Speakers all plugged in, audio devices detected, still no sound

The speakers I have worked just fine, then one day they just stopped working. Now my computer doesn't even detect them. They are plugged in correct and I haven't switched anything.


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the 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 causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Control Panel, Sounds (Or sounds and audio devices) look to see if the volume controls are muted and make sure your sound card is the default playback device

Hello, i recently bought a new motherboard a Gigabyte GA-8I915P for no reason the mic doesn't work, I've already installed the latest audio drivers for this motherboard, the speakers work fine but why...


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.

No sound in Windows 7


Hi,

Uninstall all the audio drivers and restart the computer. Make sure the audio jack is in the Green audio port.

Let the operating system re-detect the audio and install the drivers for it itself. When its done see if you have any sound.

Post back if this does not work.



Good luck.

No sound


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.
