Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I opened up a game on my laptop, which I recently got (the game), and I noticed the headphones I had plugged in didn't work. I tried a different pair of headphones and it didn't work in the laptop either. I had played the game the day before on my laptop, and everything worked fine. I minimized the game (Ctrl+Esc), to look under control panel to see if I could find something to fix it, but then my usb pluggin corded mouse stopped working. There is a mousepad built into the laptop, and it still works, but i would much rather have the usb mouse working. I have never had a problem anything like either of these before. Please help.

Try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
also
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
as for the mouse
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty or you might have to uninstall the drivers then reinstall the drivers
control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot or select properties under driver you can update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot

hope this helps

Why wont steelseries recognise the laptopkeyboard???what do i do???


So, start out with plugging your keyboard in. Where do you have it plugged? It may be "USB 2.0", and if you have it plugged into a "USB 3.0" socket, it may not work. Try a different socket.

Try a different computer, perhaps the keyboard is bad.

Try a different keyboard, too.

I tried to plug headphones into the tablet, but it didn't recognize that there were headphones. What is going on?


Have you tried simply rebooting your tablet, you may just have something corrupt in memory and a reboot should resolve that.

Loose parts inside one headphone....?


The solution may be to open up the headphones and find out exactly what went wrong inside. It could be simply a loose or broken connection or something more serious related to that rattle.

Headphone jack not functioning properly


This is the normal way for this laptop ..leave it always with the headphones on selected in that list ..cause if the main speakers don't work well there is no point in using them ..This way you will run whatever yo will plug in ..speakers or headphones..The only setting difference in headphones and stereo out ..is that for headphones will but the speakers of the laptop when plugged in ..This way it will even help you if the speakers are making weird noises cause they are damaged ..

I have problem with audio port. sometimes it does not work with headphone.


In this scenario we never blame first the port of the laptop. have you tried different headphones? normally the audio ports dont go wrong that often. but after trying different headphones if it still doesnot works then you will need to take the laptop to the service station. try different headphones before spending a penny after laptop's audio port.
