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.)

A: No sound played trough speakers but sound works from headphones

If you are not able to listening any sound even error beep, then it seems hardware fault inside your system.
It may speaker goes faulty. You should consult your computer hardware vendor.

My friend's laptop has a weird problem. It was running vista fine, sound worked and everything. One day, the internal speakers randomly stopped emitting any sound. However, they do make sound effect sounds while the computer is booting... so they're not broken.

I figured it was a software problem, so he just reformatted and installed 7. Same problem. Makes the booting up noises, "Gamers Republic... BOOM", obviously coming from the internal speakers. Once into windows, in the HD control panel, it shows as something being plugged into the green analog input, but nothing is plugged in. So, no matter what, windows is detecting that he has speakers plugged into his laptop so it refuses to use his internal speakers.

His only option is to use headphones / external speakers.

Drivers are up to date.

Any ideas?

PC - Asus G50vt

OS - Windows 7 RC 64bit

Ram - 4 gigs

CPU - honestly, no idea. Core 2 duo something.

Sound - "Realtek HD Audio" ... That's all I know.

I just reinstalled Windows XP, and I've updated it to SP3. My audio hardware is a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS card. I reinstalled all the device drivers from the Dell resource CD as well as downloaded the latest driver for the audio card, plus I got the AC-97 codec as well. No sound comes from the speakers, which are hooked up correctly. When I run diagnostics and tests, Windows seems to miss the fact that it's not coming through the speakers. I know there's no problem with the hardware, as it functions just fine when I run linux. The strange thing is that the sound works fine when I plug the headphones into the jack.

I had originally thought it was the Multimedia Audio Controller problem so many other people seemed to have when reinstalling Windows, but after installing the Dell drivers and updating the Sound Blaster one, the Multimedia Audio Controller isn't in the "Other Drivers" tab with a big question mark next to it, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. Then someone told me he had a similar problem and was able to fix it by going into Setup and enabling audio, which I tried, but it was already enabled. So I'm stumped. Any ideas?

I'm running a Dell Dimension 8400, with a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS card, Windows XP currently Service Pack 3.
 

A:Sound works from headphones but not speakers

I'd hazard the guess that the problem still lies in the audio settings under XP inasmuch that the mic-in/headphone-out setting differs to mic-in/speakers out. Don't know your hardware but found on mine that I had to use a different audio (mini) jack-out for the speakers and then change audio settings. Do you have some additional output-mini jacks?

I checked the Device Manager and nothing is wrong, any ideas?

A:Sound won't work form Speakers but works in headphones

Hi Ezom and welcome to SF!
That is most likely no driver problem. The way you described it makes me think it's a hardware issue.
Inside the headphone jack is a "micro switch that cuts the connection to the build in speakers as soon as anything is plugged in there. Sometimes those switches get stuck (especially if one uses headphone jacks that are slightly thicker than 3.5mm.
You could try plug/unplug the headphones (or a similar plug) several times to "unstuck" the switch

Hello.

I've got a Thinkpad T430s (Windows 7) here and it's acting strangely. Namely, if I play a clip through the laptop's speakers, I hear no sound, but when I plug the headphones, everything works nice and neat.
One thing I noticed, is that computer actually recognises the sound, because the volume mixer/application, at the lower right/tray, and it's volume bar shows me the green indicators jumping up and down, as the music plays.

Of course I've tried reinstalling the drivers, I've uninstalled the audio device in Device Manager and restarted the computer. And yes, the obvious things are also checked - nothing (the applications) is muted in the volume mixer, default device is correct under playback devices.

Some have reported on the web, that it might help to use toothpick for example and "un-jam the sensor", but that didn't help either.

I've also tried booting up the newest Linux Mint (has pretty good multimedia support) from the USB and I heard no sound through speakers.

So I'm out of ideas here. It looks more and more like a hardware fault, but how can I be absolutely sure?
Thanks for helping out,

Why would speakers sound scratchy, but headphones and external cabled speakers sound OK? I have a Dell Studio 15 (1555) running windows 7 Professional.

236GB used, 214GB free space
Intel P8700 2.53 GHz Processor
64 bit OS
4GB memory

The built-in speakers used to sound good but now they are too scratchy to understand. However the headset sound is good. According to the Dell Support Assist utility, the sound card is "ATI high Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC."
Microphone test -- earphone playback is OK, on-board speaker terrible.

A:Why would on-board speakers sound scratchy but headphones sound OK?

You Dell Studio 1555 laptop uses IDT HD audio driver for the built in laptop speakers.
The ATI HD audio driver is only used if an HDMI connection to an HDMI monitor (with an HDMI audio/video cable) is used.

possibly a driver conflict with IDT audio, built-in speakers may be malfunctioning or dirty (gotta have them repaired if it's a hardware problem and not a software problem). just listing the possible causes for the scratchy sound.

I came home from college and I booted up the laptop and there was no sound what so ever so I plugged in my headhones and the sound was distorted.

The next day I came home and had the same problem but when I had the headphones in I could hear that the sound was going from distorted to normal rapidly so I just jiggled the headphone jack and It was fixed. Now today I came home as usual and same thing happens so I tried the jiggle trick from yesterday and nope it didnt work. But after a few mins It ficed itself  Now I havent got a clue whats causing this and Im getting frustrated.

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.

Then unplug headset to listen to music again, there is no sound. I can open a new browser and continue listening (jango.com). Built in speakers on a laptop. So all the suggestions above about 'is the volume muted?', 'are the speakers plugged in?', 'did the speakers get damaged?' yada yada, all don't apply. Anybody know how to get that browser to play again? I even close the tab and repopen jango in another, doesn't help. Can't play youtube, etc. All sound from that browser session is going to oblivion.

Hi, lately I've had a few problems like Skype constantly logging me off and my computer not detecting my internet but after I finally fixed those problems, my speakers stopped working. I'm not very good with computers so I looked around through the internet and tried a bunch of things like disabling/enabling the headphones, uninstalling them entirely, using different headphone jacks, and restarting my computer. though I noticed I didn't have some of the things people were talking about. for example, I don't have the realtek audio drive thing, even though i'm pretty sure I used to have itGyazo - 9999964142c8d3ec55c8fb039a940e43.png. in another post I saw about someone with a similar problem he had about 6 devices shown here-Gyazo - c738b764fe632678c3490604e187f4d1.png- and that was a good thing apparently. I have horrible with computers all the time so there might just be a really simple fix that I never noticed.

A:No audio is played at all from speakers/headphones.

Welcome to the forum.

From the first link I see you only have "High Definition Audio" which suggests you only have the generic, basic function Windows installed sound driver. If you are supposed to have Realtek it will need to be reinstalled. You should be able to get the driver from HP downloads for your specific model or you can download the driver direct from Realtek.
The Realtek High Definition Codecs can be downloaded here: Realtek

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.

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.

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.

When I first look at this, after starting the PC, it shows that the startup type is 'automatic' but the service status is 'stopped'.

Hi,

I have the following problem with new Compaq 515 with Windows 7: when headphones are connected to the headphone jack, the laptop speakers will not disable and headphones or external speakers woun't work.

The laptop recognizes headphones (test sounds are coming through) and they can be used for communications, e.g. Skype. The laptop has IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver's latest version.

Strangely, it is not possible to switch headphones as default device in control panel -> sound. The laptop has following options: Speakers/HP as default device and Headphones (RTC) appear as "Default Communications Device" when selected as default device. I'm not sure this is the problem but it seems strange enough.

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?

She found a setting once that was set to headphones only and she changed it back to speakers and they worked again but now she doesnt know where that setting is anymore. Im alot more comfortable on a desktop and have never seen this setting and i have gone through just bout everything in audio settings but still have not found this. TY in advance to anyone who can help.

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.

The sound on my computer is coming out of both the headphones and the onboard speakers. This is a new computer, right out of the box, so I don't know what exactly could be making it do this. All the drivers are up to date to my knowledge, but the computer doesn't seem to be recognizing the headphones when I put them into the jack.

Also, on a related note, if I turn up the volume high, I get high-pitched feedback.

I'm using an Asus U41S. Sound card is Realtek HD.

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.

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?

I have a Windows XP operating system. I do not get any sound out of my speakers or my headphones. I did a troubleshoot but it reaveled nothing. The other day I had system sounds coming through my speakers but today that dosen't even work. I checked to see if there was any conflicts after going into device manager. There were no conflicts at all. My sound device is on my motherboard. I do now have a seperate sound card. I have an Intel(r) 82801AA AC'97 Audio controller. In device manager it also states that I have Legacy Audio Devices. In device manager it also states that every thing is working properly. Everything I have checked verifies that the sytem is completely set for sound. I also went into setup and sound is on as well as speakers. I am sort of confused right now as to what I can do to regain sound iin my system. I hope someone can help me. Thank you.
 

A:No sound from Speakers or headphones

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...

Hi there!

I am glad that you are using Bleeping Computer as your help today!

Do you currently have an audio type named "Sigmatel"?

After you tell me this, we can diagnose the issue!

Hello guys!

Normally, I would not put such a question in a forum, as I am quite familiar with hardware, but there are unexplained situations.
My laptop model in the title came with windows 8.1, is working with 10 without any problems.

Yesterday I decided to make the creators update. Alright, it did without stress, in spite of one or another problem of hardware configuration drivers it went okay,

Then i noticied that I have no sound, neither the speakers nor the jack. I hear a punctual click and when doing mute / unmute it always clicks on the speakers, it does only in the left column, on the right it does nothing.

After doing the creators update, I made manual update to most of the drivers that there were available. I've tried all kinds of drivers from realtek and toshiba, including those from msft.

Now the strangest thing is that I did a restore from a backup one month ago, where everything worked fine and the problem remains.
I'm getting screwed because I can not find an explanation. The click on the speakers starts when windows is booting, in safe mode, being the sound service off no clicks are heard.

Even deleting the drivers and trying everyone and some more nothing works.
Eventually, if the speakers are failing, there should be sound from the headphones jack.
Has anyone had a similar experience you would like to share?

Thanks

I have a laptop and I was using my headphones fine for ages then one day I shut it down and when I opened it again the sound came from both speakers and the headphones. The laptop doesn't even recognise the headphones so that when I plug them in, nothing happens to the laptop, it just plays sound through both. It doesn't show up in the disables devices in sound and I have reinstalled the drivers but nothing works. I have tried this with all headphones and earphones in the house and the computer recognised none. It has been like this for a while now and nothing has changed.
I'm running windows 10.
the problem was sudden, nothing changed when it occurred.

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.
 

A:no sound from internal speakers but headphones ok

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....

Hello, good morning, here's the deal, "sometimes" I have no sound on my computer, I've tried updating and rollback all my audio drivers, especially Realtek ones, dozens of times, and still nothing... (Understand that my computer recognizes sound coming out of the computer, but the speakers and puggled headphones dont work...)
When I say "sometimes", I mean I only get sound if I suspend (close laptop screen) for the whole night, and when I wake up and turn it on, I have sound... BUT, if I restart the computer, I will not have sound again...

I think the problem here is not from the drivers, since the drivers I've installed before and after the "suspend" during the night, are the same, and I think its not hardware problem, since the speakers and headphones work fine after that "suspend"...

I know its not a problem of sound in the computer, for that matter, because I can get sound out of a bluetooth speaker or so.

I've tried almost everything, but maybe something is missing, or it can be a bad connection "inside" the computer, but somehow, the speakers/headphones work after the "suspend"...

I hope you guys can understand what I'm saying, or indentify my problem...

Thank you in advance and I await your response :)

Good morning!
