windows update recently so I'm assuming that's the culprit. I typically let it do it's auto-update thing without paying much attention, so I don't know what exactly changed or why it would kill the headphone jack. I've tried looking for Conextant drivers, but those don't seem to have changed since 2011. Win8 and the T500 has always been a bit flaky, but this at least has always worked. How can I test that it's the software and not a hardware issue? And if it is software related, what do I need to fix it?

Following the suggestion of my beloved brother, I stepped back through restore points and found one 2 weeks ago where sound still works. Since that time, I had installed a Java Dev Kit, SVN, redistributable C++, pando media booster, and Firefox. I'm leaning towards PMB being the culprit, but it's hard to say exactly. Windows critical updates (the first step back) didn't change anything.

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.

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".

I use headphones for medical transcription. Today, they fell off the table after I took them off, and pulled at the headphone jack. Now, I can only hear sound from the headphones, but not from the laptop speakers. Is there a way to take apart the laptop in order to see if the headphone jack is cracked, or if it moved? If I plug in the headphone jack and jiggle it I can get sound from my laptop speakers, but once I take the headphone connector out of the jack, all sound is gone again from the laptop speakers. My laptop is still under warranty, but we don't want to send it out for repair unless it is absolutely necessary. Please help us -we would like to be able to fix this problem ourselves as money is short, and I need the laptop to be here so I can do my medical transcription. Thanks!

Hi.

I've recently bought a laptop online with no OS installed on it. I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate Edition and downloaded all drivers from the manufactures website. Everything works fine except there is no audio coming through the headphone jack or built-in speakers. I have spent majority of today looking online for answers on how to fix this issue and have found nothing that works.

The laptop model is a HP Pavillion dv6-1007tx.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: When I plug in a HDMI cable to the laptop, sound comes through my TV.
 

Answer:No sound through headphone jack or laptop speakers

Do you see any yellow (!) in the device manager? Are you sure you have installed the proper audio driver for Windows 7 64 or 32 bit?

Hi, I've had my laptop almost a full year and just a few days ago, I found the headphone port would not take my headphone jack in all the way. I used to just plug it in and it worked. Then over this last weekend, I tried plugging in my earbuds and the port would just push it back out. I could hold the jack in with my hand and get audio, though that's becoming more difficult. I think the problem is with the port and not the jack because I can plug the same jack into my mobile phone and it seats. I also tried the same thing with my old headset and the port would push it back out. Plug it into my mobilephone and the jack snaps in like it's supposed to. Is there a way to check if the port is out of alignment? If so could it be re-aligned or do I have to replace it? Thanks, John  H.

Just inside the headphone and mic ports, you should be able to see a black plastic or annular ring. This ring material usually holds the plug in place by friction against the slightly larger metal ring at the base of the plug's pin. This black annular ring might've dropped out of the port and rolled on the floor somewhere. 8^) Jack E/NJ

Answer:Laptop - Can't Use HDMI and Headphone Jacks At The Same Time

You'd have to disable the hdmi sound and enable the built in sound device. hdmi uses it's own sound device. To enable both you might need to run some second party app to tunnel one to the next. I'd bet it could be done but I haven't read how to do that.A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

I usually listen to music with speakers through the headphone jack. When I unplug the speakers, the music plays through the stock laptop speakers like it is supposed to do.

However, all of a sudden, the sound has only worked through these external speakers. It plays fine through the headphone jack, but when I unplug the speakers, the laptop speakers do not work.

I have restored the computer to an earlier point that I know they were working, but still nothing.

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron E1705.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I'm John and I'm having major problems here. I have been using a laptop for awhile and it's been working great. I have been using my pair of headphones for my laptop and they've been working great as well. However, after a bit, I noticed that the audio was not working really good. I thought it was the headphones until I tried more pairs, they did the same thing. The problem is that when I'm listening to a song, one part of the audio I can hear clearly, but the rest (the majority of the song) is either faint or muffled.

This happens when I put the headphone jack all the way in the output. When I take it out some, the majority of the song audio I can hear clearly, but the other parts I can barely hear. This really annoys me, and it really bothers me. Is their any professional or half-assed way to fix this? My headphones were loud and clear before, but now (out of nowhere) I can't hear 100% of anything I listen to. Can I get any help? I'd appreciate it greatly! This happened randomly and I'd like some answers, I have good hopes in replies!

When the headphone jack is plugged / unplugged the taskbar and start menu become unresponsive for a moment (between 30 seconds to 5 minutes at times).   I get a notification that it was plugged/unplugged by B&O window right away, then taskbar etc becomes frozen for a while, then a second notification comes up telling me it was plugged/unplugged again then its ok until i use audio jack again. Ive seen this problem on several forum posts, some ppl had luck making a new user account, some needed to wipe the whole drive and reinstall. But reintalling the drivers doesnt seem to work as I and several others tried this with not results. If anyone has a solution for this problem it would be much appreciated. thanks.

Like the headline says, I have a problem with sound on my Toshiba laptop (model is Satellite L755-S5110). Sound just randomly switches to headphones, even though they aren't connected. The sound just stops playing from the speakers, and when I plug in headphones, it plays normaly through headphones, and works fine while using them, but when I unplug headphones, the sound then plays from speakers for some time and then again just stops on its own and if I plug headphones again, it plays through them.
First, I thought it was some driver issue with win 10, so I did clean install of windows 7 (it was first installed when I bought my laptop), then again installed all the required drivers from the toshiba site (I checked in the device manager couple of times if all audio drivers were up to date, tried reinstalling/installing again), and the exact same problem remained. I also tried reinstalling audio driver provided from toshiba site, and used microsoft audio driver, and again the same problem.
Also, for example, when the sound stops playing from speakers, i just open Playback devices (where my default speakers device is listed), and the sound starts playing again through speakers (didnt change anything there, just opened it...)
I'd really appreciate if someone could help me with this issue, since I've already tried everything I could think of, and none worked yet.

Could you help me with the setup please?

Answer:Use external speakers in place of headphone and Laptop's microphone

Short answer, no. Because of the feedback problems, most users use a separate combination headset/mic to minimize feedback problems. Otherwise you will have to manually change things each time you speak or listen.

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.
