No Sound From Speakers On Computer Or Any Website - Failed To Play Test Tone
Aug 9, 2015
I updated my computer to windows 10. when I upgraded and played audio, video on local computer or on any website. I could not hear music/ sound. when I play audio file through Windows Media Player, I get following error.
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly."
And when I play audio file using Groove Music. Can't play. We can' find an audio device for your PC Make sure headphones aor speakers are connected. For more infor search your PC for "Manage audio device".
0xc00d36fa ( 0xc00d36fa) |Close| (button).
When I go to manage audio device. I play test tone. and get message box saying that "failed to play test tone".
I have a Dell Latitude E6520 running Windows 10 Pro x64. When I try to watch YouTube I get no audio. Spotify plays and gives no errors but doesn't have sound. When I plug in headphone sound plays but as communications headphones.
When I try to play a test sound through Speakers/Headphones I get an error that says "Failed to play test tone." When I try to troubleshoot it can't identify the problem. I have attached the report from troubleshooting.
Whenever I'm trying to change my sound default format my speakers won't work, and whenever I press test (next to the format) it is showing me this error text: Failed to play test tone. Nomatter what i do (restore defaults,change input,even reset the whole pc etc.) the speakers won't work.They only work after occasional start-ups.Though i would really like to have a better sound format and I've been having this problem for a week now(since i re-installed my synapse cause it wouldn't open).By the way I'm using a realtek onboard sound card(but I have the same problem on my usb ports too).
After a successful upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 I discovered that YouTube would not play. Fixed the video problem by running in compatibility mode .. BUT then noticed there was no sound from either speakers or headphones on my laptop. No Windows sounds, iTunes, nothing worked. Could this be a setting inadvertently turned "off' somewhere ? Up until I got YouTube working the sound was fine with Windows 10. I just don't know where to look to rectify this. Rebooting etc doesn't make any difference. I don't suspect a hardware fault, it must be an OS corruption or something.
So after my problems with my Altec Lansing speakers (detailed on another thread) I decided to bite the bullet and just buy new speakers. Except that now there is a problem with that too.
I have a HDMI cable attached to my laptop so that I can use my TV as a second monitor. That's fine and dandy, except that the sound only comes out from my TV, not from my laptop speakers or my new speakers. I've tried to use Windows settings to adjust things but there doesn't seem to be any such option.
On my last computer all I had to do was plug and play, so I'm not sure why this is happening. It's quite a hassle because when the HDMI cable is attached, all my sound comes from the TV.
Since i upgraded to win 10 i could not play music from my phone through laptop speakers via bluetooth. I could send and receive files to and fro via Bluetooth and the phone also gets connected/paired without any issues, but the music playing option is not happening. My previous OS win 7 had no problems in playing the music.I have a dell inspiron 15R laptop and asus zenfone 4 mobile.My phone specs shows it supports A2DP ( and it used to play in win 7).
I just upgraded to Windows 10 a few days ago and ever since, I've been getting a random popping noise in my speakers. I have tried everything I can think of. I've updated my drivers and my Bios. (From HP site) I've uninstalled and reinstalled the audio (Realtek) driver. This problem never happened in Windows 8. I'm about to switch back to Windows 8.
After upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 my audio now plays through my headset and through my computers speakers.
FAQ: -Have you updated your drivers: Yes I have. -Have you set the headset as default device: Yes I have. -What audio do you have: Ok, I not sure which one I have, but I can find VIA HD and on Windows 8.1 (not on Windows 10) I use to have Realtek audio manager which I have now lost. -What headset do you have: Sennheiser G4ME ZERO.
After installing Windows 10,for some reason I have no sound on my monitor speakers.I upgraded from Windows 7 where there were no problems.When I open Device Manager/ Audio inputs and outputs.click on speakers it says "this device is working properly".On trying the Test button it lights up Green but still no sound.
I recently updated my Asus N55SF laptop to Windows 10. Everything is working, but the internal speakers in the laptop are not working. However, headphones and HDMI audio is working. I've tried the newest drivers from Microsoft and from the Realtek website. What I can do here?
I installed Windows 10 last week and have been using it with mainly no problems (apart from my DVD/CD drive not working, which I posted a thread here about but haven't received any responses yet ).When I am visiting my family back home in England I often plug my laptop into the tv to watch films with the kids through the HDMI port. I usually have to change the "default" audio device to the AMD HDMI Output to do this, and then change it back afterwards. I did this once with no problems.
However, the last time I watched something I didn't change it back before shutting down. And now my "Internal Speakers" device has disappeared. I tried uninstalling all drivers relating to sound devices in device manager and doing a scan for changes - the HD Audio device reappeared, but still no "internal speakers" option. I tried checking "show disabled devices" in the "playback devices" window, still no joy. I uninstalled everything again and used the drivers from the ASUS support page for my model laptop (ASUS x53z) and still nothing
I installed the updated sound drivers from AMD in the sticky post here. Again, nothing but the HDMI audio option. This is frustrating as I live abroad and my laptop is my main method of both communicating home and watching media. I can't use my headphones now.I have considered doing a System Restore, but crazily the only System restore point available is from when some automatic updates were installed after the issue appeared. My only option is to do a System Reset, losing all my applications, but i'm not convinced this will solve the issue. I have noticed that there is one device showing that it is unable to start in device manager.
My speakers work fine but when I plug in my headphones, I can't hear any sound from the headphones. The headphones do work as I use them for my desktop.
I have tried updating the sound drivers from the device manager. I have tried removing the drivers and redownloading the audio drivers from Acers website. I have tried 'installing' audio driver with the default windows 10 audio driver instead of the realtek one. I have tried adjusting the sample rate in the advanced properties tab.
What can I do to get sound working in my headphones again and not just the speakers.
I'm trying to make the In-game sounds and every other system sounds sound in the speaker, and the Skype/TS/Raidcall (i'm using raidcall) in the headset but i don't know how to make it. I know i can make the Raidcall sound in the headset in the configurations, but i don't know how to make Windows (win10) and every other sound to sound in the speakers. I'm using the Realtek audio (Gigabyte Z97-Gaming 5 MOBO).
Today when I plugged in my earphones (the apple ones) and there was no audio at all, but somehow it worked totally fine without the earphones. Even realtek detected something when I plugged my earphones, I also went to device manager to check if every driver is updated or not but still ended up no luck.
things i know: - Audio is perfect without earphones plugged in - only 'Speakers' is shown as my playback device - went to device manager and i'm pretty sure all drivers are up to date and enabled - everything was working fine the last time i booted into my windows10 (dual booting with linux) - realtek detected my earphone as it popped up a notification saying 'you just plugged a device into the audio jack'
I have a Fangbook III made by Cyperpower PC. I am unable to play sound via the on-board speakers for the laptop. I am however able to play sound through the 3.5mm auxiliary jack input. I have speakers set as default device under the playback settings.
This is where is gets strange. Whenever I attempt to delete the Realtek audio driver, whether it is through windows or a 3rd-party driver uninstallation software, Realtek always comes back within a few seconds. Right before it does come back, under playback, it separates speakers and headphones with both having the driver High Definition Audio Device. If I hurry before the Realtek driver comes back the speakers seems to work! But once the Realtek audio speakers comes back, the default speakers and headphones goes away and I continue to have the same problem with the Realtek driver.
I attempted to reformat the computer with windows 10 and erase all drivers but Realtek was already installed. I assume it is required for this specific laptop? How to direct the Reaktek High Definition Audio driver to use the speakers instead of the auxiliary jack?
I set up a wake-up alarm in the Computer management --> Task Scheduler that automatically plays a custom mp3 every morning at 7AM.The speaker is in my monitor and it goes sleep 10 min after idle. It's ok, I don't want to keep it turned on for whole nights. But, when the scheduled alarm comes, it does not automatically turn back on the monitor and therefore its speaker doesn't play the MP3 because the monitor remains in sleep.I tired various ways to make the alarm turn the monitor back on but failed.I just need my music file played as an alarm in the mornings.
I installed window 10 today and cannot play any CDas there is no sound. DVD picture is fine but no sound. My computer is a Dell PC 260 and has AMD 6450 card. I tried very hard to make it work. I don't where the problem is. I had window7 before and had no problem with any thing.
