Inspiron 7548 - Bluetooth Headphone Sound Quality

Question: Inspiron 7548 - Bluetooth Headphone Sound Quality

The sound quality on paired headphones is terrible. There is a background, high pitched whine being transmitted that makes it unbearable to listen.
A wired pair of headphone works fine. The headphones work fine when paired with my Note 4 & Sony TV. A second pair of bluetooth headphones exhibits exactly the same problem, so it is 100% definitely the laptop that is the problem.
Does anybody know how the fix this please?

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.

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

Hi!

I have Satellite M70 and I have the following problem.
I want to use headphone jacket to connect my PC to my sound amplifier to ge better sound volume for the movies.
But there is some crackling noise on the line. It so awful that I could not turn up the volume in my aplifier.
When i pull out my power supply (from laptop) this noise is disappearing!

Answer:Poor sound quality M70 with headphone jacket

Hi

I have heard about a similar issue.
In my opinion the electricity could has a bad influence on the sound quality.
Such issues occur in the recording studios.
I don?t have many experience or a practically knowledge with such issues but try to goggle a little bit. I?m sure you will find a lot of useful informations

Hey so heres the deal,I have a Lenovo Y550P and i never had a sound problem but minutes ago i realized that when i plugged the headphones in the sound quality dropped very very low, what should i do, cause i always use the laptop with headphones plugged, please please help meeeeeeeeeeee, its not a problem with the headphones cause i tried several ones and they all have the same problemmm, Thanks very much, Marc

Answer:When i plug my headphone sound quality drops

Define "very very low" quality. Is it crackling? Static? Signal loss?Is the quality ok with just the laptop speakers?With the headphones plugged in, try (very gently) rotating the plug in the jack. Does it crackle or change when you do this?If you've tried more than one pair of headphones, it's possible the jack itself is damaged. This can happen over time. It can also happen if the plug its knocked too hard while plugged in, causing it to damage the jack. Certainly wouldn't be the first time I've seen that with a laptop.

I've been using my Bluetooth headphones for a few months now and everything was fine until a few days ago.  Now my sound quality is terrible. When it initially started playing the quality would be bad for the first few seconds and then it would correct itself.  Now, it doesn't correct itself. I've tried playing through the laptop speakers and it sounds ok there. answers.microsoft.com post

Answer:Inspiron 17 5767 - sound quality bad

Hello. Test by switching from the Realtek audio driver to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked [but SEE NOTE].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.

Then in step 7, if you see 2 "High Definition Audio" devices, select the 2nd one.
If the audio is normal with the native driver, it means the Realtek driver is causing the problem. Revert back to the Realtek driver and try some other things.

Answer:dell inspiron 3847 no sound from 3.5mm headphone jack

Hi,
In this case the system is working as per design. When the headphone's are plugged in the systems ask's you which is the device you chose for audio output. In this case check if the headphone's are selected as the primary device for audio output then this could be the situation.
Hoping this helps.

I've had the XPS 13 for about a week and finally got around to trying it with a new Soundbot bluetooth headset.  I've used the headset on my iphone to great success, and the sound quality is great (for a 15 dollar pair of headphones!).
When I pair it with the XPS 13, the sound quality is awful.  Muffled and just plain bad. 
When I connect the XPS 13 to the speakers I've used on my desktop computer for years (via the headphone jack), the sound is fine.
Is there any way to  improve the sound quality through bluetooth, or am I just stuck?  I didn't notice this issue come up when reading reviews.
Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7537 i7-4510U, 16.6" Touch. It had Windows 8.1 in it.
It has been working great so far, apart from one BIG problem - the audio playback quality is terrible.
When I try listening to music, I can barely hear any low-ends (or bass). I tried different plugging different equipment - my Sony stereo system, as well as, Beats Pro headphones - both yielded dissapointing results. For example, the same file played on my iPod sounds MUCH better than it does on my new Dell Inspiron. Same goes for playing the same YouTube video on another computer using the same headphones. It seems that every other equipment (another laptop, iPod, iPhone) all sound the same and much better my Inspiron.
The audio drivers are up to date (they were selected automatically based on my model on dell.com). I also tried changing Equalizers on the Realtek sound card settings. I noticed the difference, but all of the options still resulted in a vastly inferior sound quality vs. my older laptop (which I'm pretty sure has default settings, as I never had any problem with audio quality).
Does anyone have any idea how can I fix the issue? I heard Windows 8.1 on some laptops may have some problems with low-end sound, could that be the case? My older laptop also uses Windows 8.1, as does the stationary PC, so I personally doubt it. Is it possible that this could be a manufacturing defect on the sound card?
Any ideas how can I fix the sound quality are much ... Read more

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.

If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver,  do it again but reverse the names in steps 1 and 6.]
If there is still no bass then it could be a hardware problem and for that you should contact tech support. Make sure that the eq in your music player (i.e. Windows Media Player) is set to normal. Also when comparing to other playback devices, all of their eq and other enhancements should be set to flat, to try to compare apples to apples as much as possible.

Hi,

I have the XPS 8700 and just got a new set of PowerBeats3 headphones. They paired with my desktop but the sound quality is terrible.  It's extremely muffled. Sounds just like bad AM radio reception.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Answer:Poor sound quality with Beats Bluetooth headphones

The sound quality of the headset depends greatly on how it seals in the ear canal.  Try the different ear inserts and see if one allows better sound.  As long as you do not have them set as a communications device, they should sound good.
With mine if I put a little downward pressure the seal is better and I hear really good base ..
If you think it might be your computer, try the headset on another system.

Hi all,
I was hoping someone could help me diagnose my laptop. Out of no where it will not boot up. The power LED on the power button lights up when I hold it down but the screen stays blank. No other LEDs show, if the power cable is connected then the large LED at the base of the laptop lights up.
If I test the screen by holding ?d? when turning on then the screen switches through multiple colours so I assume the display is fine. I have tried removing the battery and draining the power then re-attaching the battery. I have also tried removing and replacing the RAM.
Can anyone suggest next steps to identify the issue? I feel I may need a new motherboard but want to exhaust all other options first.

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:Satellite C870 - sound quality & Bluetooth connection issue

> 1) Issues with Bluetooth - machine couldn't find other devices and there were problems with communications;

What Satellite C870-xxx do you have exactly?
From my own experience some models support BT and some don?t? so probably your unit does not supports BT or you did something wrong while BT configuration.

> 2) I'm very, very disappointed with the quality of sound. The speakers are very poor. If I knew I wouldnt'n buy it! Unfortunately, I had no chance to check it and assumed Toshiba will keep the minimum standards in this matter. In the past (some years ago)

From my own knowledge different models supports different hardware specifications. You can purchase notebook models with Harman-Kardon speakers which provide better sound quality. This unit seems to support standard speakers.
So it?s always a matter of price-value ratio and in my opinion this is not too bad.

Hi guys,
I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 7548 with preinstalled Windows 10 Home and when I tried to use the camera it showed me that it is not connected and Skype can't find it. I tried a few more sites to test if it is a Skype problem but it seems to be something with the webcam driver. I didn't had the Imaging devices in the Device manager until I went to the View menu and chose to display all the hidden stuff. Then it appeared, and in the properties section it was saying the same thing, that the camera is probably not connected but it is a built-in integrated camera so I don't thing that is the problem. I uninstalled the Integrated webcam driver and restarted the PC, hoping that it will work as it was mentioned in the Dell troubleshoot webcam instructions that Windows 10 will reinstalled the drivers automatically. This didn't happened. Now I can't even find it under the hidden stuff, it just disappeared. I also scanned for hardware changes but  that also didn't work out. I am with the latest drivers, I checked it with the tool provided online from dell. Does anybody have any suggestions what could be the problem and how to fix it? Just to point out again I just bought the laptop an I never seen the camera working so it might actually be that the camera is broken or not connected right.

Hi MOOEEZ313,
Does the system overheat? Does this happen with or without the adapter connected? Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? What applications are you using when the issue occurs?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/2dl5Cp4- reinstall the video drivers and check.
If the issue is not resolved, run a stress test on the system - http://dell.to/1NEc1Y4
Connect an external monitor and check if the issue is seen on both external display and the LCD.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG - swivel the screen and check if the issue reoccurs.

I love the new Inspiron 7548, except for the trackpad. The trackpad just doesn't work, since day 1. Half the time, it skips, clicks in the wrong places, and there is no configuration app (Alps configuration manager??) to manage the sensitivity or other settings of the trackpad. I am fairly savvy managing driver etc issues, but there are no drivers posted for trackpad in 7548 support page. What am I missing??
My trackpad absolutely refuses to work sometimes, and even the touchscreen becomes unresponsive during those times. I did a diagonstic on the Dell website  and came up with "Critical hardware error" . I personally don't think its a hardware problem as everything appears fine, maybe there are no drivers because the laptop just released a month ago? I really need help with this, please.

My laptop wont change from CPU to GPU. 
Any suggestions on a fix would be great, tried many theories that have worked for others.
I believe my laptop is supposed to have Radeon M270, however AMD automatically find your software downloads the M265. I've tried to make this work but I've ran out of options. 

I've gone to Device manager, disabled the gpu, and updated so it updates to M270, however then when I right click to view the AMD settings I get an error that my software is not supported?
(When on M265) I've got my global application settings on maximize performance.
Steam is also on high performance
I've messed about with all the settings within the AMD radeon settings, trying to find optimal performance however I still find games are running on fps 4, even when the game settings are all on very low. 
I've also used the command Prompt (Admin) fix that has been mentioned on various forums.

I updated my Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7548 to windows 10 only to be brought into a catastrophic error. Based on my research this may work for other laptops but I can only say I used and tested it on my Dell.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7548 Windows 10 internal_power_error Fix

JohnVicky,
 The problem is that during the Windows 10 installation, the computer installs the wrong graphics card driver. It installs the AMD Radeon R7 M265 driver instead of the M270.
Here are the steps to fix the issue.
1. As soon as the computer boots up, login, and then hit the Windows Key button and the X,
2. Go to "Device Manager"
3. Scroll to "Display Adapters / AMD Radeon R7 M265 / Driver/ Disable". This will stop the computer from rebooting.
4. To install the correct graphics driver, just hit "Update Driver" and have it "Search Automatically" for it. 
You can download the Windows 10 drivers from the link below.

My question is - is it possible to achieve similar charging current on the other USB 3.0 port? Since USB 3.0 is capable of providing up to 900mA, can I somehow get it to pump this much current by some driver/software manipulation?
Extra information:
I am aware of some adapters which can force higher current out of a USB port - is it possible that they may actually damage the port? (assuming that the port is not configured to provide higher current as per its driver)
While I found an average of ~1%/2min for charging on all USB ports (two 3.0 and one 2.0 with PowerShare) on my previous laptop XPS 15 L502X, in Inspiron I can distinctly see one port charging the phone at twice the rate.
I suppose that only one port is providing 900mA, while others give only 500mA. I checked the controller for the ports on HWiNFO64 and found all the 3 ports coming from the same controller USB xHCI Compliant Host Controller (on Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)), which also happens to have Wi-Fi adapter, touchscreen adapter installed on it, as per HWiNFO64.

i cannot install true color in my laptop due to this issue,anybody can help fix it?

Answer:dell inspiron 15 7548 true color issue

So i'm not familiar with this series in that i'm not sure if every version came with true color or not, so assuming yours did the only thing I can think of is it looks like your running windows 10.  If thats the case I do not see any true color driver for windows 10 for your laptop, just for windows 8.1.  While normally windows 8.1 drivers will work sometimes they do not so it could be a driver problem with windows 10.

My trackpad occasionally will just stop working. The buttons become unresponsive as well as the trackpad itself. Only way to temporarily fix it is to reboot.

Looking for guidance on how to get my laptop working again. I removed the screen assembly because of a broken LCD panel. I haven't been able to find a replacement, so I'm hoping I can just use an external monitor. The only problem is, when I try to boot it up with an external monitor, the laptop beeps 8 times in a row continuously. The external monitor lags on the Dell welcome screen, but the f2 and f12 keys don't work. 
I've tried everything the forums suggest:
removing the battery, holding down the power button, and restarting,
removing the hard drive,
loading with the D button held down

Please advise.

Just got my new laptop today, and of course first thing I do is open it up and put in an SSD. Well it looks like the "holder" that you put the drive in before screwing it into the actual laptop is warped... Photo attached. If you look, towards the left of the pic is where the screw is, then the caddy slowly protrudes out, then goes back in closer to the second screw. Do you guys think this is cause for concern (ie will it randomly one day destroy my entire laptop due to the pressure)? Or if I leave it alone should it be fine.

Thanks

Answer:Warped HDD caddy Dell Inspiron 15 7548 (7000 series)

You could take it out, take the drive out, then use light finger pressure to straighten it out. From what I can see, it wouldn't cause me any undo concern. If the retaining screw isn't binding I wouldn't worry about it.

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

Hello everyone,

Both the laptops Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 came with 6 GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to at least 12 GB by replacing the 2 GB dimms in both laptops with 8 GB dimms.

Was wondering whether it is safe and okay to combine different memory modules from different manufacturers.

I'm also leaving the US next week and so would prefer getting RAM that's more reliable and wouldn't mess up the laptops.

Could you guys please recommend which ones you'd get? I've bought Samsung and Crucial in the past and didn't have any issues.

Here's the existing RAM information from CPU–Z:

Inspiron 15R:

Inspiron 7548:

Based on the above information, could you please recommend the sticks that you would get, preferably from Amazon?

Dell's upgrade page for Inspiron 15R recommends this one:

Dell 8 GB Certified Replacement Memory Module for Select Dell Systems - 1600MHz LV SODIMM : Memory | Dell which is 1600 MHz.

So can I get this one for that laptop: Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

This would match the manufacturer of the existing stick (Kingston).

Dell's upgrade page recommended the same stick for Dell Inspiron 7548 as well.

Since I wasn't able to locate Hyundai's 8GB stick, is it okay if I get Kingston or Crucial's stick:

Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

Dear AlvinLee
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Method A:
1.  Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2.  Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
3.  Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
 
 
 
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself

I have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

Answer:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

Hi guys, I recently got a new pc. the HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor PC. What I've realized is that the headphone quality is rather poor when I listen to music or watch videos. The same headphone sounds great on my previous laptop. The model of this laptop was:  HP dv7 2250ed. I don't know much about computers or laptops, but could it be because of the soundcard? Could the soundcard in my HP laptop be much better, which makes the quality better? If so, what could I do to improve the quality (an amplifier maybe?) Thanks.

Answer:Poor headphone quality on HP 6005 Pro SFF

Hi: The  HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor PC is about 6 years old. So, that means that while it is new to you, you purchased a used or refurbished model. If the operating system was reinstalled, perhaps the reburbisher did not install the audio drivers, since W7 automatically installs a generic audio driver which provides basic audio functionality. The first thing I recommend you do is to install the latest Realtek HD audio driver directly from Realtek, and see if that helps.  That driver will have some audio enhancements you can tweak, such as virtual surround and an equalizer. Accept the agreement.  Download and install the 2nd driver on the list. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=24&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownT... Your notebook definitely has a different model audio chip (IDT), and that may be one reason for the difference, but I think Realtek makes a pretty good basic audio chip. If you are still not happy with the sound after installing the updated driver, I recommend you install an audio card of your choosing that will fit in the sff chassis.

I checked B&O play and the headphones setting is faded and it says device unplugged although I have plugged well. Is that audio driver problem? Or just the beo play software itself?

Answer:Headphone Audio Quality is Freakingly bad

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums!I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion x2 Notebook and the sound quality not the greatest. You could try:1. Right click the Speaker icon in the bottom right corner by your time.2. Click Playback Devices.3. Click Speakers.4. Click properties.5. Click the advanced tab on the Properties window.6.

I love everything about my carbon x1 except for the headphone/microphone jack audio out. The sound that comes out when I plug in any standard 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo plug sounds terrible (headphones, speakers, etc). Any particular reason for this or anyone else experiencing a similar problem? Is this jack even supposed to be used for standard headphones or what? Do I need headphones with a microphone built in to get better quality sound? Thanks!













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:carbon x1 headphone jack audio quality sounds terrible

Hi, bayern2668
 
You shouldn't need headphones with a microphone to get this port to work correctly. The reason for the symbol depicting both headphones and a microphone is to demonstrate that it supports both. On older machines, there were two separate ports for these devices, but they have since been combined into one.
 
I would firstly recommend making sure both the BIOS and the audio drivers are up to date for your machine. The latest BIOS for your machine came out about a week ago and can be found here. The audio driver is not as new, but is still pertinent, and can be found here.
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Hi Guys,

I am trying to buy a new "sports headphone" to be used at the gym. Unfortunately, where I am, I only either have bluetooth 2.0 + NFC or Bluetooth 4.0 (only 1 or 2 options) without NFC.

I am really keen on NFC, as I have a S4 and really keen to try NFC, would really appreciate any feedback on this? Is BT2.0 with NFC a better option in terms of easy of use or a simple BT3.0 or BT4.0 without NFC be a safer bet?

I am not too sure how stable the NFC technology now is, so thats my only concern.

Would appreciate some feedback on this.

Thanks
 

Answer:NFC or bluetooth sports headphone?

Since NFC only works up to a few inches, it must be used just for the setup. The Bluetooth would then be used as the link between the headphones and phone.

Answer:Can't use bluetooth headphone with earpiece!!

I don't think there is because usually when you plug in a headset or turn on a bluetooth headset it disables the speakers, so I suspect that bluetooth essentially does the same to your wired headset - probably nothing that can be done about it unless you happen to find a setting in the realtek control panel that disables the 'feature'."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

But if there's no audio input from the computer to the headphone for like a minute and then I start playing music, the audio is skipped. I have to reconnect the device for it to return normal.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series. The headphone jack on my laptop is loose, meaning that my heavy cable unplugs my headphones. I've solved this issue by taping my headphones in, but obviously a bit inconvenient.
The other issue is the noise. It's a bit distorted (and no, it's not my headphones), and some "static" sounds can be heard, as if there is a poor connection.
Short of soldering in an extension (which might void my warranty), there isn't a solution for either of these issues.
Really, I'm just curious if I'm the only one. I'd like to hear of some other issues that might be unresolvable.

About two days ago, I purchased a new laptop (a Dell Inspiron 3537), I love it so far except there is one major problem, there is only one headphone jack? How am I suppose to insert my microphone plug?
- Anyways that isn't even the major problem, that's just a side problem, here's the big problem; When I insert my headphone plug into the jack I receive no sound what so ever through the headphones and the sound continues to play through the speakers. I've tried four working pairs of headphones all receive the same problem.
Please help, I want to be able to use my headset for gaming/talking/videos/movies ect.

Answer:Inspiron 15 - 3537 there is only one headphone jack

Hello Michel, 
Problem is not either of hardware and software, this is only of settings, with all single jack laptop this persist. Please Open Sound in Control Panel and Change Setting in Playback Tab, Try Disabling and enabling headphone and Speakers. 
This must be work. 
Enjoy sound. :)

I purchased this laptop about two weeks ago from Dell.com.
The first time I plug in the headphone was a week ago and it worked.
However today when I plugged in the headphone (this is the second time), the laptop cannot detect my headphone. When I open the "Sounds" menu, my headphone is not even listed under the "Playback" tab, nor does the laptop ask me what is the device I am plugging (like other Inspiron laptops will do).
I checked and all my drivers are up-to-date. I have also ran the full diagnostic tool on Dell.com, nothing was found.
May I get suggestions regarding what to do next?
Thank you,
Herrina

Answer:Inspiron 13 7000 can't detect my headphone

Hello Herrina.
herrinakuangI checked and all my drivers are up-to-date.
> You could download and install a fresh copy of the Realtek audio driver. You can find that on your model's support page. I can provide a link to the page or the driver if you reply with the exact model model name of the laptop (all of the Inspiron 13 7000 models are named "Inspiron 73xx", where the xx numbers are the exact model.)
Here are other things you can try, either before or after the first suggestion.
> Make sure the plug is pushed firmly into the jack. On some of these new Inspirons, the jack socket is a little too tight.
> enable Waves MaxxAudio Service in the startup tab of Task Manager (in Windows 10), then restart the laptop. It is the Waves software that controls the popup.
> while in the startup tab, make sure that  Realtek (or Dell) Audio Manager is enabled. If it isn't, enable it and restart the laptop.

My 5758 inspiron documentation shows where the audio I/O jack is and simply labels it as 2.5mm headset jack.  I can't locate any more information on it.  

What is the correct plug type that fits the jack (3 or 4 contact) and what are the signals?  

Answer:Inspiron 5758 headphone jack?

Hi dsmithcsep,Thanks for posting.The speaker/microphone jack is  a 3.5 mm jack.  Since the speaker and microphone are combined in the same jack you would need a 4 contact jack.

I've recently bought a Bluetooth USB Dongle for my Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop so my wireless headphone could connect to it. The dongle connected and installed fine but when I pressed "Add a device", it saw it as a keyboard and when it tried to install the driver for it, it gave me a "No driver found" for Bluetooth Peripheral Device. It is a Ciberspeed Sports Bluetooth Headphone and it has worked for my iPod so I'm not sure if that's the issue. I appreciate any help.

Hi.I've been lurking for a bit and have had most of my questions answered and issues solved bythis fine community. Thank you!My problem is that I can add my bt headphones (I've tried two different sets) in the "add device"option, but once I shut the bt device (headphones in my case) off and then turn them back onagain the sound continues to come from the tablet or stereo speakers (which ever I'm using atthe time) and the sound won't switch to the bt headphones automatically. I must manually go theSound settings in Control Panel options and select the bt headphone to use them again. As ofright now I've got a shortcut to the Sound options on my desktop. Now this isn't a deal breaker forme, but there's got to be an easier way! LOLS!Any suggestions?Thanks!And for the record I have no wifi issues and I've upgraded to 8 gigs of ram so I'm keeping this!!!

I haven't tried using a Bluetooth headset with Windows, but check: 1.  Right-click on the sound tray icon, select Playback devices.  Does it show a 2nd bluetooth headset device in addition to Speakers?  If so, left-click on it and try the "Set Default" dropown menu on the bottom to make it the Default device (or some other option that works better). 2.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933144 3.  http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/making-bluetooth-headset-default-audio-device/87178.html

Faint (but noticeable) static when using headphones (or perhaps inaudible on laptop speakers).
The static doesn't get louder with increase in volume and only ceases when the volume is muted.
I've updated as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the audio drivers with no luck.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Headphone static on Inspiron 15 7000 series

Assuming you are hearing the noise while using the Realtek audio driver. As a test install the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (type devmgmt.msc in the search box and hit Enter) and right click on Realtek High Definition Audio.2. Select to "Update Driver Software".3. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".4. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".5. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.6. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio".7. Click "Next".8. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 9. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.
Test the headphone jack. If no noise with the native driver then it is a software problem that might be helped with a future Realtek revision. If still getting noise with the native driver, it might be a hardware problem. I can't think of a good specific test to confirm it, but you could report the issue to tech support.
Reverse the names in steps 1 and 6 to get back the Realtek driver.

Hello there, I own a Dell inspiron 6000 (August 2005 purchase) and recently I noticed that my headphone/external speaker port does not work anymore. Yes, I did the basics such as checking if my sound is muted or not. Oddly enough, my default laptop speakers work fully (built-in sound card) but, my headphones do not when I plug them in (and when I plug them in or external speakers my default laptop speakers can't be heard at all). Can you suggest what may be the problem here and how to fix it? If you look at the two attachments at the bottom, you will see one that has my dxdiag general computer information and the other screenshot is a dxdiag of my soundcard information (note: "Test DirectSound" failed).
Sincerely,
RedGrant

I bought a new Dell Inspiron 15R about two months ago now, and since I got it the sound has been messing up.

Whenever I use headphones, some sounds still come out of my speakers. It seems that if I'm listening to one piece of audio, for example a skype call, it's fine. However, if I start doing something else at the same time, for example watching a video, the audio from that video will play from my speakers instead of my headphones (looks as if some programs have priority to play out of headphones, and everything else will play from laptop speakers)

Please help, for the moment I've disabled my speakers so sounds are forced to play out of my headphones, however this disables the sounds for some programs (Minecraft, Spotify etc)

I'd love if somebody could shead some light on my problem
Thanks!

Answer:Speaker/headphone problem Dell Inspiron 15R, please help!

Hi Ryank94,
Welcome to the Community. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your audio drivers? To uninstall, click on start, right click on computer, click on properties, click on device manager, click on the symbol next to sound video and game controllers, right click on IDT High Definition Audio Code and click on uninstall, and confirm it, once it removed use the below link to install it. Let us know if this helped.
Thank you

Hello guys. I bought new dell laptop yesterday and i already faced some problems with the headphone jack. Everything is working, but when i reboot my pc without unplugging the jack, i do not get any sound from my 2.1 system. I have to unplug the jack and then plug again in order to get the sound through the speakers. I tried to look for the solution but couldn't come up with anything helpful. Reinstallation of drivers does not help. Maybe someone could help me with this issue?
