Headphone jack does not work

The headphone jack on the computer connects to the sound card, a hardware device that controls audio input and output on the PC. The card contains a digital-to-analog converter that converts analog audio into digital signals and visa-versa. The performance of the headphone jack, therefore, depends on how well the sound card functions; if the card doesn't work, then the headphones connected to the PC won't output sound. Reconfiguring the audio settings will often fix problems with audio output on the headphone jack, but if the former fails to resolve the issue, replacing the sound card in its entirety is sometimes the only means of repair.
Click "Start." Enter "sound" into the search box. Select "Sound" from beneath Control Panel. Double-click "Headphones." If no "Headphones" option is available, double-click "Speakers." Click "Properties" on the General tab. Check the Device Status field for errors. Look up the message on Microsoft Support for more assistance, if applicable. Close the window if the Device Status field reads "This Device Is Working Properly." Go to the "Levels" tab. Click the speaker button to unmute the volume if the icon contains a red circle-backslash symbol. Drag the top slider to the right to increase the headphone volume. Go to the "Enhancements" tab. Check "Disable all Sound Effects." Go to Applications, and then clear "Allow Applications to Take Exclusive Control of This Device." Click "OK" to close Headphones Properties or Speakers Properties. Test the audio. If the headphones fail to output sound, unplug the headphones from the computer. Reconnect the headphones to the PC. Headphone jacks are color-coded lime green on most PCs. Look for the headphones symbol if the jacks are not color-coded. Plug the headphones into the line-out port on the back of the computer if the headphone jack on the front of the PC fails to work, or visa-versa. Test the headphones. If headphones still won't emit sound, the sound card most likely requires replacement. b> Replacing the Sound Card b> Shut down the computer. Remove the power cord from the back of the PC. Disconnect the keyboard, mouse, monitor and all other peripheral devices. Loosen the screws found on the back of the case, then slide the cover panel off of the case. Touch the chassis to protect the hardware from electrostatic discharge, or ESD. Set the computer on its side. Locate the sound card found on the opposite of the audio jacks and loosen the screw that secures the card to the computer. If no expansion card is located opposite the jacks, the computer uses an integrated sound card which can't be removed. Remove the new audio card from its protective packaging. Line up the card with an available expansion slot on the motherboard, then push the card down into the slot to install the new audio jacks. Screw the card to the computer case. Reassemble the computer. Turn on the PC. Boot in to Windows and insert the CD that came with the new expansion card. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the sound card software to the computer. Plug the headphones into the new line-out jack. Hope this helps.

By connecting of DVD Player to TV from componet port , could not we receive any voice ?

If its only video component port, audio will need to be supplied from your laptop audio output with a different cable, usually a 3.5 audio jack (in the audio or headphone connector) to RCA cable (to the audio in of your TV set)

No sound or voice from the pc?

Have you installed the audio driver? If you have installed an audio driver, it most likely an incorrect one. To check if you have installed a correct audio driver. Go to the Control Panel - click on Sounds and Audio Devices - click on the Sounds tab - click on any of the Program events and click the play button. If you hear a sound from the speakers the audio driver is correctly installed. Also connect a headphone to the laptop and repeat this test.
If you don't hear any sounds and the play button is greyed out, it means the correct version of the audio driver wasn't installed.
You can check if this is true - go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager and look for any devices that have a yellow ? against the device. This indicates a device driver is required to make this device work.
You need to download the correct device driver for your model laptop, and it must be a XP or Vista version that matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop.

Windows can only play sound through one device at a time unless you have multiple audio devices, (i.e. USB headphones and onboard soundcard)

Even when you have multiple audio devices, very, very few programs have the ability or need to play the same audio through 2 different devices at the same time.

you can for example though, play winamp through your speakers while playing a vido game in your USB headset. Basically it is possibly to have different audio going the different devices at the same time but it is generally not possible to have the same audio going through different devices at the same time.

Cannot record sound

Normally every Lap is coming wit internal mic; so

1- Simply check your mic is mute or not

2 - Check your mic volume

3 - Use sound recorder that comings with windows (just record & play)

4 - Use an external MIC (known as working) with sound recorder

5 - Check in control panel->sound and audio device --> default recording device and Voice recoding device as your system’s built-in audio device (some times it’s changing when we installing b-tooth deice)

6 - Check device manager --> under sound audio controller for any issues

7 – Uninstall & install completely your Audio Device driver with default settings.

** If you didn’t solve your prob; my advice is take your lap to a good technician with component level Repair skills.

Thank you & Best Regards
