Trouble with Headphones output ...

Thanx for your prompt response about the problem of the sound coming and going through the headphones. As a matter of fact, I use skype and InterVoip, so, what are your suggestions about the settings of these softwares?

Open up Skype settings and see under audio devices if Skype is allowed to adjust settings automatically. It usually is. Disable this setting. InterVoip might have something similar.

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.

HI I HAVE A DELL VOSTRO A860 AND I JUST INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 EVERYTHING IS WORKING FINE EXCEPT THE SOUND IVE DOWNLOADED VISTA DRIVERS REALTEK AND CONEXTEANT DRIVERS BUT I CANT SEEM TO GET THE SOUND TO WORK...


If you hear the sound on the headphones then the drivers installed correctly and the defect is either hardware - the jack for the headphones is stuck so the internal speakers are no longer activated when you unplug the headphones = the jack will have to be replaced by a shop - or software - you will have to go into the Realtek HD Control Panel and configure the audio outputs correctly = enable or unmute the internal speakers.
The Panel icon can be found in the notification area or in Start > Control Panel.

Headphones plugged in but sound still comes from speakers no sound from headphones


Hi,

Going by the description of the issue, I suspect that the headphones are not plugged into the correct jack.

Please check once and plug in the headphones to the black/lime green jack which has the headphone icon on it.

My headphone plug has broke of in my laptop so i have no sound output what do i do ??


Hmmm..
1. You have to use a small pair of "needle nose" pliers to get that out of the jack.

2. Invest in a set of USB headphones or Bluetooth headphones while you try to get the plug out of the jack.

USB headphones ($20 ~ $50)

Hope this helps...

Headphone Jack Problem


Go to the icon tray and double click the speaker icon. Have a look in the Advanced controls to see if you have taken the mute off the pc speaker. There might also be an option to play sound on the pc speaker simultaneously with the headphones. If so, uncheck the dual play box so the sound will not play through the pc speaker when you have the headphones plugged in.

No voices come out, sound is good, with headphones and speakers


This sounds like a problem with your connection for your headphones. Your headphone jack on your notebook is stereo, which means that you need stereo headphones to make it work. If you look at the tip of your plug on your headphone cord, it will have 1 black ring, or 2 black rings. 1 black ring is mono, 2 black rings is stereo.

If you are using stereo headphones, and you're still having this problem, your headphone plug is not going all the way into the jack on your notebook. Press the plug all the way into the jack and the problem should be fixed.

If you physically cannot push the plug all the way into the jack, there may be a problem with the jack on your notebook that will need to be looked at.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

MY laptop speakers (internal ones) have broken


Go into systems and see if there is a yellow exclamation point on the soundcard if so just update the drivers.
Also go into the control panel and check to see what the output hardware is.
Usually it's a setting if both the headphones and the speakers dont' work then it's just a matter of somthing to do with the software.
I've never heard anyone blowing their computer speakers plus if the headphones don't work then it's definatly a setting that got changed.
I have a feeling it's in the properties of sound and the output is not correct or it is empty.
Happy Holidays

Trouble with Headphones output ...


If the sound comes and goes like that and you aren't using any strange software that changes these settings (like Skype), then your soundcard is most likely dying on you. I've seen this happen on several Acer-laptops.
