Sound Only Works With Headphones Or External Speakers

Jun 26, 2009

My friend's laptop has a weird problem. It was running vista fine, sound worked and everything. One day, the internal speakers randomly stopped emitting any sound. However, they do make sound effect sounds while the computer is booting.I figured it was a software problem, so he just reformatted and installed 7. Same problem. Makes the booting up noises, "Gamers Republic... BOOM", obviously coming from the internal speakers.

Sound From Websites Won't Go To External Speakers, Files On 'puter Do?

Apr 18, 2012

i have a very strange problem: when i play sound files that reside on my laptop, they play through the external speakers that are connected to my docking station. but when i play a Internet video or there is a web page that plays sound, it will only come through the tiny onboard speakers on the laptop. i've gone through every setting i can find on the computer, without finding anything amiss.

Installing Audigy Speakers With Realtek Sound Card?

May 25, 2011

I just bought an xps 8300 with a realtek sound card installed. But the spseaker system I have is Audigy Sound Blaster 2ZS. I'm trying to install my speakers, but I keep getting an error message that says my device is not found, and it's all hooked up properly. Do I need to uninstall the realtek program and then install my audigy speakers, or is that even possible.

GFX Card Advice

Dec 8, 2009

I'm thinking of upgrading my graphics card(s) sometime after Christmas (as one of my GX2's is slowly dying now i'm stuck with 1 98GX2) and am deciding on a few options I would like some opinions on.

a) 2 Nvidia GTX275's (AKA GTX295) $600 for the 2

b) 1 GXT295 $750 (takes me back to the GX2 day's)

c) Or I swing the other way and go for an ATI card, but I cannot take advantage of Crossfire technology as i'm running a Nvidia chipset. so it would have to be a high end card to make it worth it IMO, probably the 5850 $400 as the 5870 is almost $600.

I'm pretty rapped up on a pair of GXT275's, if I do run 2 of them, I will virtually have a GTX295 BUT with OpenGL 3.0 opposed to older OpenGL 2.1 on the GTX295.

Looking To Buy A New External/usb Sound Card

Jul 25, 2009

My onboard soundcard isn't working with Windows 7. I really like the performance Windows 7 is giving me for everything, from games (no sound), to processor-heavy loads, but I just can't get the audio to work. I have tried a lot of sound drivers listed in these forums, but they all say the drivers can't find suitable hardware and exits the install.

Advice On A Card For Under £100 And 32 Or 64 Bit

Dec 16, 2009

I recently upgraded to win 7 on a Nforce 2 board and have had a load of prob's (as posted on here) its seems that my old NF2 board can't run Win 7 so I have now treated my self to a new pc (comming for xmas) spec as here;

WIN 7 32 or 64 bit?

Asus M4A78-VM - DDR2 1200x2 780G chipset

AM3 Phenom X2 250 3.0 GHz,

4Gb Corsair Memory DDR2 1066 (2x2Gb)

500GB SATA Hard Drive

Cool Master 500W PSU

Can anyone please recomend a graphics card (pci-e 2) for under £100 that would suit this set up (either ATI or Nvidia) its main use is for internet with the odd games play but its not really intended as a gamming pc.

Also should I install 32 bit or 64 bit Win 7 ?

Gaming Video Card Advice

Oct 25, 2009

I believe i'll be building a new box here in about a month so I've been spec'ing things out.

I currently use an ATI X800 Pro. Although its lasted this long, ive had weird issue and bugs out of it and I would sort of prefer to go back to Nvidia. But i've heard that the only cards working with Direct X 11 are ATI for right now?

I haven't kept up with hardware for some time so i don't even know who's "winning" right now with the best cards out.

I was looking at this card.

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1155-TR GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It looks alright and I think it will meet my needs. I plan to game with it moderately, but i dont need the absolute best. Just needs to run current games and be enjoyable, without struggling to do so.

Any suggestions that fall in a similar price point as the link posted?

Generic External USB Sound Card Won't Work

Aug 12, 2009

So I installed 7 Pro RTM, and plugged in my external sound card and no dice. I wouldn't normally care as I have a working PCI soundcard, except that its a really really high quality DAC, and it cost me a lot of money, so I'd rather not just forget all about it

On XP it uses just generic usbaudio.sys, it works on macs, linux, etc without any issues. What can I try? I attempted to copy across a windows xp version of usbaudio.sys, but that didn't seem to help (I'm not entirely sure I did this correctly).

Installing Firewire External Sound Card?

Oct 16, 2010

I have a HP built box that I purchased less than a year ago. The hard drive died, along with the motherboard.I purchased a new hard drive and the full version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and had the shop replace the MB, Install the new hard drive and O/S.The motherboard is an ASUS M4A785-M, with an on-board Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (according to Windows Device Manager).I have a couple of additional cards installed, one is an eSata controller for an external hard drive and the other is a SIIG DP FireWire 800 3-Port PCIe card.I initially installed the SIIG because the FireWire chip set is Texas Instruments, because I have a PreSonus Firestudio Mobile (sound card, recording hardware)and it only plays nicely with Texas Instruments. The SIIG card shows up in Device Manager under IEEE 1394 Bus host controllers as "Texas Instruments 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller", which I "assume" is correct?

My problem is the PreSonus hardware refuses show up in Device Manager or initialize (there is an indicator light on the front of the unit that will glow blue when it is connected or flash blue-red when it isn't). PreSonus has a driver set for the Firestudio Mobile, that is called Universal Control.I have attempted to install Universal Control several times, but each attempt has resulted in failure, with the Driver version showing 0.0.0 etc. I realize this is the problem, but I have no idea how to force the issue.If I could get the PreSonus drivers to install, I would be home free (I think).he PreSonus hardware should show up in Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers, but it doesn't.I have also posted about the issue on the PreSonus forum, but haven't had any solutions posted.This computer and the hardware are what I use to run my Recording Studio and without the Firestudio, I am effectively out of business.I should also note, that I haven't even installed any other software beyond windows 7, other than a couple of utilities. Not even my DAW or the drivers for my peripheral midi devices.

External Speakers Work, Laptop Speakers Do Not

Dec 12, 2009

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?

FPS Drop Because Of Sound Card / Sound Card Drivers

Sep 19, 2009

I've recently upgraded my os to windows 7, and noticed a significant

fps drop in all games I've installed. The problem seems to come from the sound card.

I've disabled it in device manager and I gained a steady 15-20 more in most of the applications.

Any idea what to do? Is it a driver issue or something? I got an Athlon 64x2 4600+, Asus M2N mainboard,

2 gigs of ram, Gainward 8800GS video card, Sound Blaster Live 24bit soundcard.

Drivers are downloaded from creative.

No Sound From Speakers

Oct 15, 2011

i have an msi 785gtm-e45 mother board. i have no sound coming from the speakers. tried new speakers and still no sound. if i click on the speaker icon on the bottom right it shows the speaker graph going up and down as sound is being produced. i tried the head phones and nothing coming from them either. i tried playing a cd and nothing from there either. i first noticed it when i was trying to play something from Internet and thought it might just be the site but then i tried off line as well. i am running windows 7 home premium. i have checked all the settings i can think of but probably have missed something somewhere.

Sound From Speakers Rather Than Headphones?

Mar 28, 2010

I have the following problem with new Compaq 515 with Windows 7: when headphones are connected to the headphone jack, the laptop speakers will not disable and headphones or external speakers woun't work.The laptop recognizes headphones (test sounds are coming through) and they can be used for communications, e.g. Skype. The laptop has IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver's latest version. Strangely, it is not possible to switch headphones as default device in control panel -> sound. The laptop has following options: Speakers/HP as default device and Headphones (RTC) appear as "Default Communications Device" when selected as default device. I'm not sure this is the problem but it seems strange enough
