Question about Audio Cards

My speakers won't work when connected

It's on a laptop: both small laptop speakers work, but when i plug in external speakers or headphones in the headphone jack then the sound only comes out of the Left one (or nothing at all). My dell guarantee has expired so they wouldn't help me out. What else can i do and at what cost? and whats the problem? sound card? it happened right after i tried plugging an amplifier in that same audio jack. probably blew it up somehow. I hear it is hard to replace laptop sound cards though...
ps: i have already verified that the plug is fully inserted.+ it is not a volume control issue since both internal laptop speakers work when nothing is plugged in. + i have already verified that the headphones/speakers i was using are fully functional and stereo. they do not need an seperate power source.

    well i know that the speakers arent broken since they work on other mp3 players. and the balance is right since when nothing is plugged in the audio jack, the sound comes out of both internal speakers,

Hi plz help me i am using IBM r51 laptop which has all drivers but not able to get sound of it. but when i connect a headphone i can get sound of it. but my laptops speakers r working as i tested mt...


ibm sound card is not faulty, because you are getting sound with your head phone. The head phone jack have two functions 1. to give output to head phone 2. to disconnect internal speakers when you plug in head phone.
The jack for headphone in normal position not give connectivity to internal speakers.
SOLUTION : REPLACE THE HEADPHONE JACK.
I think it will help you.

Im recording my piano on garage band, how can i get rid of the noise coming from my laptop


Plug-in a set of headphones. This will (mechanically) disable the built-in speakers. Actually, any plug inserted into the "headphone-output" jack will mechanically "mute" the speakers.

Hello, When I connect my headset on my laptop Asus a7sv I get sound but no sound from the speakers. I have Windows Vista en I downloaded the original driver from the asus website. I tried everything....


Most headphone jacks operate as you describe. There is a switch built into the jack that diverts the audio from the speakers to the headphones for "private listening". If it didn't work this way, there would be no way that you could enjoy an audio track or other program with others having to hearing it, too.

You could get around this problem by using an external speaker set and a "splitter cable".

A splitter cable is simply a three ended cable like the one pictured above. The first end has a male plug that matches the jack on your computer - likely a stereo mini plug. The other two ends are usually the same; but the female version. You would plug the splitter into the SPEAKER jack and the laptop speakers would be silenced. Next, you would plug the the external speakers into one of the splitter jacks and then your headset would plug into the remaining splitter jack. You would connect the microphone plug into the MIC jack on the laptop.

You'll have to tinker with the sound levels as there will be feedback issues - depending on how close and loud the speakers are to the headset microphone.

Please rate this reply - and good luck!

Compac laptop, no sound


first of all check whether u have installed the sound card drivers correctly or not .If u have installed them correctly when u connect the external speakers to your laptop then a pop-up will come and ask u for the type of input you are giving . Just select the option as Line - out or headphone and increase the volume of these in the Sound and Audio Devices in the control panel.

My left speaker on my gateway ML3706 laptop just stoped working


If you get sound from both sides of the headphones when you plug it into the same jack the speakers normally plug into all you need to do is replace the speakers. If you mean you plug the headphones into the cd drive that's nothing special. You could have a bad sound card, bad connection in the jack, or bad speakers.

Problem with stereo output on Edirol FA-66


Possibly, your adapter of small to big is not a stereo adapter. Seems like a mono adapter.

If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in  speaker(s)  is/are  bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.

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.

Low sound in headphone


I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.

That should remedy the problem.
