Do Sound Cards Effect The Output of Sound To External Speakers?

Q: Do Sound Cards Effect The Output of Sound To External Speakers?

I am getting a laptop. Right now I am deciding between regular "High Definition Audio 2.0" and a "ExpressCard Sound Blaster X-Fi Laptop Sound Card with Wireless Receiver Bundle". The latter is 134 dollars more. Would the latter make the output of sound better on external speakers. Say if you're a DJ, and you use the laptop, would the sound coming out of the speakers at those high volumes be much better if you have the better soundcard? Or does it not have any effect on the output sounds? Thanks!

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It affects the external output even more than the one from the integrated speakers.

I have a new x-fi titanium. I'm using the optical out to my amp for stereo sound mix. None of the x-fi effects do anything to alter the sound in anyway? At 1st no sound except windows test sounds would even output through the optical out, then all of a sudden it worked for some reason? but none of the bass boost settings are having any effect and the output is low? Anybody have any experience with these sound cards? It's OEM and the instructions on the disc have broken links to retrieve the data online?

Hi

Have you selected SPDIF when using your optical out? If so, then all the x-fi features are turned off.

Hi,I was wondering if lousy sound cards could lead to speakers emmitng cracking noises even at a low volume ? I have a pair of Altecs so im sure it isnt my speakers that cause the cracking.
 

A:Speakers And Sound Cards

could be speakers as a damaged speaker will do that.

try making sure all the speaker wires external and internal are routed away as much as possible from other devices.

Sometimes overdriving the windows volume control will cause this.
Turn the windows master volume down and the speaker volume up

Testing the AMD HDMI sound output gave the following error message:

Device in use by another application?

This FIX worked for this hardware configuration.

? MSI motherboard
? Realtek Audio onboard (built into motherboard)
? AMD Video board installed withHDMI cable to monitor
? See how the Device Manager sound devices should look when correctly configured below.

Issue(s):

1. The Realtek HDMI Drivers had been assigned to the AMD HDMI card under Device Manager, Sound, Video and Game Controllers.

2. There are multiple hardware devices/drivers that are conflicting.

Actions Required:

1. There are 2 instances of the AMD HDMI card that should be shown under Device Manager.

2. You must uninstall the Realtek hardware and drivers so that only the AMD HDMI device is showing.

3. The AMD HDMI and Microsoft device drivers must be assigned to the AMD hardware.

How to fix:
1. Under the Device Manager sub-heading ?Audio inputs and outputs?
? AMD HDMI Output (High definition Audio device)
? Right click and select Properties, Driver, should show driver provided by: Microsoft

2. Under the heading ?Sound, Video and Game Controllers?
? AMD High definition audio device
? Right click on the device to display the menu window
? Select Properties, Driver tab
? Driver Provider should say: Advanced Micro Devices
If the driver provider is wrong you will need to uninstall the Device and the Driver.
3. Right Click on:
? AMD High definition Audio device.
? Select: Uninstall
? You must also check the box to removethe drivers for the hardware.
After the AMD High Definition Audiodevice is uninstalled.

At the topof the Device Manager screen select ?Scan for Hardware Changes?
The system will detect the AMD HDMI Sound Card and install the correct AMD sound drivers.
Verify that the HDMI hardware has been detected and the correct driver has been assigned to it.
Your Device Manager should look like something like this when you have the AMD HDMI sound working :

Make sure that all other conflicting sound devices are disabled under Device Manager ? Sound, as shown below:


Additional information:
If you have downloaded and installed updated Realtek sound drivers they will overwrite your working AMD HDMI drivers and the same problem will occur where the AMD HDMI won?t output sound to your monitor.
Uninstall the Realtek hardware anddrivers.Then under Device Driver you will need to select Action, then select Scan for Hardware Changes. Verify that the configuration is correct as shown above.




I have now worked out it's def a driver conflict between what appears to be Microsoft's standard driver for audio (that comes with Windows 8 via online driver collection) and realtek or amd drivers (when you try to install either of them).

I had noticed no matter which driver I installed it would always show "High Definition Audio Bus" with an exclamtion mark and it was driving me crazy as couldn't get HDMI to be recognised for audio - only video (ie extend or mirror displays worked fine).

I finally had a eureka moment this weekend and started a new install of Windows 8.1 BUT this is what I did:
1. I disabled the onboard sound via the BIOS
2. I went through the windows setup but on setup I chose customize settings rather than express settings - in here you need to ensure (for now) that it won't try and find/download and install drivers via windows update so turn this off for now
3. Now when I finished the rest of the setup and got into Windows I simply downloaded the realtek AMD driver from: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/down...Down=false
Select "ATI HDMI Audio Device" (2.70) and run and install this.
4. Restart your PC and you will have the HDMI audio working now. I tested this with the AMD Catalyst Drivers too and it did work ok too but I'd read in a few places it was better to use the R... Read more

A:I'd like to have sound output through 2 sets of speakers at same time

First off, I use a Trust 5.1 surround system and I bought it knowing that I was getting what I paid for :I

But on to your problem, with Realtek it is easily possible to output to two sets of speakers at once (as long as your dock has a single 3.5mm for input).
Unfortunately I don't have Realtek anymore since I bought my X-Fi so I'm going purely from memory here. In the Realtek control panel (accessible through Windows control panel), there is the ability to toggle front panel audio concurrently with your normal, rear port audio. Luckily Google has a far better memory than I.

I have been reading the reviews of several sound cards. I have not been able to find out if the sound cards have enough output to drive speakers or, as I suspect, you need a separate amplifer/receiver to drive the speakers.
If that is the case then it would seen the amp would have as much impact on the quality of the sound as the sound card. Also some amps may would better with some cards than others?
So, do I need a sound card and an amp/receiver?

Most soundcards can drive a tiny pair of speakers or headphones. Most PC speaker sets are self powered. If you're like me, you'll step up to the pump and get a good DAC, power amp, and speakers.

Hi all

I want to get a new sound card (prob. an Asus) but all of the ones that I want are 7.1.

I don't want to change my speakers because I just want really good music (not really bothered about games and surround movies), and the speakers are 2.1.

My question is: will these sound cards reconfigure for a basic left/right/sub speaker set?

My motherboard is designed for surround sound too, and it has never given me a problem. I want to make sure that there is something similar going on for dedicated sound cards.

Many thanks in anticipation.

A:7.1 Sound Cards - Do they Reconfigure for 2.1 Speakers?

You can still configure for 2.1 speakers, its just what the maximum capability of the sound card is. Just connect your speakers to the GREEN speaker jack (or equivalent if its something different) and then set your speaker system in the Sound Panel.

I'm NOT a gamer. If I upgraded for Soundblaster Live 5.1 and Logitech Z 340s to Voyetra Turtle Beach Santa Cruz and Logitech Z 540s would I hear a noticable difference?
 

A:comparing sound cards and speakers

The SoundBlaster is better than the Turtle Beach IMHO. The Z40s are certainly better & not a bad deal for $80. If you can scrap together another fifty go for the Z560s. Much better speakers for $130.
Other than that it all depends on what you use your PC for. The 560s will make it sound like a theater if you watch DVDs on your PC. You'll like either upgrade for CD music. If CD music or MP3s are your passion you may be able to jack your sound card into your home stereo. I can't remember what jacks the SB Live has so I'd have to check otherwise it's just like adding any other auxilry item to your stereo reciever.

With Dell Support Assist microphone test -- earphone playback is good, on-board speaker is terribly scratchy. The sound card lists as "ATI high Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC."
The laptop is Dell Studio 15 (1555) running windows 7 Professional, 236GB used, 214GB free space, Intel P8700 2.53 GHz Processor, 64 bit OS, 4GB memoryThe built-in speakers used to sound good but now they are too scratchy to understand. However the headset and external speakers (both 3.5 mm jack interface) sound good and a HDMI connected projector sounds good.
I will appreciate advice.

A:On-board speakers are scratchy but external speakers & headphones sound good?

Hello. As a test, switch from the IDT audio driver to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "IDT High Definition Audio Device".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the IDT driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If you get the noise while using the native driver then it is not a driver issue, which would mean there is a strong chance of speaker failure, particularly since the noise is not in headphones. If you would like to replace the speakers I can point you to the service manual.

Hello there! I wanted to ask a question.

Can the PC Speakers be damaged by increasing the Sample Rate and Bit Depth of the sound output?


My speakers are very old(~10 years or so) and my PC is quite new, and a friend of mine set the audio format to 24bit/192.000 Hz and the speakers stopped responding.
I have an on-board sound card (Realtec HD audio on Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P model). My speakers have not had any problems at all for the past 10 years, and just stopped working after setting the settings to that (24bit/192kHz)

Any ideas?


Thanks a lot!

PS: If you can scientifically support your opinion, it would be even greater, as I'm still arguing with my friend, but my field of expertice has nothing to do with computers or electronics


Thanks again for your time,

A:Can the Speakers be damaged from modifying the sound output settings?

The can be damaged if you "modify" by turning up the volume to excessive output... Many speakers will burn out very quickly.
But what you describe as modifying the Sample Rate and Bit Depth won't damage the speakers... But can sometimes damage some of the other sound electronics.

CountVeggie welcome to the Seven Forum.

Did you install the driver that came with the external or is it just running on the default Windows 7 USB audio driver? The reason your rear's aren't working at the moment is that Windows is seeing it as a 7.1 set up and not 5.1, with the rear's showing as side's.

So the two speakers I use for my computer are not completely working. When plugged into my computer, the main speaker with the controls and stuff gives out sound but the other speaker doesn't.

I tried plugging the speakers instead into my phone and both speakers had sound coming out, so I thought it's probably the audio jack on the computer that is the problem.

Is there any way to maybe replace the jack or use the other jacks on the computer for the speakers?

Hi Questionerer,

Seen as though you have tested with your mobile phone and sound IS coming out of your two speakers, it is safe to say that the speaker is not at fault.

I think that your computer is outputting sound panned right, in other words its only sending the audio information to the left side speaker.

To help you with this problem and to eliminate any driver problems please can you do the following:
Go to: Start > Type: msconfig.exe - Press Enter
Go to the tab 'Boot'
Bottom of the window there are check-boxes, tick the one called 'Boot log'
Press Apply/OK
Shutdown the PC
Wait 10 seconds
Turn on PC
Go to - C:\Windows and find a file called ntbtlog.txt

Short answer ... probably not.

However, there are some high quality dacs on the market that will connect to your computer by USB or Firewire and deliver mind blowing good sound... There's a lot of them and at a very wide range of prices, so do some google searches....

But do let me caution you... unless you have exceptionally good audio gear the audible improvements are likely to be lost to plastic speaker boxes, weak power supplies and poorly designed sub-woofers....

DAC vs Soundcard on high end gear such as McIntosh Audio... "WOW"
DAC vs Soundcard on $199 home theater in a box... "Why did I waste my money".

I have heard of people experiencing problems when their video and sound cards are close to each other (and i only have one available pci slot). But, do you think that any latency in sound would be experienced do to the usb connection.What do you guys think is a better solution?here is a link to the page on best buys web site for this card http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1091101682270by the way, the price is the same for the pci model and usb model of the same device, so that is not an issue

Hello,
I am using an external 5.1 USB Sound Card (Best USB UB-003 5.1Ch USB) but there is no sound in Rear output. I want it to use with my Herculies MP3 E2 DJ mixer controller.

I am trying to keep eye on the Tracks while crossfading the songs by my headphone like DJs do.

Front Out is working fine.

Please help me.

The PC is your specs is a desktop but the problem relates to a laptop, If you can provide more details of the actual laptop this may help troubleshooting

Also you state that the speakers are USB - are they just USB or USB powered with a jack for connection to the headphone socket?

Hi guys...
I just plugged my Onkyo 6.1 Channel (S-680) to my computer. I connected the receiver to the Digital Out port of my motherboard (Intel 915GV Chipset-Asus PTGD1 - LA). It uses the Realtek ALC880 drivers. Whenever I open Sound Effect Manager and do the Speaker Test, sound comes only from my front speakers. The rears/centre/sub all light up but no sound is played. However, while running games/music/films I get sound from all my speakers (though not very satisfactory and not real surround sound). Can anyone please help me with this?

Also, I can't open Realtek HD Audio Manager (RTHDCPL.exe). Only RTLCPL.exe (Sound Effect Manager) works. When I click on RTHDCPL.exe nothing happens. Please do help out.

Thanks.
 

A:No Sound From Surround/Centre/Subwoofer In Realtek Sound Effect Manager Test

try this:

1) try to go to the settings of your sound effect manager & there are selections there for 2.0,2.1.5.1 or what ever you may find that corresponds to your speaker channel.

2) if nothing corresponds to the given selections,try to download the latest audio driver from your motherboard's manufacturer website.

3) otherwise,you need to plug-in a sound card that has the feature to play with 6.1 channel audio.

goodluck

Just set up new asus essentio series desktop with windows 8.1. After initial set up the monitor speakers are on but no the connected external speakers. I assume I need to make some change in the control panel. Is that true. I want sound to come through external speakers.

A:No sound coming from external speakers

Sounds like you may have a monitor with an HDMI connection. If this is the case, Windows automatically defaults the default audio playback device to the HDMI, if an HDMI cable is connected to the PC. If you want the PC sound you must manually change the default audio playback device to "Speakers" (PC sound). And you will likely have to do this each time you boot up. I was looking at a new monitor at either Sam's Club or Costco and decided against it as it was an HDMI connected monitor.

The Sound/Playback panel can be accessed from start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sound

I have been struggling with getting my external speakers to work on my laptop for a few months now. My laptop (Acer) runs on Vista and I plug my speaker into the SPDIF jack on the front of my computer. When I plug the speakers in a bubble pops up saying "A Jack has been plugged in." but there is no sounds. There are no little red x's on my little speaker icons and it seems that the computer thinks that the speakers are working just fine. If I hook my speakers up to my iPod they work just fine so I don?t understand why the won?t work on my laptop.

Hello,

I hope someone here can solve this problem because I'm at my wits end.

I installed a Microsoft headset called "LifeChat LX-3000" with a built in microphone. I only want to use it to make online videos for my business. Everything worked fine until I unplugged the headset. I can't get any sound at all from my computer. The internal speakers and external speakers give me no sound. The only way I can hear anything is by wearing the headset. I finally gave up and uninstalled the headset, but I still can't get any sound.

Any suggestions?? Why in the world can't I get my sound back??

A:[SOLVED] No Sound Through Internal or External Speakers

First, I am assuming that you still have your speakers hooked up the female mini pin that is green.

Second, go to
Start > Control Panel > Sound and Audio Device properties

3. Click on audio tab. Default device listed should be your onboard audio or sound card. If is not selected, select it and hit apply. If nothing is in the selection box, you may have to reinstall or re-enable your audio device.

4. Click on volume tab. Make sure mute is not selected.

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully someone can assist with this annoying problem. My mother's computer, for some unknown reason, plays all sounds and music through the actual PC tower AND the external speakers.

We want to disable the sound coming from the PC, as when she has music on or is playing World of Warcraft etc, its really annoying to hear the tinny sounds through the PC tower. We just want to hear it through the external speakers.

She's running a HP Compaq dc5700 PC with Windows XP. The default sound is via RealTek HD Audio.

It hasn't always done this - its a recent issue.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I just bought a Dell Inspriron 15 7000 series laptop. I want to use a pair of Altec Lansing desktop speakers with it to listen to music. They are probably about 5 years old and work fine with my ipad and with my older HP laptop that I just replaced. However, when I plug them into the Dell, they make a popping sound and then continue to pop somewhat randomly while I'm playing music. The internal laptop audio works fine on the Dell itself, for videos, PC sounds, etc.
Any idea how to fix this so I can use the speakers? Maybe a different driver? I don't want to screw up the internal sound.
Thanks,

Hardware tab - Windows says the hardware is working OK

I've also removed the driver and reloaded it. still nothing.

Is there anything else I should try? I doubt it is the motherboard.....

A:No sound from internal or external speakers after XP reload on laptop

It may not be the correct driver. There are some cases that the OS wopuld not report any abnormalities but the driver may not be the exact driver you need. Identify the sound device you need ( you can use unknown device identifier for that ) and download the apropriate driver.

Also check the microphone socket incase something got stuck in there.

Lets clear the old usb drivers out of the way.
 
Download this tool to the machine in question unzip it to the desktop.
drivecleanup.zip
 

 
Move the 32 or 64 bit version of DriveCleanup.exe to C:\Windows\System32 Folder.
To do this hit the windows key and r at the same time and type the File Location C:\Windows\System32 in the run box.
Drag the 32 or 64 bit version of DriveCleanup.exe from the desktop into the C:\Windows\System32 Folder
.

Then Close all applications power your machine down and remove all usb devices except keyboard and mouse.
Then turn the machine back on and see below.
 

Open a command prompt by hitting the windows key and r at the same time and type cmd into the run box and hit enter.
Once the CMD window opens Type  or copy and paste drivecleanup.exe Hit enter.
 
 
This will clear all old usb drivers on your machine and hopefully help your issue.
 
Reboot and test.

now ive ordered some krk rokik rp5 g2 monitor speakers but i want to be able to play music from laptop with media player etc, through the monitor speakers at good sound quality.

i no your can get cheap converters, but i imagine a usb sound card with rca outputs would be a lot better yes?

budget around ?70 or so. heard creative aint that good for music, more gaming, films, and been told m-audio or tascam are good for audio.

any1 else recommend decent soundcards etc

A:external sound card advice for use with monitor speakers

I have a recording studio. I use Focusrite (British Company) recording interface unit and also drives my Samson Resolv studio monitors and headphones.

Would it be possible to set up my laptop so that I can get kind of surround sound using the built-in speakers along side my 2.1 speakers? I only have 2 jacks, 1 mic/line in and 1 speaker jack.

I did try poking around in a few places but could not find anything.

I'm not necessarily looking for perfect 3D sound, stereo would be great to. I just think doing this may maximize the sound range.

Are you using the Dell supplied IDT driver for the sound? If not, that is the first step. I do a lot of support on the Dell user forum and we have found that non-Dell drivers either do not work or do not work correctly.

I see two listings in the E6400 IDT drivers. What looks like a driver and the other looks like a driver update. If you are using the Dell sound driver, install the update and see if that helps. Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

If I unplug the speakers, let the OS realize they were disconnected, then plug them back in again, it works fine.

It was that Windows XP search dog. When you ctrl + f to open the search side bar in a window there is an animated dog that seems innocuous. Every 15 minutes or so it will scratch itself and make that noise twice. As long as that search side bar is open, minimized or not, that noise will persist.

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

A:Reoccurring low sound issue affecting two sound cards

Hello and welcome Sakonoso now to me it seems that the audio through the USB port might be coming from the board audio and not the sound cards hence why it is ok. Having said that usually the on board stuff is usually cut off if there is a sound card installed.

Now it seems to narrow it down a little if this is the case and there are some things you can run sfc and a chkdsk to see if there is anything going on in the system

Hello, I used to have Vista on this computer and didn't have audio problems. I've upgraded to Windows 7 and use the latest drivers available for my sound card (Striker 7.1). I have also tried not using these drivers and instead using a USB sound card (Sennheiser that comes with one of their headsets).

My problem is that, some time after booting up my computer, the audio starts skipping/glitching every ~30 seconds (if not more). This will usually happen with almost 100% frequency after the computer goes into sleep mode. A reboot fixes this for some time and then it starts over. This happens with all audio sources (moves in VLC, music in iTunes, youtube, etc.)

I have absolutely no idea what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Sound skips after some time (tried diff. sound cards)

This is apparently a fairly common problem in windows 7. Just google these forums for 'audiodg.exe', and you'll see tons of other people reporting the exact same thing.

I have the same problem and my solution ended up being to write a cmd script I can launch that runs

Code:
net stop audiosrv
net start audiosrv
This shuts audiodg.exe down and starts it back up. Sad part is I have to run this anywhere from every 10 to 30 minutes. Extremely annoying.

I've got one W7 PC, with one Creative X-Fi soundcard in it, on a motherboard that has built in audio.

I'd like to play two music tracks on my PC at the same time, using any browser or browsers. I'd like one track to be heard on one set of speakers, and the other track to be heard from another set of speakers.

To potentially make things a bit easier, I'm happy to either run two instances of any one particular browser (eg two Firefox browsers open at the same time), or run two seperate browsers (eg one Firefox and one IE).

If there is any software that needs to be bought to achieve this, then I'm happy to buy it. Thanks a lot for any recommendations/advice on this subject.

BTW, the music must be played from a browser(s).

In some cases, if the speakers are cheaply made and not sheilded, they can acutally pickup radio waves (especially if you live near a radio tower). Does the "Talk radio" continue if the speakers are on, while the computer is off?

Intel P8700 2.53 GHz Processor

The built-in speakers used to sound good but now they are too scratchy to understand. However the headset sound is good. According to the Dell Support Assist utility, the sound card is "ATI high Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC."
Microphone test -- earphone playback is OK, on-board speaker terrible.

A:Why would on-board speakers sound scratchy but headphones sound OK?

You Dell Studio 1555 laptop uses IDT HD audio driver for the built in laptop speakers.
The ATI HD audio driver is only used if an HDMI connection to an HDMI monitor (with an HDMI audio/video cable) is used.

possibly a driver conflict with IDT audio, built-in speakers may be malfunctioning or dirty (gotta have them repaired if it's a hardware problem and not a software problem). just listing the possible causes for the scratchy sound.

So you're trying to get audio to play on your TV from your laptop? Since you said the video is fine it's obviously not the video drivers. It sounds like the sound output is configured wrong. I don't think it would be labeled as HDMI. HDMI is just DVI with HD Audio. Try altering your sound settings to see what you can get.

Hi,

I am pretty stumped with this one.

I upgraded my office to windows 7 32bit pro. 10 computers all the same, but one of them has audio issues.

When I play the sample music the volume bar shows the equalizer bouncing like it is sending out audio, but any speakers I plug into it produce no sound.

I have tried: different speakers, different jacks, 4 on the back 1 on the front, updating the audio driver, windows updates, rebooting, and yelling and now I am out of ideas.

When I use a usb based headphone I can get sound.

it lists the default sound device as a S/pdif high definition audio device...
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks.

A:The volume bar shows sound but no sound through speakers.

re: S/pdif high definition audio device

That's the digital output, you won't get any sound with that. Does it show "Speakers" listed in the same Window?

Right click on the Microsoft speaker icon in the taskbar, select playback devices, if you have Speakers listed, single left click on them and select "Set Default".

If you don't have speakers listed, make sure you have a pair of speakers plugged into the light green audio jack in the back then open the playback devices window as above... right click in the middle of the window and enable both "show disconnected/disabled devices".

Any speakers showing up yet?

A:Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

A:Solved: No output to headphones - even though sound manager shows an output

1 Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2 re your disclaimer - no need for any apologies, but your post is a little difficult to read, we would have been better with separation of the main points by paragraph spacing. However I think I have the situation
3. Lets start with the basic possible causes.
4. I do not know that monitor but the jack for the speakers is connected to the audio from HDMI input is it the 3.5mm just in case there is another jack socket
5. Please see screenshot and check levels
as if volume is right down there will of course be no sound
6. I cannot understand why the headphones are shown as the Realtek speakers they are I thought usually shown as second ouptut

A:No output to headphones - even though sound manager shows an output

Welcome,
My speed in W8 is much less than my speed in W7 but I'm wondering what would happen if you were to do a cold boot with everything plugged in. In the past the system does an inventory of connected devices when it boots. Sometimes on a warm boot it reads the cached inventory. Maybe . . . .

I am trying to create a sound effect for my dj mixing software but the only way the program accepts the effect if its in the .dll format. My effect is .mp3 is there any way I can convert it.

I think it has something to do with java. I downloaded the SDK kit for my Windows XP.

Any help would be apreciated.

A:new sound card -- no sound thru speakers with sub

Welcome to techsupportguy smoothcrimin
I think that you might have a problem with drivers ... Basically using the old SB drivers with the new SB card. It's normal to have a new entry in Device Manager ( why creative labs makes it , i really don't know). Try and remove all the entries in Device Manager ( SB wise) , restart in Safe Mode( if you have win98 or win ME , for win2k or XP is a different story) and do the same thing. Power down , then go ahead move the card to a different slot. Power up and install the lastest drivers for SB ( from www.soundblaster.com )

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could help me please? My volume is always playing at 100% but the sound coming out of my speakers is probably half of that. The speakers that I'm using is the "High Definition Audio Device". And I have enhanced the "Loudness equaliser" but it's still the same. Thanking you in advance Reena

Everything has been working fine with my computer forever and I have always had sound with no problem. Late last night I decided to stay up late and to not wake anyone else up I used a pair of headphones to listen to late night radio via the internet. The headphones worked great. When I was done for the night I turn the computer off per usual, though having unconnecting my headphones from the speakers.

This morning when I got up and turn my computer on I had no sound coming from my speakers. I do have sound from the headphones. I have no idea what is causing this and definitely have no idea how to fix it. Can someone here help please????

So the same thing happens to me. I'm listening to music while I work. I make a call and plug in a headset so people can understand me better on Skype. Then unplug headset to listen to music again, there is no sound. I can open a new browser and continue listening (jango.com). Built in speakers on a laptop. So all the suggestions above about 'is the volume muted?', 'are the speakers plugged in?', 'did the speakers get damaged?' yada yada, all don't apply. Anybody know how to get that browser to play again? I even close the tab and repopen jango in another, doesn't help. Can't play youtube, etc. All sound from that browser session is going to oblivion. Where do I set it to go back to speakers?

Thanks.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

We need to find out if this is a browser problem or something with your pc. Do you get sound with any installed media players, eg, Windows Media Player, Vlc, etc....?

First, let me say that I am a sound novice! I recently started a vinyl ripping project. My onboard sound does not support 24 bit depth recording at 96 kHz sampling rate, so I purchased an external USB card with phono preamp. It works just fine for my project. But as long as external sound card is plugged into a USB port, it takes control of all sound. I'd like to be able to toggle back to my onboard audio when I'm not ripping vinyl so I can listen through my system speakers. I have experimented with Windows audio controls, but have not found a way to do this. Is it possible?

Hey guys,
I just recently bought a Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit external sound card to connect my 5.1 speaker set into. I plug the Sound Blaster into my laptop which runs Windows Vista Business.
I have been able to get all the speakers working with the Windows drivers installed using the "Virtual Sound" option (Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers -> Enhancements.) Windows tests all speakers correctly also.
However, when I install the updated Creative drivers it will continue to use only 2 speakers even with DVD's etc... even though Windows understands I am using 5.1
I would just leave it without the Creative drivers, however I need them in order to record audio properly through its inputs.
Has anyone else encountered this, or know how to fix this? Damn Vista always causing problems
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bruce

The Conexant HD Audio Sound Driver was replace by High Definition Audio Device after i update to Windows 10 Home Version 1511 from 1011

Now if i want to plug my earphones to the left side of the computer where the audio jack socket is located the sound does not transfer to my earphones except i will change the default sound device from speakers to headphones.
How can i set it to automatically when i plugin my headphones/earphones/external speaker automatically transfer the sound to this device without changing the settings?

And also SmartAudio in the Control Panel is not working ether it says "Failed To Initialize SmartAudio The Application will now exit" Error message.

How can i fix this?

A:Sound does not transfer to the External Sound devices Automatically

The first thing that needs to be done is get the correct sound driver from Toshiba. If it came with Windows 8.1, the 8.1 driver is valid for Win 10. If it came with Windows 7, install the Win 7 driver in a Win 7 compatibility mode (what I did on my Toshiba Satellite) to get it working.

The "High Definition Audio" driver is a generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver.

Hello,

I am having distortion issues with my HP Pavilion ze4547wm laptop.

My audio from the laptop speakers seems to sound good, but when I plug the laptop into my home sound system, my music sounds very basse and distorted.

I checked the device manager, but the sound card( ALi Audio Wave ) seems to be working properly

The same with the codecs, or do I have too many? IMA ADPCM Audio Codec
Microsoft ADPCM Audio Codec
Microsoft CCITT G.711 Audio Codec
Microsoft GSM 6.10 Audio Codec
DSP Group TrueSpeech(TM) Audio Codec
msg723.acm
Windows Media Audio Codec
Sipro Lab Telecom Audio Codec
Fraunhofer IIS MPEG Layer-3 Codec
Microsoft PCM Converter

Thanks for your attention to this matter. I use this laptop at youth sporting events for sound effects and music.
