HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

Q: HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

I have an external monitor with no speakers I use as a dual display along with my laptop monitor. No sound comes out of my laptop speakers nor when I hook up external speakers to it while I have the external monitor hooked up by the HDMI cable. Is there anything I can do to get this to work?

A: HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

Right click on the volume control and then Properties,

When you connect the HDMI it becomes the default output device, even though it has no speakers.

You need to change this back to "Speakers" and set as default.

I have the same issue in windows 10 home 64 bit-
HDMI monitor no speakers-no sound from anywhere when connected?

When I right click on the volume control, the options it shows are:
open volume control
playback devices
recording devices
volume control options

It does not give me a properties option.

Then I went to control panel and searched for sound. Then I saw the screen below. There was a Digital Audio as well and I clicked 'Don't use this device(disable)' on it by mistake and clicked OK.

Now, I only have Speakers option. How do I get the Digital Audio option back in here? I think that will solve my original problem.

I've recently purchased a Samsung T23A750 monitor and to my disappointment when I try to watch a movie the built in speakers are not functioning. I have a Sony Vaio Z216GX connected via HDMI to the monitor (HDMI-DVI) port. I can definitely see the video, but no audio is playing from the speakers. The built in speakers are not at fault- I did a self-diagnosis of the monitor and the speakers seem to work fine. I also set the monitor as the default for the audio and even when Win 7 says its functioning properly, the speakers still don't work. Conversely, setting the default to my PC speakers work fine. I'm sure its not the HDMI cable- I used the same one to hook my pc to my tv with everything working fine. Any ideas??

I have connect my laptop using an HDMI cable to my TV. And from my tv I have connected my two HiFi speakers. When the TV is on an AV channel I have sound coming from the TV and HiFi speakers but when I switch it to the HDMI source channel, sound only comes from the TV and not HiFi speakers.

This is frustrating because I want to watch movies on my TV through my laptop and get the feel of some surround sound through the HiFi speakers but it is not working!!!!

Please Help!


A:No sound to HiFi speakers when HDMI Cable Connected

The problem is not your PC but your TV and how it handles HDMI audio. There is nothing we can do for this, it is strictly an issue with your TV and how it routes audio internally (or to external devices).

So I've got a problem,I changed my case 2 days ago and everything went great,all working as it should be.Up until an hour ago,when the lid got stuck in one of the little clips so after a quick bang it went in.But then I lost my picture on both monitors.
So I went to investigate,I ended up moving the GPU over to the other 16x slot and it is now fine.
but since then I've lost all sound through either the front or rear jacks,It is saying that the speakers are not connected.I've done all the usual checks,as in default devises,drivers.Everything I can think of I have done.I have tried a new cable,and tested through both of my phones and the speakers work fine.I've also tried a few sets of headphones in both jacks.There is a faint hiss sound when I turn the speakers on,that has just started.
I have managed to get sound through my tv via HDMI,but every time,I go into audio manager and lets say change from soft to hard,I loose the sound again,and have to set the HDMI as default again.this too has just started.
I'm using the on board realtek audio sound card ,on an Asus p8z77-lx motherboard.
Just a quick note when I plug in the jack,there is no beep and the pop up screen does not appear as normal.
To me it is pointing towards a motherboard problem,with the 2 problems happening together.Any help would be great.

Hiyya Paul mate sounds like (no pun intended) that thump dislodged something on the board just carefully move the I/O output block and see if there is any movement, could be something a simple as dry joint but which is going to be hard to find and fix.

Personally I have the P8Z77-V and I just stuck an Asus Xonar DG card in the thing and there is no comparison really and you get one heck of a control centre. Not expensive I don't know about where you are but out here $35 so both my Ivy and Sandy Bridges have them.

Yesterday I installed a new external hard drive - following the installation - my sound no longer played through my television (video is fine, HDMI connection) and sound now comes ONLY through the laptop speakers.

The option for HDMI Audio doesn't appear in the 'sound' menus. I have 'checked' "shoe disabled" and "show disconnected" in those menus.
Basic Specs:


Windows 7/64bit

IDT High Definition Audio Codec

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250
AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon 4250

I have tried the following fixes gleaned from other forum posts on similar forum posts:

Uninstalling and reinstalling IDT drivers - didn't work.

HP driver 'recovery manager' to install 'original' IDT audio codecs - didn't work.

Unistalled ATI Video Drivers , and reinstalled them - didn't work

System Restore to a week ago - didn't work.

I use my HD TV as my primary monitor for gaming, so having sound through laptop speakers and not TV is quite annoying.

Perhaps my only solution is another sound card?

A:no sound through tv via hdmi, sound plays through laptop speakers (idt

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.

Audio is a very difficult thing to diagnose and fix.

I purchased a new monitor and it looks great but I can't get the built-in speakers to function. The monitor has inputs for VGA, DVI, and HDMI and I currently have it connected to my video card via HDMI. The front panel audio jack is functioning and I am able to hear audio if I plug headphones in but unfortunately I don't have any external speakers. From the sound menu I have three playback options: Speakers, Realtek Digital Output, and my monitor. I would like to sort this problem out quickly so I can play some games without using earbuds.

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.


A:No audio to HDMI monitor speakers

It depends on what is available on the specific PC. Normally, both Video and Audio are on the HDMI port, and when a cable is connected to the HDMI port Windows automatically changes the default audio playback device from the "Speakers" (The PC's sound card) to the HDMI as the default audio playback device.

Since this is not happening, either the incorrect video driver (which includes HDMI audio) is not installed or the PC does not have the capability.

About all I can offer without the specific Sony PC Model Number so we can research what it has.

If the title of your post is accurate.....then that will never work. You have to connect the TV to the PC with an HDMI cable and then do the same thing for the monitor. You need 2 cables. No other way around it.

Hi guys!

I've been struggling with this problem since I got my computer, a little over a year ago.

I've tried everything, but can't figure out how to get sounds from my pc speakers and HDMI at the same time. It's really annoying having to change the primary output multiple times a day (I watch a lot of movies using HDMI-cable to my tv). Might sound like a little problem to you, but I'm becoming obsessed with this

My soundcard is some kind of a Realtek HD -thingy, if that helps.

Any advice would be appreciated

A:Sound from HDMI and pc speakers at the same time

That is the way it works. You can only have one "default playback device" - either your Speakers (PC sound) or the HDMI.

I've seen other posts about this, but don't recall seeing any way around this.

Hello, I built my new computer about a week ago and was running it off a single 19" Tevion TV while I waited for the HDMI cables to arrive so I could setup my second monitor.

They arrived yesterday and when I plugged in my 32" JVC LT-32DA30J there was overscanning and the bluriness. I fixed the overscanning in the TV's menu and now the size is correct but even at native resolution, the JVC monitor is still quite blurry and is a strain to look at and concentrate on.

Plugging the HDMI cable into my Tevion monitor made that go blurry as well so it could be the HDMI cable or the motherboard ports (when I first got the PC, the VGA port had the same problem but once updated it looked normal)

Does anyone know of a fix to this ? Or can at least suggest what part is going wrong so I can try and fix it ?

What I have tried:
Changing the resolution - all the different resolutions all show the same blurriness
Changing the refresh rate - problem persists through all refresh rates
Changing monitor settings - As above, changing these settings didn't help with anything

Any help is very appreciated , I've been trying to fix this problem for most of yesterday

Hello, I am weighing up my options between purchasing an Ideapad 500s or a Thinkpad L460. I do a bit of video editing, and when I'm doing that kind of work I want to hook the laptop up to a 4k screen, (the extra pixels allow a much more efficient workflow). To connect to a 4k monitor at 60Hz I have read that I need a DisplayPort output (which I note that the 500s does not have), or an HDMI 2.0. I suspect that the Ideapad 500s does not have an HDMI 2.0 output, but I would be happy to be contradicted. Could someone please confirm this one way or ther other? Preferably if you could point me to some official documentation about the product which answers the question that would be great! If it does have an HDMI 2.0, I wonder if anyone has any idea how the nVidia chip would handle the 4k screen. I wouldn't be gaming or even doing and 3d modelling or rendering - just some HD video editing - so I expect it would be fine? Many thanks,Tom

I'm having some trouble with my laptop's sound. Every few minutes, it sounds like the audio skips and buzzes for less than a second. It sounds like interference or something. I was certain it was a fault with the speakers, but the problem exists when listening on headphones and even on the TV connected through HDMI. Also, it happens in Windows Media Player, Adobe Flash, or anything that has audio. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

Realtek shouldn't even be involved with the HDMI sound. I suggest to update your laptop's drivers and use "Intel Display Audio" as your HDMI driver. Set the volume to max then you're good to go.

Hi everyone, I just got a new sound bar (Yamaha YAS-105) which only supports Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3, I think) and I want it to smoothly transcode all of my DTS or newer audio to a multi stream AC3 in both MPC player from the latest K-lite mega pack, VLC and Winamp, or rather, if possible, just in general. If I play something thats DD5.1 in K-Lite's MPC it neatly picks up the audio and displays it as DD on my sound bar, same thing goes for DD5.1 in VLC etc. but as soon as I play something in DTS or higher there is no audio. I've been googling and tweaking the settings already and after messing around a bit it does play sound through MPC but none of my Dolby lights light up on my device and it doesn't sound like 5.1 either, the weird thing is that no lights go on, not even the PCM light just the TV light is connected and it gives a sort of stereo with subwoover sound (so 2.1). If anyone can help me out I'd be very grateful, I know it's possible because it works with media boxes as well, I just can't get it to work on windows... Any extra info, I have an Alienware X51 RC1, Soundbar is a Yamaha YAS-105, like I said it's hooked up via HDMI to my TV and my TV through a Digital optical cable to my soundbar.

The problem is usually with the video as it controls the HDMI audio. If its not detecting or properly detecting the HDMI cable connection then you can have the problem you have.

Reinstall the Video drivers (or install the latest driver for the video) and see if that helps.

I've just received my Laptop back from repair and all seems to be well, I had my screen panel replaced, gpu replaced(from 570m to 670m), new hard drive and CPU fan. However the problem I seem to be having is that internal speakers are completely not working.

I can see that bolume bar in for my internal speakers is actually changing but there is no sound. My system is not muted (unless there's some secret button I'm missing out on) No matter what i try it seems that sound will not work through my internal speakers, I've plugged in my Razer headset(Kraken) that works with my other computer but is not even detected when plugged in the Audio jacks of my laptop(Doesnt even pick up the microphone) and this did work before I sent it out for repair. Sound only works through HDMI output into a TV/Monitor.

Now I'm not sure if this some software configuration that I have to do or something physical with the hardware but I would prefer to not have to send it back as it would take a month to get back to me and also the repair company states that if the problem is due to software then they will charge.

I assume it's a conflict that Realtek HD audio manager is having or something but none of my devices show up on the RealtekHD Audio Manager nor do I get a pop up when a device is detected(which is what normally would of happened)

What is a Sapphire HD 3879? I can't find that model. I see a Sapphire HD 3870, is that what you mean?

Regardless, you aren't getting audio because DVI doesn't carry audio, so converting from DVI to HDMI won't give you audio.

As the title says, I've tried connecting my TV to my computer with an HDMI cable, and the video part works, but no sound plays. When I checked the list of playback devices, the TV appeared (as shown below), but it apparently cannot play sound.

I don't think I know anything beyond what I've posted, but if anyone could help me out with this, I would appreciate it.

Also, as a side note - I am completely unable to interact with any of these objects - I cannot set something as a default device; there is no response when I do it, and disabling the audio device only works until current sources of sound (like videos) are restarted.

Very helpful forum so thanks in advance for addressing this -

I have an Asus laptop running Intel Display Audio and I have it connected to an external monitor via HDMI. I also have external logitech speakers, which for whatever reason, sound a lot better when plugged in to the monitor than the headphone jack of the laptop (which has a much muddier sound). I want to be able to play music when the monitor is off/sleep, however when I do that, obviously the sound turns off. The settings on the monitor were pretty basic and didn't see anything to change it. Is there any workaround?

If so it doesn't have any speakers in it. What it has is a headphone jack on the back, which would require self powered speakers of headphones to get sound from it.

P.S. You also don't have the driver for the built in audio, as it is showing as "high definition audio device". It would show the proper name of whatever the built in audio is (Realtek, IDT, etc) with the proper driver installed.

A:Loss of monitor sound via HDMI

You should have HDMI listed as a Sound Playback device. Whatever happend apparently removed or disabled that.

To start, go the the Souind Playback panel and RIGHT click in an empty spot in the panel and then LEFT click to show disabled and disconnected devices. If it now shows up you can set it as default and you should get sound back.

However, if its missing, reinstall your video display drivers and that should get it back.

I've enjoyed a lot of the useful information from you all on this forum. My problem is that when I connect my Acer Aspire 5810T Laptop to my Asus Monitor MT276 via HDMI, I get video on my Asus but no sound through its speakers. I'm getting sound through my laptop though.

I'm unable to see the HDMI sound icon when I use "Manage Audio Devices" even though I checked to show disabled and disconnected devices. I think it may be because of my graphics or sound card (which I've tried updating via device manager but still no luck).

My system specs are to the right and if you require any other information let me know. Any suggestions on how I can get sound through the monitor's speakers?


I now get sound and video via HDMI through my Asus monitor. The way I got it to work was by updated my chipset driver to an older version.

Steps I took:
1) Go to Device Manager
2) Open Display Adapters and right click and select Update Driver Software
3) Select Browse my computer for driver software
4) Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
5) I then was given a list of drivers and selected the oldest version (2/26/09)

I restarted my computer and plugged in the HDMI and the HDMI icon magically showed up when I went into Playback Devices.

I have updated the OP to show my solution. Thank you all for your help. You guys have a very good community here.

A:No sound via HDMI to ASUS Monitor

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel. If you have HDMI Audio, there will be an icon for this. Set this as the default playback device and that should get you HDMI Audio.

I have a hp pavilion mx70 monitor with side speakers and usually they work perfectly fine with my usual harddrive but I have swapped it over to an NEC Powermate VT harddrive (hp harddrive had the motherboard die on me and i haven't gotten a new one yet)

Anyway, the sound coming through the hp monitor is really soft even though all volumes are turned to max. Is this a problem with the driver for the monitor or is it something to do with the harddrive? I'm really not sure where to even look to find how to fix this problem.

when you say all volumes do you mean the ones in the volume controls in your computer or on the speakers themselves? what jack do have the speakers connected to on your sound card? in volume controls, if you checked there, did you turn up all the levers, including wave, line in , etc?

HP dv9330ca laptop running Vista 64-bit. NVidea GE Force 7600 video and Conexant audio. 2GB RAM.

I hooked-up the HDMI cable from the lappy to the TV (Toshiba 32DT2U or 32C110U, not sure) and had no sound through the TV, so I...
Set the sound on the lappy to digital ouput (SPDIF) in Control Panel - still no sound.
Updated video drivers (after google and HP website suggestion)- we have sound (isn't this odd??).
Updated audio drivers - sound is gone (what the...??).
Rollback audio driver - still no sound -.-
Re-install video drivers - we have sound.
Reboot - we still have sound!!
Power down Toshiba display and power back on (left the lappy on and streaming audio and video) - no more sound
Re-install video drivers - still no sound

I have rebooted after all the mentioned steps above. I am making sure that the sound is set to digital in Control Panel but it isn't helping anymore, nor is the re-install of the video drivers. I am thinking that the rollback of the audio driver suggests that I should not try re-installing the newer one, as it seemed previously to cause a conflict.

As always, your suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hey all,

So I recently just picked up a new 27" Samsung Monitor, here is the link:

For some reason I can't get the sound to work. It's hooked up via an HDMI cable to my Nvidia Geforce 750 TI GPU. This is the same HDMI cable that was used with my old monitor and there was no issues at all.

Though for some reason it's just not working for this monitor? I've made sure all drivers were installed, the monitor was set as default in sound control panels, tried all of the available options there in terms of default (HD audio device, digital audio, my monitor, etc) but I can't seem to get it to work..

Any ideas??

I have a Dell 3847 desktop running Win 8.1 My monitor is an HP W2072a with two internal speakers. I originally hooked pc to monitor with a vga cable and plugged the sound cable into the audio out on the pc. I went through the system check and it recognized the speakers and when I checked for latest drivers it said they were already at the latest. I made surfe speakers on the pc and the monitor were set high. Could not get any sound through the system sound effects tests.

I then hooked the pc up to my desktop external speakers and all was well! So the sound card works! I did not use the audio cable that came with the monitor. Could it be bad? I doubt it.
Checked with HP support and a not very knowledgeable guy said to get sound I needed to go DVI instead of vga. My pc has only vga and hdmi so I took a cable that went hdmi on the pc to dvi on the monitor and no sound again.

When you plug in your headphones make sure they are not muted. In the bottom right of the screen click on your speakers icon. Worth a shot especially if they work in Ubuntu.

Every other device is working, etc 1 monitor have built in speaker, regular speakers and headset. They all working fine but whenever i try to playback for the TV it doesn't work.

I've tried to change the HDMI to a other port on the tv but doesn't work... I've checked that i haven't muted the TV.
Still nothing, i guess this has to have something to do with the update i made yesterday?
Though i'm pretty sure the sound worked after the update as i've watched tv with sound on it after the update... however now it's just gone. Could it be because it went to sleep then i went back to the pc and (it was in hibernation mode) then toggled back but no sound on the tv...

How do I disable my LG Monitor from automatically shutting off and starting the sound channel
when the sound channel is silent or muted.

I have an HDMI LG monitor with an AMD Video card.
I run my sound output from the AMD video card HDMI cable into the LG Hdmi monitor.

The audio works perfectly in all situations, except for the fact that, when there is no sound signal present
(" Muted or silent " ) the device temporarily disables until the next time sound plays, then it re-enables correctly.

the problem is it takes about .5 to 1. seconds to re-enable. which is annoying as FFFF sometimes. when Im playing 1 second long sound clips. the clip is over before the signal re enables. then turns off again as soon as the sound is over.


It could be an AMD issue (considering that the sound runs via the hdmi cable out of the AMD card.)
or it could be an LG issue. Both decent companies. I bet its an LG Flaw (that will not exist on newer models.

A:Hdmi Monitor sound / auto shut off - on (ANNOYING)

This sounds like an issue with the AMD video card's sound or even deeper a PC issue. What are the 1 second sound clips? Does this happen with ALL sound or only certain sounds or from certain media players or games?

What do you have listed in the Device Manager for the Sound? Do you show the AMD HDMI and whatever PC sound card you have? and nothing else or do you also show other items.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.
Please let me know if this helps.

Basically i've just got my new laptop this week, had desktop pc's for nearly 10 yrs with internal sound card to power a 5.1 surround system

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.

Actually, I would try the built in sound module (card) first before buying any add on sound unit. You will be surprised at the improvement in internal sound modules are compared to what they used to be.

I just bought a Dell 22" HD monitor (Model - S2216H) and there are 2 integrated speakers installed at the bottom of the monitor which are not working. I have already run the set up CD and tried other things too. I have installed Windows 10 on my PC. Any suggestions so that I can get these integrated (2X3 Watts) speakers working?

A:No sound from the integrated speakers of my Dell HD monitor S2216H

You have to connect the monitor to your sound card or connect using HDMI cable. Speakers do not work without an audio signal from the computer. Your monitor has Audio In (and Audio Off so check that in the instructions) and HDMI that can handle picture and sound. DVI and VGA do not have sound and require separate audio cable.
It is important to mention your model computer and how the monitor is connected to the video card.

on 2/17/16 [Personal information removed] and again on 2/26/16 had live chats with HP to correct the issue with no longer getting sound thru my HP 750-114 to my Dell Monitor S2415H.   Sound thru the monitor works perfectly until I use some of my programs or an upload appears.  Both times the HP tech had to uninstall sound driver and reinstall the driver.  Each time I spent at least 1.5 hours on live chat while they corrected the issue.  The last correction lasted less than 24 hours and the red X at the speaker on the task bar appeared which told me to connect external speakers.  The sound works with external speakers connected but I am not happy with that solution as originally it worked fine for at least two months using my monitor. The last technician even had my dell monitor set as the default sound monitor. Even with the external speakers plugged in if I insert a CD I do not get any sound!!!!!. I am extremely frustrated with HP and Windows 10 regarding this on going issue.  My last HP has less problems over the 6 years I had it compared to this new computer.  Unfortunately I know just enough to get myself in trouble with the computer so unless I get step by step instructions I am reluctant to uninstall the driver and re install the sound driver myself. FRUSTRATED BEYOND BELIEF!! Regards, Bobby-left

Welcome to the Seven Forums

One thing you could try is to open up the Control panel then click on Sound and then go to the Playback tab and see if there is anything in there to enable it that's what I had to do on my laptop.

While playing some games like Left 4 Dead 2, Fallout New Vegas and Age of Empires III Asian Dynasties, the computer crashes and I have to press and hold the power button for it to turn off. It happens frequently in AoE III Asian Dynasties and never happens in Team Fortress 2 for example.

The screen goes black and the monitor light starts blinking, and the speakers make a really annoying loud buzzing sound.

I've tried everything, various video card drivers, disconnected all USB devices, clean OS installs with no extra software on the background...

The PC is ~3 years old.
Windows 7 SP1 64 bits
I've had BSODs before but not since the last format.

I found this thread using Google, looks similar.

A:Monitor goes black and speakers make loud buzzing sound

Your symptoms reek of hardware failure. My initial suspicion is your video card. Though let's run through some testing.

First thing's first: some initial troubleshooting. Check inside your PC for any dust or slow/stopped fans. Ensure that proper airflow is taking place (cold outside air in, hot inside air out). While you're inside, go ahead and re-seat your video card, as well as your memory sticks, and reconnect your drives' power and data cables (both drive and motherboard ends). Check things after all of this, and see if the issue has been resolved or has been very noticeably reduced. If not resolved, continue onward.

Before the testing, we'll want a couple HWinfo logs from ya. Set it to Sensors only at startup, then have it log two instances: one for idle, and one for high load (gaming, etc.). Make sure each log records a decent amount of time (~15 minutes). So we can get some good solid averages and discover trends going on.

Once that's done, on to the hardware diagnostic tests:

GPU: MemtestG80/CL - If your video card supports either of the tests, run twice.
RAM: Memtest86+ - Run 7+ passes.
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test, Large FFTs, 9+ hours.
Disk: Seatools - All basic tests. No Fix all or advanced ones.

Note that these tests (besides MemtestG80/CL) are available on the UBCD. It's also preferable you run them on there as it offers a light, reliable environment to run them on. Note that Prime95 is called Mersenne Prime Test in the UB... Read more

ok so i got a new compaq pc and my old polkaudio speakers wont work! does anyone no what the problem is? i no that they are connected properly, and the volume is cranked to the fullest and all sounds still play quietly. the speakers worked properly on my old pc though.

A:speakers not working properly, sound is very low, connected properly, please help!

I think...

1.You may have accidently adjusted you sound configuration settings.
2.You may not have the correct sound Drive (Or none at all). If so check your sound card and browse the web for installable driver (The acctual drivers don't cost anything)

A:Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

the HDMI sound is most likely off your GPU but that series seems to not have a HDMI port so that is odd. If you can make sure your onboard audio is on in your BIOS and also run the tool on this page so that you can update all your system info for us. System Info - See Your System Specs

Hi everyone.
I have an Alienware 15 R2 (i7 4720HQ, 970M, 16GB, FHD) running windows 10.
I have set it up in desktop mode by connecting it to ASUS MG28UQ 4K monitor, mouse and keyboard. The monitor is connected through the laptop's mini dp port.
The problem is that when I boot up the laptop with the monitor connected, the laptop's internal sound card (SoundBlaster Redcon 3di) does not function, and is not available in the audio playback devices menu. The intel display audio works, though.
But when i shut down the laptop, disconnect the monitor, and then boot it back up, the sound card is detected and functional, and stays funtional even after i connect the monitor to laptop after it has booted. It keeps working until i reboot, after rebooting the same thing happens.
Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Things i tried:
reinstalled sound card driver
windows troubleshoot

Thanks in advance  

A:Sound Card not detected when laptop boots up with external monitor (mini dp) connected - Alienware 15 R2 (4720HQ)

First, make sure that the display audio device is not 'disabled' in Device Manager. When connected through HDMI this should be enabled. If it is disabled, try enabling it and see if that resolves the problem.

Second, I would suggest downloading the latest graphics drivers from Intel. This should also update the HDMI audio drivers, and may fix the problem. You may also need 4th Generation or later CPU graphics drivers. You may want to download Intel's driver updater, to automatically search for drivers.

Hi guys, just reinstalled windows 7. everything works great, then I went to paly a file and to my surprise, no sound. Tested speakers on another device, they work. Sound card drivers are working and up to date.

When I play a media file, I can see the sound gage go. So I went in sounds, playback device, and all I see in there is my sound card, no speakers or headphones icon. Thus no sounds from speakers. Tried other headphones/speakers they also dont work on the PC.

First two screenshots are my Device Manager, third one shows my playback devices.. My wife needs this for her business and I am losing sleep over this for days now I tried everything. Any ideas?

Hi -

What sound card do you have?

Double-click on the HD audio device in Device Manager - what is driver and date?

Usually there is an audio codec/ drivers, e.g., IDT, Realtek, etc... that must be installed.

What are system specs - exact model number from label on back of PC, please.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Have you made sure your graphics card driver is up to date?

Have you tried starting your PC up in safe mode and seeing if the problem still persists?

Please ensure you have done both of these and then post back; it would also be helpful if we knew your system specifications which you can fill in under 'User CP'.

Also does the task bar appear on the primary monitor or secondary monitor?

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.

Hey, DejaVu420 here.

I just bought a brand new 32 Inch flat screen HD TV to use as my PC monitor, and it just happen to come with a pair of very nice built in speakers. I currently have another pair of homemade speakers (12 inch sub w/ 2 satilites) wired to plug into the back of my PC, using just the good ol lil green hole. Now this works perfectly fine, sh*t bumps, and the HDMI speakers operate perfectly fine as well, when i have either or selected in the windows Vista "Sound" device list.

My question is, is there ANY way at all, that i can get the HDMI speakers to operate in unison with my PC speakers?

I cant wire them together... so im thinking of some type of program that could output to HDMI and analog at the same time? Basicly i need to use the "Speaker" playback device in unison with the "ATI HDMI Output" playback device.

Wish windows would just make this an option...

Thanks for the help!

So eagerly i tought to buy this cool looking laptop for a huge $2000 i needed it to output to a hdmi monitor ot TV so sometimes i could see movies as well, now i had to buy the special DA200 dell adaptor and in the past 3 weeks it`s been a complete nightmare, i WAS NEVER ABLE to make it work permanently. The chat support was no help at all usually simply resuming to try and replace the part but i do think the part is good and i didn't feel like waiting 2 weeks for it to ship from china.

The ethernet and usb work on the DA200 adaptor , EXCEPT HDMI.  SOMETIMES it would work briefly until next restart, i had tried everything ever available on the internet. The laptop is running Windows 10 (as it`s restricted to that version, i tried to install other versions with lots of issues and compatibility issues) so  i have installed reinstalled and installed different versions of the video driver for all possible windowses and none worked. what did work was very brief until next restart and that usually happened when i had a fresh windows install, after the first restart i will get a non working hdmi again.  

I have tried several hdmi cables so i know it`s not the hdmi cable or the tv ot the monitor. and nobody seems to be able to help!!
