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.

You need to update your audio drivers. Go to my computer, check hardware configuration, locate the audio drivers and update. If you're still running vista, then good luck. You're falling down a black hole and may never hit bottom...

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.

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Hi, Most notebooks have a 1/8 female plugin from your audio card. (headphone Jack)
Now, you need a cord with a 1/8 male plugin on one end and two RCA Jacks on the other.
All you need to do is connect the cord to (AMP) RCA in and the 1/8 Jack to you notebook.

This will work fine. Good luck
