    No sound coming from built-in speakers or other devices


    I ran diagnostics and heard the eight tones I was supposed to hear when testing the audio. However, it seems no sound is being fed to any of my output devices. I can provide information - but need someone to tell me what to post. Thank you.

    Have you tried going to Sounds > Playback tab?

    Sounds... right click the speaker icon in the System Tray, by the clock.


    Once on the Playback tab... highlight whatever is your output device... speakers, monitor, headphones, etc., and if possible choose: Set Default
    Also click on Properties and make sure it says "Use this device (enable)"

    Volume sliders have a way of interacting with each other when you'd rather they were totally independent and NOT linked in any way.

    You need to confirm that you have no sound when ALL volume sliders are at maximum level.

    No doubt you have multiple volume sliders, depending on where you look...........such as:

    Within Windows control panel.

    Within your playback software.

    Within your browser.

    At certain web sites, such as Youtube.

    and God knows where else. It's up to you to find them by drilling into menus and submenus.

    This is a brand new setup of Windows 64 with only one thing producing sound (Microsoft Edge). It has been working fine up until now. What else can I check? (did what you suggested).

    Insufficient detail.

    Good luck.

    @Ghot

    I hope this post reaches you - the reply part of this forum seems to have changed. Did what you said and the Wizard fixed the driver and most of everything now works. However, I need to send you a screenshot to show you one thing that still needs repair. Thank you.

    Just click on this...and "browse" to your screenshot, then click "upload".
    Has to be .jpg .jpeg or .png
    Only works here in the topic post.

    there are two line items that are identical: "SPEAKERS." The one that is checked as default is from the output of the Headphone jack. I believe it used to say "Headphones." How do I correct this so it reads properly? Thank you.

    I guess you set the "other" speaker as default instead.
    Highlight the other speaker and click on Set Default


    I don't use or even have headphones. You can see from my pic above...mine is totally different.

    I just have a Dell monitor without sound, and speakers and an LG TV with sound.

    The only thing I do on the TV is VLC media player.


    My speakers are set as default for any sound sources on the monitor.
    When I run VLC media player on the LG TV, it looks like this...

    ...and I have to set up VLC Media player like this...

    ...then I get the VLC sound on the TV and I can still get monitor sounds on the speakers, at the same time if I want.

    I clicked on "Properties" of the one with the checkmark and found that I could change the item's name. So, I changed it to "Headphones" and all is right wit the world again. Thanks so much for the help - now I can sleep well tonight.
