New thread to satisfy people. I don't know why it makes a difference whether a thread is new or old.
I have a Dell E1505 running XP. The headphone jack works but the internal computer speakers do not. Here's what I know:
(1) it's not the speakers. I've swapped an identical set of working speakers. (2) it doesn't appear to be a software or driver problem. My settings look identical to those of another E1505, and I have tried re-installing drivers several times.
I've got a Dell XPS 1640. My internal speakers don't work with itunes and most other applications. However, when I ran the Dell diagnostics, sound was produced. Dell tech support told me that its a software problem because there was sound in the diagnostic test.
They checked the drivers etc which are current and recommended that I reformat back to factory settings which is a major hassle. I'm running Vista 64 bit, but do have a Windows 7 update disk which I haven't installed yet. They told me that installing the Windows 7 update wouldn't fix the problem. I've read about disabling IDT (which I've tried) wiggling the inputs e
I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop, and up until maybe two weeks ago my in-built speakers had been working perfectly fine.
When I tried using them again this week, I noticed the speakers stay absolutely quiet and don't make any sounds. However, if I plug in a headset on the onboard soundcard jack the sounds work fine.
I have had this laptop with me on multiple trips but afaik this happened during one, so is it possible that something has disconnected inside the laptop itself or is it maybe a common bug with these laptops?
The speakers on my laptop are not working. The weird thing is the sound works when I plug in my headphones in either headphone jack (so that's good news, I suppose). But when I unplug the headphones, no sound.
Here's the thing; you know those media buttons that make that little beep whenever you touch any of them? Well, they work fine (volume up and down, mute, DVD and QuickPlay), but no beep sound from them either!
I have just opened up my laptop and started using it for the first time in a couple of weeks. I went to play a YouTube clip but no sound came out. I have the speakers at 100% and the YouTube volume at 100% too, and I started to look at the Control Panel options but none of them really worked. I have a HP Pavilion 15 and need the sound to work as I use it for work too.
sometimes i switch on the computer and the speakers are not working but upon restarting they start functioning normally....when i enter the control panel and try to test the speakers an error shows which is ¬†as follows:
"this device is being used by another application. close any devices that are playing audio to this device and try again"
I have updated my HP Pavilion dv4 1220 US to Windows 7 (64 bit). Every components are working properly. However, my internal speakers does not working. My laptop sound only with a headphones or external speakers.
The speakers on my laptop have stopped working all of a sudden! But the headphones do though there is a low buzzing sound when i use them. When in control plan to look at the problem it tells me they are working.¬†Laptop is only a few months old!
I have an HP Pavilion g6-1d73us laptop and although my headphones work properly the speakers do not. This is a recent problem. ¬†I have tried troubleshooting with windows troubleshooter with no results. I have checked all the drivers for audio and they check out fine. I have tried driver software with no success. Windows Media Player does not work. I get an error message when I try to use it. What else can I try?¬†
I have an Aspire E1-572 that is five months old, running Win 8.1. ¬†I've loved the notebook to this point, but now the speakers have quit working completely (the headphone jack still works). ¬†I called tech support and they had me delete and reinstall the driver (Realtech high definition audio), which made no difference. ¬† ¬† She then told me the next step is to refresh my Windows installation, which will apparently blow away everything I've installed since it was new. ¬†I declined to do that because I really don't want to spend an entire day reinstalling all the programs, even though I have the data backed up. ¬†Is this truly the only way to make a final determination if it's a hardware or software problem?
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 (that's presumably integrated into the motherboard --> no easy fix)? ¬†I'm guessing it's not the speakers themselves since the headphone jack is also affected, but what is my best line of testing at this point to confirm that?
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working.¬†¬† Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps.¬† audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly,¬† mute is "not' enabled.¬† visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..¬†
I am using¬†HP 2000-2313TU Notebook PC laptop with windows 8 64 bit operating system. ¬†From the last few days i am facing some problems in audio..when i am opening my laptop the sound system is working well...but when i am not continuing any audio application( busy in some other work..) and after sometime say 20-30minutes when i am opening any audio or video file it is running without any sound..when i am restarting my computer again audio device works...if i am not using the audio files after opening my computer also this problem happens after sometimes when i play some audio files.
I just have a quick question. I put my audio on max and itunes on max and the sound is not clear at all. It use to be, I was wondering if my speakers are blown or can I adjust something to make it more clear?
