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.

No sound from my laptop?


If you have no sound, there are several reasons. First, the sound may be turned off. Check the sounds icon in the control panel. Check to see if your laptop speakers are the default playback device and make sure they have not been muted. Check the little picture of a speaker in your system tray. Click on it to see if the volume is too low or the little mute square is not checked.
Rarely is the problem defective speakers--rather it's muted volume or the wrong playback mode being chosen. For instance, if you have a set of earphones and you can't hear sound from the speakers, you probably will be able to hear it through the earphones.

Hi guys Recently i am experiencing big problems with my asus laptop speakers. when i try to play music on a bit more higher level than i can hardly hear it emmits terrible noise and nothing can be done...


It's not your sound card. Speakers are the problem, they have a connector on the motherboard, it could be this connector unplug only a bit from his slot, or your speakers are broken.

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."

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.

No sound can be heard from my laptop without using an earphone


Check your settings for sound in the control panel the fact that you can hear sound from the headphones indicates that the sound card is functioning correctly and not muted. It may be disabled in the control panel.

The sound on both my old IBM laptops (T40 & X31) no longer work.


Try pressing the sound up button on the top of the keyborad. There are 3 buttons sound up, sound down and mute. It appears that the sound control on windows is independant of the buttons.

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.
