I recently purchased Dell Inspiron 5520 Model. It's got Windows 8 Pro installed on it. But the speakers don't play. When I plug in the headphones they do work. I do think that I have installed the recommended audio drivers from dell website.
Please Find me some solution. I'm attaching some screenshots which i think might help.
Hello. I can't quite tell from the screen shots which is the default playback device. On the Playback tab of the Sound properties make sure that the Conexant speakers are set as the default Playback device. If they are set as a Communication device change that to Playback device. Make sure that HDMI audio is not the default Playback device. I don't have a good screen shot but it is something like this if you can make it out:
If that doesn't help then try re-installing the Conexant audio driver again. Re-installing it will reset its configuration settings to their normal defaults which would have the audio going to the speakers.
If none of this works you could have a hardware defect that can happen to laptops with HD audio.
Warning!!! Tech Support will refuse warranty service for speaker problems if the VLC media player is installed on the laptop. This exclusion is NOT disclosed in the laptop warranty! Remove all players before contacting Tech Support, leaving only Windows Media Player.
There is a possibility that you have the hardware issue described in section 1 of the Headphone Jack FAQ.
Note that the article mentions Dell (32 bit) Diagnostics audio tests. Your model might not have that particular test. Without it, it is difficult to diagnose -- it becomes mostly a matter of elimination. You try everything else and if nothing else helps then this is it.
Sir the problem is solved. Actually the speaker wasn't connected to mother board hence no response.
Sir I need your help again.
Can you tell me which driver i need to install in order to get my wifi and bluetooth working ??
model: Inspiron 15R 5520
OS: WINDOWS 8 PRO
Glad that the speaker problem was fixed. For bluetooth connection problems I suggest that you post on the Networking discussion board where they might be able to help you sort out those kind of problems.
I have the same problem my headphones work but speaker does not can you explain how your problem got solved?
While you are awaiting a response from SahilDS, I will just point out that he said the speaker was not connected to the motherboard. In a situation like that, the owner can get Dell to perform the repair or the owner himself can connect the speaker cable to the motherboard. There are service manuals available for downloading for each laptop model. The manuals show where the connection is and how to dis-assemble the laptop. However it is better to let Dell do it if still under warranty.
