playing music through internal speaker in windows xp

Q: playing music through internal speaker in windows xp

I'm trying to find a way to play music through the internal speaker in windows xp. I have a sound card, etc, and regular playback works fine, but I can't find a driver/setting to route the playback to the pc speaker instead.

(my "sound card" is actually integrated into the motherboard, but the pc speaker works fine (such as with the beeps in the keyboard acessibility options)).

(background: I've hooked an LED where the internal speaker should be, so that I can see the beeps. I'd also like to be able to see when wav's (or other music) is played, but I don't want to tear apart my system and make the regular music output unusable for others)

thank you.

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.)

the "windoze beep speaker" your talking about i believe can only play a few tones so it would be horrid sound if you could route it through... and most games wouldtn work with it because there are no drivers

I am running Windows 10 Professional with current up-to-date updates on my Dell Inspiron Laptop.

Several days ago I noticed that plugging in current headset no longer muted the internal speaker. I know that it is not the headset as it works perfectly on another computer.
.
Doing a web search has not resulted in finding the problem, let alone a solution. Further my anti-virus is up-to-date, as are the microphone and speaker drivers.

Pointers in the direction of a solution will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:External Speaker Fails to Mute Internal Speaker

What audio codec does your laptop use?

It will be listed in device manager. The VEN DEV combo will be enough information.

You'll find it in the device properties details tab, specifically, the "Hardware IDs" section.

It will resemble this:

Code:
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0288&SUBSYS_10EC0191&REV_1000
Usually the audio codec chip itself will detect an external speaker is plugged in. Have you checked your audio device's configuration software? It should have a shortcut in the classic control panel.

Hi, I can't seem to get the internal speaker (the one which reports POST errors at BIOS) to beep when running Windows 10 Pro 64bit.  I can't find any incompatibility issues online.  The speaker works at BIOS (removing RAM causes it to beep) and the onboard audio works when playing through a speaker.  I have a couple of apps that should force the internal speaker to beep but nothing happens.  Can anyone suggest anything. Lenovo support say this is not their issue as hardware works. Thanks

I recently tried changing my default audio back to my installed soundcard, I have used this soundcard on many occasions without any problems, when reconnecting my webcam it made itself the default device. After disabling the audio on the webcam, and disabling the audio on the internal Realtek soundcard and enabling my soundblaster soundcard, I saved changed and restarted my computer. When I went to the sounds and audio devices in control panel, it shows "no audio device" under volume, and under audio its showing "no playback devices" and "no redording devices" "no midi playback devices" and the dropdown arrow is greyed out so I can't set up my default device. I went to hardware, and it shows both the internal and external soundcards there and that they are both working properly. The media control devices were showing a yellow exclamation mark beside them before, but after uninstalling and reinstalling everything in the sounds aand audio devices hardware tab it was corrected. I have tried going to Device manager, and uninstalling the system speakers and then clicking on "check for hardware changes" and having them be reinstalled, but it has not corrected the issue. I have no installation disc to reinstall windows xp in repair mode..... Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this problem? Also my sound recorder is also missing. I am running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002.

I apologize if this has already been addressed. I honestly don't know what I'm doing. My Vista's not playing any of the music files on my computer or my iPod on any music player I use (iTunes, WinAmp, the Rhapsody that came with it), though it plays anything else that's online. Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

I just talked to a guy who has had his speakers swiped by his brother. I told him most pc s come with an internal speaker so he should get some sound even if it is the basic beeps. He says no way without external speakers. I don't think I have ever had a pc without a internal speaker of some kind. I have even seen softeare to play mp3s, poorly, using win 3. He says his computer is two weeks old. Am I out to lunch on this? It's driving me nuts.
 

A:Internal speaker?

The "internal speaker" on many systems these days is simply a small "piezo" beeper attached to the motherboard, not like the "real" speaker that used to be fitted to older systems.

The internal speaker is controlled at BIOS level, and is not usually available to Windows as a sound output device, just a BIOS error signalling device.

So your were in to lunch, once. But lunch has changed.

A:HELP! music is playing in the background but no music program is open!

Are you close to a radio station's transmitter site and antenna? That sounds like "RFI" (Radio Frequency Interference" getting into your speaker system.

When you get it, unplug the speakers from the PC but leave them powered on and the volume up and see if you still get it. If you do it's RFI and the speaker system is picking it up or it's coming through the AC power line to the speakers. If this just started I would suspect either a bad cable ground or just a dirty plug connection somewhere in the system.

Hello,

I have Parkinson's disease so I use voice recognition software.

The problem occurs when I want to edit my dictation and I want to play back my words. It seems there is a speaker buried deep in the computer. The volume on that speaker is so low as to be almost useless.

I would like either to adjust that volume or direct the audio through my normal speakers.

I'm ignorant of computer terminology so I may have viewed the settings but not recognized them.

Your guidance will certainly be appreciated.

Thank you
 

A:Volume on internal speaker

This probably should be in the hardware forum, but here goes.

I am guessing you do not have the speakers plugged in if you are not hearing anything through them. When you plug in the speakers it will usually stop using the internal speaker. You want to plug your speakers into a like colored port on the back of the PC coming out of your sound card. It will have lots of tiny holes in it like you would plug a headset into. If it is not the same color then it will probably show you an arrow pointing out from the center.

Hi hmnah,
Do you remember making any recent changes to the computer prior to this issue?
I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:
Method 1:
Open audio troubleshooter and check if the issue occurs follow the steps in the link below:
Open the Playing Audio troubleshooter
Method 2:
Verify if the default sound device is set correctly. Follow these steps:

Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
Click the Playback tab. Make sure the correct default audio device is selected. (For most users, the default audio device is Speakers.)
If your default device isn't set to the correct audio device, on the Playback tab, select the correct device, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and make sure that Default Format is set to the value that you expect. When finished, click OK.
On the Playback tab, select the playback device, click Configure, and then make sure the configurations are set correctly.
If the sound settings are set correctly, and your speakers are already set as the default device, go to "Verify that an audio driver is installed" now.
Select the audio device that you want as the default audio device, and then click Set Default.
Click OK to save your settings.

For your reference follow the steps in the following link:
Tips for fixing common sound problems

If the above step fails follow the steps from the link:

Hi All

A couple of days ago the internal speaker on my pc stopped working for some reason. As I say in the title of this thread, I can still get sound through my headset but I would really like to restore the workings of the internal speaker.

So far I've downloaded the free DriveMax prog and checked all my drivers. There are a few out of date and one of them is for the SoundMax system that, I guess, controls the sounds - unless this is done by something else? Anyway, I downloaded and installed the newer version but then I got several message boxes come up on the reboot saying there was some sort of corruption - sorry, I can't remember what it said exactly and I can't reproduce it as I've taken the computer back using the system restore.

Can anyone help me with this please. I'm not that smart with computers as it is and even less so when it comes to drives so I'd appreciate it if someone can check the drives and possibly suggest any other checks that can be done to isolate the problem.

FYI - the pc is an hp Compaq running XPpro.

Thanks in advance.

A:Internal Speaker not Working

By way of an up date, I managed to download another copy of the driver that I said in my opening post had caused problems but this time there wasn't any sign of similar problems. However, neither was there any sign that its installation had cured my problem.

Hello. Dell does not support Win8.1 on the Inspiron 15 N5010, however, the audio should work.
Your laptop has IDT audio hardware on the motherboard, but there is not a Win8.1 audio driver available for it, so install the IDT Win7 audio driver into Win8.1, by using compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7.
If the speakers still do not work after installing the IDT driver, revert the laptop back to Windows 7 if possible.
If the speakers still do not work after reverting to Win7, test the speakers for failure by running either the audio test in the ePSA test, or by failing the color bar test in  the PSA test {Your laptop will have either the ePSA test or the older PSA test.) Instruc... Read more

Older computers had a system speaker in the bottom of the case. this speaker would just beep sounds from the CMOS like the POST beep right after boot up. Many modern computers have a set of speakers that are attached to the mother board on the inside of the case so you don't have to install speakers if you don't want to. Though there is an external speaker jack.

Hi everyone,

I have a Fujitsu NH751, Windows 7. Recently, I've encountered a problem with the audio: The background music in videos are normal, but the voices are always distant. The sound never drops off, it's just steadily distant, like the voice is coming from far away. I always use earphones, so I thought that maybe it was my headphone jack that needed to be rewired.

I decided to just get a USB soundcard. However, even with a USB soundcard, the voices are still distant. I find that whether on the USB or in my laptop's jack, as long as I don't plug the earphones all the way in (about 3/4 in) it works perfectly fine.

My system sounds have always been normal, no matter whether it's plugged all the way in or not. If I don't use earphones, my sound is perfectly fine.

I've re-installed my audio drivers, but it didn't help. I also went to Realtek's Audio Manager and made sure all the enhancements were unchecked. The USB doesn't even use Realtek, and yet it gives me the same problem. I'm wondering if this is a hardware problem, can it be fixed, and how much would it cost?

Thanks for any help!

If you are getting the same results from two audio chipsets/sound cards with the same set of headphones, I'd suspect the headphones are faulty. Test the headset in another (3rd) device. If you have the same problem, the headphones are faulty.

I suggest reinstalling the Media Player. Click Start, type Turn Windows features on and off

Uncheck the player, apply, restart Windows, recheck, apply, restart Windows.

The above may be a quick fix that won't last though?

Have you tried the free "Jet Player" - there's not much it won't play or burn and it will run circles around WMP.

On my Windows 7 laptop, when I plug in my EXTERNAL speakers, the volume is OK, also when I Skype using my INTERNAL speaker, again the volume is quite adequate with my mp3 and audio files. BUT --- when I try to listen to my mp3 and audio files with the INTERNAL speaker, I can hardly hear anything, very weak volume. The volume bars are all on maximum, so what can I do? Strange that when I Skype using INTERNAL speaker, all is OK!

A:Volume problem when using INTERNAL speaker

What is the media player that you use to listen to MP3's? Is the volume all the way up on the media player.
Also in the system tray by the clock, you should have an icon for your sound or in Control Panel, other then the Windows Volume speaker. Here you can change volume for your internal speakers. Also, click the Windows Volume speaker and press Mixer to adjust the volume for your media player.

I have this old computer which I dont use anymore, but there is something about it that left me quite confused

It has a sound card, but the external spreakers produce no sound. Instead, the internal speaker produces all the sounds (which gives terrible quality because the case is closed, and its a crappy speaker anyways). I never changed any of the computers settings, but one day it was like that and never changed back.

Any explanations (I dont use the computer and prolly wont (it doesnt even have an OS installed (ready for trash))?

Just want to figure this one out. Its an old compaq p-i with < 128 RAM (I think its like 32MB)

If it doesn't have an operating system installed, what sounds are you hearing besides the BIOS beep(s)?

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if it's possible to make the internal PC speaker beep in Windows. I'm not talking about external speakers or headphones, I'm talking about the speaker inside a desktop computer.

What I've been told is starting Windows Vista, the beep.sys file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers is replaced with a newer version that doesn't allow beeping through the internal speaker, and all beeps go through external speakers (if connected). I've also been told that in Windows XP, with no external speakers connected, Windows XP will use the internal speaker for console.beep in VB.NET, or with any error/warning message.

A few articles online said you can replace your own beep.sys file with one from Windows XP, although this will only work on 32-bit installations. I haven't tried this yet, but I do have an installation of Windows XP available. It would be even better if someone could find a way to also do this on 64-bit installations. (Maybe use the beep.sys from Windows XP x64 Edition?)

Anyway, I want the end result to be able to use console.beep on Windows Vista or newer OS and have the sound come through the internal speaker. Any suggestions?
 

A:Solved: Internal PC speaker beep

Whatever your intention, you really don't want your program to go messing around with the Windows system files. Even if it works (and I imagine you want some sort of audible alert that can't be disabled by just turning off the sound), you'd then throw anything else that expects the beep to use the headphones or connected speakers.

As to the actual answer, you'd need to send a signal to the hardware directly and I don't know how to do that. Perhaps something here can help: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread....om-PC-Internal-Speaker-(not-from-sound-card)-!!

A few days ago, i was trying to get my headphones to work. So i went into the Playback Devices menu ( When you right click the speaker icon on Windows 7) and i accidentally hit remove on the options for my internal speakers. I have no clue how to get them back and the only way i can play sound is if i use my external sound card that came with my headset and plug headphones into it. I downloaded the driver off of the Gateway website and ran the setup, but that didn't solve the problem. HELP PLEASE!!!!
 

A:Solved: Internal Speaker Problems

Go back to playback devices.
Right click an open area in the window and click
show hidden devices.
If it shows up there,you may be able to right click
and enable it.

Ok. For Some reason, my internal speaker on the right side is a bit messed up. Whenever I play anything, it gives off this interferring bass sound like U get from static or something. It very muffled. My left speaker is ok but my right speaker is giving off this sound. I don't know how to fix it.

I just got this laptop two days ago. I think it doing this is cause My battlefield 2 crashed and now, I can't figure out how to fix this sound thing.
This also happened yesterday but it fixed itself out somehow. I don't know what I did yesterday to fix this but earlier today, BF2 crashed and now my audio on the right internal speaker messed up.

A:internal speaker dont have a sound

the case speaker doesnt rely on your sound card, all it provides is basically beeps and such. For sound from your sund card you need external speakers connected to the sound card sockets.

Dell dimension e520 running win xp

there is no computer sound when pc shuts down and can't get
sound on external speaker.

Please help

A:No internal or external speaker sound

first go to control panel and check the audio option of your computer and see if the computer recognizes a sound card.

after clicking audio go ahead and check the settings. if everything is grayed out it means you don't have sound card installed, you need to check device manager and see if you have your sound card there and if see if it's installed with the correct driver.

check also if the external speakers are connected to the right audio port at the back of pc.

hope this helps!

When I turn on the computer, after about 30 minutes the interanl speaker (sometimes) starts beeping and won't stop until I turn off the computer. Also, after this happens and I re-boot, i get a message telling me to 'check system health'.
 

A:internal speaker won't stop sounding

Identify the beeps, long or short, how many and so on. Like morse code. Find out your bios manufacturer, go to there site and you should be able to find information on the beep codes.

Hey,
I have a Dell Studio 1555 Laptop with built in speakers, but I also have a pair of Harmon/Kardon speakers that plug into the headphone jack. When I plug in the speakers, it makes the sound stop playing through the computers internal speakers, only out of the Harmon/Kardon speakers. Is there any way to get the sound to play through the internal speakers and the plugged in speakers at the same time? Thanks in advance for any help :)

A:Internal + External Speaker Playback

I dont belive that there is a way to do that.
It is usually the desire to have the internal speakers stop playing when the headphone jack is used.

I did notice this in the specs.
Audio jacks (1 line-in, 2 line-out, 1 Mic-in)

Have you tried to use the line out recepticle and see if it works correctly?

I am not sure if the title accurately tells what my issue is. I hope I can explain it.

When listening to music on my PC, it does not matter if I use Winamp, Songbird, Quicktime, Windows Media Player, or any other software. Every so often, there appears some sort of distortion, like the drive that the music is on slows down. I dont know if it is the driver or what. Its hard to explain. You have to hear it. I dont think its the mp3 file itself, cause I could play a song and it will be perfect, but then the next time I play it, it will distort. It is really driving my nuts cause I can't find the reason for it.

Anybody out here got any ideas? even crazy ones? Thanks.
