    Is this a new pc or have you made changes? Check the most simple things first. Plug the speakers into a different device, like a radio with a headphone jack or a portable music player. make sure you have power going to the speakers "if they plug in' also make sure you have them plugged into the correct output on the computer usually green. That would be audio out. Check the task bar on the bottom right of your computer to see if you have the sound muted. If so, click the little speaker and uncheck the mute box.

    Good Luck.

Cano't change from speaker 2 earphones. volume on speaker alltime


Hi,

It is a conflict of drivers in some PC's.

First make the sound device to speaker as default.

1. Click Start, type Sound in the Start Search box.
2. Click Sound in the search results at the top of the Start menu.
3. Click the Playback tab. Notice the check mark next to the default device. For most users, the default device is Speakers. Make sure that your audio settings are configured as expected.
4. On the Playback tab, select the playback device, click Configure, and then make sure the configurations are set correctly.
5. In the Playback tab if you are unable to find the Speakers then please right click on any of the devices under playback tab and select Show disconnected devices and Show Disabled devices.
6. Select Speakers, and then click Set Default. (If you find Conexant or anything similar to that click on it and select Set Default)
7. Click OK to save your settings and to close the Sound dialog box.
If speaker is set as default, then re-install drivers.

Uninstall the Sound device:

1.Click Start, and in start search type device manager and press enter.
2.Expand sound,video and game controllers, and right-click on the Sound driver and choose uninstall.
3.Check the option for delete the device software for this device.
4.Now restart the computer and boot into normal mode.

Now, uninstall the programs and features:

1.Click Start, and in Start search type programs and features.
2.Choose the audio application and click on Uninstall.
3.Restart the computer.

Upon restart, install the audio driver from the disc which is given by manufacturer of the computer.

Please let me know if this works.

Regards,

Nags

Sound is not working on my hp laptop


I had the same problem; my laptop's speakers suddenly stopped working but I could still use the headphones and sound was fine.

I played around a while and searched the net; and I got them to work:

Open Control Panel- Sound, Speech, Audio Devices-------->
1) Audio Tab
2) Under 'Sound Playback' hit Advanced
3) At the bottom where it has Speaker Setup change it to "Laptop Stereo Speakers" (mine was initially on "Desktop Stereo Speakers" for some odd reason)

Problem solved, Thank God (Alhamdulilah)!

Hope it works out for you :)

I am unable to get speakers working.


Hi,

There is small logic to resolve or to narrow down the Audio issue.

Let me explain.

First, try to play any audio file and observe if is giving any error message or it seems to playing without sound.

If it gives any error message like "No Audio/Media device installed or found", then the audio driver is not installed in the computer or the Windows Audio serviceis stopped.

If it seems to be playing without sound, then somewhere it might be muted or Sound level might be lowered.

If you are sure that all settings are okay and not Muted, then you have to check with another speakers or headphones.

If another speakers works, then the issue is with the ols speakers.

Please get back to me if you need more information on this issue.
