Newest Conexant audio drivers are installed, win 7 64.Am I screwed and speakers just gave like that without warning or do any of you know about some specific issue?Thanks, Pavel.

Just a few days ago, the speakers (and subwoofer) of my lenovo y50 suddenly stopped working. I've already tried some fixes, including input options in the realtek audio manager. Sound coming trough the headphone jack still works though, but since the speaker malfunction it has an irritating white noise. Anyone who also has this problem or knows the fix?

Hi I have a Lenovo W500 4062-5YG... O/S: Win 7 Pro My sound device is a Conexant 20561 SmartAudio HD. The problem is, that the internal speakers have stopped working all of a sudden... I think it is a hardware problem since when I hookup external speakers or headphones they produce sound... but I am no expert! I have done the following to try and fix it: Disable, then enable audio driversUinstall, then install audio driversSetting the internal speakers as the default speaker sourceRestoring the system to an earlier day (where I knew that the speakers had functioned)None of these actions have worked. I actually thought I could perform a hardware test on the speakers in the "Lenovo Solution Center"... but it doesn't seem like it:-( So... How can I know for sure whether it is a hardware or software problem?And more importantly - How can I get my internal speakers to work? Any help is appreciated. CheersPhilip 

Answer:Internal speakers have stopped working (Lenovo W500 with Win 7 Pro)

Hello Philip,
 
As mentioned in your post, you have performed all the major troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. I suggest you to update your BIOS also in order to resolve your issue. You can download and update the BIOS update utility from the below mentioned web link.
http://support.lenovo.com/en_SG/downloads/default.page?
 
Kindly click on Quick path and put your 7 Digit TYPE-Model number(40625YG) in the box and then click on the Find My Product. Please click on BIOS and then download the BIOS update utility according to your Operating System. It might resolve your issue. If it will also not work then it seem to be an issue with hardware. Kindly get in touch with the support centre they will assist you and try to resolve the issue.
 
Regards,
Harish

Hi!Lenovo TP T500, Win7Pro 32. There was a problem with the integrated speakers. Yesterday worked fine. Then, after a conversation on Skype through a wired headset from the integrated speakers sound stopped going. Through headphones the sound is fine. All tests are integrated speakers through the control panel are normal, no errors shown. But the sound of them is not. That is, I have created the absolute impression that the laptop "thinks" as if the headset is still activated. What will advise?

Answer:Lenovo TP T500, Win7Pro 32. Speakers stopped working

Make sure if you haven't done so already to press and hold (for a few seconds) the volume UP button on the top row of the keyboard.  It's usually pretty close to the blue ThinkVantage butoon.

My Wifi connection suddenly stopped working for no obvious reasons -  These are the things I have done till now:trouble shooting and reseting the network connection/adapter- forgetting and setting up the wifi connection,resetting the PC to an earlier date when it was working fine, reviewing everything I could find here and following the recommendations, Installing the latest drive - checking the hardware which says it is working fine; and then downloading the wifi test from Lenovo website and running it which tells me everything is fine apart from network adapter - see the log below. Not sure what it means by wireless adapter should be enabled, it is already enabled and I have not changed anything.... after a long long time spent on this, I am now giving up- I was just wondering if this problem may be a hardware problem and needs parts, refering to a specialist or not?  Obviously it is very disappointing, I had my laptop for less than a year, it is my fist Lenovo, but no other laptop of mine (and I have used many other brands) have ever given up after less than a year - still keeping my fingers crossed that it my not need actual servicing...  ?WarningSome tests finished with warnings ?Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network AdapterResult Code:WWF00F000-VI7X5DUDIQualcommAtherosCommunicationsInc.-QualcommAtherosAR9485WB-EGWirelessNetworkAdapter-20:68:9D:79:55:AFMAC Address20:68:9D:79:55:AFManufacturerQualcomm Atheros Communications I...

Answer:U410 wireless stopped working after less than a year

hi NazD,
 
Seing that you've already done some troubleshooting, try to rule out any possible software issues (corrupted drivers / updates) that was pushed into the unit by pressing the OneKey Recovery button as this will restore the unit from factory settings (ensure that you backup all important data).
 
If you still experience connectivity issues and the machine was previously connected to this router, I recommend you contact lenovo and report your findings as this may require the unit to be checked and if verified that the wi-fi card is defective, the unit maybe required to be sent into service.

My Lenovo U410 microphone(Conexant SmartAudio HD)  isn't working. I tried a number of things from various posts but hard luck. I checked that its configured correctly. The OS is Windows 7. Could somebody help me with steps to check if its an hardware problem. Thanks.

Answer:Lenovo U410 microphone not working

hi gvirmani,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify, have you tried to record and playback your voice using the built-in Sound Recorder?
 
If the microphone levels fluctuates but you're not able to hear anything when you try to playback the recording then there's most likely a defect in the microphone and you may need to contact Lenovo for service.
 
Alternatively, you can try using a USB headset w/ mic or a USB camera w/ mic as a temporary replacement.
 
Regards

Hello to all, The Keyboard of my lenovo U410 suddenly stopped working properly. It's not like the whole keyboard doesn't work, but some keys do work, and some don't. (on the top row, only 5 & 6 work. below that only t & y work. But below that all the keys a to l work!)I tried to download the drivers from the Lenovo website already, but these are the same as the drivers that were already on my computer I believe. That doesn't work. System recovery (to the system status of a week ago) doesn't work either.Does anyone have any ideas? it might be that this is a hardware problem, but I've had several problems with my touchpad in the past too. And then in the end with a lot of trying, it worked again. So before I will have the keyboard replaced, can anyone help me with ideas, how to possibly fix this? I'm also fine with recovering the whole system while I have a backup of all my files. I just don't really know how to do this without loosing windows really. Thanks in advance. Regards,Onnea

Hello, So since a few months now the "qwer uiop" keys on my laptop have suddenly, out of the blue stopped working. I didnt spill any drink or liquid on my laptop so it has to be software related, right?With that in the back of my head I have tried several things to fix the issue; remove all the keys from my laptop and cleaned it all up, I tried updating the keyboard's driver, tried starting my laptop in safe mode to see if it worked there and it didnt. I also tried another BIOS but that didnt work either.I am at the point to where my laptop is driving me nutters, and there is simply no solution to be found around the internet, so you people are my only hope.Please, only reply to this post if you had these issues before or if you have another solution for me that I havent tried yet. Thanks a lot in advance.The laptop in question is a Lenovo u410 ideapad, currently running Windows 10.

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...

hi dharamc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking this issue under the BIOS mode.
  Power ON the computer and start hitting F2.
 
If the problem is visible under BIOS, then don't mind the driver as the problem might be the GPU or the LCD screen.
  to isolate the issue further you can use an external monitor.
 
If the problem is not visible under an external monitor, then you have a problem with the GPU
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

I, too, have had the same issue that users in this thread are reporting. I have a U410 bought in the spring of 2014. There was a break at the hinge and the screen is separating from the lid. I've never dropped the computer, this issue arose one day after general, every day use. I've attached photos of the issue for others to reference.

Hello all, I am recently having some inconsistent display issues with my Lenovo U410 laptop i7 1TB with a Windows 8 PRO upgrade (came with windows 7).  When I press the Power Button on my laptop to put it to sleep, the Screen turns black as if it is off, but the Power & Battery LEDs on the front of the laptop remain on, as well as the LED on the power button.  However, when I try to wake my laptop, there is no response on the screen (remaining black as if it is off).  The internal fan is running, however I receive no feedback when "blindly" trying to input my password. I've tried to turn the power off and back on to no avail.  I've also removed the power source and held the power button for a couple of seconds and that did not solve the issue either. I've tried connecting the laptop to a screen via HDMI (since there is no other AV port on the device), but there was no signal being sent through.  This is an inconsistent issue that began yesterday 6/11/2013.  When the laptop is left alone for a little and is turned on again, the display works, but after closing the lid (sleep) or pressing the button, the display fails to turn on upon awakening. In most recent circumstances, Today (6/12/2013) I was installing a Windows update that required my computer to restart.  When the update configured perfectly BEFORE it was restarting, but AFTER the restart, my internal fan began to work, but the display was not on. Does...

Looking for advice on how to resolve this problem please.

I've seen several instances of a web cam interfering with PC sound.

As the Z120 speakers are USB powered, check the connections for the speakers.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

Hi everyone,I know my speakers is the problem here and not the SW or OS.  Basically if I have the lid at a certain angle, I will hear sound from the speakers.  however, when it's fully opened for practical use, sound stops. Probably a bad cable or the connection is loose.  Any suggestions? Thanks

Look for speaker icon in taskbar and look to see if it was somehow muted, or one program muted all other inputs but did not release them.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

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."

My Logitech x-240 speakers just stopped working. I followed the advice on an earlier thread to uninstall the driver then reboot, now there is no sound at all. At first, the volume was gone. The subwoofer is working, and the speakers were working, then, I could not turn up the volume. Now, no sound at all. Everthing is as it should be, no yellow warnings on the driver, and in the Realtek Audo configuration screen, everything says working, just no sound. I have not changed anything, nothing got unplugged. One minute I was watching a video, paused it, came back and hit play, then low to no sound from speakers. Please help!! Thanks!!

This is my first time posting so I hope I'm doing this right. Anyway, the last time my speakers were functioning properly I was watching a movie when my battery ran out. I quickly plugged in the AC adapter and booted my computer up again and that's when the speakers stopped working.

Strangely enough the sound works if I plug in my headphones. I've made sure the speakers aren't muted and all that other stuff so what could the problem be? I believe I have a Realtek sound card and the drivers are up to date last I checked. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

Hello,

I was listening to the radio on the computer and then lost the sound.
I restarted the computer to see if that would help, but it did not.

I checked all the connections and everything seems fine.My off on dial is lit up so it seems to be getting power.

This stereo system is about ten years old. The bass went out last year but the speakers have been doing fine. Maybe it is just gotten to old to work anymore ???

The speakers in my Samsung v20 laptop worked fine until I used the headphone socket to plug the machine into my amp. Since then they haven't worked. The headphone socket works fine with both headphones and the amp but I can't get anything out of the speakers.

I've tried windows and linux, everything is unmuted and the volume is turned up full.

Can anyone suggest anything that could be wrong?

Playing a music file today, I realised that I was only getting sound out of two of my Creative 5.1 speakers, left rear and right rear. Om investigation, I found that the audio settings had become set to "Desktop stereo speakers". I've reset this to "5.1 surround sound speakers" and rebooted (just to be sure). It's still set to this, but I still only get sound from the two rear speakers and a bit from the subwoofer, whatever I try. I've checked all the cabling to make sure nothing had come loose. Everything has always been fine until now. Any ideas how I get my 6-speaker sound back? I have a Creative Audigy card and Creative speakers.

I recently purchased a Pok3r keyboard, and now my USB microphone(AT2005USB) and my speakers (Bose Companion 5) refuse to work together. However, when I have my old keyboard plugged in, they work together just fine.

My microphone has a way to listen to yourself while you talk, so it also is registered on my computer as a speaker. When I have that speaker enabled, my microphone works fine. When I disable that as a speaker and set my Bose speakers to the default speakers, my microphone doesn't pick up any sound according to the computer. I'll put a little gif up of what happens.

As you can see, when only my speakers are enabled, my microphone doesn't pick up any sound. This ONLY happens with my new keyboard plugged in.

If I have just my keyboard and the microphone plugged in, even if I disable the Microphones "speakers" it still will pick up audio on the microphone. It's only when I plug in the speakers as well that it decides not to pick up any sound.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? None of the devices have device specific drivers; they are all just installed by windows.

EDIT: I figured out that my keyboard works fine with everything when I plug it into the front USB ports on my computer, but it doesn't work on any of the back ports. I don't know what I should be doing to solve this problem.

Could this be a power issue? It always seems like one thing has to stop working for another thing to work. Maybe my new keyboard draws more power than my old on... Read more

So briefly, my processor has 6 jacks in the back and 2 in the front to connect my speakers to. In the back there is a Green, Pink x2, Black, Grey and Blue Jacks. In the front there is a Pink and Grey Jack.

Now I have two sets of identical speakers and having only one Green jack I connected them both to the green using an adapter. So basically the same sound came from all the speakers.

Then yesterday I decided to try make it more surround sounding and I found out that the Black jack is for some sort of other speakers. So I connected them, and I set my sound options to quadrophonic. And it worked beautifully. Then I had to leave and I turned of my computer.

When I turned it back on, the speakers plugged into the green one still worked while the speakers plugged into the Black jack don't work anymore. I tried switching them around and the speakers that were plugged into the green one still worked while the black didn't. So its not something with the speakers.

I set defaults to everything and retraced my steps but nothing works. When I do the test, I set it to quadrphonic and it shows 4 speakers, then it tests each one and the plugged into the green ones make a sound, the others don't. What went wrong?

About a week or two ago, my speakers stopped working. The headphones work fine and when I unplug the headphones the Twist notifies me that the headphones have been unplugged, so it's not a mechanical issue. I've updated the BIOS and all the drivers I could find through Lenovo, but still nothing. Anybody have any ideas? 

Answer:ThinkPad Twist speakers stopped working

Hi Laryu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that speakers of your Lenovo Twist had stopped working suddenly.
 
I would like to thank you for updating BIOS and audio drivers.
 
In the sound manager, test the left and right speakers. Make sure that speakers volumes are up.
Try removing the Realtek drivers and let windows install the generic drivers for your device and check if the speakers work.
 
If it does not, however, then I would recommend contacting our Technical support and telling them of your issue. Seeing as how you're speakers are not recognized for a test, then I am inclined to think that it is a hardware issue.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Hope this helps resolve your concern!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

The speakers for my dell XPS 8500 computer and my dell latitude 10 tablet stopped working on the same day. My computer speakers had been plugged into the monitor and working fine since I got the computer a few months ago. Both the desktop and tablet run windows 8. I have tried dell tech support, but they can not seem to figure it out. I am concerned that since both went out on the same day it could be related. One reason I feel that it may be a single issue is that on one occassion (when I first setup my tablet) my tablet stopped responding and my desktop monitor entered and would not exit standy mode at the exact same time. If anyone has any idea on what could be the cause of the speakers not working on both my desktop and tablet please let me know. I am posting this hear in case its some kind of windows 8 networking issue.

Answer:Desktop and Tablet Speakers Stopped Working

Since both of your computers are Dells, did Dell support have you run their online diagnostics for your system hardware? The online diagnostics are very much like the PC Doctor based Dell Diagnostics that are likely already installed on both of your Dells. The advantage the online diagnostics have is that they are often more detailed and more up-to-date.

If they didn't have you run them yet, they are free for you to use to troubleshoot your computers. Here's the link to the diagnostics home page --- Dell PC Diagnostics | Dell US --- Note that you can choose which diagnostics to run: 1) all diagnostics 2) diagnostics by symptom 3) diagnostics by component. If you don't have a lot of time, you could start by running the sound system tests.

Both your desktop and your tablet have Realtek audio, ALC3800-CG for the desktop, ALC3261 for the tablet. A feature of Windows 8 is a background service that functions as an Automatic Update for drivers . . . So, possibly both of your computers received a sound driver update on the same day ... or possibly a recent Windows Update arrived on the same day that just happened to affect your sound drivers.

I'll guess that you've already tested for sound with a pair of headphones on each computer?

If it seems likely to be an audio driver issue, you could try different drivers (newer or older, from Dell, Windows Update, or Realtek) ... with the Dell drivers likely to be your first choice. To go straight to the last driver that w... Read more

ANY HELP APPRECIATED.

Answer:Re: Satelllite A100-200 speakers has stopped working

Hi

Question 1: What Windows system are you using?

Question 2: Did you connect the headphones to the notebook in order to check if sound would be available using headphones?
Please do that!
If sound would be available using headphones, then the sound driver is OK and in such case it could be possible that your speakers are faulty.

Furthermore please check if the sound is not muted.
Go to the control panel -> sound and check the playback tab
Here the speakers should be set as default device.

Roll over the notebook and check the label at the bottom of the unit. There you will find the notebook name!

>Speakers have stopped working on Satellite A series
Open the device manager and check if any yellow exclamation marks appear. If you can see such yellow sigh maybe the sound card driver was not installed correctly.

Additionally please connect the headphones to your notebook and check if you can hear something through the headphones.

Hi everyone.I have the 5.1 Logitech surround sound speakers hooked up to my PC. It's the z-5500 version.

Today I went to listen to music and the speakers have stopped working. The music is very choppy, and the sound will change to different speakers, almost as if it's shorting out. For instance, you'll hear partial sound on the left-front speaker, then it'll change to the rear-back speaker, and the sound isn't constant. I also hear "pulsing sounds" coming from my subwoofer and all other speakers like every 5 seconds. I've tried different applications (itunes, vlc, windows media); same problem.

I haven't screwed around with any drivers or audio settings for these speakers. I know for a fact it isn't my soundcard, as I used headphones on another port and the sound is normal. I also have the speakers plugged into a UPS, so nothing electrical could have damaged it.

I'm running Windows 7 32 bit with no sound drivers installed. Default windows sound configuration is set up.

Any suggestions as to why these speakers just suddenly stopped working? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards
 

Answer:Logitech Speakers Suddenly Stopped Working

Well if you plug headphones in and the sound if normal, then its most likely to be the speakers themselves. Is the anyway you can plug the speakers into another PC and see if the problem persists?

Hi, LenovoTwistUser

Seeing as how you're speakers are not recognized for a test, then I am inclined to think that it is a hardware issue.

Hello,

Yesterday, my speakers were working just fine, but today I turned them on and they just don't work. They can not play any sounds including system sounds. I have Windows XP Home edition. I use the speakers that came with my computer, which is a Cybertron (don't know if you have ever heard of it)... I believe the speakers are called Realtek AC'97 Audio, because that's what comes up in the Device Manager. My computer DOES recognize them, I am sure they are wired correctly, and they are set as my default sound device in all necessary categories.
I was doing all of the troubleshooting for my sound, and nothing was helping. Eventually, when I revisited the device manager, there was a driver (I was dumb enough not to write down it's name) that had an exclamation point next to it. I right clicked it and went to properties, where I was told to uninstall the driver, restart my computer, and reinstall the driver. I uninstalled it, restarted, and then forgot the name of the driver and was unable to reinstall it; however, the speakers stopped working before the driver had an exclamation point next to it. Before I uninstalled the driver, my computer played system sounds, but no other sounds. Now it can not play any sound at all.
In the device manager, the things that come up under Sound, video and game controllers are:
- Audio Codecs (Device Working Properly)
- Legacy Audio Drivers (Device Working Properly)

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.

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

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.

I have a Satellite C855-1J2 running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. I turned it on on the 21st December 2012 and installed five applications - the latest versions of Firefox, CeltX, Notepad++, Open Office and Microsoft Security Essentials (I removed McAfee). I also got all the latest Windows Updates. Since then I have not installed any other applications.

For three days afterwards, my laptop was running fine until, suddenly, the speakers stopped working. I can identify the exact incident which caused it. I had plugged in a pair of perfectly ordinary headphones using the standard headphone jack socket, powered the laptop down after I had finished listening but left the headphones plugged in.

When I turned the laptop back on the next day, no sound came from the headphones.
When I unplugged them, no sound came from the speakers.
I rebooted my machine and the speakers worked fine.

However, I am now in a position where every time I turn my laptop on, the speakers do not work and they will only function again when I next reboot. A little investigation of this problem shows the following...

Answer:Satellite C855 - Speakers suddenly stopped working

Hi

The issue you have described above looks to me like the speakers would not be chosen as ?default? device but the Digital Audio (S/PDIF).
Somehow the sound driver cannot detect the speakers from the first system boot.

I have no idea why this happened but I?ve got two proposals:

*1)* Uninstall the sound driver from the system. Download the newest sound driver from Toshiba page and install it after the notebook has been rebooted first.

*2)* If sound driver installation does not help, last resort would be the system recovery.


> 2) What is the Toshiba solution to this problem?
If you want to get some recommendation from Toshiba, I would give advice to contact the people. This is user community.

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.

Welcome!Computer Hope is the number one location for free computer help. The forum will help everyone with all computer questions. More information gives better answers. This problem has been reported before on some computers. The fact that the computer is five yes old, an important detail,  does not mean the computer is wore out.In some examples  some headphones plugs will damage the jack (receptacle) on the computer. This is a mechanical problem.

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.

Hi friends,

My satellite c640, internal speakers suddenly stopped working but works fine when earphones or any external sources are connected
Is it a hardware problem?

I?m using win 7 64bit and I tried to install drivers but seems to be a hardware problem

Thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite C640 internal speakers suddenly stopped working

Hi

I?m not sure if this is a hardware problem.
You may have to check some settings.

In control panel -> sound -> playback tab.
There you should see the speakers chosen as default device.
You can also click right on these speakers and you should see some options:
? speaker configuration
? test
? disable
? and so on?.

Test the speaker firstly. In my case some short bell sound appears. You can also mark the speaker and click on Properties button. There you will see a second window with some tabs. Check the second tab called LEVEL. There you can change the sound level.

What happen exactly when you try to reinstall sound driver? Do you get any errors?

Hi,

The sound in my L650 just stopped working all of a sudden. It was ok, and then nothing.

When plugging headphones, I only hear a crackling sound, that keeps the same volume regardless of system volume being 100% or mute.
I have no other way of testing sound output (neither hdmi cables or USB speakers).

Nothing was installed recently. Drivers are up to date. Restart didn't solve it. Uninstalling and reinstalling sound controller either.

All seems fine on the processing part (equalizer and sound bars move).

Could it be something got physically detached/unplugged/broken inside?

Cheers

Answer:Sattelite L650 speakers and sound jack output stopped working

It was a mechanical problem all-right.

So now I just have to open it up to figure it out...

X220 tablet (about 2.5 yrs old, out of warranty) was working completely fine last night; this morning, no sound is coming from the laptop, either through speakers or through headphones (audio jack).  I am, however, able to get sound through a bluetooth-connected speaker. I had hoped this was a software issue.  Tried uninstalling/installing all sound devices, updating BIOS, updating drivers, system restore to previous date, rebooting a million times, etc.  No joy. When I run the sound troubleshooter, it says that no speaker, headset, or headphone appears to be plugged in.  The sound icon has a little red circle/white X next to it.  When I try to plug in headphones, nothing happens -- does not seem to detect the event.  When I press the mute and volume buttons on the tablet, no response. Also, under Device Manager -> Sound, video and game controllers, it lists only "Bluetooth Hands-free Audio" and "Intel Display Audio".  I don't think either of these is the normal X220 audio driver, is it?  What else should be there?  I downloaded the Conexant Audio Software from Lenovo's site (this is what came up when I searched for audio drivers for the X220 tablet), and tried to install it, but halfway through, it said the install failed because it couldn't locate the device for the driver. This sounds like it's a hardware problem -- any way to verify?  Also, which piece of hardware exactly?  Is it the sound card ...

Answer:X220 tablet - sound suddenly stopped working from speakers and headphone (but not bluetooth)

If it doesn't appear in the device manager, it sounds to me like the sound chip (codec) or some support chip has died. I'm not sure how exact you want the answer to be. I think on that model, the codec is a Conexant 20672. If I am correct, the normal fix is to replace the motherboard. Many x220 machines are still under warranty. If yours is, now would be a good time to use it. You can check here:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-service/warranty-status/default.page?

Answer:my lenovo g460 internal speakers are not working

hi arjunkanda,
 
Can you try Uninstalling and Reinstalling the Audio Driver,
 
Open Device Manager and look under sound and gaming controller for WIN7 and Audio input for WIN8/8.1
   Look for something says Conexant, and uninstall it.
       Place a check if you're prompted of "Delete driver software for this device"
 
Then install a audio driver from this download link of your system and install it.
      http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT072732
 
See if that works,
  If not then, Im thinking a connection problem of the Speakers,
 
You can check your system's  Maintenance Manual to check on how to get access to the speaker cables connecting to the Mainboard on page (52).
 
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

For several last days, I have a strange behavior of speakers and microphone in my t470p. For most of the time they are unavailable in both Linux or Windows OS. However, where I'm doing little push on screen backward (like adjusting screen little bit), both microphone and speaker start working and become available. After I stop adjusting screen (making push backward) device become unavailable again. I'm sure that it is some kind of hardware problem and it should be easy fixing (like some connector is not attached properly inside LCD panel), but according to maintenance manual, I do not see any wires related to speakers or sound card going inside LCD panel. Can anybody advise how to fix such behavior?

Connect an earphone to your system right click on the speaker icon in the task bar select playback devices option and check if the earphones are visible. If yes select the earphone and make it default. 
 
If the installed driver is Conexant then selects Conexant smart audio and select audio director under this option select multi streaming option and check for the issue.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists.

I bought a new lenovo G560. It was working good for about three weeks and then it just turned off itself once, after I could barely turn it back on even it does it works for an hour or so, sometimes just a couple of minutes, sometimes doesn't even load windows, just shuts itself down. I manage to download Everest, it said the temperatures were about 45-60C because I thought it might be an overheating problem, but it doesn't seem to be overheating. One friend suggested that it might be a bug or something, so I did the one key recovery, was pretty happy that it stayed on long enough and thought that maybe it did the trick, but nothing really changed. So I really have no idea what's wrong. Also I tried calling lenovo customer service. I am in UK. First time called them nothing happened, just nothing no answer, so I found another number online, called it and it was quit interesting. It said to chose option one so I did, but then the guy said I'll redirect you and then chose option one, so he just redirected me back to the begining, so I press option one again, a woman tells me that I have to call another number, it's the same that didn't work last time, it works this time, but when I have to choose between two options none of them work, i press option two like a million times, nothing happenen, maybe it's my phone but it did work before... so not entirely happy with the cutomer service rigth now.
