Solved: Internal Speaker Problems

Q: Solved: Internal Speaker Problems

A few days ago, i was trying to get my headphones to work. So i went into the Playback Devices menu ( When you right click the speaker icon on Windows 7) and i accidentally hit remove on the options for my internal speakers. I have no clue how to get them back and the only way i can play sound is if i use my external sound card that came with my headset and plug headphones into it. I downloaded the driver off of the Gateway website and ran the setup, but that didn't solve the problem. HELP PLEASE!!!!

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: Solved: Internal Speaker Problems

Go back to playback devices.
Right click an open area in the window and click
show hidden devices.
If it shows up there,you may be able to right click
and enable it.

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if it's possible to make the internal PC speaker beep in Windows. I'm not talking about external speakers or headphones, I'm talking about the speaker inside a desktop computer.

What I've been told is starting Windows Vista, the beep.sys file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers is replaced with a newer version that doesn't allow beeping through the internal speaker, and all beeps go through external speakers (if connected). I've also been told that in Windows XP, with no external speakers connected, Windows XP will use the internal speaker for console.beep in VB.NET, or with any error/warning message.

A few articles online said you can replace your own beep.sys file with one from Windows XP, although this will only work on 32-bit installations. I haven't tried this yet, but I do have an installation of Windows XP available. It would be even better if someone could find a way to also do this on 64-bit installations. (Maybe use the beep.sys from Windows XP x64 Edition?)

Anyway, I want the end result to be able to use console.beep on Windows Vista or newer OS and have the sound come through the internal speaker. Any suggestions?

A:Solved: Internal PC speaker beep

Whatever your intention, you really don't want your program to go messing around with the Windows system files. Even if it works (and I imagine you want some sort of audible alert that can't be disabled by just turning off the sound), you'd then throw anything else that expects the beep to use the headphones or connected speakers.

As to the actual answer, you'd need to send a signal to the hardware directly and I don't know how to do that. Perhaps something here can help: http://www.vbforums.com/showthread....om-PC-Internal-Speaker-(not-from-sound-card)-!!

I am running Windows 10 Professional with current up-to-date updates on my Dell Inspiron Laptop.

Several days ago I noticed that plugging in current headset no longer muted the internal speaker. I know that it is not the headset as it works perfectly on another computer.
Doing a web search has not resulted in finding the problem, let alone a solution. Further my anti-virus is up-to-date, as are the microphone and speaker drivers.

Pointers in the direction of a solution will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

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:

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.

I just talked to a guy who has had his speakers swiped by his brother. I told him most pc s come with an internal speaker so he should get some sound even if it is the basic beeps. He says no way without external speakers. I don't think I have ever had a pc without a internal speaker of some kind. I have even seen softeare to play mp3s, poorly, using win 3. He says his computer is two weeks old. Am I out to lunch on this? It's driving me nuts.

A:Internal speaker?

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.

Hi, Just recieved my brand new HP laptop gen 4 and am very pleased but there seems to be a 'buzzing' coming from the internal speakers when anything loud/basey is played. it seems like when a small, cheap speaker is trying to deal with a more complex range of sounds, treble middle and base at the same time. I don't know if you can help, i don't want to return it as it seems perfect. thanks in advance Bailey

A:optiplex 380 internal speaker

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:

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.

I have Parkinson's disease so I use voice recognition software.

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.

I'm ignorant of computer terminology so I may have viewed the settings but not recognized them.

Your guidance will certainly be appreciated.

Thank you

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.

A:confused by internal speaker

Older computers had a system speaker in the bottom of the case. this speaker would just beep sounds from the CMOS like the POST beep right after boot up. Many modern computers have a set of speakers that are attached to the mother board on the inside of the case so you don't have to install speakers if you don't want to. Though there is an external speaker jack.

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!

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.

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

Strange that when I Skype using INTERNAL speaker, all is OK!

What is the media player that you use to listen to MP3's? Is the volume all the way up on the media player.

A:No internal or external speaker sound

first go to control panel and check the audio option of your computer and see if the computer recognizes a sound card.

after clicking audio go ahead and check the settings. if everything is grayed out it means you don't have sound card installed, you need to check device manager and see if you have your sound card there and if see if it's installed with the correct driver.

check also if the external speakers are connected to the right audio port at the back of pc.

I have a similar problem to previous post, 28-Oct-14, title: "Headphones not being recognized correctly or playing sound". This is on my friend's Toshiba laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and the Dell headphones used to work (they are not currently detected by Windows). The same headphones work fine on my desktop computer. I don't have access to his laptop except when at the library, where his WiFi signal is poor. I'm writing this at home after verifying the headphones work on my computer. This problem seems to be fixable, I am hoping. Thanks.

Hard to troubleshoot. As a guess, I would suspect a problem with the headphone jack or the internal wiring as many I/O jacks are on a small circuit board that is connected to the main motherboard.

Dear Tech Support Guy Forums,

I am having a problem where my computer cuts out and turns off, and refuses to boot. When I attempt to boot it, the internal speaker plays a high-pitched warble.

A more descriptive account follows:

Here's what happened yesterday: The computer was on for about 7+ hours straight. I left it on while I was out at classes and such. I was playing a game and listening to some music until about 2AM. The display cut out, my computer turned off, and the internal speaker started beeping. Now, it wasn't regular, deliberate beeps with pauses or anything. It was more like a square-wave, or a warble. High pitched. I tried turning the computer off, and then back on, but every time I tried, the computer didn't even go through booting, and the warble/alarm started again. Fans reved up, screen stayed dark.

Since I was going to sleep anyway, I left the computer off, turned off the monitor and everyhing, etc.

Here's what happened today: This morning, I was absolutely groggy and had forgotten about the problem. I booted up my computer to check my e-mail, and it worked just fine. The fans were much louder than usual when they started up, but they slowed down to normal speeds and the computer ran just fine.

I started a virus scan (AVG, updated recently) and ran off to classes. The scan came up clean and the computer ran with no problems from the morning I turned it on, to about an hour ago (9 AM - 12 AM).

Hi, the problem I'm having is, whenever I play a game, any sort of game including very very low end games my computer seems to run at 100% usage (as long as its a full screen game), and after a indefinite amount of time the internal PC speaker beeps at shortening intervals until its one continuous beep. I'm not sure if the 100% usage is normal or not, but I know that the beeping isn't supposed to happen. I've tried add aware, spybot, and scanning for viruses (I actually did find a trojan, but I removed it and fixed the registry, I did what the symantec website instructed)

I'm not sure what sort of information would help most, so I'll just give some basics for now

Hi Everyone,
I was hoping to use an old dell internal speaker on T3600, and realized that the pin connector on motherboard (MB) is slightly different. The old speaker was taken from an Optiplex 745. On the 745 MB, the audio port is like one pin, space, three other pins, but on T3600 MB, the layout is three pins, space, one pin. The speaker has four cables, green,[space], black, white and red. I can plug in the speaker but it does not work properly.  
My question is if anyone knows the pinout on T3600 MB. I can then rearrange pin receptacles of the speaker to make the speaker work. 

Thank you,

Hi, I've been searching google thin and tried numerous fixes and nothing so far has worked. I just bought an used Lenovo ideapad u410 and a week later the internal speakers suddenly stopped working. External/headphones still work flawlessly, but the internal speakers won't make a sound. So far I've tried these things:Updating drivers manually.Deleting drivers and let windows update them itself.Deleting drivers and installing the default windows drivers.Checking the internal speakers is set as standard, not muted and that the jackstick isn't stuck or jammed.Restoring the computer to factory settings.Restart audio services.I probably tried some other stuff too that I forgot. When I got the computer there was windows 10 installed, so I tried to do a clean install of windows 8.1. This made the sound come back for a few days, then it disappeared again like with windows 10. I then tried upgrading back to windows 10, didn't work. Rolled back to 8.1, didn't work. I'm considering doing a clean install of windows 7 at this point, because I'm desperate.At the momemt I got 8.1 installed and I have tried installing and deleting the drivers numerous times, with no success.Anyone got any ideas as to what I can do next besides doing a clean install of windows 7?

Go to Solution.

A:Lenovo u410 no sound from internal speaker

If you right click on the speaker icon in the tray and select playback devices, do your internal speakers show up there with a Green check mark, and if not, if you right click in the Playback window and select Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices. do your internal speakers show as disabled?    If so, right click on them and select enable and then set them as the default.     Also try disabling the other playback devices (unplug them too) to see if that helps. It sounds like yoiu may have already checked that, and it is not the issue, espeically since it sounds like (no pun intented) ,that you have restored the system, but it never hurts to check.  Drivers and software aside, most sound card jacks mechanically mute the internal speakers when an external jack is pugged in, so perhaps the jack itself is broken and is not switching back to the internal speakers when the headphones are unplugged.   .

I want to replace it. I need advice & replace instruction. Please:
Is it compatible with model M100-222? I mean, yes? So, what is expert?s opinion?

I?m not some expert but I think you found the right speakers.
Every of them is fixed with one screw but you will see this when you disassemble your notebook.

Please do it carefully and if you need some help let us know.

Or maybe you know someone who can do this for you?

I have already posted this thread in the hardware section, but it may be a software issue, so I thought I'd post it here too.

I just bought some Altec Lansing BX1020 speakers and tried to plug them into my computer. But when I try to play music off of Windows Media Player (or just logging in or out, there is no windows music) it says there is a problem with my sound device. The speakers are plugged into the motherboard slot, and the computer isn't connected to the internet so it can't automatically download a driver. The speakers came with no installation CD. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Well - I'm befuddled. Yesterday, my speakers were working fine. In fact, they've always worked fine (except for a slight fuzziness at high volumes that I think is due to my KVM) and I haven't had any problems yet. My computer is connected through a KVM with Audio to another computer, and the speakers have worked well with both. Today, I boot up and can't get sound in any programs or in internet explorer. However, WindowsXP sounds like bootup-down rings and error message beeps still work - so I know its not anything with the connection to the computer. Further, both computers have the same audio problem, so it's not the KVM. However, when I click the audio adjustment by the clock, I get the following error message:

Audio Control:
There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.

This program will now close.

I rebooted and clicked audio control first thing and it opened, but I went in to IE again, had no sound, tried to open Audio Control again and got the error again. In device manager, all audio devices are fine. If I go to Sounds and Audio Devices from the control panel, it says No Audio Device - yet WindowsXP sounds still work! I have no idea what's wrong - or what to do.

I haven't included a HJT log but will if asked.

Locate the little speaker icon in your notification area (bottom right side of the screen) and double-click it, this will open XP's volume control. Make sure Mute isn't checked under Volume Control and Wave.

If that didn't work, a few things you can try.
Unplug and plug back in the speakers a few times.
Try hooking up a pair of headphones, if they work, the speakers would seem to be the problem.
Click start > run > and type devmgmt.msc and click ok. Do you see any exclamation points?
Click to expand...

I don't see any exclamation points nor do i see the speaker icon i the task bar
