Question about Compaq Audio Cards

Audio from speakers when headphones plugged in...

Hello-
I have a Compaq Presario V6700 laptop and the audio seems to not cut off from the internal speakers when I plug in my headphones. Is this something to do with the sound card? I am not quite sure what sound card I have, nor do I know where to look for the model information. I looked in the 'Hardware' tab of the Audio section in the control panel and it indicates the laptop has "Conexant High Definition Audio" but doesn't show a model number. Anything I can do other than install a different sound card?

Hello, When I connect my headset on my laptop Asus a7sv I get sound but no sound from the speakers. I have Windows Vista en I downloaded the original driver from the asus website. I tried everything....


Most headphone jacks operate as you describe. There is a switch built into the jack that diverts the audio from the speakers to the headphones for "private listening". If it didn't work this way, there would be no way that you could enjoy an audio track or other program with others having to hearing it, too.

You could get around this problem by using an external speaker set and a "splitter cable".

A splitter cable is simply a three ended cable like the one pictured above. The first end has a male plug that matches the jack on your computer - likely a stereo mini plug. The other two ends are usually the same; but the female version. You would plug the splitter into the SPEAKER jack and the laptop speakers would be silenced. Next, you would plug the the external speakers into one of the splitter jacks and then your headset would plug into the remaining splitter jack. You would connect the microphone plug into the MIC jack on the laptop.

You'll have to tinker with the sound levels as there will be feedback issues - depending on how close and loud the speakers are to the headset microphone.

Please rate this reply - and good luck!

Compaq presario. speakers wont work but headphones will


Apparently the built-in speakers have one bad. You can have the speakers replaced for you at a good computer repair shop if you cannot affort to send it in at this time.

I want sound card for compaq laptop with window xp presario v3000


Not possible. Your only alternative is to have an amplifier and speaker system and use the headphone socket as input to your sound system. This because there are no PCI slots on a laptop MB.....sodeep

If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in  speaker(s)  is/are  bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.

Sound system problem


Are you plugging into the 'LINE' output, and not the 'SPEAKER' output. The speaker output should turn off the local speakers (green jack).
