speakers not working but driver is up to date

Question: speakers not working but driver is up to date

I have a Macbook and have partitioned my hard disk to operate both windows and Macintosh. The recent change have made was upgrading my old widows xp into windows 7; since then everything seems to be working perfectly except the sound though all the drivers appear to be up to date. I believe I have enabled everything that could be disabled but to no avail. Anybody knows what to about this issue?PS. the sound is perfectly functioning when working with Mac operating system.

Preferred Solution: speakers not working but driver is up to date

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: speakers not working but driver is up to date

If you have HD sound the speaker ports are programmable and must be configured in order to work.Do you have an Orange speaker icon in the tray by the time? If so, open the icon and select the port/s you have in use and what function you are using them for. Like Speaker out, for instance using the green port. You also need to verify the speakers are not set on mute somewhere.

I cannot quite pin-point when this problem started but my screen keeps blacking out for a few seconds at a time (randomly) and then recovers displaying the message that the display driver (nvlddmkm) stopped working and has recovered.

This always causes Windows Media Player to crash (I often have a DVD playing on my monitor).

I have followed advice such as updating drivers etc. but the Nvidia site says my drivers are as up to date as possible. I've also tried turning the Aero theme off and reducing the number of flashy Windows animations but to no avail.

I have also found that recently, games which previously ran perfectly fine (e.g. Dragon Age) no longer work and crash within a minute of gameplay.

Let me know what other details you need.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Up to date display driver stops working

My first though is that the graphics driver or the graphics card are defective. Try uninstalling the graphics card in Device Manager and reinstall a fresh driver from Nvidia.

If this is a desktop PC, do you have onboard graphics or a card fitted. If you have a card and onboard grahics, run it from the onboard graphics with the card removed.

This might be a memory fault, if you have more than one memory stick run the PC with only one installed and then if crashes continue swap the sticks to test performance with each stick.

You could also try a scan with Malwarebytes just to check if you have any infections. Download the free version from here, install it and let it update before running a full system scan.

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

A week ago a bubble popped up on my desktop offering to clear space because i was running out of memory on my computer. I clicked it (shouldn't have) and it "cleared space" but now my computer won't play any sound. i have Dell speakers and they work fine because i can plug them into my ipod and play that. I already did the Control Panel-Sounds and Audio Devices-Audio tab but once I get to the audio tab this website tells me to click "Advanced" under "sound playback". However, I don't even have the option of clicking that button. it won't let me click it. Also, there is no Volume control icon on the bottom right corner of my screen (next to the clock). like there should be. I really need help

Hi jc,

Welcome to the Forum.

Never seen one of these before, Try right clicking on the speaker symbol in the notification area, select Playback Devices, You should be able to select the speaker device that you want to use.
Right click enable/disable Hide/unhide
Left Click will allow you to configure the device after selecting Configure
Properties will also give you some options

I hope this helps

I just bought a new Logitech Z-560 set, which comes with 4 satellite speakers and a subwoofer. After connecting everything, the two rear speakers are only making a kind of hissing noise, while playing NO sounds at all. The front two speakers are playing music, which sounds bit distorted, but the subwoofer is giving off this loud annoying sound. It sounds like this deep bass sound that just won't go away, it's a constant deep bass sound. I connected the speakers to my sound card, which I believe is only 2-channel. Does 2-channel mean that I can only get 2 speakers to work, not 4? Any ideas why the woofer is making this annoying sound? I turned down the bass but it doesn't help. The front 2 speakers don't even play sounds clearly either.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.

Answer:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
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.

Check to see if you have the current version of these drivers:
 
Hotkey Features Integration 
Lenovo Power Management for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP (32-bit, 64-bit)

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...

So I just got my y50-70 a week ago. Every once in a while the speakers stop working, but the subwoofer still works. It goes away when I put the machine to sleep. Additionally, sometimes when I plug in headphones no sound comes out, this also goes away when I close and open the laptop.

Answer:Ideapad Y50 Speakers stop working, subwoofer continues working

Hi Simonxliu,
 
Welcome to Lenovo forums
 
As I understood that you are facing the issue with the speakers.
 
As you have mentioned the sub-woofer is working I would suggest you update the chipset driver and also the audio driver this might resolve the issue.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.

Hi,

I have a dual boot of Fedora and Windows, and when I boot into Fedora, my headphones work fine. When I boot into Windows 7 64bit, my headphones don't work. My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!

Answer:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

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.

1.) im not sure if my driver is up to date.
2.) im not sure what my driver is, i have an idea though. is it on this page?... The name says Radeon 9200
The reason i ask is becuase i installed Steam, and i was trying to play Counter Strike: Source, and it was loading the server, it apeared to be frozen, and i didnt want to shut down my computer becuase i was running a virus scan in the background that was almost done. So i unplugged the ethernet cable from the computer thinking that if there was no connection, it would stop trying to connect and come up with an error message and i would be on my merry way. BUT!.. when i did that, a blue screen came up and said this whole schpeil about how the computer shut off to pretect itself becuase a serious error had occured. (not the usual blue screen error). I rebooted and the error report box comes up saying there was a serious error, i subbitted it, Firefox opens up and says that my ATI driver had caused a serious problem and it had no definate solutions, only ways i might be able to solve what had happned. it said i should use windows update, which i did, and update my driver from the ATI site.

so the problem is, i dont know for a fact that my driver is Radeon, and i dont really know where to find my specific driver on that site.

Hi so I am trying to play World of Warcraft on my Lenovo P500 touch and it says my driver is out of date. I bought the computer in August of last year as windows 8 64 bit OS. Then a couple of months later when it came out, it updated to 8.1. Anyway the game said the driver may be out of date I have the intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 video card. I went on the intel site and it said I have a custom driver and to contact the computer manufacturer for updates.  Now, that's what I did, searched the website's support/driver update section and got confused. I found the driver for intel for my model under windows 8 and nothing for intel under 8.1. The date released for the windows 8 driver was early 2013, before I bought my computer so how could that be more up to date then what I have already. I called the support line to ask this simple question and find out where to find the proper update which of course was a waste of time because they have to hauck their sham of a support plan. Why should we have to pay for them to answer a simple question when we already bought the expensive computer? So here I am, trying to figure out how to update the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 card/driver on my barely a year old computer, model P500 touch notebook. Thanks

Answer:My Video driver is out of date

Quick update, I found a post on a different thread that said the P500 was a bestbuy model of the Z500 so I searched the drivers for that.

But, low and behold, the list model number on the update name is the P500......The release date is 10/16/2013 which I believe was around the 8.1 update time.  So I am trying that now and we will see how that goes. If that works, then thanks for nothing Lenovo support and not answering a simple question with "hey the Z500 is almost the same thing check there." And shame on you for trying to take advantage of your customers with your support plans. Honestly just answer the questions. Signed an upset customer

During a forum discussion elsewhere about video performance a puzzle has arisen. A friend has a brand new i5-6600K, Win 10, with Intel's own HD 530 Graphics, at driver version 21.20.16.4590.

My i7-6700K, Win 10 (bought April 2016), also with 530 graphics, has version 20.19.15.4474 dated June 2016.

Using Update Drivers from Device Manager, after the search I get told I already have the latest drivers.

Can anyone explain the apparent contradiction please?

EDIT:
So meanwhile I used the Intel Graphics Update Utility which I found here
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html

That indicated there were two more recent versions:



I installed the latest, which now matches my friend's: 21.20.16.4590.
So that leaves the oustanding question: why did Win 10 Pro believe my driver was up to date when in fact it was two versions old?

Windows never updates to the "latest" available versions. It's quite common for Windows to play it safe with known working versions.

MS can't test/verify every new driver update . Often new versions are released before they can be 'validated'. It's always prudent to search out drivers yourself to have the latest.

I have an Acer Aspire One D270-1492 that I bought off someone, it came upgraded with Windows 10 and runs pretty good for being an older netbook.However it says my graphics driver is out of date, but when I go to get the driver downloads from the Acer website, the only ones available are for Windows 7, which is the OS that this netbook originally had. And I can no longer downgrade back to Windows 7 so I'm kind of stuck. How do I update my graphics driver without having to go through some third party website that makes me pay a ridiculous amount of money that is probably just a huge scam? EDIT: I have gone through the device manager and scanned for updates and such, as what Microsoft's website says. It tells me that Windows detects they're up to date but the program I'm trying to run still says they need to be updated.

Answer:graphics driver up date

You should download the update and save it to your Desktop.You then uninstall the existing driver and reboot the PC. You will then be in VGA resolution. Then double click on the downloaded driver to install it. Once it has finished installing do the following:? Right click on a blank portion of your Desktop.? Select 'properties'.? On the tab at the top click on 'settings'.? Select your preferred screen resolution i.e. 1280 x 1024 or whatever.? Select the Colour Quality i.e. Highest 32 Bit.? Select 'Advanced'.You will then have the NVidia controls to set to your personal preferences.

I have the Yoga Pro 3 with the Intel M-5y71 processor. I have been having some small issues with lag and stuttering during use. I was looking over some device drivers and noticed that my processor drivers are a generic Microsoft driver from 4/21/2009 (ver. 10.0.14986.1000). I"m running Win10 and I can't imagine the the best driver for this 2015 laptop is from 2009, 6 years older than when the computer was released. I looked for an update and found that there is a M-5y71 driver from 8/12/16 (ver. 15.40.28.45.01) but I can't seem to install it, I just get an error saying it's not the right device. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

I have free AVG & got the message that i have missing/out of date drivers . are all these free to download ? And what about something called Google Analytics opt-out browser add-ons ? Never heard of it before. should I add this add-on ?Thank you !

Answer:missing/out of date driver updates

1) There is essentially no such thing as an out of date driver. If everything is working fine, leave well enough alone. To find out if you are MISSING any drivers, open device manager. If there are no yellow or red symbols you're fine. Drivers should only be updated if there is a specific reason or need to do so.2) Decide for yourself: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

We have had a delivery of a lot of OptiPlex 9020M's which we image with our custom build which includes the drivers in the latest driver CAB from http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/2065.dell-driver-cab-files-for-enterprise-client-os-deployment
What we have noticed is that ~20% of the devices won't drive a second monitor from the VGA port. On investigation I've noticed that there appear to be a lot of drivers that are more recent than the ones included in the CAB, including the BIOS. However there doesn't seem to be a way to get these updated drivers downloaded for offline install.
Is there any known issue with 9020M's which would indicate bios/driver problems, any waay to download the updated drivers or any way of getting the CAB updated?

Answer:OptiPlex 9020M driver CAB not up to date

I fixed the problem by downloading the latest driver from the FTP site, but the issue remains; why is the driver CAB not up to date?

Ive been trying to make sure that all my drivers are up to date, so I've got the program Driver Max to make sure that they are the latest versions.

Ok so as I understand it, things like:

'Intel (R) ICH10 Express Root Port 1-5 etc'
'Intel (R) ICH10 SMBus Controller -3A30'
'Intel (R) ICH10 LPC Interface Controller - 3A16'

And all of those related things are what the chip set driver update's? If I'm wrong please explain how I update those things. If I'm right then why would it say they were out of date when I've gone to the Intel site and used the driver detection feature and it says I'm up to date?

Answer:Installed latest Chipset Driver still says it's out of date?

I would believe the Intel website. Why are you trying to do all theses updates? Are you having a problem? If you are not having a problem I would leave such things alone.

Windows says all my drivers are up to date. But for example i was going to install the Intel WiDi and said that my wireless driver needs to be updated. What are the chances that its just different type of driver it needs or the worst part a lot of my drivers are not up to date?

Answer:Driver updates showing up to date but doesn't look like it

HP laptops some with an HP utility that allows you to check for newer drivers from HP -- don't know if yours does, but you should check for that.

The only way to tell is to see if (1) your laptop supplier has newer version drivers for your OS, and (2) the hardware suppliers for your components have newer drivers.

I would not trust any of these online services that claim to check your drivers -- mostly, they just want your money to install the same thing your already have, or worse, the wrong drivers.

How can I get the latest display driver for my computer?
Toshiba's own driver download is out of date (this)

And when I tried to download new driver from Intel's website after installation it says that this computer model is not supported.
(this link)

I asked about this from one IT professional and he admitted that many of the manufacturer's websites has old drivers.

My system information:
Satellite L300
Windows Vista 32-bit
Current display driver version: 7.14.10.1329
Graphics: Integrated Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family

PS. I hope this topic is in the right place! (new here...)

Answer:Satellite L300 - Graphic driver out of date

Hi

As far as I know the display drivers which are released on the Toshiba page are the newest available drivers!!!
Please don?t mix the original drivers from Graphic card manufacturers with the drivers from notebook manufacturers. The drivers are different and designed especially for the notebook usage!!!

One big difference is the overheating protection which helps to protect the GPU from overheating!!! The drivers from Graphic card manufacturers don?t provide such protection and therefore you cannot install it on the common way!!!

Best regards

I just installed a split database on a non-profit organization's computer. In a table that contains date fields, I had set the date format to "m/d/yy" when defining the table fields on my computer. When I subsequently designed the input forms for the table, the dates show correctly in that format.

But when I installed the database on the client's computer, the dates show in "m/d/yyyy" format. I thought it might be because that computer's Regional Date Options were set to that format. However, I just experimented on my computer, changing the Regional Date format to "m/d/yyyy", then opening the database to see if the Regional format overrode the format defined in the table. It does not.

So. . . any idea why despite the date format being defined in the table as "m/d/yy" that on the client's computer, it displays as "m/d/yyyy"?

Hi,

Recently installed Windows 8 as part of a dual boot system on my laptop. I went to try to play one of the games I usually play under Windows 7 to find it would not even attempt to start as the graphics drivers were out of date... I've searched the Toshiba website for compatible drivers, only to find the newer laptops supported... I've looked around the internet and there is no mention of Windows 8 compatible drivers for the L670-14p.

I know Toshiba have got to make their money, but is it really feasible for them to expect the average punter to by a new laptop everytime a new OS comes out?

As I dual boot, its not really that big an issue, since I can go back to 7, but what about your less techincally minded customers, that have installed Windows 8 on fully capable computers, but the woeful lack of driver updates has now made that process a nightmare for them?

I have always bought Toshiba, since I use my laptop for both business and pleasure... my old Tosh, an Equium is still going strong, no issues at all... but I'm afraid the indifference of Toshiba towards driver updates is staggering, especially for modern machines. The inability and shortsightedness to not fully support a major new OS on release such as Win 8 is quiet frankly pathetic....

I'm sure other laptop manufacturers that actually update their drivers will be thankful for Toshiba's business

Answer:Satellite Pro L670-14p upgraded to Windows 8 - ATI Driver out of date

I found an info about Win 8 supported notebooks:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/checkWindows8Compatible.do?service=EU

As you can see the L670 is not in the list? so Win 8 drivers will not be released for this unit.

> I know Toshiba have got to make their money, but is it really feasible for them to expect the average punter to by a new laptop everytime a new OS comes out?

It?s just my personal opinion but I recommend checking the product pages of other computer manufacturers? every computer manufacturer release new notebook models in regular intervals? and this does not depend on new available systems.

If you would check the Win 8 upgrade matrix, you will see a raft of older notebook models which will get the Win 8 drivers? of course it?s always pity to see that own notebook model is not a part of such upgrade.

Regarding the display driver:
You could use one from ATI page or some 3rd party driver pages like omegadriver.net for example?

Greetings all! I'm trying to use a set of 2.1 speakers that were issued with my former Gateway desktop. They're called Boston Acoustics Digital BA735. Thinking they would work on my newly purchased Lenovo M73, I decided I forgo purchasing new speakers. No such luck confirming any playback from them after some troubleshooting. I later learned, browsing around different forums, that they're probably not designed for the type of card onboard.

I'm trying to weigh my options on the following:
1.) Updating the driver to suit the BA735, if possible.
2.) Updating the sound card to one that has digital output. The last card I used with these speakers was the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE.
3.) Purchase new speakers (2.1, preferably) to suit the build of card onboard.

Would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance!

Fast forward to today and it is now only recording the Date and not the time. I have changed nothing and on a rare occasion can get it to recognize the date and time in the datasheet view but never from the form.

If I type 10/26 11p it will convert to 10/26/2007 11:00 PM so the user can short hand the entry.

Goes like this:
Input folder -> OCR program -> Output folder -> [Folder just for that document]

I keep the output folder open so that i can see the new folders being created for the OCR records, which i can then drag additional files to that records folder.
Since im dealing with thousands of folders im depending on vista to sort by date modified so that the newest one shows up on top.... But im running into a problem

I've done about 700 records now (700 folders have been created) and for some reason the date modified stopped working. Now the new folder is showing up at the end instead of the beginning. If i hit F5 to refresh the window it move to the top where it should be.... but im going through thousands of records and hitting F5 for every record consumes time and makes room for error.

Why did vista stop sorting by date modified? I didnt change anything, all of the sudden it just stopped being consistent. I can restart the computer and sometimes it will start working properly again for about 30 records, but its not guaranteee.

Answer:How to add working days to a date in excel

A little tip about posting in a forum such as this one:We can only respond to what you put in a post. We can't read you mind or see your spreadsheet.In your first post you said you wanted to add days to a date.Then is your latest post you used A1 = Friday and A1 = Monday.Which is it? Do your cells contain dates or days of the week?You also said: I want to be use B1 to display what the next 4 working days will beThat sounds like you want B1 to display 4 days in one cell.Let's assume what you really want is to know is the date of 4 working days after a given date. I already answered that question.Did you look at the WORKDAY function in Excel Help as I suggested?If A1 = 6/25/2010 (a Friday) then =WORKDAY(A1, 4) will return 7/1/2010 (a Thursday) because it will skip Saturday and Sunday.If A1 = 6/28/2010 (a Monday) then =WORKDAY(A1, 4) will return 7/2/2010 (a Friday) because there is no Saturday or Sunday within 4 days after Monday.If you really want to return the day of the week, they use:=TEXT(WORKDAY(A1,4),"dddd")If A1 = 6/28/2010 (a Monday) this will return Friday.

For instance if I want to know a date which is 12 workdays later than Thursday 24th September 2015, I want the answer to be Thursday 8th October 2015, and not Monday 12th October 2015, that =WORKDAY will throw back.

After my last windows update I started getting registry errors and "referenced memory" errors so I wanted to do a system restore to before that happened. However, every date I pick gives me the message: your computer cannot be restored to the selected system checkpoint...pick another restore point. It says the same thing no matter what restore point I select.

I have a brand new dell inspiron that I've had for about 3 months. It has tons of disk space and I've checked to see that system restore is enabled and started according to the instructions on the MS website:

Method 1: Make sure that the System Restore service is running
To do this, use one of the following methods: Look in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
2. Expand Services, and then click System Restore Services..

If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, click Start on the toolbar to start it.

Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then press Enter.
2. Type Net Start at the command prompt to make sure that the System Restore Service is up and is running.

If the System Restore Service is not listed, type net start "System Restore Service", and then press Enter.

I am upgrading a friends laptop to Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything went smoothly besides the audio. I can not get his speakers to work on it with Windows 7, however headphones do work, so the audio driver is working. His laptop is a HP dv1660 and they have Altec Lansing speakers built into them.

Whats weird is when I unplug the headphones, the speakers output audio for about a second or two then quit.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:HP speakers not working with Win 7

I had a sound blaster card that did the exact same thing, audio played for a blurb then quit. Ended up I had the wrong driver. The one on the website for the system was bad. I had to just go to creative's site and have them scan the computer and it told me what driver to use and it worked. This was on a desktop, not laptop though.

Hi, on my pavilion 14-AL133TX with win10, the headphones work just fine. But on the internal speakers, while playing audio, the speakers start loud at the beginning, then the volume keeps dropping until becoming silent in approx 5-7 seconds. Tried the troubleshooter and it's unable to find out the problem.My Realtek High Definition Audio is updated with the latest driver.Speakers are set as the default device for playback. Thanks in advance for any help to resolve this issue.

I just finished building my first computer, and I have a question. I went to plug in my speakers, Zylux Speakers with Subwoofer, manufactured through Dell, and they wont work. The computer isnt recognizing the speakers, and I cant hear any sound at all. Is there something I must do to enable audio. All volume is up to the max, and I do have a sound card.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!!
 

Answer:Speakers Not Working

First off, do you have a pair of headphones that you can try?
Have you installed the sound driver?

Knowing your pc specs and what windows version its using would make diagnosis a fair bit easier for us!!

I have an HP Pavilion Slimline that came with harman/kardon speakers.  They no longer work.  The troubleshooter tells me the device is not plugged in, when it clearly IS plugged.  However, the troubleshooter also thinks the device is a "headset" -- so is there a setting somewhere that has gotten changed? Thanks for any help in advance.

Answer:Speakers not working

Hi: Yes, it is possible that somehow the setting got switched from the speakers, to the headphones. So, the only suggestion I can offer would be to: Go to the Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Sound>Manage Audio Devices, and ensure that the speakers are selected as the default device. The default device will have a green checkmark next to it.

can you tell me why my speakers might not be working
 

Answer:speakers not working

It could be a number of reasons.

A.) Are the speakers turning on preopperly? Is the green power light on?
B.) Have you made a clean install or any hardware changes to your system lately?
C.) Do you have a driver for your sound card?

I recently spilt a cup of coffee over my keyboard and pretty much destroyed it. As none of the keys were working i started pressing randomly. I sorted out another keyboard but now the speakers dont work. I know nothing about computers so i checked the volume was up high and it wasnt muted. Other than that i dont know what to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Speakers not working!

The first port of call is (normally) to go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Voice tab and ensure that Mute (first box) is NOT checked.

my computor is windows me 2nd edition, my speakers have stop working, can u please tell me how to fix this problem thank you

Answer:speakers not working

It could be anything, but the probable reason is that you have Muted an output, whether from the Volume Control or, perhaps, in Windows Media Player or similar.Double click on the Volume icon in the Taskbar (bottom right) and check that the configuration is correct i.e. that Mute has not been Enabled inadvertently on outputs.After that you will probably have to check out your sound card's drivers....

I bought my Y410 laptop in February and about a month later I realized the front left speaker did not produce any sound. I only realized a month later because I usually have the sound on mute since I use it mainly for my university work. The front right speaker and the subwoofer however was working but the sound was very low. I realized the low volume sound is an issue with the Y410 laptop so I disregarded it. However, a few months later I realized my front right speaker would stop producing sound if I lifted my laptop or pushed on the laptop a certain way. Possible hardware or wiring problem? As of today, only my subwoofer is working and both of the front speakers are not. I've already tried installing the new Realtek audio drivers but all that did was make my laptop have no sound. I've sent a service request already but didn't get a response which is kind of frustrating so I thought I'd try the forums. Anyways I hope I can find a solution to my speaker problem. Thank you for your time.
