To fix the problem, you can try to update the sound driver. What kevinR238 said is true. This is the nature of the beast with computers. The only sound input available is the analog green wire that is similar to a headphone jack. LineIn allows you to play audio from other devices like microphones live through your speakers.
. You may drop the needle on your records and begin listening. Re installed the hd audio driver. I have used my headset,by plugging it into the mic port, to use it as a microphone by speaking through the speakers. Power up and see if that affects anything. I already checked system preferences and the computer thinks the microphone is a headphone and thats why it doesn't give out any sound. If your keyboard has a volume mute button, make sure it's not activated.
Well, the computer acts like the sound is working, but I hear nothing. When complete, shutdown the notebook. Or maybe nothing like that has ever happened to you, and you just clicked on this Instructable because it sounded cool. Right-click the device and select Update driver. If it does, it sounds like the RealTek driver you have may be corrupt.
If you only have the symptoms with one of the drivers, then the other is at fault. Now it will record whatever is currently playing on your iPod. Instead of using an audio signal to move the speakers in the headset, you speak into the speaker and the vibration sends a signal into the computer. In desperate times, headphones can be used as a basic microphone. The cables connect the same way as 5.
I had problems with this myself as well. Would it work to plug one in of a male audio cable into my computer headphone jack and the other into the back of the mp3 docking station. Just make sure its in the microphone jack if you want to try this! Made sure the realtek driver is default. I am new to Abelton. I have been going through all the settings the past few days and still can't get it to work? Check that the main audio on your Windows 8.
There are two ways you can get the right drivers for your sound card: manually or automatically. A Windows Update may have caused your sound card drivers to fail. Also I have discontinued my cable provider and using an indoor antenna. If that is indeed the problem, uninstall. Audio plays out of my speakers whether my head phone is plugged in or not so I know its not the head phone age.
I've got a Thinkpad T430s Windows 7 here and it's acting strangely. You may not have to try them all. A low chance its a hardware problem with the RealTek hardware on the motherboard. Anyhow, after i connected all the cables and turned on the computer again i did not have any sound. Any advice would be much appreciated. I could buy more cable and hook the laptop to the tv via cable and use the tv audio.
If I also choose the Realtek, I can't record. Just work your way down at the top of the list until you find the one that works for you. Contact tech support to have it repaired. Hi, This is driving me mad now also as soon as I google it there seems to be hundreds of similar problems. Sometimes it can be to do with a program you have used, something you have accidentally clicked without realising or as happens often with computers for no apparent reason it has done it on it's own. Find this by right-clicking Start and selecting Device Manager. If the sound card does not have the corresponding jacks, a splitter cable must be used to connect all three to the stereo output jack.
Verify that your speakers are turned on and, if they have dedicated volume controls, make sure they're turned up to an audible level. Another test you could try is to switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. Maybe you wanted a way to play it through your computer speakers. It could be an issue with the audio settings, or with the speakers themselves. Up until 2 days ago everything was perfect, but suddenly I am getting no sound from the speakers.
