First check where you are attaching the cables of your speakers,
then check the drivers, if they are the drivers that come up with the system

Can't get sound out of my speakers although sound registers as playing


Check that your computer isn't muted and the volume on the speakers is up. Check that the plug for the speakers is connected correctly. Check to see if the sound card that the speakers are plugged into is set as the default in the control panel. Is there any sound coming out of the front port (earphones). Try another set of speakers.

No sound coming from both speaker


There are several things that could be wrong:
Your speakers are broken
Your speakers are not turned on
The sound cable is plugged into the wrong jack
The speakers are muted in Windows
The sound drivers are not installed or are corrupt.
Your sound card is bad.
Lots to think about. First ask if your speakers were working. If so, when?
Try a system restore back to when they were working. That should fix it. IF not, proceed:
Go into the control panel and click on sounds.
Select system sounds, choose a Windows event that has a sound assigned and try to preview it. If the preview arrow is grayed out, then the sound drivers are at fault. If you have a black arrow and you click on it and it seems like it's playing, then check for mechanical problems.
If Windows thinks it's playing and it isn't, the system restore thing should fix it. Or try another set of speakers to see if your speakers have failed.

Hi,

I am assuming that the speakers are working fine. Kindly check the basic points as mentioned in the reference below :-

How to check speakers?

Play some other videos. If all videos are not working, speakers might be at fault. Unless,

Is that a .wmv or .wma file?

I am sure it has to be related with missing audio formats. Have you updated the Audio Codecs?

Have you tried running the videos in Real player or Quicktime?

Install the below mentioned Codec's :-

Download all codecs, Install and restart system.

Let me know the update.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using " Fixya ' and Have a Wonderful day!!

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in


Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

I have hooked up my "plug and play" speakers and still have no sound. My computer keeps telling me that a disc is required. Please advise


Your speakers may be "plug and play" but it seems the sound card is not. You will need to note the sound card make and model and download and install the driver from the manufacturer's web site.

DVD plays partial sound


Check your speaker connections it sounds like you have a 5.1 or higher sound system. 5.1 means left front speaker, right front speaker, center speaker, right rear speaker, left rear speaker and subwoofer.

Voices in movies all get channeled to the center speaker (you can usually hear it a bit from the right and left front speakers as well). If your center speaker is disconnected or not working, you will only hear the background sounds.

I am unable to get speakers working.


Hi,

There is small logic to resolve or to narrow down the Audio issue.

Let me explain.

First, try to play any audio file and observe if is giving any error message or it seems to playing without sound.

If it gives any error message like "No Audio/Media device installed or found", then the audio driver is not installed in the computer or the Windows Audio serviceis stopped.

If it seems to be playing without sound, then somewhere it might be muted or Sound level might be lowered.

If you are sure that all settings are okay and not Muted, then you have to check with another speakers or headphones.

If another speakers works, then the issue is with the ols speakers.

Please get back to me if you need more information on this issue.
