This article might help. Start by going to control panel>sounds>hardware and check to make sure there are no disabled devices, no errors reported for the devices present.
Try rebooting the system. Maybe it didn't load all the drivers correctly.
If that doesn't work, you could use system restore to take it back to a point when it worked. Also might try visiting windows update and see if they offer a hardware update for your system.
Might be time to do some maintenance. See here
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Can't hear myself talk


Dan, You should be able to hear yourself inside your head as the small hairs that vibrate in fluid in your ear canal will pick up your vocalizations. In any case you know what you're saying and it shouldn't be a problem talking to someone.
Now if you're listening to music really loud on those headphones and still need to hear yourself think, I suggest you turn down the volume. :)

Sentry headphones with mic


My mic DOES pick up stuff, we just can't quite figure out where the mic actually is so we can talk into it and actually hear us talking pretty well, we can slightly hear us talking into it in a recording, but it's so low! (we/us being me and my friend)

The sound on my firefox browser is low but when I listen to Window media player, it is very loud.


Try following solutions, if it works for you

To switch between speakers and headphones on Firefox,
make sure your headphones are plugged in first,
Right click on volume on the bottom right corner of your screen,
Then select Volume Mixer,
then double click on System sounds,
Click on the playback tab,
then you could switch between speakers or headphones, just select one and click "set default" and OK
only sounds in firefox will play in the headphones,
and windows media player will play on the speakers

You could leave your windows media player to play on the speakers while you listen to firefox videos in the headphones

If you want the media music player to play in your headphones also;
You have to change it in the media player program,
go to options on the media player, then look for playback devices, there should be 2 options speakers and headphones,
just pick one

I usually set the firefox audio to my headphones,
and a media player to the speakers

Please rate & vote if you like solution...

Thanks

On my i mac i can talk on skype thru my headphones but it wont let me talk without them, so was wondering what went wrong?It was working before..


holding option while clicking on the volume icon (speaker) will bring up a small menu, make sure the 'input device' is the internal microphone.
if that doesn't work go to System Preferences -> Sound -> Input and select Internal microphone, it might need to be turned up. From that screen it can be tested to make sure it's functioning and picking up sound

Polk computer speakers work in laptop but not on desktop computer


desktops now a days have more than one plug for the speakers. try playing some music and play which hole works.

if there is a 5.1 or surround on the desktop then most likely the light green jack isnt stereo out but rather unamplified signal. thus when you plug head phones into it the internal amp drives the headphones, but wants the computer to drive the speakers.

try plugging it into the black one... or play pick a hole till it works.
