I got a system exchange for my inspiron 1520 that had clicking/popping noises anytime audio was played, and my new m1530 has the exact same issue. (What I hear is a clicking/popping right before audio is played, and right after it stops for all my audio players. This also happens when it is paused.) I am wondering if this is just bad luck or if this is some mass hardware issue. So I pose the question, do you guys get clicking/popping on your 1520/1530's?
How to reproduce clicking/popping:
1) Plug in headphones
2)Turn volume down to less than 15% of the max volume (any higher and you risk ear damage)
3) Close media players, etc (not just pause, close them).
4) To try to standardize the tests, try running sounds directly from windows:
Right click the speaker icon in your tray, hit sounds. Select one of the sounds and try using the test button. The most noticeable clicking/popping are at the bottom under "windows speech recognition" as the pop at the end is about 1/2 second delayed on some of them. Device connect, device disconnect, and the logon/logoff sounds are also very noticeable.
What is odd for me is that each sound has different clicks/pops, and that they are consistent for each one. I also don't think its my headphones either, as I have three pairs (One Sennheiser, one creative, one sony) and they each produce the same clicking/popping pattern for each sound.
One of my headphone jacks on my M1530 is broken and needs to be replaced. Are those part of a separate board that can be hooked into the motherboard without the need of any soldering? I'd like to get this issue fixed, and don't want to send it into dell depot for repair. So if it's just a board that needs to be replaced, I'd like to replace it myself. If so, what would the name of this board be? I haven't had much luck looking through the forum or online.
On my HP DV5-1015TX I notice that there are 2 audio out jacks in the front.
However my speakers have only connector that I plug into either one of these. This works but I am am wondering if there would be any loss of audio quality when used this way (maybe surrond sound or something)? OR is the second audio-out an extra connection to say headphones?
I got a new used laptop but there is no sound at all, the earphone jacks don't work nor the speakers. The mouse pad does not work well either, and, I cannot use my Logitech mouse via. usb port? I am getting ready to re-install because I though this might solve the problem. I tried installing some drivers for AC97 Sound Controller but that did not work either. The drivers would not install, then I uninstalled AC97 in Add-Remove Programs by accident, I was trying to Update it. Then I installed another AC97 from download.net. After this I tried again to Remove and re-install a newer driver but it would not uninstall or install.
I recently (last month) sent my IdeaPad Y410p in to Lenovo for repairs due to the laptop not turning on, or repeatedly restarting at the BIOS screen. The laptop was repaired by Lenovo (they replaced the motherboard), and returned it to me. The laptop has worked great sincce then, except that the two USB ports on the right side and the headphone and microphone jacks do not work. I have reinstalled the audio drivers, twice, but have not reinstalled the chipset drivers at all, as I don't want to screw around with those untiol I no more about what I should do.
I have a Studio 17 and added a Dell 370 bluetooth card so I can use my bluetooth mouse and it works fine.
I saw a pair of Motorola Bluetooth stereo headphones, and I'm wondering if these would allow me to listen to my mp3's using Winamp, or if I go into a voice chat room if I can use the bluetooth headphones ?
I would like to try them for listening to my mp3's and I think the Dell 370 is A2DP compatible but not sure about that either, I cant find that on the Dell spec sheet. The headphones are Motorola S805 stereo bluetooth phones.
If it does work, does it have as good sound as a wired headset would ?
I got my XPS 1530 two months back. Now i seem to have problems with the creative headphones that came with the laptop. Only one of the earphones seem to be working. What do I do? And is there some kinda warranty for the headphones with which i can get them replaced?
i have a dell inspiron 1525...my computer has 3 jack i know one is the mic and the other two are for audio but i cant plug in two different headphones set on my computer because only one will work ..all the time is the second one that i plug in the one that will work and im sure that the point is that bout work at the same time for watch movies ,listen to music ,etc..
I received my Inspiron 7537 1080 3 weeks ago. Everything works perfectly except the static noise after connecting headphones. Tried different headphones,latest drivers nothing worked. Dell has sent an engineer to look at the problem. He replaced entire motherboard but the noise is still there. I tried Bluetooth headphones and external sound card but this hissing noise is always there in the background. I am thinking about getting another one after refund but not sure if this static noise is present in all models or was this only one off.
A ways back, I screwed up my headphone jack & moved to headphones w/ the USB Connection & ever since, it has been 1 headache after the other.
They`ll work fine for awhile & then everything gets played w/ a higher pitch garble. This happens w/ my ITunes, Youtube etc.
I have disabled & re-uploaded the audio drivers & it works for a few minutes & then back to the same warbling racket. Also, lately Ive noticed that I can be listening to nothing & I can hear crackling coming out of my headphones.
i am the proud owner of a brand new HDX18T. Everything seems to be functioning fine except the following:
Whenever I plug in headphones, the audio from the PC speakers continues to play. I can hear everything in the headphones AND the PC speakers at the same time. I spoke with an HP support tech who suggested reloading the driver which I did. The problem remains. I am hoping that this is a software setup somewhere that I just haven't found yet,
Aspire 7520G, Realtek audio installed, Logitech Z-10 USB speakers and Steelseries Siberia Neckband Headset with additional sound card (see pic).
So. When I switch off winamp, plug out speakers and plug-in my headset - its not working! The most interesting thing is when I just plug-in in the headset without sound card (just directly to the note) - it works!
I dont know why, but earlier it was working properly with this external sound regulator. And now not.
I suppose, it might be because of USB/analog switching or something similar, but I dont know..
My computer went through a standard update, nothing out of the ordinary and all of a sudden my audio doesn't work. I restart my computer and it works for a couple of minutes and then it stops. Ten minutes later it works again and then cuts off and so on, so forth.
Product Number: C8F10AV Model Number: I have Windows 8, 64-bit operating system.
I followed the direct HP support website to troubleshoot the problem and it told me to turn the volume up.
I recently bought a Y50, only to discover that no matter what headphones I use, no sound will play. The actual speakers on the laptop work fine, I just cannot get any sound through headphones. I have tried messing with the drivers, but with no luck. What could be causing this? Or is my headphone jack busted?
I have a problem with my HP ENVY m6 laptop (Running Windows 8) regarding sound on my headphones. Just as recent as today, when I plugged in my headphones no sound came through. I tried another pair, but got the same result. This laptop is only about 4 and a half months old (Got it in mid-January), and this is a real bummer.
I have a 6935g which has a 5.1 speaker output. I wanna use my Sennheiser PMX 100 headphone (open type ) as my rear but when I plug the headphones on the rear speaker jack the speakers on the front will be disabled.
what Im trying to get is get the front speakers working while my headphone plugged on the rear jack is acting like my rear. this setup is possible on the old cmedia sound cards. how I will make this work on a realtek soundcards?
I own the Pavilion g6 and ever since I've gotten it, I've had audio driver problems. This is a recent one. I'm not able to set my Communication Headphones as the default device.The reason I want to is because I want audio to go through my headphones only, but if I disable speakers and headphones, volume mixer glitches out and says "No audio device is installed" I've also had other problem too, my microphone does not work correctly but the headphones do. I've already tried uninstalling / reinstalling by the way.
I have a X200 Tablet, I can use my headphones when listening to music on my computer but whenever I go online to say Youtube, I can't hear anything with my headphones. The speaker on my computer is working well. The problem is I can't hear anything with my headphone when I'm watching a video online. I've tried the control panel and going to audio. The computer says the headphones are working properly...
