Mulitmedia speaker and mic not working


My fujitsu S7025 laptop is working fine including the built-in speaker and headphone. But the mic is not working also when I plugged in the mutlimedia speakers they are not working. I don't know what is the problem. I have checked the setting and made sure that the mirophone setting is not in mute. Could you please suggest a solution?

Thanks a lot

I have checked the usb and the (green) speaker connection.,
I have used device manager - it says that device is working
i have used realteck sound manager and and have experimented with all setting with device manager - stereo - rear speakers - but no sound.

Re: mulitmedia speaker and mic not working

For the first problem open your multimedia properties box under the audio tab you will have a sound recording device specified, check whether you have your device listed, usually you have your say ( Realtek HD Audio input or the respective company input device who supplied your audio drivers). If its not listed ten you might be having problem with the drivers or hardware you will have to call the service engineer to have to problem solved.

for the second one try the same solution. select the proper devices under the audio tab in multimedia settings.

Using headphones

You can get a set of speakers that has a headphone jack on front (it will shut off the speakers when headphones are in) or you can unplug the speakers and plug in the head phones. Some PCs have a red and green jack in front - plug in headphones to the green, you should have the speakers shut off till you unplug. All else fails they make a headphone/mic extender that sits like a hockey puck on the desk, has cables to the mic and speaker jacks on back of the PC and on the puck part has a jack for speakers, mic and headphone - some switched manually by you, some switch when the headphones plug in. If you had posted the model I could see if your machine has front red and green jacks.

I have a samsung pentium 4 2.66ghz, has this machine got built in speaker for audio sound?


theres usually an onboard sound-card on most motherboards, providing the drivers are installed, for the sound-card i.e realtek or similar.
On the Back of the computer, you should have minimal 3 x jack plug outputs. red-green-blue. red-mic. green- sound ( headphones/Speakers ) Blue line-In or Similar.

Don't know how to hook them up

What a lovely daughter, how very nice of her,

here goes....straight for Mr. Koss

To Operate with AC Adapter
  1. Open battery compartment located at the back of both speakers and remove wires.
  2. Replace battery covers.
  3. Connect DUAL PLUG CONNECTOR on left speaker to right speaker at connection marked "TO LEFT SPEAKER."
  4. Connect remaining wire with 3.5mm plug to headphone jack on your audio source.
  5. Connect AC adapter (not included) to back of left speaker at connector marked "DC 6V." Plug remaining end of AC adapter into wall outlet. Be sure your AC adapter is built with the center pin as ("-") negative. Connect remaining wire with 3.5mm plug to the headphone jack on your audio source.
  6. Turn ON/OFF switch at back of right speaker to "ON."
  7. Set "INPUT SELECTOR" switch to audio source.
  8. Turn on audio source
  9. Adjust sound in the following ways: Turn volume control to desired level; push Bass Boost button located on right speaker to "ON" for added bass; push Treble Boost button on right speaker to "ON" for added treble
  10. Operating a microphone through your speakers require an additional 3.5mm plug to 3.5mm plug cable (included). Connect cable with 3.5mm straight plug to right speaker at input marked "MIC" on back of speaker. Plug the remaining 3.5mm L--plug into the mic input on audio source. Connect your microphone to the front of your speakers at "MIC" input (microphone not included)
Hope you have all of the skinny you need, good luck,

Trying to add speakers

The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??

Be sure that your headphone mic plug jack is plugged in to the mic jack (right-most jack) and not the second headphone jack. If so, check your sound setting in Control Panel and make sure the mic is enabled and the volume slider for it is up.

If your headphones have a single plug you cannot plug these into a regular speaker connection or headphone connction and get mic and sound, you will need a headset that has 2 separate plugs (one for Mic and one for headphone) or a splitter you can get a radio shack. Most headsets have only one plug and there are connections for both the mic and the headphones on this plug, but the headphone connection on the computer has only connections for the headphone and therefore cannot detect the microphone.

Fujitsu seimens scaleo P

Easiest way is to find the drivers through the "connect to internet" option which you get once you click on update/re-install drivers in the device manager. Sometimes this process does not work, so in that case you go to fujitsu site, support,choose your PC model and download drivers. Another option, go to, specify your PC model & download drivers.

Siemens fujitsu scalo p.....can't get my 2.1 speakers to work

Hi There Try this, CONNECTION Check your connections on Rear part of your PC. Lime is for Sound Out usually a speaker, Pink is for Mic, Blue for Audio Input. VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. WIRELESS\BLUETOOTH Check your battery if it is drained. Try replacing them with a new one or charge them if they are rechargables. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester. Hope This helps ======================= If you are having trouble with Newly bought items then return them and demand a replacement or a refund! You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.
