Very strange...I get sound when headphones are plugged in, but when they are not, no sound comes from the built-in computer speakers. I have had my computer for about 4 months, and the speakers worked previously; this just started within the last couple days. Any ideas?

CTO HP Pavilion dv8000 (with Media Center) XP
For some time, I've had sound from headphone jack but not from internal speakers, though when I take out the headphones, for half a second, the music continues through the speaker. HP help told me to reinstall the operating system (XP) which I was not willing to do, as I wasn't sure they knew what they were talking about (again--I've had ill experience here). So when I saw some issues here that sounded similar to mine (turn off digital output--SPDIF), I contacted them again. They determined (likely from some far away place--the grammar and spelling weren't very good, though they were very polite) that it is a hardware issue. I am loathe to send this thing away into the black hole of HP repair. The posts I read here usually had to do with VISTA, but I have XP and couldn't figure out how to do the same thing in XP (SPDIF). Any help would be great. Without some software fix, I'm liable to limp along using headphones and external speaker systems.

it seems like everyone's solution to re-install Windows... easy way out i think... but really... is it worth trying to get these speakers to work? are they very good? you can easily buy external speakers, cheap and they work fine is there anything wrong with external speakers? like you say, its really no point to in sending it away... dunno... don't just take my advice though....

To make it more weird when I enable the Communications headphones and test them the sound comes out of the speakers and cuts out (since it is a test).i've phoned a friend of mine and he said that maybe the sound is stuck or locked on the headphones.

Hi there

I have an Acer Aspire laptop and bought a little bass speaker that will enhance what I currently have on my laptop.

Only problem however is that when plugging this speaker into the headphone jack my internal speakers don't play anymore.

How can I play through both my internal laptop speaker and through this external speaker at the same time.

Your help would be much appreciated!

A:Play sound through internal speakers and headphones simultaneously

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.
Sorry I couldn't be of much more help!

Hi community,let me first explain 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?Thank you very much for your help!Best regards

I see that this is a pretty popular question on this forum by searching, but none of those methods are really working for me.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 that I think I have a SigmaTel Audio system (I'm not the best with computers, but I think it does). I use Microsoft XP.

This problem started a few months ago when I had my computer plugged into a TV through both VGA and headphone jack. Somehow the headphone male part got bent when it was in and when I unplugged it the internal speakers no longer worked, but headphones and external speakers work fine. I've searched the internet for a while for ways to fix it over the last month or so, but couldn't find anything that actually worked. This wouldn't really be a problem, but I move my laptop around a lot and live in a college dorm room and it's tough to have speakers constantly set up and connected to my laptop.

I've read a little about problems like this and it appears that I probably hit something inside the headphone jack when the plug bent that makes the computer think headphones are always plugged in (just a guess). I've tried plugging and unplugging my headphones really fast like a million times and it hasn't worked. I've reinstalled the sound drivers, reset the computer, etc. I'm kind of out of ideas. I think I may have to open up the computer, which I really don't want to do (I've done it before to install RAM and stuff, but I'm not great at it), but if t... Read more

ok, I am working on a newish HP, running Win XP. I just installed the OS, and everything works perfectly. The audio works great too,...too,...too well. I've got speakers plugged into the back, and headphones that can plug into them. The headphones work, and cancel the external speakers like they should. The external speakers, however, do not cancel the internal ones, and neither do the headphones. The internals, are eternal....It's driving me insane.

I have had this issue before, about a year ago. fifteen minutes on google, and I found the solution, which was a simple one...just not one I can remember. The solution was to reinstall the audio driver....just not THE audio driver. I had to download an obsolete one because for some reason it fixed the issue. I THINK it was HP, but I cannot remember exactly.

Anyway, I've spent the past few hours searching google with every combination of words I can think of, and have not found that same answer, just about a hundred people posting one of about 3 answers, none of which apply to me, and one is just flat out wrong.

Can someone please help me find this driver? I am pretty sure it's an HP, I know it's audio, and I know it's old, if not obsolete. This worked absolutely perfect the first time I had to do it....would have been a good idea to save the driver, don't you think?

All right, so - let's get into it.

Essentially, whether I have my headphones in or not, my internal speakers are playing music. Obviously, this countermands the entire purpose of the friggin' headphones.

I have two speaker systems, when I try to manage audio devices - one of them is the internal speakers only, one which I never use. In fact, I'm not really sure what the point of it is.



The second one is the one that I use. Its sources seem to have both the internal speakers, and the headphones jack. As such:



In effect, it seems as though the obvious solution is to have one of these be the headphones jack, alone - and the other to be the headphones jack/internal speakers, which gives me the crisp playback I desire.

It so happens, I have no idea how to bring this about.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11S, and every time i remove my headphones all sound stops working unless i restart the programme, for instance i can be listening to something off itunes, unplug my headphones and the music pauses and won't play again unless i close and reopen it. This also happens with firefox, and i presume other applications, though i have yet to try this. This is a recent development, everything worked fine until a few days ago when i deleted some old programmes i dont use, games and suchlike. I'm pretty much certain i didn't delete anything vital, though i guess its a possibility. Is there anything i can do?

Check to see if you have an IDT configuration (control) panel. Many sound systems have options for either muting or leaving the speakers on when a headset is connected.

If you don't have one or can't find it, repost on the Dell Laptop users forum. Someone there will be able to help you. http://en.community.dell.com/support...p/default.aspx

Hello,
I'll try to explain this as best as I can. I have a Compaq 8510w Workstation Laptop, and I am trying to get the internal Laptop speakers and some external speakers to work and both make sound at the same time. I have a secondary monitor that has speakers, and it's speakers connect through the headphone jack. So I would like to use the secondary monitor's external speakers, but I would also like the internal speakers in the laptop to work as well, to kinda make some version of surround sound, and just to generally boost the volume of my system. Is there a hardware or software change that I can make to make this work? I have a microphone and headphone jack in the front of the laptop, and in the back I have a green and blue jack. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you need more information I"d be more than happy to help in any way, thank you,

I'm getting only minimal sound from the internal speakers of my Latitude E6420. The volume is very low, even though it's set to the highest level. Also, the sound is tinny. It's similar to what you hear from headphones at a distance, like when someone near you is listening to headphones at a high volume, or if you take off your headphones while the audio is still playing.

Whenever I listen with headphones, the sound is great, but with the internal speakers the audio is practically nonexistent.

I've set the internal speakers as my default speakers, I've adjusted the loudness equalization, and I've reinstalled the audio drivers. I've even tried wiggling a toothpick inside the speaker jack, but nothing has resolved this issue.

Can anyone help?

Are you using the IDT driver from Dell? If not, here is the link to the Win 7 64 bit driver
Product Support | Dell US

Could be the speaker connection is bad (need reseated?). The speakers are connected by a plug in connector according to what I find in the Dell manual. That would be my "best guess" as the problem. Reseating the connector (unplug then plug back in) would be a good first start. Looks sort of complicated though.
Here is the Dell manual and it details how to access it.

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.

Hello Community, My THinkpad T410, Type 2912-45G, Windows 7 (64bit) has a problem with the speakers. Starting last monday (June 25th) my speakers stop working. When I boot the TP you can hear a static click through the speakers and it plays the windows sound for one second only. After the second you can hear another static click and the speaker stops working. Thats pretty much the way it is with all other audio content, when the TP is booted. After pressing the Mute-Button or the volume-up or volume-down buttons the speakers will resume working for a second or so (still the static click, right before this second and afterward). When I plug in my Headpones everything works fine. When I unplug my headphones, speakers do work again for another second. I allready updated my BIOS, installed and uninstalled the driver, activated the sound-card (CONEXANT 20585 HD AUDIO), tried to update the driver. But nothing worked so far. I allready checked whether the switch in the headphone jack is stuck, but I couldn't find anything. Did anyone experience the same or a similar problem? As the speakers do work for the mentioned second I assume, that the Hardware should be fine. As the headphones work properly the sound-card should be detected and istalled correctly. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out on this. Sending the TP in (it is still whitin warranty) is going to be my last option since I need the TP for work. Thank you very much.... Read more

Hi, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I had a set of GE 2.1 speakers working well with my Sony Vaio for about a year. Recently the sound started to go in & out, I had to move the wire around a lot and tape it or hold it in a certain spot to get them to work. Then one day they stopped working altogether. Assuming it was the speakers, I went and bought a new set from Best Buy. Took them home, plugged them in... and nothing, nothing at all. So I tried the OLD speakers in another desktop computer, and they worked perfectly.

So I assumed my headphone jack was broken and was going to go about trying to get a new piece and solder it and all that, but then I'm sitting here and just realized my headphones work perfectly.

What's wrong? How come the headphones work, but 2 pairs of external speakers don't?

Thanks so much

Try this:
Open control panel , click on Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices, then choose sounds and audio devices,
Click on the sounds tab, under the sounds tab, you will see a box under sounds scheme, click on it and choose windows default.
Now restart your computer for the changes to take effect..
Hope that works right for you...

My speakers were working perfectly, but my headphones weren't. It says my headphones were working when I went to Control Panel then Sound. I unplugged my speakers and tried my headphones and they still didn't work and now my speakers aren't working either.

Hi,I seem to have symptoms which are pretty common but am unable to find a cure which works! So am hoping someone can pick this up and help me to resolve.When I turn on my pc it all seems to start-up ok but It looses audio and will not play any sounds out of the speakers (which are in built into the monitor) or the USB headphones (Plantronics Audio 500).Having looked at various help sites I have learnt to run the Services.msc command and look at the Windows Audio status in Services. When I first look at this, after starting the PC, it shows that the startup type is 'automatic' but the service status is 'stopped'. Also when I look at the Sounds and Audio Device Properties it shows that both audio and voice default devices are listed as 'Modem #0 Line Playback' with no other options available (i.e. USB Audio Device - Plantronics Audio 500 or Avance AC'97 Audio for VIA ® Audio Controller).When I click on Service Status 'Start' in the Windows Audio Status, the Service Status changes to 'Started' and the audio and voice default devices in properties, change to 'USB Audio Device'.This is about as far as I've got but, even though the audio status tells me the default device is the USB, I still cannot hear anything and, when I restart the computer, it goes back to no audio devices being detected/selected.I'm a reasonable novice where PCs are concerned so apologise if this is either confusing or lacks the correct info. I have run HJT and have added the results below, apart fro... Read more

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.

Apologies in advance I am not computer savvy.

For months I have used my headphones without problem. At the weekend I unplugged them and connected my Phillips speakers which worked fine. Later that day I swapped back and the sound has vanished. I tried reconnecting the speakers and now they don't work either.

I've tried reinstalling the drivers and checking all the levels but - nothing. I get a crackle on the headphones as the plug enters but no volume.

Help! (please)

A:Sound gone after using speakers when normally use headphones.

Not enough information available in your System Specs. Also, the OS is not London, posting here suggests it is Windows 7.

I have sound through my headphones but not through my computer speakers. The speakers work fine as I tried them on another computer.... Checked the sound properties...nothing is muted and all sound is where it should be. Device manager says everything is working properly. They were working properly until a couple days ago.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

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?

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

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.

This probably is a really simple problem but I can't solve it. I run Windows XP pro. My speakers worked fine until I plugged in the headphones to use with Skype. Now sound only runs thru headphones and even if I unplug them there is no sound thru the speakers. All connections seem fine. I had the same problem on another pc and never was able to find the reason.
 

A:No sound thru speakers after using headphones

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.

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.

A:No sound from speakers or headphones

They would try to make you pay for that...

Let's take a look in the Device Manager. Open it up using the instructions here if you need help: http://cid-120d9bfa03f629fd.spaces.l...29FD!151.entry

Do you see any yellow !'s or red X's?
