Try plugging a pair of headphones or earbuds or a different pair of known-working speakers (in places of the current speakers) - if you get sound with the "replacements", then there's a problem with the "current" speakers; otherwise, the problem is the sound on the unit.
Alternatively, plug the "current" speakers into a different (preferably, known-working) unit. If there's still no sound, then there's a problem with the speakers; otherwise, the problem is the sound on the original unit.
1. Right click on the speaker icon in taskbar and select volume control options. 2. put a check mark on "All devices currently playing sound". 3. Make sure you have "The default communication device unchecked". 4. place a check mark on speakers/headphones
Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.
#1 Flash the BIOS to the most current version.
#2 Run diagnostics from the F12 menu (Or Power plus FN key) see if the speakers work in the diagnostic. If they work in diags, there is no hardware issue, only a software issue. If you get no sound in diags, try a pair of headphones, if you still get no sound, then it is a hardware problem. If you only get sound in the headphones, then the microswitch that disables the speakers is stuck.
#3 is sound works in diags then you have a problem with the audio driver or speaker configuration (Audio muted etc)
Go to the icon tray and double click the speaker icon. Have a look in the Advanced controls to see if you have taken the mute off the pc speaker. There might also be an option to play sound on the pc speaker simultaneously with the headphones. If so, uncheck the dual play box so the sound will not play through the pc speaker when you have the headphones plugged in.
Plug the headphones directly into the speaker port on the sound card, check for a mute button on the headphones. try another set of headphones to double check wether the first set is working.
I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.
