No sound coming from built in speaker


Is your computer custom built? Or a factory built one? If it's factory built I'm going to need the model name.. For an example I have a Dell A950. It's name can normally be found on the front or back.

I need this because I can't help you solve your problem if I have no idea what hardware you have. Therefore I can't know where to get the driver to fix your speaker. The built in speaker probably needs a specific driver to be used.

The speaker of my computer doesn't work even the headphone what do you think the problem is?


1. Check the mute button - some computers have a hardware mute on the case. Also check the software mute button.
2. Check you default sound output device in the sound or audio control panel. Which device is the default output device?
3. Does windows "chime" when it starts?

No sound from built in speakers but headphones work


Have you checked the speaker settings? Make sure that all settings are NOT muted. One selection that is muted maybe where the sound is generated from. Such as MIDI playback. Otherwise it has to be either a missing update/driver or damaged speakers.

Have you checked on your hardware list to make sure the device is functioning properly? It may have something to do with the driver as well.

EMac sound will randomly go to FULL BLAST


If you don't get it fixed, try hooking up external speakers. The external speakers have a hardware switch that prevents it completely from going to the built-in speakers.

No sound from built in speakers


the built in speakers on the monitor are only speakers, they are not run through the video signal cable and have to be connected separately.
many monitors with speakers provide a stereo cable in the package but dont tell what the cable is for.
If there is a cable provided there will be a small jack on the monitor that connects to audio out on the sound card.
There may also be a stereo plug combined with the video cable, that likewise connects to audio out.
If the hardware is connected, there may be a volume control on the monitor that may be muted.
If the problem is a recent thing for a system that previously had working sound with this monitor, try the mute on the audio settings

No sound when I play BBC i Player/Radio etc.what to do?


We cannot yet tell if the issue is software or hardware related.
Do you get sound from any apps? If not, verify that the device and drivers are working properly.
Are your speakers built in or external?
If built-in, and no sound comes from any apps, your sound card may be bad, or drivers need reinstalling. Check the driver status using Device Manager.
If the speakers were/are external, be sure that they are securely pluged into the correct port - speaker and not microphone jack, for example - common mistake.
Be sure that the power supply for the external speakers is working. Do you have a status light on them to verify if they have power?
My suggestion would be to try another pair of speaker if you have them. Even if you used internal speakers in the past, external may work fine as a work-around.
Hope this helps.
