Go into systems and see if there is a yellow exclamation point on the soundcard if so just update the drivers.
Also go into the control panel and check to see what the output hardware is.
Usually it's a setting if both the headphones and the speakers dont' work then it's just a matter of somthing to do with the software.
I've never heard anyone blowing their computer speakers plus if the headphones don't work then it's definatly a setting that got changed.
I have a feeling it's in the properties of sound and the output is not correct or it is empty.
Happy Holidays

    By the way if that does not help let us know what version of windows you are running and we will be able to give you step by step instructions to assist you in changing any settings.

    But for the most part if you know where your control panel is you just have to go into that and into Sound there at the top is each setting that has to do with your soundcard.

    Also if you have a volume on your laptop such as a key that needs to turn it up and down.

    At anyrate if you do need more assistance do not hesitate to ask.

Not sound on pc matherboard g33mo2 from dell


There was a problem with the internal speakers with this model.
Firstly, try a pair of external speakers plugged into the sound port, if these work , the issue lies with the internal ones.

If there is no sound through the external speakers, check that you have the sound driver installed, that the volume is set using the FN and F keys and that the sound icon on the desktop bar does not have a x through it indicating it is disabled.

You can download an updated sound driver from the Dell site, although i think Windows 7 comes with its own sound driver for this.

If the problem points to the internal speakers, you have a few choices:
Return the laptop to Dell under warranty (if it is under warranty)
Try to obtain a set of internal speakers and replace these
Takr the laptop to a computer shop and get them to check the internal speakers and repair if necessary

Toshiba tecra a5 internal speakers broken, i just turned the laptop on one day and no sound came out. truth be it i probably knocked them or something, being a careless fifteen year old. i have no ipod...


Yes.. Sound would definitely work with the headphones..

And also, you may be able to fix the internal speakers. they probably arent dead. You probably just need to reload the sound card driver.

To find your audio / sound driver. Go to this link

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download

Enter your Toshiba model number. and when the list of drivers come up.

Find and download the sound card driver.. Then install it. And then restart the computer.. Your sound should work again.

One speaker fell ... no sounds ?? can it be


Hello,

Most likely, if the LED is still functioning on the speaker, then an internal connection has simply come loose. If you use a screwdriver to remove the woofer (the large speaker) you will gain access to the inside. You should be able to both easily see the loose connection and reach it to plug it back in.

A little less likely, but also possible is that a part of the internal circuitry is broken. But, usually in those cases, the light stops working as well.

I hope this helps.

Internal speakers do not emit sound but I can hear w/ headphones


I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)

The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.
