If they are color coded, the green plug is the speaker out. Make sure the audio is not muted. If you have recently updated, or reinstalled the OS, then check that the proper audio drivers are installed. Audio driver problems are common with compaq due to the fact that the wrong drivers often indicate proper operation. Find the original driver disk, and re-install from there.

Normally the lead which has a plug the same as a headphones plug goes into the green socket on the back or sometimes the front of the PC. The speakers should then already be joined together or have a lead that plugs one into the other.

No sound is coming out of speakers, but sound drivers are installed


Hello,

It could be that the speaker is not connected properly or it has gone bad. It could also be an outdated sound driver. It's better than you update the sound driver before fixing the hardware part of it. You can use RadarSync to auto-detect the updates and you can use the same software to automatically update them without you downloading anything or something like that from the manufacturer's website.

My HP 610 laptop's inbuild speaker is not working,but with the external speaker it is working.I want to know the price of HP compaq 610 inbuild speaker.


Try the following steps:
Open your laptop carefully (look out for fragile ribbon cables) !
Check for a broken wire going to the internal speaker.
Check for a faulty contact at the audio output jack (these things have a contact which disconnects the internal speaker when a plug is connected).
Temporarily connect any speaker in the place of the internal speaker.
If the problem is still the internal speaker, remove it and go to any good audio components shop and buy an equivalent speaker.
Hope this helps.

Hi .i have hp compaq 610 laptop.my in build speakers not working.how can solve the problem.please help me.


Hello,
The inbuilt speakers on my laptop do not work. I believe the headphone input socket to be the problem because when i stick my headphones in it only works if i squeeze the laptop near the socket. The input has been quite heavily used so i'm quite certain its broken somehow. Anyway, my layman theorising has led me to the conlcusion that my laptop thinks that headphones are plugged in when they're not and so disables the speaker so maybe if i could disable the headphone input the speakers might work. I'm sorry if this sounds confusing but my computer knowledge is really, really limited. Any help would be massively appreciated. thanks

Built in speakers not working


Are you using external speakers? or internal?

EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.

INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.

Good Luck.

I want to install external speakers to my Compaq V2000


There are quite a few speakers on the market of different sound quality. I sugest you get speakers that have a built-in amplifier and you connect the powered speakers into the headphone socket on the laptop. Take you laptop to a computer shop with a CD and or DVD and test it with various speakers and then select one that suits your tastes and budget.

External speakers don't work but internal speaker works fine.


Try your speakers on another system to make sure speakers are working.

Make sure volume control on PC is not set on mute.

Make sure onboard sound is enabled in BIOS

Try re-installing the sound card driver.

If all this fails and you have a spare slot on your PC just purchase a new sound card for about $10.00 or so.
