T530 Speakers have stopped working, headphones still working, tiny small popping / clicking

Question: T530 Speakers have stopped working, headphones still working, tiny small popping / clicking

New T530Speakers and Headphones were working fine. I have installed some codecs for VLC (don't think this would affect things) The speakers stopped working, but if you press your ear to the machine, you can hear some tiny clicks / pops when you try to play audio/video (itunes, VLC etc.) Checked Drivers, Sound Mixer, etc. All say the sound is on full.Volume Control Options show Speaker/HP 'realtek High Definition Audio' I tried updating the Sound Drivers. I rolled back the drivers, I unistalled the drivers.Downloaded the drivers from Lenovo, tried Microsoft. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Answer: T530 Speakers have stopped working, headphones still working, tiny small popping / clicking

Not really sure about this, but it sounds like the audio port's mechanical shunt is stuck or broken off. That is an age old way of turning off speakers when a headphone or external speaker jack is inserted. The jack pushes a small metal shunt over that opens the internal speakers' circuit. When the jack is withdrawn, that small shunt is supposed to return to the original position that lets internal speakers function again. If that shunt is stuck or broken, the internal speakers could remain blocked after an external jack is removed. This is not a new problem, but it is not a common problem. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/No-sound-from-internal-speakers-only-from-h...

Something weird is happening.
I was away from home 14 days, and I just came back. I started some music in youtube from my desktop and the speakers sounds weird now, for no reason at all. I really doubt my son touched my computer, but still. Tried checking the configurations I dont see anything wrong, so I thought that maybe the speakers were damaged. So I went to my laptop and I connect my USB headphones and I hear music with no vocals or very very low vocals, so I just try playing with the settings now I can hear vocals and music but weird. So I tried uninstalling the driver and installing again, and I get the same result.

I don't really know if its coincidence but it's really weird. I'm more worried about my headphones since are almost new (Genius hs-04U).

THANKS A LOT

Best Regards
 

Answer:Speakers and Headphones stopped working

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

Is really annoying! THANKS!

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

EDIT: Speakers were half disconnected from the bass, amazing how I didn't checked that before LMAO :$... But no luck with the heapdhones.

Hello! I'm having an issue with the sound on my computer. I have an emachine that runs Vista, but I don't know the specs.

I installed updates on it this morning, and since then I haven't been able to play any sounds through my speakers or through headphones.
When I check my sound devices, it says "Line 1, Live! Cam Virtual, Working", which to me is odd because my webcam certainly doesn't play sound, and it isn't even plugged in.
The only other device listed says "NVIDIA HDMI Output, NVIDIA HDMI Audio, Not plugged in" and I think those are my speakers, and if so they actually are plugged in.

I have checked to make sure nothing is muted, my speakers are on and plugged in, I did unplug and replug a few times, I restarted, etc, and still nothing.

Here's a screen cap:



Thanks a lot :)

Answer:Speakers and headphones stopped working

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

Ok guys this problem happened last march/april ish and I tried a number of things at the time to fix the issue but with no luck. I just got done working out of state for the summer and did not have my pc with me so I'm trying to have another go at fixing the problem. Summary of the issue- no problems ever with sound until one day it just stopped working. Both headphones and speakers wouldn't work even if they were plugged in. I wasn't getting any "no audio devices detected" kinds of errors or anything like that. So I tried reinstalling the realtek HD audio drivers (i was just using onboard sound at the time) and no luck. I also tried doing a few system restores to before the issue and that didn't do anything either. Finally I bought a pci-e sound card, a sounblaster cause thats all the local best buy had, installed that and still no luck with either speakers or headphones. Today I tried removing the sound card and using on board audio and still no luck. Audio device manager will recognize that I plug in my headphones into either the front speaker jack or the one on the back but just doesn't produce sound. I even opened up the pc and looked at the connections on the mobo to make sure the ones for audio hadn't come lose and that doesn't seem to be the issue either. Please any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance

Answer:sound stopped working completely, headphones and speakers

Post a screenshot of the Device Manager, Sound section, for starters. I'll try to help you.

When you had the SoundBlaster installed, you need to disable the integrated (Realtek) audio so there are no conflicts. Also, you would need to disconnect the front panel headset/mic connection to the motherboard and connect it to the SoundBlaster to have the front panel jacks work. The SoundBlaster would have needed to be set as the default playback device, instead of Realtek if it was still enabled.

Hi there guys, first post here so please do mind I'm a newbie

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

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

Immediately I quit CS:GO and tried to fix the problem by reinstalling the drivers of the sound card. I deleted the Realtek HD Audio Manager and reinstalled it again. Doesn't work. I deleted it again and left only the default drivers that Windows installs to run, doesn't help either. I installed previous versions of the Realtek HD Audio Manager, but didn't help. I even restored the whole Windows... without effect. I tried putting the Headphones as a default device, and it didn't work either. Updated the DirectX 12 to the latest possible version, didn't work. I spent at least 4 hours by searching all kinds of forums and threads and tried everything possible, again without any effects.

Answer:Headphones stopped working without reason, but speakers work perfectly

Open Device Manager, remove driver and device for your sound chipset, open up System in Control Panel, Click on Advanced System Settings to open System Properties, Click on Hardware tab, click on Device installation settings, change to no to not allow Windows to automatically install driver and device when you reboot, click ok, reboot, log in, install the correct driver for that device off of a USB stick by running the .exe file for it. Then reboot and everything should be back to normal.

It all started some weeks ago,atleast once in a day I would hear some bopping sound from my right speaker.When it started I would restart the computer and it would go away.but two days ago,it started then suddenly my speakers stopped working.I tried connecting my headphones there was still no sound.In just some time after the speakers went mute,i smelt something burning.i suspected it was my speaker so I smelt its location and surely the burning scent was coming from there.Now I am not really sure if my speakers burnt up or its something to do with the drivers.What can I do ? and if my speakers are really burnt,where can I get other ones specifically for my dell inspiron 3542 ? I have tried searching for them here on the official dell website but I don't seem to find them.

Hi, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I had a set of GE 2.1 speakers working well with my Sony Vaio for about a year. Recently the sound started to go in & out, I had to move the wire around a lot and tape it or hold it in a certain spot to get them to work. Then one day they stopped working altogether. Assuming it was the speakers, I went and bought a new set from Best Buy. Took them home, plugged them in... and nothing, nothing at all. So I tried the OLD speakers in another desktop computer, and they worked perfectly.

So I assumed my headphone jack was broken and was going to go about trying to get a new piece and solder it and all that, but then I'm sitting here and just realized my headphones work perfectly.

What's wrong? How come the headphones work, but 2 pairs of external speakers don't?

Thanks so much

Jillian

My laptop's speakers aren't working at all, and when my headphones are plugged in only the right side works. The only way I can hear out of both sides of them is if I pull the jack halfway out, like you would with faulty headphones. But there's nothing wrong with the headphones and I've tried various different ones. The speakers themselves aren't working at all despite the settings telling me they are. And yes, I've tried turning it on and off and looking for updates but nothing seems to be working.
Please help!

Hey @sheba005,  Thanks for posting in the HP Support Forum.  I see that your HP Pavilion g6-1235so Notebook PC's speakers are no longer working since upgrading to Windows 10. I would like to assist. I have some suggestions that might help.  What's most likely causing the issue is the fact that there are no HP-tested Windows 10 drivers for your PC. Having said that, it's worth running through the recommended steps in the following troubleshooting guide: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-g6-1200-Notebook-PC-series/5145704/model/5186697/doc... Let me know if this restores sound to your speakers.

I can listen to music,but i use the headphones to listen to Binaural beats and i dont want the sound to be distorted by the speakers.Actually i dont even now if the speakers as output distorted the sound,but i think it will be better if its set to headphones.

Answer:Headphones working as speakers

If the case does not the required "HD Audio" connector for the front panel headset/mic connections, you can buy a separate I/O panel that will have the correct connections. That may be your best option.

Hello, just to let you know that after some of the recent updates the pinch to zoom function of the touchpad stopped working (tested with pictures, pdf, word).

Hi all,

I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser HD555 which work great, the only thing is that if I want to use them I have to disconnect my speakers (Logitech Z-2300) from the sound card (Xtremegamer) and plug the headphones into the same socket.

As my speakers are 2.1 they connect to the sound card via one cable. It appears they only work in this one particaler socket as does the headphones. I assume the others are for 5.1 and 7.1 setups.

The speakers came with a little controller for volume and power, but it also has a socket for headphones but when I tried that it didn't make a difference. My keyboard (Tarantula) also has a socket for headphones which doesn't seem to work either. Even the front of my case (P182) has a socket but not joy.

In the settings for the speakers in control panel I clicked automatically detect headphones and mute speakers on detection. I have no idea why it wont work.

Any suggestions? Its a pain in the *** having to reach the back of the pc and disconnect the speakers and plug in the headphones each time

Thanks in advance!

Whenever I turn on my computer speakers (an ordinary pair of cheap speakers that that connects to a regular audio jack in the back on my computer and is powered via a USB port) and play any media containing audio on my computer, no sound comes out of them. It doesn't matter whether or not the headphones (which plug into a speaker jack in the front of my computer) are unplugged or not. This is a new problem that I noticed for the first time yesterday.

I went to the Sound settings in my Control Panel, and selected the "Test" option for my speakers several times. The speakers clearly worked each and every time. But they still wouldn't work when I played media. I then set the speakers as my default audio device, and then they started working perfectly when I played media. But then my headphones wouldn't work, even when I turned the speakers off. They worked when I used the Test option, but no other audio would play through them.

So apparently, either my headphones or my speakers will work, depending on which one I set as my default audio device. But whichever one is not set as default will not work (except for the sounds generated by the Test option).

Does anyone know what causes this problem and how to fix it?

Answer:Speakers not working, despite headphones being unplugged.

Has this ever worked properly? or is this a problem that recently happened?

Please post a screen shot of the Sound Playback Panel and the Device Manager, Sound section.

I see that this is a pretty popular question on this forum by searching, but none of those methods are really working for me.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 that I think I have a SigmaTel Audio system (I'm not the best with computers, but I think it does). I use Microsoft XP.

This problem started a few months ago when I had my computer plugged into a TV through both VGA and headphone jack. Somehow the headphone male part got bent when it was in and when I unplugged it the internal speakers no longer worked, but headphones and external speakers work fine. I've searched the internet for a while for ways to fix it over the last month or so, but couldn't find anything that actually worked. This wouldn't really be a problem, but I move my laptop around a lot and live in a college dorm room and it's tough to have speakers constantly set up and connected to my laptop.

I've read a little about problems like this and it appears that I probably hit something inside the headphone jack when the plug bent that makes the computer think headphones are always plugged in (just a guess). I've tried plugging and unplugging my headphones really fast like a million times and it hasn't worked. I've reinstalled the sound drivers, reset the computer, etc. I'm kind of out of ideas.

Hi to all..

I have been bugged down by this problem. Whenever I plug in the microphone in the jack the speakers stop. Same is the case if I use headphones.

I can't figure out if the problem is with the sound card or the with any drivers or is it something else.

I have updated the sound driver.
Checked that all nothing is muted and the volume is full.

The headphone speakers and mic work well when used on another computer, so no problem with them.

The Control Panel>Hardware and Sound> Sound> Manage> Audio Devices shows speakers and headphones both as well as the microphone. But if headphones is selected again i get no sound. Microphone doesnt work in any case.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.
The sound driver is High Definition Audio Device and its version is 6.1.7600.16385.

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

Hello, from a few days I've a problem with audio devices:  when I connect any headphones to the jack on the left side of the laptop, the sound keeps going out from the  speakers. So, I can hear from headphones and speakers in the same time.  I tried everything: update all drivers, uninstall and reinstall them, uninstal and reinstall DOLBY ADVANCED AUDIO v2 program (which is supposed to control audio on the pc), update IDT High Definition Audio CODEC (I think this is the sound card?). Nothing worked. I have two  devices available in "Audio" window:  "Speakers / headphones" and "Headphiones communications" (I'm translating from italian Windows OS). Selecting the first, speakers and headphones work simultaneously. Selecting the second, no sound comes, neither from speakers or headphones. I think I tried everything. What to do? I don't even know why this problem occurred!   Thanks for the help

Before building a new PC, I had a simple solution in having headphones (with a MIC)and my speakers working at the same time. I put a 2-1 splitter in the back of my machine, and had the speakers/headphones running off one connection.

Now, I have built a fancy new system, which has headphone (+ MIC) jacks at the front of the case (which I connected onto the motherboard via the Digital Audio Connector). So now I only have my speakers connected in the rear, and have plugged in the headphones into the front of the case.

My problem is that I have not been able to configure RealTek (using the latest 2.53) software that when I speak to someone in Skype, so that I can hear them both on speakers and the headphones at the same time. It has to be either hearing the other party via speakers or headphones.

In the advanced settings of RealTek, I have selected:

(*) Make Front and Rear output devices play back different audio streams simultaneously.

Since I always have the headphones plugged in, unless I take them out every time, my speakers would be muted unless I selected the option above.

Am I missing something? Any advise is appreciated!

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

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

Hello-hello,
I have a problem- actually for a long time, that something is really wrong with my speakers or headphones settings... or there is some problem with driver.
So the thing is I'm unable to get any sound from any media player or youtube only from headphones. If I'm in Skype, everything is okay and I can hear people only from headphones. From media players- if I plug the headphones, the music is also coming from speakers. I have tried to turn on and off the speakers, tried to disable speakers manually in settings, but nothing helps.
Also I have tried with different headphones, but the problem is same. Tried to restore my PC to previous state when everything was okay, but didn't help.
In case you need some specifications: the driver is IDT High Definition Audio CODEC, version:6.10.6319.0
The PC is HP PAvilion g6 with windows 7 and CPU is AMD A4-3300M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 1,90 GHz
Hopefully you understand the problem and my little bit bad English,

So, the title says it all. The speakers of my Acer Predator 15 (Predator G9-591) are not working and taking a look at the HD Audio Manager says that the headphones jack is plugged in, even though there is nothing plugged in. I already used high pressure air cleaner, but that didn't work. I still think there is something wrong with the port.

I re-installed my drivers (based on the drivers from the Acer site), so I have no idea what else to do.

I'm running Windows 10.

Hello all !
 
A couple of days ago my speakers and headphones stopped working when I plug them into my laptop.
 
The speakers are desktop Logtech. I only hear a buzzing noise when I plug them in.
 
When I plug the headphones in, there is complete silence.
 
Perhaps I clicked on something I should not have ?

Hello,I have lenovo laptop Y400 w/ Windows 8.1 64 bit installed. I was wondering if I could somehow modify my audio setting so that I might be able to do any or both of:I want to plug in a headphone and use both the headphone and built in speakers at the same time to play the same thing. For example when I'm playing games I want a loud game sound from the built in speakers but I also want to use the headphones to know from where the sound comes. This is usually the case when I am playing seriously.I want to plug in a headphone and use the headphone and built in speakers at the same time but for seperate applications/uses. For example, I want to play a game and listen to the game's sound from the headphone AND listen to some music from the background (as from the built in speakers), both at the same time. This is usually the case when I am chilling.I know it's a silly thing to ask for but it would really help me as I won't only use it for gaming but also for editing which would save me much time.Thank you! A few screenshots I thought might help:Spoiler (Highlight to read)Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Hi everyone! A couple of days ago I took my yoga to work and was using my headphones and since then I cannot get the speakers to work. I can still use my headphones and the sound works just fine. I had a similar issue once before, but with the microphone, not the speakers but managed to fix that myself. I updated the drivers and rebooted my laptop. When I go on playback devices the speakers are active and supposedly working (e.g. when I have music playing in the background it shows it moving on the bars, but I cannot hear anything). I also ran the Windows Audio Troubleshooter which did not help. I also had a system update two days ago, but the speakers were not working prior to that. I doubt that it is a hardware problem, considering that the speakers were working fine just before I plugged my headphones in. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?  Thank you in advance!

Hi all, I'm having some audio issues with my brand new OMEN 17. In the middle of listening to some music on youtube, the sound slowly starting getting lower and lower. 10-15 seconds later I could barely hear anything.When I put headphones in, there is no issue with the sound. I went through all the troubleshooting, did diagnostics, re-installed the drivers from within the recovery manager, and also downloaded and installed the latest from the HP site. The issue keeps re-occuring. I'll restart the laptop and the sound will be fine for a couple of minutes. Then it starts getting quieter and then gone. (even if I close Chrome and re-open, I'll get normal sound volume for about 10 seconds before it goes)Ive tried different websites, video games, etc. Same for all. Any idea what this might be? Faulty speakers?The machine is 2 days old.... One thing that's interesting is that after the sound is gone, if I click to go forward on a song, I'll hear the sound at a regular volume for about 0.2 of a second. Just a brief sound spike before it goes quiet. Would appreciate any help.

Hello,Sorry if this is in the wrong place, as you can tell, I'm a newbie. Anyways, I'm having a bit of a problem with my headphones and speakers. It all started around a year ago. All of a sudden, my speakers stopped working, however, the headphones continued to work fine. Then, out of nowhere a few months later, my speakers magically began working again. Only problem is, my computer doesn't seem to recognize that I have headphones plugged in, so the speakers and headphones play sound at the same time. This is a major inconvenience because I like to listen to music and watch movies, but can't do so without disturbing others anymore. There might be something lodged in the headphone jack, as the headphones don't seem to go all the way in, but it still goes in enough to play sound through them. I've tried disabling the speakers themselves, but it blocks the sound from the headphones too.So basically what I'm asking is, is there some way I can 'fool' the computer into thinking I've got headphones plugged in so I don't have to run both at the same time? Or any other way to fix it that doesn't involve high-cost repairs? Any help here would be so greatly appreciated!ThanksEDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm using a Gateway NV79 laptop running on Windows 7. It's a little over a year old.

Answer:Qosmio F50-108: speakers still working even headphones are connected

Hi

You should check the settings in Control panel -> Realtek sound manager
The speaker tab contains some options on the right.
There should be a Analog port and Digital port.

Make a right or left click on the headphone jack and check if the option has been disabled which enables the speaker sound while headphones are connected.

You may have to reformat the memory stick, but that would delete everything on the drive.

Hi, I recently bought an Inspiron 17-7778 and have already found a problem. I use a pair of Razer Tiamat Headphones, which is also a headset. When I originally plugged in the mic cord, (Note: There is only one audio jack) the computer asked me what the cord was. I said that it was a microphone and that was that. The only problem is that not only does the mic not work, but when I plug in the audio jack, It doesn't recognize the audio or the mic jacks being plugged in, even though it tells me that I plugged something in. I've looked through a couple other similar forum posts and all of the answers suggest using different headphones, but that isn't an option for me because this headset was not cheap. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Headphones not working, but Speakers are and the Microphone doesn't work.

Redtrumpet12the mic not work
Hello. If you headset has 2 separate plugs -- one for the headphones and the other for the mic -- then the mic will not work when plugged into a Dell laptop with a single headset jack (aka a combo jack).
Your headset's plugs are of the TRS type (tip/ring/sleeve, or 3 segments). The combo jack will work with headphones with a TRS plug, but will not work with a mic with a TRS plug. The mic would have to have a TRRS (4 segment) plug, in order to work.
Amazon sells some TRS-to-TRRS adapaters, but we have received mixed reports about them. Sometimes they work but very often do not.
Another alternative is to get an inexpensive usb audio jack, and use its jacks instead of the laptop's combo jack.

As I said, the headphones of the headset should work okay with the combo jack. If you are not getting audio through the headphones, try a different set of headphones. If still no luck, re-install the audio driver.
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.

Answer:SA50-532: Lost sound in speakers, but working with headphones

Hello Kiran

Not easy to say but I believe that there is some hardware problem. Whole settings in volume control have influence on speakers and headphones. If the headphones works perfect I assume that there is some problem with speakers.

Your unit is not old one and the warranty should be still valid. Contact service partner in your country and let them check the unit.

Hi all,
Probably a usual post, but can't seem to find the answer anywhere! I have got a Tecra M5 running on Windows 7 and the sound was working perfectly until recently I linked up my laptop to my tv and connected an audio jack to transfer sound to the tv so I could stream a football game.

After I had finished and un plugged the cables, the sound refuses to play through the laptop speakers, but when i plug in headphones, the sound comes out fine. I have tried unistalling and reinstalling the sound driver but to no avail.

Can someone please help resolve this issue?

Many thanks,

Answer:Re: Sound not working through Tecra M5 speakers but work through headphones

I hope you must be clear that on this virtual way we can just speculate what the problem can be.
My first thought was that maybe small switcher placed in audio line out jack is pinched or blocked somehow and your notebook ?thinks? external audio jack is connected all the time.

What you can do is to check all sound settings and be sure everything is set to ?default? settings.

I'm really baffled here as to what's going on with my laptop audio. It was working just a few days ago from what I remember and now tonight when I was playing a game in Steam the audio just wasn't working. Checked audio settings in the game, all was good. Turned the game off and started testing using YouTube, still nothing. The volume is definitely up and I found that headphones work fine. When I open the 'Playback devices' dialogue from right clicking the speaker in the task bar it shows the green equalizer bar moving up and down if something is playing, but there's no audio. I've checked for any conflicting devices in here and ensured everything was enabled as per usual.

So far I've updated the drivers, uninstalled the drivers completely and reinstalled them (automatically after restarting laptop), and have checked for updates on my computer (all up to date). My device manger does have 2 drivers listed which I thought was weird, but maybe it has always been like this? I'm not sure honestly. I uninstalled both and they both came back after restarting. See the image here:


Is there anything else to try? I thought uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them would fix it, but nope.

System details: Windows 10, Acer Aspire laptop (~7 months old? No issues thus far). Let me know if I need to provide any more details! Very frustrated and need to get to bed now because of work in the morning, but I will be sure to check back and try any suggestions and answer any questions.

It's as if it doesn't detect the headphones. It says my Realtek audio driver is up-to-date. When I go to manage audio devices, there's only one device listed called "Speakers / Headphones", so I don't know if when I plug my headphones in it's supposed to detect it separately. I've tried multiple headphones, all of which work with other devices. Also, there are two drivers listed under "sound, video, and game controllers". One is Realtek Audio and the other is Intel(R) Display Audio. Should I reinstall them both? This is a new laptop that I got to replace my old laptop which had (different) sound problems, so I'm very frustrated and at my wit's end, help is appreciated, thank you.

I bought the Sennheiser HD 202 headphones and they were working fine for about 7 months. Then they stopped working. Should I toss it or try to fix it? There are probably a lot of ways to fix them but I found this so far:

Ideas?
 

Answer:Sennheiser hd202 headphones stopped working

Depends on what is actually broken and your technical abilities. In any case, as they are already broken, it can't hurt to try.

My Bluetooth headphones have suddenly stopped working. They were working fine this morning. The headphones are connected and I see it in devices + printers but I no longer see it in playback devices.

Any ideas?

For years now I have been able to left click on a link in an email and go to a website. A couple of weeks ago this changed. In Thunderbird, clicking on a link does nothing. In the Outlook Mail client, clicking on any link brings up a program to setup the Ask Toolbar. Just to see what happens I have let the setup complete and opened IE Explorer. The next time I click on a link in Outlook, it wants to set up The Ask Toolbar again. If I click on a link in Google Talk to get to my Google mail, nothing happens. Links in a browser still work. If I right click, on a link in Thunderbird, I can save the link target, paste it into a browser address bar and get to the site that way. In convenient but not disasterous. However, I am completely locked off from my googlemail.Any ideas where the problem is and how to fix it?I am running XP Professional on an Asus sPresso with a 3MHz Pentium IV and a gig of Ram and a 160 Gig hard disk.

Hello,recently the clicking of my touchpad stopped working . In the beginning, right-clicking was very difficult, now it is also left-clicking and the warranty has expired, which is very annoying.So it is possible to use the mouse and also touch/tip and multitouch, but not the clicking function. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? So I'm looking for DIY instructions or ideas. Or maybe there is such a problem with the Y50. it is not a software problem. all drivers are up to date.best regards

Hello, I plugged in some headphones via the jack for the first time after owning my X301 for 2 months.  Ever since then, the laptop speakers stopped working!!!  If I want to hear anything, I now have to listen via my headphones.  The beeping I used to hear when I plug/unplug the AC adapter is gone, too.  I have Vista/32 Home Premium. Here is what I tried so far: -Pressed the mute/unmute button on the keyboard.-Adjusted the volume via the keyboard and from the Conexant icons in the taskbar.-Disabled/enabled the speaker and (and the microphone too) from the Conexant menus.-Disabled and enabled the Conexant sound hardware from the Vista Device Manager.-Updated the Conexant Audio Drivers from 4.92.5 to 4.92.7.0 and then back to 4.92.5 (rebooted).-Enabled and disabled the beep options within the BIOS. I have noticed when sound is playing, the Conexant software visually indicates (via the green bar) for the speaker, but of course no sound comes from the speaker!  Lenovo tech support wants me to do a recovery or send the laptop in!  Help!Message Edited by toughluck on 08-09-2009 08:42 AM

Hey guys,

I have a problem with my Equium A200PSAF5E,

My sound is perfect, however when I plug in my headphones, nothing.

My headphones are showing 'connected' and when I perform the 'test headphones' I hear the sound through the headphones.

This is driving me insane as I can hear the hidious TV

Help

Michael

Answer:Equium A200 PSAF5E - Internal speakers working but headphones aren't

This is very strange?. So you are 100% sure that your headphones are ok?
Did you test your headphones with other devices?

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

But not be honest, it looks more like a headphone jack fault as a software issue.

Anyway, the sound driver should be updated?

Answer:Windows Explorer Stopped working When right clicking

The context menu is causing Windows Explorer to crash.
 
Navigate to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ ContextMenuHandlers" in regedit.exe, and back up the whole ConxtentMenuHandlers key.
 
Then start with deleting the empty values under this, then delete the values one by one testing your right click on the desktop after each. When you finally remove the right one that stops the crash you can restore your initial backup and just remove the one problem value.

Answer:Popping noises over headphones/speakers at F/B panel !!! HELP!!!

weird, I'd try making sure all your cable connectors in the computer have nice firm connections. In the good old days, I'd even suggest putting an old radio next to the PC to see if you get any popping from that, suggesting that indeed there's a loose connection in there somewhere. My only suggestion other than checking all the connectors is to try a different PSU

I'm using an Ideapad Z560 with Windows 7 and whatever sound device it came with. The headphones work fine, but the laptop's speakers don't work unless I put the computer to sleep and turn it on again. And even then, they only work for about two minutes before they shut off again. I checked the Volume Mixer and the speakers are on and apparently playing sound, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Plugging and unplugging the headphones doesn't work; it seems that the computer is able to register when the headphones are plugged in, so that's not it.

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

You need to install the "Sound Driver" for the sound-card which is fitted inside your PC case.
The correct driver can be obtained from your PC or laptop manufacturer's website.

Can you try the speakers on another PC?

Can you also confirm that the sound card is working correctly.

Since the message appeared have you also tried restarting the pc? typical support technician question

I have a HP Pavilion computer and I use Windows XP.  It has been hooked up to Sony Vaio speakers for about three years now, and everything worked fine until a few days ago when the speakers stopped working.  I bought a new set of speakers and hooked them up and they don't work either.  When I first insert the plug into the speaker port on the sound card, I do hear a crackle noise in the speakers, but then nothing.  Once the cord is fully plugged in, I cannot get it to make that crackle noise again; it only happens when it's plugged in about 2/3 of the way into the port.  The green light is lit indicating that the speakers are on and I have them turned up all the way and have experimented with different volumes - nothing.  I cannot get sound on youtube, itunes, computer games, and other online & offline content.  I just tried cleaning everything thoroughly with a can on compressed gas/air and it still doesn't work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:speakers stopped working

drucie,Welcome to CH forums.There can be many reasons for this difficulty.The (is the plug in the outlet--just a metaphor) --is the volume set to "mute"? I doubt very much if it is the speakers. However it could be the sound card. Is the sound card integrated to the mobo?What did you do--if you can remember-as the last thing just before you lost the sound?Have you gone to the device manager to check for yellow question  or yellow asterisks?If not do so and post the results.have you tried a set of headsets into the headphone jack? If not try it and post the results. Back to the "plug" metaphor--are you sure that you have the mini plug in the correct output position from the sound card?When your speakers are on do you hear any of the windows sounds--such as the start up music when the computer is turned on? This ought to keep you busy for a bit. Get back to us with your results. Good luck,truenorth

Hi,

I have a pair of QSB speakers from SoundScience, USB powered and USB Output (no jack) which worked fine for ages on my Samsung laptop then suddenly stopped working a few months ago.
I think it must be a problem that occurred when I updated some software, though I am not sure what.
The speakers are recognised by my laptop, as they appear in the Sound Properties window when I open it. The problem comes when I try to set them as default to make them play- nothing happens, and they cannot be set to default, nor can I test them. I have tried rolling back drivers, updating drivers, both on the speakers and on my sound card, but the problem remains.
At this stage I don't have the skills/knowledge to go deeper into the workings of it and I'm stuck trying to get these speakers to respond via the standard sound properties interface. I thought for a long time that it was the Samsung software that comes installed on the laptop, that was conflicting/causing the speakers to not work, but I have tried un-installing that to no avail.

I am running Windows 7 on a Samsung NP300ESA laptop, with a Realtek HD Audio sound card.
Please let me know if you need any more information about my system or the problem.

I appreciate any help you can give me on this

Many thanks
Joe

Answer:QSB Speakers stopped working

Sounds like there may be an error with the USB connection. Go to the Device Manager and check the Sounds section to see if anything is listed for the USB speakers (and if there is any error code). Also, check the USB section to see if there are any unknown devices listed.

Check in Device Manager and see if your sound card is still listed.

Go to Control Panel-> Sounds and Audio Devices-> Volume and check there, then hit Advanced and check there also.

I'm at the end of my rope here.

The other day my speakers (Logitech X-540) stopped working all together. They pop when I shut down and reboot, but in the speaker properties they are listed as unplugged.

The Realtek HD control panel gives me an error saying that I'm using Vista drivers and to download the proper ones.

I've downloaded the current drivers from Realtek (r2.02) and from Gigabyte and neither work. Is my next step getting a new soundcard for further troubleshooting or is there something I'm overlooking? And yes, I have checked to see that the speakers are actually connected to the PC

Answer:Speakers stopped working

Have you tried going into device manager and checked to see if all the sound drivers are there and if they are working correctly, you could also try to uninstall all your sound drivers and then let windows find the correct ones again by doing a online search.

Also did you try to change the properties on sound manager so that you were using Realtek high definition audio as I notice that it is not set to default on your screen shot, also have you tried to see if the sound works through your headphones.

Hey,

I was listening to music and my JBL II (2.1) speakers stopped working all of a sudden (they didn't make any special noise before they went dead), and their lights went off.
The light on the Sub-woofer is on, however.
I tried unplugging and replugging all power cables from and to the system, and all of the related computer cables. Also tried restarting the computer.
Nothing seems to work.

I've read on a similar thread that it might be the fuse blown out or the amp overheated.
How can I find out what's the problem, and how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:JBL speakers stopped working

ok check the fuse in the plug I think it should be 5amp so take another one from another lead somewhere to test . also leave for 20 minutes let amp cool down then try if works then amp over heating .. make sure unplugged both ends when checking fuse.. if still not working then look in device manager make sure these is no yellow exclamation marks .. go to start computer system properties hardware device manager if there is let us know .. hope this been helpful but someone more experienced might be able to offer better advice

I unplugged an plugged them into several spots, but to no avail. Please help.

Hello, yeah, had that happen to me before. Try this, with the speakers unplugged , restart computer, when it has got everything started , as far as start up processes finished, plug in the speakers, You should see the Balloon pop up of New Hardware installed, and it should auto detect it and after a few seconds or so, it should show you in the Audio Manager , when you open it up, a Sound Manager option, test it out and see if it giving you the stereo sound by pressing the test button , which is in the Speaker tab, you should see a blue test button.. check that out and post back how that works out please.
