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.
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!
This problem started after updating my audio driver on my HP Pavilion dv6 7039tx laptop. I noticed that the volume has been muted and a message reads out no speakers or headphones have been connected. After using the windows troubleshooter the troubleshooter detects that "the hardware changes might not have been detected".
I have now already rollbacked the driver uninstalled it and reinstalled it multiple times rebooted my PC too but nothing seems to work. In the device manager it detects my IDT high definition codec devices. I strongly feel there is something wrong in the registry since this is not a hardware problem. Even in the HP Support troubleshooter it does not detect my audio devices. I dont know what to do I really dont want to restore my PC .....
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-6119tx Entertainment Notebook PC. There is a sparking/cracking type of Noise during Startup & sometimes during usage,which makes it too irritating to listen to songs or other things. My Audio drivers are upto date,tried installing & uninstalling them but of no luck....
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?
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 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'm trying to have simultaneous sound from both the headphone jack as well as the internal speakers. I've enabled the concurrent audio via the Smart Audio panel (Audio Director), tried the blue and red buttons (got successful results), but all of the computer sounds still come from the headphone jack.
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 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.
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.
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.
I recently bought a HP Pavilion computer (HP Pavilion 10: 10-e010nr). This was my first experience with Windows 9.1, but everything seemed to be going OK. Then, yesterday when I had to enter my password again, the computer began running very slowly and then seemed to lock-up; it wouldn't do anything. I held the "on button" until the computer shut down and then restarted it. When it restarted, it didn't get past the initial screen that shows "HP" within a blue circle and the small circle of small, white dots shows that it's working but nothing ever happens. I tried this numerous times, but the same thing happens.
How I assume the switch between headphones and speakers should work: I turn on music or anything esle and if no headphones are plugged in, every sound comes from the internal speakers. Now if I plug in headphones then the sound comes exclusively from the headphones. If I pull then out again the sound comes from the speakers and so on.
In my case the situation is the following: If I have no headphones plugged in and turn on music, then I hear if via speakers. If I decide to continue listening to that music via headphones and plug them in, then the music continues to come from the speakers, but for example the notification sound from outlook comes from the headphones. This works vice versa.
If I open, say youtube to watch a video, while having the headphones plugged in, I will hear the sound via them. If I now unplugg them, the speakers will stay silent.
What can I do that if there are no external speakers plugged in (headphones etc.) every sound will be played by the internal speakers, if I plug in some sort of external speaker it comes from them and if I unplugg it it switches back to the internal speakers?
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 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,
