Go to control panel --> system --> hardware >> device manager.
If you have problem with driver, there will be a big yellow question mark in your "audio controller". If there is problem, you have to reinstall your audio-driver.
If it is ok, then back to control panel -->sounds and audio devices. In tab "volume", you can see if your system might be "mute" (do uncheck box of mute). And if your volume icon is not in the taskbar, do check the checkbox of "place volume icon in the taskbar".
You can also modify the speaker performance here.

    What is your computer?

    Usually the audio driver is in the start up CD (you got it when you bought the computer). This is the easiest way.

    Otherwise, you have to know what is your audio card, try to see in the "device manager" then go to the website of the producer to download it.

HI I HAVE A DELL VOSTRO A860 AND I JUST INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 EVERYTHING IS WORKING FINE EXCEPT THE SOUND IVE DOWNLOADED VISTA DRIVERS REALTEK AND CONEXTEANT DRIVERS BUT I CANT SEEM TO GET THE SOUND TO WORK...


If you hear the sound on the headphones then the drivers installed correctly and the defect is either hardware - the jack for the headphones is stuck so the internal speakers are no longer activated when you unplug the headphones = the jack will have to be replaced by a shop - or software - you will have to go into the Realtek HD Control Panel and configure the audio outputs correctly = enable or unmute the internal speakers.
The Panel icon can be found in the notification area or in Start > Control Panel.

Hello .. Thank you very much . I was playing a music with my laptop and i tried to connect a ear pin for the speaker and all of a sudden the sound went off so you cant hear any sound . when ever i connect...


Plugging-in a set of headphones to the "audio-out" port *SHOULD* cause the internal speakers to become QUIET.

Unplug the headphones, to make the speakers work.

I have a lexicon omaga drive but when i hook it up its like i need a 64 bit driver


Don't know what OS you're running. Omega has published drivers for Vista and 7 64-bit versions. They say they don't support XP 64, but when I hooked my unit up to my computer and the hardware install wizard came up the OS found and installed Microsoft published general USB audio device drivers for all inputs, midi, and mac USB channels of the Omega, and automatically set it as my default device. I hooked headphones into the Omega unit and could hear system sounds. So far so good. Went to My Music and fired up an audio file. Windows Media Player started up and the song started playing but I couldn't hear anything. Opened the same file with Audacity, could see the VU meters bouncing, but still no sound in my headphones. Went in to the preferences of Audacity, and manually set the speaker default to the Omega mac USB device. Hit play again and voila! I had sound. Closed the file, started WMP manually, went in to options, and again set the speaker default to Omega mac USB. Opened the same audio file and this time it played just fine. The driver files Windows used for my card were
C:\\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\ksproxy.ax, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ks.sys, C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\ksthunk.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\portcls.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\stream.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\USBAUDIO.sys,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\ksproxy.ax,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\ksuser.dll,
C:\\WINDOWS\System32\wdmaud.drv,
all version 5.2.3790.1830
Hope this helps everybody else with this problem.

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

Sony Vaio PCG-K45. My speakers are not working


May be yor codec (decoding system) is missed. Try different player, also if using Klitecodecks reset settings. Find sound program and turn off 5.1 or 7.1 sound and choose 2 speakers.

Only hearing sound out of left side of headphones


i think the problem is in the jack of your sound blaster. since you have already tried different headphones and the problem still persist, and when you use speakers it works fine. i conclude it is the jack of your sound blaster card.

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm...


you need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.
