I assume you are using the headphone jack on the HP? You do know they need powering from the USB port? First try headphones and see if they work, then unplug speakers but leave the USB cable in and turn up volume to full and tap the end of the audio plug. Can you hear a click from the loudspeakers? report back
Most likely its a nardware problem. If Device manager shows the audio driver is working and enabled and when you plug an headphone into the headphone/audio out and you only get sound from the right headphone then the audio amp chip is faulty. If the headphone sounds OK then the easiest solution is to connect a set of powered speakers to your laptop.
The inbuilt speakers on my laptop do not work. I believe the
headphone input socket to be the problem because when i stick my
headphones in it only works if i squeeze the laptop near the socket. The
input has been quite heavily used so i'm quite certain its broken
somehow. Anyway, my layman theorising has led me to the conlcusion that
my laptop thinks that headphones are plugged in when they're not and so
disables the speaker so maybe if i could disable the headphone input the
speakers might work. I'm sorry if this sounds confusing but my computer
knowledge is really, really limited. Any help would be massively
When you plugged it into your laptop, turned it on and increase the volume, do you hear only a humming sound from the speakers? Try to plug the speaker to an mp3 player as well to test if it still doesnt give out any sound. If it still doesnt, then your speaker must have a wiring connection problem inside that needs resoldering. Here I supposed that your laptop's internal speakers is working and is able to work with other audio devices like a headset or an earphone.
sir try go to safe mode and then remove the sound device in hardware properties in your laptop then reboot after that, boot normal mode then you have new found hardware then install again your sound device.
unplug your headphones, and plug the speaker cord into that jack. its possible that the speakers you are using require power either by a cord or batteries and without them, it wont play sound. also, possible, your speakers are bad.
Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work. TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones. The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones. If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged. If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open. Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged. It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.
