no sound coming from the speakers

Q: no sound coming from the speakers

I'm having a problem audio problem. The audio on my PC was fine but suddenly, no sound was coming from the speakers. I'm using on-board sound. I've checked the connections at the back and nothing's disconnected. I tested my speakers on another PC and they're working just fine. I've updated the driver of the audio device and I've also checked the device manager but it didn't seem to detect any problems. I turned off my PC and unplugged it for a few seconds. When I turned it on again, the sound was working fine. I thought that it was just an isolated incident. Same thing happened a few days later. Is this a hardware problem, or is it something else?

Hi everyone. I have my headphones plugged in and am getting poor sound quality out of them. My computer says that the sound is coming through my speakers, but its not (its just coming through the headphones.) I've attached a picture of what the comp's showing me for reference. I've tried going to the Sound menu and making the headphones the default device, with no luck. This issue seemed to happen after I was done using Google video chat with my headphones plugged in. I am trying to get the sound quality in my headphones back to normal. They work with every other device. Please help!

I have no applications running at all in Windows. I have the system sound muted, but I still have some sound coming out of the speakers. It sounds like some talk radio. I also have all networking disabled. I have no idea where this is coming from.

How can I tell if any process on my computer is accessing the sound drivers?
 

A:Solved: computer sound muted but sound is still coming from speakers

In some cases, if the speakers are cheaply made and not sheilded, they can acutally pickup radio waves (especially if you live near a radio tower). Does the "Talk radio" continue if the speakers are on, while the computer is off?

A:Duh-Duh sound keeps coming from speakers

Keep the Volume Mixer open (right click on speaker in your taskbar> Open Volume Mixer) and watch it when the sound goes off. You should see a spike under one of the running applications in the mixer. That will tell you what's creating the sound, and we can move on from there.

Do you have any buttons on the keyboard or laptop to mute or un-mute the sound?

Go to the Control Panel and then to Sounds and Audio Devices. You should see an Audio tab, make sure the right sound card is selected and that everything else is fine like the volume levels and so on.

I was using my Dell Optiplex 210L desktop (old, but still quite useful!) and I noticed that my sound wasn't working. The only thing I installed was PaintShop Pro X2 which I found new sealed at a thift store for $2.50, but I doubt that would cause it.

What I have done:

Checked device manager, its fine
Checked volume on both windows and speakers, fine
Rebooted, didn't work

I tried booting into Lubuntu Linux, and it worked then.
 

A:No sound coming from speakers?

Nice - you have narrowed this down to a Windows issue . I would try updating the driver first or rolling it back if updating is not an option. If you go back into device manager and check the properties on your sound device is there an option to Update or Roll Back the driver to a previous version?

If that doesn't work I would try uninstalling it in device manager the right click on Sound in Device Manager and select Scan for Hardware Changes to have it detected / re-installed or just reboot.

My Altec Lansing speakers don't seem to be detected. I plug them in, but nothing happens. It was as if they weren't even there. At the moment,my sound is coming through the in built speakers and they sound terrible. I think my sound card is SoundMAX, not quite sure though as it doesn't say in the device manager.

A:Sound not coming through speakers

I agree with your assessment, it is likely your sound card. Make sure the hardware is compatible and the driver is updated: Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly.

My computer had to be restarted fresh and windows was reinstalled. This is the second time this had to be done. Every time this happens, the computer does not recognize the speakers or anything plugged into the USB connectors. The first time this happened, some guy fixed it, but I have no idea how he did it. Sound will not come from the speakers. I went to the audio section under the control panel and my speakers do not appear. How do I get the computer to recognize that I am in fact plugging things into the audio/USB connectors? Thanks for the help.

I am running Windows 98SE and recently reformatted, added more ram and a new hard drive. After all this was done, I downloaded winamp 5.1 and while the program runs, no sound will come out of my speakers. I went to the gateway suport website, entered my computer serial number and downloaded the drivers for my Soundblaster Live Sound card (model #CT4830). In the mix of changing settings, now i am unable to even open winamp and it gives me this wave output error "Another program is using your soundcard. Please change out device (in Waveout plugin configuration), switch to DirectSound output (in Winamp preferences/plug-ins/output) or get a sound card which can play multiple streams."

What in the world do I do to fix this problem?

Thanks,

I have a fairly new Gateway computer and have had several problems with it. As of a couple of days ago, I no longer have sound on my computer. None of my games have sound and I can no longer listen to the online radio stations. However, today when I was on a website, music did come out of the speaker (something the creator of the site built into his homepage). Gateway suggested I update my drivers, but none of them needed to be updated (when I attempted to update it told me I had the newest version). What can I do to see where the problem is coming from?

Hey, I've tried repairing speakers, checking for updates, switching which speakers I use, loads and loads of forums, but I can't get sound coming from the speakers, even though in the tests, they say they're fine. All my speakers/playback devices are showing, working or not, but I can't fix the problem.

I recently had to do a system restore, because of internet problems, took me ages to sort out, however the sound wasn't working before the restore anyway.

Haven't tried uninstalling/reinstalling the sound card/device yet, mainly because I only have my laptop here, if i need any disks then I'll need to wait a while to get them.

Sound does work with external speakers plugged in, so I'm starting to think I might need to get my laptop speakers fixed?

Sony Viao AR-71M is the model, I believe.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

A:Why do I not have sound coming from my speakers?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You need to reinstall your sound drivers.

If you use onboard sound then you can get the drivers from your mobo manufacturers website. If your computer is an oem such as Dell/E-machines etc, then visit the website of your computer manufacturer.

If you use a separate soundcard, then you will be able to get the drivers from your soundcard manufacturers website.

A:No sound coming from external speakers

Sounds like you may have a monitor with an HDMI connection. If this is the case, Windows automatically defaults the default audio playback device to the HDMI, if an HDMI cable is connected to the PC. If you want the PC sound you must manually change the default audio playback device to "Speakers" (PC sound). And you will likely have to do this each time you boot up. I was looking at a new monitor at either Sam's Club or Costco and decided against it as it was an HDMI connected monitor.

The Sound/Playback panel can be accessed from start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sound

Recently i had this repair on my netbook screen which was needed to be opened... then after that when it returned and opened the system (i was still using windows 7 back then) all music played...it will play, but all i can hear is that sound that you can hear from a plane engine when taking off somewhat near that sound...or when you place a microphone and a speaker near each other..a feedback i guess its called like that...so i tried to disable my build in mic which didn't solve the problem still the same...configured in my netbook software driver(realtek hd audio) and adjusted things...sometimes i can hear the music....but the feedback still is the loudest that i can hear...i tried to put my earphones to the netbook socket but still i can hear that.....

so i tried in installing win 8 (clean installation i mean all files folders etc were deleted) hoping for the problem to be solved.....but its still the same
i asked the repairman who opened my netbook to check it ...and told me its not the speakers..... its just a software problem...which i cant believe since if its software then when i installed win 8 , it should be gone...

just asking if anyone have an idea whats the problem thanks

A:weird sound.... coming from speakers

I'd say it's an electronic component died or something shorting out on the MOBO or sound card. Did you leave it in the sun or overheat somehow? Drop it? Not to imply you're not careful.

You experimented to try to fix the problem software-wise. I'd say you're gut feeling is correct. Sounds to me like he's passing the buck as we say. If it's under warrantee, get them to fix it.

Hey everyone,

I recently moved and when I got my desktop set back up I noticed that it was making an awful siren sound. I know that can be a bad MoBo or heat issue but that sound comes from the tower itself, no? This is coming only through the speakers. It's the same sound repeating and the tone goes from low to high.

I'm assuming at this point that it's software related? Does this sound right to you all? The only thing I did between taking it down, moving it and setting it up was installed a wireless card in on the the PCI slots.

The wireless card's software included an option to install a trial version of some symantec junk which I turned down but I now find some symantec stuff on my HiJack log? Related? Maybe? I'm clueless. My AV software has found nothing.

Please help.

Hi everyone, I recently discovered that I'm no longer getting any sound coming from my speakers. This I thought was strange as it was all working fine the day before. No matter if it's listening to tracks via iTunes or watching online videos via YouTube. I get no sound.

I firstly ran an "In Depth Analysis" using NOD32 antivirus, to see if there was any virus present which was capable of affecting my system. No damage seem to be reported.

My speaker system is an old Creative i-Trigue 2.1 system, which I've never used at full belt and I still always hear a little thud from the subwoofer, as I always did whenever I turned it on via the volume wheel. So I can't see how the speakers are bust.

Software I have installed are Creative's SB X-Fi Audio Processor (WDM) and Creative's Volume Panel and THX Console, which I've run tests from. The speakers still do not sound and through Device Manager it says my Driver software is up to date. I'm clueless, can anyone help?

Hey, I'm Draghy. I'm using a pair of Genius SP-S110 Speakers, which I bought about an year ago. Recently, the speakers seems to make some weird sounds when I play games, like some ocasional buzzz and then it fades. I tryed to put the headphones but it's the same thing. I even tryed all the sockets for speakers and I still get the same result. The sound doest come when there is no sound, instead, when I just sit and no sound comes from the computer, if I plug the headphones I can hear a small huming sound when the PC is silent. These things started happening about a month ago. Until then, they worked perfectly. When I listen to music in my Winamp, there is no problem with that weird sound, but if music plays from a game, then I'll get that sound.
Please, guys, I really need help. I dunno what to do but I want my speakers to be back to normal.

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...

I've tried going into properties making sure the right speaker is unmuted and made sure both speakers are balanced but still no sound from the right speaker. When i actually test my speakers, where you would expect there to be one sound coming from the left speaker, then that stops then there should be another sound in the right speaker shortly after, i get BOTH sounds coming from the left speaker. I get a loud tone the first time, then a quieter tone but still audible again in the left speaker. So my assumption is that the sound that is supposed to come from the right speaker is in the left aswel. This causes problems when i play my music because instead of sharing the sound between the two speakers, they are both being played through just the left speaker which causes crackling in sound and distortion.
Ive tested the sound when i put headphones in, and both the left and right ear speaker works, just not when i try and play from the inbuilt speakers.
I have a SgmaTel HD Audio CODEC, Vista SP2 , any help would be appreciated
 

A:Sound from both speakers coming from one speaker only

If only speaker is working on your laptop, it is possible that the right speaker itself on your laptop could already be failing and needs to be repaired. Since you tested the sound by using a headphones and the left and right works properly that means there is no problem with the driver. So my suggestion is send your laptop for repair and have the right speaker replaced.

I didn't have sound in headphones, so I used HP Support Assistant to get the right audio driver. Now sound comes out both speakers and headphones. Reading around the web, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling driver. That didn't help. I do not have an additional Sound software conflicting with it. I do not have a headset under Recording, only microphone. Looking at Sound under Control Panel, it has:Speakers and Headphones  IDT High Definition Audio CODEC - it says this even when I don't have headphones plugged inCommunications Headphones IDT High Definition Audio CODEC (Unplugged) -this option is grayed out.tia

My computer has no sound coming from the speakers. But when I put in my headset (with mic attached) I can hear the sounds from my computer. I have all my drivers installed and even ran the Drivers and Utilities disk I recieved with my computer. I ran the tests for the sound drivers and they are perfect the speakers work but why can't they work when the test isn't running. Also, I have no volume control in my notifications aka the bottom right corner next to the clock and when I go to the volume control in the start menu and open it up its all greyed out. I cant click anything because it says I have no sound device. In the system information -->components---> sound device: it says nothing its just blank.

Dell Inspiron B130
System Model: ME051
I've had this laptop for 4 years and this is the first time this has happened to me with any computer I have ever owned or used.

Please help I want to be able to listen to my music and watch youtube with volume without using a headset.

Thank You,

A:No sound coming from the speakers on my laptop

1) Have you installed the newest audio drivers? If not download them from the manufacturers website or try to run Windows Update - that might include the generic drivers
for your sound device.
2) Have you set the correct sound device? Click Start, type: sound. Then click Sound under Control Panel. Then set the default sound device.

 
 
More options:

 
3) Is the sound device disabled?

A. Right-click the speaker icon on your taskbar

B. Select "Playback Devices"

C. In the white empty space right click and select both Show Disconnected/Disabled Devices

D. Do you see icons for your speakers and headphones now?  
E. If you now see it you may need to right click on the correct sound device and select "Set as default device"

 
4) You can also try the troubleshooter below to discover any connection issues that may exist, instructions are below:

A. Click 'Start' > Select 'Control Panel'

B. Type troubleshooting in the top-right search field > Select 'Troubleshooting'

C. Click 'Hardware and Sound' > Select 'Playing Audio'.

 
5) Also go through the two pages below:

(or no volume):

 
There are many different places to adjust the sound. Are all of these turned up?

I think I have a serious problem and I'm afraid the only way to solve it is buying a new motherboard, but instead of hesitating I decided to ask for help here...

I was playing guitar using amplifier and I decided to connect the amp to the PC (amp line out - microphone front panel 3.5; using TRS cables with jack converters) and everything was working correctly of course. But then I accidentally plugged the TRS cable to the "Phones" instead of "Line out" as I did earlier, and the computer screen went weird and I heard a beeping noise, after I plugged it out I realized this move affected the speakers through the motherboard, because they became "deaf" right after. So basically every audio speaker I use is completely silent now and I hear the same constant beeping noise and no sound at all.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Absolutely no sound coming from speakers

if you buy a new motherboard - you would also need to be a new windows OS
As usually the OS is tied to the motherboard

I have 5.1 surround sound speakers and a realtek sound card, and when I do the sound test everything is fine, but when I come to play anything, the sound only comes through the front and rear speakers on the right. I have tried alot of things that I found while searching the net but still found no luck. I installed winamp and the sound comes through all speakers but is very bad quality no matter what play.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

A:5.1 - sound only coming from 2 speakers in windows 7

I'm in the same situation, but with Supreme FX-II that comes with Asus Rampage Formula. Worked just great with Win XP Prof x86. I've now tested a lot of drivers with this and with every one of them the sound comes from the rear speakers while testing, but when I try to play music with winamp or watch videos with VLC the rear speakers won't work.

I'd appreciate some help also.

Ps. I think of trying to install the old drivers in compatibility mode. Will tell if I get lucky.

Hi everyone, I bought a new computer recently and the sound doesn't seem to be working. I've tried updating the drivers, restarting the PC, downloading Windows Updates and none of them seem to work.

If anyone has a fix for this I'd be very grateful.
