Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

One speaker/earphone doesn't work on my pc

I have a custom built PC, but only one speaker or earphone works when you plug them in. I've tried different speakers/headphones but it still only comes through one side. I've check all of the sound/balance settings and they are all set so the sound should be equal. Can you help?

Are you plugging them into the back? If so, check the audio headers on your motherboard. They'll look something like this:

External speakers won't work on HP T5570e Thin Client


Try to use earphones, plug them in to phone audio connector....
try if it works..... if so, disconnect them and plug speakers.... and try again.... if doesn't work, go to audio advanced setup and check if speakers are not muted, or set up voicevolume level is too low. Play with that setup....

Also some computers can turn on or off speakers in Bios.

If problem will not be solved, try to use USB speakers

Headphone jack has a piece of connector stuck in it and it is making my speakers not work how can i fix this problem?


You will need to remove the broken piece. Power down the computer and unplug it. The only suggestion I would have is see if you get get to the jack from inside the computer and push out the broken piece with a paper clip.

Hey, I've got an HP Compaq D530 SFF desktop machine whose sound card uses the SoundMAX drivers. The problem is that when I connect earphones/headphones on the front panel, and try to listen to music or...


if you go to the bios (restart computer and press del to go to setup) you should be able to look around and find the option for internal speaker. Set that option to disable and do not change anything else unless you know your way around. Save it and restart afterwards and it should disable the internal speakers.

I have an hp 2011x monitor. How do I connect earphones for sound ?


If you are asking about where to connect the earphones to the monitor, you can't. As far as I can determine this model monitor does not have an earphone jack nor built in speakers.
This is a great HD monitor, but you will have to plug the earphones into the jack (green plug) on the front (and/or back) of the computer to get the sound.

Just purchased ASUS Essentio Desktop PC - model CM1630. Salesperson gave me the impression there are built in speakers, but I have yet been able to hear sound. HELP, please!


Base on the specification of the Asus Essentio CM1630, it doesn't have a built-in speaker for multimedia listening.

Mostly, built-in speakers that came with the computer are only for knowing the beep codes of your motherboard. To know if is it starting up or there are errors on your computer.

I would suggest getting a pair of speaker to easily resolve this issue.

You can also try to connect an earphone or headset to try if there is any problem with the sound card of your computer. Just connect any earphone or headset that you might have and see if you can hear any sound.

Headphones work but no sound from either of 2 sets of speakers.


Are speakers turned on with volume up?
Are there batteries in the speakers of not powered by the outlet?
Are the speakers plugged into the wall as well as the computer's earphone jack?
Is windows set on mute?

I would check the above first.

Speakers


Ok.. get some earphones, nice simple walkman dollar store earphones. Put a cd in the cd tray or play an mp3.. look in the back of the pc for a green jack.. try it, try them all. Then look on the bottom right hand corner of the screen, any little speaker icon? open it, set the volume? No speaker icon? control panel, sound, make sure there is a sound card listed.
Work backwards logically with known working equipment.
