Hi,

The fact that it works fine with external speakers means that the soundcard works fine.

Make sure that volume isn't too low by holding the FN key and then tapping the F5 or F12 Key to reach a higher volume (depending on what the layout of your keyboard is)

If still does not make a difference, chances are that the internal speakers have developed a fault. You would need to get someone to open up the laptop and have a look. Would not suggest you do it yourself unless you have done before, as they components are more sensitive than a Windows XP one.

Hope that helps, Pls rate the solution

I don't have sound on my computer yet i have installed sound drivers and they are working well?


check in your control panel and go to systems.
Then go to hardware and under that go to Device Manager
In there see if there are any exclamation marks in your sound hardware,
conflicts and such.
If there are none then go to Sound Controls in Audio Devices and make sure the audio isn't muted in the windows program
Use this to do an audio test of your speakers.
If that isn't working but it should be check your wires to see if there is a break or if it is plugged into the the green colored jack for external speakers.

After i plugged external speakers into my laptop, the laptops speakers stopped working. I've tried driver updates rollbacks re installs and pretty much everything else i can think of, being a mildly


The laptop speakers should only be cut out when the externals are plugged in. This is done by a little switch inside the jack. If it will not switch back and the external speakers still work fine then I would say that is definitely the problem. There is not much you can do if that is stuck. All the switch really looks like is a strip of metal that is like a spring. When you push the plug in it pushes this to the side and disconnects the internal speakers. The jack is mounted on the main board so you would have to locate the proper one and solder it on or replace the main board. Short of going that far I would see if inserting a jack a few times will get it to spring back. If there has been any spills on the laptop or it is gummed up inside you can use proper electronics connector cleaner. This is risky as it can damage the plastics but doesn't take much at all to work. I would look inside the plug and see if you can see debris or gunk. I'd also try knocking it. This is literally knocking around the switch like you are knocking on a door. You don't want to hit it really hard but just a few short sharp knocks will loosen things up with out causing damage. If you knock like the landlord looking for rent money then it might ;-]

Drivers missing


most computer speakers don t use a "Driver" they are typically controlled by the "Sound card" drivers. Typically there are three jacks that computer speakers fit into. look for a green receptacle to verify they are plugged into. Typically (pink = microphone) (blue = input) . Check your power input to the speakers, very common to become unplugged from the wall outlet. (however some speakers do not have external power source) verify , mute is not checked off. (speaker icon by the clock) check control panel , speaker settings. ...sometimes people inadvertently check off "digital output only" which effectively turns the speakers off.

There is no volume on the tv, the volume bar goes all the way to 99 but there is no sound, i plugged in external speakers it worked but the tv volume is not working. How do i fix this problem?


Go into your Audio menu on the TV and make sure the TV speaker are set to “ON”.
If the external speakers work when connected to the TV and the TV’s internal speakers don’t work when you remove the external speaker’s plug from the TV, then you will need to replace the main board.
The main board has all the function for the audio for the internal speakers. This was a known issue for some of the LG TV’s. So if you call LG about this issue, LG may fix it under a warranty.
Good luck.

Built in speakers not working


Are you using external speakers? or internal?

EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.

INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.

Good Luck.

Nonworking speakers


For your monitor with built in speakers, there should be a cable usually the plug is green in color, coming from the monitor which needs to be plugged to the back of the computer for the speakers to work. If you don't see a cable, then there is a plug on the monitor where a cable would go.

Yes you can connect external speakers. They plug into the back of the computer. There are usually round ports on the back colored blue, pink, and green. Figure: http://www.ultimatepcrepair.com/files/bsound.jpg (sometimes there is more, depending on your computer) The speaker cable plugs into the Green color one.

If you need more help just comment.

Nothing is wrong. Most computers automatically turn off the internal seakers after the external seakers are connected. Go to cntrol pannel and see what you can do under audio options or some such equivelent. Check back with more problems,
