    Thank you...Thought of that Max. I am trying to avoid that solution as it does work however that solution creates a mess of wires at the front of my laptop. It worked with the usb before and now the mystery that I am trying to solve is why it doesn't work now. Thanks for trying.

    It work without being connected to the audio output on another laptop? How? I have my Bose SoundDock plugged into the headphone jack with 1- 3.5mm RCA plug. Not what I would call a mess of wires, but that's just me.

My iHome iBT60 has a low volume when connected through Bluetooth. I've tried connecting & reconnecting it twice, and it didn't work. Has anybody had success troubleshooting thi


Turn up the volume on your iPhone. Also, try connecting your iPhone or any other media player, e.g. computer, to the AUX IN jack on the speaker and see if the volume is higher for that connection.

External speakers won't work on HP T5570e Thin Client


Try to use earphones, plug them in to phone audio connector....
try if it works..... if so, disconnect them and plug speakers.... and try again.... if doesn't work, go to audio advanced setup and check if speakers are not muted, or set up voicevolume level is too low. Play with that setup....

Also some computers can turn on or off speakers in Bios.

If problem will not be solved, try to use USB speakers

How can i on its speaker


How old is this laptop? Have you tried the mute button (software or hardware)? Have you tried holding the shift key while pressing the mute/volume up/down buttons?

Are these internal or external speakers? If external, are they plugged in to a power source (or connected via USB)? Have you looked for power and volume switches on the speakers?

Can't turn off internal speakers when i have external speakers connected via headphone socket


First, check if you put the connector for external speakers all the way to the end. Sometimes when the connector isn't fully inside both internal and external speakers will work. After you do that, once you connect the external speakers, go to the sound settings in windows and look for the volume mixer. You can regulate the sound for each type of speaker there.

I cannot get sound from my internal speakers on dell d600 latitude. Headphones work and sound comes out of internal speakers briefly when pulling jack plug out? So I know they work but just cannot get...


This sounds like a defective audio port. In normal operation, plugging in a headphone plug breaks the connection to the speakers. On your laptop, when you pull out the plug it makes a connection, but only briefly. Unfortunately the audio port is built into the system board. I don't think you will find a software fix for this problem. Your best bet is to get a USB sound device for external speakers.

IBM thinkpad type 2647 - after installing external


Go to control panel / sounds / audio, and see if the boxes have greyed out writing, if so then the driver needs reloading, if they are all good check all settings.

Meant to ask if volume control icon is showing in the right lower task bar.

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Can't mute inbuilt speakers


That is not a software problem.
The headphones/external speakers jack socket has a switch to exclude from audio the internal speakers, when a jack plug is connected.
This is a very simple device and is not software controlled.
The fact that it has gone faulty at the same time you reinstalled the system is a coincidence.
If it does not mute when you insert headphones, all you can do is trying to play with the jack plug , inserting and pulling it out. If this does not unlock the switch, the alternative is having the jack socket replaced by a technician. This is generally an expensive repair, asthe socked is soldered on motherboard.
A cheap alternative to a proper repair is using an external USB to Audio Adapter and mute the internal audicard when using headphones.
