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.)

Well, there really is no option for this under the Sounds option panel, so you may not be able to do this. I have had it occur when the proper drivers were not installed. You may be able to do it with proprietary drivers.

Hi, so, I've recently bought a Creative Sound BlasterAxx SBX 8, and I've wanted to do following: Use my regular speakers plugged in as Jack (Creative A120 2.1 Speakers) and my SoundBlasterAxx in USB at the same time, like merging both outputs into one, but I also use Razer Surround and I want to merge those channels by software, but I think there's no other option :P I've also tried Virtual Audio Cable, but I don't get it's configuration process. And on a side note, is there a way to control my SoundBlaster via the touch panel on the device instead of Windows configuration?

So, can I get any help? Thank you.

Windows will only allow one default audio playback device. Thus I don't think you can do what you want.

Hi,

I have a dell studio 1555 laptop, when I have someting plugged into the jack such as headphones, the audio comes out of the jack, and not from the laptop's own internal speakers.

But when I am testing the devices in the sound settings, it lets me test for both the internal laptop speakers, and the heaphones so I know when I plug the headphones in, the hardware doesn't cut off the speakers physically.

Does anyone know how I can use both my jack and internal laptop speakers simultaneously.

In case you are wondering, I want to use the aux in the mini hi-fi in my bedroom so the sound comes out of the hifi speakers, but I want sound out of the internal laptop speakers simultaneously.

A:Use internal laptop speakers and jack simultaneously

Probably not possible without actually rewiring your headphone jack, as it has a contact tab that disconnects the speakers when headphones or external speakers are plugged in, the reason being that output voltage for headphones is a fraction of that used for the internal speakers.

I finished a new build today:

ASUS Z170 Pro-Gaming Motherboard
i5 processor
16 GB DDR4 RAM
etc. etc.
NO SOUND CARD

When I plug my logitech 5.1 Surround speakers into the rear line-out audio jack of the motherboard, it only produces sound in the left speaker (I am only using the front left/right speakers, not the full 5.1 surrount). However, when I plug the same speakers into the front headphone jack of my computer case, both speakers work!

I have tried multiple audio drivers from the ASUS product support website, still doesn't work. I have tried uninstalling all drivers, and allowing Windows 10 to automatically install the driver. This doesn't work either.

Any ideas?

Alright, so here's the problem. I just recently got this computer and plugged it into the VGA port and the sound wouldn't work. I plugged Logitech External Speakers into it and the computer didn't even acknowledge that it was there. I plugged in Headphones to see if those worked and they didn't aswell. I asked the guy who I got the computer from and he said that it (sound) would work when plugged in using HDMI. So I did that and the sound does work, but only through the TV speakers. It still doesn't acknowledge the speakers or the headphone s when plugged in. So I wen t and grabbed some other speakers I had and tried those and It still didn't recognize the speaker. My question is: How Do I Get My Computer To Recognize My Speakers? Any help would be much appreiciated.

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 PTTodd,

Welcome to the Sevenforums.

As designed it can produce sound either from headset or speakers. In most system if you connect headset then speakers won't work and vice versa.

If headset is connected then preferred audio output would be headset. Once headset is disconnected it would automatically switch to speakers.

Hope this information helps.

I want to be able to play audio through my headset and my speakers at the same time. Reason being, the "front jacks" are actually about 3/4 of the way back on the top of the case.

Hello

ive been facing a weird problem, when i connect my microphone to the mic jack (the pink one) in the back of my computer, the audio software (i recently installed VIA Audio HD) sees it as it was connected to the line in jack ( the blue one). Also i dont have any front panel jacks, but the system thinks that i have them connected. as in the screenshot:


the line in device set as default is in fact the microphone attached to the mic jack.

anyway, when i uninstall the driver and run the windows troubleshooter, the mic starts working fine, but the audio jacks isnt recognized, just the hdmi ports from my GPU.

im using an Phitronics H55-m motherboard.

any suggestions please?

In Control Panel/Sounds highlight Line IN and right click it and if you have the choice, uncheck Set As Default.
Now click the Configuration button Then Test.
You can also highlight the Microphone and do the same.

I am having a problem with running sound through hdmi from my graphics card and rear jack or headphone jack at the same time. I have to enable and disable the rear jack or headphone jack when I want to listen to headphones. I have a Nvidia 8400gs connected to my tv via hdmi and sound and video travel through the hdmi. When I enable the rear jack sound goes to the headphones but stops going to the tv while both are enabled. Is there a way to get sound to work on both at the same time? Sorry if this is a stupid question lol.

A:Can I run sound through hdmi and rear jack simultaneously?

Windows only allows one "default audio playback device" (HDMI OR Speakers). Thus if you have an HDMI cable connected it will (in most cases) automatically default to the HDMI. If the HDMI is unplugged it will default back to the "Speakers" (your sound card).

Otherwise, if you have HDMI connected you must manually switch the playback to the Speakers.

There was a 3rd party software program that would allow both in Windows XP. I don't think its compatible with Windows 7 (or Vista or Windows 8) as some of the audio functions are handled differently than XP.

I'm trying to record my cell phone messages onto my computer as mp3's. All the audio capture software i've found will do this but, not at the same time 'play' the line in audio (which i need to hear how to control my voice mail system).

I can't use a splitter on the audio as it's a crappy old phone and the output is pretty low as-is. Any suggestions for freeware or not too expensive s/w that can do this?

Tx

A:Line in record with simultaneously playback : how ?

Does your cell phone offer the speaker phone option? That's where you don't have to hold it up to your ear to hear what the other person is saying.

In a "QUIET" location free of background and movement noise not placing a mic on a hard surface for example playing back the message with the phone next to the mic eliminates the need for trying any direct plugins to the phone. The messages would be recorded by the Windows sound recorder as wav files at first where you would then use any one of a large number of freeware wav to mp3 converter programs floating around the web to make the file conversions.

C/NET has a review on one Wav to MP3 Converter to look over and give a try. This would be the type of converter to go with over simply finding them on unknown sites since this site is offering a review. That insures any downloads are free of any "unwanted" items like adbots, spybots, and be sure to uncheck any unwanted tool bar addons with any freewares as well when going to try any out.

Can't guaranty the sound quality by way of cell phone speaker to mic however. For that you would need to test the idea and adjust the input level as well as how you position both mic and phone for the best recording. The file conversion is the easiest part!

For most systems dual sound is impossible. Actually I'm not sure if that is possible at all on any card at all...I've browsed around the internetz, and this is what everyone seems to say on this subject.
My advice would be if you are using your laptop for home use only, just go buy external speakers as well, as long as you have 2 sound ports. If not you can get a splitterand plug both the bass and speakers in that.

I have a 2.1 speaker set attached to my laptop that does not have its own headphone jack. So in order to listen to headphones I have to unplug the 2.1 from the headphone jack and plug in the headphones. I tried a cheap splitter but that didn't sound good.

What I would like is something that had two jacks that allowed me to keep the 2.1 plugged in all the time in one jack and when I want to use the headphones I could just plug them into the other jack. I would like both jacks whether used together or solo to have the same sound quality as a single jack... with no degradation in sound.

Lastly, I would like to be able to mute the 2.1 (using volume control on the speaker set) and still get great controllable sound out of the jack that have the headphones plugged in.

Hello I've bought my Lenovo laptop about half a year ago. From the very beginning the headphone audio jack had some problems, there would be no sound when headphones are plugged in, however restarting the laptop usually helped. I have not had this problem for a few months until now. When I plug in headphones, no sound comes out and restarting the computer does not help. Furthermore, the sound of the laptop speakers seems to be a big different than it normally used to be - the sound is a bit lower and so to say ''dimmer''. Please let me know I could fix it.

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.

Hey guys,
I've been trying to look for a solution for this all over but I've had not much luck.

I bought a Logitech Z506 5.1 Surround Sound speaker set for Boxing day and I wanted to work them with my laptop. I know that in order to fully output the 5.1 audio I will need either a PC with 5.1 output or a USB external sound card to use with my 2.1 Laptop, but after reading around I've noticed that it is possible to mirror the audio coming from your Front left and right speakers to your Rear left and right speakers, as most audio is only available in stereo as far as I know. Does anyone know a method to perhaps allow all 5 speakers to work with just a 2.1 output (Channel Mixers etc.)? I've tried different plugins with Winamp and Foobar2000, but non of it seems to be helpful. In addition, there's a static noise coming from the center speaker, whereas the rest are fine (I tried the speakers with my desktop, which has an external 5.1 sound card from Creative)

I know my question is lengthy, but any help is appreciated. And I'm not looking to have PERFECT results, since the speakers were $60...

I'm guessing that it's probably just a compatibility issue... or just how it is, but I'm curious:

I updated my laptop from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro a while back. It started out as just a minor inconvenience, but it's getting to be very annoying. When I plug in my external speakers (via the headphone jack) or my headphones, Windows doesn't automatically switch the sound output to the headphone jack. I have to manually switch it ("Manage Audio Devices"). The same is true for the reverse, when I unplug my headphones.

Is there any way around this, or is it likely an issue with the compatibility of my sound card?

Please and thank you!

A:Headphone jack/on board speaker issue

Do you have the correct Windows 7 drivers for your Audio system? The XP drivers are not compatible and you need at a minimum Vista drivers as Vista and Windows 7 handle sound functions differently than XP.

On most newer "HD Audio" systems the jack is "auto sensing" and switches "logically". On many older PC systems that is a mechanical function with the jack.

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:

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.

Your guidance will certainly be appreciated.

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.

I purchased this desktop earlier this year.  I have updated my BIOS and sound drivers and still no sound from the internal speakers, even after restart?! Does this model even have any? So frustrating...

A:no internal speaker sound

Hi: I don't know of any HP consumer desktop PC that comes with an internal speaker, including yours. Only HP business desktop PC's have internal speakers. You will need to purchase a set of external speakers. They plug into the back port labeled # 8 in the illustration below. Figure : Back I/O ports DC input powerVGADVI-DUSB 3.0: 2USB 2.0: 2LANAudio: Line inAudio: Line outAudio: Microphone

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

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!
 

A:Internal speaker problem

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.

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.

Sure would appreciate some suggestions.

Hello! I have had no problems with the laptop's audio/speaker until I recently connected it to a MI bluetooth speaker. When I disconnected it after using, the default internal speakers and earphone jacks cannot be detected (right-click audio icon -> playback device -> default devices cannot be found) and the audio icon in the bottom right corner is always showing a red cross. I tried connecting the bluetooth speakers again and it is working fine, but after disconnection the problem came back and I couldn't enable audio of any sort. I really need to use earphones when I'm in public and can't depend on my bluetooth speakers for everything. Any help would be very much appreciated!!
