There is no sound from my lg laptop
May be the problem is with your computer settings or perhaps an outdated or
faulty driver, and not with the speakers. Checking to see if any
settings or drivers can fix the problem is a good idea before
attempting to open the laptop or giving in and buying external speakers.Try following steps:
1: Test the audio in more than one program. If audio works in some
programs but not others, the "mute" setting might be on in one or more
programs and should be unmuted.
2: Turn up the volume on the external volume control. It may be on the side
or on the front of your laptop, or even on the keyboard (some models
have a touch-sensitive strip at the top of the keyboard that you might
not have realized controls the volume). Also look for any "mute"
shortcut keys you might have accidentally pressed (the symbol looks
like a speaker with a diagonal line through it) and try pressing it
again to see if sound is restored.
3: Go to your volume controls ("Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound,"
"Audio Devices," "Sound" and "Adjust System Volume"), and under "Main
Volume," make sure the slider is slid up and that the volume is not set
4: Plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack on the laptop and see
if you can hear sound that way. If you hear noise in headphones or
external speakers but not the built-in speakers, either your drivers or
the speakers are the problem. Try uninstalling the drivers for your
speakers in "Device Manager" and reinstalling them by visiting your
laptop maker's website and downloading any updated drivers you need.
5: Open "Device Manager" by going to "Start," "Control Panel" "System" and
"Maintenance." Open "Sound "Video, and Game Controllers," and see if a
sound card is detected. If there is but there is a yellow question mark
next to it, right click it, and go to "Properties," "General" and
"Device Status" to see how to fix any problems. You may need to update
or install new drivers from your computer maker's website. If there is
no yellow question mark, uninstall and reinstall the drivers to see if
this fixes the problem.
6: Reinstall your audio device drivers from your laptop brand's website if
a sound card is not detected. It is possible some recent changes
removed the drivers and made your speakers undetectable, so
reinstalling the drivers should fix the problem.
