Just go to your computer manufacturer's website and see if there are any audio driver updates, because that is what it sounds like to me. If there aren't any driver updates for your audio, then reinstall the audio drivers that it shows. If your computer is just a couple months old, then it is or should still be under warranty. if the driver update/ reinstall doesn not fix the issue, then if you purchased the laptop from a store, take it back, along with your receipt, and ask for an exchange or for them to repair it. if you bought it online, contact the site or your manufacturer if you ordered it from them, and request their process of sending it back for a replacement or repair. I hope. this helps you out

Built in speakers not working

Are you using external speakers? or internal?

EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.

INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.

Good Luck.

All of a sudden my microphone stopped working on notebook

try plugging a mic in the mic hole to see if it works , that would eliminate the driver or the sound card issue.

if you dont have a mic you can use a diskman headset, and speak in to the ear part
wont be as loud but still good to test
