Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Pc audio My 2 yr old Dell pc now plays ALL audio as chopped up, skipping playback. This happens with the speakers, with the front headphone jack, or the rear sound card jack on headphones. The speakers work fine on another pc. ALL audio is affected, CDs, mp3s, wav files, even startup sound files. If I display the Task Manager window and the Performance Tab, the chopped up sound is directly related to the spikes in CPU usage. Any ideas for additional troubleshooting? Thanks

Looking for old Logitech S-100 driver


These are analog speakers and do not need a driver. First, make sure they're plugged into the speaker/headphone jack and not the microphone jack. Second, make sure the computer's sound output is enabled and set the headphone/speaker jack. Third, verify that the sound output is working by plugging in a headphone set or a different pair of speakers. If the computer sound checks out, the speaker cable is bad or the power supply is not working.

Headphone jack is broken INSIDE the port and is overriding the speakers. Can I override this override?


Or instead of having to open up your computer and messing with the mobo. Just use the control panel in to disable the headphone jack.

Dell laptop headphone sound on out headphone no sound


Sound Loss in Dell Computer Headphones b> Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

I have a Dell Studio XPS 13 and a few months ago my speakers suddenly stopped working. I lived with it for a while by jut using a headphone jack. However, lately both of my headphone jacks have stopped...


Check the device manager in the windows control panel and make sure your audio device is listed and has no conflicts present. If all is good there, I suggest downlading the latest driver, then uninstall/remove your audio device from the device manager, then install the new driver and let the computer rediscover the harware. Sometimes it just helps when the computer thinks it's a new device.

Speakers work in the front headphone jack on my Dell PC, but not in the audio jacks in the back of the computer


I think most computers do not have headphones in the rear, just LINE OUT, which has no enough volume to be used for headphones.

No Sound in any mode


I had the same problem... but I knew that my 2 yr old had been playing with the headphone jack on the BC-150. Evidently, the system thought that headphones were still plugged in to the port on the front right of the unit, even though none were present. The solution that worked for me was to take some headphones, plug them COMPLETELY into the system (another set of headphones would not insert all the way, so I found a new set and used those to completely insert into the headphone port) while playing a CD and listen for a few seconds and then simply unplug them. Viola! Sound came back. Hope this helps.
