The most important question here is this: Does the sound work internally? I mean, does sound work on the laptop speakers, when no AV connection is made? If the answer is YES, then the rest of this applies to your situation,. otherwise, answer NO, and describe in detail what you mean by "AV leads", and I will reply again.
---------------
If there is sound to laptop speakers, we have established that the sound card is working, the driver is therefore sufficient, and the OS is recognizing/interfacing with the hardware and driver properly.

Therefore, your problem can ONLY exist between the audio jack and the final external device's speakers.

Just to make sure you have the audio set at a high level, raise sound volume on the menu bar and also access your sound card's equalizer, and make sure all the settings there are active (Realtek also has a separate system setting for internal laptop speakers versus external stereo or 5.1 device) test AV device now.

If still not working, start your investigation at the sound jack on the laptop. Get a good flashlight and a magnifying glass, and look inside for any bent, broken, or missing connectors or corrosion/oxidation. Next, to further eliminate the latter, examine and clean the tip of your external device plug and push it in and out about 20 times, rotating it a few degrees each time (this cleans off any hard residue or oxides inside). Test for sound now.

Next, test the AV device. Plug in some earphones or another known-good audio device. If they work fine, your AV device (or its cable/plug) is defective.

Last, if you are referring to a multi-pin S-Video plug as your "AV lead", which is quite vague terminology, rather than a 3-connector audio out or bayonnet, then be aware the S-Video output of many laptops is not always integrated. Meaning it sometimes carries ONLY video signal, not audio. Low end laptops only have video output directed to the S-Video jack, and expect you to attach a separate audio device to the laptop sound out (or use a splitter/adapter that converts the audio output to TWO of the standard RCA type plugs). This latter paragraph is intended to settle the ambiguity left by the term "AV leads" you refer to in initial message.

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.

My internal speakers are not working pls.


Please check out a few things with your laptop 1. Play some music files and see what the software tell, if it normally plays music but you cannot hear it from the internal speaker then plug in a head phone or speaker and play some music if you are not able to hear in the headphone/speaker, then the problem is with the internal speaker, (Take it to the laptop service center for repairing the internal speakers).
2. Mostly sound problem occurs due to driver software problem it may be some times corrupted, uninstalled accidently but in such cases while trying to play a music file an error will appearing stating about the problem of sound driver, but first you can try uninstalling the audio driver and reinstall it.
3. To Uninstall insert the Driver cd that came with your laptop and Click on the audio driver icon or setup program, which will prompt you to install the audio driver> on second instance it will prompt you to uninstall or repair the driver> Click on Uninstall and after being uninstalled restart the computer and install the driver. In many instances it solves the problem.
Hope this helps.

HP Pavilion Dv6 Speakers wont work!


Download the latest drivers from the hp website for your computer.Un-install the present one and reboot your computer.Install the drivers once windows come up.This should take care of it.If not it could be your os.Last thing you should consider is the sound card itself which is built on the motherboard.
Good luck

My speakers stopped working suddenly


Hello....No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with Windows OS....many of the users are facing this issue....
1 - r u facing NO Audio/Sound issue...?
2 - is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

if ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....NOTE..VERY..IMPORTANT...no file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it….

Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service.

No sound out of centre speaker


Make sure your amp is set to a channel which plays on all speakers (5.1).
If you have the amp set to "Stereo", it is only the frontspeakers and subwoofer which play sound.
