Question about Dell Precision M60 Notebook

Audio is mucked up...damn it


I was playing an mp3 through the normal built into the laptop speakers. While playing the song, I plugged an audio patch cord into the head phone slot and poof...the song sounded as if it were coming from mud.

I tried different songs, different players, used a different patch cord and tried playing music or movies through a set of computer speakers, checked all sound related joy.

Naturally the warranty has just expired. Any clues?

My speakers haven't been working properly for a while and I was wondering how to fix this. They sometimes work (very rarely) but then they just cut off, the music will still be playing but I won't be

If it always works with headphone - without fail - then it is likely the fault is within the headphone socket. You'll appreciate that when you plug in headphone, the speakers in the laptop are cut off - which is a mechanical break in connection caused by the plug. Sadly, it sounds like it is staying disconnected.

Sound from speakers is not clear

Try head phones. Are they also not clear? IF they sound ok then its possible your speakers have been damage. Try another source, Music mp3, Cd, etc. Are all the sources the same. If Headphones sound good and speakers bad then troubleshoot the speakers. If both sound bad then troubleshoot the software and settings. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar and adjust audio setting. Try playing audio with windows media player and then play the same file/song with another software, I-tunes, quicktime, VNC, etc. Does different software play the file correctly and another play it not clear. Then adjust the software settings in the player thats bad. .. .

External speakers for toshiba laptop problem

Check device manager and make sure the audio drivers are not disabled. If so enabled it. I am quite sure you have checked to see if its muted. If it is enabled and its not working, try updating the drivers or uninstalling and reinstalling latest driver audio driver OEM site.

**If you reinstall the same driver you might get the same error but its what a shot.**

HP Compaq nx6115 PC Notebook : Speakers suddenly stopped working

Just go to your computer manufacturer's website and see if there are any audio driver updates, because that is what it sounds like to me. If there aren't any driver updates for your audio, then reinstall the audio drivers that it shows. If your computer is just a couple months old, then it is or should still be under warranty. if the driver update/ reinstall doesn not fix the issue, then if you purchased the laptop from a store, take it back, along with your receipt, and ask for an exchange or for them to repair it. if you bought it online, contact the site or your manufacturer if you ordered it from them, and request their process of sending it back for a replacement or repair. I hope. this helps you out
