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

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

My headset is not working


Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

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.

1. check if your front panel is connected to your motherboard at proper port2. check "expert mode" on your via hd audio deck, click "advanced options" and check "redirected headphone" (THIS WILL UNCHECK "INDEPENDENT HEADPHONE") and uncheck "enable front panel jack detection"
this should solve your problem.

Welcome to the computer age. I looked up your HP W1907 monitor. It comes with a built in microphone and speakers but no audio jack for plugging in headphones. You will need to find an audio jack on your computer tower. Most new computers have audio and microphone jacks on their front face. In most cases there will be a picture of a microphone or headphones next to the jack to tell you what it is. If you can't find one on the front, look in the back. The audio jack is usually color coded green. I hope this helps you out.

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and there is no sound. the drivers have been re-installed twice. Help!


If the little speaker icon appears on the taskbar by the clock verify that it is not muted and that the volume slider is up. Connect headphones or earbuds to the front headphone jack and see if you have sound there. If so then verify your speakers are plugged in the back of the PC (green jack) and they are plugged in to AC power (if powered) and that they are on.
