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.
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 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.
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 have a Dell Studio 1735 that emits a bad hiss when I use headphones. If I dont use any apps that use sound the hiss will go away but as soon as I use something that emits sound(clicking on a link in IE for example) the hiss comes back.
so for a while my headphone jack has been breaking. id have to wiggle around my headphone or speakers plug in the jack to make audio come out the right speaker. now it doesnt work at all unless push the jack in really hard and hold it there. does anyone know how to make audio come out of the microphone jack? like change it from input to output or something lol i dunno.
I've noticed (yet another) strange problem with my XPS 1340. I'll be listening to audio through headphones (only noticed it when iTunes was open - not always playing though) when every few hours or so,
a mid-pitched honking / buzzing noise, at most a couple seconds in duration, will sound. I've only had the laptop a couple weeks or so, and it's happened maybe a half dozen times so far.
I've never heard the noise coming from the speakers, only the headphones plugged into the front jacks
Dell Vostro has always had a really annoying (but faint) squeak, when I plug in headphones the squeaking noise literally comes out of them, its worse than white noise but I've lived with it ever since I've had my laptop (about 2 years).
Its hard to describe but you know that interference noise you get when you are about to recieve a text or phone call? It's like that but really high pitched.
Anyway I've just invested in quite a nice 2.1 setup and guess what? The squeaking comes out of my speakers, I've tried to ignore it but its so high-pitched it has actually given me a headache!
Has anyone else had this issue? Anyone know how to solve it? It means I can't use any external audio equipment that uses the headphone jack which is really annoying because the speakers built into the laptop are useless .....
Have a weird problem and just wanted some advice on what to do next, before sending in my laptop to dell..
My laptop speakers wont output any sound whatsoever. While i can hear those very same sounds via headphone jack/hdmi.. No music, windows system sounds etc via the speakers, but can hear them via headphone/hdmi..
I have installed and updated the latest drivers.. Reformatted and reinstalled operating system (windows 7 home 64 bit), yet no results..
While I am convinced that it could be a hardware problem, I was wondering if you guys could suggest any more tests/things to do..
This laptop has new install of WinXP Pro. All drivers are good, and it is working fine. It has a short history of headphones not working when connected.
I have found a fix, if you could call it that. When XP loads, connecting the headphones mutes the speakers, but there is no audio on the headphones. If I close the computer lid down and it drops into sleep mode? When it wakes, the headphones work fine for the entire session. Works every time!
Realtek drivers and software run the audio. I have exhaustively scrutinised all the settings but have found no anomoly.
i was looking at the pictures and i saw that insted of a headphone and a mic plug it only has 1, does that mean it works as both and the apple 3g headset will work perfectly for it?
Also I never had a mac b4 but the 13" macbook pro is really tempting, I always heard stuff about macs like their bad for gaming, works bad with adobe flash, and not alot of software out there for it. Any of that true?
I recently did..well something to cause the headphone jack on my SR to just go limp and useless *that's what she said*....is it possible to fix this if I disassemble the thing? solder job to get it reconnected, or is it as good as gone?
I own a Hp dv5t and recently the speakers on the laptop stoped working. the only way i can get sound is by plugging in headphones. It seems the computer is stuck in headphone mode. I've been searching for an answer the past few days but couldn't find a solution.
Anyone gotten sound from the SPDIF/headphone-jacket? I've connected a digital cable to this jacket to my reciever but i dont get any sound at all. I've changed to "Realtek Digital Out" in the sound options. Maybe there's some setting to switch this from analog(headphone) to SPDIF or maybe this is done automaticly?
I really hope i dont need to buy a HDMI-reciever to get digital out from this laptop, already spent much on this laptop
Just lookin' over the spec's on the new iphone and I noticed that the headphones now support volume control. I didn't see this fact listed before anywhere else or during the keynote... Its about time apple! The only major downside is that they are not enabling the feature on the 3G iphone. [url]
i have hp 15 r-022TX laptop and in this laptop as you know there is only 1 3.5 mm jack slot for headphone. i want to use headphone with in-build microphone (philips SHM1900) and for that i purchased a 2 in 1 jack to connect to laptop jack details are here ( [URL]...) but using this jack still laptop is using its in-build microphone not the headphone's mic. headphone is working with the jack but i cant use its mic.
