HP ProBook 4720s Audio :: Sound On Headphone Jack Has Very Little Dynamic Range - Music Squashed
Jun 5, 2014
Speakers in the laptop play music fine. When I use the headphone jack the music in my headphones has very little dynamic range. The music sounds squashed. The loud parts are limited and the soft parts are raised to the point that I can hear the background noise in the recording. I have never had this problem on any other PC.
I am listening to iTunes, Soundforge and any other program that has audio.
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 have a Probook 4720s with Windows 7 Pro. Connecting my laptop to the TV with a HDMI cable worked fine then suddenly the next time I did this I had no sound and when I right click the sound Icon I noticed it read ATI High Definition Audio device not plugged in. It worked once and now it won't, I miss it. The driver is up to date.
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 doesn't always happen, but I've noticed a few times on my T440p that when I have headphones plugged in, sounds comes out of the speakers. The headphones are functional and fully plugged in, yet no sound comes out of them, and the sound comes out of the speakers. I've fixed this multiple times by unplugging the headphones and plugging them back in.
(My problem differs from this one, where sounds comes from both the headphones and speakers)....
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..

The problem is sound been very gargly and sometimes direct music audio fails. I don't won't to buy a sound card.
1. Any drivers you use? 2. Any tweaks you would recommend? 3. Can cleaning the connectors fix it?
When listeing to music using headphones/earphone the sound effects are terrible it echoes, off-pitches.It happens both while listeing youtube videos and while listeing to music/videos stored on my system. I don't remeber if i made any configuration changes in the SOUND setting from the control panel. But I cannot reset it to normal.

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.
My 2 weeks old HP Mini 200-4220tu makes random static noises (ZZZZZTT sound) when i play music/watch youtube vids.. i have installed/reinstalled idt high def audio codec from the hp website but the problem still persists.. i already performed hard reset (as i have read from other posts here: remove battery and power for a few mins) to no avail.. the static sound wont go away ...
I have a HP 15-r011dx Notebook PC with windows 8.1 and when on youtube or CNN videos, the speakers carack and pop. The commercials that CNN play prior to the story are fine as is a DVD or my loaded music. I relly do not want to reinstall. I have had the computer 3 weeks and I am not sure if it has been there from the beginning. I have updated everything from HP including BIOS and have tried a different browser and adjusted volume levels. Windows has done updates.
Can't seem to find any users of the Probook 4720s yet, it got a nice review over at: HP ProBook 4720s Review - A Review of the HP ProBook 4720s - the viewing angles looks amazing from those pics, but I wonder if it's a trick?
The problem is that the fan on my computer always stays at minimum speed and as the computer heats up, the fan will not speed up to its full speed. The computer gets really hot ~70°C. The problem occurred when I upgraded bios to its latest version F.20. I believe that there is a bug with this bios- that the bios will not control the fan properly. This type of notebook has a history of bios bugs: its original bios made the fan run all the time at full speed which was fixed with a bios upgrade.
This bios came with a note that I cannot downgrade to a previous version that worked well. So my question is, can I expect a bios upgrade for this computer that would fix the error.
lan adapter disappeared (wifi is working fine) after w7 x64 fresh install.. I tried to: install all possible drivers; reinstall w7; ubuntu.. but the leds are just blinking and device manager finds nothing. Also i am missing drivers for:
I'm having an issue with my HP Probook 4530s where sound sometimes won't play. I downloaded the approriate audio driver for my computer. If I click on an application that needs administrator permissions and the User Account Control pops up, it won't play the system sound like it normally does. If I click on the speaker icon on the bottom right and adjust the volume slider it doesn't make a sound. I've also noticed that when I stream any type of video on the internet, the video won't play until the sound works again. Sometimes the video plays with no sound, then the sound catches up. I've tried many different browsers but the issue keeps happeneing regarless.
When my computer ran Windows 7, the audio worked fine. Videos always played, and system sounds always executed on cue. My motherboard got replaced at the end of last year due to overheating so I don't think it's a hardware issue. The weird thing is that this issue isn't consistent. One minute the sound could be working flawlessly, but two minutes later the sound just stops working.
I could try and capture a video of the issue I'm having and post it on Youtube, but it's difficult since the issue is sporadic. If I do get a video of it, I'll be sure to post the link.

It had a few sound problems ( not that annoying but I'd rather get rid of them ^^ ) with my subwoofer, now and again it did some annoying sound like grzzzz when it went to the bass. I had to change the sound to the normal settings, then go back to the high definition sound. ( the one with 6 or 7 different "speakers", instead of the normal stereo one which has only 2, Left and Right. )
Sometimes, my music stopped playing "problems with the audio card" or something.
So I decided to get rid of those problems by installing the latest ( i think ) realtek audio driver.
After the installation, i realised that : 1. The sound didn't work anymore AT ALL 2. When I went in that audio sound properties, it only showed me the stereo, and I can't see the 2nd one which had a better sound quality ( more speakers, more 3d sound .. )
Anyway, I just would like to know if the weird noise coming from the subwoofer is a big problem, and if I should get it back to the shop, or if it's only a driver problem. And I also would like to know how to get my sound back, and my high quality + subwoofer aswell.
I have tried three different headphones and none of them work - when i plug in the headphones, nothing happens. I have tried rebooting. Have checkec AUDIO in the control panel, it only shows SPEAKERS but nothing there for headphones or microphones.
All of my headphones work on my other devices, so I know that the problem is not with the headphones themselves. The problem is that when I use my headphones with my laptop, everyone esle around me can hear what I'm listening to. What do I need to do?
