Speakers all plugged in, audio devices detected, still no sound
Was working fine, then suddenly stopped working for no reason, new speakers also do not work, old headphones that worked literally seconds before trying out new speakers no longer work.
what... the... hell...
I'm using a Dell dimension 8400, Usb headphones and speakers, tried both front and rear ports, speakers have headphone like jack in addition to Usb, tried plugging in with EVERY combination and order in both front and rear ports even one in front and one in rear, using only usb or jack, usb AND jack, usb in rear and jack in front, usb in front and jack in rear etc, etc, etc...

connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a
compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line
specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust

Maybe it's not recognized. Unplug every audio device, open Realtek HD Audio Manager and start plugging them back one at a time, the manager should automatically detect that something was plugged in a specific port. Just tell it what you have plugged.
restart the computer so that the o/s can detect the audio device ,if after restarting it didnt work then check the status of your audio driver from the device manager if not detected reinstall if this didnt work then you know the spk is bad and needs replacement
To troubleshoot a no sound issue first you must check your device manager to make sure the audio device is installed properly.
To goto the device manager in XP: Right click my computer>Properties > Hardware Tab > Device manager.
Look for your audio device in the list under "Sound, Video and game controllers". If it has a exclamation mark or question mark beside it you will need to download the most recent drivers from the manufacturer's website.
Next step is to goto start>programs>accessories>entertainment>volume control make sure that Wave nor Master Volume is not muted, and both are turned up.
Third step is to check for onboard volume control, there might be volume controls on the system hardware itself.
If you say that external speakers work and not the built in speakers, then the headphone jack that you plug the speakers into may be defective. As it is always detecting something plugged into it and never turns the internal speakers on.
You need to reinstall the latest drivers for your present sound device then restart your pc then check it. It will work surely! you should install the drivers that came with your sound devices! thats it!
