No sounds comes out in headset but external volume is ok

Try to use external speaker. connect it where you usually connect your head and check if it work . If ever the external speaker will work it only means that the problem is your headset ( defective )If in case the external speaker will not work it means the problem is the terminal ( the port where the headset or external speaker connection )

After trying to plug in headphones (in the headphone socket) I have lost all sound on my Toshiba satallite 2040 (Idid have sounds from built in speakers before hand) can you help


You have not mentioned which operating system you are using.

You might have changed the defaul audio settings.

Vista/Windows 7: Start > Cxontrol Panel > Sounds & Audio Devices > Hardware & Sound > Manage Audio Devices > highlight the external speakers from the list of devices > Set Default > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

Win XP: Start > Cxontrol Panel > Sounds Speech & Audio Devices > Hardware & Sound > Change the Speaker Settings > Advanced > Speaker Setup - select Internal Stereo Speakers > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

I hope this helps.

The speakers of my lenovo R61i laptop have stoopped working


Welcome to FixYa!

What do you mean it stopped working? No sound at all?

Please try the following:

1. Please make sure the sound is not set to mute. Try to adjust the sound volume.

2. Reinstall the audio driver. You can do this using the drivers disc that came with the computer or you can download the audio driver from the computer manufacturer's website:

3. Try to connect an external speakers or headset. If you can hear sound on an external speakers or headset then the internal speakers of your laptop is already defective.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

Sound is not working

There are some possible reasons why the sound is not working. It could be the volume control is in "MUTE", or the right sound card is not selected in the volume properties, or the speaker is defective.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Try to connect an external 2-channeled PC speaker. The computer should recognize the speaker and the sound should be transferred to the PC speaker. If the sound works on the PC external speaker, then you know that the volume control is NOT in mute and the sound card is selected. It means also that the built-in speakers could be defective.

2. If the same problem occur after connecting an external PC speaker, check the volume control, and make sure that the "MUTE" box is not checked. Then adjust the master volume.

* If everything's properly configured, but there's still no sound, check the volume properties under the Control Panel. Be sure that the correct sound card driver is selected. If that did not help, try to re-install the sound card driver.

* And the last option, contact the manufacturer and have them fix it for you.

Thank you and good luck!

Thinkpad T41 with XP-sp3: No sound / working fine until yesterday

Hi. Try plugging in an external speaker just to test the issue. It could be just the speaker of the laptop is having the problem. If you were able to hear the sound from the external speaker then the problem is the built in speaker of the computer. If there is no sound coming out to external speakers. Try to reinstall the driver of your soundcard.

IBM thinkpad type 2647 - after installing external

Go to control panel / sounds / audio, and see if the boxes have greyed out writing, if so then the driver needs reloading, if they are all good check all settings.

Meant to ask if volume control icon is showing in the right lower task bar.

In my Dell Inspiron 6400's right speakers are not working. Also the mic is not working. If i connect an external mic its working perfect. Pl help me with the speakers & mic. Thanks a lot !!

Hi. I use exactly this PC. You have to realize the mic is inbuild and not easily seen. Your external mic is also ok. About the right speakers, you'll have to check the connection on the motherboard..most likely one of the i/c has an issue. It is a rugged system and will last. Not to worry

Compaq Evo N610c No internal sound

No, you need not to install soud/audio driver if its work with external speakers. Its seems that the internal speaker of your laptop has got damaged. So you shuld call your vendor for service. If you are in warranty it will be free for you.
