No sound on HP PC with Vista

The sound was working and now has stopped. If I go to the control panel it says the speakers are not plugged in, but they are, and they are in the right port. I have reloaded the driver. I have not added any new software or hardware that could have caused a conflict. Headphones do not work either.

    Assuming there is power to the speakers, and they are in fact plugged in properly...



    In Device Manager, is the Realtek sound working properly? Is it, by any chance, muted?

Sounds like the hardware died to me as well.

But, one last thing to try, try going into Device Manager, uninstalling all the audio devices, then after uninstalling them, reboot the computer and let the PC find them. You can try that before you have to go to Best Buy to pick up a cheap audio card. Post back.

Assuming you have reloaded the driver, and have tried another set of speakers or headphones, then the problem must be in the connector on the back of the computer, or the sound card itself. If the computer has a second headphones jack, some have one on the front and one on the back, you can try this. If this does not work either, then the sound card on the computer will likely need to be replaced.

if it is built into the motherboard you cannot change it wthout changing the motherboard.
I assume you are using Windows (prob Vista on machine age)
go to the control panel - sounds and run the test - sometimes that fixes sound issues
if not uninstall the driver and let windows find the hardware and re-install it.
Let me know if you are still having problems.

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7


Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

Awaiting.

Cannot detect sound card on hp pavilion desktop windows vista operating system


If a new installation be sure and install the device driver that came with it.

If it is an existing card that stopped working it may need replacing or you may need to re-install the device drivers.
If the sound card is part of the main system board and has failed you can replace it with a new sound card plugged into the expansion slots.

Make sure that the sound was not inadvertantly muted - double click the speaker icon on the task bar.

Try the hardware troubleshooting wizard under control panel.

Speakers stopped working


I get such a thing from time to time on different systems. What I do:

1. Open the Sound Control Panel (the one on this present PC is named: "SoundMax Control Panel").
2. Enable or Disable a certain feature (something like "Virtual Theater Surround" or "Virtual Ear" or "Acoustic Environments" or so on).
3. Click Apply and the sound is back in your speakers.
4. If you want, you can undo the enable / disable and the sound still works.

Speakrs don't work on new HP Pavilion desktop.


If you're using Windows XP, go to the Control Panel, then double-click on Sound, then go to the Audio tab and make sure the playback device is set to your Realtek output.

If you're using Windows Vista, go to Control Panel and click on Hardware and Sound, then click on Sound. Make sure your Realtek device is selected with a green check mark. If it isn't, just click on it and then click the Set as Default button down below. Vista sound configuration is kinda quirky, and it does do some kind of detection when you plug a cable into an audio jack, so you might leave this screen up while you plug your speakers into the green audio jack in the sound card and see if it pops anything weird up.
