No sound on my macbook


Check if there is any sound coming out of the headphone (using headphone and playing itunes).
If there is none. Goto System Preference > Hardware > Sound > Output ; check if the output is assign to internal speaker and it is not muted.
Do a visual check at the headphone connector, look into it, see if you see a red light emit from the headphone jack (indicate that the fault is in the headphone connector, it's trying to output optical spdif).

I wanna connect my laptop(lenovo G450) to samsung series 4 lcd through hdmi cable


Hello,

A HDMI cable can output both audio and video, whilst some computer with Windows XP cannot automatically switch to HD Audio output as Windows 7 can. Thus manual setup can solve the problem.

After connecting the HDMI cable, Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Sounds and Audio Devices", double-click "Sounds and Audio Devices. Select "Audio" tab on "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" window.

On "Sound playback", change "Default device" from "Conexant HD Audio output" to "NVDIA High Definition Audio".

Your television should have several HDMI ports, select the appropriate HDMI port number and check if TV is not muted.


Hope this helps.

check your output volume and make sure the Mute checkbox is unchecked.
Plugin a pair of headphones. If you still have no sound. The sound board needs to be replaced, which is attached to the logic board. Meaning the whole logic board needs to be replaced.

I imac G4 but i cant get any sound out of the spakers or the headphone socket. When i start it up i do get the start up noise through the speakers but nothing after that, please help!


I can only give you an answer for Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6, as I do not run an earlier version anymore. Seeing as the Mac startup sound does successfully play through your external speakers, it leads me to believe that that hardware aspect is fine. The next area to evaluate is the software.
  1. Open you System Preferences and click on the Sound icon.
  2. Now, ensure your viewing the Output settings.
  3. First check to make sure that the appropriate line out setting has been selected. I used the mini jack for my speakers, so I have selected "Line Out". If you are using digital output, you will probably select the "Digital Out" option.
  4. If the output selected is good, last check the "Output Volume" slider at the bottom of the Sound preference window, and ensure that the Mute checkbox is not selected.

When I connect the headphones to my laptop they work good,but when I take them of my laptop doesn't have sound at all . What can I do ?


This may just be a settings issue.
With the headphones disconnected, click "System Preferences" on the dock and then select "Sound".
From the Sound window, select the "Output" tab and then select "Internal Speakers".
Once you have "Internal Speakers" select, check that the slider at the bottom of the window is moved over to about 3 out of 5 on the scale and that "Mute" is NOT checked.
Once you have done this, close the window by pressing the the red button at the upper-left. Check whether or not you have sound now. If you do not, then something has failed inside your Macbook and you will need to have it repaired.
