Internal Speaker producing all sound?

Q: Internal Speaker producing all sound?

I have this old computer which I dont use anymore, but there is something about it that left me quite confused

It has a sound card, but the external spreakers produce no sound. Instead, the internal speaker produces all the sounds (which gives terrible quality because the case is closed, and its a crappy speaker anyways). I never changed any of the computers settings, but one day it was like that and never changed back.

Any explanations (I dont use the computer and prolly wont (it doesnt even have an OS installed (ready for trash))?

Just want to figure this one out. Its an old compaq p-i with < 128 RAM (I think its like 32MB)

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

A:internal speaker dont have a sound

the case speaker doesnt rely on your sound card, all it provides is basically beeps and such. For sound from your sund card you need external speakers connected to the sound card sockets.

sound on external speaker.

Please help

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.

hope this helps!

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 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 can not get sound from my front jacks but I get sound through the internal speaker. If the rear jacks are enabled then they will work.

Device manager shows: 2 high definition audio devices (not realtek). One for the rear jacks and the other for ATPI Inernal ATPI jack. No playback device listed for the front jacks.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the devices but the front jacks wont install

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

A:HP400 sound from internal speaker and rear jacks but not front jacks

High Definition Audio Drivers are only the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound drivers. They are not the full feature drivers that the hardware drivers provide. Check HP for a correct sound driver, if available.

ATPI (ATAPI) suggests this is an old Windows XP PC that was upgraded. There may not be any better drivers than the generic ones you have now.

Also check the front panel audio connection to the motherboard (reseat the connector).

I have installed Manycam and want to use it to play through Skype.
I have set up all the Skype setting correctly.

Manycam will play video, but I cannot get it to play sound.

Can you help?


A:Manycam not producing sound

What kind of output are you trying to achieve? Your stereo-mix (what you hear), or your microphone?

Manycam itself, as far as I'm aware, doesn't support audio output itself. You will have to select your output device as either Stereo-Mix or your Microphone, in Skype, in order to achieve any audio.

If you can't find Stereo Mix, Go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices, click the 'Record' tab and you should see the Stereo Mix device. Right click, and select 'set as default device'. If it is not seen there, right click on the blank area inside the tab, and check 'show disabled devices' and 'show disconnected devices'. It should then appear, and you can mark it as your default recording device.

Hi recently I purchased JBL on stage 200iD speakers/ipod dock. Pretty decent but the remote is garbage. My laptop is Hp 2000 notebook, and the audio card is realtek HD.

The speakers worked quite well when an ipod/mp3 is docked or when connected to an ipod through the male/male adaptors (i think this is what its called), however everytime I try to plug the adaptor into my laptop (HP 2000 notebook), it produces static sounds. This only happens when I turn the speakers up, and whenever I plug/unplug the adaptor with the speakers on, it will create this weird cracking noise.

I was wondering if this is the speakers' or the laptop's problem? The speakers like I mentioned earlier, works perfectly fine when docked/connected to a music player but doesn't when connected to my laptop. Also, the static sound tends to start being produced AFTER i started playing something like a movie or music. I also realized that restarting the PC seems to temporarily fix this issue.

Since I only purchased this speakers a week ago, I could always go back and exchange for a newer one but I need to verify where the problem is from.

After googling for a while, I've read that its possible it may be interference from the other cords and/or power cords, or may be interference from wireless stuff? I have ipod/ipad connected to wifi (not near the speakers), as well as a cellphone usually a safe distance away from my speakers, and my PC is connected to wifi as well.

The day after I cleaned the pc from the dust, and noticed when I booted it up that it still makes weird sound. I think that maybe from my brothers slam it loosened or something, but idk. Here is a picture of it. On one picture you can even se the copper wire, because I think the fan loosened up. Above it is something metal and white, and above that the cpu. The fan is marked with a blue arrow, and the place that you can see the copper wire with a red arrow. How can I fix the weird sound?

For what seems like no apparent reason, my side speakers on my Logitech X-530's aren't producing any sound. I unplugged them temporarily to test out the game adapter that was included when I bought them (allows you to plus in the audio in/out from the console into the speakers), and since I plugged them back in to my computer the two side speakers are producing no sound. The speakers aren't broken, because I tested the jack in my mp3 player and they make sound, and I don't think it's the sound card because whenever I plug them in I get a notification that they were recognized, it's just that no sound comes out. I have it set (and it always has been) to 5.1 surround. The two rear speakers work, and the center and sub woofer work, just not the sides. Whats more, when I change the audio settings to 7.1, the sound test works, so they are connected to the computer. These speakers have always worked, and I've had them for 3 years now and they just now are giving me trouble. Can anyone think of a reason why they might not work now?

More than likely it is your driver and software for the sound card. Try to reinstall it.

Try the High Definition Audio Codecs driver direct from Realtek, if you haven't already.

Do you also get the noise with a headset? or is it just the speakers? which would lean toward a speaker problem.

hi everybody!

I recently reformatted a Toshiba Satellite Laptop, model M105-S3041.

Everything has been going well until I got to the audio driver. I downloaded the driver that Toshiba directed me to. It was the RealTek Audio Driver v5.10.0.5200. After I installed the driver, the laptop produced no sound.

I have checked all the levels on the audio properties: the master volume, the speaker levels, etc. All of them are up. There is nothing that is muted. I can still hear nothing.

I'm not sure if the driver that Toshiba has associated with this model of laptop is the correct driver. But I am not sure... thats why I am asking you all.

Any ideas?

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.

I built a custom desktop a couple of months ago. I have a Gigabyte Z77X-DH3 mobo inside an Antec Nine Hundred case.

Gigabyte Z77X-DH3 Manual

Nine Hundred Manual

I'm not very sharp when it comes to computer audio, but here's what I'm looking at (I think...). The mobo has integrated audio which uses the VIA VT2021 audio codec. The case also has headphone/mic inputs on the front panel. This is connected to the mobo using the provided High Definition Audio cable (as opposed to AC97). I have speakers connected to the integrated audio, and a headset connected to the front panel headphone/mic ports.

In windows, I am using the VIA HD Audio Deck software. In the advanced options menu, I have the headphones set on the "Independent Headphone" option, which makes the headphones show up as it's own device in the windows playback device menu (which is what I want), instead of showing it as the speakers. The problem is, when I make the headphones the active device, they don't play any sound. The green equalizer bars next to the device in the windows menu show the device is playing, but no sound comes from the headphones themselves. If I switch the setting in the VIA software to "Redirected Headphone", using the same port, it works fine (but it shows up as the same device as the speakers).

In the Device Manager, under "Sounds, video and game controllers", I have 3 devices listed: AMD High Definition Audio Device
High Definition Audio Device

A:VIA HD Audio Deck - Front panel headphone device not producing sound

First get rid of the High Definition Audio Device. That was probably a default device that Windows installed, before you installed either the AMD video drivers or the VIA sound drivers. Whether that is interferring with what you want to do? (or if what you want to do can be done).

I just built a new PC with a gigabyte Z77X UD5H motherboard and it has RealTek audio on it.

In the RealTek control panel, I can set the front panel headset jack to either mute the speakers (normal) or to not mute the speakers so that both the speakers and headset work.

But, if you are trying to get two different default audio playback devices at the same time, you can't do that. Windows limits you to only one default audio playback device.

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.

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.

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.

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!

A:Internal speaker problem

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.

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.

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.

Ok. For Some reason, my internal speaker on the right side is a bit messed up. Whenever I play anything, it gives off this interferring bass sound like U get from static or something. It very muffled. My left speaker is ok but my right speaker is giving off this sound. I don't know how to fix it.

I just got this laptop two days ago. I think it doing this is cause My battlefield 2 crashed and now, I can't figure out how to fix this sound thing.
This also happened yesterday but it fixed itself out somehow. I don't know what I did yesterday to fix this but earlier today, BF2 crashed and now my audio on the right internal speaker messed up.

A:Laptop Internal Speaker Messed Up

On my Windows 7 laptop, when I plug in my EXTERNAL speakers, the volume is OK, also when I Skype using my INTERNAL speaker, again the volume is quite adequate with my mp3 and audio files. BUT --- when I try to listen to my mp3 and audio files with the INTERNAL speaker, I can hardly hear anything, very weak volume. The volume bars are all on maximum, so what can I do? Strange that when I Skype using INTERNAL speaker, all is OK!

A:Volume problem when using INTERNAL speaker

What is the media player that you use to listen to MP3's? Is the volume all the way up on the media player.
Also in the system tray by the clock, you should have an icon for your sound or in Control Panel, other then the Windows Volume speaker. Here you can change volume for your internal speakers. Also, click the Windows Volume speaker and press Mixer to adjust the volume for your media player.

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)-!!
