Since it is still playing audio, just not on the laptop's speakers, then likely your speakers have gone bad. They are replaceable but sometimes getting to them can be a pain as well as finding another set of speakers for it.

My headset just stopped playin sound???


If the stereo earphone output socket is in tact (not broken), most likely the problem maybe the Earphone-cord is broken.

You can't remove your proper, Now put your earphone and start the player, now you hear the music, and sound, now off your music play and plug out your earphone, now surely you get the sound.

Absolutely no sound from the computer at all and yet the sound test says everything is working properely... have gone on the net to try to fix with no luck


did you check to see if the speakers are muted, Go to the little speaker icon in the tray (toward the right), left click on it and open the "mixer", you should be able to see if the sound is muted there. If it isn't muted, try plugging in some earphone and play some music or something you know works on your computer. If you hear sound from the earphones, then you know your sound fuction is ok and that the problem may be the spearkers ( if this is a laptop, you could still have a spearer problem, but more difficult to fix) hope this helps.

I lost the sound


FIRST OF ALL CHECK THE SOUND SYMBOL OPTION ON THE SYSTEM TRAY IF IT IS IN MUTE AND ALSO RIGHT CLICK ON THE SOUND SYMBOL TO GO TO THE MIXER TO CHECK IF ANY MUTE OPTION IS CHECKED IF EVERY THING IS OK,THEN THERE MIGHT BE A PROBLEM WITH THE SPEAKERS TO CHECK THAT INSERT A EARPHONE AND TRY TO PLAY A SONG AND SEE IF YOU CAN HEAR IT IF YES AND WITH THE EXTERNAL SPEAKERS WITHOUT THE EARPHONE IS NOT WORKING THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SPEAKERS.
MOST OF ALL THE SPEAKERS COULD BE IN MUTE.

My Sony Vaio VGN-FS690P has stopped playing sound. The sound card states it is working correctly. It does play one sounds, the sound when it starts and show the VAIO screen.


Hopefully this helps. Right click on your volume control icon. Open the "Volume Mixer," and make sure that nothing has the mute X on. Then right click on "Volume Control," and make sure that the volume control is checked to play all sounds, and that your Speaker box is checked. Next step is your music, if the sound was muted directly @ the music playback, this could be the problem. Open your Media Player and try to play music, if you cannot hear it, click on the mute button to the song playing. If your Player was shut off in the "mute" mode, then you will not hear sound. It Happened to me once. You will need to check all of your "Players" to see if any of them were shut off in "mute."

I cant hear anything without earphones


If you have left the earphone plugged in to the laptop for a long time, this may have bent the contacts in the socket, and stopped the speakers from working.

Nothing is muted, and I still cannot hear music when I try to play any. I beleive I have checked every little sound mixing detail. Is there something accidentally shut off somewhere? Or is my laptop...


a difficult question to answer

One other way of checking the sound to the speakers is not compromised is to insert and earphone in to see if there is sound. The plugs in the speaker holes have a strip of metal that disengages the speakers and connects them to the plug. if on removal these do not return to the speaker side of the circuit there will be no sound via the speakers.

My lab top is play music with sound


Have you checked your volume control? Click on the megaphone in the lower right corner and makwe sure all sliders are at least 3/4 of the way up and nothing is muted. Also go to the control panel and click on Audio and Sound devices and check each area to make sure settings are good, nothing muted.

I hope this works for you. Let me know. Your rating is always appreciated.
