HP Envy M6 Audio :: Sound On Headphones Not Working?
May 27, 2013
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 no sound, although everything tests fine and volume is changing. No sound from speakers or output to headphones. I have tried all invetigations, everything is OK including Windows Audio, set to automatic.
HP Envy 15 Product Number A9R05PA#ABG running Windows 7 64 bit.
Also, while sitting in its usual well ventilated space it has gone in to thermal shutdown a few times when I wandered off, and froze once on startup. I am now backing up everything ...
I have a HP ENVY M6 Notebook, after I update my PC, there is no sound at all. It shows no speakers or headphones are plugged in. Also IDT High Definition Audio CODEC was disappear. How can I reinstall it?
I've recently noticed a problem with my PC's speakers not working. I'm not entirely sure what causes them to stop working, but if I remember correctly, the first time I remember it happening was after I had my computer plugged into the TV via an HDMI cable. Since then, the speakers seem to come and go. I think restarting my computer usually brings them back, but I was curious if there was another way to fix them other than that and if I could do something to keep this from happening in the future. Also, I'm interested in finding out why this is happening to my PC.
Product Name: HP ENVY dv6-7214nr Notebook Product Number: C2L40UA Operating Windows 8
There is no sound working on my HP and when I try to test it there is a window that shows up saying there is another program running even though I just started up the laptop. The icon on the computer for volume also will not "mute" when I push the button to mute it.
A few days ago I updated from the Windows 8.1 evaluation to the full 8.1 release and since then my audio has not been working. In the control panel, "Digital Display Audio (AMD High Definition Audio Device)" is listed as unplugged. The audio icon on the taskbar is Xed out and clicking it runs the error finder in vain. Speakers no longer show up in the device listing although now that nothing is working I'm not sure if they ever did or if audio just came through Digital Display Audio. Headphones do not show up as playback devices and the volume controls on the keyboard and taskbar are inaccessible.
I have never used external speakers. The Windows 8.1 update seemed to wipe all of my HP and AMD software that came with the laptop so I reinstalled the HP Support Center and searched for driver updates and all that jive but everything shows as up to date. I don't know what else to look for as most of the forums I've seen seem to be talking about their HDMI out sound not working when plugged into a TV and I'm just trying to have sound, period.

My notebook restarted itself to make updates, once i logged on i found that the sound is not working on music files, web pages etc. other than the windows sound. The other thing i noticed is that the mute button will not go off or on? i tried to troubleshoot but nothing..I found that left clicking my sound icon and clicking on playback devices and then left clicking speakers and headphones and clicking 'Test' led to a pop up; "Device in Use.The device is being used by another application. any devices that are playing audio to this device and try again." I have checked everywhere but i can't find the device being used anywhere? I'm not willing to lose by Beats Audio.

My laptop is only a few month old, however the sound is suddenly no loner working - both through the speakers and headphones. I have a hp envy m6 notepad, running windows (i am unable to update to windows 8.1 due to other programmes that are not yet compatable with this)
Within the last couple of weeks, the sound quit working on my laptop. Since purchasing, I have been able to mute the sound and turn it back on with no trouble, but now when I unmute the sound, nothing happens. The sound icon and the Volume Mixer all show that the sound is working and is set at the highest volume, but nothing comes out. Given that this laptop has beatsaudio, it's frustrating.
The sound on my hp envy 15-3040nr just stopped working. I have reinstalled the sound drivers, checked to see if the speakers were disabled in the device manager, and used the troubleshooting tool in system and security. None of these have worked. Sound also doesn't work with headphones.
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.
since the past week, whenever i plug my headphones into my laptop sound comes through BOTH the laptop speakers and my headphones. It was working perfectly fine last week. My laptop doesn't have a Realtek driver, it has IDT with beats. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers, and if I had realtek i would be able to change the settings.
Also, this solution doesn't work:"All u need to do, is right click Communication headphones, and click Disable.right click Sound button on taskbar> playback devices now you have speakers and headphones selected as default device, and communication headphones seleted as default communication device."The communication headphones have been disabled, but the speakers still play alongside the headphones.
I think part of the problem is that the playback device is "Speakers and headphones", but I can't split this into two separate devices for the life of me. if I disable "Speakers and Headphones" and enable "Communication headphones", the problem fixes itself and then introduces new problems: certain programs requiring sound output do not work, and the volume-changing buttons on my keyboard don't change the volume.
I have IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC (as a driver?).I can't remember what I did before this happened. I suspect it was the audio driver update, but that's a wild guess.
I have a brand new Yoga 2 Pro that has an audio jack problem. The internal speakers play audio just fine. When I plug in a pair of headphones into the jack on the right side of the unit, no audio comes out of the headphones. The internal speaker continues to produce audio as if there is nothing plugged in.
I've tried using various types of headphones. No change. I tried re-downloading the audio realtek drivers from the lenovo website and re-installing them. No change. I tried rolling back the audio driver to the Windows version. No change.
Is there anything else I can try? Non-working audio jack makes this a dealbreaker and I'll need to return the unit.
Update: According to Lenovo phone support, all my headphones are 3.5mm and they need to be 2.5mm. Frankly, I think they have it backwards and what I have are 2.5mm plugs, but either way I'm headed to radio shack to find an adapter to make this work.
After I got my laptop, HP Envy 15 j000eb, back from the computer store where they put a new keyboard in it (spilled soup), I found that I cannot longer use my headphones: when I put my headphones into the audio jack, the sound keeps coming from the laptop speakers, and nothing is heard coming from the headphones (tried with several headphones, they work fine on other computers).
I updated the audio driver with a download found on the hp site [URL] but the problem stayed the same.
My audio worked just fine until before I gave my laptop in for reparation.
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?
The speakers on the laptop itself work, but when I plug in any pair of headphones or earphones (I've tried 5 known good pairs) and it is the same problem every time. The right ear piece works and the left does not. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver to no avail.
Is there any easy solution like an usb audio jack or something I can use to be able to use headphones?
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..
Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
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.
Just updated to windows 8.1 and now my beats audio is not working on my HP ENVY x2 Tablet/PC. I am running windows 8.1 32-bit, Product name: HP ENVY X2 PC, Product number: C7F27AV, Serial number: 4CN312078X. Also my headphones are not working.
When I connect my laptop to my tv the sound does no come out the tv, but remains coming out the pc speakers. it is not a cable issue as my other hp laptop works fine. i can't find a setting to change it to hdmi audio output.
I have an HP Envy dv7-7230us. I recently installed multiple HP updates deemed "critical" by their prompt. After installing and rebooting, I have no sound. If it is a clue, it also disconnected my WiFi.
