No sound from internal speakers

Q: No sound from internal speakers

I have no sound from the Conexant Audio, either from the internal speakers, external speakers, or USB DVD player. The sound does work through the HDMI cable attached to a TV. I have tried the original driver on the restore DVD and the latest driver. I have also done all the tests I have found on the support site, and updated to the lates BIOS (1.15). Still no sound . Any help appreciated.

I installed a internal sound card months ago when my original ports on my PC stopped working. Just recently sound started coming from my monitors built in speakers and not my sound card.
I purchased a new sound card to no avail. I still get static and no sound and control panel says device is working properly.
What is going on it has to be something simple I am looking over.
Help please.

Hello there from the Midwest! So I recently had a virus which took out one of the drivers on my computer, thus not allowing me to Start Windows Normally, in Safe Mode with Networking or anything other option. So, I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. Now, everything is running smooth, except I have not sound coming from my internal speakers. I tried going here, Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers , to which I saw that my HP Compaq DC 7800 needs troubleshooting. I right click to do troubleshooting and it finds that I need PCI Simple Communications Controller as well as the PCI Serial Port. I tried to install the fixes and that was no luck! Now my question is... What in heavens do I do? I really miss listening to my music every morning.

It looks like the first two upgrades for Win7 are BIOS and Chipset drivers and that sounds to me like a good place to start as both of these will help Windows 7 correctly identify the hardware on your computer.

I would first install the chipset drivers which are basically inf files that correctly describe the hardware configuration. A BIOS upgrade is a little more tricky if you've never done one before, I would visit the Hardware & Devices sction of this forum and post a question (re: BIOS Upgrade) there.

Don't know if there's an easy fix as it looks like a couple of things need to be updated first.
Go for the chipset drivers and see if Win 7 recognizes your hardware.

Also, one other question... did you install Windows 7 over the top of your previous operating system or did you wipe (format) the drive and do a fresh install.

Any ideas?


A:No sound from Internal speakers

Did it just stop working? did it work before?
if so you could always roll back driver if a new one was installed and check your windows update if you have it turned on automaticly then it may have downloaded a bad up date lol you never know
if these answers never helped the only thing i would say to do is check your sound card and see if it is working properly even though the headphones work it still may be a problem

Hello, since today, i don't have sound from the internal speakers, headphones or external speakers work fine! I tried reinstalling sound drivers but nothing has helped so far, can anybody help me with this? It stopped working overnight, I do use the headphones a lot so the jack gets used a lot, is this a hardware or a software issue? And what is likely to fix it since I'm not to keen on sending it in while I'm working on my bachelor's thesis for school.

Hi, erceve
If you go to the Control Panel and open up Device Manager, you should see something called Sound, video and game controllers. Open this up and right-click on the device that controls your speakers (likely Realtek) and select Properties. What is the driver version and status as listed in this Window? 
Thanks in advance,

Okay this problem is driving me slightly insane...
I actually called in a dell engineer to help fix it but he completely failed. (as expected).

Okay so the problem is:
My speakers are absolutely fully functioning, they work perfectly when a test is run on start up. I.E. they output beeping sounds.

However when the operating system loads up, there is no sound. If I use headphones it works fine, but the speakers don't output any sound on their own.

So the tech guy changed the internal speakers- still the same problem-and then checked out/updated the drivers which left us with STILL the same problem...tried it in safe mode-still the same problem.

Is there any kind of *easy* solution to this that we're missing?

I'm still waiting for a response from Dell, but don't expect anything really.

Any help would be appreciated!

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....

Dell Inspiron 3542

I was watching (and hearing), videos with the laptop at rest on top of my desk and suddenly sound went mute. I check all the typical culprits (Volume Mixer, Playback Devices, Dell Audio Sound Manager, downloaded and reinstalled latest driver, etc), but no sound. Sound does work with headphones and when I insert them the system automatically detects them and adjust volume. When I remove them the system quickly sense that and adjust the volume. So I came here and read Jimco's FAQ. Followed all the recommendations and ran the pre-boot assessment test. Sadly I can not hear the 8 tones. So now, what are my options to fix the problem?

Hello,I have recently noticed that my T480 is making "humming" sound into internal speakers when they are inactive (not playing anything). When I mute them (Fn+F1) it'll stop making humming sound immediately. I also noticed, that killing audiodg.exe (Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation) from taskmanager helps until another sound is played from speakers. It looks like audiodg.exe is unable disable it self into some kind of "inactive" mode. I'm running lastest Win10 1803 with latest drivers from Lenovo Vantage.Thank you

You can only have one default audio playback device, such as your "Speakers" (the PC's sound card and speakers) or some other device such as the USB soundbar, if it sets itself as the default audio playback device.

I'm using Windows 7 SP-1.  After my system plays audio for a while, distortion sets in.  The only way I've found to get rid of it (maybe for a day or so) is to reboot.  Driver is up-to-date.  I need someone to point me in the right direction.  Dell has been no help to date.  I think it's software related (or the driver is faulty).  Just my opinion.  Please help!!!!!!!!!!

A:M 6800: Distortion in the sound -- internal speakers

Am I correct in understanding that the problem won’t return after a day or so? If rebooting the computer corrects the problem then you are probably correct that this is just software. Just to be sure you may want to completely uninstall the audio driver and reinstall from scratch to make sure that there is no corruption there. 
The next time you notice the problem bring up task manager and see what applications and services that you have running. End task any unneeded programs and see if that helps. While in the task manager, click on the performance tab and check to see if all the system resources are being spent. Click the resource monitor button on the bottom and look at what applications are using the most resources.. it may give a clue as to what software is causing the problem.
If restarting the system corrects the problem every time this really doesn't sound like anything is defective with the hardware of the system, hopefully you will be able to find the culprit. Please let me know what you find out.

I hope someone here can solve this problem because I'm at my wits end.

I installed a Microsoft headset called "LifeChat LX-3000" with a built in microphone. I only want to use it to make online videos for my business. Everything worked fine until I unplugged the headset. I can't get any sound at all from my computer. The internal speakers and external speakers give me no sound. The only way I can hear anything is by wearing the headset. I finally gave up and uninstalled the headset, but I still can't get any sound.

Any suggestions?? Why in the world can't I get my sound back??

A:[SOLVED] No Sound Through Internal or External Speakers

First, I am assuming that you still have your speakers hooked up the female mini pin that is green.

Second, go to
Start > Control Panel > Sound and Audio Device properties

3. Click on audio tab. Default device listed should be your onboard audio or sound card. If is not selected, select it and hit apply. If nothing is in the selection box, you may have to reinstall or re-enable your audio device.

4. Click on volume tab. Make sure mute is not selected.

I've just received my Laptop back from repair and all seems to be well, I had my screen panel replaced, gpu replaced(from 570m to 670m), new hard drive and CPU fan. However the problem I seem to be having is that internal speakers are completely not working.

I can see that bolume bar in for my internal speakers is actually changing but there is no sound. My system is not muted (unless there's some secret button I'm missing out on) No matter what i try it seems that sound will not work through my internal speakers, I've plugged in my Razer headset(Kraken) that works with my other computer but is not even detected when plugged in the Audio jacks of my laptop(Doesnt even pick up the microphone) and this did work before I sent it out for repair. Sound only works through HDMI output into a TV/Monitor.

Now I'm not sure if this some software configuration that I have to do or something physical with the hardware but I would prefer to not have to send it back as it would take a month to get back to me and also the repair company states that if the problem is due to software then they will charge.

I assume it's a conflict that Realtek HD audio manager is having or something but none of my devices show up on the RealtekHD Audio Manager nor do I get a pop up when a device is detected(which is what normally would of happened)

Also when i play a song on itunes the green bar will go up and down like usual but the sound does not come out of the damn speakers. To make it more weird when I enable the Communications headphones and test them the sound comes out of the speakers and cuts out (since it is a test).i've phoned a friend of mine and he said that maybe the sound is stuck or locked on the headphones. He also thought that maybe the computer is computer is mixed up or confused with which audio device is what.

Hi there

I have an Acer Aspire laptop and bought a little bass speaker that will enhance what I currently have on my laptop.

Only problem however is that when plugging this speaker into the headphone jack my internal speakers don't play anymore.

How can I play through both my internal laptop speaker and through this external speaker at the same time.

Your help would be much appreciated!

A:Play sound through internal speakers and headphones simultaneously

For most systems dual sound is impossible. Actually I'm not sure if that is possible at all on any card at all...I've browsed around the internetz, and this is what everyone seems to say on this subject.
My advice would be if you are using your laptop for home use only, just go buy external speakers as well, as long as you have 2 sound ports. If not you can get a splitterand plug both the bass and speakers in that.
Sorry I couldn't be of much more help!

Hello,I have issue with sound on my T460s. I played blueray disk on my laptop, then sound stoped working completely from both laptop speakers and the earphone plug. Driver installs correctly since I see the Realtec high definition audio at the bottom. When I tested the sound, I see the green signal in the testing windows, but I don't hear any sound. However, if I use HDMI or Bluetooth, I can hear sound normally. I tried to unistall and reinstall Realtec sound driver, reinstall windows 10 again, using commant 'Services.mcs'..... but still it was not successful. Is there any solution to this issue, since I tried to search the forum and google, and it still failed to play sound. Thanks.

I just reloaded a laptop with XP SP2. After reload, my laptop internal and external speakers don't produce any sound. I loaded the driver from the laptop manufacturers website. And everything appears to be set correctly and working from a systems view. However - no sound from PC on boot, application, or cd or dvd play.

In Control Panel/Sound and Audio
Hardware tab - Windows says the hardware is working OK
Volume tab - All mute buttons are off/unchecked. Volume is high on all componets - PC Speaker etc.

I've also removed the driver and reloaded it. still nothing.

Is there anything else I should try? I doubt it is the motherboard.....

A:No sound from internal or external speakers after XP reload on laptop

It may not be the correct driver. There are some cases that the OS wopuld not report any abnormalities but the driver may not be the exact driver you need. Identify the sound device you need ( you can use unknown device identifier for that ) and download the apropriate driver.

Also check the microphone socket incase something got stuck in there.

Hi community,let me first explain how I assume the switch between headphones and speakers should work:I turn on music or anything esle and if no headphones are plugged in, every sound comes from the internal speakers. Now if I plug in headphones then the sound comes exclusively from the headphones. If I pull then out again the sound comes from the speakers and so on. In my case the situation is the following:If I have no headphones plugged in and turn on music, then I hear if via speakers. If I decide to continue listening to that music via headphones and plug them in, then the music continues to come from the speakers, but for example the notification sound from outlook comes from the headphones. This works vice versa.If I open, say youtube to watch a video, while having the headphones plugged in, I will hear the sound via them. If I now unplugg them, the speakers will stay silent.What can I do that if there are no external speakers plugged in (headphones etc.) every sound will be played by the internal speakers, if I plug in some sort of external speaker it comes from them and if I unplugg it it switches back to the internal speakers?Thank you very much for your help!Best regards

Once I plug my headphones in or my hearing aids bluetooth device in, it all goes south. The internal speakers continue to work as does the bluetooth, but nothing is coming out of the headphones. Since I was once in IT, this problem is unique to the jack itself. Either the jack lifted up or was pushed back and never properly tested. The hook, I just received this computer 3 weeks ago to replace a faulty HDMI out port. I was told that there would be an open ticket so if I had any problems with this computer it would be attended to. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

I recently got a new HP zBook 15 with the slim docking station and am experiencing an issue related to the speaker output. If I plug my external powered Bose speakers into the line out of the docking station I get sound out of both the external Bose speakers and the internal laptop speakers at the same time. In addition the sound from the Bose speakers sounds horrible...tinny and completely lacking any bass. If I plug the Bose speakers into the headphone jack on the side of the laptop (not the docking station) then I get great sound and ONLY the Bose speakers produce sound (which is what I want). Is there a fix to get only the external speakers to play when plugged into the docking station audio out? I've uninstalled and re-installed the Conexent ISST Audio drivers twice...no change. I've tried messing with the B&O Sound Control panel, but it doesn't have any configuration for the audio ports. I've messed around in the Windows Playback devices control panel, but can't seem to find a way to shut off the internal laptop speakers. FYI, this is a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro. All Mircosoft updates installed. All HP updates installed via the HP Support Assistant. Latest laptop BIOS installed. Help! The sound output sounds HORRIBLE through the docking station. There must be a fix.

I realize these speakers are not the best and I am fine with them.  I like the clean clutter desktop look.

Hi jc,

Welcome to the Forum.

Never seen one of these before, Try right clicking on the speaker symbol in the notification area, select Playback Devices, You should be able to select the speaker device that you want to use.
Right click enable/disable Hide/unhide
Left Click will allow you to configure the device after selecting Configure
Properties will also give you some options

I hope this helps

Hi guys, just reinstalled windows 7. everything works great, then I went to paly a file and to my surprise, no sound. Tested speakers on another device, they work. Sound card drivers are working and up to date.

When I play a media file, I can see the sound gage go. So I went in sounds, playback device, and all I see in there is my sound card, no speakers or headphones icon. Thus no sounds from speakers. Tried other headphones/speakers they also dont work on the PC.

First two screenshots are my Device Manager, third one shows my playback devices.. My wife needs this for her business and I am losing sleep over this for days now I tried everything. Any ideas?



A:Windows 7 SOUND, No Speakers in Playback device, thus no sound from speakers

Hi -

What sound card do you have?

Double-click on the HD audio device in Device Manager - what is driver and date?

Usually there is an audio codec/ drivers, e.g., IDT, Realtek, etc... that must be installed.

What are system specs - exact model number from label on back of PC, please.

Regards. . .

Hi, hope I'm posting in the right place.

I had a set of GE 2.1 speakers working well with my Sony Vaio for about a year. Recently the sound started to go in & out, I had to move the wire around a lot and tape it or hold it in a certain spot to get them to work. Then one day they stopped working altogether. Assuming it was the speakers, I went and bought a new set from Best Buy. Took them home, plugged them in... and nothing, nothing at all. So I tried the OLD speakers in another desktop computer, and they worked perfectly.

So I assumed my headphone jack was broken and was going to go about trying to get a new piece and solder it and all that, but then I'm sitting here and just realized my headphones work perfectly.

What's wrong? How come the headphones work, but 2 pairs of external speakers don't?

Thanks so much

This is what I heard. You can use matrix mode and when playing music, still get sound from all 5 speakers without a 5.1 card

With Dell Support Assist microphone test -- earphone playback is good, on-board speaker is terribly scratchy. The sound card lists as "ATI high Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC."
The laptop is Dell Studio 15 (1555) running windows 7 Professional, 236GB used, 214GB free space, Intel P8700 2.53 GHz Processor, 64 bit OS, 4GB memoryThe built-in speakers used to sound good but now they are too scratchy to understand. However the headset and external speakers (both 3.5 mm jack interface) sound good and a HDMI connected projector sounds good.
I will appreciate advice.

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.

So i just got a dell xps 13 2015 model and everything works great but the internal speakers don't work. If I move my ear close to them they have a soft tapping noise. I've tried driver uninstalls and different drives but none of them made a difference. I think it might be the hardware of internal speakers are broken somehow. I've have external speakers in the past that have done this. Also the headphone jack works fine, headphones and speakers work fine on it.

A:Internal Speakers

Hello. The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if you don't hear the tones during the test, then the speakers have failed, or the connection needs to be re-seated.
If the laptop is still under warranty, remove all media players except Windows Media Player before contacting tech support, or you could be denied warranty service on the speakers.

A:how do I know if my pc has internal speakers

Hi: No HP consumer desktop PC that I know of comes with an internal speaker. Only the business models come with those. You will need to purchase a set of PC speakers if you don't have any now.

Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this............
Just bought a zoostorm desktop pc but it hasnt come with any speakers, does this mean that it should have internal speakers and if so how would i turn them on as it isnt making any noise at all?

A:Internal speakers

I seriously doubt it`ll have internal speakers, except for the one that beeps when you boot the computer.

You`ll need to purchase some speakers. I recommend Logitech speakers, but it`s completely up to you.

I just recently got a Gateway PC and the HP 2090m. The internal speakers do not work even after installing the drivers.  Any other setup required?

A:HP 2009m internal speakers

You need to connect the audio cable: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01725955.pdf (Step 3) You need to make sure the volume on the monitor is turned up - using the buttons on the front panel. You need to make sure the PC audio is working, volume is turned up, and not muted - test with headphones using the exact same port on the PC that you are connecting the monitor to - the lime green port on the back.
