Hello people. Little help. I am trying to figure out if my speakers work or not. They are Beats audio. Can't hear anything in Windows. However speakers are shown in device menu. In device menu I have High Def audio device and IDT High Def isntalled from my product page on hp.
Now, my question is this. When I turn on the laptop and I keep hitting f8 or f10 to get into bios or something I will hear the beep from hitting the button too much. Is this beep coming from my speakers or I'm guessing there is some kind of built in speaker attached to the MB??
Not sure if it matters or not but I just plugged it into my tv using hdmi and the sound works through my tv? Mean anything?
This laptop has 2 set of speakers. One on top, near the power button and one below near the palmrest.
I was able to test the speakers near the palmrest on another laptop and it worked. The top speakers are a different connection so I couldn't test.
Wouldn't I hear some kind of sound since at least 1 set of speakers is working and they don't use the same connection.
Everytime I turn the volume up I can see the little green bar move up like there is a sound but nothing is coming out.
Between one set of speakers testing out ok, device manager has them listed with no yellow, hdmi playing sound through the tv and troubleshoot says it found nothing wrong with them is there any way this could be software related or maybe registry related? I just don't understand how everything checks out just no sound coming out.
It's bugging the crap out of me. I feel like it's something stupid since the speakers are recognized throughout the entire laptop and programs. The green bar on the speakers moves up and down when playing audio like it's working just no sound is actually coming out.
No, nothing is on mute BTW.
