Do you have problems, laptop speakers don’t work when there are meetings or just listening to songs, and watching YouTube videos?
You don’t need to panic, we have summarized some of the problems that almost everyone may experience.
1. Check Your Volume
The first method is quite simple, you may accidentally press the combination button on the laptop keyboard, which causes your laptop’s volume to not exist. The fix, just Click the loudspeaker icon in the lower right corner of the Windows taskbar and make sure your volume is muted and turned up. (If you have external speakers plugged in, make sure they are turned on and on as well.)
When you drag the Windows volume slider and release it, you hear a “ding”. If not, the problem lies elsewhere. If you hear a ding, it’s possible that the app you’re trying to use is muted. Make sure the music player, video player, or other apps you are using is turned on and on.
2. Try Some Headphones
If you’re having trouble with your laptop’s built-in speakers, try plugging in a set of headphones or speakers. If the sound works through them, you might have a hardware problem with the laptop’s built-in speakers.
If you have a pair of USB headphones handy (like a USB gaming headset), try plugging those in too, since they can bypass the default audio driver and indicate where the problem might lie.
3. Change Your Audio Device
It’s possible that your speakers are working fine, but the Windows system is redirecting sound to the wrong output device—this is especially common if you’ve plugged in a USB audio device, or connected to an external HDMI monitor that doesn’t have speakers.
To fix this, right-click the speaker icon on the Windows taskbar and select Sounds to enter audio preferences. Select the Playback tab, then find the device you want to use. If you don’t see it, try right-clicking it and tick Show Disabled Devices.
Select the output device you want and click the Set Default button. If you’re not sure which one you want to use, try each device on the list until you hear audio.
4. Install Or Update Driver Audio Sound Card
Maybe just some love, there have been many ways to fix it, but it turns out that the laptop sound requires a driver to adjust the sound of the speakers that come out.
5. Update Your BIOS
In rare cases, a hardware incompatibility, software update, or reinstallation of Windows can cause your sound to stop working, and you may need to change something in the BIOS. Restart your computer and enter the system bios BIOS/UEFI setup menu, usually by pressing Delete, F2, or some other key at startup.
First, make sure your sound card is enabled in the BIOS, as it could be disabled at some point. If that doesn’t help, check the BIOS or UEFI version you’re using, and compare it to the latest version on your laptop manufacturer’s website.
If your laptop manufacturer has released the latest version of the bios, it may be necessary to download and install it.
Be sure to read the instructions and proceed with caution, as BIOS updates can also break things if done incorrectly.
6. Service Center
This last method is the last alternative if the 5 methods above have not been resolved. You try to ask a friend who is an expert in their field, or come to a store or maybe the nearest service center, and ask if there is any damage. If indeed the speaker is damaged, you may get a warranty.
Note: Before going to a store or service center, always prepare a warranty card just in case.
