Try rolling back soundcard drivers. I had the same problem when Win XP updated my soundcard drivers.

Looking for old Logitech S-100 driver


These are analog speakers and do not need a driver. First, make sure they're plugged into the speaker/headphone jack and not the microphone jack. Second, make sure the computer's sound output is enabled and set the headphone/speaker jack. Third, verify that the sound output is working by plugging in a headphone set or a different pair of speakers. If the computer sound checks out, the speaker cable is bad or the power supply is not working.

Sound coming through right headphone, but not through left. Sound also not coming through left speaker. Help?


are you adjusting sound through the windows controller or the application you're playing music through? there are a few things that could affect that, there's also the actual sound setup where you can change your setup i.e. surround sound, single speaker, headphones etc

Sound comes through only one speaker at a time.


Is the sound on both channels on a pair of headphones? If it is suspect a faulty headphone socket, especially if the speakers are cut out when the headphone jack is inserted - normally.

IMac G5 17" no sound from internal speakers and no start up gong,, OK on external speakers and headset


The first thing you should try is to hold down the keys command-option-P-R as you power up the system. That should reset the PRAM in case there is any funny muting information stuck in there. If you hear your optical drive reset more than twice and there is still no chime sounding, let go of the keys because that's not the problem.
Go to System Preferences / Sound. Choose the Output tab. It should say something like "Internal speakers, built-in." When you plug in headphones, it should switch to saying something like "Headphones, Headphone port." If (as I suspect) the output is stuck on "Headphones, Headphone port" whether the headphones are in or out, the problem is most probably a very simple mechanical problem. There is a "shorting strip" in the output jack that makes an electrical connection back to the speakers when a plug is removed, and it may be dirty, bent, or broken off. If it's not broken, it's possible to clean it and/or move it back into position with really fine gauge tools and a steady hand. If it's broken off, you're out of luck unless you want to solder a new jack onto the motherboard (I wouldn't recommend it).

Left headphone speaker and left speaker both are not working.


Probably, unless there is another setting that you have missed. Have you loaded the correct drivers for the sound card?

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue


So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.

No sound ...


Go into global settings, choose the MIDI settings and make sure the very first box is checked. I lost my sound and had a similar problem and just did some troubleshooting and once I clicked that box, my sound returned. Hope this helps.

No sound coming out of speaker, but headphone jack works!


Hi, I had the same exact problem. The speakers wouldn't work but sound came out of the headphone jack. 
To fix my problem, i opened up the subwoofer unit and checked the fuse on the circuit board which seemed fine. Then i had a look at the wiring on the other side of the circuit board and noticed one of the wiring had fried leaving a gap in the connection and exposing the copper wiring. So i just soldered the two bits of wire together. Works fine now!  I just had to be careful when i finished soldering that the exposed wire wouldn't touch any of the other connections. I insulated the wires with a glue gun to keep it all in place.
hope this helps.
