Q: sound from speakers & headphones is mono NOT stereo HP 17 No...

I have a real issue with my new hp notebook 17 - windows 10. I work with playbacks and sequences and I got this new laptop to play them using both stereo channels (Left and Right). The problem is tha the output from my laptop is NOT STEREO there's some left in the right channel and there is some right sound in the left channel.... THIS A BIG PROBLEM! Can anybody help me solve this issue? This is an urgent matter for me.... HELP Please! I already use an USB Audio Card, download the latest audio drivers, anything any forum has try and that didnt solve the problem! It is unthinkable that I can use stereo output in a laptop, specially when that was the main reasin I got it!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Do these headphones sound faulty when plugged into different sources ? because if they do they have to be faulty and will need replacing ...if its only a problem in one source then the socket they are plugging into might be worn or similar .....

Hi Folks,

I have an Acer Aspire SA80-Z970 desktop computer that I purchased about 3 years ago. Some time ago I noticed that I was only getting sound out of one speaker (right hand side). Trying different speakers or the built in monitor speakers did not solve the problem. I've tried updating drivers to no avail.
I've looked at "sound effects manager - AC97 audio control panel" and everything appears to be in order. I've even tried resetting defaults. There is a "test speakers" option there that proves only one speaker is working. As far as I am aware, this PC has an onboard soundcard. I'm running windows XP and also have Ubuntu Linux loaded on a separate partition. The same problems occurs in Linux.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks

Hey,

I have the Plextor Digital Video Convertor and I have quite an old Video Camera.
I have converted the video and sound fine it's just that the Camcorder only has a Mono audio output.

How can I make the audio stereo so it can be played on a Surround Sound System?

The camera is Samsung VP-L600 and the cable I have plugs into the A/V Out and there are two connectors at the end: Yellow (Video) and White (Mono Sound). I don't want to buy another cable.

A:Make Mono Sound Stereo

There is no stereo information in a mono track, but you can simulate stereo using an audio editor such as the free Audacity:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/A basic technique is covered here:http://www.selected-audio-reviews.com/arti...o_to_stereo.htmWhat format are your video files being recorded in? The difficulty is going to be that the mono sound is incorporated into the audio layer of the video file, and extra sound would have to be added in as an overdub.If you simply want to record straight onto left and right channels, you would need to get a y-splitter lead for the audio connection, so there is two connections available. This would record two identical channels, sound would come from left and right speakers instead of just one, but there would be no stereo "surround" effect.

When I use my headphones for gaming it tries to use 5.1 sound so I end up getting no sound from the center, only my left and right. I can fix this by going into sound > playback devices and changing the speakers configuration to stereo, but I was wondering why it isn't automatically doing this when I plug them in. I don't see "Headphones" in the list of playback devices whether I plug them in the front or rear or unplug my speakers either, only "Speakers".

Also I updated my audio drivers and played around in VIA HD Audio Deck. Headphones settings don't appear there either unless I switch from "redirected headphones" to "independent headphones" but then that gives me two audio streams or whatever.

I have an HP laptop, and my sound card is (displayed using PCIutils for Windows):


Code:
Intel Corporation 7 Series / C210 Series
and I am finding difficulties in getting stereo sound from analogical headphones (plugged in with 3.5mm jack). Drivers downloaded from HP or Realtex do not work, drivers supplied by Windows (although they are Realtek drivers as well) sometimes work, I mean: speakers and headphones are shown together at the mixer, and sound from headphones is not stereo. I then go to device manager, audio input and output, and uninstall "Speakers/Headphones". I then reboot with my headphones plugged in, and, after that, the sound is stereo, and (IIRC) the mixer distinguishes between headphones and speakers.

But then things get broken back soon: one time, the windows updated the sound driver, and no stereo sound again. I uninstalled the device, rebooted, and stereo back. Then I unplugged the headphones, and windows said that no speakers were found: I restarted the audio device, speakers were found again, but stereo broken again

I think that debugging this looks tricky but, do you have any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

A:Problem getting stereo sound from headphones

I think I found a workaround. Go to C: -> Program Files -> Realtek -> Audio -> HDA. Move the mouse over the names of the files until you find, under the File Description, "Realtek HD Audio Manager" (on my computer, the file is RtkNGUI64.exe). Run that file. Under the second tab (I have it in another language, would translate to something like "listening experience" in English), uncheck the option (the option would translate to something like "improve audio" in English).

This seems to bring back stereo.

A:On-board speakers are scratchy but external speakers & headphones sound good?

Hello. As a test, switch from the IDT audio driver to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "IDT High Definition Audio Device".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the IDT driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If you get the noise while using the native driver then it is not a driver issue, which would mean there is a strong chance of speaker failure, particularly since the noise is not in headphones. If you would like to replace the speakers I can point you to the service manual.

I have a pair of stereo speakers, and because of the length of the power cord, and the length of of the 3.5mm jack cable, switching the speakers around is impossible. When I put headphones into the headphone jack in the left (or right channel) speaker, the channels are restored to their proper place. Now every time, as a result, every guy trying to murder me on the right sounds like they're on the left.

A:Mono and stereo

Go download Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) and use that.
Shouldn't be a problem to re-save your audio in stereo. Note it will still be mono, in a sense, it just sends the same signal out both left and right channels.

After you get Audacity installed and find a way to import your song (make a backup copy), if you can't figure it out, we'll take the next step.

This means I cannot record what I am hearing over speakers.

If you hear of a solution, advise. I expect this is due to the sound card rather than Windows 7 because I know of at least one person who still can record what he hears--he has a rather expensive sound card.

The big overarching problem is that I'm not hearing voices coming out of my center channel when there should be voices coming out of my center channel. For example, when playing DiRT 2 there is clearly an icon showing that someone is talking to me, but I can't hear them. This also happens during Left 4 Dead 2's intro movie, lots of ambient sound effects and music but no dialog. Odd.

I think this is being caused by a larger problem though. My motherboard is a Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4 running Realtek audio drivers and a Logitech THX 5.1 surround system plugged into the line in jacks on said mobo. Here's what's happening:
The audio manager clearly indicates when I plug in the subwoofer/center channel, rear speakers etc, but when I do the audio test I only get sound from my left and right channels.
I tried hooking up my speakers to my SPDIF out, but I get no sound at all when conducting the speaker test. The cable is good, so that's not the problem. Unlike the line in inputs, there is no indication whatsoever that I have plugged in an optical device which seems odd to me. The red light is on in the SPDIF out port which means it should be working correct?
Same deal with the coax output. No sound or indication that anything has been plugged in.
Here's where it gets more odd. When I play my games the sound comes from all speakers. All 5.1, except for the utter lack of voices from the center channel even though I can hear other sound coming from the c... Read more

First let me say that I saw the guide stickied at the top for how to properly post a request for help. But I don't know how to classify this.

The problem is I have no sound on my computer from either the speakers (part of the monitor) or the headphones. And my microphone doesn't seem to be working, but I think these two are related. I want to hear sound.

So I'm not sure what to say. I have Windows 7. I have an HP Pavilion Slimline s7320n desktop PC. My monitor is an SVA, model number 7005L. Maybe SVA isn't the brand, but it has those letters on the front.

I have tried plugging the cord that normally handles the sound into all of the jacks in the back of the tower. But I keep getting told that "No audio output device is installed." Maybe I did this simple process incorrectly. I am willing to retry it with help. I can't adjust the volume from my keyboard. Not that it matters because no sound is coming from the computer.

I'm not sure if this problem is hardware or software related. I called tech support for Windows and HP. They both wanted to charge me for them to take the equipment and repair it. But I don't think it's an equipment problem because everything runs just fine. I just can't hear anything.

I recently had a new hard drive installed. As a result, I ended up being upgraded from XP to Windows 7. The sound worked with XP.

It could be that Skype made that headset your default sound device. Most people have Microphones that come built into their computers now lately. Try uninstalling Skype and reinstalling it.
Go into your Volume Control and check to see what the name of the device it is sending the sound to. If it says its your headset when they are not plugged in, it is the headsets problem.
START>PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>ENTERTAINMENT> VOLUME CONTROL

Also try your Device manager.
RIGHT CLICK MY COMPUTER> MANAGE> "In the left side menu click DEVICE MANAGER"
Make sure that your headset is not still working even though not plugged in. Right click the name of your headset and click disable.
Hope some of this will help.
After you do this try resetting and check by playing a song or something.

This problem is not new, I have had it for several months now. On my 5 year old Dell Inspiron E1505 I have sound through my speakers but not through any headphones, I tried 3 sets of headphones in all 4 USB ports and in the pin type jack, nothing. I tried everything I know of by downloading the latest Sigma Tel Driver from Dell, going into properties, disable, then enable after reboot, select headphones over laptop speakers, etc.

Anytime I would plug my headphones in, it would automatically switch over but it just stopped all of a sudden. However I do have a conflict in my Device Manager under Network Adapters called Other Devices with a yellow question mark with a file name underneath called BCM2045 with a yellow question mark that I disabled. This showed up shortly after my headphone problem started, not sure that would have anything to do with my headphones but it seems odd.

A:No Sound through speakers but through headphones

it's HEAR, not "here" (location) for audio.

If your headphones work, the problem is NOT with your computer.
Do you have digital speakers?

On my brand new Asus laptop, I have not been able to figure out how to get sound out of my headphones when I plug them in. On my old laptop, if I plugged in the headset, sound went there automatically. Not on the new computer. The headset I have has a USB plug. I was able to get sound out of them once- by disabling the speakers, Realtek Digital Output and Realtek HMDI Output--- if I just disable the speakers, the default goes to the Digital Output and I get no sound at all, so I had to disable everything. AND, in order to get all that back, I had to do a system restore to an earlier date because I have no idea how to get them back otherwise. Please help.

A:Sound out of Speakers, not headphones

You need to select the "Speakers" as the default device if you have it set to "Digital Output" you wont get any sound at all, Go into Control Panel\Sound and rightclick on "Speakers" and select default device.

And you've updated all the drivers and everything for your speakers?

Right-click on "My Computer" and select Manage.

Then click on Device Manager does your sound card appear in there? Or is there any question marks or red crosses?

Hi,

I have the Dell XPS 8300 with the onboard Realtek HD Audio.

I can't get any sound from speakers/headphones using any of the ports at the back and the front audio jack.

The speakers are fine as I have tested them on my mobile.

I have the latest drivers installed. Sound is working fine though HDMI on my TV but i'm guessing that's using my graphics card.

I have headphones/speaker selected in sound manager. Also realtek sound manager is detecting that my speakers are connected to the audio jacks at the back and front but still no sound.

In sound manager I can see the green bar moving up/down for Speakers/Headphones.

Could the sound chip on motherboard be fried?
Thanks for you help.

When I plug my headphones into my front jack, HP m1180n desktop, they work fine however sound keep playing in my speakers as well.

How do I prevent sound from coming through both headphones and speakers at same time?
 

A:Sound comes through headphones & speakers - why?

You will have to reconfigure your motherboards sound configuration. The Audio header has to be configured for HD (Hi-Definition)... You may have to contact HP tech support to do this

I'm renting from someone living in his house with 2 other people next room over. Audio plays out of my speakers whether my head phone is plugged in or not so I know its not the head phone age. I use the front jack for the headphone. The computer doesn't list my headphone either in the available unites when plugged in. I use realtek audio device. I've been all over the manager all over screen shots of advice and de installed than re installed real tek.. Same issue. Audio from the computer, not the headphone plugged in or not and not listed on the available devices or anything.

Any ideas other than driver updates or broken jack flack would be wonderful..

A:Sound comes out of my speakers not my headphones.

Have you tried to plug the headphones into the back Audio Port?

Just to check your plugging them into the green port.
