Windows 8 Laptop speakers are inconsistent?

Q: Windows 8 Laptop speakers are inconsistent?

Recently I noticed that my laptop speakers aren't working consistently at all. Sometimes I watch youtube, listen to pandora, and everything will work fine. Other times it won't work at all. I've been getting by like this for a week, but now it seems like now the only audio my speakers will play is a notification sound. I still have the computer under warranty, and I can take it into the store and get the speakers fixed. However, I was wondering if there was a way I could skip all the trouble/paperwork of taking it back in? maybe I just clicked something I shouldn't have?
Any tips are hugely appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

While on vacation, my friend asked me to look at her laptop because she reported that her screen saver was not working properly; stated that sometimes it would come on after the desired time-limit but more times than not it would not turn on. Thinking this was user error, I offered to look at her laptop. After spending 2 hours digging into her laptop with no access to the internet or my virus tools, I didn't have an answer. However, what I did experience was the inconsistency; sometimes it would work, other times it would not. I restarted the laptop three times; only once did the screen saver activate without having to re-apply the changes already set up for the screen saver.

She has no third-party screen saver's she is trying to run, just standard Win XP savers (all of which I was able to get to work); Gateway laptop running Win XP sp2.

Any idea's? Thanks in advance!

HI , i have a weird problem
my windows sometimes disables my laptop speakers , i just trurn the laptop on , and find no sound then i right click the sound icon < volume control options and i find the speakers unchecked
it only gets fixed by restarting after checking the speakers
can someone tell me why this often happens
note : this mostly happens when i change the power source like stop using the battery and use the charger without using the battery

A:windows sometimes disables my laptop speakers

Try a more descriptive title, and you may get more help quickly. Anyway, it may be a power setting that turns off the speakers to save energy. Check your power settings.

Hi all,

I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop and have recently upgraded to windows 7 professional (32bit) from windows vista. Everything seems to be running smoothly except I can get no sound from the internal laptop speakers. When I plug in external speakers in via the jacks on the front, sound comes through fine, but as soon as I unplug them there is nothing. Headphones also work like this too. Under sounds in device manager, it simply says 'High Definition Audio Device', and I'm not sure if I should be downloading some other drivers?

Any advice is welcome!

A:External Speakers work, Laptop speakers do not

What do you have set as your default sound device? Mine is set to my external speakers.

I'm using a Packard Bell laptop, Windows Vista and a Realtek sound card.

I've searched a lot to find how to NOT mute my laptop speakers when I insert something in the audio-out-jack.

The next threads say it's not possible by the hardware:
They're closed, so I can't comment on them.

BUT when I dual boot to Ubuntu (using the same hardware), I can easily choose to mute the internal speakers, or the jack, or none at all. So why can't it be possible on Vista?

A:Same audio through laptop speakers and external speakers

You answered your own question... It's a software/OS issue. If Vista's Realtek options in the Control Panel don't give you the same options as in Ubuntu, you're out of luck

Do you have sound in other applications? Is the problem only with media player? What version media player are you currently using?

You could also try reinstalling your audio driver.

I have the ordinary internal speakers (2) playing music on my laptop and they work fine, but I have a pair of (not old) wireless speakers and I though is there a way were possibly a setting could allow me to play music through all of them, it would be great to have my laptop and some speakers in another room playing music.

I've looked deep, but I thought maybe some experts know the trick.

I have had issues with Windows 7 and Vista search since I started using them. I am hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. If I search in non-indexed locations for a file that I know is in that location or its subdirectories somewhere, why does it sometimes never show up? Here is an example of what I mean:

Windows 7: I have relocated my documents folder to another partition (Drive D). The relocated folder has two subdirectories. I have a shortcut to each of the subdirectories in the quick launch toolbar.

Clicking on the first shortcut shows me the folder Under "Computer, Drive D." (D:\Documents\folder-name).

Clicking on the second shortcut though shows the folder listed under "Username." (Username\Documents\folder-name).

This seems strange. I would expect the shortcuts to show both of the folders under Drive D or both under Username.

Can anyone explain this?

A:Windows 7 shortcuts inconsistent

I know on my PC, Libraries like Documents, Pictures, and Music, etc have two locations by default. One is your profile's folder and one is in the all users profile. I'm guessing you only moved one. I personally remove the all users location from all my libraries. I'm the only user on my PC and I never store anything in those folders anyway. I like things clean with no clutter.

I first discovered this problem on my new laptop when trying to play a cd in media player, it would not play, and a message popped up saying, "windows media player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device there may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program or it may not be functioning properly" so i went to check this out in the control panel, with the audio devices section, and this told me that no sound device is connected. I get the feeling the laptop's speakers are not installed properly

any ideas would be much appreciated

A:speakers on my laptop???

Its not the speakers, its the sound card that has the problem.

Since you have a laptop you should be able to go to the manufacturer's website and download the new drivers and then install them.

If that doesn't work then please tell us what laptop you have and what version of Windows you are running.

I recently finished fixing up my old Acer Aspire 4520 laptop, I installed windows 7, auto updated all the drivers with driver booster and thought I was set.

I tried to play sound through the built in speakers, no luck, I plugged in headphones, works perfectly, I plugged in external speakers, perfect audio.

But the built in speakers dont work, and its a laptop so who wants to carry around external speakers?

Any help would be great.

Note: This may be related to my WEI issue, it gets stuck on the last thing and says it cant complete video playback testing. I went to the videos its supposed to test and tried to open them with windows media player which results in an error, however opening them with VLC works fine.

A:Laptop Speakers No Sound

Most techies avoid the programs/sites that provide drivers, such as driver booster. They get drivers from the PC or motherboard vendor in most cases. There are some that can be downloaded direct such as Intel drivers or Realtek sound.

However, if the hardware is compatible, Windows 7 will install most drivers during the install. Actually, other than Windows installing the generic, basic function, High Definition Audio Drivers rather than the sound chip's drivers (if its Win 7 compatible) Win 7 usually installs what is needed.

It looks like this was originally a Vista machine. Vista drivers are applicable to Windows 7 as Win 7 is basically "Vista improved".

But, the first thing to check, the Audio Playback Device should be set to "Speakers". If its set to something else you would not get any speaker audio.

I have an HP dv6000t laptop with XP. Recently, the internal speakers stopped working, and the only way for me to hear sounds is if I plug in headphones or external speakers.

Nothing is muted, and I noticed that when I open the 'Volume Control' window, then click on advanced on the bottom left, the 'Advanced Controls for Volume Control' window comes up and the Bass and Treble sliders are greyed out. They were not greyed out before.

If it helps, my Audio driver card thing is Conexant HD Audio and i believe the actual laptop internal speakers are altec Lansing.

Do you think uninstalling then reinstalling the audio driver will help? If so, can anyone point me to a step-by-step guide? I tried googling but i couldnt find anything really specific for my laptop.


A:No More Audio From Laptop Speakers.

Laptop audio can be such a pain!

Is there an external wheel or something to raise and lower the volume? Sometimes, it's set using the function key (fn) in conjunction with a couple of keys on the top right of the keyboard. Chances are you've disturbed some hardware setting rather than a software setting. Still, I'd think it would affect the speakers and external speakers evenly.

Always possible that whatever the speakers use to hook up has become disconnected . . .

Try this... Do you have ear phones for a Ipod or MP3 player or something CD player etc.. Connect that to the laptop headphone jack. See if you can hear sound? If not then you got a problem from the coffee spill and you're lucky the system came back on as most don't even get that far. I know I repair laptops an more..

I have a Dell Studio Laptop that wont play through the speakers anymore. I did see the previous threads about the speaker problems and I think it is part hardware and software issue. The reason why I think something can be done via software is that sometimes when I open an application and a good example is Skype, the sound will temporarily come out of the speakers and then it switches back to the headphone jack. The computer thinks there are headphones plugged in even when there aren't. I have tried disabling everything I cold find in different orders, tried uninstalling all audio drivers and reinstalled them but still nothing. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank You!

some kind of splitter or someting, like those headphone splitter that I can plug in my laptop, and then plug my speakrs to it....will that work?

A:connecting speakers to laptop

The 2.1 in the laptop only produces a 2.1 audio stream
You need to reprocess the sound to get 4.1, which is a 4.1 sound card's function.

An external device cannot truly create 4.1 from 2.1, the required info is not actually in the audio stream. The best you would get is a psuedo 4.1, if such a device actually exists,

Hello, I really hope you can help me. I have a Dell Inspirion...something laptop. Its only about 7 weeks old. two weeks ago, it had its hard drive replaced, but when I got it back the speakers would not play any sound. When I plugged my headphones in I could hear sound.

I've tried updating the drivers, and nothing. I went through every step in the "windows help" thing. And they still won't work. Is there a way to fix this without having to give my laptop back to Micro Center(store I bought it from) and having it sit in the back for 4 days before even looked at?

Hi, everyone, just bought a toshiba a100-sk9 and its great well except the first one had dead pixels... But now with this one there's a strange thing, The laptop speakers crackle with certain windows sound effects, start up shutdown and critical error. I have been playing abit of music on it but nothing too extensive but the thing is i can't hear the crackling during the music playing at all but when i do that buzzing bee test that comes on the realtek program u can hear it, so im just wondering if this is some hardware problem or what.

When I play a game or listen to music, etc I usually use headphones. Now I notice that even though the headphone jack is plugged in my laptop's speakers don't switch off. I attached two screenshots; they show that the game's sound is somehow linked to the speaker's volume and in the other that the headphone's volume is also linked to the system's volume. This means when I turn the volume down for the speakers then the headphones are also automatically turned down.

How do I fix this?


A:Laptop speakers don't switch off

Right click on the volume notification icon and select volume control options. From there you should be able to give your headphones their own volume control. I hope I understood your question correctly.

Hello. I've searched and seen other people with this same issue, but I haven't yet found a solution to the problem.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop running WinXP Media Center Edition and using SigmaTel audio.

My issue is that the computer always thinks there are headphones plugged in; I suspect this is caused by minor internal damage to the jack itself.

Is there a way to disable the headphone jack so the sound will go to the speakers? I know the jack is a physical switch, not a software one, but I'm hoping there is a driver or hardware device I can turn off/disable so the computer "forgets" it has a headphone jack, or some other indirect solution.

It will need to be repaired. The speaker goes through the jack first.

My V3-571G fell about 15inches and now the speakers don't work.  The earphone speaker works but when i take earphones out I have not sound at all.  I took it to a tech person and he did the usual checks to make sure all the settings were okay and tested the speakers and the laptop said everthing should be working but there was no sound.  He then took the back of the laptop off and looked at the speakers.  No apparent damage to the speakers at all.  Speakers in place, no damage, connections in place as well.  No visual reason for them to be not working.  Anyone have any ideas.  He said it would be quite costly to replace them.  The Soud driver is completely up to date.

Hi all, it's been a while.

Recently, I've been having problems with my sounds. My left and right speakers is unbalanced. My left speaker is a lot quieter than it was. I tried using an external speaker (my headphone if that counts) but i still get the same problem.

So, I was wondering if my speaker is at fault or is it my sound card?

BTW, my headphones are perfectly fine as it is barely used and I just bought it 2 weeks ago. I've also tried using it with my brother and sister's laptop and the left and right headphone produces the same volume.

I'm using HP Pavilion dv2500 Notebook PC.

Please help.

A:Laptop does not detect speakers

Try upgrading your sound card drivers, some crucial files may have become corrupted, if there is not a newer version available, uninstall them completely and then reinstall them. If the problem remains, make sure that none of the volume control settings are muted.
BTW, this is assuming you checked to make sure all connections and cables were connected correctly and that your speaker system is receiving power. Hope this works for you, good luck :grinthumb

Hi guys. I have an ADVENT Roma 2000 and my laptop speakers aren't working! I tried fixing it on my own but I decided to ask you, the experts.
I already tried:
1. sfc scannow (Scan was finished but there is still some errors in cbs.log that cant be repaired. And oh, is it normal for the scan to end at 98%)
2. enabling and disabling realtek in dev manager.(uninstall+restart is included)
> Like to add that in its properties it's saying, "the device is working properly"
3. downloading and installing the new update of realtek.
4. Putting external audio devices.(like headphones, earphones, etc.)
> Still I can't hear a sound from these.

I don't know but I think the pop-up message after I start my laptop, has something to do with it.

isdi.dll is missing

When playing DVDs my laptop's speakers are really very quiet. Yes, everything is cranked up. I know the speakers can go a lot louder. In MediaMonkey (which is a mediaplayer, obviously) there is the option to "level the playback volume" and then you can set the target volume in dB. This can drastically increase the volume, to the point of breaking the speakers (although I don't do this).

Is there a program that can do this to all output sounds?

And yes, I've read around and found that there is just a maximum output voltage for speakers that no software can increase, but I KNOW that they can go louder.

I have Realtek HD Audio Manager, Vista Home Premium 32 bit and can use a variety of progams to play DVDs: VLC, Media Player Classic, WMP and Nero Showtime (don't ask why I have so many, I use them all for different purposes).

A:quiet laptop speakers - but only sometimes

Welcome to TechSpot!

Why don't you hook-up the laptop directly to your home stereo system, if you have one instead of speakers. Just have to buy what is called Y-adapter...

Y-adapter is 1/8 male connector with two RCA left and right connectors for audio. Works the same way like using and IPOD. As for speakers you need to get a 5.1 mini system with enough watts say 80 to 150w comes with 5 speakers and active subwoofer. Plus wireless remote.

Hi I'm not sure if this is that right place to get help but,
I am having a problem with my sound on my laptop.

its a compaq presario R3000 running windows 7 really well and only works with ADI soundMAX integrated digital audio (SP29586) it took me awhile to get the driver working and now it plays sound but doesnt seem to have a jack detection so when I put my headphones in the jack it plays through both headphones and speakers.

just wanted to see if anyone could help me out with this...

Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Does the driver you're using have its own control panel and settings?

Windows 8.1
Genuius SW-G2.1 1250 external speakers
ASUS K56CB laptop

When tested on other devices, the sound system blows the roof off. On my laptop, it doesn't (max level on computer controls, media player and speakers knob is lower). I'm pretty sure it's not the soundboard, but I've desperately fiddled with drivers with no avail.
Sound actually starts being heard only after the knob goes past the quarter mark, and does not increase in level too much between 3rd quarter and max setting. Works fine when on my tablet, for example, though.

Edit: Also, volume is lower on right speaker

if i have blown the speakers on my laptop can they be fixed ?

A:i have blown the speakers on my laptop can they be fixed ?

mmorton Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Just about anything on a laptop can be "fixed" -- it's a matter of how much money you are willing to spend!At the least, you're looking at the cost to disassemble the laptop, remove the existing speakers, acquire new speaker, insert the new speakers into the laptop, and reassemble it.  That's mostly labor, and depending on where you are looking to get that work done, you could easily be looking at $75 per hour or more.  So, this could run into hundreds of dollars. This kind of damage is considered "customer induced failure" and is, in nearly all cases, NOT covered by standard warranties.  If you paid extra for a "full coverage" warranty, it may then be covered -- but you would have to check with your warranty provider. IF you want to find out how much HP would charge, my suggestion is for you to get in touch with the nearest Service Center.  Here is information on the Centers:  HP Notebook PCs - Using a Certified HP Service Center to Repair a Notebook PC | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck

Hi, i've got a Lenovo G50-70 laptop running Windows 10. The sound has worked fine until a couple of days ago when the speakers all of a sudden stopped working. Bluetooth speakers works just fine, but not the the laptops own speakers. Also there is only sound from the left headphone when I use headphones (i've tried several headphones, but no sound from the right)I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the audio driver.I've also turned off the enhancements at the speaker options.any idea?

My brother gave me the speaker set of ViewSonic computer speakers he no longer uses but it seems ridiculously difficult to get them working properly with my laptop I ve got an Acer Aspire model and I m running not working speakers separate for laptop Windows Vista separate speakers not working for laptop Nothing is muted it s plugged in correctly and it s not that they don t work at all but that my computer only allows the options of Stereo or Surround This is obviously a problem because I have only the side speakers not a full entertainment system set why would you have all that for a laptop anyway I am able to deselect rear speakers and sub but it automatically has the main pair selected on the test sounds diagram It seems that my computer reads the speakers I plugged in as the side speakers and is therefore still trying to direct some sound exclusively to the non-existent main pair therefore distorting the sound and typically making any voices in the music almost entirely muted I ve tried powering off and on the speakers unplugging and plugging in restarting my computer many times poking at the settings both through the sound icon next to the clock or through control panel and the stupid Acer eAudio menu What is particularly frustrating is that after poking around for an hour or two several days ago I managed to somehow get it working right - so I KNOW it s possible However I was stupid and took my laptop to another room yesterday and since then haven t been able to get it working again Any suggestions are greatly appreciated nbsp

Gooday all. I have a laptop set up for my entertainment area. I am using an HDMI cord from laptop to a screen and using the sound output to a set of surround sound speakers. This a pretty cheap set up,nothing fancy. I am trying to get all the speakers recognized by my Realtek Sound Management application. The Lasptop ( is only recognizing a 2 speaker stereo set up. How am I able to change this so as to be able to adjust settings to the 6 speakers of the system. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to configure speakers on Laptop.

Looking at the Speccy, I don't see anything other than RealTek HD Audio. If the laptop has a RealTek HD Audio Manager, have you tried setting the speaker type there?

Aside from the audio issue, I notice you only have 2GB of RAM. The 64 bit OS does you no good with only 2GB of RAM, and can be an issue with only the 2GB which is bare minimum for a 64 bit OS. The main reason for using a 64 bit OS is to use more than 4GB of RAM, since a 32 bit OS cannot address 4 GB (or more) of RAM.

Okay so for the last couple weeks i've been having issues with the sound on my laptop, i have a HP pavillion dv2000, and its just not working. it says it's working, its processing sound on the laptop, but it's not letting any sound come out of it. normally when i press the mute button on the keyboard part it turns a reddish color, that doesn't happen anymore. and my head phones don't work with it anymore either. i've been pushing this off not wanting to try to fix it or ask for help because i don't want my parents to think i broke my laptop, please help!

Like the title says -Laptop speakers don't headphones work, do speakers Laptop suddenly stop working one day after I turn on my computer from sleep mode it s been about - months now and they re still not working -Of course I ve restarted shut down hibernated sleep d my computer many times since then -I can plug in headphones and external speakers and they work just fine -My audio driver is enabled up Laptop speakers don't work, headphones do to date and works fine obviously since I can use headphones -The speakers AREN T broken proof is that my computer has a little startup quot Republic of Gamers quot logo with an explosion sound and it plays just fine through the speakers -There was an incident about a few days before this happened ASUS laptops are known to do this where they short circuit and shut down if you accidentally touch a headphone plug into the USB port I m not sure if this contributed since my speakers worked fine afterward nbsp

Whenever i want to play music or watch a movie in a public place, ill put in some headphones. but right now, whenever i plug them in, i get sound from both my headphones and my laptop speakers. It used to switch automatically from speakers to headphones but it wont anymore.

I have Realtek HD Audio with Vista 64 bit.

Is there any way to get it back to the way it was?

A:Laptop speakers and Headphones at same time

Go to Control Panel - Sound - and explore all possible settings ("configure" and "properties").

I think the switch is a part of the connection, and something in the headphone jack is loose or broken, but it's worth looking for a setting. I didn't find any such setting on my Vista, but I have a different sound card.

Got given a Phillips Ipod dock as a gift, which I like, but I'm wondering how I could use it as a speaker for my laptop in addition. No extra cables or connectors came with it, it's a Phillips DS3100. It has on the back room for the power supply, an 'mp3 link', and a usb connector. Picture attached.

I'm assuming it's possible to use it how I want, just wanting confirmation on the best way to do it. Can easily go an buy a cable if I have to.


A:Help using Ipod dock as speakers for laptop

Alright, you aren't even trying. The MP3 link is a standard 1/8" stereo cable. One cable from your headphone jack to the MP3 jack will do the trick. Looks like this on both ends.
