Inspiron 15 7569 loses sound when USB and HDMI ports are used

Q: Inspiron 15 7569 loses sound when USB and HDMI ports are used

If I use both USB ports and the HDMI port at the same time I lose sound from the laptop. Neither of the USB ports are connected to headphones or external speakers. Is this to be expected or is there a setting I need to change?


Preferred Solution: Inspiron 15 7569 loses sound when USB and HDMI ports are used

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Inspiron 15 7569 loses sound when USB and HDMI ports are used

The HDMI ports are a sound output device. If you have something plugged in which can produce sound you should hear it there.
Try opening the Playback devices window from the speaker icon on the taskbar. You should see the HDMI listed and showing sound levels if actual sound is playing. If you don't, look for any other device which may be showing changes in sound levels. You may have to disable one type if it is getting your sound.

I have a DELL laptop, model is Inspiron 15-7569. I have updated all drivers (BIOS, Intel Graphics 520 driver, Realtek driver, etc) using the tool "DELL update", which is shipped with the laptop.
My Speaker is Vizio SB4051-C0. I used "speaker test" function on its remote, and I can hear all 5 speakers and the subwoofer working correctly.
But when I connected the laptop and vizio speaker via HDMI cable, and then played a youtube video called "5.1 Dolby Surround Test", I found that the two rear speakers and subwoffer not working. Does this mean my laptop does not support 5.1 channel over HDMI? If yes, then can I buy an external USB audio interface? I found a cheap one in ebay called "Behringer UCA202 Audio Interface". It has optical output but no HDMI output. Although my vizio speaker supports optical input, the user manual states that HDMI has better voice quality than optical.
Thanks a lot for help!

Wondering if anyone has the static and clicking noise that comes through the headphones when using their laptop. 
I bought a Inspiron 7569 few days ago and every time I have the headphones connected, there is a clicking/static coming through the headphones.  Tried every suggestion on the internet(BIOS, reinstall driver, making the registry updates).  Pretty certain it's not feedback from my phone as the noise comes through even if my phone is in another room.
Nothing seems to fix the issue.  Could someone with the same issue on this model provide any feedback?

Hello again - it's been a long time. I'm working on my Laptop now...


HP dv9330ca laptop running Vista 64-bit. NVidea GE Force 7600 video and Conexant audio. 2GB RAM.

I hooked-up the HDMI cable from the lappy to the TV (Toshiba 32DT2U or 32C110U, not sure) and had no sound through the TV, so I...
Set the sound on the lappy to digital ouput (SPDIF) in Control Panel - still no sound.
Updated video drivers (after google and HP website suggestion)- we have sound (isn't this odd??).
Updated audio drivers - sound is gone (what the...??).
Rollback audio driver - still no sound -.-
Re-install video drivers - we have sound.
Reboot - we still have sound!!
Power down Toshiba display and power back on (left the lappy on and streaming audio and video) - no more sound
Re-install video drivers - still no sound

I have rebooted after all the mentioned steps above. I am making sure that the sound is set to digital in Control Panel but it isn't helping anymore, nor is the re-install of the video drivers. I am thinking that the rollback of the audio driver suggests that I should not try re-installing the newer one, as it seemed previously to cause a conflict.

As always, your suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I have an Inspiron 13 (7368) and I was wondering if the HDMI port and the usb-c port with DisplayPort would be able to output at the same time. I want to hook up my laptop to 2 external monitors, where one is connected via the HDMI port, and the other is connected through an hdmi to usb type c dongle. Does anyone know if this is possible? Or do I just need to buy a docking station? I wanted to see if I could just use the HDMI and USB-C ports on the laptop first in order to save a few dollars.

This afternoon I had a message popping out which basically tells me my about the battery failing and it needed to be plugged into the AC for it to turn on. I got so scared. I've checked many posts about battery life and it says batteries are consumables and can just be replaced but I've checked the Dell Store completely and they don't sell this model's battery? I've only just seen power banks for laptops! I'm not pretty sure. This is my first time handling this type of problem since this is my first laptop so I'm pretty shaken. 

I don't really have anything on here, just a few offline games, movies, and pictures. But I did always make sure I didn't overcharge it. I don't even know where the battery is located! 

Any help would be great!

The service manual for your laptop is http://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/inspiron-15-7569-2-in-1-laptop_service%20manual_en-us.pdf
You have to remove the base cover. You will need a Philips head screwdriver 00 size. The screws are metric, but I have found that the 00 size is close enough.
It is not hard but it isn't easy especially for someone like you who has not done something like that before. 
You will want to make sure that the pop-up message is legitimate though.

Just purchased the Inspiron 15 7569, which seems to be having serous problems with the touchpad freezing sporadically.  
Freezing in this context means no click feedback, can move pointer, no ability to click on anything and sometimes stuck in click and hold/select mode.
The only solution at this point was to disable the HID driver and turn off double tap/drag.
Looking at the drivers installed and available for this touchpad (ACPI\SYN0609),  It seems to have only Microsoft default drivers enabled and there is no available driver from Dell under this model.
Is there an alternate driver I can use? and/or will Dell be publishing specific touchpad drivers for this device.

I have an Inspiron 15-7569, about 8 months old.  Lately I have been having intermittent issues with the power button.
Sometimes, the laptop powers up instantly when I push the button.  Other times I hold the button in and it takes a few seconds before it powers up.  Other times no matter how long I hold the button in, it doesn't power up.  I can always eventually get it to power up, but it is definitely not consistent in functioning.  
I can always hear the "click" of the button, so it seems like the button itself is doing its thing.  The laptop has never been dropped or subject to any liquid spills.  The power button has never been abused, pressed too hard, used by children etc.  I'm the only user.
I have been keeping a log of how the button works and it truly is all over the board from working instantly, to 3 seconds, to 8 seconds, to never. Repeated clicking of the button does always power the computer up, but something is not working properly. 
I know I can send the laptop in under my 1 year warranty, just wondering if any of you have had this issue or have seen it and can offer some guidance as to what may be the true root cause.  Thanks in advance!

Hi all,I have an issue with my new Inspiron 15 (7569).  If I am sitting in bed, for example, my palms put a little more pressure on the palm rests.  The enclosure actually presses down the left-click button!  This causes two separate use issues for me.  First, it makes it so that there is no "click" to the button when I want to use it (because it is already in the down position, being held by the enclosure), and second, it causes my cursor to jump around... the cursor/pointer may just be somewhere on the screen out of the way while I type, for example, but when the enclosure "presses" the left button it forces focus to wherever the pointer is at that moment.This is clearly a hardware flaw, as there should be some internal support closer to the buttons to keep the palm rests/enclosure from pressing down on the button.  
What recourse do I have at this point?  How do I know that if I exchange this for a different model I won't just have the same issue again?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 (7569) Weight on palm rest presses button.

I have this exact same issue on my Dell Inspiron 7569.  I have to hover my hands over the palm rest instead of letting them rest, like normal.  It's so annoying.  Dell, please respond to this!
UPDATE: So it's not the weight alone of wrists/palms on the palmrests that causes the problem.  I noticed that if I used a lap desk, or used the laptop on the table, the bottom of the laptop would be prevented from flexing, and the problem would not occur.  More investigation showed that I could make a track pad click by either slightly deflecting the laptop, pushing the outsides slightly down and the center slightly up.  The same behavior occurs when you use your thumbs and index fingers to squeeze slightly from both above and below the laptop, about 2 inches to the sides of the center of the trackpad.  Both of these tests emulate what's occurring when you use the laptop on your lap directly without a rigid surface to support it.
It's a hardware problem... no idea how to fix it.  Dell?

I have an Inspiron 17, with NVIDIA GeForce 845M and Intel HD Graphics 5500. Both test successfully. I also have an external monitor: Dell ST2310.
When I connect to the monitor with a USB to video adapter everything works. When I connect with an HDMI cable I can extend the desktop and video works, but I have no sound. Not from the monitor, not from the laptop, not from external speakers and not from a headset. I tested all of these separately to verify. I might understand no sound from the monitor but why would an HDMI cable kill all sound from the laptop?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

When I connect the Dell Inspiron N7110 with a HDMI cable to a Sony TV, screen shows but sound is played via the computer only. This is since Windows 10, with Windows 7 + 8 it had some quirks (we always had to switch off sound enhancements first to get it working, but it worked).
This is what I checked/tried:
Device manager: uninstalled both drivers at Audio -input and output, and also System Devices/High Definition Audio Controller, all is reinstalled after a reset
Display adapters: there are 2. Intel (R) HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M. Removed the Intel driver, which is reinstalled after a reset.
Also tried to switch off each; switching off the Intel does not change anything; switching off the NVidia stops displaying the picture on the TV as well.
It does not matter if the display is on the TV only or stretched on laptop + TV (2 screens). I can however not duplicate the screen - this does not show anything on TV when chosen.
 One remarkable thing:
On starting the NVidia installation program, it DOES show correctly HDMI: SONY TV XV . You can then press a button from there which opens the Windows Sound configuration screen where it only shows the icon of the internal speakers (yes right mouse option Show Disabled devices and Show Disconnected devices are both checked).
The problem can not be the HDMI cable. I've connected several other brands of laptops and they all work. Basically, as soon as I connect the HDMI cable, the SONY TV icon appears as a... Read more

i have just purchased a DELL Inspiron 15 5000 SERIES - 5559 with Windows 10 Pro pre-installed in Spanish. I have also purchased a DELL 24" additional screen SE2416H.
Whilst watching live internet broadcasts (TV, Youtube etc.) on Chrome, Edge or Firefox, as soon as I connect the screen to the laptop by HDMI cable, the sound on my laptop speakers disappears. Upon disconnection of the HDMI screen cable, the sound re-appears.  
However, the sound doesn't disappear when using other sound applications such as Skype. 
This means I can't enjoy watching internet TV with sound on the 24" screen.
Please advise how to fix this as the main point of purchasing the 24" screen was precisely to be able to watch (and listen to) TV programs.

I have a new Win10 Inspiron 355 that repeatedly loses internet connection while on wireless. The wireless icon in the system tray shows that it's still connected to the wireless network, but no internet access. The fix is to disconnect then immediately reconnect. But this gets tiresome to do every few minutes. (I did it 3 times while writing this.) I do not have McAfee or any third party firewall/security software--just Windows Defender. I had 3 other laptops and several mobile devices in the house, so I know the wireless works.
Here's what I have tried:

Run the Windows network troubleshooter
Upgraded the wireless adapter driver
Deactivated Power Management in the wireless adapter
Deleted the wireless connection, rediscovered it, and created a new connection
Did a hard reset on the wireless router
Flushed DNS, released and renewed ipconfig

Any advice appreciated.

I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

A:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

I've had my laptop connected to a TV through HDMI for years and it suddenly stopped working. The HDMI output is no longer listed as a playback device. It now shows spdif digital out via HP dock. The picture is fine but there is no sound. Also when you go to the playback settings screen the green lights are jumping next to the spdif which is set as default but there is no sound. I have tried everything if you do a Google search on this topic it seems like it is a common problem but there is no specific solution. I believe the HDMI playback device disappeared after the last Windows 10 update. The HDMI is not under hidden devices but it is listed under audio in the control panel.

When I try to put my Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop into sleep mode, the screen goes dark and it looks like it's going to sleep. But the power button stays lit, and the two small outer edge lights on the front display stay lit. I can hear the motor whirring too, and it's clear the laptop is actually on and using/losing power. I am unable to get it out of sleep mode. A long press of the power button will get the computer powered up, but I am immediately taken to the "Windows did not shut down correctly" screen, and given the option to start windows normally or in safe mode.

To fix the problem, I've tried doing a system restore to a restore point before the problem started. That didn't fix it. Today I scanned the hard drive, motherboard and various other hardware, and everything passed. I did a virus scan and no threats were found. Any ideas what's going on and what I can do to fix the issue?

Specs for the laptop: Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1, 64 bit, 6 GB RAM, Inter Core i5.

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 does not go into sleep mode, loses power

How long has the problem been going on? If it's within the time you have available System Restore point try rolling it back.

Sleep problems are mostly Display driver issues, so make sure your driver is up to date: First enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to run all Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until there are no more when you check..

Then check the Dell Support page for your Tag number to try the latest driver there.

If all available drivers don't work, then work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums.

Establish a Clean Boot, check for errors at time of Sleep in logs, utilize System Resources from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

You can troubleshoot Sleep issues in Power Options by setting Sleep to 1 minute and Hibernate to 2 minutes to observe these timeouts behavior. I'd also try manually Sleeping and Hibernating from the Shut Down button. You want to test Hibernate too because it is an even better method to Sleep.

If all else fails trace the cause by Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

This started happening occasionally. Now it happens more frequently. If I leave my machine on overnight (or for an extended period of time) It will lose internet connection.

I am currently doing research to figure out what my Laptop can do to support 120Hz at 1080p on an Asus VG248QE 24-Inch LED-Lit Monitor monitor. After doing some research, I've found that HDMI 1.4b, along with Display Port and DVI-D can all support 120Hz at 1080p, and with a DVI-D to HDMI 1.4b adapter, I should be able to get this.

I don't know however, what kind of HDMI port my PC has (or if they're all the same)? How can I find out whether or not the HDMI port on my laptop will support HDMI 1.4b to get the 120Hz I desire? I am currently using a customized Toshiba Qosmio X70-A.

A:Is there any possibility of using two hdmi ports from my pc

Using an addon card will almost always disable the onboard gpu. You could simply purchase a video card that has two HDMI ports. Or you could simply use the DVI port. The only difference between the HDMI port and the DVI port is that the HDMI port also supports audio. The video signal (quality) is the same as they are both a digital signal.

I recently downgraded my HP Pavilion 17-e119wm Notebook from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7. The main final issue is I can't connect to an external display. It appears the VGA and HDMI ports are not working. It may be an issue of missing drivers, but I am not sure. Can you provide assistance? Thanks.

A:VGA and HDMI Ports Not Working

Assuming the built in dispaly is working OK, then it does not make sense for a driver issue.  By stating "It appears the VGA and HDMI ports are not working" just what is happening when an external monitor or display is connected?  Are you looking in the right place to enable the second screen?Right click on a empty spot on the desktop and then pick "Screen resolution"  It should show the normal display as #1.  Click on "Detect", it should then show the extra display.  Click on the "new" display to set it up.

Over the past few years I've had most all of my  M4600  or other M series HDMI port refuse to put out a signal.  I've had several company visitors bring their Dell laptops in and if they are M series laptops will not communicate with our overhead projectors via HDMI. The projector simply says NO SIGNAL.  Yet on the same projector when I connect my E5450 it will project just fine.  This happens when using a TV using HDMI as well.
In all cases it SEES the projector or TV screen as a second monitor.  I've popped open the PROJECT app and told it to MIRROR the screens.  I can see the monitor add itself to DEVICE MANAGER when plugging in the HDMI cable and see it leave when unplugging it. This happens with Windows 7 and Windows 10.
I had a an old M4600's connected it to my TV.  It worked for months on Windows 10 then suddenly would no longer put out a signal over HDMI.  Again, I can see the TV by correct name in Device Manager when it's plugged in, I tell it to MIRROR or even EXTEND the desktop and nothing happens but NO SIGNAL on the TV. I pulled out an even older M4600 one that had been offline for about a year and it worked until MS did updates.  I went through the Dell updates and Windows updates and will no longer work - NO SIGNAL.  
I put a brand new fresh Windows 10 image on the first laptop (that I had been using for months) and it no longer works - with a brand new image from MS.  I tried updat... Read more

A:HDMI Ports not working

We cannot speak to the untested Windows 10 on this 2011 PC. We have no idea what drivers Microsoft would push for Windows 10 or how they will react with this older hardware. We can only troubleshoot the ones with Windows 7. Are you using Fn + F8 to switch to the TV/projector? Also, Nvidia Optimus must be Enabled.

My 750-247c has THREE (3) HDMI ports.   I've included a picture.  It has one in line with the DVI and Displayport (which I've label 1 and have a cable plugged in already), and two lower on the chasis, which came with removable, black plastic plugs in them.   (Labeled 2 and 3.) In all the documentation for the machine, including that on HP's website, it says it has only two HDMI ports, but gives no indication what the difference might be.   I would be grateful if someone could tell me for sure what each of these three HDMI ports are for and whether the capabiliy differs among them.  Is one connected to the graphics card and the others not, or vice-versa?   See picture.   Thanks!  Michael

I see the two HDMI ports that you are talking about, and they have  the black plugs in them. Here is what I think is going on: The Intel processor has a video graphic card built-in, and these two HDMI is what you will use if  no video card is installed. But, since there is a video card installed with HDMI, DVI and PD ports, HP decided to plug those little black plastic thing there. I am sure if you pull the video card out of the computer, and plug your HDMI cable on any of those two ports, you will see video.  By doing so,  I think the limitations are clearly understandable.

I was just wondering I am considering getting the new AMD Radeon 6870 card. I currently using a HDMI 1.3 cable and I was just wondering if the 1.3 cables still work in the 1.4 port that the 6870 has?

I would think that it should be fine, but I'm not 100% sure.

I want to set up dual monitors on my computer. I have two HDMI ports; one that is on my graphics card and one on my motherboard.

The GPU port works just fine. The motherboard HDMI port does not. I did some research and learned that I need to enable that in BIOS. When I tried to do this, I found out that my USB keyboard does not work for BIOS. I did further research on this and found that I can change the settings on my Universal Serial Bus controllers to enable my USB keyboard by unchecking the "use automatic settings" box, but that box is completely grayed out.

Help me out dudes. Any solution would be appreciated.

Hello, I recently obtained a T480s and would like to know if I can connect monitors to an USB-C port and the HDMI port at the same time.The user manual of the T480s explicitly states that the HDMI port won't work with the "left"/ first USB-C port simultaneously.However, will the HDMI port work with the second (Thunderbolt compatible) USB-C port? Thanks in advance
