Vanity-Why no noise from my computer?
Free Republic ^ | January 22, 2017 | self

Posted on 01/22/2017 5:44:50 PM PST by SisterK

I am not computer savvy at all but I know that many freepers are....All of the sudden my laptop's internal speakers quit working. Did a systems restore. Trouble shooter found nothing wrong. Computer thinks the speakers are working but there is no sound. Zip. Nada. Is it time to purchase external speakers?

Maybe a Windows update fixed the problem of your speakers working.

(-:

Seriously, look at your updates and undo anything for the sound. See if that works.

I’m not very tech savvy, but maybe the drivers.

Sometimes you have to reinstall drivers. I’ve had to do that before. Skype sometimes conflicts with other media spps.

I don’t have external speakers or headphones. I hate to go all the way into town to purchase them. But the little bars or graphs that show bass and treble are dancing up and down. That is why I think the computer thinks the speakers are working. I have tried with youtube internet music and a CD.

Yes. That should solve it.

Your laptop is probably OK. As others have said you need to reinstall your audio driver. An application or update is causing a conflict.

Download the audio driver from your PC brands website, and install.

Order them online. They will actually bring them to your door.

Tell me you are kidding.

In control panel, sound make sure your onboard sound card is the default device. Some laptops, paticularly if you are using a docking station, may have more than one sound device listed as an option.
