T40 laptop speakers suddenly do not make sound

They were working a few days ago. Now I get no sound. I've checked all the settings and everything there seems OK. I also tried using plug in headphones and got no sound with them either.

My pc left speaker does not work. but in other devices speaker works


click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker

volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any

further volume control settings you will need to right click on the speaker volume icon system select adjust volume


click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers select the appropriate speakers


from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand system

speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check


the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity


clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line or use a can of compressed air specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer

or if its a desktop swap the speakers around if one still does not work its either a faulty speaker or the speaker connection


hope this helps

I have Harmon Kardon AV140 connected to 6 Klipsch speakers. All of sudden I know longer have any sound coming out of my front speakers. Everything was working fine a few days ago. Did we hit a button in...


Only the front speakers failing? All others ok?

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

Go back to basics, open the manual and use test tones for speaker verification.

One speaker no sound


I just want to confirm that the solution on another page from francis 8 works perfectly ( http://www.fixya.com/support/t3709832-speakers_stopped_working_cannot ). We have two sets of Creatures in our offices, one had been shelved (by someone less persevering than me) due to this problem years ago and my set started this trouble a few days ago. Troubleshot everything, every cable, setting, combination, spare speakers etc - nothing worked. Opening the offending speaker and pulling back the metal weight behind the speaker cone was the solution for BOTH of our units.
Big smiles all around :-)
Note - When you've opened the plastic shell and loosened the speaker from its mounting, the the big round metal piece/magnet sits within the actual speaker 'cage', slightly behind the speaker cone. It's tight but movable and can be pulled all the way back as far as it can go inside it's housing, away from the speaker cone.
Not sure why it gets pulled forward, but it isn't fixed in position and so could clearly get bumped by dropping the speaker or a reasonable impact of some sort. Once bumped forward it would severely limit cone movement and therefore volume.

No sound is coming out of the laptop.


Opened the unit up recently and saw the problem: detached wire from the speaker. All it needed was a little soldering to attach the wire back to the speaker and presto! The sound was on again.

I have no sound when I play a DVD on HP Pavillion laptop..


This could be a codec issue. Try playing a DVD in VLC just be careful that it does not insert itself as the default player for everything.
