Audio :: Speakers Not Detected Properly?

Mar 30, 2013

I am using windows 8 pro x64 with an asus P8P67 LE motherboard and have a 5.1 sound system. I installed win 8 fresh and the audio was working fine. One time when I booted up, the audio sounded off. The sound was only coming out of the front left speaker. I did the speaker test within win 8 and the realtek menu. The front right speaker is being detected as the subwoofer and the rest are fine. It's the only speaker not working properly so it's like having two subs. I tried setting it to stereo, 2.1, speaker fill, ect... with the same results. I have not messed with wiring or software. Sometimes it would go back to normal but then do it again randomly. In the end, I reinstalled win 8 and it worked fine. Then suddenly, it happened again. The only difference this time is that it will not go back to normal by itself. It seems to be stuck on this "setting". I did do some research but I guess I didn't do it well enough because I could not find an answer that would work. Again, it worked fine in win 7 and sometimes in Windows 8. I have checked the wires to make sure nothing has changed and that they are connected well and they are fine. I tried changing the speaker settings and speaker fill but with no results. I don't know what else to try.

Audio :: New USB Desktop Speakers - Can't Properly Control Volume

Sep 15, 2014

I recently purchased the Polk Hampden Speakers. For some reason, the manual volume control built into the speakers themselves doesn't affect the volume level. The only way I can adjust the volume is by using my computers volume control software (the little white speaker in the bottom left of Windows 7/8). I am fairly certain the hardware volume control isn't broken, because when I first plugged them in ( a week or 2 ago) they worked fine. It wasn't until I disconnected/reconnected everything from my computer when I installed a new desk that this problem started.

However, even the software volume control isn't working properly either. In particular, when I go into the mixer to see the volume levels for each application, if I adjust the main "Device - speaker volume" it won't alter the specific applications volumes accordingly. Like, I can reduce the main - device speaker volume all the way to zero (not muted) and the applications will still have the same volume level as they did before I adjusted it.

Finally, even my keyboard bindings to the volume control are whacky. I can still adjust the "main - device speaker" volume with the keyboard, however since this "main - device speaker" volume no longer influences the individual application speaker volume level it is pointless to do so.

I have tried disabling all other sound drivers/sound hardware, but it doesn't work.

I have tried uninstalling/re-installing the USB drivers for the Hampdens which didn't work.

I have tried restarting the Microsoft Services responsible for audio output recognition which didn't work.

I have tried downloading the audio drivers specific for my motherboard, but that didn't work.

Additionally, applications sometimes don't recognize the speakers. If I start the application before turning on the speakers the application won't recognize the speakers unless I cycle through the speaker output modes (the little button under the volume knob) and get back to USB mode. Otherwise, I have to completely restart the application. This issue isn't as big of a problem as the manual volume control not affecting the volume output of the speakers.

I have tried uninstalling all my audio devices/drivers, but this doesn't seem to work. They just instantly re-install it appears.

Dell :: Incorporated Speakers In Monitor Not Detected

Apr 13, 2014

I have a Toshiba Tekbright Monitor that was working very well in my old computer. I bought a Dell XPS 920 I7 12G RAM 2T with a Windows 8.1, the incorporated speakers are not detected, even after I updated the Nvidia drivers. 

If I plug headers, I have sound.

If I restart and press F1, the audio test there gives me sound too.

So the monitor is fine, just some conflict between speakers and Windows/Nvidia.

Audio :: No Audio To HDMI Monitor Speakers

Jan 2, 2014

My friend connected an external monitor to his Sony laptop using an HDMI cable. The problem is that there is no audio from the external monitor speakers. The sound still comes out of the laptop speakers. When I look in Playback Devices, I see what appears to be the speakers as a device (can't remember exactly what is was called, but it was a somewhat vague name like "audio device"), and I've tried various settings, yet I can't get sound from the speakers.

So my question is, does an HDMI connection on a monitor support audio, or does he need to get a audio cable and use the green audio jack that is on the monitor, which I thought was just needed with the VGA connector.

Audio :: No Sound From Speakers?

Jun 12, 2014

Latest version of Windows 8 This will take a while A few months ago Windows 8 quit producing sound through my speakers - overnight. I've tried a number of things I'll list here. Volume Control - red 'x' in bottom right corner. AMD HDMI OUTPUT and HEADPHONES are checked. Troubleshooting Speakers/headphones produces "doesn't appear to be plugged in' - they are. See next sentence. Potential issues that were checked. Check audio device issue not present one or more audio services isn't running issue not present audio device is disabled issue not present I can plug the speakers into a Vista PC and hear music so I know(?) the speakers and cable are plugged in and OK. Device Manager>Sound,Video and Game Controls>AMD High Definition Audio Device = device is working properly. Using most recent driver - Rollback is disabled. I have two sets of audio inputs on the back of my PC. Tried them both (have always used the top ones). Someone suggested checking my sound card - don't know how to do that. One last thing . . . I found an MS article telling me to disable/enable the AMD. Did that but as soon as I disabled it, it disappeared.

Audio :: No Sounds From Speakers After Upgrade To Windows 8

Dec 10, 2013

No Audio or Sounds from Speakers or Headphone Jack after upgrade to Windows 8

Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX

Intel Celeron 900 @ 2.20Ghz 2.12GHz x64 bit

Windows 8.1 Pro

Audio Driver/Sound Processor:
Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio Windows 7 64-bit
Realtek High Definition Audio Driver / Windows 8 64-bit

The Laptop originally ran on Windows 7 and I updated the OS to windows 8 and upon doing this the audio stopped completely from all audio sources (i.e. windows sounds,speakers,line- in/heaphone jack).

I tried Disable/Reenable driver,Rollback driver,uninstall/reinstall and discovered that the driver is not supported for windows 8. Upon learning this I have tried other Audio Drivers (i.e. Realtek HD Drivers etc) and no avail.

I've recently updated to Windows 8.1 and it auto reinstalled the original audio driver and still, no sound. I have also checked all Audio Codecs and still no luck even going that route.

When I play an mp3 on let's say wmplayer the volume bar will move up and down with the levels of the song that's playing as per usual but I get no sound. Volume level can be at 100% and there won't be any noise at all, no distortion, white noise, just silence.

This happens no matter how sound is being produced music, videos, games, internet, windows sounds etc... And trying to get audio from headphone jack doesn't work either.

Any solutions to the out of date driver issue I am having? Seems that the driver not being compatible with win 8.1 is where the errors began. Is there a fix for this or am I best off getting a usb audio driver and running my sound that route?

Audio :: Windows 8 - ALL Sound Not Come Out Of Both Speakers At Same Time

Jun 10, 2013

I have an alienware m14x laptop, which I purchased around 2 years ago. One part of the problem is what speakers I actually have built into the laptop and cannot look for the proper drivers to potentially fix this issue. The other part of the problem lies with windows 8 itself.

Whenever sound comes out of my speakers, (there only being a total of 2 speakers) it only comes out of one of the two speakers at a time. THIS IS CAUSING THE SOUND QUALITY TO BE COMPLETELY TERRIBLE. How to make ALL audio come out of both speakers at the same time.

Audio :: Speakers Muted When Microphone Plugged In

Jun 10, 2013

I have a windows eight computer, and when I plug in my microphone (on my headset) my speakers are muted. I assume there is a simple sound option somewhere that does this, but I have been unable to find anything by looking around or searching google. The headset does not mute speakers on other computers when the microphones are plugged in, nor does it differ with other headsets.

Audio :: No Speakers Or Headphones Plugged In - Windows 8

Aug 1, 2014

I am using Windows 8.I am facing an issue with my sound all on a sudden. The volume icon on the task bar has a red cross on it. When I hover on that it says 'No speakers or headphones plugged in' (attachment-1).

When I click on the icon I get a screen like attachment-2 which says 'The peripheral does not appear to be plugged in'.

I checked in the Device Manager to see only 'Bluetooth Headset' listed under 'Sound,video and game controllers'. Also I tried to re-install audio drivers (Real Tech High Definition Audio Driver) which is provided with the laptop to no avail. I don't know whether this is just a driver/windows problem or a hardware problem.

Audio :: Bluetooth Speakers Connect To Asus All In One?

Nov 8, 2013

Asus All in One
Asus ET 2410 IUTS

Can I connect the Grace Digital Matchstick Speaker Dock that I have for my Kindle Fire HD to my Asus desktop?

I am not familiar with Bluetooth and whether I need connections or software to do this.

I might need a different kind of Bluetooth Speaker System than the Kindle Fire HD dock.

I have the Aux cable that connects to MP3 players and cell phones. Do I need a (line-in) cable or something else to make it work. Or is this Matchstick speaker Dock not made for computers?

Audio :: Sound Playing Through Both Laptop Speakers And Headphones?

Sep 15, 2014

I bought the plantronics .Audio 335 studio headphones, but when I plugged them in, it screwed up my sound. My compute'rs sound is now playing through both the headphones AND the laptop speakers. After unplugging it and trying again a couple times, I gave up and decided to just use my old headphones.

Except for the sound still played through both the headphones and laptop speakers.

Distraught, I restarted my computer. When that didn't work, I restored my system to a point I made yesterday. Still no luck. I've been scrounging google for a few hours now, and nothing is working. I REFUSE to refresh my system and reinstall all of my programs again.

Audio :: Volume Control On Speakers Becoming Static / Crackly?

Aug 27, 2013

I have a couple of speakers I use with my Desktop computer.

On a previous set of speakers, the power button soon wore out, so with this current set, I have them on a power strip, and use that button.

I now see that the volume control on my speakers is becoming staticky / crackly.

So, I've started using the on-screen Volume control icon in the bottom right, to adjust the sound.

I have to click and open it every time though.

Is there a way to make the Volume control "on-top" all the time, or can some other program do this?

When I hook up my logitech z 2300 speakers to my iphone or my old dell laptop it sounds good like it should. So this makes me think that their is a Windows 8 setting that is messing up my speakers. What settings in Windows 8 do I need to change my make my speakers sound good?
