Look in the sound settings you may find the front panel audio and headphone have been deactivated, or try to re-install the sound drivers again, if there is any on-board audio, go into the bios settings and dissable it

good luck

Cannot get speakers to work. ear piece works but not front or rear speakers.


External speakers usually require a power source. This may be provided by USB, power adapter or sometimes batteries.

They need to be plugged in AND switched on. And the audio plug needs to be in the audio socket - easily confused with a microphone socket

If you have checked that and they still do not work, you may have damaged wiring.

One last thing. Some digital speakers require a special digital socket - although the plug is the same. Check that your speakers are analog for use with a standard audio output!

Headphone jack is broken INSIDE the port and is overriding the speakers. Can I override this override?


Or instead of having to open up your computer and messing with the mobo. Just use the control panel in to disable the headphone jack.

Pc headphone volume driver


3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack


Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack


Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -


One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)


Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.


You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.

Click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7

    Headphone jack has a piece of connector stuck in it and it is making my speakers not work how can i fix this problem?


    You will need to remove the broken piece. Power down the computer and unplug it. The only suggestion I would have is see if you get get to the jack from inside the computer and push out the broken piece with a paper clip.

    Where does the Microphone plug in to the Dell Vostro200


    Depending on the chassis-style of your Vostro 200 (Slim-line or Tower), you may have one or more options for installing a microphone.
    See below for instructions:
    A. Slim-Line Model
    There are two locations on this model (by default).
    dd21be3.jpg
    Front: You have the power button, then 2 x USB ports, 1 x Headphone jack-out, and 1 x Microphone jack-in.
    c53ea7f.jpeg
    Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
    Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in

    B. Tower Model
    There is one location on this model (by default):
    f0bc025.jpg
    Rear: There is a block of six audio connectors, looking only at the bottom 3 (red, green & blue).
    Red = Microphone jack-in Green = Speaker/Audio jack-out Blue = Audio jack-in
