Headphone jack does not work


The headphone jack on the computer connects to the sound card, a hardware device that controls audio input and output on the PC. The card contains a digital-to-analog converter that converts analog audio into digital signals and visa-versa. The performance of the headphone jack, therefore, depends on how well the sound card functions; if the card doesn't work, then the headphones connected to the PC won't output sound. Reconfiguring the audio settings will often fix problems with audio output on the headphone jack, but if the former fails to resolve the issue, replacing the sound card in its entirety is sometimes the only means of repair.
Click "Start." Enter "sound" into the search box. Select "Sound" from beneath Control Panel. Double-click "Headphones." If no "Headphones" option is available, double-click "Speakers." Click "Properties" on the General tab. Check the Device Status field for errors. Look up the message on Microsoft Support for more assistance, if applicable. Close the window if the Device Status field reads "This Device Is Working Properly." Go to the "Levels" tab. Click the speaker button to unmute the volume if the icon contains a red circle-backslash symbol. Drag the top slider to the right to increase the headphone volume. Go to the "Enhancements" tab. Check "Disable all Sound Effects." Go to Applications, and then clear "Allow Applications to Take Exclusive Control of This Device." Click "OK" to close Headphones Properties or Speakers Properties. Test the audio. If the headphones fail to output sound, unplug the headphones from the computer. Reconnect the headphones to the PC. Headphone jacks are color-coded lime green on most PCs. Look for the headphones symbol if the jacks are not color-coded. Plug the headphones into the line-out port on the back of the computer if the headphone jack on the front of the PC fails to work, or visa-versa. Test the headphones. If headphones still won't emit sound, the sound card most likely requires replacement. b> Replacing the Sound Card b> Shut down the computer. Remove the power cord from the back of the PC. Disconnect the keyboard, mouse, monitor and all other peripheral devices. Loosen the screws found on the back of the case, then slide the cover panel off of the case. Touch the chassis to protect the hardware from electrostatic discharge, or ESD. Set the computer on its side. Locate the sound card found on the opposite of the audio jacks and loosen the screw that secures the card to the computer. If no expansion card is located opposite the jacks, the computer uses an integrated sound card which can't be removed. Remove the new audio card from its protective packaging. Line up the card with an available expansion slot on the motherboard, then push the card down into the slot to install the new audio jacks. Screw the card to the computer case. Reassemble the computer. Turn on the PC. Boot in to Windows and insert the CD that came with the new expansion card. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the sound card software to the computer. Plug the headphones into the new line-out jack. Hope this helps.

The sound has stopped working on our GeoSafari LAPTOP No. 8545. Help!


Hi Lisa,
What operating system are you using?
Check that sound is enabled in both the operating system and BIOS.
Check that you have the volume turned up.
If you have an external set of speakers, try plugging them in and see if you get sound. If the external speakers use a power supply, make sure you have the speakers powered and turned on. Computer speakers almost always require power to run the internal amplifier. Computers sound output is so low that regular speakers can not be used. Also, if you have a set of headphones from an iPod or similar device try the headphones. Headphones are sensitive enough to work without power.

Audio will play on internal speakers only


Are you plugging the external speakers into the right port? Try plugging them into the Headphone port if there is no external speaker port. Make sure you have the external speakers turned on and the volume turned up. Also make sure you have the software in the computer to have the volume turned up and not muted. Check the audio sound properties and make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Click Start/Control Panel then look for Audio or Sound and check the volume.

You can also click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time to adjust the volume and check for mute.

I don't have any sound


If you actually hear sound from your laptop when playing other audio files like MP3s or audio CDs, the first thing you check if the Volume Control of the media player that you are using to watch the soaps. If these are streaming videos, look at the speaker/volume level and make sure it is set to high. Make sure as well the volume icon usually located at the bottom portion of the video playback is not turned off or muted.

If no audio at all from your computer, plug in external speakers or try headphones to see if you will get sound. If you do, most likely, your internal speakers have to be replaced. If no audio even on external speakers or headphones, check your general volume controls, set them to high and make sure none are muted, and verify that you have the correct audio controller selected for playbak.

If that still fails, reinstall your audio driver and if no improvement, most likely, you need the audio controller/motherboard replaced.

There is no audio on my labtop


  1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, You will need to install one


  1. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.

  2. Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.

  3. Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.

  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.

    On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.

  • Make sure that the speaker volume is not muted or turned down too low.

    1. Open Volume Control by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then, under Audio Devices and Sound, clicking Adjust system volume.

    2. Under Main Volume, move the slider up or down to raise or lower the volume.

    gl_ico.png Note

    Some mobile PCs have an external volume control on the outside of the case. If you're using a mobile PC, check the external volume control.

  • Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.

If these steps don't solve the problem, check the information that came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.

Hi, there really isn't any way to increase the "Volume" of Laptop speakers, the "Maximum" sound that comes out the Speakers is it.

No sound from speakers


The earplug socket in the computer is faulty, needs replacing.

What is going on is that there is a contact that the plug pushes open.
That contact for some reason is not closing when the plug is pulled out.

NO Sound when I use my headphone


There are independant controls for headphones as well as speakers. Some models have 3 ports on them, 1 for speakers, 1 for headsets and 1 for microphone aside from the cheesy one that comes with the system. There should be a sound effects manager as well as a sound and audio device option. Try the audio device option. And look around the system, there should be a control to turn up the volume!

Why our head phones on Computer are not working


Is there a switch to turn on the headphone port? Is there a control on the headphones to adjust the volume (on a volume level on the side of the laptop)? Also, when the headphones are plugged into the laptop, go into your sound settings and turn up the master volume (and wave volume if it is low.. If that works, make sure to turn it back down when disconnecting the headphones).

Also, do the headphones work in another device (stereo, etc..)?
