Is my sound card fried?

How to fix an audio jack on a laptop? / What's your diagnosis
If somebody could help me out...I'm pretty sure I blew something up when I plugged the output of a guitar amplifier to the headphone jack of the laptop because since then, when something is plugged in that jack, (speakers or headphones) nothing comes out. When nothing is plugged in, the sound correctly comes out of the two internal laptop speakers. Does anybody understand what happened

I can only hear sound when using headphones on my laptop but...


Check your Audio and Sound Properties in the device manager to make sure the volume is up, the laptop speakers are selected as the output device and that they are not on mute. Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

You can also get to the Audio or Sound properties by clicking on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time.

Try downloading and reinstalling the Audio drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.



Try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound and audio issues.




Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.





Maybe your speakers on the laptop are bad or the cable that connects it to the motherboard is loose. You will have to take the laptop apart to see. You can always buy a set of usb speakers that plug into your usb port. Try Tiger Direct at:

When the site comes up type: laptop usb speakers in the search box and click GO. Sort the returned results by Price Low to High.

I have BLKDG31PR motherboard....I"ve fixed


First, make sure all the sound drivers are up to date.

Then, on windows goto start>Control Panel>Device manager.
Find the 'Sound, video and game controllers' category and open it.
Make sure there is something there, if there is not, you have not installed the sound driver.

Next, go back to Control Panel and click on 'Sound'
On the playback tab, make sure the output you want is set as default. There will probably be some other ones like 'Digital Audio', for the normal 32mm headphone/speaker jack you will need 'speakers' set as default.
Also make sure the speakers/headphones are plugged into the green jack.

yes you must plug both the usb lead and the sound jack in to get any sound
depending on what computer you have the three jack inputs should be pink-green-blue
plug it in to middle one you could try them individually
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also

Hi thebigbumble,

I'm not sure why your audio is not installed, but you can download the driver to install it HERE. Make sure you put in your model and operating system, and they will get you the right stuff.

Good Luck,

What is wrong with my audio plug?


Yep, you blew it up, all right.

The headphone jack in the laptop is a low-level OUTPUT which goes TO a set of headphones or the INPUT of an amplifier. You went the wrong way and fed a high-level signal (the guitar amplifier OUTPUT) INTO the laptop.

The electronics inside the laptop are not made to deal with the high level you fed in, so it's been damaged. Ever blow out a set of speakers with too high a volume? That's basically what has happened here.

To fix the problem and get your sound back would require a new system board.

Im having problems with the onbord audio plz help me


Several suggestions:

Make sure the onboard sound is enabled in the BIOS settings.

Be sure the jumper plugs between pins 5 & 6 and 9 & 10 on the F_AUD connector on the board are installed (unless they have been removed to plug in a cable to audio connectors on the case). Without these the sound won't go to the output jack on the board.

Reinstall sound drivers.
This will get you to Gigabyte's download page for this board. There are several versions so you'll need to pick yours from the list.

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_List.aspx?Keyword=GA-K8VT800

Download and install the sound driver to make sure you have the latest version. Then verify your sound settings in Windows to be sure you don't have anything muted.

Be sure your speakers are hooked up correctly (plugged in to the correct jack, proper power, etc.).

If nothing gets the sound working you may have a problem on the motherboard. Get a sound card and install it in one of the PCI slots to replace the onboard sound. These often give better sound quality than the onboard audio anyway.

MICRO PHONE IS NOT WORKING


for one, muicrophone should be plugged into the audio in jack, usually its Pink or has an arrow pointing towards the center of little waves meaning audio in.

If the board is damaged and it just doeant work, go get a Sound card from wallmart, they are pretty cheap, get the Creative 24 bit sound card, i have one and it works great for everyday stuff like this. install it, run the install disk, and make sure you swithc your sound settings from the onboard to the new Audio card. It under START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICES ( double click). Under the Audio Tab it will have a drop down box to select the audio card or the regular system board audio.
