No Sound HP Pavilion G6

Q: No Sound HP Pavilion G6

Hi,I used IoBit Driver Installer to update my drivers and now my sound doesn't work. I checked other forums and tried:- soft & hard reboot- tried both Chrome and Firefox- both manually and used HP support to uninstall and reinstall the IDT driver - checked speakers in volume control was on default - undo the update but a warning sign saying a firewall or antivirus is blocking it. Tried to turn it off and didn't help After the 1st Hard Reboot it worked. I put it to sleep that night and then the next day it stopped again and hasn't worked since. None of the other solutions have worked. Can someone help please? Thanks

My new desktop bought today has no sound at all...the speakers won't even turn on! It has no Audio Manager program? When clicking on the audio icon B&O an error message shows...this is just out of the box!!! And yes it even says in the manual to connect audio cable to "Black" output on back of PC??? It doesn't have a black audio, blue, orange...never heard of a black connector...unless you have to use headphone port?

Hi gottea, Please review the search results for your PC here. There are four chioces. I am linking you to the US model which may be incorrect. Here is an HP troubleshooting document. It may provide some additional tips for solving this problem. Have you tried installing IDT audio using HP's Recovery Manager? As you have done a factory restore this may not help. One thought would be if you are using an HDMI connection to your monitor. Windows may be setting the default audio to HDMI instead of IDT audio. You may have a hardware problem. This is a possibility based on the age of your PC (brand new!) and doing a factory recovery failed to correct the problem. Contact HP Support if the troubleshooting advice per the above document fails. Jaco ****I am not an HP employee**** Please give a" Kudos, Thumbs Up" if advice received is relevant or" Accept as Solution" to assist other forum users having a similar problem. HP Products:810-150se Desktop17t-j000 NotebookH8 1380t CTO Desktop560z Desktop

First, I am a novice user. I have a Hp Pavilion 9680C desktop (Win98SE).

The speakers are not working-in fact there is no sound at all coming from the computer (with or without speakers). The computer came with Polk audio speakers that mount on the side of the monitor. At first I thought they were not working but I removed them and plugged in a set of CREATIVE speakers but still no sound.

Any idea what the problem could be?

I checked for a conflict in the Device Manager and from everything I can tell there should be sound.

A:Hp pavilion dv6 no sound

Look at the sticker on the case and advise what the product number is so we can determine the exact model number of your HP dv6 laptop.


Go into Control Panel - Device Manager, then click the + in Sound Video And Game Controllers, then advise what's listed in that heading.

If there's an Other Devices heading, advise what's listed there too.

Are there any entries with a question mark(?) or an exclamation mark(!) next to them?

A:No sound from right headphone-hp pavilion dv6


I have had this happen to me. I know of no software settings that can configure sound to come out of only the right or left side of a headphone, unless you are testing it for sound. Have you tried plugging in regular speakers? My guess is it would have the same result as the headphones. For me, the cause of this was the jack itself. You might have a rear and forward headphone port (green), so try them both to see if one or the other is working/not working. What I mean to say is, perhaps the jack itself is broken.

I have an HP pavilion zt100 laptop, Windows XP Professional SP2 (legit), about 4 years old, and the sound only works intermittently. Sometimes, I turn it on and the sound just doesn't work, everything seems to be fine, but no sound is coming out. I can play an audio file (I just use Windows Media Player) and adjust the volume, but nothing is coming out. The weird thing is that if I click the mute button, there's a little blip of sound, or sometimes it will play for a few seconds before the mute kicks in. Before, I would just restart the computer once or twice until the sound came back, but today I've restarted it like 15 times and still have nothing.

I'm attempting to connect a logitec X-530 surround sound system to this new PC. PC has a single audio output jack (green) and has an HDMI output jack. Logitc has green, black and orange plugs. The PC is advertised as supporting 5.1 surround but if I am correct then that means more than just a single green audio out plug is required. Is there a way to use HDMI through a converter or is there a way to use the single audio output through a converter to plug in the green, black and orange jacks that the logitech requires? Alternately, is there an audio card that I could install on this machine to provide the required output connections?

Ran a Windows 7 upgrade 32bit on the dv6324, everything works alright except for the sound. However, the weird thing is -- it appears as if the sound card drivers are installed and working properly. In fact, the volume bar is even green, and you can slide it around as if it was properly working -- just no sound comes out from the speakers. I have tried multiple drivers, including the vista 32 drivers (ran in compat mode) and supposed win7 drivers (found from the microsoft catalog) but nothing seems to work. Windows Update doesn't find anything. Anyone else have an issue similar to this? Or have any ideas as to what may fix it? HP hasn't posted Win7 drivers for this model, yet....shocker.

Hi HP! My girlfriend recently bought an HP Pavilion Model QCWB335 and she is experiencing issues with crackling sounds coming from the speakers.

What should be done in order to solve this issue? Best Regards, Jakob and Katarina

A:Crackling sound from speakers on HP Pavilion

Hi @emmikatarina , Welcome to the HP Support Forums!   I understand that you are getting a crackling sounds coming from the speakers of your HP Pavilion Notebook PC. I will try my best to help you with this issue. Here are some instructions from SuperMario1 on how to resolve this. 1. Go into Control Panel, then Sound.2. Under the Playback tab, double click on Speakers to open Properties. 3. Go to Advanced tab. In the drop down, select the highest quality stereo output. 4. Click Apply and close all windows. If that didn't help, then here's round 2: 1. Instead of the Playback tab, go to the Recording tab. 2. Double click on Stereo Mix. 3. Go to Advanced tab, and select highest quality from the drop down. 4. Click Apply and close all windows. These steps should be enough to resolve the issue. If not, I would recommend a System Restore next, if the issue began recently. I want you to bring the computer back to the earliest restore point possible, in an attempt to dodge whatever caused the issue. Here is a document on how to perform a System Restore: System Restore If the issue is not yet resolved, then please answer the following: 1. Does this issue only occur on online videos (to be certain, test something using Windows Media Player)? If so, is it only YouTube (to be certain, play a video from another site)? 2. Do any other devices in your house behave this way when you are streaming music? Specifically, if you have another device in the same physical location of the laptop, will it behave the same way? 3. If this computer to connected to the network via Ethernet, instead of wireless, does the same behavior occur? 4. If the computer is distanced between 6 and 8 feet from the router, does the same behavior occur? 5. Have you installed any new software or drivers on this computer, before the issue appeared? I hope this helps, please let me know how everything goes and any issues that you run into. Good luck and have a great day!

Hi..I have a HP Pavilion Dv 9000 series notebook with Windows Vista (Home Premium) installed.

My laptop is working fine except for no apparent reason, the sound has stopped working - internal as well as external speakers. It shows activities when I try to play any music or go to Control Panel->Sound and click on Test; however, there is no sound.

In Control->sound -> speakers (deafult) shows conexant high definition audio working. SPDIF Interface is not selected.

Can someone kindly help me on this and explain what is wrong and what I need to do to restore sound?

A:HP Pavilion dv6000 Sound Problem

Go into SOUND option in control panel and check the playback devices. Even if you uninstall the driver, it will somtiems remain disbaled in that menu. If you don't even see a playback device in there, r-click on the background and tell it to "show hidden device". If the speakers are enabled, and the levels are turned up in that menu also, and it still doesn't work, then you probably have dead speakers.

Hello there.

Ok. Yesterday I installed (again) Windows 8 ad after month since release, I have problems with sound :/
It crackles, skipps, freezes etc
As for me it's.. like a horror movie. Because I'm using my new laptop to gaming :/ watching movies and listening to the music.

On Windows 7 everything worked like a charm. I reinstalled all drivers, and everything was ok.
On Windows 8 upgrade or even clean install... it doesn't work :/
Maybe someone already solved this problem?

Did you install the correct sound drivers? The HP sound driver is the preferred driver. This is first step in trying to resolve problem.

Windows usually will install the HD Audio Codec driver and that is not the correct driver.

Notebook is making a low sound from the Day-1. It's barely audible in general but very annoying in a slient room. It might be due to fan constanly running or the Hard drive.

This can happen sometimes, first of all open device manager and right click your computer name and click refresh, this may show it, if it didnt you should go ahead with installing the driver and see if that finds it.

Have you rebooted it and checked again ?

Here is the link for the drivers, you will need to find more info from your laptop (normally found on the stick on the back) basicly select the right model from the list of about 10 i think, then find the sound card drivers, download and install.

Hi, Sorry you're having problems. For Windows 7, try this:Log in to Skype. Click Tools near the top of the window, and select Options from the drop-down. Click Audio settings in the left pane. Under Speakers, you can:Use the Volume slider to adjust the volume.Click the down arrow in the drop-down to select the proper speakers.Test the speakers by clicking the little green arrow next to the Speakers drop-down.Click the Make a free test call link to make a test call.It may be a good idea to plug in a headset as a test to see if that works. You don't need a headset with a microphone; just use whatever headset you use to listen to your music on your iPod. The nice thing about using stereo headphones is that you can still speak through your computer's integrated microphone, but only you will hear your correspondent's responses, and there won't be as much feedback. Skype has a handy support document that might help you: I can't hear my friend... (Windows desktop) . And now for the awkward question: Is it possible that your friend has accidentally muted his/her microphone? Or is this happening with all of your calls?

I have a HP Pavilion DV6-7080ee. From day one, the sound volume level is heard to be contunally changing when listening to music. No amount of adjustment seem to improve this awful effect. I see that other users on this board are complaining of exactly the same problem so I've posted this so that hopefullt HP can see that its affecting a range of their devices - if they do read this ? Ive tried all the suggestions so far, e.g. Disabling beats, adjusting the "space", using the "Movie" mode, reinstalling drivers (both via Recovery tools and manually) etc...but as with all the other owners, the improvement is not 100% Please HP can you please try to get to the bottom of this.

I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 Notebook. All of sudden the speakers aren't working but I can get sound from headphones. I hear chirps from the speakers when I touch the Quickplay buttons but that's the only sound I can receive. Nothing is muted. Can anybody help me figure out what's going on? Thanks!!!

A:Solved: No Sound from HP Pavilion dv2000 Notebook but Headphone Jack Work

Could be a sticky headphone jack, try plugging in and removing the headphones a couple of times rapidly.

My HP Pavilion 502n has on-board video. The computer turns on but will not display anything on the monitor- it'll just put the monitor to sleep. I tried 2 monitors and it has the same affect on both. I tried both monitors on another computer and they both work fine on it, which makes me think that the on-board video unit has failed.
how can I disable on-board video using "device manager" when I can' t see the display? I'd like to replace it with a video card- do I just install a sound card anyway and hope that it'll work?



A:Replacing failed on-board video w/ sound card on HP Pavilion 502n

You don't replace a graphics with a sound card. They're two different animals. Sure, you can install a sound card but you'll only get sound out of it. You replace graphics with a graphics card.

Hello, I just bought an HP Pavilion X2 with windows 10, working well, but the sound quality really isn't good, there seem to be no bass even with good headphones on.I've seen some stuff about drivers, but I don't if it would work because it's not the same computer. Thank you if anybody can help!

The sound on my notebook works fine until I connect it via HDMI to an HP Pavilion 24xw monitor.  Then the audio disappears.  If I disconnect it, the audio comes back. I have tried going to the 'Sound' section of the control panel.  There are two options:Speakers Realtek High Definition Audio HP 24xwThe default is Speakers Realtek.  When I use the test facility my notebook plays the test sound.  I have updated to the latest version of the driver. Can someone help with why when plugging in the monitor the audio disappears from my notebook? Thank you so much!
